      Extcon (external connector): import Android's switch class and modify. · de55d871
      MyungJoo Ham authored
      External connector class (extcon) is based on and an extension of
      Android kernel's switch class located at linux/drivers/switch/.
      
      This patch provides the before-extension switch class moved to the
      location where the extcon will be located (linux/drivers/extcon/) and
      updates to handle class properly.
      
      The before-extension class, switch class of Android kernel, commits
      imported are:
      
      switch: switch class and GPIO drivers. (splitted)
      Author: Mike Lockwood <lockwood@android.com>
      
      switch: Use device_create instead of device_create_drvdata.
      Author: Arve Hjønnevåg <arve@android.com>
      
      In this patch, upon the commits of Android kernel, we have added:
      - Relocated and renamed for extcon.
      - Comments, module name, and author information are updated
      - Code clean for successing patches
      - Bugfix: enabling write access without write functions
      - Class/device/sysfs create/remove handling
      - Added comments about uevents
      - Format changes for extcon_dev_register() to have a parent dev.

      tcm_fc: Add abort flag for gracefully handling exchange timeout · e1c40382
      Mark Rustad authored
      Add abort flag and use it to terminate processing when an exchange
      is timed out or is reset. The abort flag is used in place of the
      transport_generic_free_cmd function call in the reset and timeout
      cases, because calling that function in that context would free
      memory that was in use. The aborted flag allows the lifetime to
      be managed in a more normal way, while truncating the processing.
      
      This change eliminates a source of memory corruption which
      manifested in a variety of ugly ways.

      Make the "word-at-a-time" helper functions more commonly usable · f68e556e
      Linus Torvalds authored
      I have a new optimized x86 "strncpy_from_user()" that will use these
      same helper functions for all the same reasons the name lookup code uses
      them.  This is preparation for that.
      
      This moves them into an architecture-specific header file.  It's
      architecture-specific for two reasons:
      
       - some of the functions are likely to want architecture-specific
         implementations.  Even if the current code happens to be "generic" in
         the sense that it should work on any little-endian machine, it's
         likely that the "multiply by a big constant and shift" implementation
         is less than optimal for an architecture that has a guaranteed fast
         bit count instruction, for example.
      
       - I expect that if architectures like sparc want to start playing
         around with this, we'll need to abstract out a few more details (in
         particular the actual unaligned accesses).  So we're likely to have
         more architecture-specific stuff if non-x86 architectures start using
         this.
      
         (and if it turns out that non-x86 architectures don't start using
         this, then having it in an architecture-specific header is still the
         right thing to do, of course)

      10) /proc/net/dev regressed because it uses a private offset to track
          where we are in the hash table, but this doesn't track the offset
          pullback that the seq_file code does resulting in some entries being
          missed in large dumps.
      
          Fix from Eric Dumazet.
      
      11) do_tcp_sendpage() unloads the send queue way too fast, because it
          invokes tcp_push() when it shouldn't.  Let the natural sequence
          generated by the splice paths, and the assosciated MSG_MORE
          settings, guide the tcp_push() calls.
      
          Otherwise what goes out of TCP is spaghetti and doesn't batch
          effectively into GSO/TSO clusters.
      
          From Eric Dumazet.
      
      12) Once we put a SKB into either the netlink receiver's queue or a
          socket error queue, it can be consumed and freed up, therefore we
          cannot touch it after queueing it like that.
      
          Fixes from Eric Dumazet.
      
      13) PPP has this annoying behavior in that for every transmit call it
          immediately stops the TX queue, then calls down into the next layer
          to transmit the PPP frame.
      
          But if that next layer can take it immediately, it just un-stops the
          TX queue right before returning from the transmit method.
      
          Besides being useless work, it makes several facilities unusable, in
          particular things like the equalizers.  Well behaved devices should
          only stop the TX queue when they really are full, and in PPP's case
          when it gets backlogged to the downstream device.
      
          David Woodhouse therefore fixed PPP to not stop the TX queue until
          it's downstream can't take data any more.

      Jan Beulich authored
      The original XenoLinux code has always had things this way, and for
      compatibility reasons (in particular with a subsequent pciback
      adjustment) upstream Linux should behave the same way (allowing for two

      xen/pciback: fix XEN_PCI_OP_enable_msix result · 0ee46eca
      Jan Beulich authored
      Prior to 2.6.19 and as of 2.6.31, pci_enable_msix() can return a
      positive value to indicate the number of vectors (less than the amount
      requested) that can be set up for a given device. Returning this as an
      operation value (secondary result) is fine, but (primary) operation
      results are expected to be negative (error) or zero (success) according
      to the protocol. With the frontend fixed to match the XenoLinux
      behavior, the backend can now validly return zero (success) here,
      passing the upper limit on the number of vectors in op->value.

      The above mentioned patch checks the IOAPIC and if it contains
      -1, then it unmaps said IOAPIC. But under Xen we get this:

      The reason we are dying is b/c the call acpi_get_override_irq() is used,
      which returns the polarity and trigger for the IRQs. That function calls
      mp_find_ioapics to get the 'struct ioapic' structure - which along with the
      mp_irq[x] is used to figure out the default values and the polarity/trigger
      overrides. Since the mp_find_ioapics now returns -1 [b/c the IOAPIC is filled
      with 0xffffffff], the acpi_get_override_irq() stops trying to lookup in the
      mp_irq[x] the proper INT_SRV_OVR and we can't install the SCI interrupt.
      
      The proper fix for this is going in v3.5 and adds an x86_io_apic_ops
      struct so that platforms can override it. But for v3.4 lets carry this
      work-around. This patch does that by providing a slightly different variant
      of the fake IOAPIC entries.

      As soon as an skb is queued into socket error queue, another thread
      can consume it, so we are not allowed to reference skb anymore, or risk
      use after free.
