    Linus Torvalds authored
    This reverts commit c9d6073.
    
    It was totally bogus.

  2. VM: add "vm_insert_page()" function

    Linus Torvalds authored
    This is what a lot of drivers will actually want to use to insert
    individual pages into a user VMA.  It doesn't have the old PageReserved
    restrictions of remap_pfn_range(), and it doesn't complain about partial
    remappings.
    
    The page you insert needs to be a nice clean kernel allocation, so you
    can't insert arbitrary page mappings with this, but that's not what
    people want.

    [PATCH] SiS DRM: Fix possible NULL dereference

    e4t authored Linus Torvalds committed
    This fixes a NULL pointer reference in DRM.  The SiS driver tries to
    allocate a big chunk of memory, but the return value is never checked.

    [PATCH] USB: ehci fixups

    David Brownell authored gregkh committed
    Rename the EHCI "reset" routine so it better matches what it does (setup);
    and move the one-time data structure setup earlier, before doing anything
    that implicitly relies on it having been completed already.

    [PATCH] USB: Fix USB suspend/resume crasher (#2)

    ozbenh authored gregkh committed
    This patch closes the IRQ race and makes various other OHCI & EHCI code
    path safer vs. suspend/resume.
    I've been able to (finally !) successfully suspend and resume various
    Mac models, with or without USB mouse plugged, or plugging while asleep,
    or unplugging while asleep etc... all without a crash.
    
    Alan, please verify the UHCI bit I did, I only verified that it builds.
    It's very simple so I wouldn't expect any issue there. If you aren't
    confident, then just drop the hunks that change uhci-hcd.c
    
    I also made the patch a little bit more "safer" by making sure the store
    to the interrupt register that disables interrupts is not posted before
    I set the flag and drop the spinlock.
    
    Without this patch, you cannot reliably sleep/wakeup any recent Mac, and
    I suspect PCs have some more sneaky issues too (they don't frankly crash
    with machine checks because x86 tend to silently swallow PCI errors but
    that won't last afaik, at least PCI Express will blow up in those
    situations, but the USB code may still misbehave).

  17. [PATCH] hfsplus: don't modify journaled volume

    Roman Zippel authored Linus Torvalds committed
    Access to a journaled HFS+ volume is not officially supported under Linux, so
    mount such a volume read-only, but users can override this behaviour using the
    "force" mount option.
    
    The minimum requirement to relax this check is to at least check that the
    journal is empty and so nothing needs to be replayed to make sure the volume
    is consistent.

    [PATCH] reiserfs: handle cnode allocation failure gracefully

    jeffmahoney authored Linus Torvalds committed
    If an external device is used for a journal, by default it will use the
    entire device.  The reiserfs journal code allocates structures per journal
    block when it mounts the file system.  If the journal device is too large,
    and memory cannot be allocated for the structures, it will continue and
    ultimately panic when it can't pull one off the free list.
    
    This patch handles the allocation failure gracefully and prints an error
    message at mount time.
    
    Changes: Updated error message to be more descriptive to the user.
    
    Discussed and approved on ReiserFS Mailing List, Nov 28.

    [PATCH] Fix crash when ptrace poking hugepage areas

    dgibson authored Linus Torvalds committed
    set_page_dirty() will not cope with being handed a page * which is part of
    a compound page, but not the master page in that compound page.  This case
    can occur via access_process_vm() if you attemp to write to another
    process's hugepage memory area using ptrace() (causing an oops or hang).
    
    This patch fixes the bug by only calling set_page_dirty() from
    access_process_vm() if the page is not a compound page.  We already use a
    similar fix in bio_set_pages_dirty() for the case of direct io to
    hugepages.

    The uid_t and gid_t fields appear to present a 32/64-bit userspace/kernel

    This patch addresses the problem by fixing the size to the largest size for
    uid_t/gid_t used in the kernel.  This preserves the total size of the event
    structure while ensuring that the layouts of the ID change event match in
    32 and 64-bit kernels and applications.

    This fixes the arch/powerpc code by adding preempt_disable/enable,

    than having that code repeated in three places.
