Commit 18a3870 (ACPI / PM: Expose lists of device power resources to user space) exposed the lists of ACPI power resources associated with power states of ACPI devices, but it didn't expose the lists of ACPI wakeup power resources, which also is necessary to get the full picture of dependencies between ACPI devices and power resources. For this reason, for every ACPI device node having a list of ACPI wakeup power resources associated with it, expose that list to user space in analogy with commit 18a3870. Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2013-03-21ACPI / LPSS: Add support for exposing LTR registers to user spaceRafael J. Wysocki
Devices on the Intel Lynxpoint Low Power Subsystem (LPSS) have registers providing access to LTR (Latency Tolerance Reporting) functionality that allows software to monitor and possibly influence the aggressiveness of the platform's active-state power management. For each LPSS device, there are two modes of operation related to LTR, the auto mode and the software mode. In the auto mode the LTR is set up by the platform firmware and managed by hardware. Software can only read the LTR register values to monitor the platform's behavior. In the software mode it is possible to use LTR to control the extent to which the platform will use its built-in power management features. This changeset adds support for reading the LPSS devices' LTR registers and exposing their values to user space for monitoring and diagnostics purposes. It re-uses the MMIO mappings created to access the LPSS devices' clock registers for reading the values of the LTR registers and exposes them to user space through sysfs device attributes. Namely, a new atrribute group, lpss_ltr, is created for each LPSS device. It contains three new attributes: ltr_mode, auto_ltr, sw_ltr. The value of the ltr_mode attribute reflects the LTR mode being used at the moment (software vs auto) and the other two contain the actual register values (raw) whose meaning depends on the LTR mode. All of these attributes are read-only. Signed-off-by: Mika Westerberg <mika.westerberg@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>

2013-03-04ACPI / hotplug: Introduce user space interface for hotplug profilesRafael J. Wysocki
Introduce user space interface for manipulating hotplug profiles associated with ACPI scan handlers. The interface consists of sysfs directories under /sys/firmware/acpi/hotplug/, one for each hotplug profile, containing an attribute allowing user space to manipulate the enabled field of the corresponding profile. Namely, switching the enabled attribute from '0' to '1' will cause the common hotplug notify handler to be installed for all ACPI namespace objects representing devices matching the scan handler associated with the given hotplug profile (and analogously for the converse switch). Drivers willing to use the new user space interface should add their ACPI scan handlers with the help of new funtion acpi_scan_add_handler_with_hotplug(). Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2013-02-21bdi: allow block devices to say that they require stable page writesDarrick J. Wong
This patchset ("stable page writes, part 2") makes some key modifications to the original 'stable page writes' patchset. First, it provides creators (devices and filesystems) of a backing_dev_info a flag that declares whether or not it is necessary to ensure that page contents cannot change during writeout. It is no longer assumed that this is true of all devices (which was never true anyway). Second, the flag is used to relaxed the wait_on_page_writeback calls so that wait only occurs if the device needs it. Third, it fixes up the remaining disk-backed filesystems to use this improved conditional-wait logic to provide stable page writes on those filesystems. It is hoped that (for people not using checksumming devices, anyway) this patchset will give back unnecessary performance decreases since the original stable page write patchset went into 3.0. Sorry about not fixing it sooner. Complaints were registered by several people about the long write latencies introduced by the original stable page write patchset. Generally speaking, the kernel ought to allocate as little extra memory as possible to facilitate writeout, but for people who simply cannot wait, a second page stability strategy is (re)introduced: snapshotting page contents. The waiting behavior is still the default strategy; to enable page snapshotting, a superblock flag (MS_SNAP_STABLE) must be set. This flag is used to bandaid^Henable stable page writeback on ext3[1], and is not used anywhere else. Given that there are already a few storage devices and network FSes that have rolled their own page stability wait/page snapshot code, it would be nice to move towards consolidating all of these. It seems possible that iscsi and raid5 may wish to use the new stable page write support to enable zero-copy writeout. Thank you to Jan Kara for helping fix a couple more filesystems. Per Andrew Morton's request, here are the result of using dbench to measure latencies on ext2: 3.8.0-rc3: Operation Count AvgLat MaxLat ---------------------------------------- WriteX 109347 0.028 59.817 ReadX 347180 0.004 3.391 Flush 15514 29.828 287.283 Throughput 57.429 MB/sec 4 clients 4 procs max_latency=287.290 ms 3.8.0-rc3 + patches: WriteX 105556 0.029 4.273 ReadX 335004 0.005 4.112 Flush 14982 30.540 298.634 Throughput 55.4496 MB/sec 4 clients 4 procs max_latency=298.650 ms As you can see, for ext2 the maximum write latency decreases from ~60ms on a laptop hard disk to ~4ms. I'm not sure why the flush latencies increase, though I suspect that being able to dirty pages faster gives the flusher more work to do. On ext4, the average write latency decreases as well as all the maximum latencies: 3.8.0-rc3: WriteX 85624 0.152 33.078 ReadX 272090 0.010 61.210 Flush 12129 36.219 168.260 Throughput 44.8618 MB/sec 4 clients 4 procs max_latency=168.276 ms 3.8.0-rc3 + patches: WriteX 86082 0.141 30.928 ReadX 273358 0.010 36.124 Flush 12214 34.800 165.689 Throughput 44.9941 MB/sec 4 clients 4 procs max_latency=165.722 ms XFS seems to exhibit similar latency improvements as ext2: 3.8.0-rc3: WriteX 125739 0.028 104.343 ReadX 399070 0.005 4.115 Flush 17851 25.004 131.390 Throughput 66.0024 MB/sec 4 clients 4 procs max_latency=131.406 ms 3.8.0-rc3 + patches: WriteX 123529 0.028 6.299 ReadX 392434 0.005 4.287 Flush 17549 25.120 188.687 Throughput 64.9113 MB/sec 4 clients 4 procs max_latency=188.704 ms ...and btrfs, just to round things out, also shows some latency decreases: 3.8.0-rc3: WriteX 67122 0.083 82.355 ReadX 212719 0.005 2.828 Flush 9547 47.561 147.418 Throughput 35.3391 MB/sec 4 clients 4 procs max_latency=147.433 ms 3.8.0-rc3 + patches: WriteX 64898 0.101 71.631 ReadX 206673 0.005 7.123 Flush 9190 47.963 219.034 Throughput 34.0795 MB/sec 4 clients 4 procs max_latency=219.044 ms Before this patchset, all filesystems would block, regardless of whether or not it was necessary. ext3 would wait, but still generate occasional checksum errors. The network filesystems were left to do their own thing, so they'd wait too. After this patchset, all the disk filesystems except ext3 and btrfs will wait only if the hardware requires it. ext3 (if necessary) snapshots pages instead of blocking, and btrfs provides its own bdi so the mm will never wait. Network filesystems haven't been touched, so either they provide their own wait code, or they don't block at all. The blocking behavior is back to what it was before 3.0 if you don't have a disk requiring stable page writes. This patchset has been tested on 3.8.0-rc3 on x64 with ext3, ext4, and xfs. I've spot-checked 3.8.0-rc4 and seem to be getting the same results as -rc3. [1] The alternative fixes to ext3 include fixing the locking order and page bit handling like we did for ext4 (but then why not just use ext4?), or setting PG_writeback so early that ext3 becomes extremely slow. I tried that, but the number of write()s I could initiate dropped by nearly an order of magnitude. That was a bit much even for the author of the stable page series! :) This patch: Creates a per-backing-device flag that tracks whether or not pages must be held immutable during writeout. Eventually it will be used to waive wait_for_page_writeback() if nothing requires stable pages. Signed-off-by: Darrick J.

2013-02-19HID: add ThingM blink(1) USB RGB LED supportVivien Didelot
The ThingM blink(1) is an open source hardware USB RGB LED. It contains an internal EEPROM, allowing to configure up to 12 light patterns. A light pattern is a RGB color plus a fade time. This driver registers a LED class instance with additional sysfs attributes to support basic functions such as setting RGB colors, fade and playing. Other functions are still accessible through the hidraw interface. At this time, the only documentation for the device is the firmware source code from ThingM, plus a few schematics. They are available at: https://github.com/todbot/blink1 This patch is version 3. It updates the name of the source file, the driver and the led sysfs entry, according to comments from Jiri Kosina and Simon Wood.

2013-02-12pstore: Create a convenient mount point for pstoreJosh Boyer

While this method will still work, we can create a persistent mount point in sysfs. This will put pstore on par with things like cgroups and efivarfs.

2013-02-06ima: add policy support for file system uuidDmitry Kasatkin
The IMA policy permits specifying rules to enable or disable measurement/appraisal/audit based on the file system magic number. If, for example, the policy contains an ext4 measurement rule, the rule is enabled for all ext4 partitions. Sometimes it might be necessary to enable measurement/appraisal/audit only for one partition and disable it for another partition of the same type. With the existing IMA policy syntax, this can not be done. This patch provides support for IMA policy rules to specify the file system by its UUID (eg. fsuuid=397449cd-687d-4145-8698-7fed4a3e0363). For partitions not being appraised, it might be a good idea to mount file systems with the 'noexec' option to prevent executing non-verified binaries.

Since ACPI power resources are going to be used more extensively on new hardware platforms, it is necessary to allow user space (powertop in particular) to look at the lists of power resources corresponding to different power states of devices for diagnostics and control purposes. For this reason, for each power state of an ACPI device node using power resources create a special attribute group under the device node's directory in sysfs containing links to sysfs directories representing the power resources in that list. The names of the new attribute groups are "power_resources_<state>", where <state> is the state name i.e. "D0", "D1", "D2", or "D3hot". Signed-off-by: Rafael J.
