2013-04-15Move utf16 functions to kernel core and renameMatthew Garrett
We want to be able to use the utf16 functions that are currently present in the EFI variables code in platform-specific code as well. Move them to the kernel core, and in the process rename them to accurately describe what they do - they don't handle UTF16, only UCS2.

2012-10-08X.509: Implement simple static OID registryDavid Howells
Implement a simple static OID registry that allows the mapping of an encoded OID to an enum value for ease of use. The OID registry index enum appears in the: linux/oid_registry.h header file. A script generates the registry from lines in the header file that look like: <sp*>OID_foo,<sp*>/*<sp*><sp*>*/ The actual OID is taken to be represented by the numbers with interpolated dots in the comment. All other lines in the header are ignored. The registry is queries by calling: OID look_up_oid(const void *data, size_t datasize); This returns a number from the registry enum representing the OID if found or OID__NR if not.

This makes <asm/word-at-a-time.h> actually live up to its promise of allowing architectures to help tune the string functions that do their work a word at a time. David had already taken the x86 strncpy_from_user() function, modified it to work on sparc, and then done the extra work to make it generically useful. This then expands on that work by making x86 use that generic version, completing the circle. But more importantly, it fixes up the word-at-a-time interfaces so that it's now easy to also support things like strnlen_user(), and pretty much most random string functions. David reports that it all works fine on sparc, and Jonas Bonn reported that an earlier version of this worked on OpenRISC too. It's pretty easy for architectures to add support for this and just replace their private versions with the generic code. * generic-string-functions: sparc: use the new generic strnlen_user() function x86: use the new generic strnlen_user() function lib: add generic strnlen_user() function word-at-a-time: make the interfaces truly generic x86: use generic strncpy_from_user routine

This adds a new generic optimized strnlen_user() function that uses the <asm/word-at-a-time.h> infrastructure to portably do efficient string handling. In many ways, strnlen is much simpler than strncpy, and in particular we can always pre-align the words we load from memory. That means that all the worries about alignment etc are a non-issue, so this one can easily be used on any architecture. You obviously do have to do the appropriate word-at-a-time.h macros.

2012-04-20lib: add support for stmp-style devicesWolfram Sang
MX23/28 use IP cores which follow a register layout I have first seen on STMP3xxx SoCs. In this layout, every register actually has four u32: 1.) to store a value directly 2.) a SET register where every 1-bit sets the corresponding bit, others are unaffected 3.) same with a CLR register 4.) same with a TOG (toggle) register Also, the 2 MSBs in register 0 are always the same and can be used to reset the IP core. All this is strictly speaking not mach-specific (but IP core specific) and, thus, doesn't need to be in mach-mxs/include. At least mx6 also uses IP cores following this stmp-style. So: Introduce a stmp-style device, put the code and defines for that in a public place (lib/), and let drivers for stmp-style devices select that code. To avoid regressions and ease reviewing, the actual code is simply copied from mach-mxs. It definately wants updates, but those need a seperate patch series. Voila, mach dependency gone, reusable code introduced. Note that I didn't remove the duplicated code from mach-mxs yet, first the drivers have to be converted.

2012-03-23crc32: simplify unit test codeBob Pearson
Replace the unit test provided in crc32.c, which doesn't have a makefile and doesn't compile with current headers, with a simpler self test routine that also gives a measure of performance and runs at module init time. The self test option can be enabled through a configuration option CONFIG_CRC32_SELFTEST. The test stresses the pre and post loops and is thus not very realistic since actual uses will likely have addresses and lengths that are at least 4 byte aligned. However, the main loop is long enough so that the performance is dominated by that loop. The expected values for crc32_le and crc32_be were generated with the original version of crc32.c using CRC_BITS_LE = 8 and CRC_BITS_BE = 8. These values were then used to check all the values of the BITS parameters in both the original and new versions. The performance results show some variability from run to run in spite of attempts to both warm the cache and reduce the amount of OS noise by limiting interrutps during the test. To get comparable results and to analyse options wrt performance the best time reported over a small sample of runs has been taken.

2011-11-29dql: Dynamic queue limitsTom Herbert
Implementation of dynamic queue limits (dql). This is a libary which allows a queue limit to be dynamically managed. The goal of dql is to set the queue limit, number of objects to the queue, to be minimized without allowing the queue to be starved. dql would be used with a queue which has these properties: 1) Objects are queued up to some limit which can be expressed as a count of objects. 2) Periodically a completion process executes which retires consumed objects. 3) Starvation occurs when limit has been reached, all queued data has actually been consumed but completion processing has not yet run, so queuing new data is blocked. 4) Minimizing the amount of queued data is desirable. A canonical example of such a queue would be a NIC HW transmit queue. The queue limit is dynamic, it will increase or decrease over time depending on the workload. The queue limit is recalculated each time completion processing is done. Increases occur when the queue is starved and can exponentially increase over successive intervals. Decreases occur when more data is being maintained in the queue than needed to prevent starvation. The number of extra objects, or "slack", is measured over successive intervals, and to avoid hysteresis the limit is only reduced by the miminum slack seen over a configurable time period. dql API provides routines to manage the queue: - dql_init is called to intialize the dql structure - dql_reset is called to reset dynamic values - dql_queued called when objects are being enqueued - dql_avail returns availability in the queue - dql_completed is called when objects have be consumed in the queue Configuration consists of: - max_limit, maximum limit - min_limit, minimum limit - slack_hold_time, time to measure instances of slack before reducing queue limit Signed-off-by: Tom Herbert <therbert@google.com> Acked-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-11-24lib: move GENERIC_IOMAP to lib/KconfigMichael S. Tsirkin
define GENERIC_IOMAP in a central location instead of all architectures. This will be helpful for the follow-up patch which makes it select other configs. Code is also a bit shorter this way. Signed-off-by: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@redhat.com>

2011-11-09crypto: digital signature verification supportDmitry Kasatkin
This patch implements RSA digital signature verification using GnuPG library. The format of the signature and the public key is defined by their respective headers. The signature header contains version information, algorithm, and keyid, which was used to generate the signature. The key header contains version and algorythim type. The payload of the signature and the key are multi-precision integers. The signing and key management utilities evm-utils provide functionality to generate signatures and load keys into the kernel keyring. When the key is added to the kernel keyring, the keyid defines the name of the key. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Kasatkin <dmitry.kasatkin@intel.com> Acked-by: Mimi Zohar <zohar@us.ibm.com>
2011-11-09crypto: GnuPG based MPI lib - additional sources (part 4)Dmitry Kasatkin
Adds the multi-precision-integer maths library which was originally taken from GnuPG and ported to the kernel by (among others) David Howells. This version is taken from Fedora kernel 2.6.32-71.14.1.el6. The difference is that checkpatch reported errors and warnings have been fixed. This library is used to implemenet RSA digital signature verification used in IMA/EVM integrity protection subsystem. Due to patch size limitation, the patch is divided into 4 parts. This code is unnecessary for RSA digital signature verification, but for completeness it is included here and can be compiled, if CONFIG_MPILIB_EXTRA is enabled.

2011-08-03lib, Add lock-less NULL terminated single listHuang Ying
Cmpxchg is used to implement adding new entry to the list, deleting all entries from the list, deleting first entry of the list and some other operations. Because this is a single list, so the tail can not be accessed in O(1). If there are multiple producers and multiple consumers, llist_add can be used in producers and llist_del_all can be used in consumers. They can work simultaneously without lock. But llist_del_first can not be used here. Because llist_del_first depends on list->first->next does not changed if list->first is not changed during its operation, but llist_del_first, llist_add, llist_add (or llist_del_all, llist_add, llist_add) sequence in another consumer may violate that. If there are multiple producers and one consumer, llist_add can be used in producers and llist_del_all or llist_del_first can be used in the consumer. This can be summarized as follow: | add | del_first | del_all add | - | - | - del_first | | L | L del_all | | | - Where "-" stands for no lock is needed, while "L" stands for lock is needed. The list entries deleted via llist_del_all can be traversed with traversing function such as llist_for_each etc. But the list entries can not be traversed safely before deleted from the list. The order of deleted entries is from the newest to the oldest added one. If you want to traverse from the oldest to the newest, you must reverse the order by yourself before traversing. The basic atomic operation of this list is cmpxchg on long. On architectures that don't have NMI-safe cmpxchg implementation, the list can NOT be used in NMI handler. So code uses the list in NMI handler should depend on CONFIG_ARCH_HAVE_NMI_SAFE_CMPXCHG.

The brcm80211 driver in the staging tree has a cordic function to determine cosine and sine for a given angle. Feedback received from John Linville suggested that these kind of functions should be made available to others as a library function in the kernel tree. The b43 driver also has a cordic angle calculation implemented. Cc: linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org Cc: linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org Cc: "John W.
