2009-10-08cfq-iosched: avoid probable slice overrun when idlingCorrado Zoccolo
If the average think time is larger than the remaining time slice for any given queue, don't allow it to idle. A succesful idle also means that we need to dispatch and complete a request, so if we don't even have time left for the idle process, we would overrun the slice in any case.

2009-10-07cfq-iosched: fix think time allowed for seekersCorrado Zoccolo
CFQ enables idle only for processes that think less than the allowed idle time. Since idle time is lower for seeky queues, we should use the correct value in the comparison. Signed-off-by: Corrado Zoccolo <czoccolo@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2009-10-06cfq-iosched: fix the slice residual signJens Axboe
We should subtract the slice residual from the rb tree key, since a negative residual count indicates that the cfqq overran its slice the last time. Hence we want to add the overrun time, to position it a bit further away in the service tree. Reported-by: Corrado Zoccolo <czoccolo@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

2009-10-06block: Seperate read and write statistics of in_flight requests v2Nikanth Karthikesan
Commit a9327cac440be4d8333bba975cbbf76045096275 added seperate read and write statistics of in_flight requests. And exported the number of read and write requests in progress seperately through sysfs. But Corrado Zoccolo <czoccolo@gmail.com> reported getting strange output from "iostat -kx 2". Global values for service time and utilization were garbage. For interval values, utilization was always 100%, and service time is higher than normal. So this was reverted by commit 0f78ab9899e9d6acb09d5465def618704255963b The problem was in part_round_stats_single(), I missed the following: if (now == part->stamp) return; - if (part->in_flight) { + if (part_in_flight(part)) { __part_stat_add(cpu, part, time_in_queue, part_in_flight(part) * (now - part->stamp)); __part_stat_add(cpu, part, io_ticks, (now - part->stamp)); With this chunk included, the reported regression gets fixed.

I'm skipping -rc2 because the -rc1 Makefile mistakenly said -rc2, so in order to avoid confusion, I'm jumping from -rc1 to -rc3. That way, when 'uname' (or an oops report) says 2.6.32-rc2, there's no confusion about whether people perhaps meant -rc1 or -rc2.

2009-10-03tty: Avoid dropping ldisc_mutex over hangup tty re-initializationLinus Torvalds
A couple of people have hit the WARN_ON() in drivers/char/tty_io.c, tty_open() that is unhappy about seeing the tty line discipline go away during the tty hangup. See for example http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14255 and the reason is that we do the tty_ldisc_halt() outside the ldisc_mutex in order to be able to flush the scheduled work without a deadlock with vhangup_work. However, it turns out that we can solve this particular case by - using "cancel_delayed_work_sync()" in tty_ldisc_halt(), which waits for just the particular work, rather than synchronizing with any random outstanding pending work. This won't deadlock, since the buf.work we synchronize with doesn't care about the ldisc_mutex, it just flushes the tty ldisc buffers. - realize that for this particular case, we don't need to wait for any hangup work, because we are inside the hangup codepaths ourselves. so as a result we can just drop the flush_scheduled_work() entirely, and then move the tty_ldisc_halt() call to inside the mutex. That way we never expose the partially torn down ldisc state to tty_open(), and hold the ldisc_mutex over the whole sequence.

The m32r SMP kernel hanged-up during boot operation, because the CPU_BOOT_IPI was called instead of CALL_FUNC_SINGLE_IPI (CPU_BOOT_IPI had no side effect at that time because the 2nd core had already been started up), as a result, csd_unlock() was not called, then a dead lock occurred in csd_lock_wait() after the detection of Compact Flash memory as IDE generic disk.
