      sort out blockdev_direct_IO variants · eafdc7d1
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Move the call to vmtruncate to get rid of accessive blocks to the callers
      in prepearation of the new truncate calling sequence.  This was only done
      for DIO_LOCKING filesystems, so the __blockdev_direct_IO_newtrunc variant
      was not needed anyway.  Get rid of blockdev_direct_IO_no_locking and
      its _newtrunc variant while at it as just opencoding the two additional
      paramters is shorted than the name suffix.

      [PATCH] move executable checking into ->permission() · f696a365
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      For execute permission on a regular files we need to check if file has
      any execute bits at all, regardless of capabilites.
      This check is normally performed by generic_permission() but was also
      added to the case when the filesystem defines its own ->permission()
      method.  In the latter case the filesystem should be responsible for
      performing this check.
      Move the check from inode_permission() inside filesystems which are
      not calling generic_permission().
      Create a helper function execute_ok() that returns true if the inode
      is a directory or if any execute bits are present in i_mode.
      Also fix up the following code:
       - coda control file is never executable
       - sysctl files are never executable
       - hfs_permission seems broken on MAY_EXEC, remove
       - hfsplus_permission is eqivalent to generic_permission(), remove

      make it atomic_long_t; while we are at it, get rid of useless checks in affs,
      hfs and hpfs - ->open() always has it equal to 1, ->release() - to 0.

      [PATCH] sanitize ->permission() prototype · e6305c43
      Al Viro authored
      * kill nameidata * argument; map the 3 bits in ->flags anybody cares
        about to new MAY_... ones and pass with the mask.
      * kill redundant gfs2_iop_permission()
      * sanitize ecryptfs_permission()
      * fix remaining places where ->permission() instances might barf on new
        MAY_... found in mask.
      The obvious next target in that direction is permission(9)

      Detach sched.h from mm.h · e8edc6e0
      Alexey Dobriyan authored
      First thing mm.h does is including sched.h solely for can_do_mlock() inline
      function which has "current" dereference inside. By dealing with can_do_mlock()
      mm.h can be detached from sched.h which is good. See below, why.
      This patch
      a) removes unconditional inclusion of sched.h from mm.h
      b) makes can_do_mlock() normal function in mm/mlock.c
      c) exports can_do_mlock() to not break compilation
      d) adds sched.h inclusions back to files that were getting it indirectly.
      e) adds less bloated headers to some files (asm/signal.h, jiffies.h) that were
         getting them indirectly
      Net result is:
      a) mm.h users would get less code to open, read, preprocess, parse, ... if
         they don't need sched.h
      b) sched.h stops being dependency for significant number of files:
         on x86_64 allmodconfig touching sched.h results in recompile of 4083 files,
         after patch it's only 3744 (-8.3%).
      Cross-compile tested on
      	all arm defconfigs, all mips defconfigs, all powerpc defconfigs,
      	alpha alpha-up
      	i386 i386-up i386-defconfig i386-allnoconfig
      	ia64 ia64-up
      	parisc parisc-up
      	powerpc powerpc-up
      	s390 s390-up
      	sparc sparc-up
      	sparc64 sparc64-up
      	x86_64 x86_64-up x86_64-defconfig x86_64-allnoconfig
      as well as my two usual configs.

      [PATCH] changing CONFIG_LOCALVERSION rebuilds too much, for no good reason · 733482e4
      Olaf Hering authored
      This patch removes almost all inclusions of linux/version.h.  The 3
      #defines are unused in most of the touched files.
      A few drivers use the simple KERNEL_VERSION(a,b,c) macro, which is
      unfortunatly in linux/version.h.
      There are also lots of #ifdef for long obsolete kernels, this was not
      touched.  In a few places, the linux/version.h include was move to where
      the LINUX_VERSION_CODE was used.
      quilt vi `find * -type f -name "*.[ch]"|xargs grep -El '(UTS_RELEASE|LINUX_VERSION_CODE|KERNEL_VERSION|linux/version.h)'|grep -Ev '(/(boot|coda|drm)/|~$)'`

      [PATCH] gfp_t: fs/* · 27496a8c
      Al Viro authored
       - ->releasepage() annotated (s/int/gfp_t), instances updated
       - missing gfp_t in fs/* added
       - fixed misannotation from the original sweep caught by bitwise checks:
         XFS used __nocast both for gfp_t and for flags used by XFS allocator.
         The latter left with unsigned int __nocast; we might want to add a
         different type for those but for now let's leave them alone.  That,
         BTW, is a case when __nocast use had been actively confusing - it had
         been used in the same code for two different and similar types, with
         no way to catch misuses.  Switch of gfp_t to bitwise had caught that
      One tricky bit is left alone to be dealt with later - mapping->flags is
      a mix of gfp_t and error indications.  Left alone for now.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
