      X86: drivers: remove __dev* attributes. · a18e3690
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option.  As a result, the __dev*
      markings need to be removed.
      This change removes the use of __devinit, __devexit_p, __devinitconst,
      and __devexit from these drivers.
      Based on patches originally written by Bill Pemberton, but redone by me
      in order to handle some of the coding style issues better, by hand.

      Revert "ACPI / x86: Add quirk for "CheckPoint P-20-00" to not use bridge _CRS_ info" · bacaf7cd
      Rafael J. Wysocki authored
      This reverts commit 0a290ac4 on
      the basis of the following comment from Bjorn Helgaas:
        Here's my reasoning: this is a CheckPoint product, and it looks
        like an appliance, not really a general-purpose machine.  The issue
        has apparently been there from day one, and the kernel shipped on
        the machine complains noisily about the issue, but apparently
        nobody bothered to investigate it.
        This corruption will clearly break other ACPI-related things.  We
        can sort of work around this one (though the workaround does
        prevent us from doing any PCI resource reassignment), but we have
        no idea what the other lurking ACPI issues are (and we have no
        assurance that *only* ACPI things are broken -- maybe the
        memory corruption affects other unknown things).  It may take
        significant debugging effort to identify the next problem.
        The only report I've seen (this one) is apparently from a
        CheckPoint employee, so it's not clear that anybody else is trying
        to run upstream Linux on it.  Being a CheckPoint employee, [...]
        is probably in a position to get the BIOS fixed.
        You might still be able to convince me, but it seems like the
        benefit to a quirk for this platform is small, and it does cost
        everybody else something in code size and complexity.

      x86/PCI: Allow x86 platforms to use translation offsets · b4873931
      Mike Yoknis authored
      The memory range descriptors in the _CRS control method contain an address
      translation offset for host bridges.  This value is used to translate
      addresses across the bridge.  The support to use _TRA values is present for
      other architectures but not for X86 platforms.
      For existing X86 platforms the _TRA value is zero.  Non-zero _TRA values
      are expected on future X86 platforms.  This change will register that value
      with the resource.

      x86/PCI: Ignore _SEG on HP xw9300 · 1f09b09b
      Bjorn Helgaas authored
      The xw9300 BIOS supplies _SEG methods that are incorrect, which results
      in some LSI SCSI devices not being discovered.  This adds a quirk to
      ignore _SEG on this machine and default to zero.
      The xw9300 has three host bridges:
          ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (domain 0000 [bus 00-3f])
          ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI1] (domain 0001 [bus 40-7f])
          ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI2] (domain 0002 [bus 80-ff])
      When the BIOS "ACPI Bus Segmentation" option is enabled (as it is by
      default), the _SEG methods of the PCI1 and PCI2 bridges return 1 and 2,
      respectively.  However, the BIOS implementation appears to be incomplete,
      and we can't enumerate devices in those domains.
      But if we assume PCI1 and PCI2 really lead to buses in domain 0,
      everything works fine.  Windows XP and Vista also seem to ignore
      these _SEG methods.

      PCI: Set PCI-E Max Payload Size on fabric · b03e7495
      Jon Mason authored
      On a given PCI-E fabric, each device, bridge, and root port can have a
      different PCI-E maximum payload size.  There is a sizable performance
      boost for having the largest possible maximum payload size on each PCI-E
      device.  However, if improperly configured, fatal bus errors can occur.
      Thus, it is important to ensure that PCI-E payloads sends by a device
      are never larger than the MPS setting of all devices on the way to the
      This can be achieved two ways:
      - A conservative approach is to use the smallest common denominator of
        the entire tree below a root complex for every device on that fabric.
      This means for example that having a 128 bytes MPS USB controller on one
      leg of a switch will dramatically reduce performances of a video card or
      10GE adapter on another leg of that same switch.
      It also means that any hierarchy supporting hotplug slots (including
      expresscard or thunderbolt I suppose, dbl check that) will have to be
      entirely clamped to 128 bytes since we cannot predict what will be
      plugged into those slots, and we cannot change the MPS on a "live"
      - A more optimal way is possible, if it falls within a couple of
      * The top-level host bridge will never generate packets larger than the
        smallest TLP (or if it can be controlled independently from its MPS at
      * The device will never generate packets larger than MPS (which can be
        configured via MRRS)
      * No support of direct PCI-E <-> PCI-E transfers between devices without
        some additional code to specifically deal with that case
      Then we can use an approach that basically ignores downstream requests
      and focuses exclusively on upstream requests. In that case, all we need
      to care about is that a device MPS is no larger than its parent MPS,
      which allows us to keep all switches/bridges to the max MPS supported by
      their parent and eventually the PHB.
      In this case, your USB controller would no longer "starve" your 10GE
      Ethernet and your hotplug slots won't affect your global MPS.
      Additionally, the hotplugged devices themselves can be configured to a
      larger MPS up to the value configured in the hotplug bridge.
      To choose between the two available options, two PCI kernel boot args
      have been added to the PCI calls.  "pcie_bus_safe" will provide the
      former behavior, while "pcie_bus_perf" will perform the latter behavior.
      By default, the latter behavior is used.
      NOTE: due to the location of the enablement, each arch will need to add
      calls to this function.  This patch only enables x86.

      x86/PCI: coalesce overlapping host bridge windows · 4723d0f2
      Bjorn Helgaas authored
      Some BIOSes provide PCI host bridge windows that overlap, e.g.,
          pci_root PNP0A03:00: host bridge window [mem 0xb0000000-0xffffffff]
          pci_root PNP0A03:00: host bridge window [mem 0xafffffff-0xdfffffff]
          pci_root PNP0A03:00: host bridge window [mem 0xf0000000-0xffffffff]
      If we simply insert these as children of iomem_resource, the second window
      fails because it conflicts with the first, and the third is inserted as a
      child of the first, i.e.,
          b0000000-ffffffff PCI Bus 0000:00
            f0000000-ffffffff PCI Bus 0000:00
      When we claim PCI device resources, this can cause collisions like this
      if we put them in the first window:
          pci 0000:00:01.0: address space collision: [mem 0xff300000-0xff4fffff] conflicts with PCI Bus 0000:00 [mem 0xf0000000-0xffffffff]
      Host bridge windows are top-level resources by definition, so it doesn't
      make sense to make the third window a child of the first.  This patch
      coalesces any host bridge windows that overlap.  For the example above,
      the result is this single window:
          pci_root PNP0A03:00: host bridge window [mem 0xafffffff-0xffffffff]
      This fixes a 2.6.34 regression.

      x86/PCI: use host bridge _CRS info on ASRock ALiveSATA2-GLAN · 2491762c
      Bjorn Helgaas authored
      This DMI quirk turns on "pci=use_crs" for the ALiveSATA2-GLAN because
      amd_bus.c doesn't handle this system correctly.
      The system has a single HyperTransport I/O chain, but has two PCI host
      bridges to buses 00 and 80.  amd_bus.c learns the MMIO range associated
      with buses 00-ff and that this range is routed to the HT chain hosted at
      node 0, link 0:
          bus: [00, ff] on node 0 link 0
          bus: 00 index 1 [mem 0x80000000-0xfcffffffff]
      This includes the address space for both bus 00 and bus 80, and amd_bus.c
      assumes it's all routed to bus 00.
      We find device 80:01.0, which BIOS left in the middle of that space, but
      we don't find a bridge from bus 00 to bus 80, so we conclude that 80:01.0
      is unreachable from bus 00, and we move it from the original, working,
      address to something outside the bus 00 aperture, which does not work:
          pci 0000:80:01.0: reg 10: [mem 0xfebfc000-0xfebfffff 64bit]
          pci 0000:80:01.0: BAR 0: assigned [mem 0xfd00000000-0xfd00003fff 64bit]
      The BIOS told us everything we need to know to handle this correctly,
      so we're better off if we just pay attention, which lets us leave the
      80:01.0 device at the original, working, address:
          ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (domain 0000 [bus 00-7f])
          pci_root PNP0A03:00: host bridge window [mem 0x80000000-0xff37ffff]
          ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI1] (domain 0000 [bus 80-ff])
          pci_root PNP0A08:00: host bridge window [mem 0xfebfc000-0xfebfffff]
      This was a regression between 2.6.33 and 2.6.34.  In 2.6.33, amd_bus.c
      was used only when we found multiple HT chains.  3e3da00c, which
      enabled amd_bus.c even on systems with a single HT chain, caused this
      This quirk was written by Graham.  If we ever enable "pci=use_crs" for
      machines from 2006 or earlir, this quirk should be removed.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.
