2012-03-07lib: reduce the use of module.h wherever possiblePaul Gortmaker
For files only using THIS_MODULE and/or EXPORT_SYMBOL, map them onto including export.h -- or if the file isn't even using those, then just delete the include. Fix up any implicit include dependencies that were being masked by module.h along the way. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>
2008-07-28generic, memparse(): constify argumentJeremy Fitzhardinge
memparse()'s first argument can be const, so it should be. Signed-off-by: Jeremy Fitzhardinge <jeremy.fitzhardinge@citrix.com> Cc: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2008-07-25lib: allow memparse() to accept a NULL and ignorable second parmRobert P. J. Day
Extend memparse() to allow the caller to use a NULL second parameter, which would represent no interest in returning the address of the end of the parsed string. In numerous cases, callers invoke memparse() to parse a possibly-suffixed string (such as "64K" or "2G" or whatever) and define a character pointer to accept the end pointer being returned by memparse() even though they have no interest in it and promptly throw it away. This (backward-compatible) enhancement allows callers to use NULL in the cases where they just don't care about getting back that end pointer.

2007-02-11[PATCH] Numerous fixes to kernel-doc info in source files.Robert P. J. Day
A variety of (mostly) innocuous fixes to the embedded kernel-doc content in source files, including: * make multi-line initial descriptions single line * denote some function names, constants and structs as such * change erroneous opening '/*' to '/**' in a few places * reword some text for clarity Signed-off-by: Robert P.

2006-12-07[PATCH] get_options to allow a hypenated range for isolcpusDerek Fults
This allows a hyphenated range of positive numbers in the string passed to command line helper function, get_options. Currently the command line option "isolcpus=" takes as its argument a list of cpus. Format: <cpu number>,...,<cpu number> Valid values of <cpu_number> include all cpus, 0 to "number of CPUs in system - 1". This can get extremely long when isolating the majority of cpus on a large system. The kernel isolcpus code would not need any changing to use this feature. To use it, the change would be in the command line format for 'isolcpus=' Format: <cpu number>,...,<cpu number> or <cpu number>-<cpu number> (must be a positive range in ascending order.) or a mixture <cpu number>,...,<cpu number>-<cpu number> Signed-off-by: Derek Fults <dfults@sgi.com> Cc: "Randy.Dunlap" <rdunlap@xenotime.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

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!
