> [PATCH] v4l: videodev redesign
>
>
> This patch is a redesign for videodev.[ch]. 2.5.7-pre1 has a similar
> update, the main difference is that this 2.4 version of the patch
> supports both traditional (for backward compatibility) and 2.5-like (to
> simplify backporting 2.5 drivers) registration of v4l drivers.
>
> Changes in detail:
>
> - Allow drivers to use struct file_operations directly instead of the
> read/write/mmap/poll/... function pointers in struct video_device.
> 2.5.x will drop the function pointers altogether. Dispatching to
> different drivers by minor number is done the same way soundcore.o
> handles this: swap file->f_fops at open() time.
>
> - Stop using the BKL, use a mutex to protect open,register+unregister
> calls against races.
>
> - provide a video_generic_ioctl() function which can (and should) be
> used by v4l drivers to handle copying from and to userspace.
>
> - provide video_exclusive_open/release functions which can be used by
> v4l drivers to make sure only one process at a time opens the
> device. They can be hooked directly into struct file_operations if
> some driver has nothing to initialize at open time (which is true
> for many drivers in drivers/media/radio/).

> [PATCH] boot_cpu_data corruption on SMP x86
>
> The patch below eliminates a case of boot_cpu_data corruption
> on SMP x86 machines. This was first observed on SMP Athlons,
> but it also affects SMP Intel boxes in a less serious way.
>
> When the secondary processors boot and execute head.S:checkCPUtype,
> the code performs a 32-bit write of a small constant to the
> byte-sized variable boot_cpu_data.x86 (X86 in head.S). Since the
> write is 32-bit, it also writes zeros to the following 3 bytes,
> which clobbers the x86_vendor, x86_model, and x86_mask fields
> previously set up by check_bugs()'s call to identify_cpu().
> Thus, after smp_init(), boot_cpu_data will _always_ identify
> the CPU as an Intel (X86_VENDOR_INTEL == 0 in processor.h) with
> model 0 and stepping 0.
>
> The effect in standard kernels is not catastrophic, since:
> (a) most SMP x86 boxes are Intel
> (b) most uses of x86_vendor occur before smp_init() or reference
> the SMP cpu_data[] array
> (c) most post-boot references to boot_cpu_data occur in the
> cpu_has_XXX macros which only read the x86_capability[] array
> However, third-party extensions (like my x86 performance-monitoring
> conters driver) can get seriously confused by this mis-identification.
