2010-10-25mtd: Define MLC Flash as a different flash typeRohit Hassan Sathyanarayan1-0/+1
MLC NAND Flash has a different cell structure and differs in functioning than the SLC NAND Flash. Hence we are considering it as a different Flash type.

2010-10-25mtd: add init_size hook for NAND driverHuang Shijie1-0/+6
Not all the NAND devices have all the information in additional id bytes. So add a hook in the nand_chip{} is a good method to calculate the right value of oobsize, erasesize and so on. Without the hook,you will get the wrong value, and you have to hack in the ->scan_bbt() to change the wrong value which make the code mess.

2010-10-24mtd: nand: add support for reading ONFI parameters from NAND deviceFlorian Fainelli1-0/+68
This patch adds support for reading NAND device ONFI parameters and use the ONFI informations to define its geometry. In case the device supports ONFI, the onfi_version field in struct nand_chip contains the version (BCD) and the onfi_params structure can be used by drivers to set up timings and such. We currently only support ONFI 1.0 parameters.

2010-10-24mtd: edit comments on deprecation of ioctl ECCGETLAYOUTBrian Norris2-7/+12
There were some improvements and additions necessary in the comments explaining of the expansion of nand_ecclayout, the introduction of nand_ecclayout_user, and the deprecation of the ioctl ECCGETLAYOUT. Also, I found a better placement for the macro MTD_MAX_ECCPOS_ENTRIES; next to the definition of MTD_MAX_OOBFREE_ENTRIES in mtd-abi.h. The macro is really only important for the ioctl code (found in drivers/mtd/mtdchar.c) but since there are small edits being made to the user-space header, I figured this is a better location.

2010-10-24mtd: nand: expand nand_ecc_layout, deprecate ioctl ECCGETLAYOUTBrian Norris4-4/+19
struct nand_ecclayout is too small for many new chips; OOB regions can be as large as 448 bytes and may increase more in the future. Thus, copying that struct to user-space with the ECCGETLAYOUT ioctl is not a good idea; the ioctl would have to be updated every time there's a change to the current largest size. Instead, the old nand_ecclayout is renamed to nand_ecclayout_user and a new struct nand_ecclayout is created that can accomodate larger sizes and expand without affecting the user-space. struct nand_ecclayout can still be used in board drivers without modification -- at least for now. A new function is provided to convert from the new to the old in order to allow the deprecated ioctl to continue to work with truncated data. Perhaps the ioctl, the conversion process, and the struct nand_ecclayout_user can be removed altogether in the future. Note: There are comments in nand/davinci_nand.c::nand_davinci_probe() regarding this issue; this driver (and maybe others) can be updated to account for extra space. All kernel drivers can use the expanded nand_ecclayout as a drop-in replacement and ignore its benefits.

2010-09-27tcp: Fix >4GB writes on 64-bit.David S. Miller1-1/+1
Fixes kernel bugzilla #16603 tcp_sendmsg() truncates iov_len to an 'int' which a 4GB write to write zero bytes, for example. There is also the problem higher up of how verify_iovec() works. It wants to prevent the total length from looking like an error return value. However it does this using 'int', but syscalls return 'long' (and thus signed 64-bit on 64-bit machines). So it could trigger false-positives on 64-bit as written. So fix it to use 'long'.

2010-09-26ipv6: add a missing unregister_pernet_subsys callNeil Horman1-0/+1
Clean up a missing exit path in the ipv6 module init routines. In addrconf_init we call ipv6_addr_label_init which calls register_pernet_subsys for the ipv6_addr_label_ops structure. But if module loading fails, or if the ipv6 module is removed, there is no corresponding unregister_pernet_subsys call, which leaves a now-bogus address on the pernet_list, leading to oopses in subsequent registrations. This patch cleans up both the failed load path and the unload path. Tested by myself with good results.

2010-09-23x86/amd-iommu: Work around S3 BIOS bugJoerg Roedel1-0/+3
This patch adds a workaround for an IOMMU BIOS problem to the AMD IOMMU driver. The result of the bug is that the IOMMU does not execute commands anymore when the system comes out of the S3 state resulting in system failure. The bug in the BIOS is that is does not restore certain hardware specific registers correctly. This workaround reads out the contents of these registers at boot time and restores them on resume from S3. The workaround is limited to the specific IOMMU chipset where this problem occurs.

This fixes the regression caused by the commit 6fee48cd330c68 ("dma-mapping: arm: use generic pci_set_dma_mask and pci_set_consistent_dma_mask"). ARM needs to clip the dma coherent mask for dmabounce devices. This restores the old trick. Note that strictly speaking, the DMA API doesn't allow architectures to do such but I'm not sure it's worth adding the new API to set the dma mask that allows architectures to clip it.

2010-09-20xfrm: Allow different selector family in temporary stateThomas Egerer1-2/+2
The family parameter xfrm_state_find is used to find a state matching a certain policy. This value is set to the template's family (encap_family) right before xfrm_state_find is called. The family parameter is however also used to construct a temporary state in xfrm_state_find itself which is wrong for inter-family scenarios because it produces a selector for the wrong family. Since this selector is included in the xfrm_user_acquire structure, user space programs misinterpret IPv6 addresses as IPv4 and vice versa. This patch splits up the original init_tempsel function into a part that initializes the selector respectively the props and id of the temporary state, to allow for differing ip address families whithin the state.

2010-09-15tcp: Prevent overzealous packetization by SWS logic.Alexey Kuznetsov1-2/+16
If peer uses tiny MSS (say, 75 bytes) and similarly tiny advertised window, the SWS logic will packetize to half the MSS unnecessarily. This causes problems with some embedded devices. However for large MSS devices we do want to half-MSS packetize otherwise we never get enough packets into the pipe for things like fast retransmit and recovery to work. Be careful also to handle the case where MSS > window, otherwise we'll never send until the probe timer. Reported-by: ツ Leandro Melo de Sales <leandroal@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2010-09-14compat: Make compat_alloc_user_space() incorporate the access_ok()H. Peter Anvin1-0/+3
compat_alloc_user_space() expects the caller to independently call access_ok() to verify the returned area. A missing call could introduce problems on some architectures. This patch incorporates the access_ok() check into compat_alloc_user_space() and also adds a sanity check on the length. The existing compat_alloc_user_space() implementations are renamed arch_compat_alloc_user_space() and are used as part of the implementation of the new global function. This patch assumes NULL will cause __get_user()/__put_user() to either fail or access userspace on all architectures. This should be followed by checking the return value of compat_access_user_space() for NULL in the callers, at which time the access_ok() in the callers can also be removed.

2010-09-09libata: skip EH autopsy and recovery during suspendTejun Heo1-0/+1
For some mysterious reason, certain hardware reacts badly to usual EH actions while the system is going for suspend. As the devices won't be needed until the system is resumed, ask EH to skip usual autopsy and recovery and proceed directly to suspend.

2010-09-09mm: page allocator: calculate a better estimate of NR_FREE_PAGES when memory is low and kswapd is awakeChristoph Lameter2-0/+35
Ordinarily watermark checks are based on the vmstat NR_FREE_PAGES as it is cheaper than scanning a number of lists. To avoid synchronization overhead, counter deltas are maintained on a per-cpu basis and drained both periodically and when the delta is above a threshold. On large CPU systems, the difference between the estimated and real value of NR_FREE_PAGES can be very high. If NR_FREE_PAGES is much higher than number of real free page in buddy, the VM can allocate pages below min watermark, at worst reducing the real number of pages to zero. Even if the OOM killer kills some victim for freeing memory, it may not free memory if the exit path requires a new page resulting in livelock. This patch introduces a zone_page_state_snapshot() function (courtesy of Christoph) that takes a slightly more accurate view of an arbitrary vmstat counter. It is used to read NR_FREE_PAGES while kswapd is awake to avoid the watermark being accidentally broken. The estimate is not perfect and may result in cache line bounces but is expected to be lighter than the IPI calls necessary to continually drain the per-cpu counters while kswapd is awake.

2010-09-09swap: discard while swapping only if SWAP_FLAG_DISCARDHugh Dickins1-1/+2
Tests with recent firmware on Intel X25-M 80GB and OCZ Vertex 60GB SSDs show a shift since I last tested in December: in part because of firmware updates, in part because of the necessary move from barriers to awaiting completion at the block layer. While discard at swapon still shows as slightly beneficial on both, discarding 1MB swap cluster when allocating is now disadvanteous: adds 25% overhead on Intel, adds 230% on OCZ (YMMV). Surrender: discard as presently implemented is more hindrance than help for swap; but might prove useful on other devices, or with improvements. So continue to do the discard at swapon, but make discard while swapping conditional on a SWAP_FLAG_DISCARD to sys_swapon() (which has been using only the lower 16 bits of int flags). We can add a --discard or -d to swapon(8), and a "discard" to swap in /etc/fstab: matching the mount option for btrfs, ext4, fat, gfs2, nilfs2.

2010-09-09swap: revert special hibernation allocationHugh Dickins1-7/+1
Please revert 2.6.36-rc commit d2997b1042ec150616c1963b5e5e919ffd0b0ebf "hibernation: freeze swap at hibernation". It complicated matters by adding a second swap allocation path, just for hibernation; without in any way fixing the issue that it was intended to address - page reclaim after fixing the hibernation image might free swap from a page already imaged as swapcache, letting its swap be reallocated to store a different page of the image: resulting in data corruption if the imaged page were freed as clean then swapped back in. Pages freed to si->swap_map were still in danger of being reallocated by the alternative allocation path. I guess it inadvertently fixed slow SSD swap allocation for hibernation, as reported by Nigel Cunningham: by missing out the discards that occur on the usual swap allocation path; but that was unintentional, and needs a separate fix.

2010-09-09gpio: sx150x: correct and refine reset-on-probe behaviorGregory Bean1-0/+4
Replace the arbitrary software-reset call from the device-probe method, because: - It is defective. To work correctly, it should be two byte writes, not a single word write. As it stands, it does nothing. - Some devices with sx150x expanders installed have their NRESET pins ganged on the same line, so resetting one causes the others to reset - not a nice thing to do arbitrarily! - The probe, usually taking place at boot, implies a recent hard-reset, so a software reset at this point is just a waste of energy anyway. Therefore, make it optional, defaulting to off, as this will match the common case of probing at powerup and also matches the current broken no-op behavior.

2010-09-09mm: fix swapin race conditionAndrea Arcangeli1-11/+9
The pte_same check is reliable only if the swap entry remains pinned (by the page lock on swapcache). We've also to ensure the swapcache isn't removed before we take the lock as try_to_free_swap won't care about the page pin. One of the possible impacts of this patch is that a KSM-shared page can point to the anon_vma of another process, which could exit before the page is freed. This can leave a page with a pointer to a recycled anon_vma object, or worse, a pointer to something that is no longer an anon_vma.

2010-09-09cgroups: fix API thinkoMichael S. Tsirkin1-1/+11
Add cgroup_attach_task_all() The existing cgroup_attach_task_current_cg() API is called by a thread to attach another thread to all of its cgroups; this is unsuitable for cases where a privileged task wants to attach itself to the cgroups of a less privileged one, since the call must be made from the context of the target task. This patch adds a more generic cgroup_attach_task_all() API that allows both the source task and to-be-moved task to be specified. cgroup_attach_task_current_cg() becomes a specialization of the more generic new function.
