  2. [PATCH] EFI x86: pass firmware call parameters on the stack

    Frédéric Riss committed with Linus Torvalds
    When calling into the EFI firmware, the parameters need to be passed on
    the stack. The recent change to use -mregparm=3 breaks x86 EFI support.
    This patch is needed to allow the new Intel-based Macs to suspend to ram
    (efi.get_time is called during the suspend phase).

    John Keller committed with Linus Torvalds
    The SN Altix platform does not conform to the IOSAPIC IRQ routing model.
    Add code in acpi_unregister_gsi() to check if (acpi_irq_model ==
    ACPI_IRQ_MODEL_PLATFORM) and return.
    Due to an oversight, this code was not added previously when
    similar code was added to acpi_register_gsi().

  7. [PATCH] kexec: Avoid migration of already disabled irqs (ia64)

    Magnus Damm committed with Linus Torvalds
    This patch fixes up ia64 kexec support for HP rx2620 hardware.  It does
    this by skipping migration of already disabled irqs.  This is most likely a
    problem on other ia64 platforms as well, but I've only been able to
    reproduce it on one machine so far.
    The full story is that handle_bad_irq() gets invoked before starting the
    new kernel without this patch.  This seems to happen when fixup_irqs()
    calls generic_handle_irq() on already migrated (and disabled) irqs.  So by
    avoiding migration of disabled irqs we stay away of handle_bad_irq().
    The code has been tested on three different ia64 machines, all with good
    results.  It is possible to trigger the same bug by offlining a processor
    using echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/online.

    See report:
    flush_workqueue() is not allowed to be called in the softirq context.
    However, aio_complete() called from I/O interrupt can potentially call
    put_ioctx with last ref count on ioctx and triggers bug.  It is simply
    incorrect to perform ioctx freeing from aio_complete.
    The bug is trigger-able from a race between io_destroy() and aio_complete().
    A possible scenario:
    cpu0                               cpu1
    io_destroy                         aio_complete
      wait_for_all_aios {                __aio_put_req
         ...                                 ctx->reqs_active--;
         if (!ctx->reqs_active)
                                              bam! Bug trigger!
    The real problem is that the condition check of ctx->reqs_active in
    wait_for_all_aios() is incorrect that access to reqs_active is not
    being properly protected by spin lock.
    This patch adds that protective spin lock, and at the same time removes
    all duplicate ref counting for each kiocb as reqs_active is already used
    as a ref count for each active ioctx.  This also ensures that buggy call
    to flush_workqueue() in softirq context is eliminated.

  11. [SCSI] sd: udev accessing an uninitialized scsi_disk field results in…

    Nagendra Singh Tomar committed with James Bottomley
    … a crash
    	sd_probe() calls class_device_add() even before initializing the
    sdkp->device variable. class_device_add() eventually results in the user mode
    udev program to be called. udev program can read the the allow_restart
    attribute of the newly created scsi device. This is resulting in a crash as
    the show function for allow_restart (i.e sd_show_allow_restart) returns the
    attribute value by reading the sdkp->device->allow_restart variable. As the
    sdkp->device is not initialized before calling the user mode hotplug helper,
    this results in a crash.
    	The patch below solves it by calling class_device_add() only after the
    necessary fields in the scsi_disk structure are initialized properly.

    ahci/pata_jmicron: fix JMicron quirk

    htejun committed with Jeff Garzik
    For all JMicrons except for 361 and 368, AHCI mode enable bits in the
    Control(1) should be set.  This used to be done in both ahci and
    pata_jmicron but while moving programming to PCI quirk, it was removed
    from ahci part while still left in pata_jmicron.
    The implemented JMicron PCI quirk was incorrect in that it didn't
    program AHCI mode enable bits.  If pata_jmicron is loaded first and
    programs those bits, the ahci ports work; otherwise, ahci device
    detection fails miserably.
    This patch makes JMicron PCI quirk clear SATA IDE mode bits and set
    AHCI mode bits and remove the respective part from pata_jmicron.

    It's not wrong, but it's not right either, and everybody seems to agree
    that the right fix is probably to do the ccr3 write after the ccr4 one

    The old 2.6.19 code was insane, and basically didn't change ccr4 at all
    (even though it certainly looks like it was the *intent* to do so).  So
    let's revert the change that may fix things, just because it's not what
    was actually ever tested when the code was written, even if it _was_ the
    There's a discussion on that was
