2007-05-08Documentation/i386/boot.txt: update and correctH. Peter Anvin
In the process of rewriting the x86 setup code, I found a number of inaccuracies and outdated recommendations in the boot protocol documentation. Revamp to make it more up to date. In particular, the common use of the heap actually requires (slightly) more than 4K of heap plus stack, which is the recommended amount in the document; currently the code compensates by being smaller than specified, but we can't assume that will be true forever. Thus, recommend that if we have a modern bzImage kernel, that the bootloader maximizes the available space. Signed-off-by: H.

2007-05-08x86, serial: convert legacy COM ports to platform devicesBjorn Helgaas
Make x86 COM ports into platform devices and don't probe for them if we have PNP. This prevents double discovery, where a device was found both by the legacy probe and by 8250_pnp, e.g., serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A 00:02: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A This also means IRDA devices without a UART PNP ID will no longer be claimed by the serial driver, which might require changes in IRDA drivers and administration. In addition to this patch, you may need to configure a setserial init script, e.g., /etc/init.d/setserial, so it doesn't poke legacy UART stuff back in. On Debian, "dpkg-reconfigure setserial" with the "kernel" option does this. To force the old legacy probe behavior even when we have PNPBIOS or ACPI, load the new legacy_serial module (or build 8250 static) with the "legacy_serial.force" option.

2007-05-08smsc-ircc2: add PNP supportBjorn Helgaas
Claim devices using PNP, unless the user explicitly specified device addresses. This can be disabled with the "smsc-ircc2.nopnp" option. This removes the need for probing legacy addresses and helps untangle IR devices from serial8250 devices. Sometimes the SMC device is at a legacy COM port address but does not use the legacy COM IRQ. In this case, claiming the device using PNP rather than 8250 legacy probe means we can automatically use the correct IRQ rather than forcing the user to use "setserial" to set the IRQ manually. If the PNP claim doesn't work, make sure you don't have a setserial init script, e.g., /etc/init.d/setserial, configured to poke in legacy COM port resources for the IRDA device. That causes the serial driver to claim resources needed by this driver.

2007-05-08Kprobes: The ON/OFF knob thru debugfsAnanth N Mavinakayanahalli
This patch provides a debugfs knob to turn kprobes on/off o A new file /debug/kprobes/enabled indicates if kprobes is enabled or not (default enabled) o Echoing 0 to this file will disarm all installed probes o Any new probe registration when disabled will register the probe but not arm it. A message will be printed out in such a case. o When a value 1 is echoed to the file, all probes (including ones registered in the intervening period) will be enabled o Unregistration will happen irrespective of whether probes are globally enabled or not. o Update Documentation/kprobes.txt to reflect these changes. While there also update the doc to make it current. We are also looking at providing sysrq key support to tie to the disabling feature provided by this patch.

2007-05-08rtc: remove "RTC_ALM_SET mode" bugsDavid Brownell
This fixes a common glitch in how RTC drivers handle two "set alarm" modes, by getting rid of the surprising/hidden one that was rarely implemented correctly (and which could expose nonportable hardware-specific behavior). The glitch comes from the /dev/rtcX logic implementing the legacy RTC_ALM_SET (limited to 24 hours, needing RTC_AIE_ON) ioctl on top of the RTC driver call providing access to the newer RTC_WKALM_SET (without those limitations) by initializing the day/month/year fields to be invalid ... that second mode. Now, since few RTC drivers check those fields, and most hardware misbehaves when faced with invalid date fields, many RTC drivers will set bogus alarm times on those RTC_ALM_SET code paths. (Several in-tree drivers have that issue, and I also noticed it with code reviews on several new RTC drivers.) This patch ensures that RTC drivers never see such invalid alarm fields, by moving some logic out of rtc-omap into the RTC_ALM_SET code and adding an explicit check (which will prevent the issue on other code paths).

2007-05-08VFS: delay the dentry name generation on sockets and pipesEric Dumazet
1) Introduces a new method in 'struct dentry_operations'. This method called d_dname() might be called from d_path() to build a pathname for special filesystems. It is called without locks. Future patches (if we succeed in having one common dentry for all pipes/sockets) may need to change prototype of this method, but we now use : char *d_dname(struct dentry *dentry, char *buffer, int buflen); 2) Adds a dynamic_dname() helper function that eases d_dname() implementations 3) Defines d_dname method for sockets : No more sprintf() at socket creation. This is delayed up to the moment someone does an access to /proc/pid/fd/... 4) Defines d_dname method for pipes : No more sprintf() at pipe creation. This is delayed up to the moment someone does an access to /proc/pid/fd/...

2007-05-08proc: maps protectionKees Cook
The /proc/pid/ "maps", "smaps", and "numa_maps" files contain sensitive information about the memory location and usage of processes. Issues: - maps should not be world-readable, especially if programs expect any kind of ASLR protection from local attackers. - maps cannot just be 0400 because "-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -O2" makes glibc check the maps when %n is in a *printf call, and a setuid(getuid()) process wouldn't be able to read its own maps file. (For reference see http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/1/22/150) - a system-wide toggle is needed to allow prior behavior in the case of non-root applications that depend on access to the maps contents. This change implements a check using "ptrace_may_attach" before allowing access to read the maps contents. To control this protection, the new knob /proc/sys/kernel/maps_protect has been added, with corresponding updates to the procfs documentation.

2007-05-07blackfin architectureBryan Wu
This adds support for the Analog Devices Blackfin processor architecture, and currently supports the BF533, BF532, BF531, BF537, BF536, BF534, and BF561 (Dual Core) devices, with a variety of development platforms including those avaliable from Analog Devices (BF533-EZKit, BF533-STAMP, BF537-STAMP, BF561-EZKIT), and Bluetechnix! Tinyboards. The Blackfin architecture was jointly developed by Intel and Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) as the Micro Signal Architecture (MSA) core and introduced it in December of 2000. Since then ADI has put this core into its Blackfin processor family of devices. The Blackfin core has the advantages of a clean, orthogonal,RISC-like microprocessor instruction set. It combines a dual-MAC (Multiply/Accumulate), state-of-the-art signal processing engine and single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) multimedia capabilities into a single instruction-set architecture. The Blackfin architecture, including the instruction set, is described by the ADSP-BF53x/BF56x Blackfin Processor Programming Reference http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/download/frsrelease/29/2549/Blackfin_PRM.pdf The Blackfin processor is already supported by major releases of gcc, and there are binary and source rpms/tarballs for many architectures at: http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/project/toolchain/frs There is complete documentation, including "getting started" guides available at: http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/ which provides links to the sources and patches you will need in order to set up a cross-compiling environment for bfin-linux-uclibc This patch, as well as the other patches (toolchain, distribution, uClibc) are actively supported by Analog Devices Inc, at: http://blackfin.uclinux.org/ We have tested this on LTP, and our test plan (including pass/fails) can be found at: http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=testing_the_linux_kernel [m.kozlowski@tuxland.pl: balance parenthesis in blackfin header files] Signed-off-by: Bryan Wu <bryan.wu@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Mariusz Kozlowski <m.kozlowski@tuxland.pl> Signed-off-by: Aubrey Li <aubrey.li@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Jie Zhang <jie.zhang@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-05-07mm: fix handling of panic_on_oom when cpusets are in useYasunori Goto
The current panic_on_oom may not work if there is a process using cpusets/mempolicy, because other nodes' memory may remain. But some people want failover by panic ASAP even if they are used. This patch makes new setting for its request. This is tested on my ia64 box which has 3 nodes.

2007-05-07smaps: add clear_refs file to clear referenceDavid Rientjes
Adds /proc/pid/clear_refs. When any non-zero number is written to this file, pte_mkold() and ClearPageReferenced() is called for each pte and its corresponding page, respectively, in that task's VMAs. This file is only writable by the user who owns the task. It is now possible to measure _approximately_ how much memory a task is using by clearing the reference bits with echo 1 > /proc/pid/clear_refs and checking the reference count for each VMA from the /proc/pid/smaps output at a measured time interval. For example, to observe the approximate change in memory footprint for a task, write a script that clears the references (echo 1 > /proc/pid/clear_refs), sleeps, and then greps for Pgs_Referenced and extracts the size in kB. Add the sizes for each VMA together for the total referenced footprint. Moments later, repeat the process and observe the difference. For example, using an efficient Mozilla: accumulated time referenced memory ---------------- ----------------- 0 s 408 kB 1 s 408 kB 2 s 556 kB 3 s 1028 kB 4 s 872 kB 5 s 1956 kB 6 s 416 kB 7 s 1560 kB 8 s 2336 kB 9 s 1044 kB 10 s 416 kB This is a valuable tool to get an approximate measurement of the memory footprint for a task.

2007-05-07add new_id to PCMCIA driversBernhard Walle
PCI drivers have the new_id file in sysfs which allows new IDs to be added at runtime. The advantage is to avoid re-compilation of a driver that works for a new device, but it's ID table doesn't contain the new device. This mechanism is only meant for testing, after the driver has been tested successfully, the ID should be added in source code so that new revisions of the kernel automatically detect the device. The implementation follows the PCI implementation. The interface is documented in Documentation/pcmcia/driver.txt. Computations should be done in userspace, so the sysfs string contains the raw structure members for matching.
