2012-05-10sparc64: Do not clobber %g2 in xcall_fetch_glob_regs().David S. Miller
%g2 is meant to hold the CPUID number throughout this routine, since at the very beginning, and at the very end, we use %g2 to calculate indexes into per-cpu arrays. However we erroneously clobber it in order to hold the %cwp register value mid-stream. Fix this code to use %g3 for the %cwp read and related calulcations instead.

2012-04-13sparc64: Eliminate obsolete __handle_softirq() functionPaul E. McKenney
The invocation of softirq is now handled by irq_exit(), so there is no need for sparc64 to invoke it on the trap-return path. In fact, doing so is a bug because if the trap occurred in the idle loop, this invocation can result in lockdep-RCU failures. The problem is that RCU ignores idle CPUs, and the sparc64 trap-return path to the softirq handlers fails to tell RCU that the CPU must be considered non-idle while those handlers are executing. This means that RCU is ignoring any RCU read-side critical sections in those handlers, which in turn means that RCU-protected data can be yanked out from under those read-side critical sections. The shiny new lockdep-RCU ability to detect RCU read-side critical sections that RCU is ignoring located this problem. The fix is straightforward: Make sparc64 stop manually invoking the softirq handlers. Reported-by: Meelis Roos <> Suggested-by: David Miller <> Signed-off-by: Paul E.

git:// Pull DMA mapping branch from Marek Szyprowski: "Short summary for the whole series: A few limitations have been identified in the current dma-mapping design and its implementations for various architectures. There exist more than one function for allocating and freeing the buffers: currently these 3 are used dma_{alloc, free}_coherent, dma_{alloc,free}_writecombine, dma_{alloc,free}_noncoherent. For most of the systems these calls are almost equivalent and can be interchanged. For others, especially the truly non-coherent ones (like ARM), the difference can be easily noticed in overall driver performance. Sadly not all architectures provide implementations for all of them, so the drivers might need to be adapted and cannot be easily shared between different architectures. The provided patches unify all these functions and hide the differences under the already existing dma attributes concept. The thread with more references is available here: These patches are also a prerequisite for unifying DMA-mapping implementation on ARM architecture with the common one provided by dma_map_ops structure and extending it with IOMMU support. More information is available in the following thread: More works on dma-mapping framework are planned, especially in the area of buffer sharing and managing the shared mappings (together with the recently introduced dma_buf interface: commit d15bd7ee445d "dma-buf: Introduce dma buffer sharing mechanism"). The patches in the current set introduce a new alloc/free methods (with support for memory attributes) in dma_map_ops structure, which will later replace dma_alloc_coherent and dma_alloc_writecombine functions." People finally started piping up with support for merging this, so I'm merging it as the last of the pending stuff from the merge window. Looks like pohmelfs is going to wait for 3.5 and more external support for merging. * 'for-linus' of git:// common: DMA-mapping: add NON-CONSISTENT attribute common: DMA-mapping: add WRITE_COMBINE attribute common: dma-mapping: introduce mmap method common: dma-mapping: remove old alloc_coherent and free_coherent methods Hexagon: adapt for dma_map_ops changes Unicore32: adapt for dma_map_ops changes Microblaze: adapt for dma_map_ops changes SH: adapt for dma_map_ops changes Alpha: adapt for dma_map_ops changes SPARC: adapt for dma_map_ops changes PowerPC: adapt for dma_map_ops changes MIPS: adapt for dma_map_ops changes X86 & IA64: adapt for dma_map_ops changes common: dma-mapping: introduce generic alloc() and free() methods

git:// Pull "Disintegrate and delete asm/system.h" from David Howells: "Here are a bunch of patches to disintegrate asm/system.h into a set of separate bits to relieve the problem of circular inclusion dependencies. I've built all the working defconfigs from all the arches that I can and made sure that they don't break. The reason for these patches is that I recently encountered a circular dependency problem that came about when I produced some patches to optimise get_order() by rewriting it to use ilog2(). This uses bitops - and on the SH arch asm/bitops.h drags in asm-generic/get_order.h by a circuituous route involving asm/system.h. The main difficulty seems to be asm/system.h. It holds a number of low level bits with no/few dependencies that are commonly used (eg. memory barriers) and a number of bits with more dependencies that aren't used in many places (eg. switch_to()). These patches break asm/system.h up into the following core pieces: (1) asm/barrier.h Move memory barriers here. This already done for MIPS and Alpha. (2) asm/switch_to.h Move switch_to() and related stuff here. (3) asm/exec.h Move arch_align_stack() here. Other process execution related bits could perhaps go here from asm/processor.h. (4) asm/cmpxchg.h Move xchg() and cmpxchg() here as they're full word atomic ops and frequently used by atomic_xchg() and atomic_cmpxchg(). (5) asm/bug.h Move die() and related bits. (6) asm/auxvec.h Move AT_VECTOR_SIZE_ARCH here. Other arch headers are created as needed on a per-arch basis."

2012-03-20sparc/PCI: convert devtree and arch-probed bus addresses to resourceBjorn Helgaas
Normal PCI enumeration via PCI config space uses __pci_read_base(), where the PCI core applies any bus-to-resource offset. But sparc sometimes reads PCI config space itself, and sometimes it gets addresses from the device tree. In ac1edcc579b6, I converted sparc to use the PCI core bus-to-resource conversion, but I missed these sparc-specific paths. I don't have a way to test it, but I think sparc is broken between that commit and this one. This patch replaces the sparc-specific pci_resource_adjust() with the generic pcibios_bus_to_resource() in the following paths: pci_cfg_fake_ranges() (addresses read from PCI config) apb_fake_ranges() (addresses computed based on PCI config) of_scan_pci_bridge() (addresses from OF "ranges" property) N.B.: Resources of non-P2P bridge devices are set in pci_parse_of_addrs() and, as far as I can see, never converted to CPU addresses. I do not understand why these would be treated differently than bridge windows. CC: "David S. Miller" <> CC: Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <> Signed-off-by: Jesse Barnes <>

Tell the PCI core about host bridge address translation so it can take care of bus-to-resource conversion for us. N.B. Leon apparently never uses initial BAR values, so it didn't matter that we never fixed up the I/O resources from bus address to CPU addresses. Other sparc uses pci_of_scan_bus(), which sets device resources directly to CPU addresses, not bus addresses, so it didn't need pcibios_fixup_bus() either. But by telling the core about the offsets, we can nuke pcibios_resource_to_bus(). CC: "David S. Miller" <> CC: Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <>

2012-01-17audit: inline audit_syscall_entry to reduce burden on archsEric Paris
Every arch calls: if (unlikely(current->audit_context)) audit_syscall_entry() which requires knowledge about audit (the existance of audit_context) in the arch code. Just do it all in static inline in audit.h so that arch's can remain blissfully ignorant. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <>
2012-01-17Audit: push audit success and retcode into arch ptrace.hEric Paris
The audit system previously expected arches calling to audit_syscall_exit to supply as arguments if the syscall was a success and what the return code was. Audit also provides a helper AUDITSC_RESULT which was supposed to simplify things by converting from negative retcodes to an audit internal magic value stating success or failure. This helper was wrong and could indicate that a valid pointer returned to userspace was a failed syscall. The fix is to fix the layering foolishness. We now pass audit_syscall_exit a struct pt_reg and it in turns calls back into arch code to collect the return value and to determine if the syscall was a success or failure. We also define a generic is_syscall_success() macro which determines success/failure based on if the value is < -MAX_ERRNO. This works for arches like x86 which do not use a separate mechanism to indicate syscall failure. We make both the is_syscall_success() and regs_return_value() static inlines instead of macros. The reason is because the audit function must take a void* for the regs. (uml calls theirs struct uml_pt_regs instead of just struct pt_regs so audit_syscall_exit can't take a struct pt_regs). Since the audit function takes a void* we need to use static inlines to cast it back to the arch correct structure to dereference it. The other major change is that on some arches, like ia64, MIPS and ppc, we change regs_return_value() to give us the negative value on syscall failure. THE only other user of this macro, kretprobe_example.c, won't notice and it makes the value signed consistently for the audit functions across all archs. In arch/sh/kernel/ptrace_64.c I see that we were using regs[9] in the old audit code as the return value. But the ptrace_64.h code defined the macro regs_return_value() as regs[3]. I have no idea which one is correct, but this patch now uses the regs_return_value() function, so it now uses regs[3]. For powerpc we previously used regs->result but now use the regs_return_value() function which uses regs->gprs[3]. regs->gprs[3] is always positive so the regs_return_value(), much like ia64 makes it negative before calling the audit code when appropriate.

This patch converts SPARC's architecture-specific 'pcibios_set_master()' routine to a non-inlined function. This will allow follow on patches to create a generic 'pcibios_set_master()' function using the '__weak' attribute which can be used by all architectures as a default which, if necessary, can then be over- ridden by architecture-specific code. Converting 'pci_bios_set_master()' to a non-inlined function will allow SPARC's 'pcibios_set_master()' implementation to remain architecture-specific after the generic version is introduced and thus, not change current behavior. No functional change. Signed-off-by: Myron Stowe <> Signed-off-by: Jesse Barnes <>

2011-12-22sparc64: Fix MSIQ HV call ordering in pci_sun4v_msiq_build_irq().David S. Miller
This silently was working for many years and stopped working on Niagara-T3 machines. We need to set the MSIQ to VALID before we can set it's state to IDLE. On Niagara-T3, setting the state to IDLE first was causing HV_EINVAL errors. The hypervisor documentation says, rather ambiguously, that the MSIQ must be "initialized" before one can set the state. I previously understood this to mean merely that a successful setconf() operation has been performed on the MSIQ, which we have done at this point. But it seems to also mean that it has been set VALID too. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2011-12-21cpu: convert 'cpu' and 'machinecheck' sysdev_class to a regular subsystemKay Sievers
This moves the 'cpu sysdev_class' over to a regular 'cpu' subsystem and converts the devices to regular devices. The sysdev drivers are implemented as subsystem interfaces now. After all sysdev classes are ported to regular driver core entities, the sysdev implementation will be entirely removed from the kernel. Userspace relies on events and generic sysfs subsystem infrastructure from sysdev devices, which are made available with this conversion.

2011-12-11nohz: Remove tick_nohz_idle_enter_norcu() / tick_nohz_idle_exit_norcu()Frederic Weisbecker
Those two APIs were provided to optimize the calls of tick_nohz_idle_enter() and rcu_idle_enter() into a single irq disabled section. This way no interrupt happening in-between would needlessly process any RCU job. Now we are talking about an optimization for which benefits have yet to be measured. Let's start simple and completely decouple idle rcu and dyntick idle logics to simplify.

2011-12-11nohz: Allow rcu extended quiescent state handling seperately from tick stopFrederic Weisbecker
It is assumed that rcu won't be used once we switch to tickless mode and until we restart the tick. However this is not always true, as in x86-64 where we dereference the idle notifiers after the tick is stopped. To prepare for fixing this, add two new APIs: tick_nohz_idle_enter_norcu() and tick_nohz_idle_exit_norcu(). If no use of RCU is made in the idle loop between tick_nohz_enter_idle() and tick_nohz_exit_idle() calls, the arch must instead call the new *_norcu() version such that the arch doesn't need to call rcu_idle_enter() and rcu_idle_exit(). Otherwise the arch must call tick_nohz_enter_idle() and tick_nohz_exit_idle() and also call explicitly: - rcu_idle_enter() after its last use of RCU before the CPU is put to sleep. - rcu_idle_exit() before the first use of RCU after the CPU is woken up.

2011-12-11nohz: Separate out irq exit and idle loop dyntick logicFrederic Weisbecker
The tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() function, which tries to delay the next timer tick as long as possible, can be called from two places: - From the idle loop to start the dytick idle mode - From interrupt exit if we have interrupted the dyntick idle mode, so that we reprogram the next tick event in case the irq changed some internal state that requires this action. There are only few minor differences between both that are handled by that function, driven by the ts->inidle cpu variable and the inidle parameter. The whole guarantees that we only update the dyntick mode on irq exit if we actually interrupted the dyntick idle mode, and that we enter in RCU extended quiescent state from idle loop entry only. Split this function into: - tick_nohz_idle_enter(), which sets ts->inidle to 1, enters dynticks idle mode unconditionally if it can, and enters into RCU extended quiescent state. - tick_nohz_irq_exit() which only updates the dynticks idle mode when ts->inidle is set (ie: if tick_nohz_idle_enter() has been called). To maintain symmetry, tick_nohz_restart_sched_tick() has been renamed into tick_nohz_idle_exit(). This simplifies the code and micro-optimize the irq exit path (no need for local_irq_save there). This also prepares for the split between dynticks and rcu extended quiescent state logics. We'll need this split to further fix illegal uses of RCU in extended quiescent states in the idle loop.

2011-11-15sparc: Stash orig_i0 into %g6 instead of %g2David S. Miller
As per the comments added by this commit, %g2 turns out to not be a usable place to save away orig_i0 for syscall restart handling. In fact all of %g2, %g3, %g4, and %g5 are assumed to be saved across a system call by various bits of code in glibc. %g1 can't be used because that holds the syscall number, which would need to be saved and restored for syscall restart handling too, and that would only compound our problems :-) This leaves us with %g6 and %g7 which are for "system use". %g7 is used as the "thread register" by glibc, but %g6 is used as a compiler and assembler temporary scratch register. And in no instance is %g6 used to hold a value across a system call. Therefore %g6 is safe for storing away orig_i0, at least for now. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2011-11-14sparc: Fix handling of orig_i0 wrt. debugging when restarting syscalls.David S. Miller
Although we provide a proper way for a debugger to control whether syscall restart occurs, we run into problems because orig_i0 is not saved and restored properly. Luckily we can solve this problem without having to make debuggers aware of the issue. Across system calls, several registers are considered volatile and can be safely clobbered. Therefore we use the pt_regs save area of one of those registers, %g2, as a place to save and restore orig_i0. Debuggers transparently will do the right thing because they save and restore this register already. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
