      [PATCH] cpuset memory spread: slab cache format · fffb60f9
      Paul Jackson authored
      
      
      Rewrap the overly long source code lines resulting from the previous
      patch's addition of the slab cache flag SLAB_MEM_SPREAD.  This patch
      contains only formatting changes, and no function change.

      [PATCH] cpuset memory spread: slab cache filesystems · 4b6a9316
      Paul Jackson authored
      
      
      Mark file system inode and similar slab caches subject to SLAB_MEM_SPREAD
      memory spreading.
      
      If a slab cache is marked SLAB_MEM_SPREAD, then anytime that a task that's
      in a cpuset with the 'memory_spread_slab' option enabled goes to allocate
      from such a slab cache, the allocations are spread evenly over all the
      memory nodes (task->mems_allowed) allowed to that task, instead of favoring
      allocation on the node local to the current cpu.
      
      The following inode and similar caches are marked SLAB_MEM_SPREAD:
      
          file                               cache

          net/sunrpc/rpc_pipe.c              rpc_inode_cache
      
      The choice of which slab caches to so mark was quite simple.  I marked
      those already marked SLAB_RECLAIM_ACCOUNT, except for fs/xfs, dentry_cache,
      inode_cache, and buffer_head, which were marked in a previous patch.  Even
      though SLAB_RECLAIM_ACCOUNT is for a different purpose, it marks the same
      potentially large file system i/o related slab caches as we need for memory
      spreading.
      
      Given that the rule now becomes "wherever you would have used a
      SLAB_RECLAIM_ACCOUNT slab cache flag before (usually the inode cache), use
      the SLAB_MEM_SPREAD flag too", this should be easy enough to maintain.
      Future file system writers will just copy one of the existing file system
      slab cache setups and tend to get it right without thinking.

      [PATCH] fix possible PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT overflows · 54b21a79
      Andrew Morton authored
      
      
      We've had two instances recently of overflows when doing
      
      	64_bit_value = (32_bit_value << PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT)
      
      I did a tree-wide grep of `<<.*PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT' and this is the result.
      
      - afs_rxfs_fetch_descriptor.offset is of type off_t, which seems broken.
      
      - jfs and jffs are limited to 4GB anyway.
      
      - reiserfs map_block_for_writepage() takes an unsigned long for the block -
        it should take sector_t.  (It'll fail for huge filesystems with
        blocksize<PAGE_CACHE_SIZE)
      
      - cramfs_read() needs to use sector_t (I think cramsfs is busted on large
        filesystems anyway)
      
      - affs is limited in file size anyway.
      
      - I generally didn't fix 32-bit overflows in directory operations.
      
      - arm's __flush_dcache_page() is peculiar.  What if the page lies beyond 4G?
      
      - gss_wrap_req_priv() needs checking (snd_buf->page_base)

      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!
