2005-05-01[PATCH] Increase number of e820 entries hard limit from 32 to 128Venkatesh Pallipadi
The specifications that talk about E820 map doesn't have an upper limit on the number of e820 entries. But, today's kernel has a hard limit of 32. With increase in memory size, we are seeing the number of E820 entries reaching close to 32. Patch below bumps the number upto 128. The patch changes the location of EDDBUF in zero-page (as it comes after E820). As, EDDBUF is not used by boot loaders, this patch should not have any effect on bootloader-setup code interface. Patch covers both i386 and x86-64. Tested on: * grub booting bzImage * lilo booting bzImage with EDID info enabled * pxeboot of bzImage Side-effect: bss increases by ~ 2K and init.data increases by ~7.5K on all systems, due to increase in size of static arrays.

2005-05-01[PATCH] CPUID bug and inconsistency fixH. Peter Anvin
The recent support for K8 multicore was misported from x86-64 to i386, due to an unnecessary inconsistency between the CPUID code. Sure, there is are no x86-64 VIA chips yet, but it should happen eventually. This patch fixes the i386 bug as well as makes x86-64 match i386 in the handing of the CPUID array. Signed-off-by: H.

2005-05-01[PATCH] check nmi watchdog is brokenJack F Vogel
A bug against an xSeries system showed up recently noting that the check_nmi_watchdog() test was failing. I have been investigating it and discovered in both i386 and x86_64 the recent change to the routine to use the cpu_callin_map has uncovered a problem. Prior to that change, on an SMP box, the test was trivally passing because all cpu's were found to not yet be online, but now with the callin_map they are discovered, it goes on to test the counter and they have not yet begun to increment, so it announces a CPU is stuck and bails out. On all the systems I have access to test, the announcement of failure is also bougs... by the time you can login and check /proc/interrupts, the NMI count is happily incrementing on all CPUs. Its just that the test is being done too early. I have tried moving the call to the test around a bit, and it was always too early. I finally hit on this proposed solution, it delays the routine via a late_initcall(), seems like the right solution to me.

2005-04-16[PATCH] x86_64: Switch SMP bootup over to new CPU hotplug state machineAndi Kleen
This will allow hotplug CPU in the future and in general cleans up a lot of crufty code. It also should plug some races that the old hackish way introduces. Remove one old race workaround in NMI watchdog setup that is not needed anymore. I removed the old total sum of bogomips reporting code. The brag value of BogoMips has been greatly devalued in the last years on the open market. Real CPU hotplug will need some more work, but the infrastructure for it is there now. One drawback: the new TSC sync algorithm is less accurate than before. The old way of zeroing TSCs is too intrusive to do later. Instead the TSC of the BP is duplicated now, which is less accurate. akpm: - sync_tsc_bp_init seems to have the sense of `init' inverted. - SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED is deprecated - use DEFINE_SPINLOCK.

2005-04-16[PATCH] x86_64: add support for Intel dual-core detection and displayingAndi Kleen
Appended patch adds the support for Intel dual-core detection and displaying the core related information in /proc/cpuinfo. It adds two new fields "core id" and "cpu cores" to x86 /proc/cpuinfo and the "core id" field for x86_64("cpu cores" field is already present in x86_64). Number of processor cores in a die is detected using cpuid(4) and this is documented in IA-32 Intel Architecture Software Developer's Manual (vol 2a) (http://developer.intel.com/design/pentium4/manuals/index_new.htm#sdm_vol2a) This patch also adds cpu_core_map similar to cpu_sibling_map.

2005-04-16[PATCH] x86_64: Keep only a single debug notifier chainAndi Kleen
Calling a notifier three times in the debug handler does not make much sense, because a debugger can figure out the various conditions by itself. Remove the additional calls to DIE_DEBUG and DIE_DEBUGSTEP completely. This matches what i386 does now. This also makes sure interrupts are always still disabled when calling a debugger, which prevents: BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000001] code: tpopf/1470 caller is post_kprobe_handler+0x9/0x70 Call Trace:<ffffffff8024f10f>{smp_processor_id+191} <ffffffff80120e69>{post_kpro be_handler+9} <ffffffff80120f7a>{kprobe_exceptions_notify+58} <ffffffff80144fc0>{notifier_call_chain+32} <ffffffff80110daf>{do_debug+335} <ffffffff8010f513>{debug+127} <EOE> on preemptible debug kernels with kprobes when single stepping in user space. This was probably a bug even on non preempt kernels, this function was supposed to be running with interrupts off according to a comment there. Note to third part debugger maintainers: please double check your debugger can still single step.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
