    ACPI: fix Medion _PRT quirk (use "ISA_", not "ISA")

    This fixes the builtin RTL8139 NIC on the Medion MD9580-F laptop.  The
    BIOS reports the interrupt routing incorrectly.  I recently added a
    quirk to work around this, and this patch fixes a typo in the quirk.
    
    We pad every ACPI pathname component to four characters, so ".ISA." will
    never match anything.  We need ".ISA_." instead.
    
    Thank you Johann-Nikolaus Andreae <johann-nikolaus.andreae@nacs.de>
    for patiently testing this patch.

    While backporting 72dc67a, a gfn_to_page()
    call was duplicated instead of moved (due to an unrelated patch not being
    present in mainline).  This caused a page reference leak, resulting in a
    fairly massive memory leak.
    
    Fix by removing the extraneous gfn_to_page() call.

  9. KVM: VMX: Restore tss even on x86_64

    The vmx hardware state restore restores the tss selector and base address, but
    not its length.  Usually, this does not matter since most of the tss contents
    is within the default length of 0x67.  However, if a process is using ioperm()
    to grant itself I/O port permissions, an additional bitmap within the tss,
    but outside the default length is consulted.  The effect is that the process
    will receive a SIGSEGV instead of transparently accessing the port.
    
    Fix by restoring the tss length.  Note that i386 had this working already.
    
    Closes bugzilla 10246.

    PCI: iova: lockdep false alarm fix

    lockdep goes off on the iova copy_reserved_iova() because it and a function
    it calls grabs locks in the from, and the to of the copy operation.
    
    The function grab locks of the same lock classes triggering the warning.  The
    first lock grabbed is for the constant reserved areas that is never accessed
    after early boot.  Technically you could do without grabbing the locks for the
    "from" structure its copying reserved areas from.
    
    But dropping the from locks to me looks wrong, even though it would be ok.
    
    The affected code only runs in early boot as its setting up the DMAR
    engines.
    
    This patch gives the reserved_ioval_list locks special lockdep classes.

    USB: ehci: stop vt6212 bus hogging

    The VIA VT6212 defaults to only waiting 1us between passes over EHCI's
    async ring, which hammers PCI badly ... and by preventing other devices
    from accessing the bus, causes problems like drops in IDE throughput,
    a problem that's been bugging users of those chips for several years.
    
    A (partial) datasheet for this chip eventually turned up, letting us
    see how to make it use a VIA-specific register to switch over to the
    the normal 10us value instead, as suggested by the EHCI specification
    Solution noted by Lev A. Melnikovsky.
    
    It's not clear whether this register exists on other VIA chips; we
    know that it's ineffective on the vt8235.  So this patch only applies
    to chips that seem to be incarnations of the (discrete) vt6212.

  30. sata_promise: fix hardreset hotplug events, take 2

    A Promise SATA controller will signal hotplug events when a hard
    reset (COMRESET) is done on a port. These events aren't masked by
    the driver, and the unexpected interrupts will cause a sequence
    of failed reset attempts util libata's EH finally gives up.
    
    This has not been a common problem so far, but the pending libata
    hardreset-by-default changes makes it a critical issue.
    
    The solution is to disable hotplug events before a reset, and to
    reenable them afterwards. (Promise's driver does this too.)
    
    This patch adds SATA-specific versions of ->freeze() and ->thaw()
    that also disable and enable hotplug events. PATA ports continue
    to use the old versions of ->freeze() and ->thaw().
    
    Accesses to the hotplug register must be serialised via host->lock.
    We rely on ap->lock == &ap->host->lock and that libata takes this
    lock before ->freeze() and ->thaw(). Document this requirement.
    The interrupt handler is adjusted so its hotplug register accesses
    are inside the region protected by host->lock.
    
    Tested on various chips (SATA300TX4, SATA300TX2plus, SATAII150TX4,
    FastTrack TX4000) with various combinations of SATA and PATA disks,
    with and without the pending hardreset-by-default changes.

        kswapd should only wait on IO if there is IO
    
        The current kswapd (and try_to_free_pages) code has an oddity where the
        code will wait on IO, even if there is no IO in flight.  This problem is
        notable especially when the system scans through many unfreeable pages,
        causing unnecessary stalls in the VM.
    
        Additionally, tasks without __GFP_FS or __GFP_IO in the direct reclaim path
        will sleep if a significant number of pages are encountered that should be
        written out.  This gives kswapd a chance to write out those pages, while
        the direct reclaim task sleeps.
