2007-10-09IB/umad: Fix bit ordering and 32-on-64 problems on big endian systemsRoland Dreier1-1/+21
The declaration of struct ib_user_mad_reg_req.method_mask[] exported to userspace was an array of __u32, but the kernel internally treated it as a bitmap made up of longs. This makes a difference for 64-bit big-endian kernels, where numbering the bits in an array of__u32 gives: |31.....0|63....31|95....64|127...96| while numbering the bits in an array of longs gives: |63..............0|127............64| 64-bit userspace can handle this by just treating method_mask[] as an array of longs, but 32-bit userspace is really stuck: the meaning of the bits in method_mask[] depends on whether the kernel is 32-bit or 64-bit, and there's no sane way for userspace to know that. Fix this by updating <rdma/ib_user_mad.h> to make it clear that method_mask[] is an array of longs, and using a compat_ioctl method to convert to an array of 64-bit longs to handle the 32-on-64 problem. This fixes the interface description to match existing behavior (so working binaries continue to work) in almost all situations, and gives consistent semantics in the case of 32-bit userspace that can run on either a 32-bit or 64-bit kernel, so that the same binary can work for both 32-on-32 and 32-on-64 systems.

2007-10-09IB/umad: Add P_Key index supportRoland Dreier1-0/+48
Add support for setting the P_Key index of sent MADs and getting the P_Key index of received MADs. This requires a change to the layout of the ABI structure struct ib_user_mad_hdr, so to avoid breaking compatibility, we default to the old (unchanged) ABI and add a new ioctl IB_USER_MAD_ENABLE_PKEY that allows applications that are aware of the new ABI to opt into using it. We plan on switching to the new ABI by default in a year or so, and this patch adds a warning that is printed when an application uses the old ABI, to push people towards converting to the new ABI.

2007-02-04IB: Make sure struct ib_user_mad.data is alignedJason Gunthorpe1-1/+1
Make the untyped data region in ib_user_mad have type u64 so that it gets aligned properly. This avoids alignment faults in ib_umad when casting the data field to an rmpp_mad and accessing the 64-bit tid field on architectures like ia64.

2005-08-26[PATCH] IB: move include files to include/rdmaRoland Dreier1-0/+137
Move the InfiniBand headers from drivers/infiniband/include to include/rdma. This allows InfiniBand-using code to live elsewhere, and lets us remove the ugly EXTRA_CFLAGS include path from the InfiniBand Makefiles. Signed-off-by: Roland Dreier <rolandd@cisco.com>
