      [POWERPC] Flush registers to proper task context · 0ee6c15e
      Kumar Gala authored
      When we flush register state for FP, Altivec, or SPE in flush_*_to_thread
      we need to respect the task_struct that the caller has passed to us.
      Most cases we are called with current, however sometimes (ptrace) we may
      be passed a different task_struct.
      This showed up when using gdbserver debugging a simple program that used
      floating point. When gdb tried to show the FP regs they all showed up as
      0, because the child's FP registers were never properly flushed to memory.

      Without this, we get qla2xxx complaining about "ISP System Error".
      What's happening here is the firmware is detecting a Xfer-ready from the
      storage when in fact the data-direction for a mode-select should be a
      write (DATA_OUT).
      The following patch fixes the problem (typo). Verified by Brian, as

      fix bogus hotplug cpu warning · d243769d
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Fix bogus DEBUG_PREEMPT warning on x86_64, when cpu brought online after
      bootup: current_is_keventd is right to note its use of smp_processor_id
      is preempt-safe, but should use raw_smp_processor_id to avoid the warning.

      reverse CONFIG_ACPI_PROC_EVENT default · 721ebe00
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Sigh.  Again an ACPI assault on the Thinkpad's Fn+F4 to suspend to RAM.
      The default and text for CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED were fixed
      in -rc3, but now commit 14e04fb3
      Schedule /proc/acpi/event for removal") introduces the ACPI_PROC_EVENT
      config entry, and defaults it to 'n' to disable it again.
      Change default to y, and add comment to make it clearer that n is for
      future distros.

      fix maxcpus=N parsing · 81340977
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Commit 61ec7567
       ('ACPI: boot correctly
      with "nosmp" or "maxcpus=0"') broke 'maxcpus=' handling on x86[-64].
      maxcpus=N is now having no effect on x86_64, and freezing bootup on i386
      (because of inconsistency with the separate maxcpus parsing down in
      arch/i386, I guess).  That's because early_param parsing is a little
      different from __setup parsing, and needs the "=" omitted: then it seems
      to work as the original commit intended (no mention of IO-APIC in
      /proc/interrupts when maxcpus=0).
