      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      
        http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py
      
      The script does the followings.
      
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
        file.
      
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
         files.
      
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
         necessary.
      
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
      
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      libata: rename SFF functions · 9363c382
      Tejun Heo authored
      SFF functions have confusing names.  Some have sff prefix, some have
      bmdma, some std, some pci and some none.  Unify the naming by...
      
      * SFF functions which are common to both BMDMA and non-BMDMA are
        prefixed with ata_sff_.
      
      * SFF functions which are specific to BMDMA are prefixed with
        ata_bmdma_.
      
      * SFF functions which are specific to PCI but apply to both BMDMA and
        non-BMDMA are prefixed with ata_pci_sff_.
      
      * SFF functions which are specific to PCI and BMDMA are prefixed with
        ata_pci_bmdma_.
      
      * Drop generic prefixes from LLD specific routines.  For example,
        bfin_std_dev_select -> bfin_dev_select.
      
      The following renames are noteworthy.
      
        ata_qc_issue_prot() -> ata_sff_qc_issue()
        ata_pci_default_filter() -> ata_bmdma_mode_filter()
        ata_dev_try_classify() -> ata_sff_dev_classify()
      
      This rename is in preparation of separating SFF support out of libata
      core layer.  This patch strictly renames functions and doesn't
      introduce any behavior difference.

      libata: implement and use ops inheritance · 029cfd6b
      Tejun Heo authored
      libata lets low level drivers build ata_port_operations table and
      register it with libata core layer.  This allows low level drivers
      high level of flexibility but also burdens them with lots of
      boilerplate entries.
      
      This becomes worse for drivers which support related similar
      controllers which differ slightly.  They share most of the operations
      except for a few.  However, the driver still needs to list all
      operations for each variant.  This results in large number of
      duplicate entries, which is not only inefficient but also error-prone
      as it becomes very difficult to tell what the actual differences are.
      
      This duplicate boilerplates all over the low level drivers also make
      updating the core layer exteremely difficult and error-prone.  When
      compounded with multi-branched development model, it ends up
      accumulating inconsistencies over time.  Some of those inconsistencies
      cause immediate problems and fixed.  Others just remain there dormant
      making maintenance increasingly difficult.
      
      To rectify the problem, this patch implements ata_port_operations
      inheritance.  To allow LLDs to easily re-use their own ops tables
      overriding only specific methods, this patch implements poor man's
      class inheritance.  An ops table has ->inherits field which can be set
      to any ops table as long as it doesn't create a loop.  When the host
      is started, the inheritance chain is followed and any operation which
      isn't specified is taken from the nearest ancestor which has it
      specified.  This operation is called finalization and done only once
      per an ops table and the LLD doesn't have to do anything special about
      it other than making the ops table non-const such that libata can
      update it.
      
      libata provides four base ops tables lower drivers can inherit from -
      base, sata, pmp, sff and bmdma.  To avoid overriding these ops
      accidentaly, these ops are declared const and LLDs should always
      inherit these instead of using them directly.
      
      After finalization, all the ops table are identical before and after
      the patch except for setting .irq_handler to ata_interrupt in drivers
      which didn't use to.  The .irq_handler doesn't have any actual effect
      and the field will soon be removed by later patch.
      
      * sata_sx4 is still using old style EH and currently doesn't take
        advantage of ops inheritance.

      libata: implement and use SHT initializers · 68d1d07b
      Tejun Heo authored
      libata lets low level drivers build scsi_host_template and register it
      to the SCSI layer.  This allows low level drivers high level of
      flexibility but also burdens them with lots of boilerplate entries.
      
      This patch implements SHT initializers which can be used to initialize
      all the boilerplate entries in a sht.  Three variants of them are
      implemented - BASE, BMDMA and NCQ - for different types of drivers.
      Note that entries can be overriden by putting individual initializers
      after the helper macro.
      
      All sht tables are identical before and after this patch.

      libata: implement and use ata_noop_irq_clear() · 358f9a77
      Tejun Heo authored
      ->irq_clear() is used to clear IRQ bit of a SFF controller and isn't
      useful for drivers which don't use libata SFF HSM implementation.
      However, it's a required callback and many drivers implement their own
      noop version as placeholder.  This patch implements ata_noop_irq_clear
      and use it to replace those custom placeholders.
      
      Also, SFF drivers which don't support BMDMA don't need to use
      ata_bmdma_irq_clear().  It becomes noop if BMDMA address isn't
      initialized.  Convert them to use ata_noop_irq_clear().

      AVR32 PATA driver · 7c9ef8e4
      Kristoffer Nyborg Gregertsen authored
      Updated and simplified driver. Use only register transfer timing for both
      data and register transfers. This gives poorer performance in PIO1 and 2,
      but should not be a problem in PIO3 and 4, correct me if I'm wrong :)
      
      The driver works very we'll but I still wonder about the interrupts. I have
      an interrupt line, that works nicely when POLLING flag is not set. The
      problem is the number of interrupts that eat away my CPU cycles.
      
      When using the POLLING flag there seem to be some interrupts that dosen't get
      cleared. Furthermore the device dosen't drive INTRQ high, it stays at 2.5 volts
      and generates a lot of interrupts due to ripple / noise. What to do?
