      Revert "module: drop the lock while waiting for module to complete initialization." · 218ce735
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This reverts commit 480b02df
      
      , since
      Rafael reports that it causes occasional kernel paging request faults in
      load_module().
      
      Dropping the module lock and re-taking it deep in the call-chain is
      definitely not the right thing to do.  That just turns the mutex from a
      lock into a "random non-locking data structure" that doesn't actually
      protect what it's supposed to protect.

      Stephen Rothwell reports the following new warning:
      
      drivers/net/usb/asix.c: In function 'asix_rx_fixup':

      drivers/net/usb/asix.c:354: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size
      
      The code just cares about the low alignment bits, so use
      an "unsigned long" cast instead of one to "u32".

      Sarveshwar Bandi authored
      
      
      Certain firmware commands/operations to upgrade firmware could take several
      seconds to complete. The code presently disables bottom half during these
      operations which could lead to unpredictable behaviour in certain cases. This
      patch now does all firmware upgrade operations asynchronously using a
      completion variable.

      proc_dointvec: write a single value · 563b0467
      J. R. Okajima authored
      The commit 00b7c339
      
      
      "sysctl: refactor integer handling proc code"
      modified the behaviour of writing to /proc.
      Before the commit, write("1\n") to /proc/sys/kernel/printk succeeded. But
      now it returns EINVAL.
      
      This commit supports writing a single value to a multi-valued entry.

      Search only the first 100 bits instead of 140, saving a couple
      instructions. The resulting code is about 1/3 faster (40K ticks/1000
      iterations down to 30K ticks/1000 iterations).

      Convert alpha to use clocksources instead of arch_gettimeoffset · 9ce34c8f
      John Stultz authored
      
      
      Alpha has a tsc like rpcc counter that it uses to manage time.
      This can be converted to an actual clocksource instead of utilizing
      the arch_gettimeoffset method that is really only there for legacy
      systems with no continuous counter.
      
      Further cleanups could be made if alpha converted to the clockevent
      model.

      driver core: add devname module aliases to allow module on-demand auto-loading · 578454ff
      Kay Sievers authored
      This adds:
        alias: devname:<name>
      to some common kernel modules, which will allow the on-demand loading
      of the kernel module when the device node is accessed.
      
      Ideally all these modules would be compiled-in, but distros seems too
      much in love with their modularization that we need to cover the common
      cases with this new facility. It will allow us to remove a bunch of pretty
      useless init scripts and modprobes from init scripts.
      
      The static device node aliases will be carried in the module itself. The
      program depmod will extract this information to a file in the module directory:
        $ cat /lib/modules/2.6.34-00650-g537b60d1
      
      -dirty/modules.devname
        # Device nodes to trigger on-demand module loading.
        microcode cpu/microcode c10:184
        fuse fuse c10:229
        ppp_generic ppp c108:0
        tun net/tun c10:200
        dm_mod mapper/control c10:235
      
      Udev will pick up the depmod created file on startup and create all the
      static device nodes which the kernel modules specify, so that these modules
      get automatically loaded when the device node is accessed:
        $ /sbin/udevd --debug
        ...
        static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/cpu/microcode' c10:184
        static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/fuse' c10:229
        static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/ppp' c108:0
        static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/net/tun' c10:200
        static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/mapper/control' c10:235
        udev_rules_apply_static_dev_perms: chmod '/dev/net/tun' 0666
        udev_rules_apply_static_dev_perms: chmod '/dev/fuse' 0666
      
      A few device nodes are switched to statically allocated numbers, to allow
      the static nodes to work. This might also useful for systems which still run
      a plain static /dev, which is completely unsafe to use with any dynamic minor
      numbers.
      
      Note:
      The devname aliases must be limited to the *common* and *single*instance*
      device nodes, like the misc devices, and never be used for conceptually limited
      systems like the loop devices, which should rather get fixed properly and get a
      control node for losetup to talk to, instead of creating a random number of
      device nodes in advance, regardless if they are ever used.
      
      This facility is to hide the mess distros are creating with too modualized
      kernels, and just to hide that these modules are not compiled-in, and not to
      paper-over broken concepts. Thanks! :)
