2009-05-06initramfs: clean up messages related to initramfs unpackingEric Piel1-9/+4
With the removal of duplicate unpack_to_rootfs() (commit df52092f3c97788592ef72501a43fb7ac6a3cfe0) the messages displayed do not actually correspond to what the kernel is doing. In addition, depending if ramdisks are supported or not, the messages are not at all the same. So keep the messages more in sync with what is really doing the kernel, and only display a second message in case of failure. This also ensure that the printk message cannot be split by other printk's. Signed-off-by: Eric Piel <eric.piel@tremplin-utc.net> Acked-by: H.

2009-04-16Driver Core: early platform driverMagnus Damm1-1/+6
V3 of the early platform driver implementation. Platform drivers are great for embedded platforms because we can separate driver configuration from the actual driver. So base addresses, interrupts and other configuration can be kept with the processor or board code, and the platform driver can be reused by many different platforms. For early devices we have nothing today. For instance, to configure early timers and early serial ports we cannot use platform devices. This because the setup order during boot. Timers are needed before the platform driver core code is available. The same goes for early printk support. Early in this case means before initcalls. These early drivers today have their configuration either hard coded or they receive it using some special configuration method. This is working quite well, but if we want to support both regular kernel modules and early devices then we need to have two ways of configuring the same driver. A single way would be better. The early platform driver patch is basically a set of functions that allow drivers to register themselves and architecture code to locate them and probe. Registration happens through early_param(). The time for the probe is decided by the architecture code. See Documentation/driver-model/platform.txt for more details.

2009-04-13initramfs: fix initramfs to work with hardlinked initRandy Robertson1-1/+2
Change cb6ff208076b5f434db1b8c983429269d719cef5 ("NOMMU: Support XIP on initramfs") seems to have broken booting from initramfs with /sbin/init being a hardlink. It seems like the logic required for XIP on nommu, i.e. ftruncate to reported cpio header file size (body_len) is broken for hardlinks, which have a reported size of 0, and the truncate thus nukes the contents of the file (in my case busybox), making boot impossible and ending with runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000 - and of course 0000 is not a valid binary format. My fix is to only call ftruncate if size is non-zero which fixes things for me, but I'm not certain whether this will break XIP for those files on nommu systems, although I would guess not.

Make it possible for the linker to discard local symbols from vmlinux as they cause vmlinux to balloon when CONFIG_KALLSYMS=y and they cause dump_stack() and get_wchan() to produce useless information under some circumstances. With this we add a config option (CONFIG_STRIP_ASM_SYMS) that will cause the build to supply -X to the linker to tell it to strip temporary local symbols. This doesn't seem to cause gdb any problems.

2009-04-03Create a dynamically sized pool of threads for doing very slow work itemsDavid Howells1-0/+12
Create a dynamically sized pool of threads for doing very slow work items, such as invoking mkdir() or rmdir() - things that may take a long time and may sleep, holding mutexes/semaphores and hogging a thread, and are thus unsuitable for workqueues. The number of threads is always at least a settable minimum, but more are started when there's more work to do, up to a limit. Because of the nature of the load, it's not suitable for a 1-thread-per-CPU type pool. A system with one CPU may well want several threads. This is used by FS-Cache to do slow caching operations in the background, such as looking up, creating or deleting cache objects.

One day gcc could bite us over this usage (though we seem to have gotten away with it so far).

2009-02-26rcu: Teach RCU that idle task is not quiscent state at bootPaul E. McKenney1-1/+2
This patch fixes a bug located by Vegard Nossum with the aid of kmemcheck, updated based on review comments from Nick Piggin, Ingo Molnar, and Andrew Morton. And cleans up the variable-name and function-name language. ;-) The boot CPU runs in the context of its idle thread during boot-up. During this time, idle_cpu(0) will always return nonzero, which will fool Classic and Hierarchical RCU into deciding that a large chunk of the boot-up sequence is a big long quiescent state. This in turn causes RCU to prematurely end grace periods during this time. This patch changes the rcutree.c and rcuclassic.c rcu_check_callbacks() function to ignore the idle task as a quiescent state until the system has started up the scheduler in rest_init(), introducing a new non-API function rcu_idle_now_means_idle() to inform RCU of this transition. RCU maintains an internal rcu_idle_cpu_truthful variable to track this state, which is then used by rcu_check_callback() to determine if it should believe idle_cpu(). Because this patch has the effect of disallowing RCU grace periods during long stretches of the boot-up sequence, this patch also introduces Josh Triplett's UP-only optimization that makes synchronize_rcu() be a no-op if num_online_cpus() returns 1. This allows boot-time code that calls synchronize_rcu() to proceed normally. Note, however, that RCU callbacks registered by call_rcu() will likely queue up until later in the boot sequence. Although rcuclassic and rcutree can also use this same optimization after boot completes, rcupreempt must restrict its use of this optimization to the portion of the boot sequence before the scheduler starts up, given that an rcupreempt RCU read-side critical section may be preeempted. In addition, this patch takes Nick Piggin's suggestion to make the system_state global variable be __read_mostly. Changes since v4: o Changes the name of the introduced function and variable to be less emotional. ;-) Changes since v3: o WARN_ON(nr_context_switches() > 0) to verify that RCU switches out of boot-time mode before the first context switch, as suggested by Nick Piggin. Changes since v2: o Created rcu_blocking_is_gp() internal-to-RCU API that determines whether a call to synchronize_rcu() is itself a grace period. o The definition of rcu_blocking_is_gp() for rcuclassic and rcutree checks to see if but a single CPU is online. o The definition of rcu_blocking_is_gp() for rcupreempt checks to see both if but a single CPU is online and if the system is still in early boot. This allows rcupreempt to again work correctly if running on a single CPU after booting is complete. o Added check to rcupreempt's synchronize_sched() for there being but one online CPU. Tested all three variants both SMP and !SMP, booted fine, passed a short rcutorture test on both x86 and Power.

2009-02-21Consolidate driver_probe_done() loops into one placeArjan van de Ven2-6/+12
there's a few places that currently loop over driver_probe_done(), and I'm about to add another one. This patch abstracts it into a helper to reduce duplication.

2009-02-20tracing/markers: make markers select tracepointsFrederic Weisbecker1-1/+1
Sometimes it happens that KConfig dependencies are not handled like in the following scenario: - config A bool - config B bool depends on A - config C bool select B If one selects C, then it will select B without checking its dependency to A, if A hasn't been selected elsewhere, it will result in a build failure. This is what happens on the following build error: kernel/built-in.o: In function `marker_update_probe_range': (.text+0x52f64): undefined reference to `tracepoint_probe_register_noupdate' kernel/built-in.o: In function `marker_update_probe_range': (.text+0x52f74): undefined reference to `tracepoint_probe_unregister_noupdate' kernel/built-in.o: In function `marker_update_probe_range': (.text+0x52fb9): undefined reference to `tracepoint_probe_unregister_noupdate' kernel/built-in.o: In function `marker_update_probes': marker.c:(.text+0x530ba): undefined reference to `tracepoint_probe_update_all' CONFIG_KVM_TRACE will select CONFIG_MARKER, but the latter depends on CONFIG_TRACEPOINTS which will not be selected.

2009-02-05smp, generic: introduce arch_disable_smp_support() instead of disable_ioapic_setup()Ingo Molnar1-6/+6
Impact: cleanup disable_ioapic_setup() in init/main.c is ugly as the function is x86-specific. The #ifdef inline prototype there is ugly too. Replace it with a generic arch_disable_smp_support() function - which has a weak alias for non-x86 architectures and for non-ioapic x86 builds. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
