Wow, this has come a long way since I looked at the patches last
year, good work!

I've gone through the complete patch again now, and these are the
issues I've found in it. None of these are show-stoppers and I'd
like to see it all go in during the next merge window. There should
be enough time until then to address these points:

In general, please put EXPORT_SYMBOL lines below the definition
of the symbol itself. This list of exports should only be used
for symbols that come from assembly files.

You should probably also think about whether some of them are
better done as EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL.

The last line here has trailing whitespace. While this gets automatically
removed by akpm's scripts, you're normally better off not adding it
in the first place, because it may cause your follow-on patches not
to apply, aside from being wrong to start with.

It might be nicer to make this

for (;;)
asm volatile ("idle");

Otherwise you end up burning CPU cycles after a halt without
any particular need.

This detection seems to me like a strange thing to do in setup_arch().
It should be possible to do this much later, at a point where the system
is much less fragile and e.g. printk works. It could even be moved into
some place in the mtd code itself, since other architectures might want
to do the same thing.

I think you should try to avoid the special-case stuff here. You can
have CONFIG_NR_CPUS in Kconfig set dependent on CONFIG_BF561 and change
the code here (and similarly in other places) to

static struct cpu cpu[NR_CPUS];
static int __init topology_init(void)
{
int i;
for (i=0; i< NR_CPUS; i++) {
register_cpu(&cpu[i], i);
return 0;

I count 6 levels of indentation, which severely limits readability,
especially when you have terms this complex in the last level.
Please try to split up functions like this into smaller units.

This comment is probably outdated.

this extern should be in a header.

The table here probably gets converted by gcc into a lookup table, but
I think it would be clearer to make that explicit and force the table
here with something like:

static void trap_breakpoint(struct pt_regs *fp, siginfo_t *info,
unsigned int trapnr)
{
info->si_code = TRAP_ILLTRAP;
CHK_DEBUGGER_TRAP_MAYBE();
if (fp->ipend & 0xffc0)
return 0;
return SIGTRAP;
}
#ifdef CONFIG_KGDB
static void trap_kgdb(struct pt_regs *fp, siginfo_t *info,
unsigned int trapnr)
{
info->si_code = TRAP_ILLTRAP;
CHK_DEBUGGER_TRAP();
return SIGTRAP;
}
#endif
static void (traps[])(struct pt_regs *fp, siginfo_t *info,
unsigned int trapnr) = {
[VEC_EXCPT01] &trap_breakpoint, /* 0x01 - userspace gdb breakpoint */
#ifdef CONFIG_KGDB
[VEC_EXCPT02] &trap_kgdb, /* gdb connection */
#endif
...
};
asmlinkage void trap_c(struct pt_regs *fp)
{
...
if (trapnr > 0x3f)
goto error;
if (!traps[trapnr])
goto out;
ret = traps[trapno](fp, &info, trapnr);
if (!ret)
goto out;
...
That should make sure you get the efficient trap handling almost and might
even
save some code space (you'd have to try that).

I'm curious: In your dual-core bf561, don't you actually need to implement
something that maintains atomicity across cores rather than just across
processes?

For the non-L1 case, is there actually anything specific to blackfin in
this code? I wonder if we should instead have a totally generic version
of that in lib/csum.c for those architectures that don't want their
own optimizations for this.

This array reminds me of the bad old days when all initialization functions
had to be called from a common function. Normally I don't like to recommend
using section magic for anything, but in this case I guess you'd be
better off if you just do your own thing here, like:

#define BFIN_PLATFORM_DEVICE(name) struct platform_device name \
__attribute((section("initdata.platformdev")))

then declare your platform devices in the respective driver, like

static BFIN_PLATFORM_DEVICE(rtc_device) = {
...
};
and loop through the new section like you do for the initcalls.

This looks wrong in a number of aspects. Are there other things
stored in the flash so you can make this a more general flash
abstraction? Is there more than one driver using this at all?
If not, it should probably be part of the driver, with the
exact address being a compile-time constant for that driver.

It should probably also use bfin_readXX instead direct dereferences.

Why volatile? It probably does not what you intended, maybe it should
be atomic_t instead.

The implementation of the atomic_t type looks very generic. Maybe it could
be moved to asm-generic/atomic-irqdisable.h or similar to be shared by
all architectures without atomic operations.

How does this fit in with the generic SPI code? Does it duplicate stuff
from there, or do you use it?

same as for the atomic header, this could become generic.

it would be nice if you could convert these to inline functions

You might want to maintain the current variable in the L1 memory, but
probably that difference it not measurable.

Please don't define your own assert() functions, in the kernel we have

In general, you should be careful not to mix in-kernel declarations with
user-visible parts. In this case, the ioctl definitions need to be exported
via 'make headers_install', while the function declarations clearly are
not useful for user space and should therefore be inside of
'#ifdef __KERNEL__'. You should then list this file as 'unifdef-y' in the
Kbuild file.

This looks bogus, I don't think you implement personalities.

They should probably be inline functions.

These look like another good candidate for an asm-generic version.

This functions should probably be renamed. Anything that starts with
'sys_' is normally a system call.

I remember that we have discussed these macro abstractions before, but don't
recall the result of the discussion. You have around 5000 such macros,
and I still think it's not a helpful abstraction. It is much more common
for device drivers to just use the read/write accessors directly. IIRC
the objections that were raised (and my replies to them) were roughly:

> the driver writer doesn't want to know the size of the variable, and
> if it changes, they need to change every instance in the code, not
> just the macro.

A driver writer should better know the type of variable he is changing,
e.g. because of the type he passes in and out. Also, hardware registers
don't suddenly change in size.

If there is a bug in the hardware, the workaround belongs into the
driver. You can then still define a special inline function to
access that particular register.
