      ns: Wire up the setns system call · 7b21fddd
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      32bit and 64bit on x86 are tested and working.  The rest I have looked
      at closely and I can't find any problems.
      setns is an easy system call to wire up.  It just takes two ints so I
      don't expect any weird architecture porting problems.
      While doing this I have noticed that we have some architectures that are
      very slow to get new system calls.  cris seems to be the slowest where
      the last system calls wired up were preadv and pwritev.  avr32 is weird
      in that recvmmsg was wired up but never declared in unistd.h.  frv is
      behind with perf_event_open being the last syscall wired up.  On h8300
      the last system call wired up was epoll_wait.  On m32r the last system
      call wired up was fallocate.  mn10300 has recvmmsg as the last system
      call wired up.  The rest seem to at least have syncfs wired up which was
      new in the 2.6.39.
      v2: Most of the architecture support added by Daniel Lezcano <dlezcano@fr.ibm.com>
      v3: ported to v2.6.36-rc4 by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>
      v4: Moved wiring up of the system call to another patch
      v5: ported to v2.6.39-rc6
      v6: rebased onto parisc-next and net-next to avoid syscall  conflicts.
      v7: ported to Linus's latest post 2.6.39 tree.

      net: Add sendmmsg socket system call · 228e548e
      Anton Blanchard authored
      This patch adds a multiple message send syscall and is the send
      version of the existing recvmmsg syscall. This is heavily
      based on the patch by Arnaldo that added recvmmsg.
      I wrote a microbenchmark to test the performance gains of using
      this new syscall:
      The test was run on a ppc64 box with a 10 Gbit network card. The
      benchmark can send both UDP and RAW ethernet packets.
      64B UDP
      batch   pkts/sec
      1       804570
      2       872800 (+ 8 %)

      64      1557888 (+30 %)
      We see a 20% improvement in throughput on UDP send and 30%
      on raw socket send.

      Add generic sys_ipc wrapper · baed7fc9
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Add a generic implementation of the ipc demultiplexer syscall.  Except for
      s390 and sparc64 all implementations of the sys_ipc are nearly identical.
      There are slight differences in the types of the parameters, where mips
      and powerpc as the only 64-bit architectures with sys_ipc use unsigned
      long for the "third" argument as it gets casted to a pointer later, while
      it traditionally is an "int" like most other paramters.  frv goes even
      further and uses unsigned long for all parameters execept for "ptr" which
      is a pointer type everywhere.  The change from int to unsigned long for
      "third" and back to "int" for the others on frv should be fine due to the
      in-register calling conventions for syscalls (we already had a similar
      issue with the generic sys_ptrace), but I'd prefer to have the arch
      maintainers looks over this in details.
      Except for that h8300, m68k and m68knommu lack an impplementation of the
      semtimedop sub call which this patch adds, and various architectures have
      gets used - at least on i386 it seems superflous as the compat code on
      x86-64 and ia64 doesn't even bother to implement it.

      perf: Do the big rename: Performance Counters -> Performance Events · cdd6c482
      Ingo Molnar authored
      Bye-bye Performance Counters, welcome Performance Events!
      In the past few months the perfcounters subsystem has grown out its
      initial role of counting hardware events, and has become (and is
      becoming) a much broader generic event enumeration, reporting, logging,
      monitoring, analysis facility.
      Naming its core object 'perf_counter' and naming the subsystem
      'perfcounters' has become more and more of a misnomer. With pending
      code like hw-breakpoints support the 'counter' name is less and
      less appropriate.
      All in one, we've decided to rename the subsystem to 'performance
      events' and to propagate this rename through all fields, variables
      and API names. (in an ABI compatible fashion)
      The word 'event' is also a bit shorter than 'counter' - which makes
      it slightly more convenient to write/handle as well.
      Thanks goes to Stephane Eranian who first observed this misnomer and
      suggested a rename.
      User-space tooling and ABI compatibility is not affected - this patch
      should be function-invariant. (Also, defconfigs were not touched to
      keep the size down.)
      This patch has been generated via the following script:
        FILES=$(find * -type f | grep -vE 'oprofile|[^K]config')
        sed -i \
          -e 's/PERF_EVENT_/PERF_RECORD_/g' \
          -e 's/PERF_COUNTER/PERF_EVENT/g' \
          -e 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g' \
          -e 's/nb_counters/nb_events/g' \
          -e 's/swcounter/swevent/g' \
          -e 's/tpcounter_event/tp_event/g' \
        for N in $(find . -name perf_counter.[ch]); do
          M=$(echo $N | sed 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g')
          mv $N $M
        FILES=$(find . -name perf_event.*)
        sed -i \
          -e 's/COUNTER_MASK/REG_MASK/g' \
          -e 's/COUNTER/EVENT/g' \
          -e 's/\<event\>/event_id/g' \
          -e 's/counter/event/g' \
          -e 's/Counter/Event/g' \
      ... to keep it as correct as possible. This script can also be
      used by anyone who has pending perfcounters patches - it converts
      a Linux kernel tree over to the new naming. We tried to time this
      change to the point in time where the amount of pending patches
      is the smallest: the end of the merge window.
      Namespace clashes were fixed up in a preparatory patch - and some
      stylistic fallout will be fixed up in a subsequent patch.
      ( NOTE: 'counters' are still the proper terminology when we deal
        with hardware registers - and these sed scripts are a bit
        over-eager in renaming them. I've undone some of that, but
        in case there's something left where 'counter' would be
        better than 'event' we can undo that on an individual basis
        instead of touching an otherwise nicely automated patch. )

      sparc, sparc64: use arch/sparc/include · a439fe51
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      The majority of this patch was created by the following script:
      mkdir -p $ASM
      git mv include/asm-sparc64/ftrace.h $ASM
      git rm include/asm-sparc64/*
      git mv include/asm-sparc/* $ASM
      sed -ie 's/asm-sparc64/asm/g' $ASM/*
      sed -ie 's/asm-sparc/asm/g' $ASM/*
      The rest was an update of the top-level Makefile to use sparc
      for header files when sparc64 is being build.
      And a small fixlet to pick up the correct unistd.h from
      sparc64 code.

      sparc: join the remaining header files · f5e706ad
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      With this commit all sparc64 header files are moved to asm-sparc.
      The remaining files (71 files) were too different to be trivially
      merged so divide them up in a _32.h and a _64.h file which
      are both included from the file with no bit size.
      The following script were used:
      cd include
      FILES=`wc -l asm-sparc64/*h | grep -v '^     1' | cut -b 20-`
      for FILE in ${FILES}; do
        echo $FILE:
        BASE=`echo $FILE | cut -d '.' -f 1`
        GUARD=___ASM_SPARC_`echo $BASE | tr '-' '_' | tr [:lower:] [:upper:]`_H
        git mv asm-sparc/$FILE asm-sparc/$FN32
        git mv asm-sparc64/$FILE asm-sparc/$FN64
        echo git mv done
        printf "#ifndef %s\n" $GUARD                             >   asm-sparc/$FILE
        printf "#define %s\n" $GUARD                             >>  asm-sparc/$FILE
        printf "#if defined(__sparc__) && defined(__arch64__)\n" >>  asm-sparc/$FILE
        printf "#include <asm-sparc/%s>\n" $FN64                 >>  asm-sparc/$FILE
        printf "#else\n"                                         >>  asm-sparc/$FILE
        printf "#include <asm-sparc/%s>\n" $FN32                 >>  asm-sparc/$FILE
        printf "#endif\n"                                        >>  asm-sparc/$FILE
        printf "#endif\n"                                        >>  asm-sparc/$FILE
        git add asm-sparc/$FILE
        echo new file done
        printf "#include <asm-sparc/%s>\n" $FILE                 >  asm-sparc64/$FILE
        git add asm-sparc64/$FILE
        echo sparc64 file done
      The guard contains three '_' to avoid conflict with existing guards.
      In additing the two Kbuild files are emptied to avoid breaking
      headers_* targets.
      We will reintroduce the exported header files when the necessary
      kbuild changes are merged.

      [SPARC]: Fix robust futex syscalls and wire up migrate_pages. · 59359ff8
      David S. Miller authored
      When I added the entries for the robust futex syscall entries, I
      forgot to bump NR_SYSCALLS.  The current situation is error-prone
      because NR_SYSCALLS lives in entry.S where the system call limit
      checks are enforced.  Move the definition to asm/unistd.h in order to
      make this mistake much more difficult to make.
      And wire up sys_migrate_pages since the powerpc folks implemented the
      compat wrapper for us.
