2005-12-12[SPARC]: block/ needed in final image linkPaul Jackson1-1/+1
With this fix, sparc links vmlinuz again using crosstool. Without this fix, the final link fails missing several dozen dozen symbols, beginning with: kernel/built-in.o(.text+0x6fd0): In function `do_exit': : undefined reference to `exit_io_context' (exit_io_context is defined in block/ll_rw_blk.c).

This fixes one build error introduced in sparc with the patch of Oct 30, resent Nov 4 "[patch 3/5] atomic: atomic_inc_not_zero" I still can't get sparc to build, but at least it gets further after I remove this line.

2005-12-12[PATCH] Fix SCSI scanning slab corruptionBrian King1-3/+0
There is a double free in the scsi scan code if a LLDD's slave_alloc() call fails.

This reverts commit 1b0997f561bf46689cc6e0903f342e9bf2506bf1, which in turn reverted 34ea80ec6a02ad02e6b9c75c478c18e5880d6713 (which is thus re-instated). Quoth James Bottomley: "All it's doing is deferring the device_put() from the scsi_put_command() to after the scsi_run_queue(), which doesn't fix the sleep while atomic problem of the device release method. In both cases we still get the semaphore in atomic context problem which is caused by scsi_reap_target() doing a device_del(), which I assumed (wrongly) was valid from atomic context." who also promised to fix scsi_reap_target().

2005-12-12[PATCH] ACPI: fix sleeping whilst atomic warnings on resumeDave Jones1-1/+1
This has been broken for months. On resume, we call acpi_pci_link_set() with interrupts off, so we get a warning when we try to do a kmalloc of non atomic memory. The actual allocation is just 2 long's (plus extra byte for some reason I can't fathom), so a simple conversion to GFP_ATOMIC is probably the safest way to fix this. The error looks like this..

2005-12-12[PATCH] fix in __alloc_bootmem_core() when there is no free page in first ↵Haren Myneni1-0/+2
node's memory Hitting BUG_ON() in __alloc_bootmem_core() when there is no free page available in the first node's memory. For the case of kdump on PPC64 (Power 4 machine), the captured kernel is used two memory regions - memory for TCE tables (tce-base and tce-size at top of RAM and reserved) and captured kernel memory region (crashk_base and crashk_size). Since we reserve the memory for the first node, we should be returning from __alloc_bootmem_core() to search for the next node (pg_dat). Currently, find_next_zero_bit() is returning the n^th bit (eidx) when there is no free page. Then, test_bit() is failed since we set 0xff only for the actual size initially (init_bootmem_core()) even though rounded up to one page for bdata->node_bootmem_map. We are hitting the BUG_ON after failing to enter second "for" loop.

2005-12-12[PATCH] inotify: add two inotify_add_watch flagsJohn McCutchan2-3/+12
The below patch lets userspace have more control over the inodes that inotify will watch. It introduces two new flags. IN_ONLYDIR -- only watch the inode if it is a directory. This is needed to avoid the race that can occur when we want to be sure that we are watching a directory. IN_DONT_FOLLOW -- don't follow a symlink. In combination with IN_ONLYDIR we can make sure that we don't watch the target of symlinks. The issues the flags fix came up when writing the gnome-vfs inotify backend.

2005-12-12[PATCH] Add timestamp field to process eventsMatt Helsley2-0/+7
This adds a timestamp field to the events sent via the process event connector. The timestamp allows listeners to accurately account the duration(s) between a process' events and offers strong means with which to determine the order of events with respect to a given task while also avoiding the addition of per-task data. This alters the size and layout of the event structure and hence would break compatibility if process events connector as it stands in 2.6.15-rc2 were released as a mainline kernel.

2005-12-12[PATCH] Fix listxattr() for generic security attributesDaniel Drake1-1/+1
Commit f549d6c18c0e8e6cf1bf0e7a47acc1daf7e2cec1 introduced a generic fallback for security xattrs, but appears to include a subtle bug. Gentoo users with kernels with selinux compiled in, and coreutils compiled with acl support, noticed that they could not copy files on tmpfs using 'cp'. cp (compiled with acl support) copies the file, lists the extended attributes on the old file, copies them all to the new file, and then exits. However the listxattr() calls were failing with this odd behaviour: llistxattr("a.out", (nil), 0) = 17 llistxattr("a.out", 0x7fffff8c6cb0, 17) = -1 ERANGE (Numerical result out of range) I believe this is a simple problem in the logic used to check the buffer sizes; if the user sends a buffer the exact size of the data, then its ok :) This change solves the problem.

2005-12-11Allow arbitrary shared PFNMAP'sLinus Torvalds1-4/+12
A shared mapping doesn't cause COW-pages, so we don't need to worry about the whole vm_pgoff logic to decide if a PFN-remapped page has gone through COW or not. This makes it possible to entirely avoid the special "partial remapping" logic for the common case. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-12-12[PATCH] ppc32: set smp_tb_synchronized on UP with SMP kernelJohannes Berg1-0/+4
ppc32 kernel, when built with CONFIG_SMP and booted on a single CPU machine, will not properly set smp_tb_synchronized, thus causing gettimeofday() to not use the HW timebase and to be limited to jiffy resolution. This, among others, causes unacceptable pauses when launching X.org.

The code that sets the clock spreading feature of the Intrepid ASIC must not be run on some machine models or those won't boot. This fixes it. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>

It is a simple bug which uses the wrong member. This bug does not seriously affect ordinary use of IPsec. But it is important to pass IPv6 ready logo phase-2 conformance test of IPsec SGW. Signed-off-by: Kazunori MIYAZAWA <miyazawa@linux-ipv6.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
