2007-03-22[POWERPC] EEH: rm un-needed dataLinas Vepstas
The EEH event notification system passes around data that is not needed or at least, not used properly. Stop passing this data; get it in a more reliable fashion. Signed-off-by: Linas Vepstas <linas@austin.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>
2006-04-22[PATCH] powerpc/pseries: clear PCI failure counter if no new failuresLinas Vepstas
The current PCI error recovery system keeps track of the number of PCI card resets, and refuses to bring a card back up if this number is too large. The goal of doing this was to avoid an infinite loop of resets if a card is obviously dead. However, if the failures are rare, but the machine has a high uptime, this mechanism might still be triggered; this is too harsh. This patch will avoids this problem by decrementing the fail count after an hour. Thus, as long as a pci card BSOD's less than 6 times an hour, it will continue to be reset indefinitely. If it's failure rate is greater than that, it will be taken off-line permanently. This patch is larger than it might otherwise be because it changes indentation by removing a pointless while-loop. The while loop is not needed, as the handler is invoked once fo each event (by schedule_work()); the loop is leftover cruft from an earlier implementation.

2006-01-10[PATCH] powerpc: PCI Error Recovery: PPC64 core recovery routinesLinas Vepstas
Various PCI bus errors can be signaled by newer PCI controllers. The core error recovery routines are architecture dependent. This patch adds a recovery infrastructure for the PPC64 pSeries systems.

2006-01-09[PATCH] powerpc: sanitize header files for user space includesArnd Bergmann
include/asm-ppc/ had #ifdef __KERNEL__ in all header files that are not meant for use by user space, include/asm-powerpc does not have this yet. This patch gets us a lot closer there. There are a few cases where I was not sure, so I left them out. I have verified that no CONFIG_* symbols are used outside of __KERNEL__ any more and that there are no obvious compile errors when including any of the headers in user space libraries.

2005-11-10[PATCH] ppc64: PCI error event dispatcherLinas Vepstas
12-eeh-event-dispatcher.patch ppc64: EEH Recovery dispatcher thread This patch adds a mechanism to create recovery threads when an EEH event is received. Since an EEH freeze state may be detected within an interrupt context, we need to get out of the interrupt context before starting recovery. This dispatcher does this in two steps: first, it uses a workqueue to get out, and then lanuches a kernel thread, so that the recovery routine can sleep for exteded periods without upseting the keventd. A kernel thread is created with each EEH event, rather than having one long-running daemon started at boot time. This is because it is anticipated that EEH events will be very rare (very very rare, ideally) and so its pointless to cluter the process tables with a daemon that will almost never run.
