      netdevice: safe convert to netdev_priv() #part-2 · 4cf1653a
      Wang Chen authored
      We have some reasons to kill netdev->priv:
      1. netdev->priv is equal to netdev_priv().
      2. netdev_priv() wraps the calculation of netdev->priv's offset, obviously
         netdev_priv() is more flexible than netdev->priv.
      But we cann't kill netdev->priv, because so many drivers reference to it
      This patch is a safe convert for netdev->priv to netdev_priv(netdev).
      Since all of the netdev->priv is only for read.
      But it is too big to be sent in one mail.
      I split it to 4 parts and make every part smaller than 100,000 bytes,
      which is max size allowed by vger.

      e1000e: avoid duplicated output of device name in kernel warning · 6c2a9efa
      Frans Pop authored
      With 2.6.27-rc3 I noticed the following messages in my boot log:
      0000:01:00.0: 0000:01:00.0: Warning: detected DSPD enabled in EEPROM
      0000:01:00.0: eth0: (PCI Express:2.5GB/s:Width x1) 00:16:76:04:ff:09
      The second seems correct, but the first has a silly repetition of the
      PCI device before the actual message. The message originates from
      e1000_eeprom_checks in e1000e/netdev.c.
      With this patch below the first message becomes
        e1000e 0000:01:00.0: Warning: detected DSPD enabled in EEPROM
      which makes it similar to directly preceding messages.
      Use dev_warn instead of e_warn in e1000_eeprom_checks() as the interface
      name has not yet been assigned at that point.

      dma-mapping: add the device argument to dma_mapping_error() · 8d8bb39b
      FUJITA Tomonori authored
      Add per-device dma_mapping_ops support for CONFIG_X86_64 as POWER
      architecture does:
      This enables us to cleanly fix the Calgary IOMMU issue that some devices
      are not behind the IOMMU (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/5/8/423
      I think that per-device dma_mapping_ops support would be also helpful for
      KVM people to support PCI passthrough but Andi thinks that this makes it
      difficult to support the PCI passthrough (see the above thread).  So I
      CC'ed this to KVM camp.  Comments are appreciated.
      A pointer to dma_mapping_ops to struct dev_archdata is added.  If the
      pointer is non NULL, DMA operations in asm/dma-mapping.h use it.  If it's
      NULL, the system-wide dma_ops pointer is used as before.
      If it's useful for KVM people, I plan to implement a mechanism to register
      a hook called when a new pci (or dma capable) device is created (it works
      with hot plugging).  It enables IOMMUs to set up an appropriate
      dma_mapping_ops per device.
      The major obstacle is that dma_mapping_error doesn't take a pointer to the
      device unlike other DMA operations.  So x86 can't have dma_mapping_ops per
      device.  Note all the POWER IOMMUs use the same dma_mapping_error function
      so this is not a problem for POWER but x86 IOMMUs use different
      dma_mapping_error functions.
      The first patch adds the device argument to dma_mapping_error.  The patch
      is trivial but large since it touches lots of drivers and dma-mapping.h in
      all the architecture.
      This patch:
      dma_mapping_error() doesn't take a pointer to the device unlike other DMA
      operations.  So we can't have dma_mapping_ops per device.
      Note that POWER already has dma_mapping_ops per device but all the POWER
      IOMMUs use the same dma_mapping_error function.  x86 IOMMUs use device

      e1000e: fix e1000_netpoll(), remove extraneous e1000_clean_tx_irq() call · e8ebe3b8
      Ingo Molnar authored
      Evgeniy Polyakov noticed that drivers/net/e1000e/netdev.c:e1000_netpoll()
      was calling e1000_clean_tx_irq() without taking the TX lock.
      David Miller suggested to remove the call altogether: since in this
      callpah there's periodic calls to ->poll() anyway which will do
      e1000_clean_tx_irq() and will garbage-collect any finished TX ring
      This fix solved the e1000e+netconsole crashes i've been seeing:
