      [PATCH] sched: disable preempt in idle tasks · 5bfb5d69
      Nick Piggin authored
      
      
      Run idle threads with preempt disabled.
      
      Also corrected a bugs in arm26's cpu_idle (make it actually call schedule()).
      How did it ever work before?
      
      Might fix the CPU hotplugging hang which Nigel Cunningham noted.
      
      We think the bug hits if the idle thread is preempted after checking
      need_resched() and before going to sleep, then the CPU offlined.
      
      After calling stop_machine_run, the CPU eventually returns from preemption and
      into the idle thread and goes to sleep.  The CPU will continue executing
      previous idle and have no chance to call play_dead.
      
      By disabling preemption until we are ready to explicitly schedule, this bug is
      fixed and the idle threads generally become more robust.

      [PATCH] i386: move apic init in init_IRQs · f2b36db6
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      
      
      All kinds of ugliness exists because we don't initialize
      the apics during init_IRQs.
      - We calibrate jiffies in non apic mode even when we are using apics.
      - We have to have special code to initialize the apics when non-smp.
      - The legacy i8259 must exist and be setup correctly, even
        when we won't use it past initialization.
      - The kexec on panic code must restore the state of the io_apics.
      - init/main.c needs a special case for !smp smp_init on x86
      
      In addition to pure code movement I needed a couple
      of non-obvious changes:
      - Move setup_boot_APIC_clock into APIC_late_time_init for
        simplicity.
      - Use cpu_khz to generate a better approximation of loops_per_jiffies
        so I can verify the timer interrupt is working.
      - Call setup_apic_nmi_watchdog again after cpu_khz is initialized on
        the boot cpu.

      [PATCH] node local per-cpu-pages · e7c8d5c9
      Christoph Lameter authored
      
      
      This patch modifies the way pagesets in struct zone are managed.
      
      Each zone has a per-cpu array of pagesets.  So any particular CPU has some
      memory in each zone structure which belongs to itself.  Even if that CPU is
      not local to that zone.
      
      So the patch relocates the pagesets for each cpu to the node that is nearest
      to the cpu instead of allocating the pagesets in the (possibly remote) target
      zone.  This means that the operations to manage pages on remote zone can be
      done with information available locally.
      
      We play a macro trick so that non-NUMA pmachines avoid the additional
      pointer chase on the page allocator fastpath.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
