2007-07-17Freezer: make kernel threads nonfreezable by defaultRafael J. Wysocki
Currently, the freezer treats all tasks as freezable, except for the kernel threads that explicitly set the PF_NOFREEZE flag for themselves. This approach is problematic, since it requires every kernel thread to either set PF_NOFREEZE explicitly, or call try_to_freeze(), even if it doesn't care for the freezing of tasks at all. It seems better to only require the kernel threads that want to or need to be frozen to use some freezer-related code and to remove any freezer-related code from the other (nonfreezable) kernel threads, which is done in this patch. The patch causes all kernel threads to be nonfreezable by default (ie. to have PF_NOFREEZE set by default) and introduces the set_freezable() function that should be called by the freezable kernel threads in order to unset PF_NOFREEZE. It also makes all of the currently freezable kernel threads call set_freezable(), so it shouldn't cause any (intentional) change of behaviour to appear. Additionally, it updates documentation to describe the freezing of tasks more accurately. [akpm@linux-foundation.org: build fixes] Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2007-07-17SLUB: change error reporting format to follow lockdep looselyChristoph Lameter
Changes the error reporting format to loosely follow lockdep. If data corruption is detected then we generate the following lines: ============================================ BUG <slab-cache>: <problem> -------------------------------------------- INFO: <more information> [possibly multiple times] <object dump> FIX <slab-cache>: <remedial action> This also adds some more intelligence to the data corruption detection. Its now capable of figuring out the start and end. Add a comment on how to configure SLUB so that a production system may continue to operate even though occasional slab corruption occur through a misbehaving kernel component.

2007-07-17Add a movablecore= parameter for sizing ZONE_MOVABLEMel Gorman
This patch adds a new parameter for sizing ZONE_MOVABLE called movablecore=. While kernelcore= is used to specify the minimum amount of memory that must be available for all allocation types, movablecore= is used to specify the minimum amount of memory that is used for migratable allocations. The amount of memory used for migratable allocations determines how large the huge page pool could be dynamically resized to at runtime for example. How movablecore is actually handled is that the total number of pages in the system is calculated and a value is set for kernelcore that is kernelcore == totalpages - movablecore Both kernelcore= and movablecore= can be safely specified at the same time.

2007-07-17handle kernelcore=: genericMel Gorman
This patch adds the kernelcore= parameter for x86. Once all patches are applied, a new command-line parameter exist and a new sysctl. This patch adds the necessary documentation. From: Yasunori Goto <y-goto@jp.fujitsu.com> When "kernelcore" boot option is specified, kernel can't boot up on ia64 because of an infinite loop. In addition, the parsing code can be handled in an architecture-independent manner. This patch uses common code to handle the kernelcore= parameter. It is only available to architectures that support arch-independent zone-sizing (i.e. define CONFIG_ARCH_POPULATES_NODE_MAP). Other architectures will ignore the boot parameter.

The UMSDOS filesystem was removed back in 2.6.11, but some tiny bits stuck around. This patch removes the few remaining leftovers. The only things left behind after this are the entries in the CREDITS file and the ioctl number in Documentation/ioctl-number.txt as documentation. This third (hopefully final) version of the patch doesn't edit the arch/um/config.release file, since Jeff Dike pointed out to me that it should die completely, and asked me to remove it from my patch as he'll send in a seperate patch removing the file completely.
