git:// Pull power management and ACPI updates from Rafael Wysocki: "These are mostly fixes and cleanups all over, although there are a few items that sort of fall into the new feature category. First off, we have new callbacks for PM domains that should help us to handle some issues related to device initialization in a better way. There also is some consolidation in the unified device properties API area allowing us to use that inferface for accessing data coming from platform initialization code in addition to firmware-provided data.

2014-11-04gpio / ACPI: Add support for _DSD device propertiesMika Westerberg
With release of ACPI 5.1 and _DSD method we can finally name GPIOs (and other things as well) returned by _CRS. Previously we were only able to use integer index to find the corresponding GPIO, which is pretty error prone if the order changes. With _DSD we can now query GPIOs using name instead of an integer index, like the below example shows: // Bluetooth device with reset and shutdown GPIOs Device (BTH) { Name (_HID, ...) Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate () { GpioIo (Exclusive, PullUp, 0, 0, IoRestrictionInputOnly, "\\_SB.GPO0", 0, ResourceConsumer) {15} GpioIo (Exclusive, PullUp, 0, 0, IoRestrictionInputOnly, "\\_SB.GPO0", 0, ResourceConsumer) {27, 31} }) Name (_DSD, Package () { ToUUID("daffd814-6eba-4d8c-8a91-bc9bbf4aa301"), Package () { Package () {"reset-gpio", Package() {^BTH, 1, 1, 0 }}, Package () {"shutdown-gpio", Package() {^BTH, 0, 0, 0 }}, } }) } The format of the supported GPIO property is: Package () { "name", Package () { ref, index, pin, active_low }} ref - The device that has _CRS containing GpioIo()/GpioInt() resources, typically this is the device itself (BTH in our case). index - Index of the GpioIo()/GpioInt() resource in _CRS starting from zero. pin - Pin in the GpioIo()/GpioInt() resource. Typically this is zero. active_low - If 1 the GPIO is marked as active_low. Since ACPI GpioIo() resource does not have field saying whether it is active low or high, the "active_low" argument can be used here. Setting it to 1 marks the GPIO as active low. In our Bluetooth example the "reset-gpio" refers to the second GpioIo() resource, second pin in that resource with the GPIO number of 31. This patch implements necessary support to gpiolib for extracting GPIOs using _DSD device properties.

2014-09-26mfd: Add ACPI supportMika Westerberg
If an MFD device is backed by ACPI namespace, we should allow subdevice drivers to access their corresponding ACPI companion devices through normal means (e.g using ACPI_COMPANION()). This patch adds such support to the MFD core. If the MFD parent device does not specify any ACPI _HID/_CID for the child device, the child device will share the parent ACPI companion device. Otherwise the child device will be assigned with the corresponding ACPI companion, if found in the namespace below the parent.

git:// Pull ACPI and power management updates from Rafael Wysocki: "As far as the number of commits goes, the top spot belongs to ACPI this time with cpufreq in the second position and a handful of PM core, PNP and cpuidle updates. They are fixes and cleanups mostly, as usual, with a couple of new features in the mix. The most visible change is probably that we will create struct acpi_device objects (visible in sysfs) for all devices represented in the ACPI tables regardless of their status and there will be a new sysfs attribute under those objects allowing user space to check that status via _STA. Consequently, ACPI device eject or generally hot-removal will not delete those objects, unless the table containing the corresponding namespace nodes is unloaded, which is extremely rare. Also ACPI container hotplug will be handled quite a bit differently and cpufreq will support CPU boost ("turbo") generically and not only in the acpi-cpufreq driver. Specifics: - ACPI core changes to make it create a struct acpi_device object for every device represented in the ACPI tables during all namespace scans regardless of the current status of that device. In accordance with this, ACPI hotplug operations will not delete those objects, unless the underlying ACPI tables go away. - On top of the above, new sysfs attribute for ACPI device objects allowing user space to check device status by triggering the execution of _STA for its ACPI object. From Srinivas Pandruvada. - ACPI core hotplug changes reducing code duplication, integrating the PCI root hotplug with the core and reworking container hotplug. - ACPI core simplifications making it use ACPI_COMPANION() in the code "glueing" ACPI device objects to "physical" devices. - ACPICA update to upstream version 20131218.

git:// Pull GPIO tree bulk changes from Linus Walleij: "A big set this merge window, as we have much going on in this subsystem. The changes to other subsystems (notably a slew of ARM machines as I am doing away with their custom APIs) have all been ACKed to the extent possible. Major changes this time: - Some core improvements and cleanups to the new GPIO descriptor API. This seems to be working now so we can start the exodus to this API, moving gradually away from the global GPIO numberspace. - Incremental improvements to the ACPI GPIO core, and move the few GPIO ACPI clients we have to the GPIO descriptor API right *now* before we go any further. We actually managed to contain this *before* we started to litter the kernel with yet another hackish global numberspace for the ACPI GPIOs, which is a big win. - The RFkill GPIO driver and all platforms using it have been migrated to use the GPIO descriptors rather than fixed number assignments. Tegra machine has been migrated as part of this. - New drivers for MOXA ART, Xtensa GPIO32 and SMSC SCH311x. Those should be really good examples of how I expect a nice GPIO driver to look these days. - Do away with custom GPIO implementations on a major part of the ARM machines: ks8695, lpc32xx, mv78xx0. Make a first step towards the same in the horribly convoluted Samsung S3C include forest. We expect to continue to clean this up as we move forward. - Flag GPIO lines used for IRQ on adnp, bcm-kona, em, intel-mid and lynxpoint. This makes the GPIOlib core aware that a certain GPIO line is used for IRQs and can then enforce some semantics such as disallowing a GPIO line marked as in use for IRQ to be switched to output mode. - Drop all use of irq_set_chip_and_handler_name(). The name provided in these cases were just unhelpful tags like "mux" or "demux". - Extend the MCP23s08 driver to handle interrupts. - Minor incremental improvements for rcar, lynxpoint, em 74x164 and msm drivers. - Some non-urgent bug fixes here and there, duplicate #includes and that usual kind of cleanups" Fix up broken Kconfig file manually to make this all compile. * tag 'gpio-v3.14-1' of git:// (71 commits) gpio: mcp23s08: fix casting caused build warning gpio: mcp23s08: depend on OF_GPIO gpio: mcp23s08: Add irq functionality for i2c chips ARM: S5P[v210|c100|64x0]: Fix build error gpio: pxa: clamp gpio get value to [0,1] ARM: s3c24xx: explicit dependency on <plat/gpio-cfg.h> ARM: S3C[24|64]xx: move includes back under <mach/> scope Documentation / ACPI: update to GPIO descriptor API gpio / ACPI: get rid of acpi_gpio.h gpio / ACPI: register to ACPI events automatically mmc: sdhci-acpi: convert to use GPIO descriptor API ARM: s3c24xx: fix build error gpio: f7188x: set can_sleep attribute gpio: samsung: Update documentation gpio: samsung: Remove hardware.h inclusion gpio: xtensa: depend on HAVE_XTENSA_GPIO32 gpio: clps711x: Enable driver compilation with COMPILE_TEST gpio: clps711x: Use of_match_ptr() net: rfkill: gpio: convert to descriptor-based GPIO interface leds: s3c24xx: Fix build failure ...

2013-12-17ACPI, APEI, EINJ: Changes to the ACPI/APEI/EINJ debugfs interfaceLuck, Tony
When I added support for ACPI5 I made the assumption that injected processor errors would just need to know the APICID, memory errors just the address and mask, and PCIe errors just the segment/bus/device/function. So I had the code check the type of injection and multiplex the "param1" value appropriately. This was not a good assumption :-( There are injection scenarios where we need to specify more than one of these items. E.g. injecting a cache error we need to specify an APICID of the cpu that owns the cache, and also an address (so that we can trip the error by accessing the address). Add a "flags" file to give the user direct access to specify which items are valid in the ACPI SET_ERROR_TYPE_WITH_ADDRESS structure. Also add new files param3 and param4 to hold all these values. For backwards compatability with old injection scripts we maintain the old behaviour if flags remains set at zero (or is reset to 0). Acked-by: Naveen N. Rao <> Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <>
2013-11-22ACPI / scan: Add acpi_device objects for all device nodes in the namespaceRafael J. Wysocki
Modify the ACPI namespace scanning code to register a struct acpi_device object for every namespace node representing a device, processor and so on, even if the device represented by that namespace node is reported to be not present and not functional by _STA. There are multiple reasons to do that. First of all, it avoids quite a lot of overhead when struct acpi_device objects are deleted every time acpi_bus_trim() is run and then added again by a subsequent acpi_bus_scan() for the same scope, although the namespace objects they correspond to stay in memory all the time (which always is the case on a vast majority of systems). Second, it will allow user space to see that there are namespace nodes representing devices that are not present at the moment and may be added to the system. It will also allow user space to evaluate _SUN for those nodes to check what physical slots the "missing" devices may be put into and it will make sense to add a sysfs attribute for _STA evaluation after this change (that will be useful for thermal management on some systems). Next, it will help to consolidate the ACPI hotplug handling among subsystems by making it possible to store hotplug-related information in struct acpi_device objects in a standard common way. Finally, it will help to avoid a race condition related to the deletion of ACPI namespace nodes. Namely, namespace nodes may be deleted as a result of a table unload triggered by _EJ0 or _DCK. If a hotplug notification for one of those nodes is triggered right before the deletion and it executes a hotplug callback via acpi_hotplug_execute(), the ACPI handle passed to that callback may be stale when the callback actually runs. One way to work around that is to always pass struct acpi_device pointers to hotplug callbacks after doing a get_device() on the objects in question which eliminates the use-after-free possibility (the ACPI handles in those objects are invalidated by acpi_scan_drop_device(), so they will trigger ACPICA errors on attempts to use them).

git:// Pull power management and ACPI updates from Rafael Wysocki: "This time the total number of ACPI commits is slightly greater than the number of cpufreq commits, but Viresh Kumar (who works on cpufreq) remains the most active patch submitter. To me, the most significant change is the addition of offline/online device operations to the driver core (with the Greg's blessing) and the related modifications of the ACPI core hotplug code. Next are the freezer updates from Colin Cross that should make the freezing of tasks a bit less heavy weight. We also have a couple of regression fixes, a number of fixes for issues that have not been identified as regressions, two new drivers and a bunch of cleanups all over. Highlights: - Hotplug changes to support graceful hot-removal failures. It sometimes is necessary to fail device hot-removal operations gracefully if they cannot be carried out completely. For example, if memory from a memory module being hot-removed has been allocated for the kernel's own use and cannot be moved elsewhere, it's desirable to fail the hot-removal operation in a graceful way rather than to crash the kernel, but currenty a success or a kernel crash are the only possible outcomes of an attempted memory hot-removal. Needless to say, that is not a very attractive alternative and it had to be addressed. However, in order to make it work for memory, I first had to make it work for CPUs and for this purpose I needed to modify the ACPI processor driver. It's been split into two parts, a resident one handling the low-level initialization/cleanup and a modular one playing the actual driver's role (but it binds to the CPU system device objects rather than to the ACPI device objects representing processors). That's been sort of like a live brain surgery on a patient who's riding a bike. So this is a little scary, but since we found and fixed a couple of regressions it caused to happen during the early linux-next testing (a month ago), nobody has complained. As a bonus we remove some duplicated ACPI hotplug code, because the ACPI-based CPU hotplug is now going to use the common ACPI hotplug code. - Lighter weight freezing of tasks. These changes from Colin Cross and Mandeep Singh Baines are targeted at making the freezing of tasks a bit less heavy weight operation. They reduce the number of tasks woken up every time during the freezing, by using the observation that the freezer simply doesn't need to wake up some of them and wait for them all to call refrigerator(). The time needed for the freezer to decide to report a failure is reduced too. Also reintroduced is the check causing a lockdep warining to trigger when try_to_freeze() is called with locks held (which is generally unsafe and shouldn't happen). - cpufreq updates First off, a commit from Srivatsa S Bhat fixes a resume regression introduced during the 3.10 cycle causing some cpufreq sysfs attributes to return wrong values to user space after resume. The fix is kind of fresh, but also it's pretty obvious once Srivatsa has identified the root cause. Second, we have a new freqdomain_cpus sysfs attribute for the acpi-cpufreq driver to provide information previously available via related_cpus. From Lan Tianyu. Finally, we fix a number of issues, mostly related to the CPUFREQ_POSTCHANGE notifier and cpufreq Kconfig options and clean up some code. The majority of changes from Viresh Kumar with bits from Jacob Shin, Heiko Stübner, Xiaoguang Chen, Ezequiel Garcia, Arnd Bergmann, and Tang Yuantian. - ACPICA update A usual bunch of updates from the ACPICA upstream. During the 3.4 cycle we introduced support for ACPI 5 extended sleep registers, but they are only supposed to be used if the HW-reduced mode bit is set in the FADT flags and the code attempted to use them without checking that bit. That caused suspend/resume regressions to happen on some systems. Fix from Lv Zheng causes those registers to be used only if the HW-reduced mode bit is set. Apart from this some other ACPICA bugs are fixed and code cleanups are made by Bob Moore, Tomasz Nowicki, Lv Zheng, Chao Guan, and Zhang Rui. - cpuidle updates New driver for Xilinx Zynq processors is added by Michal Simek. Multidriver support simplification, addition of some missing kerneldoc comments and Kconfig-related fixes come from Daniel Lezcano. - ACPI power management updates Changes to make suspend/resume work correctly in Xen guests from Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk, sparse warning fix from Fengguang Wu and cleanups and fixes of the ACPI device power state selection routine. - ACPI documentation updates Some previously missing pieces of ACPI documentation are added by Lv Zheng and Aaron Lu (hopefully, that will help people to uderstand how the ACPI subsystem works) and one outdated doc is updated by Hanjun Guo. - Assorted ACPI updates We finally nailed down the IA-64 issue that was the reason for reverting commit 9f29ab11ddbf ("ACPI / scan: do not match drivers against objects having scan handlers"), so we can fix it and move the ACPI scan handler check added to the ACPI video driver back to the core. A mechanism for adding CMOS RTC address space handlers is introduced by Lan Tianyu to allow some EC-related breakage to be fixed on some systems. A spec-compliant implementation of acpi_os_get_timer() is added by Mika Westerberg. The evaluation of _STA is added to do_acpi_find_child() to avoid situations in which a pointer to a disabled device object is returned instead of an enabled one with the same _ADR value. From Jeff Wu. Intel BayTrail PCH (Platform Controller Hub) support is added to the ACPI driver for Intel Low-Power Subsystems (LPSS) and that driver is modified to work around a couple of known BIOS issues. Changes from Mika Westerberg and Heikki Krogerus. The EC driver is fixed by Vasiliy Kulikov to use get_user() and put_user() instead of dereferencing user space pointers blindly. Code cleanups are made by Bjorn Helgaas, Nicholas Mazzuca and Toshi Kani. - Assorted power management updates The "runtime idle" helper routine is changed to take the return values of the callbacks executed by it into account and to call rpm_suspend() if they return 0, which allows us to reduce the overall code bloat a bit (by dropping some code that's not necessary any more after that modification). The runtime PM documentation is updated by Alan Stern (to reflect the "runtime idle" behavior change). New trace points for PM QoS are added by Sahara (<>).

2013-04-15dma: acpi-dma: introduce ACPI DMA helpersAndy Shevchenko
There is a new generic API to get a DMA channel for a slave device (commit 9a6cecc8 "dmaengine: add helper function to request a slave DMA channel"). In similar fashion to the DT case (commit aa3da644 "of: Add generic device tree DMA helpers") we introduce helpers to the DMAC drivers which are enumerated by ACPI. The proposed extension provides the following API calls: acpi_dma_controller_register(), devm_acpi_dma_controller_register() acpi_dma_controller_free(), devm_acpi_dma_controller_free() acpi_dma_simple_xlate() acpi_dma_request_slave_chan_by_index() acpi_dma_request_slave_chan_by_name() The first two should be used, for example, at probe() and remove() of the corresponding DMAC driver. At the register stage the DMAC driver supplies a custom xlate() function to translate a struct dma_spec into struct dma_chan. Accordingly to the ACPI Fixed DMA resource specification the only two pieces of information the slave device has are the channel id and the request line (slave id). Those two are represented by struct dma_spec. The acpi_dma_request_slave_chan_by_index() provides access to the specifix FixedDMA resource by its index. Whereas dma_request_slave_channel() takes a string parameter to identify the DMA resources required by the slave device. To make a slave device driver work with both DeviceTree and ACPI enumeration a simple convention is established: "tx" corresponds to the index 0 and "rx" to the index 1. In case of robust configuration the slave device driver unfortunately needs to call acpi_dma_request_slave_chan_by_index() directly. Additionally the patch provides "managed" version of the register/free pair i.e. devm_acpi_dma_controller_register() and devm_acpi_dma_controller_free(). Usually, the driver uses only devm_acpi_dma_controller_register(). Signed-off-by: Andy Shevchenko <> Reviewed-by: Mika Westerberg <> Acked-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <> Signed-off-by: Vinod Koul <>
2013-04-12gpiolib-acpi: introduce acpi_get_gpio_by_index() helperMika Westerberg
Instead of open-coding ACPI GPIO resource lookup in each driver, we provide a helper function analogous to Device Tree version that allows drivers to specify which GPIO resource they are interested (using an index to the GPIO resources). The function then finds out the correct resource, translates the ACPI GPIO number to the corresponding Linux GPIO number and returns that. Signed-off-by: Mika Westerberg <> Acked-by: Rafael J.

2013-01-30ACPI / scan: Introduce struct acpi_scan_handlerRafael J. Wysocki
Introduce struct acpi_scan_handler for representing objects that will do configuration tasks depending on ACPI device nodes' hardware IDs (HIDs). Currently, those tasks are done either directly by the ACPI namespace scanning code or by ACPI device drivers designed specifically for this purpose. None of the above is desirable, however, because doing that directly in the namespace scanning code makes that code overly complicated and difficult to follow and doing that in "special" device drivers leads to a great deal of confusion about their role and to confusing interactions with the driver core (for example, sysfs directories are created for those drivers, but they are completely unnecessary and only increase the kernel's memory footprint in vain).

2010-12-13ACPI, APEI, Add APEI generic error status printing supportHuang Ying
In APEI, Hardware error information reported by firmware to Linux kernel is in the data structure of APEI generic error status (struct acpi_hes_generic_status). While now printk is used by Linux kernel to report hardware error information to user space. So, this patch adds printing support for the data structure, so that the corresponding hardware error information can be reported to user space via printk. PCIe AER information printing is not implemented yet. Will refactor the original PCIe AER information printing code to avoid code duplicating.

2008-03-15ACPI: Remove ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_INITRD optionLinus Torvalds
This essentially reverts commit 71fc47a9adf8ee89e5c96a47222915c5485ac437 ("ACPI: basic initramfs DSDT override support"), because the code simply isn't ready. It did ugly things to the init sequence to populate the rootfs image early, but that just ended up showing other problems with the whole approach. The fact is, the VFS layer simply isn't initialized this early, and the relevant ACPI code should either run much later, or this shouldn't be done at all. For 2.6.25, we'll just pick the latter option. We can revisit this concept later if necessary.
