  1. arch/tile: don't validate CROSS_COMPILE needlessly

    cmetcalf-tilera committed Aug 15, 2010
    With this change, the arch/tile Makefile will only check for a valid
    combination of CROSS_COMPILE vs "uname -m" for a few common targets
    that are typically the ones we get wrong (vmlinux, all, and modules).
    The change handles the case of an empty "make" goal like "make all".

  2. mm: fix up some user-visible effects of the stack guard page

    torvalds committed Aug 15, 2010
    This commit makes the stack guard page somewhat less visible to user
    space. It does this by:
    
     - not showing the guard page in /proc/<pid>/maps
    
       It looks like lvm-tools will actually read /proc/self/maps to figure
       out where all its mappings are, and effectively do a specialized
       "mlockall()" in user space.  By not showing the guard page as part of
       the mapping (by just adding PAGE_SIZE to the start for grows-up
       pages), lvm-tools ends up not being aware of it.
    
     - by also teaching the _real_ mlock() functionality not to try to lock
       the guard page.
    
       That would just expand the mapping down to create a new guard page,
       so there really is no point in trying to lock it in place.
    
    It would perhaps be nice to show the guard page specially in
    /proc/<pid>/maps (or at least mark grow-down segments some way), but
    let's not open ourselves up to more breakage by user space from programs
    that depends on the exact deails of the 'maps' file.
    
    Special thanks to Henrique de Moraes Holschuh for diving into lvm-tools
    source code to see what was going on with the whole new warning.

  7. ALSA: sound/usb/format: silence uninitialized variable warnings

    error27 committed with tiwai Aug 14, 2010
    Gcc complains that ret might be used uninitialized:
    
    sound/usb/format.c: In function ‘snd_usb_parse_audio_format’:
    sound/usb/format.c:354: warning: ‘ret’ may be used uninitialized in this function
    sound/usb/format.c:354: note: ‘ret’ was declared here
    sound/usb/format.c:414: warning: ‘ret’ may be used uninitialized in this function
    sound/usb/format.c:414: note: ‘ret’ was declared here
    
    I suppose it could be uninitialized if there is ever a UAC_VERSION_3
    released. Anyway this patch is worthwhile if only to silence the gcc
    warning.

    Together with the runtime custom method mechanism,
    we can debug AML code problems without rebuilding the kernel.
