      rapidio: add modular build option for the subsystem core · fdf90abc
      Alexandre Bounine authored
      Add a configuration option to build RapidIO subsystem core code as a
      loadable kernel module.  Currently this option is available only for
      x86-based platforms, with the additional patch for PowerPC planned to be
      provided later.
      This patch replaces kernel command line parameter "riohdid=" with its
      module-specific analog "rapidio.hdid=".

      mm: soft-dirty bits for user memory changes tracking · 0f8975ec
      Pavel Emelyanov authored
      The soft-dirty is a bit on a PTE which helps to track which pages a task
      writes to.  In order to do this tracking one should
        1. Clear soft-dirty bits from PTEs ("echo 4 > /proc/PID/clear_refs)
        2. Wait some time.
        3. Read soft-dirty bits (55'th in /proc/PID/pagemap2 entries)
      To do this tracking, the writable bit is cleared from PTEs when the
      soft-dirty bit is.  Thus, after this, when the task tries to modify a
      page at some virtual address the #PF occurs and the kernel sets the
      soft-dirty bit on the respective PTE.
      Note, that although all the task's address space is marked as r/o after
      the soft-dirty bits clear, the #PF-s that occur after that are processed
      fast.  This is so, since the pages are still mapped to physical memory,
      and thus all the kernel does is finds this fact out and puts back
      writable, dirty and soft-dirty bits on the PTE.
      Another thing to note, is that when mremap moves PTEs they are marked
      with soft-dirty as well, since from the user perspective mremap modifies
      the virtual memory at mremap's new address.

      time: Revert ALWAYS_USE_PERSISTENT_CLOCK compile time optimizaitons · b4f711ee
      John Stultz authored
      Kay Sievers noted that the ALWAYS_USE_PERSISTENT_CLOCK config,
      which enables some minor compile time optimization to avoid
      uncessary code in mostly the suspend/resume path could cause
      problems for userland.
      In particular, the dependency for RTC_HCTOSYS on
      !ALWAYS_USE_PERSISTENT_CLOCK, which avoids setting the time
      twice and simplifies suspend/resume, has the side effect
      of causing the /sys/class/rtc/rtcN/hctosys flag to always be
      zero, and this flag is commonly used by udev to setup the
      /dev/rtc symlink to /dev/rtcN, which can cause pain for
      older applications.
      While the udev rules could use some work to be less fragile,
      breaking userland should strongly be avoided. Additionally
      the compile time optimizations are fairly minor, and the code
      being optimized is likely to be reworked in the future, so
      lets revert this change.

      Kconfig: consolidate CONFIG_DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKS · 446f24d1
      Stephen Boyd authored
      The help text for this config is duplicated across the x86, parisc, and
      s390 Kconfig.debug files.  Arnd Bergman noted that the help text was
      slightly misleading and should be fixed to state that enabling this
      option isn't a problem when using pre 4.4 gcc.
      To simplify the rewording, consolidate the text into lib/Kconfig.debug
      and modify it there to be more explicit about when you should say N to
      this config.
      Also, make the text a bit more generic by stating that this option
      enables compile time checks so we can cover architectures which emit
      warnings vs.  ones which emit errors.  The details of how an
      architecture decided to implement the checks isn't as important as the
      concept of compile time checking of copy_from_user() calls.
      While we're doing this, remove all the copy_from_user_overflow() code
      that's duplicated many times and place it into lib/ so that any
      architecture supporting this option can get the function for free.

      x86: Do full rtc synchronization with ntp · 3195ef59
      Prarit Bhargava authored
      Every 11 minutes ntp attempts to update the x86 rtc with the current
      system time.  Currently, the x86 code only updates the rtc if the system
      time is within +/-15 minutes of the current value of the rtc. This
      was done originally to avoid setting the RTC if the RTC was in localtime
      mode (common with Windows dualbooting).  Other architectures do a full
      synchronization and now that we have better infrastructure to detect
      when the RTC is in localtime, there is no reason that x86 should be
      software limited to a 30 minute window.
      This patch changes the behavior of the kernel to do a full synchronization
      (year, month, day, hour, minute, and second) of the rtc when ntp requests
      a synchronization between the system time and the rtc.
      I've used the RTC library functions in this patchset as they do all the
      required bounds checking.

      x86-32, mm: Rip out x86_32 NUMA remapping code · f03574f2
      Dave Hansen authored
      This code was an optimization for 32-bit NUMA systems.
      It has probably been the cause of a number of subtle bugs over
      the years, although the conditions to excite them would have
      been hard to trigger.  Essentially, we remap part of the kernel
      linear mapping area, and then sometimes part of that area gets
      freed back in to the bootmem allocator.  If those pages get
      used by kernel data structures (say mem_map[] or a dentry),
      there's no big deal.  But, if anyone ever tried to use the
      linear mapping for these pages _and_ cared about their physical
      address, bad things happen.
      For instance, say you passed __GFP_ZERO to the page allocator
      and then happened to get handed one of these pages, it zero the
      remapped page, but it would make a pte to the _old_ page.
      There are probably a hundred other ways that it could screw
      with things.
      We don't need to hang on to performance optimizations for
      these old boxes any more.  All my 32-bit NUMA systems are long
      dead and buried, and I probably had access to more than most
      This code is causing real things to break today:
      I looked in to actually fixing this, but it requires surgery
      to way too much brittle code, as well as stuff like
      [ hpa: Cc: this for -stable, since it is a memory corruption issue.
        However, an alternative is to simply mark NUMA as depends BROKEN
        rather than EXPERIMENTAL in the X86_32 subclause... ]

      x86: add support for Intel Low Power Subsystem · 3d48aab1
      Mika Westerberg authored
      We are starting to see traditional SoC peripherals also in the x86 world in
      chips like Intel Lynxpoint. Typically we already have a Linux driver for
      the peripheral but it takes advantage of the common clk framework to
      control and retrieve information about the peripheral clock.
      So far there hasn't been a standard way on x86 to pass information such as
      clock rate from whatever the configuration system is used to the driver,
      but instead different variations have emerged, like adding this information
      to the platform data.
      Solve this by adding a new config option X86_INTEL_LPSS. If this is
      selected we enable common clk framework (and everything else) that is
      needed to support the Intel LPSS drivers.
      Enabling common clk framework on x86 was originally proposed by Mark Brown.
