      Virtio interface · ec3d41c4
      Rusty Russell authored
      This attempts to implement a "virtual I/O" layer which should allow
      common drivers to be efficiently used across most virtual I/O
      mechanisms.  It will no-doubt need further enhancement.
      
      The virtio drivers add buffers to virtio queues; as the buffers are consumed
      the driver "interrupt" callbacks are invoked.
      
      There is also a generic implementation of config space which drivers can query
      to get setup information from the host.

      i2c: Kill struct i2c_device_id · cee37ae4
      Jean Delvare authored
      I2C devices do not have any form of ID as PCI or USB devices have.
      No driver uses "MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(i2c, ...)" because it doesn't
      make sense. So we can get rid of struct i2c_device_id and the
      associated support code.

      kbuild: remove dependency on input.h from file2alias · dc24f0e7
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      Almost all definitions used by file2alias was already
      present in mod_devicetable.h.
      Added the last definition and killed the input.h usage.

      [PATCH] EISA bus MODALIAS attributes support · 07563c71
      Michael Tokarev authored
      Add modalias attribute support for the almost forgotten now EISA bus and
      (at least some) EISA-aware modules.
      
      The modalias entry looks like (for an 3c509 NIC):
      
       eisa:sTCM5093
      
      and the in-module alias like:
      
       eisa:sTCM5093*
      
      The patch moves struct eisa_device_id declaration from include/linux/eisa.h
      to include/linux/mod_devicetable.h (so that the former now #includes the
      latter), adds proper MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(eisa, ...) statements for all
      drivers with EISA IDs I found (some drivers already have that DEVICE_TABLE
      declared), and adds recognision of __mod_eisa_device_table to
      scripts/mod/file2alias.c so that proper modules.alias will be generated.
      
      There's no support for /lib/modules/$kver/modules.eisamap, as it's not used
      by any existing tools, and because with in-kernel modalias mechanism those
      maps are obsolete anyway.
      
      The rationale for this patch is:
      
       a) to make EISA bus to act as other busses with modalias
          support, to unify driver loading
      
       b) to foget about EISA finally - with this patch, kernel
          (who still supports EISA) will be the only one who knows
          how to choose the necessary drivers for this bus ;)

      [S390] zcrypt adjunct processor bus. · 1534c382
      Martin Schwidefsky authored
      Add a bus for the adjunct processor interface. Up to 64 devices can
      be connect to the ap bus interface, each device with 16 domains. That
      makes 1024 message queues. The interface is asynchronous, the answer
      to a message sent to a queue needs to be received at some later point
      in time. Unfortunately the interface does not provide interrupts when
      a message reply is pending. So the ap bus needs to implement some
      fancy polling, each active queue is polled once per 1/HZ second or
      continuously if an idle cpus exsists and the poll thread is activ
      (see poll_thread parameter).
      
      The ap bus uses the sysfs path /sys/bus/ap and has two bus attributes,
      ap_domain and config_time. The ap_domain selects one of the 16 domains
      to be used for this system. This limits the maximum number of ap devices
      to 64. The config_time attribute contains the number of seconds between
      two ap bus scans to find new devices.
      
      The ap bus uses the modalias entries of the form "ap:tN" to autoload
      the ap driver for hardware type N. Currently known types are:
      3 - PCICC, 4 - PCICA, 5 - PCIXCC, 6 - CEX2A and 7 - CEX2C.

      [PATCH] mod_devicetable.h fixes · 9e2d3cd3
      Al Viro authored
       * ieee1394_device_id has kernel_ulong_t field after an odd number of
         __u32 ones.  Since mod_devicetable.h is included both from kernel and
         from host build helper, we may be in trouble if we are building on
         32bit host for 64bit target - userland sees unsigned long long,
         kernel sees unsigned long and while their sizes match, alignments
         might not.  Fixed by forcing alignment.  Fortunately, almost nobody
         else needs that - the rest of such fields is naturally aligned as it
         is.
      
       * of_device_id has void * in it.  Host userland helpers need
         kernel_ulong_t instead, since their void * might have nothing to do
         with the kernel one.  Fixed in the same way it's done for similar
         problems in pcmcia_device_id (ifdef __KERNEL__).
      
       * pcmcia_device_id has the same problem as ieee1394_device_id.  Fixed
         the same way.

      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!
