2010-08-14hwmon: (ltc4245) Expose all GPIO pins as analog voltagesIra W. Snyder
Add support for exposing all GPIO pins as analog voltages. Though this is not an ideal use of the chip, some hardware engineers may decide that the LTC4245 meets their design requirements when studying the datasheet. The GPIO pins are sampled in round-robin fashion, meaning that a slow reader will see stale data. A userspace application can detect this, because it will get -EAGAIN when reading from a sysfs file which contains stale data. Users can choose to use this feature on a per-chip basis by using either platform data or the OF device tree (where applicable). Signed-off-by: Ira W. Snyder <> Signed-off-by: Jean Delvare <>

2010-08-12mmc: add erase, secure erase, trim and secure trim operationsAdrian Hunter
SD/MMC cards tend to support an erase operation. In addition, eMMC v4.4 cards can support secure erase, trim and secure trim operations that are all variants of the basic erase command. SD/MMC device attributes "erase_size" and "preferred_erase_size" have been added. "erase_size" is the minimum size, in bytes, of an erase operation. For MMC, "erase_size" is the erase group size reported by the card. Note that "erase_size" does not apply to trim or secure trim operations where the minimum size is always one 512 byte sector. For SD, "erase_size" is 512 if the card is block-addressed, 0 otherwise. SD/MMC cards can erase an arbitrarily large area up to and including the whole card. When erasing a large area it may be desirable to do it in smaller chunks for three reasons: 1. A single erase command will make all other I/O on the card wait. This is not a problem if the whole card is being erased, but erasing one partition will make I/O for another partition on the same card wait for the duration of the erase - which could be a several minutes. 2. To be able to inform the user of erase progress. 3. The erase timeout becomes too large to be very useful. Because the erase timeout contains a margin which is multiplied by the size of the erase area, the value can end up being several minutes for large areas. "erase_size" is not the most efficient unit to erase (especially for SD where it is just one sector), hence "preferred_erase_size" provides a good chunk size for erasing large areas. For MMC, "preferred_erase_size" is the high-capacity erase size if a card specifies one, otherwise it is based on the capacity of the card. For SD, "preferred_erase_size" is the allocation unit size specified by the card. "preferred_erase_size" is in bytes.

2010-08-11panic: keep blinking in spite of long spin timer modeTAMUKI Shoichi
To keep panic_timeout accuracy when running under a hypervisor, the current implementation only spins on long time (1 second) calls to mdelay. That brings a good effect, but the problem is the keyboard LEDs don't blink at all on that situation. This patch changes to call to panic_blink_enter() between every mdelay and keeps blinking in spite of long spin timer mode. The time to call to mdelay is now 100ms. Even this change will keep panic_timeout accuracy enough when running under a hypervisor.

2010-08-11dma-mapping: remove dma_is_consistent APIFUJITA Tomonori
Architectures implement dma_is_consistent() in different ways (some misinterpret the definition of API in DMA-API.txt). So it hasn't been so useful for drivers. We have only one user of the API in tree. Unlikely out-of-tree drivers use the API. Even if we fix dma_is_consistent() in some architectures, it doesn't look useful at all. It was invented long ago for some old systems that can't allocate coherent memory at all. It's better to export only APIs that are definitely necessary for drivers. Let's remove this API.

MS Windows mounts removable storage in "Removal optimized mode" by default. All the writes to the media are synchronous which is achieved by setting FUA (Force Unit Access) bit in SCSI WRITE(10,12) commands. This prevents I/O requests aggregation in block layer dramatically decreasing performance. This patch brings an option to accept or ignore mentioned bit a) via specifying module parameter "nofua", or b) through sysfs entry /sys/devices/platform/_UDC_/gadget/gadget-lunX/nofua (_UDC_ is the name of the USB Device Controller driver) Patch is based on the work that was done by Denis Karpov for Maemo 5 platform.

2010-08-09drivers/misc: support for the pressure sensor BMP085 from Bosch SensortecChristoph Mair
This driver adds support for the BMP085 digital pressure sensor from Bosch Sensortec. It exposes a sysfs api to userspace where pressure and temperature measurement results can be read from the pressure0_input and temp0_input file. The chip is able to calculate the average of up to eight samples to increase the accuracy. This feature can be controlled by writing to the oversampling file. The BMP085 digital pressure sensor can measure ambient air pressure and temperature. Both values can be obtained from sysfs files. The pressure is measured by reading from pressure0_input. Valid values range from 30000 to 110000 pascal with a resolution of 1 pascal (=0.01 millibar). temp0_input holds the current temperature in degree celsius, multiplied by 10. This results in a resolution of a tenth degree celsius. Values range from -400 to 850. To increase the accuracy, this chip can calculate the average of 1, 2, 4 or 8 samples. This behavior is controlled through the oversampling sysfs file. Two to the power of the value written to that file specifies how many samples will be used. Valid values: 0..3.

2010-08-09oom: badness heuristic rewriteDavid Rientjes
This a complete rewrite of the oom killer's badness() heuristic which is used to determine which task to kill in oom conditions. The goal is to make it as simple and predictable as possible so the results are better understood and we end up killing the task which will lead to the most memory freeing while still respecting the fine-tuning from userspace. Instead of basing the heuristic on mm->total_vm for each task, the task's rss and swap space is used instead. This is a better indication of the amount of memory that will be freeable if the oom killed task is chosen and subsequently exits. This helps specifically in cases where KDE or GNOME is chosen for oom kill on desktop systems instead of a memory hogging task. The baseline for the heuristic is a proportion of memory that each task is currently using in memory plus swap compared to the amount of "allowable" memory. "Allowable," in this sense, means the system-wide resources for unconstrained oom conditions, the set of mempolicy nodes, the mems attached to current's cpuset, or a memory controller's limit. The proportion is given on a scale of 0 (never kill) to 1000 (always kill), roughly meaning that if a task has a badness() score of 500 that the task consumes approximately 50% of allowable memory resident in RAM or in swap space. The proportion is always relative to the amount of "allowable" memory and not the total amount of RAM systemwide so that mempolicies and cpusets may operate in isolation; they shall not need to know the true size of the machine on which they are running if they are bound to a specific set of nodes or mems, respectively. Root tasks are given 3% extra memory just like __vm_enough_memory() provides in LSMs. In the event of two tasks consuming similar amounts of memory, it is generally better to save root's task. Because of the change in the badness() heuristic's baseline, it is also necessary to introduce a new user interface to tune it. It's not possible to redefine the meaning of /proc/pid/oom_adj with a new scale since the ABI cannot be changed for backward compatability. Instead, a new tunable, /proc/pid/oom_score_adj, is added that ranges from -1000 to +1000. It may be used to polarize the heuristic such that certain tasks are never considered for oom kill while others may always be considered. The value is added directly into the badness() score so a value of -500, for example, means to discount 50% of its memory consumption in comparison to other tasks either on the system, bound to the mempolicy, in the cpuset, or sharing the same memory controller. /proc/pid/oom_adj is changed so that its meaning is rescaled into the units used by /proc/pid/oom_score_adj, and vice versa. Changing one of these per-task tunables will rescale the value of the other to an equivalent meaning. Although /proc/pid/oom_adj was originally defined as a bitshift on the badness score, it now shares the same linear growth as /proc/pid/oom_score_adj but with different granularity. This is required so the ABI is not broken with userspace applications and allows oom_adj to be deprecated for future removal.

2010-08-09vmscan: tracing: add a postprocessing script for reclaim-related ftrace eventsMel Gorman
Add a simple post-processing script for the reclaim-related trace events. It can be used to give an indication of how much traffic there is on the LRU lists and how severe latencies due to reclaim are. Example output looks like the following Reclaim latencies expressed as order-latency_in_ms uname-3942 9-200.179000000004 9-98.7900000000373 9-99.8330000001006 kswapd0-311 0-662.097999999998
