      cpufreq: create another field .flags in cpufreq_frequency_table · 7f4b0461
      Viresh Kumar authored
      Currently cpufreq frequency table has two fields: frequency and driver_data.
      driver_data is only for drivers' internal use and cpufreq core shouldn't use
      it at all. But with the introduction of BOOST frequencies, this assumption
      was broken and we started using it as a flag instead.
      There are two problems due to this:
      - It is against the description of this field, as driver's data is used by
        the core now.
      - if drivers fill it with -3 for any frequency, then those frequencies are
        never considered by cpufreq core as it is exactly same as value of
        CPUFREQ_BOOST_FREQ, i.e. ~2.
      The best way to get this fixed is by creating another field flags which
      will be used for such flags. This patch does that. Along with that various
      drivers need modifications due to the change of struct cpufreq_frequency_table.

      cpufreq: Implement light weight ->target_index() routine · 9c0ebcf7
      Viresh Kumar authored
      Currently, the prototype of cpufreq_drivers target routines is:
      int target(struct cpufreq_policy *policy, unsigned int target_freq,
      		unsigned int relation);
      And most of the drivers call cpufreq_frequency_table_target() to get a valid
      index of their frequency table which is closest to the target_freq. And they
      don't use target_freq and relation after that.
      So, it makes sense to just do this work in cpufreq core before calling
      cpufreq_frequency_table_target() and simply pass index instead. But this can be
      done only with drivers which expose their frequency table with cpufreq core. For
      others we need to stick with the old prototype of target() until those drivers
      are converted to expose frequency tables.
      This patch implements the new light weight prototype for target_index() routine.
      It looks like this:
      int target_index(struct cpufreq_policy *policy, unsigned int index);
      CPUFreq core will call cpufreq_frequency_table_target() before calling this
      routine and pass index to it. Because CPUFreq core now requires to call routines
      present in freq_table.c CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_TABLE must be enabled all the time.
      This also marks target() interface as deprecated. So, that new drivers avoid
      using it. And Documentation is updated accordingly.
      It also converts existing .target() to newly defined light weight
      .target_index() routine for many driver.

      cpufreq: Add support for x86 cpuinfo auto loading v4 · fa8031ae
      Andi Kleen authored
      This marks all the x86 cpuinfo tables to the CPU specific device drivers,
      to allow auto loading by udev. This should simplify the distribution
      startup scripts for this greatly.
      I didn't add MODULE_DEVICE_IDs to the centrino and p4-clockmod drivers,
      because those probably shouldn't be auto loaded and the acpi driver
      be used instead (not fully sure on that, would appreciate feedback)
      The old nforce drivers autoload based on the PCI ID.
      ACPI cpufreq is autoloaded in another patch.
      v3: Autoload gx based on PCI IDs only. Remove cpu check (Dave Jones)
      v4: Use newly introduce HW_PSTATE feature for powernow-k8 loading

      [CPUFREQ] use dynamic debug instead of custom infrastructure · 2d06d8c4
      Dominik Brodowski authored
      With dynamic debug having gained the capability to report debug messages
      also during the boot process, it offers a far superior interface for
      debug messages than the custom cpufreq infrastructure. As a first step,
      remove the old cpufreq_debug_printk() function and replace it with a call
      to the generic pr_debug() function.
      How can dynamic debug be used on cpufreq? You need a kernel which has
      To enabled debugging during runtime, mount debugfs and
      $ echo -n 'module cpufreq +p' > /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control
      for debugging the complete "cpufreq" module. To achieve the same goal during
      boot, append
      	ddebug_query="module cpufreq +p"
      as a boot parameter to the kernel of your choice.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      Revert "[CPUFREQ] Disable sysfs ui for p4-clockmod." · 129f8ae9
      Dave Jones authored
      This reverts commit e088e4c9.
      Removing the sysfs interface for p4-clockmod was flagged as a
      regression in bug 12826.
      Course of action:
       - Find out the remaining causes of overheating, and fix them
         if possible. ACPI should be doing the right thing automatically.
         If it isn't, we need to fix that.
       - mark p4-clockmod ui as deprecated
       - try again with the removal in six months.
      It's not really feasible to printk about the deprecation, because
      it needs to happen at all the sysfs entry points, which means adding
      a lot of strcmp("p4-clockmod".. calls to the core, which.. bleuch.

      x86: convert cpuinfo_x86 array to a per_cpu array · 92cb7612
      Mike Travis authored
      cpu_data is currently an array defined using NR_CPUS.  This means that
      we overallocate since we will rarely really use maximum configured cpus.
      When NR_CPU count is raised to 4096 the size of cpu_data becomes
      3,145,728 bytes.
      These changes were adopted from the sparc64 (and ia64) code.  An
      additional field was added to cpuinfo_x86 to be a non-ambiguous cpu
      index.  This corresponds to the index into a cpumask_t as well as the
      per_cpu index.  It's used in various places like show_cpuinfo().
      cpu_data is defined to be the boot_cpu_data structure for the NON-SMP
