Subject[PATCHv5 00/17] pps: several fixes and improvements
Date
This patchset contains several changes that improve an overall
design/performance of PPS subsystem. I'd like these patches to be
merged mainline if no one objects.

Patches 1-4 are bugfixes.
Patches 5-12 are other improvements to PPS subsystem.
Patches 13-15 add kernel consumer support.
Patch 16 adds parallel port PPS client.
Patch 17 adds parallel port PPS generator.

You can find description for my previous patchset (it describes patches
13-17 in more detailed) here: http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/2/24/189

This patchset is tested against the vanilla 2.6.36 kernel. But we are
actually using it on 2.6.33.7-rt29 rt-preempt kernel most of the time.
Those who are interested in other versions of the patchset can find
them in my git repository:
git://github.com/ago/linux-2.6.git

There is one problem however: kernel consumer works bad (if enabled)
when CONFIG_NO_HZ is enabled. The reason for this is commit
a092ff0f90cae22b2ac8028ecd2c6f6c1a9e4601. Without it hardpps() is able
to sync to 1us precision in about 10 seconds. With CONFIG_NO_HZ it is
not syncing at all. This only affects patches 13-15, others are ok.

Changelog
v4 -> v5:
* drop patch that adds PPS workqueue, it needs some more thinking
* replace patch that stops disabling interrupts with a lighter version
* add patch 5 which ensures that dcd_change() will never be called
before tty_ldisc_open() or after tty_ldisc_close()
* fix patch 7: convert all remaining prints
* use BUG_ON only in pps_event
* use "canonical" error-handling style in pps_tty_open

Alexander Gordeev (17):
pps: trivial fixes
pps: declare variables where they are used in switch
pps: fix race in PPS_FETCH handler
pps: unify timestamp gathering
tty: don't allow ldisc dcd_change() after ldisc halt
pps: access pps device by direct pointer
pps: convert printk/pr_* to dev_*
pps: move idr stuff to pps.c
pps: do not disable interrupts for idr operations
pps: use BUG_ON for kernel API safety checks
pps: simplify conditions a bit
pps: timestamp is always passed to dcd_change()
ntp: add hardpps implementation
pps: capture MONOTONIC_RAW timestamps as well
pps: add kernel consumer support
pps: add parallel port PPS client
pps: add parallel port PPS signal generator
