      Here function vmi_activate calls a init function activate_vmi , which

      x86: unmask CPUID levels on Intel CPUs, fix · 99fb4d34
      Ingo Molnar authored
      Impact: fix boot hang on pre-model-15 Intel CPUs
      rdmsrl_safe() does not work in very early bootup code yet, because we
      dont have the pagefault handler installed yet so exception section
      does not get parsed. rdmsr_safe() will just crash and hang the bootup.
      So limit the MSR_IA32_MISC_ENABLE MSR read to those CPU types that
      support it.

      x86: work around PAGE_KERNEL_WC not getting WC in iomap_atomic_prot_pfn. · ef5fa0ab
      Eric Anholt authored
      In the absence of PAT, PAGE_KERNEL_WC ends up mapping to a memory type that
      gets UC behavior even in the presence of a WC MTRR covering the area in
      question.  By swapping to PAGE_KERNEL_UC_MINUS, we can get the actual
      behavior the caller wanted (WC if you can manage it, UC otherwise).
      This recovers the 40% performance improvement of using WC in the DRM
      to upload vertex data.

      x86: use standard PIT frequency · e1b4d114
      Ingo Molnar authored
      the RDC and ELAN platforms use slighly different PIT clocks, resulting in
      a timex.h hack that changes PIT_TICK_RATE during build time. But if a
      tester enables any of these platform support .config options, the PIT
      will be miscalibrated on standard PC platforms.
      So use one frequency - in a subsequent patch we'll add a quirk to allow
      x86 platforms to define different PIT frequencies.

      This is the case where a concurrent fault already installed the PTE and
      we get to free the newly allocated one.
      This is due to pgtable_page_ctor() doing the spin_lock_init(&page->ptl)
      which is overlaid with the {private, mapping} struct.
      union {
          struct {
              unsigned long private;
              struct address_space *mapping;
          spinlock_t ptl;
          struct kmem_cache *slab;
          struct page *first_page;
      Normally the spinlock is small enough to not stomp on page->mapping, but
      PREEMPT_RT=y has huge 'spin'locks.
      But lockdep kernels should also be able to trigger this splat, as the
      lock tracking code grows the spinlock to cover page->mapping.
      The obvious fix is calling pgtable_page_dtor() like the regular pte free
      path __pte_free_tlb() does.
      It seems all architectures except x86 and nm10300 already do this, and
      nm10300 doesn't seem to use pgtable_page_ctor(), which suggests it
      doesn't do SMP or simply doesnt do MMU at all or something.

      [S390] etr/stp: fix possible deadlock · 179cb81a
      Heiko Carstens authored
      Precreate stop_machine threads in case the machine supports ETR/STP.
      Otherwise we might deadlock if a time sync operation gets scheduled
      and the creation of stop_machine threads would cause disk I/O.
      This is just the minimal fix.
      The real fix would be to only precreate stop_machine threads if
      ETR/STP is actually used. But that would be a rather large and
      complicated patch.

      [S390] cputime: fix lowcore initialization on cpu hotplug · f9a2f797
      Heiko Carstens authored
      On (initial) cpu hotplug the lowcore values for user_timer and
      system_timer don't get initialized like they would get on each
      process schedule.
      On initial start of secondary cpus this leads to the situation
      where per thread user/system_timer values are larger than the
      corresponding contents of the lowcore. When later calculating
      time spent in user/system context the result can be negative.
      So for cpu hotplug we should manually initialize lowcore values.

      [S390] fix compat sigaltstack syscall table entry · e9a4e9d5
      Michael Holzheu authored
      When 31 bit user space programs call sigaltstack on a 64 bit Linux
      OS, the system call returns -1 with errno=EFAULT. The 31 bit pointer passed
      to the system call is extended to 64 bit, but the high order bits are not
      set to zero. The kernel detects the invalid user space pointer and
      returns -EFAULT. To solve the problem, sys32_sigaltstack_wrapper()
      instead of sys32_sigaltstack() has to be called. The wrapper function sets
      the high order bits to zero.

      x86: remove kernel_physical_mapping_init() from init section · f5495506
      Gary Hade authored
      Impact: fix crash with memory hotplug enabled
      kernel_physical_mapping_init() is called during memory hotplug
      so it does not belong in the init section.
      If the kernel is built with CONFIG_DEBUG_SECTION_MISMATCH=y on
      the make command line, arch/x86/mm/init_64.c is compiled with
      the -fno-inline-functions-called-once gcc option defeating
      inlining of kernel_physical_mapping_init() within init_memory_mapping().
      When kernel_physical_mapping_init() is not inlined it is placed
      in the .init.text section according to the __init in it's current
      declaration.  A later call to kernel_physical_mapping_init() during
      a memory hotplug operation encounters an int3 trap because the
      .init.text section memory has been freed.
      This patch eliminates the crash caused by the int3 trap by moving the
      non-inlined kernel_physical_mapping_init() from .init.text to .meminit.text.

      i.MX31: Image Processing Unit DMA and IRQ drivers · 5296b56d
      Guennadi Liakhovetski authored
      i.MX3x SoCs contain an Image Processing Unit, consisting of a Control
      Module (CM), Display Interface (DI), Synchronous Display Controller (SDC),
      Asynchronous Display Controller (ADC), Image Converter (IC), Post-Filter
      (PF), Camera Sensor Interface (CSI), and an Image DMA Controller (IDMAC).
      CM contains, among other blocks, an Interrupt Generator (IG) and a Clock
      and Reset Control Unit (CRCU). This driver serves IDMAC and IG. They are
      supported over dmaengine and irq-chip APIs respectively.
      IDMAC is a specialised DMA controller, its DMA channels cannot be used for
      general-purpose operations, even though it might be possible to configure
      a memory-to-memory channel for memcpy operation. This driver will not work
      with generic dmaengine clients, clients, wishing to use it must use
      respective wrapper structures, they also must specify which channels they
      require, as channels are hard-wired to specific IPU functions.
