2008-03-09alpha: fix iommu-related boot panicIvan Kokshaysky
This fixes a boot panic due to a typo in the recent iommu patchset from FUJITA Tomonori <> - the code used dma_get_max_seg_size() instead of dma_get_seg_boundary(). It also removes a couple of unnecessary BUG_ON() and ALIGN() macros.

2008-03-09cpu hotplug: adjust root-domain->online span in response to hotplug eventGregory Haskins
We currently set the root-domain online span automatically when the domain is added to the cpu if the cpu is already a member of cpu_online_map. This was done as a hack/bug-fix for s2ram, but it also causes a problem with hotplug CPU_DOWN transitioning. The right way to fix the original problem is to actually respond to CPU_UP events, instead of CPU_ONLINE, which is already too late. This solves the hung reboot regression reported by Andrew Morton and others.

2008-03-09time: remove obsolete CLOCK_TICK_ADJUSTRoman Zippel
The first version of the ntp_interval/tick_length inconsistent usage patch was recently merged as bbe4d18ac2e058c56adb0cd71f49d9ed3216a405;a=commit;h=bbe4d18ac2e058c56adb0cd71f49d9ed3216a405 While the fix did greatly improve the situation, it was correctly pointed out by Roman that it does have a small bug: If the users change clocksources after the system has been running and NTP has made corrections, the correctoins made against the old clocksource will be applied against the new clocksource, causing error. The second attempt, which corrects the issue in the NTP_INTERVAL_LENGTH definition has also made it up-stream as commit e13a2e61dd5152f5499d2003470acf9c838eab84;a=commit;h=e13a2e61dd5152f5499d2003470acf9c838eab84 Roman has correctly pointed out that CLOCK_TICK_ADJUST is calculated based on the PIT's frequency, and isn't really relevant to non-PIT driven clocksources (that is, clocksources other then jiffies and pit). This patch reverts both of those changes, and simply removes CLOCK_TICK_ADJUST. This does remove the granularity error correction for users of PIT and Jiffies clocksource users, but the granularity error but for the majority of users, it should be within the 500ppm range NTP can accommodate for. For systems that have granularity errors greater then 500ppm, the "ntp_tick_adj=" boot option can be used to compensate.

2008-03-07x86_64: make ptrace always sign-extend orig_ax to 64 bitsRoland McGrath
This makes 64-bit ptrace calls setting the 64-bit orig_ax field for a 32-bit task sign-extend the low 32 bits up to 64. This matches what a 64-bit debugger expects when tracing a 32-bit task. This follows on my "x86_64 ia32 syscall restart fix". This didn't matter until that was fixed. The debugger ignores or zeros the high half of every register slot it sets (including the orig_rax pseudo-register) uniformly. It expects that the setting of the low 32 bits always has the same meaning as a 32-bit debugger setting those same 32 bits with native 32-bit facilities. This never arose before because the syscall restart check never matched any -ERESTART* values due to lack of sign extension. Before that fix, even 32-bit ptrace setting orig_eax to -1 failed to trigger the restart check anyway. So this was never noticed as a regression of 64-bit debuggers vs 32-bit debuggers on the same 64-bit kernel.

As long as the directory contents haven't changed, we should just let the path walk proceed to cross the mountpoint.

2008-03-07gigaset: fix Oops on module unload regressionTilman Schmidt
The card state mutex was only initialized when a device was connected, but used during unload unconditionally, leading to an Oops if a driver was loaded and unloaded again without ever connecting a device. Fix this by initializing the mutex as soon as the structure is allocated. Also add a missing mutex unlock revealed in the same execution path. This fixes a possible Oops in 2.6.25-rc that was introduced by commit e468c04894f36045cf93d1384183a461014b6840 ("Gigaset: permit module unload"). Thanks to Roland Kletzing for reporting this problem.

2008-03-07sched: balance RT task resched only on runqueueSteven Rostedt
Sripathi Kodi reported a crash in the -rt kernel: this is due to a place that can reschedule a task without holding the tasks runqueue lock. This was caused by the RT balancing code that pulls RT tasks to the current run queue and will reschedule the current task. There's a slight chance that the pulling of the RT tasks will release the current runqueue's lock and retake it (in the double_lock_balance). During this time that the runqueue is released, the current task can migrate to another runqueue. In the prio_changed_rt code, after the pull, if the current task is of lesser priority than one of the RT tasks pulled, resched_task is called on the current task. If the current task had migrated in that small window, resched_task will be called without holding the runqueue lock for the runqueue that the task is on. This race condition also exists in the mainline kernel and this patch adds a check to make sure the task hasn't migrated before calling resched_task.

2008-03-07x86-boot: don't request VBE2 informationPeter Korsgaard
The new x86 setup code (4fd06960f120) broke booting on an old P3/500MHz with an onboard Voodoo3 of mine. After debugging it, it turned out to be caused by the fact that the vesa probing now asks for VBE2 data. Disassembing the video BIOS shows that it overflows the vesa_general_info structure when VBE2 data is requested because the source addresses for the information strings which get strcpy'ed to the buffer lie outside the 32K BIOS code (and hence contain long sequences of 0xff's).

2008-03-06slab: NUMA slab allocator migration bugfixJoe Korty
NUMA slab allocator cpu migration bugfix The NUMA slab allocator (specifically, cache_alloc_refill) is not refreshing its local copies of what cpu and what numa node it is on, when it drops and reacquires the irq block that it inherited from its caller. As a result those values become invalid if an attempt to migrate the process to another numa node occured while the irq block had been dropped. The solution is to make cache_alloc_refill reload these variables whenever it drops and reacquires the irq block. The error is very difficult to hit. When it does occur, one gets the following oops + stack traceback bits in check_spinlock_acquired: kernel BUG at mm/slab.c:2417 cache_alloc_refill+0xe6 kmem_cache_alloc+0xd0 ... This patch was developed against 2.6.23, ported to and compiled-tested only against 2.6.25-rc4. Signed-off-by: Joe Korty <> Signed-off-by: Christoph Lameter <>
2008-03-06slub: Do not cross cacheline boundaries for very small objectsNick Piggin
SLUB should pack even small objects nicely into cachelines if that is what has been asked for. Use the same algorithm as SLAB for this. The effect of this patch for a system with a cacheline size of 64 bytes is that the 24 byte sized slab caches will now put exactly 2 objects into a cacheline instead of 3 with some overlap into the next cacheline. This reduces the object density in a 4k slab from 170 to 128 objects (same as SLAB). Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <> Signed-off-by: Christoph Lameter <>

2008-03-06slab numa fallback logic: Do not pass unfiltered flags to page allocatorChristoph Lameter
The NUMA fallback logic should be passing local_flags to kmem_get_pages() and not simply the flags passed in. Reviewed-by: Pekka Enberg <> Signed-off-by: Christoph Lameter <>
