    sparc: Fix fork/clone/vfork system call restart.

    davem330 authored
    We clobber %i1 as well as %i0 for these system calls,
    because they give two return values.
    
    Therefore, on error, we have to restore %i1 properly
    or else the restart explodes since it uses the wrong
    arguments.
    
    This fixes glibc's nptl/tst-eintr1.c testcase.

    x86: fix PAE pmd_bad bootup warning

    Hugh Dickins authored torvalds committed
    Fix warning from pmd_bad() at bootup on a HIGHMEM64G HIGHPTE x86_32.
    
    That came from 9fc3411 x86: debug pmd_bad();
    but we understand now that the typecasting was wrong for PAE in the previous
    version: pagetable pages above 4GB looked bad and stopped Arjan from booting.
    
    And revert that cded932 x86: fix pmd_bad
    and pud_bad to support huge pages.  It was the wrong way round: we shouldn't
    weaken every pmd_bad and pud_bad check to let huge pages slip through - in
    part they check that we _don't_ have a huge page where it's not expected.
    
    Put the x86 pmd_bad() and pud_bad() definitions back to what they have long
    been: they can be improved (x86_32 should use PTE_MASK, to stop PAE thinking
    junk in the upper word is good; and x86_64 should follow x86_32's stricter
    comparison, to stop thinking any subset of required bits is good); but that
    should be a later patch.
    
    Fix Hans' good observation that follow_page() will never find pmd_huge()
    because that would have already failed the pmd_bad test: test pmd_huge in
    between the pmd_none and pmd_bad tests.  Tighten x86's pmd_huge() check?
    No, once it's a hugepage entry, it can get quite far from a good pmd: for
    example, PROT_NONE leaves it with only ACCESSED of the KERN_PGTABLE bits.
    
    However... though follow_page() contains this and another test for huge
    pages, so it's nice to keep it working on them, where does it actually get
    called on a huge page?  get_user_pages() checks is_vm_hugetlb_page(vma) to
    to call alternative hugetlb processing, as does unmap_vmas() and others.

  7. [PATCH] fix SMP ordering hole in fcntl_setlk()

    Al Viro authored
    fcntl_setlk()/close() race prevention has a subtle hole - we need to
    make sure that if we *do* have an fcntl/close race on SMP box, the
    access to descriptor table and inode->i_flock won't get reordered.
    
    As it is, we get STORE inode->i_flock, LOAD descriptor table entry vs.
    STORE descriptor table entry, LOAD inode->i_flock with not a single
    lock in common on both sides.  We do have BKL around the first STORE,
    but check in locks_remove_posix() is outside of BKL and for a good
    reason - we don't want BKL on common path of close(2).
    
    Solution is to hold ->file_lock around fcheck() in there; that orders
    us wrt removal from descriptor table that preceded locks_remove_posix()
    on close path and we either come first (in which case eviction will be
    handled by the close side) or we'll see the effect of close and do
    eviction ourselves.  Note that even though it's read-only access,
    we do need ->file_lock here - rcu_read_lock() won't be enough to
    order the things.

    pata_atiixp: Don't disable

    Alan-Cox authored Jeff Garzik committed
    A couple of distributions (Fedora, Ubuntu) were having weird problems with the
    ATI IXP series PATA controllers being reported as simplex.  At the heart of
    the problem is that both distros ignored the recommendations to load pata_acpi
    and ata_generic *AFTER* specific host drivers.
    
    The underlying cause however is that if you D3 and then D0 an ATI IXP it
    helpfully throws away some configuration and won't let you rewrite it.
    
    Add checks to ata_generic and pata_acpi to pin ATIIXP devices.  Possibly the
    real answer here is to quirk them and pin them, but right now we can't do that
    before they've been pcim_enable()'d by a driver.
    
    I'm indebted to David Gero for this.  His bug report not only reported the
    problem but identified the cause correctly and he had tested the right values
    to prove what was going on

    sata_inic162x: use IDMA for ATAPI commands

    htejun authored Jeff Garzik committed
    Use IDMA for ATAPI commands.  Write and some misc commands time out
    when executed using ATAPI_PROT_DMA but ATAPI_PROT_PIO works fine.  As
    PIO is driven by DMA too, it doesn't make any noticeable difference
    for native SATA devices.  inic_check_atapi_dma() is implemented to
    force PIO for those ATAPI commands.
    
    After this change, sata_inic162x issues all commands using IDMA.

    sata_inic162x: use IDMA for ATA_PROT_DMA

    The modified driver on initio site has enough clue on how to use IDMA.
    Use IDMA for ATA_PROT_DMA.
    
    * LBA48 now works as long as it uses DMA (LBA48 devices still aren't
      allowed as it can destroy data if PIO is used for any reason).
    
    * No need to mask IRQs for read DMAs as IDMA_DONE is properly raised
      after transfer to memory is actually completed.  There will be some
      spurious interrupts but host_intr will handle it correctly and
      manipulating port IRQ mask interacts badly with the other port for
      some reason, so command type dependent port IRQ masking is not used
      anymore.

    sata_inic162x: update TF read handling

    htejun authored Jeff Garzik committed
    inic162x can't reliably read back TF or at least we don't know how to
    do it yet.  The only values which seem reliable are status and error.
    This patch updates access to TF.
    
    * implement inic_tf_read() which reads the TF area in mmio area
    
    * implement custom inic_qc_fill_rtf() which only returns true if
      status indicates device error.  it'll be returning bogus addresses
      for device errors but it'll be able to report why it failed at
      least.
    
    * implement custom inic_check_ready() and use ata_wait_after_reset()
      instead of the SFF version.
    
    * use inic_tf_read() for classification.
    
    This is not perfect but it fixes hotplug detection failure and at
    least makes the driver report 0's instead of random garbages while
    reporting valid status and error for device errors.

  23. sata_mv NCQ-EH for FIS-based switching

    Mark Lord authored Jeff Garzik committed
    Convert sata_mv's EH for FIS-based switching (FBS) over to the
    sequence recommended by Marvell.  This enables us to catch/analyze
    multiple failed links on a port-multiplier when using NCQ.
    
    To do this, we clear the ERR_DEV bit in the EDMA Halt-Conditions register,
    so that the EDMA engine doesn't self-disable on the first NCQ error.
    
    Our EH code sets the MV_PP_FLAG_DELAYED_EH flag to prevent new commands
    being queued while we await completion of all outstanding NCQ commands
    on all links of the failed PM.
    
    The SATA Test Control register tells us which links have failed,
    so we must only wait for any other active links to finish up
    before we stop the EDMA and run the .error_handler afterward.
    
    The patch also includes skeleton code for handling of non-NCQ FBS operation.
    This is more for documentation purposes right now, as that mode is not yet
    enabled in sata_mv.

  24. sata_mv delayed eh handling

    Mark Lord authored Jeff Garzik committed
    Introduce a new "delayed error handling" mechanism in sata_mv,
    to enable us to eventually deal with multiple simultaneous NCQ
    failures on a single host link when a PM is present.
    
    This involves a port flag (MV_PP_FLAG_DELAYED_EH) to prevent new
    commands being queued, and a pmp bitmap to indicate which pmp links
    had NCQ errors.
    
    The new mv_pmp_error_handler() uses those values to invoke
    ata_eh_analyze_ncq_error() on each failed link, prior to freezing
    the port and passing control to sata_pmp_error_handler().
    
    This is based upon a strategy suggested by Tejun.
    
    For now, we just implement the delayed mechanism.
    The next patch in this series will add the multiple-NCQ EH code
    to take advantage of it.

    Fix things so that libata-eh can attempt a READ_LOG_EXT_10H
    in response to a failed NCQ command, by just doing a local
    mv_eh_freeze() rather than ata_port_freeze().
    
    This will now fully handle NCQ errors much of the time,
    but more fixes are needed for FBS/PMP, and for certain chip errata.

  29. sata_mv rearrange mv_config_fbs

    Mark Lord authored Jeff Garzik committed
    Rearrange mv_config_fbs() to more closely follow the (corrected) datasheet
    recommendations for NCQ and FIS-based switching (FBS).
    
    Also, maintain a port flag to let us know when FBS is enabled.
    We will make more use of that flag later in this patch series.
