2006-06-06[MIPS] Fix non-linear memory mapping on MIPSSergei Shtylyov
Fix the non-linear memory mapping done via remap_file_pages() -- it didn't work on any MIPS CPU because the page offset clashing with _PAGE_FILE and some other page protection bits which should have been left zeros for this kind of pages.

2006-06-06[MIPS] Fix swap entry for MIPS32 36-bit physical addressSergei Shtylyov
With 64-bit physical address enabled, 'swapon' was causing kernel oops on Alchemy CPUs (MIPS32) because of the swap entry type field corrupting the _PAGE_FILE bit in 'pte_low' field. So, switch to storing the swap entry in 'pte_high' field using all its bits except _PAGE_GLOBAL and _PAGE_VALID which gives 25 bits for the swap entry offset.

2006-06-05[PATCH] alpha: SMP IRQ routing fixIvan Kokshaysky
From: Ivan Kokshaysky <ink@jurassic.park.msu.ru> After removal of fixup_cpu_present_map() function Alpha ended up with an empty cpu_present_map, so secondary CPUs on SMP systems are not being started. Worse, on some platforms we route interrupts to secondary CPUs using cpu_possible_map which is still populated properly. As a result, these interrupts go nowhere so the machines like DP264 aren't able to boot even with a primary CPU. Fixed basically by s/cpu_present_mask/cpu_present_map/.

2006-06-05IPoIB: Fix AH leak at interface downEli Cohen
When ipoib_stop() is called it first calls netif_stop_queue() to stop the kernel from passing more packets to the network driver. However, the completion handler may call netif_wake_queue() re-enabling packet transfer. This might result in leaks (we see AH leaks which we think can be attributed to this bug) as new packets get posted while the interface is going down.

2006-06-02[ARM] 3540/1: ixp23xx: deal with gap in interrupt bitmasksLennert Buytenhek
Patch from Lennert Buytenhek On the ixp23xx, the microengine thread interrupt sources are numbered 56..119, but their mask/status bits are located in bit positions 64..127 in the various registers in the interrupt controller (bit positions 56..63 are unused.) We don't deal with this, so currently, when asked to enable IRQ 64, we will enable IRQ 56 instead. The only interrupts >= 64 are the thread interrupt sources, and there are no in-tree users of those yet, so this is fortunately not a big problem, but this needs fixing anyway.

2006-06-02[ARM] 3539/1: ixp23xx: fix __arch_ixp23xx_is_coherent() for A1 steppingLennert Buytenhek
Patch from Lennert Buytenhek The current __ixp23xx_arch_is_coherent() check assumes that the lower byte of IXP23XX_PRODUCT_ID is identical to the lower byte of processor_id, but this is not the case, and because of this we were incorrectly enabling coherency on A1 stepping CPUs. Stepping A1 of the ixp2350, which has a PRODUCT_ID of 0x401, has '02' in the lower byte of processor_id, while A2, with a PRODUCT_ID of 0x402, has '04' in the lower byte of processor_id. So, to check for >= A2, we really need to check the lower byte of processor_id against >= 4.

2006-06-02[PATCH] slab.c: fix offslab_limit bugIngo Molnar
mm/slab.c's offlab_limit logic is totally broken. Firstly, "offslab_limit" is a global variable while it should either be calculated in situ or should be passed in as a parameter. Secondly, the more serious problem with it is that the condition for calculating it: if (!(OFF_SLAB(sizes->cs_cachep))) { offslab_limit = sizes->cs_size - sizeof(struct slab); offslab_limit /= sizeof(kmem_bufctl_t); is in total disconnect with the condition that makes use of it: /* More than offslab_limit objects will cause problems */ if ((flags & CFLGS_OFF_SLAB) && num > offslab_limit) break; but due to offslab_limit being a global variable this breakage was hidden. Up until lockdep came along and perturbed the slab sizes sufficiently so that the first off-slab cache would still see a (non-calculated) zero value for offslab_limit and would panic with: kmem_cache_create: couldn't create cache size-512. Call Trace: [<ffffffff8020a5b9>] show_trace+0x96/0x1c8 [<ffffffff8020a8f0>] dump_stack+0x13/0x15 [<ffffffff8022994f>] panic+0x39/0x21a [<ffffffff80270814>] kmem_cache_create+0x5a0/0x5d0 [<ffffffff80aced62>] kmem_cache_init+0x193/0x379 [<ffffffff80abf779>] start_kernel+0x17f/0x218 [<ffffffff80abf263>] _sinittext+0x263/0x26a Kernel panic - not syncing: kmem_cache_create(): failed to create slab `size-512' Paolo Ornati's config on x86_64 managed to trigger it. The fix is to move the calculation to the place that makes use of it. This also makes slab.o 54 bytes smaller. Btw., the check itself is quite silly. Its intention is to test whether the number of objects per slab would be higher than the number of slab control pointers possible. In theory it could be triggered: if someone tried to allocate 4-byte objects cache and explicitly requested with CFLGS_OFF_SLAB. So i kept the check. Out of historic interest i checked how old this bug was and it's ancient, 10 years old! It is the oldest hidden and then truly triggering bugs i ever saw being fixed in the kernel!
