2011-07-25devres: fix possible use after freeMaxin B John
devres uses the pointer value as key after it's freed, which is safe but triggers spurious use-after-free warnings on some static analysis tools. Rearrange code to avoid such warnings.

2011-07-07genirq: replace irq_gc_ack() with {set,clr}_bit variants (fwd)Simon Guinot
This fixes a regression introduced by e59347a "arm: orion: Use generic irq chip". Depending on the device, interrupts acknowledgement is done by setting or by clearing a dedicated register. Replace irq_gc_ack() with some {set,clr}_bit variants allows to handle both cases. Note that this patch affects the following SoCs: Davinci, Samsung and Orion. Except for this last, the change is minor: irq_gc_ack() is just renamed into irq_gc_ack_set_bit(). For the Orion SoCs, the edge GPIO interrupts support is currently broken. irq_gc_ack() try to acknowledge a such interrupt by setting the corresponding cause register bit. The Orion GPIO device expect the opposite. To fix this issue, the irq_gc_ack_clr_bit() variant is used. Tested on Network Space v2.

2011-06-10genirq: Prevent potential NULL dereference in irq_set_irq_wake()Jesper Juhl
In kernel/irq/manage.c::irq_set_irq_wake() we call irq_get_desc_buslock() which may return NULL, but the code dereferences the result unconditionally. irq_set_irq_wake() has lots of callers - I checked a few and I couldn't find anything that guarantees that they won't call it with some input that will cause irq_get_desc_buslock() to return NULL, so I think it's a good thing to test and -EINVAL was the most sane error code in this situation that I could think of. Not all callers test the return value of irq_set_irq_wake(), but those that do take != 0 to mean error as far as I can see, so they should be fine. I guess those that don't test actually should, but that's a different issue.

2011-06-03genirq: Ensure we locate the passed IRQ in irq_alloc_descs()Mark Brown
When irq_alloc_descs() is called with no base IRQ specified then it will search for a range of IRQs starting from a specified base address. In the case where an IRQ is specified it still does this search in order to ensure that none of the requested range is already allocated and it still uses the from parameter to specify the base for the search. This means that in the case where a base is specified but from is zero (which is reasonable as any IRQ number is in the range specified by a zero from) the function will get confused and try to allocate the first suitably sized block of free IRQs it finds. Instead use a specified IRQ as the base address for the search, and insist that any from that is specified can support that IRQ.

2011-06-03genirq: Fix descriptor init on non-sparse IRQsLinus Walleij
The genirq changes are initializing descriptors for sparse IRQs quite differently from how non-sparse (stacked?) IRQs are initialized, with the effect that on my platform all IRQs are default-disabled on sparse IRQs and default-enabled if non-sparse IRQs are used, crashing some GPIO driver. Fix this by refactoring the non-sparse IRQs to use the same descriptor init function as the sparse IRQs.

2011-06-03irq: Handle spurios irq detection for threaded irqsSebastian Andrzej Siewior
The detection of spurios interrupts is currently limited to first level handler. In force-threaded mode we never notice if the threaded irq does not feel responsible. This patch catches the return value of the threaded handler and forwards it to the spurious detector. If the primary handler returns only IRQ_WAKE_THREAD then the spourious detector ignores it because it gets called again from the threaded handler.

2011-05-25bitmap, irq: add smp_affinity_list interface to /proc/irqMike Travis
Manually adjusting the smp_affinity for IRQ's becomes unwieldy when the cpu count is large. Setting smp affinity to cpus 256 to 263 would be: echo 000000ff,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000 > smp_affinity instead of: echo 256-263 > smp_affinity_list Think about what it looks like for cpus around say, 4088 to 4095. We already have many alternate "list" interfaces: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/indexY/shared_cpu_list /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/thread_siblings_list /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/core_siblings_list /sys/devices/system/node/nodeX/cpulist /sys/devices/pci***/***/local_cpulist Add a companion interface, smp_affinity_list to use cpu lists instead of cpu maps. This conforms to other companion interfaces where both a map and a list interface exists. This required adding a bitmap_parselist_user() function in a manner similar to the bitmap_parse_user() function.

2011-04-23genirq: Support per-IRQ thread disabling.Paul Mundt
This adds support for disabling threading on a per-IRQ basis via the IRQ status instead of the IRQ flow, which is necessary for interrupts that don't follow the natural IRQ flow channels, such as those that are virtually created. The new APIs added are simply: irq_set_thread() irq_set_nothread() which follow the rest of the IRQ status routines. Chained handlers also have IRQ_NOTHREAD set on them automatically, making the lack of threading explicit rather than implicit. Subsequently, the nothread flag can be viewed through the standard genirq debugging facilities.

2011-03-12genirq: Add chip flag to force mask on suspendThomas Gleixner
On suspend we disable all interrupts in the core code, but this does not mask the interrupt line in the default implementation as we use a lazy disable approach. That means we mark the interrupt disabled, but leave the hardware unmasked. That's an optimization because we avoid the hardware access for the common case where no interrupt happens after we marked it disabled. If an interrupt happens, then the interrupt flow handler masks the line at the hardware level and marks it pending. Suspend makes use of this delayed disable as it "disables" all interrupts when preparing the suspend transition. Right before the system goes into hardware suspend state it checks whether one of the interrupts which is marked as a wakeup interrupt came in after disabling it. Most interrupt chips have a separate register which selects the interrupts which can wake up the system from suspend, so we don't have to mask any on the non wakeup interrupts. But now we have to deal with brilliant designed hardware which lacks such a wakeup configuration facility. For such hardware it's necessary to mask all non wakeup interrupts before going into suspend in order to avoid the wakeup from random interrupts. Rather than working around this in the affected interrupt chip implementations we can solve this elegant in the core code itself. Add a flag IRQCHIP_MASK_ON_SUSPEND which can be set by the irq chip implementation to indicate, that the interrupts which are not selected as wakeup sources must be masked in the suspend path. Mask them in the loop which checks the wakeup interrupts pending flag.

2011-02-26genirq: Provide forced interrupt threadingThomas Gleixner
Add a commandline parameter "threadirqs" which forces all interrupts except those marked IRQF_NO_THREAD to run threaded. That's mostly a debug option to allow retrieving better debug data from crashing interrupt handlers. If "threadirqs" is not enabled on the kernel command line, then there is no impact in the interrupt hotpath. Architecture code needs to select CONFIG_IRQ_FORCED_THREADING after marking the interrupts which cant be threaded IRQF_NO_THREAD. All interrupts which have IRQF_TIMER set are implict marked IRQF_NO_THREAD. Also all PER_CPU interrupts are excluded. Forced threading hard interrupts also forces all soft interrupt handling into thread context. When enabled it might slow down things a bit, but for debugging problems in interrupt code it's a reasonable penalty as it does not immediately crash and burn the machine when an interrupt handler is buggy.

2011-02-25genirq: Prepare the handling of shared oneshot interruptsThomas Gleixner
For level type interrupts we need to track how many threads are on flight to avoid useless interrupt storms when not all thread handlers have finished yet. Keep track of the woken threads and only unmask when there are no more threads in flight. Yes, I'm lazy and using a bitfield. But not only because I'm lazy, the main reason is that it's way simpler than using a refcount. A refcount based solution would need to keep track of various things like crashing the irq thread, spurious interrupts coming in, disables/enables, free_irq() and some more. The bitfield keeps the tracking simple and makes things just work. It's also nicely confined to the thread code pathes and does not require additional checks all over the place.

2011-02-25genirq: Make warning in handle_percpu_event usefulThomas Gleixner
The WARN_ON_ONCE in handle_percpu_event() which emits a warning when an action handler returns with interrupts enabled is not really useful. It does not reveal the interrupt number and handler function which caused it. Make it WARN_ONCE() and add the information.

"def_bool n" without prompt is pointless, these should be just "bool". [ tglx: Adapted to latest changes ] Signed-off-by: Jan Beulich <jbeulich@novell.com> LKML-Reference: <4D5D3309020000780003264A@vpn.id2.novell.com> Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
