  1. msm: Add sysfs interface for mfreq

    Add mfreq interface in sysfs.  This forces the system to use the
    maximum CPU clock on all CPU cores.
    (mfreq=1 enables, mfreq=0 disables)

  2. SLAB: Record actual last user of freed objects.

    Currently, when using CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB, we put in kfree() or
    kmem_cache_free() as the last user of free objects, which is not
    very useful, so change it to the caller of those functions instead.

  3. mm: notifier_from_errno() cleanup

    While looking at some other notifier callbacks I noticed this code could
    use a simple cleanup.
    
    notifier_from_errno() no longer needs the if (ret)/else conditional.  That
    same conditional is now done in notifier_from_errno().

  1. module: Sort exported symbols

    This patch places every exported symbol in its own section
    (i.e. "___ksymtab+printk").  Thus the linker will use its SORT() directive
    to sort and finally merge all symbol in the right and final section
    (i.e. "__ksymtab").
    
    The symbol prefixed archs use an underscore as prefix for symbols.
    To avoid collision we use a different character to create the temporary
    section names.
    
    This work was supported by a hardware donation from the CE Linux Forum.

  2. kbuild: Fix passing -Wno-* options to gcc 4.4+

    Starting with 4.4, gcc will happily accept -Wno-<anything> in the
    cc-option test and complain later when compiling a file that has some
    other warning. This rather unexpected behavior is intentional as per
    http://gcc.gnu.org/PR28322, so work around it by testing for support of
    the opposite option (without the no-). Introduce a new Makefile function
    cc-disable-warning that does this and update two uses of cc-option in
    the toplevel Makefile.

    from the previous level.

  5. kbuild: implement several W= levels

    Building a kernel with "make W=1" produces far too much noise to be
    useful.
    
    Divide the warning options in three groups:
    
        W=1 - warnings that may be relevant and does not occur too often
        W=2 - warnings that occur quite often but may still be relevant
        W=3 - the more obscure warnings, can most likely be ignored
    
    When building the whole kernel, those levels produce:
    
    W=1 - 4859 warnings
    W=2 - 1394 warnings
    W=3 - 86666 warnings
    
    respectively. Warnings have been counted with Geert's script at
    
    http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/geert/linux-log/linux-log-summary.pl
    
    Many warnings occur from .h files so fixing one file may have a nice
    effect on the total number of warnings.
    
    With these changes I am actually tempted to try W=1 now and then.
    Previously there was just too much noise.
    
    Borislav:
    
    - make the W= levels exclusive
    - move very noisy and making little sense for the kernel warnings to W=3
    - drop -Woverlength-strings due to useless warning message
    - copy explanatory text for the different warning levels to 'make help'
    - recount warnings per level

  6. kbuild: Add extra gcc checks

    Add a 'W=1' Makefile switch which adds additional checking per build
    object.
    
    The idea behind this option is targeted at developers who, in the
    process of writing their code, want to do the occasional
    
    make W=1 [target.o]
    
    and let gcc do more extensive code checking for them. Then, they
    could eyeball the output for valid gcc warnings about various
    bugs/discrepancies which are not reported during the normal build
    process.

  5. rcu: introduce kfree_rcu()

    Many rcu callbacks functions just call kfree() on the base structure.
    These functions are trivial, but their size adds up, and furthermore
    when they are used in a kernel module, that module must invoke the
    high-latency rcu_barrier() function at module-unload time.
    
    The kfree_rcu() function introduced by this commit addresses this issue.
    Rather than encoding a function address in the embedded rcu_head
    structure, kfree_rcu() instead encodes the offset of the rcu_head
    structure within the base structure.  Because the functions are not
    allowed in the low-order 4096 bytes of kernel virtual memory, offsets
    up to 4095 bytes can be accommodated.  If the offset is larger than
    4095 bytes, a compile-time error will be generated in __kfree_rcu().
    If this error is triggered, you can either fall back to use of call_rcu()
    or rearrange the structure to position the rcu_head structure into the
    first 4096 bytes.
    
    Note that the allowable offset might decrease in the future, for example,
    to allow something like kmem_cache_free_rcu().
    
    The new kfree_rcu() function can replace code as follows:
    
    	call_rcu(&p->rcu, simple_kfree_callback);
    
    where "simple_kfree_callback()" might be defined as follows:
    
    	void simple_kfree_callback(struct rcu_head *p)
    	{
    		struct foo *q = container_of(p, struct foo, rcu);
    
    		kfree(q);
    	}
    
    with the following:
    
    	kfree_rcu(&p->rcu, rcu);
    
    Note that the "rcu" is the name of a field in the structure being
    freed.  The reason for using this rather than passing in a pointer
    to the base structure is that the above approach allows better type
    checking.
