This patch removes the need of subdir-y. Now all files/directories under arch/<arch>/include/uapi/ are exported. The only change for userland is the layout of the command 'make headers_install_all': directories asm-<arch> are replaced by arch-<arch>/.

2017-05-11uapi: export all headers under uapi directoriesNicolas Dichtel1-25/+41
Regularly, when a new header is created in include/uapi/, the developer forgets to add it in the corresponding Kbuild file. This error is usually detected after the release is out. In fact, all headers under uapi directories should be exported, thus it's useless to have an exhaustive list. After this patch, the following files, which were not exported, are now exported (with make headers_install_all): asm-arc/kvm_para.h asm-arc/ucontext.h asm-blackfin/shmparam.h asm-blackfin/ucontext.h asm-c6x/shmparam.h asm-c6x/ucontext.h asm-cris/kvm_para.h asm-h8300/shmparam.h asm-h8300/ucontext.h asm-hexagon/shmparam.h asm-m32r/kvm_para.h asm-m68k/kvm_para.h asm-m68k/shmparam.h asm-metag/kvm_para.h asm-metag/shmparam.h asm-metag/ucontext.h asm-mips/hwcap.h asm-mips/reg.h asm-mips/ucontext.h asm-nios2/kvm_para.h asm-nios2/ucontext.h asm-openrisc/shmparam.h asm-parisc/kvm_para.h asm-powerpc/perf_regs.h asm-sh/kvm_para.h asm-sh/ucontext.h asm-tile/shmparam.h asm-unicore32/shmparam.h asm-unicore32/ucontext.h asm-x86/hwcap2.h asm-xtensa/kvm_para.h drm/armada_drm.h drm/etnaviv_drm.h drm/vgem_drm.h linux/aspeed-lpc-ctrl.h linux/auto_dev-ioctl.h linux/bcache.h linux/btrfs_tree.h linux/can/vxcan.h linux/cifs/cifs_mount.h linux/coresight-stm.h linux/cryptouser.h linux/fsmap.h linux/genwqe/genwqe_card.h linux/hash_info.h linux/kcm.h linux/kcov.h linux/kfd_ioctl.h linux/lightnvm.h linux/module.h linux/nbd-netlink.h linux/nilfs2_api.h linux/nilfs2_ondisk.h linux/nsfs.h linux/pr.h linux/qrtr.h linux/rpmsg.h linux/sched/types.h linux/sed-opal.h linux/smc.h linux/smc_diag.h linux/stm.h linux/switchtec_ioctl.h linux/vfio_ccw.h linux/wil6210_uapi.h rdma/bnxt_re-abi.h Note that I have removed from this list the files which are generated in every exported directories (like .install or .install.cmd).

2017-05-10block, bfq: stress that low_latency must be off to get max throughputPaolo Valente1-1/+16
The introduction of the BFQ and Kyber I/O schedulers has triggered a new wave of I/O benchmarks. Unfortunately, comments and discussions on these benchmarks confirm that there is still little awareness that it is very hard to achieve, at the same time, a low latency and a high throughput. In particular, virtually all benchmarks measure throughput, or throughput-related figures of merit, but, for BFQ, they use the scheduler in its default configuration. This configuration is geared, instead, toward a low latency. This is evidently a sign that BFQ documentation is still too unclear on this important aspect. This commit addresses this issue by stressing how BFQ configuration must be (easily) changed if the only goal is maximum throughput.

2017-05-09arm64: documentation: document tagged pointer stack constraintsKristina Martsenko1-15/+47
Some kernel features don't currently work if a task puts a non-zero address tag in its stack pointer, frame pointer, or frame record entries (FP, LR). For example, with a tagged stack pointer, the kernel can't deliver signals to the process, and the task is killed instead. As another example, with a tagged frame pointer or frame records, perf fails to generate call graphs or resolve symbols. For now, just document these limitations, instead of finding and fixing everything that doesn't work, as it's not known if anyone needs to use tags in these places anyway. In addition, as requested by Dave Martin, generalize the limitations into a general kernel address tag policy, and refactor tagged-pointers.txt to include it.

2017-05-08fs: semove set but not checked AOP_FLAG_UNINTERRUPTIBLE flagTetsuo Handa1-2/+1
Commit afddba49d18f ("fs: introduce write_begin, write_end, and perform_write aops") introduced AOP_FLAG_UNINTERRUPTIBLE flag which was checked in pagecache_write_begin(), but that check was removed by 4e02ed4b4a2f ("fs: remove prepare_write/commit_write"). Between these two commits, commit d9414774dc0c ("cifs: Convert cifs to new aops.") added a check in cifs_write_begin(), but that check was soon removed by commit a98ee8c1c707 ("[CIFS] fix regression in cifs_write_begin/cifs_write_end"). Therefore, AOP_FLAG_UNINTERRUPTIBLE flag is checked nowhere. Let's remove this flag. This patch has no functionality changes.

2017-05-05thermal: core: Add a back up thermal shutdown mechanismKeerthy1-0/+21
orderly_poweroff is triggered when a graceful shutdown of system is desired. This may be used in many critical states of the kernel such as when subsystems detects conditions such as critical temperature conditions. However, in certain conditions in system boot up sequences like those in the middle of driver probes being initiated, userspace will be unable to power off the system in a clean manner and leaves the system in a critical state. In cases like these, the /sbin/poweroff will return success (having forked off to attempt powering off the system. However, the system overall will fail to completely poweroff (since other modules will be probed) and the system is still functional with no userspace (since that would have shut itself off). However, there is no clean way of detecting such failure of userspace powering off the system. In such scenarios, it is necessary for a backup workqueue to be able to force a shutdown of the system when orderly shutdown is not successful after a configurable time period.

2017-05-02powerpc/8xx: Adding support of IRQ in MPC8xx GPIOChristophe Leroy1-1/+20
This patch allows the use of IRQ to notify the change of GPIO status on MPC8xx CPM IO ports. This then allows to associate IRQs to GPIOs in the Device Tree. Ex: CPM1_PIO_C: gpio-controller@960 { #gpio-cells = <2>; compatible = "fsl,cpm1-pario-bank-c"; reg = <0x960 0x10>; fsl,cpm1-gpio-irq-mask = <0x0fff>; interrupts = <1 2 6 9 10 11 14 15 23 24 26 31>; interrupt-parent = <&CPM_PIC>; gpio-controller; }; The property 'fsl,cpm1-gpio-irq-mask' defines which of the 16 GPIOs have the associated interrupts defined in the 'interrupts' property.

2017-05-01Documentation/target: add an example script to configure an iSCSI targetChristophe Vu-Brugier1-0/+80
The script illustrates how to interact with configfs to create a very simple LIO iSCSI target with a file or block device backstore. The script can serve as a starting point for people that cannot use targetcli because Python is not available on their machine.

2017-05-01dt-bindings: power: supply: add AXP20X/AXP22X battery DT bindingQuentin Schulz1-0/+20
The X-Powers AXP20X and AXP22X PMICs can have a battery as power supply. This patch adds the DT binding documentation for the battery power supply which gets various data from the PMIC, such as the battery status (charging, discharging, full, dead), current max limit, current current, battery capacity (in percentage), voltage max and min limits, current voltage and battery capacity (in Ah).
