-- Full ChangeLog starts here --

<acme@brinquedo.oo.ps>
--------------------------------------------------------------
- remove spurious spaces and tabs at end of lines
- make sure if, while, for, switch has a space before the opening '('
- make sure no line has more than 80 chars
- move initializations to the declaration line where possible
- bitwise, logical and arithmetic operators have spaces before and after,
improving readability of complex expressions
- remove uneeded () in returns
- other minor cleanups


<acme@conectiva.com.br>
--------------------------------------------------------------
net/ipv4/arp.c:
- htons cleanups
- remove duplicated code
- apply CodingStyle


<aia21@cantab.net>
--------------------------------------------------------------
NTFS: Fix compilation on 2.5.14 ({set_,clear_,}buffer_async was renamed
to {set_,clear_,}buffer_async_read).


<akpm@zip.com.au>
--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] Fix: writing to the swap space

Ah. That's some left-over code. Reads will be OK, but writes will be
unexpectedly asynchronous. Nothing in the kernel uses that function for
writes so it didn't show up.


<anton@samba.org>
--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] acenic driver and 867 MHz G4 sound problems

Fix acenic driver


<axboe@suse.de>
--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] tcq initialization fix

Transposed the last two arguments to memset, causing a slab poisoned
kernel not to use tagging correctly... Brown paper bag stuff.


<colin@gibbs.dhs.org>
--------------------------------------------------------------
copy_mm fix:
- If dup_mmap fails we will try to destroy_context before
init_new_context occurs. Platforms with non-trivial
init_new_context can explode because of this. The fix
is to invoke init_new_context before dup_mmap.


<dalecki@evision-ventures.com>
--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] 2.5.14 IDE 55

- Update HPT374 driver carried over from 2.4.xx series by Andrew Morton.
Resync it with the recent host chip driver changes, or better the
introduction of an API at all.

- Consolidate the handling of device ID byte order in one place.
This was spotted and patched by Bartomiej onierkiewicz.

- Eliminate CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI - it's duplicating the functionality of the
already present and fine CONFIG_PCI flag and if we are a PCI host, we are
indeed very likely to need host chip support anyway.

- Remove some redundant info about the model and channel number from
/proc/ide. Remove the binary entries not helpful to the user, and not used
by any program and redundant to corresponding ioctls.

- Properly return udma_read and udma_write values in taskfile.

- Only initialize XXX_udma to the default handlers if it has not been
initialized by the host chip initialization.

I have enabled spin lock debugging and can see that on device
flush the spin locks get wrong counts... no problems elsewher ethus
far. I will re check them next time around.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] IDE 58

- m68k fixes by Roman Zippel.

- CDROM PIO mode fix by Osamu Tamita.
(You are true "Hawk-eye" hovering over my head! Respect - and many Thanks.)

- Virtualize the udma_enable method as well to help ARM and PPC people. Please
please if you would like to have some other methods virtualized in a similar
way - just tell me or even better do it yourself at the end of ide-dma.c.
I *don't mind* patches.

- Fix the pmac code to adhere to the new API. It's supposed to work again.
However this is blind coding... I give myself 80% chances for it to work ;-).

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] 2.5.14 IDE 57

Nuke /proc/ide. For explanations why, please see the frustrated comments in the
previous change log. If one still don't see why it wasn't a good thing,
well please just take a look at the following:

Kernel size before:

text data bss dec hex filename
1716049 403968 470252 2590269 27863d vmlinux

Kernel size after:

text data bss dec hex filename
1680993 403488 470124 2554605 26faed vmlinux

2% of overall size! And this is not exactly an minimalistic setup.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] 2.5.14 IDE 56

- Push poll_timeout down from the hwgroup to the channel. We are resetting the
channel and not a whole hwgroup. This way using multiple pdc202xxx cards
should magically start to work with multiple performance and resets will no
longer lock the system.

- Updates for PDC4030 by Peter Denison <peterd@marshadder.uklinux.net>.

- Make ide_raw_taskfile don't care about request buffers. They where always
NULL.

- Port set multi mode count over from the special setting interface to
ide_raw_taskfile. Fix errors in the corresponding interrupt handler in one go
as well. It turned out that this is precisely the same code as in
task_no_data_intr, so we can nuke it altogether. And finally we have found
some problems with the set_pio_mode() command which can fail with -EBUSY -
this is in esp. probably *very* common during boot hdparm usage those days!
(OK it was masked by reportig too early that it finished... Crap Crap utter
crap it was!!!) Right now hdparm should just be extendid to properly
sync and retry on -EBUSY and everything should be fine.

And now the 1 Milion EUR question for everybody who loves to put driver
settings in to /proc:

How the hell could echo > /proc/ide/ide0/settings blah blah blah blah handle
properly cases like -EIO, -EBUSY and so on??? Having the possibility o do it
does not mean that it is a good idea to use it.

OK. After realizing the simple fact that quite a lot of low level hardware
manipulating ioctls may require assistance in usage from proper logic which is
*very* unlikely to be implemented in a bash (for me preferable still ksh) I
have made my mind up.

/proc/ide will be nuked.

- Execute the recalibration for error recovery on precisely the same request as
the one which failed.

- Remove set geometry. It's crap by means of standard specification. Because:

1. We rely on the existence of the identify command anyway.

2. This command was obsoleted *before* the identify command existed as far
as I can see.

2. I'm able to have a look at what other ATA/ATAPI drivers in the wild do:
They don't do it.

- Just call tuneproc in set_pio_mode() directly - we are already behind the rq
queue there.

- After we have uncovered the broken logics behind the whole ioctl handling we
now just have made ide_spin_wait_hwgroup() waiting for a proper somehow
longer timeout before giving up. This was previously just hiding the broken
concept of setting ioctl values through /proc/ide/ideX/settings - now it just
really helps hdparm to not to give up too early. (It shouldn't probably play
wreck havock on the global driver spin lock as well. I will look in to this
later.)

- Scrap the non necessary, to say the least, disabling of interrupts for 3,
read it again please, 3 seconds, on the local CPU inside
ide_spin_wait_hwgroup(). Spin lock handling needs checking there badly as I
see now as well...

Hey apparently any "special" requests are gone. We now have only
to deal with REQ_DEVICE_ACB and REQ_DEVICE_CMD. One of them is still too
much and will be killed.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] 2.5.14 IDE 59

Basically PCI driver handling reorganization. This is one step further
ahead toward the goal of fully modularized host chip drivers.

- Adjust ide-scsi to the new error handling. Just don't try any device
resets there.

- Add unmasking of IRQ per default to the PMac PCI code.

- Split up the crap table from ide-pci. Let the corresponding drivers do
registration of the functions they provide. This small change makes
this patch rather big.

- Hard-code the number of ports requested for DMA engines. They are always
precisely 8 on PCs. If you hove something different to deal with,
well then please just provide your own init_dma method.

- Remove the HDIO_GETGEO_BIG ioctl. Patch by Andries Brouwer. Applies
unmodified.

- Make ON_BOARD be equal 0, so we can spare ourself some typing in structure
initialization.

- Normalize the terminology in the host chip drivers. It will make spotting
the tons of common code found there later easier.

Adds error handling to request_region() calls,
and converts some old check_region() calls too.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] prefetching too far in mem copies

This patch from 2.4 makes sure we don't prefetch past the
end of a range to be copied (in case its at the end of a memrange)
i386 case looks safe already, we just weren't optimal for the last
chunk to be copied.

Andi. same change needed for x86-64.

Dave.

[PATCH] update NBD URL


--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] DMI update.

Another Sony for the apm blacklist.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] PATCH ehci -- interrupt xfer requeue

The fix basically removes a bit-complement that shouldn't have
been there. (Plus related simplification.) That changed the PID,
so that (for one example) only the first hub plug/unplug event could
work. So it's essential for anyone using high speed hubs.

I'm still not quite sure why this hasn't affected more testing, but
that's life ... :)

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] USB usbnet driver update

- generalizes/cleans keventd support to also handle
* rx stalls (and usb 2.0 transaction translator unplug)
* rx memory shortfalls (latent bug Oliver noticed)
* cleanup on device disconnect (quiesce first)
- merges Brad's patch to use the IEEE802 "locally assigned" bit
- fixes a couple minor bugs on error paths (leak, bogus diagnostic)
- updates some comments

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] PATCH 2.5.14 -- ehci misc fixes

- Report better errors, and in one case the correct one.
- Adds strategic wmb() calls
- Claims the right (scaled) ISO bandwidth
- Uses non-CVS version ID

This will likely resolve that Archos MP3 Jukebox issue, where "-104"
(-ECONNRESET) was appearing mysteriously.


<dougg@torque.net>
--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] osst update

This is the OnStream variant of the st driver that
has been in Dave's tree for some time.

The change looks like it is from Willem Riede (osst@riede.org)
and that it has been forwarded ported from lk 2.4 .

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] sg update

Here is one fix and one enhancement to the scsi generic (sg)
driver in 2.5.14
Changelog:
- off by one fix for last scatter gather element
- if possible compact kiobuf_map into scatter gather list

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] aha1542 update

This ISA scsi adapter still seems to be popular
given the number of people that supply patches
for it collected in Dave's tree.

The latest patch was from William Stinson (first item):
- request_region cleanup
- removal of old scsi error handling (leaving newer version)
- scatterlist::address replaced
- host_lock replacing io_request_lock


Doug Gilbert

P.S. This is a transfer from Dave's tree. It runs fine for
me on a dual Celeron SMP box.

[PATCH] 2.5.14: New PCI allocation code (alpha, arm, parisc) [2/2]

Summary of changes:
- alpha, arm: code related to PCI-PCI bridges from pcibios_fixup_bus()
removed - now it's generic;
- pdev_sort_resource: sort resources all together, no matter IO or memory;
- pbus_assign_resources_sorted: ditto;
- pci_bridge_check_ranges, pci_setup_bridge: changed for prefetch support;
- pbus_size_io, pbus_size_mem: core stuff; tested with randomly generated
sets of resources;
- pbus_size_bridges: pass #2 (pass #1 is PCI probing, common for all archs);
- pbus_assign_resources: pass #3.

Ivan.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] 2.5.14: New PCI allocation code (alpha, arm, parisc) [1/2]

This changes PCI resource allocation algorithm to 3 passes vs.
current 2 passes. Extra pass is used for calculation of required
size and alignment of PCI buses behind PCI-PCI bridges. After
that, in the pass #3, these buses get allocated like regular
PCI devices. This gives tighter PCI IO and memory packing -
for instance, this fixes allocation problems on certain alphas
with very small (112Mb) PCI memory range. Also, the new code
- will allow mixed approach to resource allocation:
architecture can keep BIOS settings for some devices,
and re-allocate resources for others, including improperly
initialized bridges;
- makes prefetchable ranges support much simpler;
- allows sizing of IO and memory ranges for the host
bridges, which might be very useful in some situations.

It was tested on various alphas; I haven't heard any complaints
from rmk and rth, so probably all of this is ok. :-)

Part 1:
- for all archs, 4th argument (align) added to
pcibios_align_resource (and its callers).
It's necessary because this function will be called for
bus resources as well, and in this case size != alignment.
- for several archs, dead/bogus code removed from
pcibios_fixup_pbus_ranges().

Move the IPv6 symbols into the ipv6 module

Currently, we're trying to export the IPv6 modules from netsyms.c,
which can't work when netsyms is built-in, but IPv6 is modular. Fix is to
move the IPv6 symbols to the ipv6 module. Actually, netsyms.c could use a
lot more of this kind of untangling.

Also, move exporting the secure_*v6* symbols to drivers/char/random.c,
since that's where they're defined.

The reason why things worked before is that the ipv6 module doesn't have
a EXPORT_NO_SYMBOLS directive, so _all_ of its symbols where exported by
modutils.


--------------------------------------------------------------
Documentation/kbuild/makefiles.txt polish

Some improvements to the wording by Toshiyasu Morita.

--------------------------------------------------------------
drivers/net/Makefile cleanup

Group selecting subdirs and linking them together. (Doesn't change
the link order)

--------------------------------------------------------------
Link drivers/net/* from drivers/net/Makefile

Group knowledge about building objects and linking them together
instead of splitting it between the top-level Makefile and
the per-directory Makefiles.

This change tries to keep the link order the same as it was, at least
as far as possible. One critical point is that we now link
the pcmcia / wireless netdrivers before the pcmcia subsystem.
However, the pcmcia subsystem is initialized via a late_initcall(),
so this shouldn't make a difference.

drivers/net/Makefile looks a bit long now, but that can be improved
a lot, patch yet to come.

--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: CAPI cleanup: register/release

Introduce register_appl() / release_appl() which are basically equivalent
to open()/close() for net_device's.

Remove the registered() / released() callbacks and do the work immediately
instead.

--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: CAPI cleanup

Remove unused header file.

--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: CAPI maintain driver MOD_USE_COUNT

Apart from the indentation changes, add an owner field to the hardware
driver struct and use that to automatically inc/dec the module use count
on register_appl()/release_appl()

--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: CAPI: use <linux/list.h> lists



--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: export callbacks directly

Just EXPORT_SYMBOL() the callbacks, instead of passing them to the
drivers in a struct.

--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: CAPI: alloc struct capi_ctr dynamically

First step in actually having the hardware drivers alloc this as part
of their per-controller data.

--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: CAPI: alloc struct capi_appl dynamically

First step in having the users alloc this as part of the state info
they have to maintain anyway.

--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: CAPI remove NCCI up/down notification

Applications really ought to take care of maintaing the state themselves,
instead of cheating by listening to controller private messages.

--------------------------------------------------------------
ISDN: CAPI fix new "ncci up"

There's actually two cases when a new NCCI is created:
outgoing and incoming connections (had missed the latter)

--------------------------------------------------------------
Fix compile time warning in serial.c

--------------------------------------------------------------
Fix cut'n'paste error in drivers/message/Makefile

--------------------------------------------------------------
Cleanup drivers/pcmcia/Makefile

Use the usual list-based approach. Still not too nice.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Remove PCMCIA backwards compatibility rule.

Old pcmcia-cs versions expect the pcmcia modules in
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/pcmcia, so we symlinked them for compatibility.
According to the comment, the generation of these links should have
been removed in 2.4, so it's definitely time for it to go now.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Link drivers/char/* from drivers/char/Makefile

Link the subdirs of drivers/char from drivers/char/Makefile instead the
top-level Makefile.

Link order changes slightly, shouldn't case any problems, though.

Fix drivers/char/pcmcia/Config.in.

Cleanup drivers/char/pcmcia/Makefile.

Fix rio build rules in drivers/char/Makefile.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Cleanup drivers/fusion/* build

Don't shortcut from drivers/Makefile to
drivers/message/{fusion,i2o}/Makefile, but use intermediate
drivers/message/Makefile.

Cleanup drivers/message/fusion/Config.in and get rid of unnecessary
CONFIG_FUSION_BOOT.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Cleanup drivers/pcmcia/Makefile part 2

Adding some more flexibility to Config.in (Allow for core built-in but
socket driver modular) cleans up the Makefile as well ;-)

--------------------------------------------------------------
Fix the Makefile cleanups

[PATCH] PATCH - kNFSd in 2.5.14 - Tidy up comments in expfs.c

Chris Wright <chris@wirex.com> suggested these to limit to 80
columns and such.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] PATCH - kNFSd in 2.5.14 - Two small changes to nfsd/nfssvc.c

1/ Return correct error code if nfs server creation fails
2/ Increase limit on number of nfsd threads

There is no real justification for stopping a sysadmin
from running lots and lots of nfsd threads, so we raise the
imposed limit from 128 to 8192... maybe it should just go away...

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] PATCH - kNFSd - Remove flowcontrol problems with lockd/tcp

The sunrpc/tcp layer currently allocates some resources linearly with
number of server threads. This causes problems when there are very
small numbers of threads (e.g. lockd with one thread), so this patch
adds a small constant to the number of threads before calculating
resoures to allocate.

This patch also provide proper upper-limits for the response sizes for
lockd requests, so resources are not over-allocated.

Together these resolve problems with heavy lockd load over tcp.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] PATCH - kNFSd in 2.5.14 - Add a kernel_lock in d_splice_alias

d_move wants the kernel to be locked, so
d_splice_alias now takes that lock.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] PATCH - kNFSd/FAT in 2.5.14 - Add export_operations support for FAT

This actually contains a lot of code that is never used,
as we don't currently attempt to load an inode that isn't
in cache, so the fat_get_parent is never actually reached.
However it is there (and should be right) incase some brave
soul does decide to enhance fat_get_dentry accordingly.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] PATCH - kNFSd/ext3 in 2.5.14 - export_operations support for ext3

This patch converts ext3 to use the new export_operations for
exporting a filesystem.
In particular it
- defines "ext3_get_parent" to do a lookup(".."),
- calls d_splice_alias when ext3_lookup finds something,
so that build a dcache path from the bottom up works, and
- sets sb->s_export_op to point to an (almost empty)
export_operations structure. The fact that it is mostly empty
means that the default lookup operations are used, which match the
previous approach (i.e. use iget, and then check the generation
number).

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] PATHC - kNFSd/reiserfs in 2.5.14 - Convert reisferfs to use export_operations

This patch converts reiserfs to use the new export_operations
interface for exporting a filesystem instead of the old
fh_to_dentry and dentry_to_fh.
Essentially it:

- renamed reiserfs_dentry_to_fh to reiserfs_encode_fh
- split reiserfs_fh_to_dentry into reiserfs_get_dentry
and reiserfs_decode_fh
- calls d_splice_alias from reiserfs_lookup so that building
a dcache path from the bottom works well
- addes reiserfs_get_parent to do a lookup of ".." without going
through the VFS interfaces.
- sets sb->s_export_op to be an appropriately initialised
struct export_operations

This has been tested and works.

[PATCH] fix drivers/pci/Makefile for PPC

On 32-bit PPC we don't need setup-bus.o but we do need setup-irq.o.
This patch changes drivers/pci/Makefile to reflect that.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] fix drivers/scsi/sd.c for ppc32

This patch fixes the compile errors in sd_find_target, which is only
used on 32-bit PPC systems, and changes the ifdef around from
CONFIG_PPC to CONFIG_PPC32 since ppc64 doesn't need this routine.

[PATCH] USE_STANDARD_AS_RULE in i386 arch Makefiles

In Rules.make, a comment says:

# Old makefiles define their own rules for compiling .S files,
# but these standard rules are available for any Makefile that
# wants to use them. Our plan is to incrementally convert all
# the Makefiles to these standard rules. -- rmk, mec

This patch does that for the i386 arch Makefiles.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] Directory Notification Fix

This patch fixes directory notification so that notifications get
cancelled when a process exits. This make dnotify MUCH more stable and
usable :-)


<shaggy@austin.ibm.com>
--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] Fix JFS file system corruption

JFS: Flush dirty metadata to disk when remounting from read-write
to read-only. Also fix umount ordering to make sure metadata is
written before journal closed.

With Andrew Morton's recent changes, JFS is no longer writing much
of its dirty metadata when remounting from read-write to read-only.
This causes severe file system corruption. A JFS root file system
will be corrupted on shutdown.

This patch fixes the problem by explicitly writing the dirty metadata
before the journal is closed. It also fixes the ordering so that
the dirty metadata is completely written before the journal is closed
for the normal unmount case as well.

--------------------------------------------------------------
[PATCH] NLS: Allow user to select 1:1 mapping

This allows user to select 'default' encoding, which has defined mapping
for each of 255 byte values, so one can use it as a fallback when it
finds filesystem with unknown encoding (EBCDIC for example) just to get
characters through filesystem.
