2007-10-10[SSB]: add Sonics Silicon Backplane bus supportMichael Buesch1-0/+19
SSB is an SoC bus used in a number of embedded devices. The most well-known of these devices is probably the Linksys WRT54G, but there are others as well. The bus is also used internally on the BCM43xx and BCM44xx devices from Broadcom. This patch also includes support for SSB ID tables in modules, so that SSB drivers can be loaded automatically.

2007-09-01kconfig: oldconfig shall not set symbols if it does not need toRoman Zippel1-9/+12
Avoid setting the value if the symbol doesn't need to be changed or can't be changed. Later choices may change the dependencies and thus the possible input range. make oldconfig from a 2.6.22 .config with CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU not set was in some configurations setting CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU=y without asking, even when there was no actual requirement for CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU. This was triggered by SUSPEND_SMP that does a select HOTPLUG_CPU.

2007-07-25kbuild: fix modpost warnings for xtensaSam Ravnborg1-6/+24
The Xtensa architecture places literal pools in sections separate from the instructions. The corresponsing text sections, therefore, reference the .literal section, and we have to suppress those warnings. The naming convention defines the name for a literal section as .SECTION.literal, unless .SECTION is .text. In that case the name is only .literal. Using strncmp() instead of strcmp() to compare the from-section with .SECTION.init.refok in pattern 0 should not cause any regressions for other architectures. We also need to suppress warnings for two informational sections (.xt.lit and .xt.prop) used by the Xtensa architecture.

2007-07-25kbuild: be more foregiving on init section namingSam Ravnborg1-26/+10
In the whitelist function of modpost now use the same check to identify init_section as in other places of modpost.

2007-07-17kallsyms: make KSYM_NAME_LEN include space for trailing '\0'Tejun Heo1-2/+2
KSYM_NAME_LEN is peculiar in that it does not include the space for the trailing '\0', forcing all users to use KSYM_NAME_LEN + 1 when allocating buffer. This is nonsense and error-prone. Moreover, when the caller forgets that it's very likely to subtly bite back by corrupting the stack because the last position of the buffer is always cleared to zero. This patch increments KSYM_NAME_LEN by one and updates code accordingly. * off-by-one bug in asm-powerpc/kprobes.h::kprobe_lookup_name() macro is fixed. * Where MODULE_NAME_LEN and KSYM_NAME_LEN were used together, MODULE_NAME_LEN was treated as if it didn't include space for the trailing '\0'.

2007-07-17kconfig: reset generated values only if Kconfig and .config agree.Roman Zippel1-11/+26
Normally generated values (Kconfig entries without a prompt) are cleared as they are regenerated anyway and so they appear as new should they become visible and defaults work as expected (once a value is set defaults aren't used anymore). The detection whether a value is generated or not is only based on its visibility status, which can quickly change for a lot of symbols by just removing a single line from .config or adding a dependency to Kconfig as you noticed. The patch now suppresses this logic when .config and Kconfig aren't in sync and .config needs to be updated, so that you can remove now a random value from .config and oldconfig won't reask for many other values.

2007-07-17kbuild: do section mismatch check on full vmlinuxSam Ravnborg2-3/+4
Previously we did do the check on the .o files used to link vmlinux but that failed to find questionable references across the .o files. Create a dedicated vmlinux.o file used only for section mismatch checks that uses the defualt linker script so section does not get renamed. The vmlinux.o may later be used as part of the the final link of vmlinux but for now it is used fo section mismatch only.

A bug in headers_install for ARCH=x86_64 yields an asm/ directory full of files all of which are using the same #ifdef guard, "__ASM_STUB_" with no postfix. So the second and later asm files #included in the same C file (often through standard headers like ioctl.h) yields no symbols. Strangeness with the Ubuntu 'tell me if I support something that's not explcitly mentioned in POSIX, and I'll strip it out' shell, I believe.

2007-06-28Introduce fixed sys_sync_file_range2() syscall, implement on PowerPC and ARMDavid Woodhouse1-0/+5
Not all the world is an i386. Many architectures need 64-bit arguments to be aligned in suitable pairs of registers, and the original sys_sync_file_range(int, loff_t, loff_t, int) was therefore wasting an argument register for padding after the first integer. Since we don't normally have more than 6 arguments for system calls, that left no room for the final argument on some architectures. Fix this by introducing sys_sync_file_range2(int, int, loff_t, loff_t) which all fits nicely. In fact, ARM already had that, but called it sys_arm_sync_file_range. Move it to fs/sync.c and rename it, then implement the needed compatibility routine. And stop the missing syscall check from bitching about the absence of sys_sync_file_range() if we've implemented sys_sync_file_range2() instead. Tested on PPC32 and with 32-bit and 64-bit userspace on PPC64.

Of note: - do { and else handled correctly as control structures for { matching - trailing whitespace correctly tripped when line otherwise empty - support for const, including const foo * const bar - multiline macros defining values correctly reported This version of checkpatch.pl can be found at the following URL: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/apw/checkpatch/checkpatch.pl-0.06 Full Changelog: Andy Whitcroft (14): Version: 0.06 cleanup the Type regular expression declarations fix up block counting end of line counts as a space for ++ and -- do { needs the same checks as if, for et al handle "const foo * const a" as a valid type add spacing checks following ; complete whitespace lines should trip trailing whitespace check else is also a block control structure badly formatted else can trip function declaration detect and report trailing statements after else types need to be terminated by a boundary multiline macros defining values should be surrounded by parentheses soften the wording of the Signed-off-by: warnings Signed-off-by: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Cc: "Randy.Dunlap" <rdunlap@xenotime.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-06-24update checkpatch.pl to version 0.05Andy Whitcroft1-54/+129
This version brings a some new tests, and a host of changes to fix false positives, of particular note: - detect 'var ++;' and 'var --;' as a bad combination - multistatement #defines are now checked based on statement count - multistatement #defines with initialisation correctly reported - checks the location of the inline keywords - EXPORT_SYMBOL for variables are now understood - typedefs are loosened to handle sparse etc This version of checkpatch.pl can be found at the following URL: http://www.shadowen.org/~apw/public/checkpatch/checkpatch.pl-0.05 Full Changelog: Andy Whitcroft (18): Version: 0.05 macro definition checks should be for a single statement avoid assignements only in if conditionals declarations of function pointers need no space multiline macros which are purely initialisation cannot be wrapped EXPORT_SYMBOL can also directly follow a variable definition check on the location of the inline keyword EXPORT_SYMBOL needs to allow for attributes ensure we do not find C99 // in strings handle malformed #include lines accept the {0,} form typedefs are sensible for defining function pointer parameters ensure { handling correctly handles nested switch() statements trailing whitespace checks are not anchored typedefs for sparse bitwise annotations make sense update the type matcher to include sparse annotations clean up indent and spacing Signed-off-by: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
