      [IA64-SGI] set altix preferred console · ff51224c
      Mark Maule authored
      
      
      Fix default VGA console on SN platforms.  Since SN firmware does not pass
      enough ACPI information to identify VGA cards and the associated legacy IO/MEM
      addresses, we rely on the EFI PCDP table.  Since the linux pcdp driver is
      optional (and overridden if console= directives are used) SN duplicates a
      portion of the pcdp scan code to identify if there is a usable console VGA
      adapter.  Additionally, dup necessary pcdp related structs to avoid dragging
      drivers/pcdp.h into a more public location.

      [IA64] - Avoid slow TLB purges on SGI Altix systems · c1902aae
      Dean Roe authored
      
      
      flush_tlb_all() can be a scaling issue on large SGI Altix systems
      since it uses the global call_lock and always executes on all cpus.
      When a process enters flush_tlb_range() to purge TLBs for another
      process, it is possible to avoid flush_tlb_all() and instead allow
      sn2_global_tlb_purge() to purge TLBs only where necessary.
      
      This patch modifies flush_tlb_range() so that this case can be handled
      by platform TLB purge functions and updates ia64_global_tlb_purge()
      accordingly.  sn2_global_tlb_purge() now calculates the region register
      value from the mm argument introduced with this patch.

      [IA64] Cleanup use of various #defines related to nodes · 24ee0a6d
      Jack Steiner authored
      
      
      Some of the SN code & #defines related to compact nodes & IO discovery
      have gotten stale over the years. This patch attempts to clean them up.
      Some of the various SN MAX_xxx #defines were also unclear & misused.
      
      The primary changes are:
      
      	- use MAX_NUMNODES. This is the generic linux #define for the number
      	  of nodes that are known to the generic kernel. Arrays & loops
      	  for constructs that are 1:1 with linux-defined nodes should
      	  use the linux #define - not an SN equivalent.
      
      	- use MAX_COMPACT_NODES for MAX_NUMNODES + NUM_TIOS. This is the
      	  number of nodes in the SSI system. Compact nodes are a hack to
      	  get around the IA64 architectural limit of 256 nodes. Large SGI
      	  systems have more than 256 nodes. When we upgrade to ACPI3.0,
      	  I _hope_ that all nodes will be real nodes that are known to
      	  the generic kernel. That will allow us to delete the notion
      	  of "compact nodes".
      
      	- add MAX_NUMALINK_NODES for the total number of nodes that
      	  are in the numalink domain - all partitions.
      
      	- simplified (understandable) scan_for_ionodes()
      
      	- small amount of cleanup related to cnodes

      [IA64] Altix pcibus_to_node implementation · 7c2a6c62
      Christoph Lameter authored
      
      
      The Altix subarch does not provide node information via ACPI. Instead hooks
      are used to fixup pci structures. This patch determines the nodes for Altix
      PCI busses.
      
      Remote Bridges:
      ---------------
      Altix supports remote I/O nodes without memory or processors but with bridges.
      The TIOCA type of bridge is an AGP bridge and the PROM provides information
      about the closest node. That information will be returned by pcibus_to_node.
      
      The TIOCP remote bridge type is a PCI bridge but the PROM does not provide a
      closest node id. pcibus_to_node will return -1 for devices on those bridges
      meaning that device control structures may be allocated on any node.
      
      Safeguard:
      ----------
      Should the fixups result in invalid node information for a pci controller then
      a warning will be printed and pcibus_to_node will return -1.
      
      
      This patch also fixes the "FIXME" in sn_dma_alloc_coherent. This means that
      dma_alloc_coherent will now use alloc_pages_node to allocate memory local to
      the node that the PCI device is connected to.
