2006-04-28[PATCH] suspend: Documentation update for IBM Thinkpad X30Antonino A. Daplas1-1/+1
As reported in Bugzilla Bug 6406, resume from S3 results in a blank screen. For the IBM Thinkpad X30 using vesafb as the console driver, successful resume from S3 requires option acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode. Update documentation. I would presume that, in any hardware, using vesafb as the console driver will require as a minimum s3_mode.

2006-04-20[PATCH] update OBSOLETE_OSS_DRIVER schedule and dependenciesAdrian Bunk1-2/+3
Update the schedule for the removal of drivers depending on OBSOLETE_OSS_DRIVER as follows: - adjust OBSOLETE_OSS_DRIVER dependencie - from the release of 2.6.16 till the release of 2.6.17: approx. two months for users to report problems with the ALSA drivers for the same hardware - after the release of 2.6.17 (and before 2.6.18): remove the subset of drivers marked at OBSOLETE_OSS_DRIVER without known regressions in the ALSA drivers for the same hardware Additionally, correct some OBSOLETE_OSS_DRIVER dependencies.

2006-04-14[PATCH] dma doc updatesDavid Brownell2-18/+53
This updates the DMA API documentation to address a few issues: - The dma_map_sg() call results are used like pci_map_sg() results: using sg_dma_address() and sg_dma_len(). That's not wholly obvious to folk reading _only_ the "new" DMA-API.txt writeup. - Buffers allocated by dma_alloc_coherent() may not be completely free of coherency concerns ... some CPUs also have write buffers that may need to be flushed. - Cacheline coherence issues are now mentioned as being among issues which affect dma buffers, and complicate/prevent using of static and (especially) stack based buffers with the DMA calls. I don't think many drivers currently need to worry about flushing write buffers, but I did hit it with one SOC using external SDRAM for DMA descriptors: without explicit writebuffer flushing, the on-chip DMA controller accessed descriptors before the CPU completed the writes.

2006-04-11[PATCH] Fix memory barrier docs wrt atomic opsDavid Howells1-19/+33
Fix the memory barrier documentation to attempt to describe atomic ops correctly. atomic_t ops that return a value _do_ imply smp_mb() either side, and so don't actually require smp_mb__*_atomic_*() special barriers. Also explains why special barriers exist in addition to normal barriers. Further fix the memory barrier documents to portray bitwise operation memory barrier effects correctly following Nick Piggin's comments. It makes the point that any atomic op that both modifies some state in memory and returns information on that state implies memory barriers on both sides.

2006-04-09[PATCH] x86_64: Reserve SRAT hotadd memory on x86-64Andi Kleen1-0/+5
From: Keith Mannthey, Andi Kleen Implement memory hotadd without sparsemem. The memory in the SRAT hotadd area is just preserved instead and can be activated later. There are a few restrictions: - Only one continuous hotadd area allowed per node The main problem is dealing with the many buggy SRAT tables that are out there. The strategy here is to reject anything suspicious. Originally from Keith Mannthey, with several hacks and changes by AK and also contributions from Andrew Morton [ TBD: Problems pointed out by KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com>: 1) Goto's rebuild_zonelist patch will not work if CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG=n. Rebuilding zonelist is necessary when the system has just memory < 4G at boot, and hot add memory > 4G. because x86_64 has DMA32, ZONE_NORAML is not included into zonelist at boot time if system doesn't have memory >4G at boot. [AK: should just force the higher zones at boot time when SRAT tells us] 2) zone and node's spanned_pages and present_pages are not incremented. They should be. For example, our server (ia64/Fujitsu PrimeQuest) can equip memory from 4G to 1T(maybe 2T in future), and SRAT will *always* say we have possible 1T +memory. (Microsoft requires "write all possible memory in SRAT") When we reserve memmap for possible 1T memory, Linux will not work well in +minimum 4G configuraion ;) [AK: needs limiting to 5-10% of max memory] ] Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-03-31[PATCH] Document Linux's memory barriers [try #7]David Howells1-0/+1913
The attached patch documents the Linux kernel's memory barriers. I've updated it from the comments I've been given. The per-arch notes sections are gone because it's clear that there are so many exceptions, that it's not worth having them. I've added a list of references to other documents. I've tried to get rid of the concept of memory accesses appearing on the bus; what matters is apparent behaviour with respect to other observers in the system. Interrupts barrier effects are now considered to be non-existent. They may be there, but you may not rely on them. I've added a couple of definition sections at the top of the document: one to specify the minimum execution model that may be assumed, the other to specify what this document refers to by the term "memory". I've made greater mention of the use of mmiowb(). I've adjusted the way in which caches are described, and described the fun that can be had with cache coherence maintenance being unordered and data dependency not being necessarily implicit. I've described (smp_)read_barrier_depends(). I've rearranged the order of the sections, so that memory barriers are discussed in abstract first, and then described the memory barrier facilities available on Linux, before going on to more real-world discussions and examples. I've added information about the lack of memory barriering effects with atomic ops and bitops. I've added information about control dependencies. I've added more diagrams to illustrate caching interactions between CPUs. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
