      atm: br2684: Fix excessive queue bloat · ae088d66
      David Woodhouse authored
      There's really no excuse for an additional wmem_default of buffering
      between the netdev queue and the ATM device. Two packets (one in-flight,
      and one ready to send) ought to be fine. It's not as if it should take
      long to get another from the netdev queue when we need it.
      If necessary we can make the queue space configurable later, but I don't
      think it's likely to be necessary.
      cf. commit 9d02daf7 (pppoatm: Fix
      excessive queue bloat) which did something very similar for PPPoATM.
      Note that there is a tremendously unlikely race condition which may
      result in qspace temporarily going negative. If a CPU running the
      br2684_pop() function goes off into the weeds for a long period of time
      after incrementing qspace to 1, but before calling netdev_wake_queue()...
      and another CPU ends up calling br2684_start_xmit() and *stopping* the
      queue again before the first CPU comes back, the netdev queue could
      end up being woken when qspace has already reached zero.
      An alternative approach to coping with this race would be to check in
      br2684_start_xmit() for qspace==0 and return NETDEV_TX_BUSY, but just
      using '> 0' and '< 1' for comparison instead of '== 0' and '!= 0' is
      simpler. It just warranted a mention of *why* we do it that way...
      Move the call to atmvcc->send() to happen *after* the accounting and
      potentially stopping the netdev queue, in br2684_xmit_vcc(). This matters
      if the ->send() call suffers an immediate failure, because it'll call
      br2684_pop() with the offending skb before returning. We want that to
      happen *after* we've done the initial accounting for the packet in
      question. Also make it return an appropriate success/failure indication
      while we're at it.
      Tested by running 'ping -l 1000 bottomless.aaisp.net.uk' from within my
      network, with only a single PPPoE-over-BR2684 link running. And after
      setting txqueuelen on the nas0 interface to something low (5, in fact).
      Before the patch, we'd see about 15 packets being queued and a resulting
      latency of ~56ms being reached. After the patch, we see only about 8,
      which is fairly much what we expect. And a max latency of ~36ms. On this
      OpenWRT box, wmem_default is 163840.

      dsa: Hide core config options; make drivers select what they need · b3422a31
      Ben Hutchings authored
      Commit 82167cb8 ('net: dsa/slave: Fix
      compilation warnings') fixed one possible invalid configuration
      (NET_DSA enabled with no trailer formats) but added others: drivers
      can select NET_DSA without its dependencies being met.
      It's not very useful to make either the DSA core or the tagging
      formats manually selectable without a driver to use them, so:
      1. Define a hidden HAVE_NET_DSA option and move the dependencies of
         NET_DSA to that.  While we're at it, drop the deprecated
         EXPERIMENTAL dependency.
      2. Make NET_DSA and the drivers dependent on HAVE_NET_DSA.
      3. Hide the tagging format options again.
      4. Make drivers select both NET_DSA and the appropriate tagging format

       "The most important part of this is that it fixes a regression in
        Samsung NAND chip detection, introduced by some rework which went into
        3.7.  The initial fix wasn't quite complete, so it's in two parts.  In
        fact the first part is committed twice (Artem committed his own copy
        of the same patch) and I've merged Artem's tree into mine which
        already had that fix.
        I'd have recommitted that to make it somewhat cleaner, but figured by
        this point in the release cycle it was better to merge *exactly* the
        commits which have been in linux-next.
        If I'd recommitted, I'd also omit the sparse warning fix.  But it's
        there, and it's harmless — just marking one function as 'static' in
        onenand code.
        This also includes a couple more fixes for stable: an AB-BA deadlock
        in JFFS2, and an invalid range check in slram."

      of/address: sparc: Declare of_iomap as an extern function for sparc again · 0e622d39
      Andreas Larsson authored
      This bug-fix makes sure that of_iomap is defined extern for sparc so that the
      sparc-specific implementation of_iomap is once again used when including
      include/linux/of_address.h in a sparc context. OF_GPIO that is now available for
      sparc relies on this.
      The bug was inadvertently introduced in a850a755, "of/address: add empty static
      inlines for !CONFIG_OF", that added a static dummy inline for of_iomap when
      !CONFIG_OF_ADDRESS. However, CONFIG_OF_ADDRESS is never defined for sparc, but
      there is a sparc-specific implementation /arch/sparc/kernel/of_device_common.c.
      This fix takes the same approach as 0bce04be that solved the equivalent problem
      for of_address_to_resource.
