    [SPARC64]: Fix UltraSPARC-III fallout from membar changes.

    The membar changes made the size of __cheetah_flush_tlb_pending
    grow by one instruction, but the boot-time code patching was
    not updated to match.

    [PATCH] kprobes: fix namespace problem and sparc64 build

    rustylynch authored Linus Torvalds committed
    The following renames arch_init, a kprobes function for performing any
    architecture specific initialization, to arch_init_kprobes in order to
    cleanup the namespace.
    Also, this patch adds arch_init_kprobes to sparc64 to fix the sparc64 kprobes
    build from the last return probe patch.

    Eugene Surovegin authored Linus Torvalds committed
    …GX setup
    Add explicit disabling of 440GP IRQ compatibility mode when configuring
    440GX interrupt controller.  This helps when board firmware for some reason
    uses this compatibility mode and leaves it enabled.  It breaks 440GX
    interrupt code because it assumes native 440GX IRQ mode.  People seems to
    be continuously bitten by this.

  5. [PATCH] ppc32: stop misusing NTP's time_offset value

    john stultz authored Linus Torvalds committed
    As part of my timeofday rework, I've been looking at the NTP code and I
    noticed that the PPC architecture is apparently misusing the NTP's
    time_offset (it is a terrible name!) value as some form of timezone offset.
    This could cause problems when time_offset changed by the NTP code.  This
    patch changes the PPC code so it uses a more clear local variable:

  6. [PATCH] ppc32: add Freescale MPC885ADS board support

    Andrei Konovalov authored Linus Torvalds committed
    This patch adds the Freescale MPC86xADS board support.  The supported
    devices are SMC UART and 10Mbit ethernet on SCC1.
    The manual for the board says that it "is compatible with the MPC8xxFADS
    for software point of view".  That's why this patch extends FADS instead of
    introducing a new platform.
    FEC is not supported as the "combined FCC/FEC ethernet driver" driver by
    Pantelis Antoniou should replace the current FEC driver.

    [TCP]: Never TSO defer under periods of congestion.

    davem330 authored
    Congestion window recover after loss depends upon the fact
    that if we have a full MSS sized frame at the head of the
    send queue, we will send it.  TSO deferral can defeat the
    ACK clocking necessary to exit cleanly from recovery.

    [TCP]: Move to new TSO segmenting scheme.

    davem330 authored
    Make TSO segment transmit size decisions at send time not earlier.
    The basic scheme is that we try to build as large a TSO frame as
    possible when pulling in the user data, but the size of the TSO frame
    output to the card is determined at transmit time.
    This is guided by tp->xmit_size_goal.  It is always set to a multiple
    of MSS and tells sendmsg/sendpage how large an SKB to try and build.
    Later, tcp_write_xmit() and tcp_push_one() chop up the packet if
    necessary and conditions warrant.  These routines can also decide to
    "defer" in order to wait for more ACKs to arrive and thus allow larger
    TSO frames to be emitted.
    A general observation is that TSO elongates the pipe, thus requiring a
    larger congestion window and larger buffering especially at the sender
    side.  Therefore, it is important that applications 1) get a large
    enough socket send buffer (this is accomplished by our dynamic send
    buffer expansion code) 2) do large enough writes.

    [TCP]: Fix send-side cpu utiliziation regression.

    davem330 authored
    Only put user data purely to pages when doing TSO.
    The extra page allocations cause two problems:
    1) Add the overhead of the page allocations themselves.
    2) Make us do small user copies when we get to the end
       of the TCP socket cache page.
    It is still beneficial to purely use pages for TSO,
    so we will do it for that case.

    [TCP]: Eliminate redundant computations in tcp_write_xmit().

    davem330 authored
    tcp_snd_test() is run for every packet output by a single
    call to tcp_write_xmit(), but this is not necessary.
    For one, the congestion window space needs to only be
    calculated one time, then used throughout the duration
    of the loop.
    This cleanup also makes experimenting with different TSO
    packetization schemes much easier.

    [TCP]: Break out tcp_snd_test() into it's constituent parts.

    davem330 authored
    tcp_snd_test() does several different things, use inline
    functions to express this more clearly.
    1) It initializes the TSO count of SKB, if necessary.
    2) It performs the Nagle test.
    3) It makes sure the congestion window is adhered to.
    4) It makes sure SKB fits into the send window.
    This cleanup also sets things up so that things like the
    available packets in the congestion window does not need
    to be calculated multiple times by packet sending loops
    such as tcp_write_xmit().

    [TCP]: Fix __tcp_push_pending_frames() 'nonagle' handling.

    davem330 authored
    'nonagle' should be passed to the tcp_snd_test() function
    as 'TCP_NAGLE_PUSH' if we are checking an SKB not at the
    tail of the write_queue.  This is because Nagle does not
    apply to such frames since we cannot possibly tack more
    data onto them.
    However, while doing this __tcp_push_pending_frames() makes
    all of the packets in the write_queue use this modified
    'nonagle' value.
    Fix the bug and simplify this function by just calling
    tcp_write_xmit() directly if sk_send_head is non-NULL.
    As a result, we can now make tcp_data_snd_check() just call
    tcp_push_pending_frames() instead of the specialized

    davem330 authored
    The tcp_cwnd_validate() function should only be invoked
    if we actually send some frames, yet __tcp_push_pending_frames()
    will always invoke it.  tcp_write_xmit() does the call for us,
    so the call here can simply be removed.
    Also, tcp_write_xmit() can be marked static.

    [TCP]: Fix quick-ack decrementing with TSO.

    davem330 authored
    On each packet output, we call tcp_dec_quickack_mode()
    if the ACK flag is set.  It drops tp->ack.quick until
    it hits zero, at which time we deflate the ATO value.
    When doing TSO, we are emitting multiple packets with
    ACK set, so we should decrement tp->ack.quick that many
    Note that, unlike this case, tcp_enter_cwr() should not
    take the tcp_skb_pcount(skb) into consideration.  That
    function, one time, readjusts tp->snd_cwnd and moves
    into TCP_CA_CWR state.

    [TCP]: Simplify SKB data portion allocation with NETIF_F_SG.

    davem330 authored
    The ideal and most optimal layout for an SKB when doing
    scatter-gather is to put all the headers at skb->data, and
    all the user data in the page array.
    This makes SKB splitting and combining extremely simple,
    especially before a packet goes onto the wire the first
    So, when sk_stream_alloc_pskb() is given a zero size, make
    sure there is no skb_tailroom().  This is achieved by applying
    SKB_DATA_ALIGN() to the header length used here.
    Next, make select_size() in TCP output segmentation use a
    length of zero when NETIF_F_SG is true on the outgoing

    - rt_check_expire() fixes (an overflow occured if size of the hash

    route caches, and a standard HZ value of 1000.
    With default values, ie ip_rt_gc_interval = 60*HZ = 60000 ;
    the loop count :
         for (t = ip_rt_gc_interval << rt_hash_log; t >= 0;
    overflows (t is a 31 bit value) as soon rt_hash_log is >= 16  (65536
    slots in route cache hash table).
    In this case, rt_check_expire() does nothing at all
