2011-11-16UBUNTU: SAUCE: S3 early resume debug via keyboard LEDsColin Ian King
Add support to debug S3 early resume by flashing the keyboard LEDs three times in the realmode path. This is useful to allow one to determine if S3 hangs occur in the BIOS or during the early resume phase. Add kernel parameter acpi_sleep=s3_leds to enable the s3 debugging option. This can also be enabled by writing 8 to /proc/sys/kernel/acpi_video_flags.

2011-11-16UBUNTU: ubuntu: Yama - add ptrace relationship tracking interfaceKees Cook
Some application suites have external crash handlers that depend on being able to use ptrace to generate crash reports (KDE, Wine, Chromium, Firefox, etc). Since the inferior process has a defined application-specific relationship with the debugger, allow the inferior to express that relationship by declaring who can call PTRACE_ATTACH against it. The inferior can use prctl() with PR_SET_PTRACER to allow a specific PID and its descendants to perform the ptrace instead of only a direct ancestor.

2011-11-11PM / Runtime: Automatically retry failed autosuspendsAlan Stern
commit 886486b792e4f6f96d4fbe8ec5bf20811cab7d6a upstream. Originally, the runtime PM core would send an idle notification whenever a suspend attempt failed. The idle callback routine could then schedule a delayed suspend for some time later. However this behavior was changed by commit f71648d73c1650b8b4aceb3856bebbde6daa3b86 (PM / Runtime: Remove idle notification after failing suspend). No notifications were sent, and there was no clear mechanism to retry failed suspends. This caused problems for the usbhid driver, because it fails autosuspend attempts as long as a key is being held down. Therefore this patch (as1492) adds a mechanism for retrying failed autosuspends. If the callback routine updates the last_busy field so that the next autosuspend expiration time is in the future, the autosuspend will automatically be rescheduled.

2011-11-11hwspinlock/core: use a mutex to protect the radix treeJuan Gutierrez
commit 93b465c2e186d96fb90012ba0f9372eb9952e732 upstream. Since we're using non-atomic radix tree allocations, we should be protecting the tree using a mutex and not a spinlock. Non-atomic allocations and process context locking is good enough, as the tree is manipulated only when locks are registered/ unregistered/requested/freed. The locks themselves are still protected by spinlocks of course, and mutexes are not involved in the locking/unlocking paths.

2011-11-11ARM: 7023/1: L2x0: Add interrupts property to OF bindingMark Rutland
Following the discussion here: http://lists.ozlabs.org/pipermail/devicetree-discuss/2011-August/007301.html The L2x0 L2 Cache Controllers support a combined interrupt line which can be used for several events (e.g. read/write/parity errors on tag/data RAM, event counter increment/overflow). Unfortunately the OF binding added in c519ecf2 ("ARM: 7009/1: l2x0: Add OF based initialization") does not represent the interrupt. This patch adds an "interrupts" property to the L2x0 OF binding, representing the combined interrupt line.

2011-09-21hwmon: (coretemp) Don't use threshold registers for tempX_maxGuenter Roeck
With commit c814a4c7c4aad795835583344353963a0a673eb0, the meaning of tempX_max was changed. It no longer returns the value of bits 8:15 of MSR_IA32_TEMPERATURE_TARGET, but instead returns the value of CPU threshold register T1. tempX_max_hyst was added to reflect the value of temperature threshold register T0. As it turns out, T0 and T1 are used on some systems, presumably by the BIOS. Also, T0 and T1 don't have a well defined meaning. The thresholds may be used as upper or lower limits, and it is not guaranteed that T0 <= T1. Thus, the new attribute mapping does not reflect the actual usage of the threshold registers. Also, register contents are changed during runtime by an entity other than the hwmon driver, meaning the values cached by the driver do not reflect actual register contents. Revert most of c814a4c7c4aad795835583344353963a0a673eb0 to address the problem. Support for T0 and T1 will be added back in with a separate commit, using new attribute names.

2011-09-14memcg: Revert "memcg: add memory.vmscan_stat"Johannes Weiner
Revert the post-3.0 commit 82f9d486e59f5 ("memcg: add memory.vmscan_stat"). The implementation of per-memcg reclaim statistics violates how memcg hierarchies usually behave: hierarchically. The reclaim statistics are accounted to child memcgs and the parent hitting the limit, but not to hierarchy levels in between. Usually, hierarchical statistics are perfectly recursive, with each level representing the sum of itself and all its children. Since this exports statistics to userspace, this may lead to confusion and problems with changing things after the release, so revert it now, we can try again later.
