2007-04-25ACPI: thinkpad-acpi: update brightness sysfs interface supportHenrique de Moraes Holschuh
Update the brightness sysfs interface (done through the backlight class) to be in line with the rest of the thinkpad-acpi driver. This renames the incorrect, un-obvious, and clash-prone name of "ibm" for the backlight device to a much more fitting and descriptive "thinkpad_screen".

2007-04-25ACPI: thinkpad-acpi: add sysfs support to fan subdriverHenrique de Moraes Holschuh
Export sysfs attributes to monitor and control the internal thinkpad fan (some thinkpads have more than one fan, but thinkpad-acpi doesn't support the second fan yet). The sysfs interface follows the hwmon design guide for fan devices. Also, fix some stray "thermal" files in the fan procfs description that have been there forever, and officially support "full-speed" as the name for the PWM-disabled state of the fan controller to keep it in line with the hwmon interface. It is much better a name for that mode than the unobvious "disengaged" anyway. Change the procfs interface to also accept full-speed as a fan level, but still report it as disengaged for backwards compatibility.

2007-04-25ACPI: thinkpad-acpi: add sysfs support to the thermal subdriverHenrique de Moraes Holschuh
Export thinkpad thermal sensors to sysfs, following the hwmon specification for thermal monitoring sensors. ThinkPad thermal monitoring is done by the EC. Sensors can show up or disappear at runtime when they are inside hotswappable hardware, such as batteries. Sensors that are not available return -ENXIO when accessed. Up to 16 thermal sensors are supported on new firmware (but nobody has reported a ThinkPad with more than 12 sensors so far), and 8 sensors are supported on older firmware. Thermal sensor mapping is model-specific. Precision varies, it is 1 degree Celcius on new ThinkPads, but higher on some older models.

2007-04-24[PATCH] x86: Remove noreplacement optionAndi Kleen
noreplacement is dangerous on modern systems because it will not replace the context switch FNSAVE with SSE aware FXSAVE. But other places in the kernel still assume SSE and do FXSAVE and the CPU will then access FXSAVE information with FNSAVE and cause corruption. Easiest way to avoid this is to remove the option. It was mostly for paranoia reasons anyways and alternative()s have been stable for some time. Thanks to Jeremy F. for reporting and helping debug it. Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de>

2007-04-02[PATCH] CPUSETS: add mems to basic usage documentationSimon Horman
It seems that there must be at least one node in mems and at least one CPU in cpus in order to be able to assign tasks to a cpuset. This makes sense. And I think it would also make sense to include a mems setting in the basic usage section of the documentation. I also wonder if something logged to dmsg, explaining why a write failed, would be a good enhancement.

2007-03-30ACPI: ibm-acpi: rename driver to thinkpad-acpiHenrique de Moraes Holschuh
Rename the ibm-acpi driver to thinkpad-acpi. ThinkPads are not even made by IBM anymore, so it is high time to rename the driver... The name thinkpad-acpi was used sometime ago by a thinkpad-specific hotkey driver by Erik Rigtorp, around the 2.6.8-2.6.10 time frame. The driver apparently never got merged into mainline (it did make some trips through -mm). ibm-acpi was merged soon after, making its debut in 2.6.10. The reuse of the thinkpad-acpi name shouldn't be a problem as far as user confusion goes, as Erik's thinkpad-acpi apparently didn't get widespread use in the Linux ThinkPad community and most hits for thinkpad-acpi in google point to ibm-acpi anyway. Erik, if you read this, please consider the reuse of the thinkpad-acpi name as a compliment to your effort to make ThinkPads more useful to all of us.

It turned out that it is almost impossible to trust ACPI, BIOS & Co. regarding the C states. This was the reason to switch the local apic timer off in C2 state already. OTOH there are sane and well behaving systems, which get punished by that decision. Allow the user to confirm that the local apic timer is trustworthy in C2 state.

2007-03-22[PATCH] i386: disable local apic timer via command line or dmi quirkThomas Gleixner
The local APIC timer stops to work in deeper C-States. This is handled by the ACPI code and a broadcast mechanism in the clockevents / tick managment code. Some systems do not expose the deeper C-States to the kernel, but switch into deeper C-States behind the kernels back. This delays the local apic timer interrupts for ever and makes the systems unusable. Add a command line option to disable the local apic timer and a dmi quirk for known broken systems. Andi sayeth: While not wrong by itself i think it is still better to use some heuristic -- like "has battery in ACPI" With the DMI table if the problem is more wide spread we will just continue extending it. But anyways should be ok now for .21 although I'm not really happy with it.

there is a tiny bug in Documentation/crypto/api-intro.txt.

(static inline int crypto_hash_digest(struct hash_desc *desc, struct scatterlist *sg, unsigned int nbytes, u8 *out) The code in the example passes the address of a pointer (an array actually) as the second argument, while the function expects the pointer itself.

2007-03-16[PATCH] gpio_direction_output() needs an initial valueDavid Brownell
It's been pointed out that output GPIOs should have an initial value, to avoid signal glitching ... among other things, it can be some time before a driver is ready. This patch corrects that oversight, fixing - documentation - platforms supporting the GPIO interface - users of that call (just one for now, others are pending) There's only one user of this call for now since most platforms are still using non-generic GPIO setup code, which in most cases already couples the initial value with its "set output mode" request. Note that most platforms are clear about the hardware letting the output value be set before the pin direction is changed, but the s3c241x docs are vague on that topic ... so those chips might not avoid the glitches.

2007-03-16[POWERPC] Update documentation for flat device tree format v17David Gibson
This patch updates booting-without-of.txt to describe version 17 of the flattened device tree format. Version 17 is a small, backwards compatible change from version 16, adding an extra field giving the size of the device tree's structure block. At this time, the kernel has no use for the extra information, however its presence can make life easier for bootloaders or other software manipulating the tree. In addition this patch adds information on the size_dt_strings field of the device tree header, present since version 3 of the flattened tree format, but omitted from the documentation. It also makes changes to consistently refer to versions 16 and 17 as versions 16 and 17 in decimal, rather than version 0x10 which was occasionally used for version 16 previously. Finally, we also add the new field to the definition of the device tree header structure in prom.h Signed-off-by: David Gibson <david@gibson.dropbear.id.au> Acked-by: Jon Loeliger <jdl@freescale.com> Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>
