    cpuidle: Fix incorrect optimization

    fenrus75 authored torvalds committed
    commit 672917d ("cpuidle: menu governor: reduce latency on exit")
    added an optimization, where the analysis on the past idle period moved
    from the end of idle, to the beginning of the new idle.
    
    Unfortunately, this optimization had a bug where it zeroed one key
    variable for new use, that is needed for the analysis.  The fix is
    simple, zero the variable after doing the work from the previous idle.
    
    During the audit of the code that found this issue, another issue was
    also found; the ->measured_us data structure member is never set, a
    local variable is always used instead.

    md: restore ability of spare drives to spin down.

    neilbrown authored
    Some time ago we stopped the clean/active metadata updates
    from being written to a 'spare' device in most cases so that
    it could spin down and say spun down.  Device failure/removal
    etc are still recorded on spares.
    
    However commit 51d5668 broke this 50% of the time,
    depending on whether the event count is even or odd.
    The change log entry said:
    
       This means that the alignment between 'odd/even' and
        'clean/dirty' might take a little longer to attain,
    
    how ever the code makes no attempt to create that alignment, so it
    could take arbitrarily long.
    
    So when we find that clean/dirty is not aligned with odd/even,
    force a second metadata-update immediately.  There are already cases
    where a second metadata-update is needed immediately (e.g. when a
    device fails during the metadata update).  We just piggy-back on that.

    than the original code.

    soc_mbus_bytes_per_line() returns -EINVAL on error but we store it in an

  9. V4L/DVB: saa7146: fix regression of the av7110/budget-av driver

    Hans Verkuil authored Mauro Carvalho Chehab committed
    An earlier regression fix for the mxb driver (V4L/DVB: saa7146_vv: fix
    regression where v4l2_device was registered too late) caused a new
    regression in the av7110 driver.
    
    Reverted the old fix and fixed the problem in the mxb driver instead.
    Tested on mxb and budget-av cards.
    
    The real problem is that the saa7146 framework has separate probe()
    and attach() driver callbacks which should be rolled into one. This
    is now done for the mxb driver, but others should do the same. Lack
    of hardware makes this hard to do, though. I hope to get hold of some
    hexium cards and then I can try to improve the framework to prevent
    this from happening again.
