  1. Avoid using variable-length arrays in kernel/sys.c

    The size is always valid, but variable-length arrays generate worse code
    for no good reason (unless the function happens to be inlined and the
    compiler sees the length for the simple constant it is).
    
    Also, there seems to be some code generation problem on POWER, where
    Henrik Bakken reports that register r28 can get corrupted under some
    subtle circumstances (interrupt happening at the wrong time?).  That all
    indicates some seriously broken compiler issues, but since variable
    length arrays are bad regardless, there's little point in trying to
    chase it down.
    
    "Just don't do that, then".

  2. ARM: 7122/1: localtimer: add header linux/errno.h explicitly

    Per the text in  Documentation/SubmitChecklist as below, we should

    1: If you use a facility then #include the file that defines/declares
       that facility.  Don't depend on other header files pulling in ones
       that you use.
    
    Otherwise, we may run into some compiling error like the following one,
    if any file includes localtimer.h without CONFIG_LOCAL_TIMERS defined.
    
      arch/arm/include/asm/localtimer.h: In function ‘local_timer_setup’:

  6. x86, mrst: use a temporary variable for SFI irq

    SFI tables reside in RAM and should not be modified once they are
    written.  Current code went to set pentry->irq to zero which causes
    subsequent reads to fail with invalid SFI table checksum.  This will
    break kexec as the second kernel fails to validate SFI tables.
    
    To fix this we use temporary variable for irq number.

  1. hwmon: (w83627ehf) Properly report thermal diode sensors

    The w83627ehf driver is improperly reporting thermal diode sensors as
    type 2, instead of 3. This caused "sensors" and possibly other
    monitoring tools to report these sensors as "transistor" instead of
    "thermal diode".
    
    Furthermore, diode subtype selection (CPU vs. external) is only
    supported by the original W83627EHF/EHG. All later models only support
    CPU diode type, and some (NCT6776F) don't even have the register in
    question so we should avoid reading from it.

    With commit f64ad1a, "gpio/omap: cleanup _set_gpio_wakeup(), remove
    ifdefs", access to build time conditionally omitted 'suspend_wakeup'
    member of the 'gpio_bank' structure has been placed unconditionally in
    function _set_gpio_wakeup(), which is always built. This resulted in the
    driver compilation broken for certain OMAP1, i.e., non-OMAP16xx,
    configurations.
    
    Really required or not in previously excluded cases, define this
    structure member unconditionally as a fix.

  1. xfs: revert to using a kthread for AIL pushing

    Currently we have a few issues with the way the workqueue code is used to
    implement AIL pushing:
    
     - it accidentally uses the same workqueue as the syncer action, and thus
       can be prevented from running if there are enough sync actions active
       in the system.
     - it doesn't use the HIGHPRI flag to queue at the head of the queue of
       work items
    
    At this point I'm not confident enough in getting all the workqueue flags and
    tweaks right to provide a perfectly reliable execution context for AIL
    pushing, which is the most important piece in XFS to make forward progress
    when the log fills.
    
    Revert back to use a kthread per filesystem which fixes all the above issues
    at the cost of having a task struct and stack around for each mounted
    filesystem.  In addition this also gives us much better ways to diagnose
    any issues involving hung AIL pushing and removes a small amount of code.

  2. xfs: force the log if we encounter pinned buffers in .iop_pushbuf

    We need to check for pinned buffers even in .iop_pushbuf given that inode
    items flush into the same buffers that may be pinned directly due operations
    on the unlinked inode list operating directly on buffers.  To do this add a
    return value to .iop_pushbuf that tells the AIL push about this and use
    the existing log force mechanisms to unpin it.

  3. xfs: do not update xa_last_pushed_lsn for locked items

    If an item was locked we should not update xa_last_pushed_lsn and thus skip
    it when restarting the AIL scan as we need to be able to lock and write it
    out as soon as possible.  Otherwise heavy lock contention might starve AIL
    pushing too easily, especially given the larger backoff once we moved
    xa_last_pushed_lsn all the way to the target lsn.

  4. Btrfs: make sure not to defrag extents past i_size

    The btrfs file defrag code will loop through the extents and
    force COW on them.  But there is a concurrent truncate in the middle of
    the defrag, it might end up defragging the same range over and over
    again.
    
    The problem is that writepage won't go through and do anything on pages
    past i_size, so the cow won't happen, so the file will appear to still
    be fragmented.  defrag will end up hitting the same extents again and
    again.
    
    In the worst case, the truncate can actually live lock with the defrag
    because the defrag keeps creating new ordered extents which the truncate
    code keeps waiting on.
    
    The fix here is to make defrag check for i_size inside the main loop,
    instead of just once before the looping starts.

    Is caused by commit 3ae3665 ("x86-64: Rework vsyscall emulation and add
    vsyscall= parameter") - the vsyscall emulation code is not fully cooked
    yet as UML relies on some rather fragile SIGSEGV semantics.

  1. Btrfs: fix recursive auto-defrag

    Follow those steps:
    
      # mount -o autodefrag /dev/sda7 /mnt
      # dd if=/dev/urandom of=/mnt/tmp bs=200K count=1
      # sync
      # dd if=/dev/urandom of=/mnt/tmp bs=8K count=1 conv=notrunc
    
    and then it'll go into a loop: writeback -> defrag -> writeback ...
    
    It's because writeback writes [8K, 200K] and then writes [0, 8K].
    
    I tried to make writeback know if the pages are dirtied by defrag,
    but the patch was a bit intrusive. Here I simply set writeback_index
    when we defrag a file.

  5. mlx4_en: fix endianness with blue frame support

    The doorbell register was being unconditionally swapped. In x86, that
    meant it was being swapped to BE and written to the descriptor and to
    memory, depending on the case of blue frame support or writing to
    doorbell register. On PPC, this meant it was being swapped to LE and
    then swapped back to BE while writing to the register. But in the blue
    frame case, it was being written as LE to the descriptor.
    
    The fix is not to swap doorbell unconditionally, write it to the
    register as BE and convert it to BE when writing it to the descriptor.

    A couple of changes to the Tegra maintainership setup:
    
    I'm very glad to bring on Stephen Warren on board as a maintainer. The
    work he has done so far is excellent, and the fact that he works for
    Nvidia means he has long-term interest in the platform.
    
    Erik Gilling did an astounding amount of work on getting things up and
    running but has been a silent partner on the maintainership side for a
    while, and is stepping down. Thanks for your contributions so far, Erik.
    
    Finally, update the git URL since I'll take over running the main repo
    for a while.
    
    Overall maintainership model isn't changing much at this time: We'll all
    three review patches as appropriate, and one of us will collect the main
    repo (me at this time).
