2007-05-02[PATCH] i386: Don't delete cpu_devs data to identify different x86 types in late_initcallThomas Renninger7-78/+0
In arch/i386/cpu/common.c there is: cpu_devs[X86_VENDOR_INTEL] cpu_devs[X86_VENDOR_CYRIX] cpu_devs[X86_VENDOR_AMD] ... They are all filled with data early. The data (struct) got set to NULL for all, but Intel in different late_initcall (exit_cpu_vendor) calls. I don't see what sense this makes at all, maybe something that got forgotten with the HOTPLUG_CPU extenstions? Please check/review whether initdata, cpuinitdata is still ok and this still works with HOTPLUG_CPU and without, it should...

2007-05-02[PATCH] i386: Some additional chipset register values validation.Olivier Galibert1-8/+17
On i945, a mmconfig range hitting the f0000000-ffffffff zone conflicts with the APIC registers and others. Consider it invalid. On E7520, values 0000 and f000 for the window register are defined invalid in the documentation. I haven't seen a bios use these values, but who trusts biosen these days?

2007-05-02[PATCH] i386: Add missing !X86_PAE dependincy to the 2G/2G split.Bill Irwin1-1/+5
Only 1GB-aligned kernel/user splits are now handled for PAE. The 2GB/2GB split attempts to avoid aliasing vmallocspace with the 1:1 mapping for physical memory by using an actual split of 1.875/2.125 to accommodate 128MB of vmallocspace out of what would otherwise be a full 2GB for userspace. That attempt disturbs the alignment required by PAE for 2GB/2GB splits, and furthermore does not provide a 2GB/2GB split as advertised. This patch resolves the issues here in two manners. The first is by providing a true 2GB/2GB split in addition to the 1.875/2.125 split. The second is by renaming the 1.875/2.125 split to CONFIG_VMSPLIT_2G_OPT analogously to CONFIG_VMSPLIT_3G_OPT, which performs a similar manuever to avoid aliasing vmallocspace with the 1:1 mapping for physical memory around the 3GB boundary. With the 1.875/2.125 split properly-named, its config option is then tagged as depending on !HIGHMEM to express the PAE implementation's current inability to deal with such unaligned splits. This patch is essentially a combination of two patches, one written by Eric Biederman and the other by Eric Dumazet. If they could add their Signed-off-by: to this, I'd be much obliged.

2007-05-02[PATCH] x86-64: Dynamically adjust machine check intervalTim Hockin2-9/+30
Background: We've found that MCEs (specifically DRAM SBEs) tend to come in bunches, especially when we are trying really hard to stress the system out. The current MCE poller uses a static interval which does not care whether it has or has not found MCEs recently. Description: This patch makes the MCE poller adjust the polling interval dynamically. If we find an MCE, poll 2x faster (down to 10 ms). When we stop finding MCEs, poll 2x slower (up to check_interval seconds). The check_interval tunable becomes the max polling interval. The "Machine check events logged" printk() is rate limited to the check_interval, which should be identical behavior to the old functionality. Result: If you start to take a lot of correctable errors (not exceptions), you log them faster and more accurately (less chance of overflowing the MCA registers). If you don't take a lot of errors, you will see no change. Alternatives: I considered simply reducing the polling interval to 10 ms immediately and keeping it there as long as we continue to find errors. This felt a bit heavy handed, but does perform significantly better for the default check_interval of 5 minutes (we're using a few seconds when testing for DRAM errors). I could be convinced to go with this, if anyone felt it was not too aggressive. Testing: I used an error-injecting DIMM to create lots of correctable DRAM errors and verified that the polling interval accelerates. The printk() only happens once per check_interval seconds.

2007-05-02[PATCH] i386: pte xchg optimizationZachary Amsden2-0/+28
In situations where page table updates need only be made locally, and there is no cross-processor A/D bit races involved, we need not use the heavyweight xchg instruction to atomically fetch and clear page table entries. Instead, we can just read and clear them directly. This introduces a neat optimization for non-SMP kernels; drop the atomic xchg operations from page table updates. Thanks to Michel Lespinasse for noting this potential optimization.

2007-05-02[PATCH] i386: pte clear optimizationZachary Amsden2-1/+6
When exiting from an address space, no special hypervisor notification of page table updates needs to occur; direct page table hypervisors, such as Xen, switch to another address space first (init_mm) and unprotects the page tables to avoid the cost of trapping to the hypervisor for each pte_clear. Shadow mode hypervisors, such as VMI and lhype don't need to do the extra work of calling through paravirt-ops, and can just directly clear the page table entries without notifiying the hypervisor, since all the page tables are about to be freed. So introduce native_pte_clear functions which bypass any paravirt-ops notification. This results in a significant performance win for VMI and removes some indirect calls from zap_pte_range. Note the 3-level paging already had a native_pte_clear function, thus demanding argument conformance and extra args for the 2-level definition.
