git:// Pull media updates from Mauro Carvalho Chehab: "The main set of series of patches for media subsystem, including: - document RC sysfs class - added an API to setup scancode to allow waking up systems using the Remote Controller - add API for SDR devices. Drivers are still on staging - some API improvements for getting EDID data from media inputs/outputs - new DVB frontend driver for drx-j (ATSC) - one driver (it913x/it9137) got removed, in favor of an improvement on another driver (af9035) - added a skeleton V4L2 PCI driver at documentation - added a dual flash driver (lm3646) - added a new IR driver (img-ir) - added an IR scancode decoder for the Sharp protocol - some improvements at the usbtv driver, to allow its core to be reused. - added a new SDR driver (rtl2832u_sdr) - added a new tuner driver (msi001) - several improvements at em28xx driver to fix PM support, device removal and to split the V4L2 specific bits into a separate sub-driver - one driver got converted to videobuf2 (s2255drv) - the e4000 tuner driver now follows an improved binding model - some fixes at V4L2 compat32 code - several fixes and enhancements at videobuf2 code - some cleanups at V4L2 API documentation - usual driver enhancements, new board additions and misc fixups" [ NOTE! This merge effective drops commit 4329b93b283c ("of: Reduce indentation in of_graph_get_next_endpoint"). The of_graph_get_next_endpoint() function was moved and renamed by commit fd9fdb78a9bf ("[media] of: move graph helpers from drivers/media/v4l2-core to drivers/of"). It was originally called v4l2_of_get_next_endpoint() and lived in the file drivers/media/v4l2-core/v4l2-of.c. In that original location, it was then fixed to support empty port nodes by commit b9db140c1e46 ("[media] v4l: of: Support empty port nodes"), and that commit clashes badly with the dropped "Reduce intendation" commit.

2014-02-18Bluetooth: allocate static minor for vhciLucas De Marchi
Commit bfacbb9 (Bluetooth: Use devname:vhci module alias for virtual HCI driver) added the module alias to hci_vhci module so it's possible to create the /dev/vhci node. However creating an alias without specifying the minor doesn't allow us to create the node ahead, triggerring module auto-load when it's first accessed. Starting with depmod from kmod 16 we started to warn if there's a devname alias without specifying the major and minor. Let's do the same done for uhid, kvm, fuse and others, specifying a fixed minor. In systems with systemd as the init the following will happen: on early boot systemd will call "kmod static-nodes" to read /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.devname and then create the nodes. When first accessed these "dead" nodes will trigger the module loading. Signed-off-by: Lucas De Marchi <> Acked-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <> Signed-off-by: Marcel Holtmann <>
2013-12-19misc: Reserve minor for VFIOAlex Williamson
VFIO currently allocates it's own dynamic chardev range, reserving the first minor for the control part of the interface (/dev/vfio/vfio) and the remainder for VFIO groups (/dev/vfio/$GROUP). This works, but it doesn't support auto loading. For instance when libvirt checks for VFIO support it looks for /dev/vfio/vfio, which currently doesn't exist unless the vfio module is loaded. By converting the control device to a misc driver and reserving a static minor, we can enable auto loading. Reserving the minor is a prerequist to that conversion. Minor 196 is unused by anything currently in the kernel. Suggested-by: Paolo Bonzini <> Signed-off-by: Alex Williamson <> Acked-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <>
2013-10-01cuse: add fix minor number to /dev/cuseTom Gundersen
This allows udev (or more recently systemd-tmpfiles) to create /dev/cuse on boot, in the same way as /dev/fuse is currently created, and the corresponding module to be loaded on first access.

2012-05-23Merge branch 'delete-mca' of ↵Linus Torvalds
git:// Pull the MCA deletion branch from Paul Gortmaker: "It was good that we could support MCA machines back in the day, but realistically, nobody is using them anymore. They were mostly limited to 386-sx 16MHz CPU and some 486 class machines and never more than 64MB of RAM. Even the enthusiast hobbyist community seems to have dried up close to ten years ago, based on what you can find searching various websites dedicated to the relatively short lived hardware. So lets remove the support relating to CONFIG_MCA. There is no point carrying this forward, wasting cycles doing routine maintenance on it; wasting allyesconfig build time on validating it, wasting I/O on git grep'ping over it, and so on." Let's see if anybody screams. It generally has compiled, and James Bottomley pointed out that there was a MCA extension from NCR that allowed for up to 4GB of memory and PPro-class machines. So in *theory* there may be users out there. But even James (technically listed as a maintainer) doesn't actually have a system, and while Alan Cox claims to have a machine in his cellar that he offered to anybody who wants to take it off his hands, he didn't argue for keeping MCA support either. So we could bring it back. But somebody had better speak up and talk about how they have actually been using said MCA hardware with modern kernels for us to do that. And David already took the patch to delete all the networking driver code (commit a5e371f61ad3: "drivers/net: delete all code/drivers depending on CONFIG_MCA"). * 'delete-mca' of git:// MCA: delete all remaining traces of microchannel bus support. scsi: delete the MCA specific drivers and driver code serial: delete the MCA specific 8250 support. arm: remove ability to select CONFIG_MCA
2012-05-17MCA: delete all remaining traces of microchannel bus support.Paul Gortmaker
Hardware with MCA bus is limited to 386 and 486 class machines that are now 20+ years old and typically with less than 32MB of memory. A quick search on the internet, and you see that even the MCA hobbyist/enthusiast community has lost interest in the early 2000 era and never really even moved ahead from the 2.4 kernels to the 2.6 series. This deletes anything remaining related to CONFIG_MCA from core kernel code and from the x86 architecture. There is no point in carrying this any further into the future. One complication to watch for is inadvertently scooping up stuff relating to machine check, since there is overlap in the TLA name space (e.g. arch/x86/boot/mca.c).

2010-10-25mmc: make number of mmcblk minors configurableOlof Johansson
The old limit of number of minor numbers per mmcblk device was hardcoded at 8. This isn't enough for some of the more elaborate partitioning schemes, for example those used by Chrome OS. Since there might be a bunch of systems out there with static /dev contents that relies on the old numbering scheme, let's make it a build-time option with the default set to the previous 8. Also provide a boot/modprobe-time parameter to override the config default: mmcblk.perdev_minors.

2010-05-25driver core: add devname module aliases to allow module on-demand auto-loadingKay Sievers
This adds: alias: devname:<name> to some common kernel modules, which will allow the on-demand loading of the kernel module when the device node is accessed. Ideally all these modules would be compiled-in, but distros seems too much in love with their modularization that we need to cover the common cases with this new facility. It will allow us to remove a bunch of pretty useless init scripts and modprobes from init scripts. The static device node aliases will be carried in the module itself. The program depmod will extract this information to a file in the module directory: $ cat /lib/modules/2.6.34-00650-g537b60d-dirty/modules.devname # Device nodes to trigger on-demand module loading. microcode cpu/microcode c10:184 fuse fuse c10:229 ppp_generic ppp c108:0 tun net/tun c10:200 dm_mod mapper/control c10:235 Udev will pick up the depmod created file on startup and create all the static device nodes which the kernel modules specify, so that these modules get automatically loaded when the device node is accessed: $ /sbin/udevd --debug ... static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/cpu/microcode' c10:184 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/fuse' c10:229 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/ppp' c108:0 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/net/tun' c10:200 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/mapper/control' c10:235 udev_rules_apply_static_dev_perms: chmod '/dev/net/tun' 0666 udev_rules_apply_static_dev_perms: chmod '/dev/fuse' 0666 A few device nodes are switched to statically allocated numbers, to allow the static nodes to work. This might also useful for systems which still run a plain static /dev, which is completely unsafe to use with any dynamic minor numbers. Note: The devname aliases must be limited to the *common* and *single*instance* device nodes, like the misc devices, and never be used for conceptually limited systems like the loop devices, which should rather get fixed properly and get a control node for losetup to talk to, instead of creating a random number of device nodes in advance, regardless if they are ever used. This facility is to hide the mess distros are creating with too modualized kernels, and just to hide that these modules are not compiled-in, and not to paper-over broken concepts.

2008-08-13usb: auerswald: remove driver (obsolete)Wolfgang Mües
This patch removes the auerswald USB driver from the linux kernel 2.6.26. This driver was included into the kernel mainly to connect to the ISDN framework. This was done in linux 2.4.x. For 2.6.x, due to the fragile and moving ISDN support, this connection was never realized, and the only use of this driver was for device configuration. In the age of DSL, the demand of ISDN support is getting very low. Meanwhile, with the advent of libusb, an userspace driver was done for the device configuration which works fine for linux and mac. (Thanks to the libusb developers!). The userspace driver is downloadable from the auerswald web site. So this driver is obsolete now and has to be removed.

We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
