      Pull DMA mapping branch from Marek Szyprowski:
       "Short summary for the whole series:
        A few limitations have been identified in the current dma-mapping
        design and its implementations for various architectures.  There exist
        more than one function for allocating and freeing the buffers:
        currently these 3 are used dma_{alloc, free}_coherent,
        dma_{alloc,free}_writecombine, dma_{alloc,free}_noncoherent.
        For most of the systems these calls are almost equivalent and can be
        interchanged.  For others, especially the truly non-coherent ones
        (like ARM), the difference can be easily noticed in overall driver
        performance.  Sadly not all architectures provide implementations for
        all of them, so the drivers might need to be adapted and cannot be
        easily shared between different architectures.  The provided patches
        unify all these functions and hide the differences under the already
        existing dma attributes concept.  The thread with more references is
        available here:
        These patches are also a prerequisite for unifying DMA-mapping
        implementation on ARM architecture with the common one provided by
        dma_map_ops structure and extending it with IOMMU support.  More
        information is available in the following thread:
        More works on dma-mapping framework are planned, especially in the
        area of buffer sharing and managing the shared mappings (together with
        the recently introduced dma_buf interface: commit d15bd7ee
        "dma-buf: Introduce dma buffer sharing mechanism").
        The patches in the current set introduce a new alloc/free methods
        (with support for memory attributes) in dma_map_ops structure, which
        will later replace dma_alloc_coherent and dma_alloc_writecombine
      People finally started piping up with support for merging this, so I'm
      merging it as the last of the pending stuff from the merge window.
      Looks like pohmelfs is going to wait for 3.5 and more external support
      for merging.

      Merge branch 'selinux' ("struct common_audit_data" sanitizer) · a5149bf3
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Merge common_audit_data cleanup patches from Eric Paris.
      This is really too late, but it's a long-overdue cleanup of the costly
      wrapper functions for the security layer.
      The "struct common_audit_data" is used all over in critical paths,
      allocated and initialized on the stack.  And used to be much too large,
      causing not only unnecessarily big stack frames but the clearing of the
      (mostly useless) data was also very visible in profiles.
      As a particular example, in one microbenchmark for just doing "stat()"
      over files a lot, selinux_inode_permission() used 7% of the CPU time.
      That's despite the fact that it doesn't actually *do* anything: it is
      just a helper wrapper function in the selinux security layer.
      This patch-series shrinks "struct common_audit_data" sufficiently that
      code generation for these kinds of wrapper functions is improved
      noticeably, and we spend much less time just initializing data that we
      will never use.
      The functions still get called all the time, and it still shows up at
      3.5+% in my microbenchmark, but it's quite a bit lower down the list,
      and much less noticeable.
      * Emailed patches from Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>:
        lsm_audit: don't specify the audit pre/post callbacks in 'struct common_audit_data'
        SELinux: do not allocate stack space for AVC data unless needed
        SELinux: remove avd from slow_avc_audit()
        SELinux: remove avd from selinux_audit_data
        LSM: shrink the common_audit_data data union
        LSM: shrink sizeof LSM specific portion of common_audit_data

      avr32: fix nop compile fails from system.h split up · 167d8215

      It needs an include of the new file created in commit ae473946
      ("Disintegrate asm/system.h for AVR32"), but since that file only
      contains "nop", and since other arch already have precedent of putting
