2013-01-18tty: Added a CONFIG_TTY option to allow removal of TTYJoe Millenbach
The option allows you to remove TTY and compile without errors. This saves space on systems that won't support TTY interfaces anyway. bloat-o-meter output is below. The bulk of this patch consists of Kconfig changes adding "depends on TTY" to various serial devices and similar drivers that require the TTY layer. Ideally, these dependencies would occur on a common intermediate symbol such as SERIO, but most drivers "select SERIO" rather than "depends on SERIO", and "select" does not respect dependencies. bloat-o-meter output comparing our previous minimal to new minimal by removing TTY. The list is filtered to not show removed entries with awk '$3 != "-"' as the list was very long. add/remove: 0/226 grow/shrink: 2/14 up/down: 6/-35356 (-35350) function old new delta chr_dev_init 166 170 +4 allow_signal 80 82 +2 static.__warned 143 142 -1 disallow_signal 63 62 -1 __set_special_pids 95 94 -1 unregister_console 126 121 -5 start_kernel 546 541 -5 register_console 593 588 -5 copy_from_user 45 40 -5 sys_setsid 128 120 -8 sys_vhangup 32 19 -13 do_exit 1543 1526 -17 bitmap_zero 60 40 -20 arch_local_irq_save 137 117 -20 release_task 674 652 -22 static.spin_unlock_irqrestore 308 260 -48 Signed-off-by: Joe Millenbach <jmillenbach@gmail.com> Reviewed-by: Jamey Sharp <jamey@minilop.net> Reviewed-by: Josh Triplett <josh@joshtriplett.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

2012-05-16ramoops: Move to fs/pstore/ram.cAnton Vorontsov
Since ramoops was converted to pstore, it has nothing to do with character devices nowadays. Instead, today it is just a RAM backend for pstore. The patch just moves things around. There are a few changes were needed because of the move: 1. Kconfig and Makefiles fixups, of course. 2. In pstore/ram.c we have to play a bit with MODULE_PARAM_PREFIX, this is needed to keep user experience the same as with ramoops driver (i.e. so that ramoops.foo kernel command line arguments would still work).

2012-05-16ramoops: use pstore interfaceKees Cook
Instead of using /dev/mem directly and forcing userspace to know (or extract) where the platform has defined persistent memory, how many slots it has, the sizes, etc, use the common pstore infrastructure to handle Oops gathering and extraction. This presents a much easier to use filesystem-based view to the memory region. This also means that any other tools that are written to understand pstore will automatically be able to process ramoops too.

2011-06-10arch/tile: add hypervisor-based character driver for SPI flash ROMChris Metcalf
The first version of this patch proposed an arch/tile/drivers/ directory, but the consensus was that this was probably a poor choice for a place to group Tilera-specific drivers, and that in any case grouping by platform was discouraged, and grouping by function was preferred. This version of the patch addresses various issues raised in the community, primarily the absence of sysfs integration. The sysfs integration now handles passing information on sector size, page size, and total partition size to userspace as well. In addition, we now use a single "struct cdev" to manage all the partition minor devices, and dynamically discover the correct number of partitions from the hypervisor rather than using a module_param with a default value. This driver has no particular "peer" drivers it can be grouped with. It is sort of like an MTD driver for SPI ROM, but it doesn't group well with the other MTD devices since it relies on hypervisor virtualization to handle many of the irritating aspects of flash ROM management: sector awareness, background read for sub-sector writes, bit examination to determine whether a sector erase needs to be issued, etc. It is in fact more like an EEPROM driver, but the hypervisor virtualization does require a "flush" command if you wish to commit a sector write prior to writing to a different sector, and this is sufficiently different from generic I2C/SPI EEPROMs that as a result it doesn't group well with them either. The simple character device is already in use by a range of Tilera SPI ROM management tools, as well as by customers. In addition, using the simple character device actually simplifies the userspace tools, since they don't need to manage sector erase, background read, etc. This both simplifies the code (since we can uniformly manage plain files and the SPI ROM) as well as makes the user code portable to non-Linux platforms that don't offer the same MTD ioctls.

2011-01-20kconfig: rename CONFIG_EMBEDDED to CONFIG_EXPERTDavid Rientjes
The meaning of CONFIG_EMBEDDED has long since been obsoleted; the option is used to configure any non-standard kernel with a much larger scope than only small devices. This patch renames the option to CONFIG_EXPERT in init/Kconfig and fixes references to the option throughout the kernel. A new CONFIG_EMBEDDED option is added that automatically selects CONFIG_EXPERT when enabled and can be used in the future to isolate options that should only be considered for embedded systems (RISC architectures, SLOB, etc). Calling the option "EXPERT" more accurately represents its intention: only expert users who understand the impact of the configuration changes they are making should enable it.

2008-12-25[S390] s390/hvc_console: z/VM IUCV hypervisor console supportHendrik Brueckner
This patch introduces a new hypervisor console (HVC) back-end that provides terminal access over the z/VM inter-user communication vehicle (IUCV). The z/VM IUCV communication is independent of the regular tcp/ip network and allows access even if there is no network connection between two z/VM guest virtual machines. The z/VM IUCV hypervisor console back-end helps the user to access a z/VM guest virtual machine that lacks of network connectivity; and thus, provides a "full-screen" terminal alternative to 3215/3270 terminal sessions. Use the hvc_iucv=[0..8] kernel boot parameter to specify the number of HVC terminals using a z/VM IUCV back-end. A recent version of the s390-tools package is required to establish a terminal connection to a z/VM IUCV hypervisor console back-end.

2008-11-19powerpc: udbg-based backend for hvc_consoleDavid Gibson
This adds a new backend for the hvc console based on the low-level udbg callbacks. This effectively implements a working runtime console in terms of the simple udbg primitives. This is kind of a hack - since udbg isn't something you really want to be using routinely - but it's really useful during bringup. This can be used to quickly implement a userspace-usable console while you're working on a proper driver for whatever console I/O device the hardware has. Or, it can be used to avoid writing a full blown tty/console driver entirely for quick-and-dirty I/O hardware that will later be replaced by something else.
