      powerpc: Clean up lppaca->cede_latency_hint · cf8a056a
      Anton Blanchard authored
      
      
      We have a union containing fields from the old iseries hypervisor
      that has been reused for the cede latency hint. Since we no
      longer support iseries, remove the union completely.

      powerpc: Better scheduling of CR save code in system call path · fd6c40f3
      Anton Blanchard authored
      At the moment system call entry looks like:
      
      crclr	so
      ...
      mfcr	r9
      ...
      std	r9,_CCR(r1)
      
      commit bd19c899
      
       ([POWERPC] system call micro optimisation) put
      some space between the crclr and mfcr in order to avoid a stall.
      
      There is still a stall seen between the mfcr and std. We can avoid
      the crclr by doing it in a GPR with rlwinm which gives us more room
      to better schedule the sequence.

      The XER is a volatile register so there is no need to save and restore
      it over a system call - zero it out in the exception stack frame
      instead.
      
      This should fix a 5 cycle stall of the mfxer/std seen on POWER7.

      autofs: make the autofsv5 packet file descriptor use a packetized pipe · 64f371bc
      Linus Torvalds authored
      The autofs packet size has had a very unfortunate size problem on x86:
      because the alignment of 'u64' differs in 32-bit and 64-bit modes, and
      because the packet data was not 8-byte aligned, the size of the autofsv5
      packet structure differed between 32-bit and 64-bit modes despite
      looking otherwise identical (300 vs 304 bytes respectively).
      
      We first fixed that up by making the 64-bit compat mode know about this
      problem in commit a32744d4 ("autofs: work around unhappy compat
      problem on x86-64"), and that made a 32-bit 'systemd' work happily on a
      64-bit kernel because everything then worked the same way as on a 32-bit
      kernel.
      
      But it turned out that 'automount' had actually known and worked around
      this problem in user space, so fixing the kernel to do the proper 32-bit
      compatibility handling actually *broke* 32-bit automount on a 64-bit
      kernel, because it knew that the packet sizes were wrong and expected
      those incorrect sizes.
      
      As a result, we ended up reverting that compatibility mode fix, and
      thus breaking systemd again, in commit fcbf94b9
      
      .
      
      With both automount and systemd doing a single read() system call, and
      verifying that they get *exactly* the size they expect but using
      different sizes, it seemed that fixing one of them inevitably seemed to
      break the other.  At one point, a patch I seriously considered applying
      from Michael Tokarev did a "strcmp()" to see if it was automount that
      was doing the operation.  Ugly, ugly.
      
      However, a prettier solution exists now thanks to the packetized pipe
      mode.  By marking the communication pipe as being packetized (by simply
      setting the O_DIRECT flag), we can always just write the bigger packet
      size, and if user-space does a smaller read, it will just get that
      partial end result and the extra alignment padding will simply be thrown
      away.
      
      This makes both automount and systemd happy, since they now get the size
      they asked for, and the kernel side of autofs simply no longer needs to
      care - it could pad out the packet arbitrarily.
      
      Of course, if there is some *other* user of autofs (please, please,
      please tell me it ain't so - and we haven't heard of any) that tries to
      read the packets with multiple writes, that other user will now be
      broken - the whole point of the packetized mode is that one system call
      gets exactly one packet, and you cannot read a packet in pieces.

      pipes: add a "packetized pipe" mode for writing · 9883035a
      Linus Torvalds authored
      
      
      The actual internal pipe implementation is already really about
      individual packets (called "pipe buffers"), and this simply exposes that
      as a special packetized mode.
      
      When we are in the packetized mode (marked by O_DIRECT as suggested by
      Alan Cox), a write() on a pipe will not merge the new data with previous
      writes, so each write will get a pipe buffer of its own.  The pipe
      buffer is then marked with the PIPE_BUF_FLAG_PACKET flag, which in turn
      will tell the reader side to break the read at that boundary (and throw
      away any partial packet contents that do not fit in the read buffer).
      
      End result: as long as you do writes less than PIPE_BUF in size (so that
      the pipe doesn't have to split them up), you can now treat the pipe as a
      packet interface, where each read() system call will read one packet at
      a time.  You can just use a sufficiently big read buffer (PIPE_BUF is
      sufficient, since bigger than that doesn't guarantee atomicity anyway),
      and the return value of the read() will naturally give you the size of
      the packet.
      
      NOTE! We do not support zero-sized packets, and zero-sized reads and
      writes to a pipe continue to be no-ops.  Also note that big packets will
      currently be split at write time, but that the size at which that
      happens is not really specified (except that it's bigger than PIPE_BUF).
      Currently that limit is the system page size, but we might want to
      explicitly support bigger packets some day.
      
      The main user for this is going to be the autofs packet interface,
      allowing us to stop having to care so deeply about exact packet sizes
      (which have had bugs with 32/64-bit compatibility modes).  But user
      space can create packetized pipes with "pipe2(fd, O_DIRECT)", which will
      fail with an EINVAL on kernels that do not support this interface.

      Revert "autofs: work around unhappy compat problem on x86-64" · fcbf94b9
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This reverts commit a32744d4
      
      .
      
      While that commit was technically the right thing to do, and made the
      x86-64 compat mode work identically to native 32-bit mode (and thus
      fixing the problem with a 32-bit systemd install on a 64-bit kernel), it
      turns out that the automount binaries had workarounds for this compat
      problem.
      
      Now, the workarounds are disgusting: doing an "uname()" to find out the
      architecture of the kernel, and then comparing it for the 64-bit cases
      and fixing up the size of the read() in automount for those.  And they
      were confused: it's not actually a generic 64-bit issue at all, it's
      very much tied to just x86-64, which has different alignment for an
      'u64' in 64-bit mode than in 32-bit mode.
      
      But the end result is that fixing the compat layer actually breaks the
      case of a 32-bit automount on a x86-64 kernel.
      
      There are various approaches to fix this (including just doing a
      "strcmp()" on current->comm and comparing it to "automount"), but I
      think that I will do the one that teaches pipes about a special "packet
      mode", which will allow user space to not have to care too deeply about
      the padding at the end of the autofs packet.
      
      That change will make the compat workaround unnecessary, so let's revert
      it first, and get automount working again in compat mode.  The
      packetized pipes will then fix autofs for systemd.

      drm/i915: Set the Stencil Cache eviction policy to non-LRA mode. · 3a69ddd6
      Kenneth Graunke authored
      Clearing bit 5 of CACHE_MODE_0 is necessary to prevent GPU hangs in
      OpenGL programs such as Google MapsGL, Google Earth, and gzdoom when
      using separate stencil buffers.  Without it, the GPU tries to use the
      LRA eviction policy, which isn't supported.  This was supposed to be off
      by default, but seems to be on for many machines.
      
      This cannot be done in gen6_init_clock_gating with most of the other
      workaround bits; the render ring needs to exist.  Otherwise, the
      register write gets dropped on the floor (one printk will show it
      changed, but a second printk immediately following shows the value
      reverts to the old one).
