      [PATCH] Add block_device_operations.getgeo block device method · a885c8c4
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      HDIO_GETGEO is implemented in most block drivers, and all of them have to
      duplicate the code to copy the structure to userspace, as well as getting
      the start sector.  This patch moves that to common code [1] and adds a
      ->getgeo method to fill out the raw kernel hd_geometry structure.  For many
      drivers this means ->ioctl can go away now.
      
      [1] the s390 block drivers are odd in this respect.  xpram sets ->start
          to 4 always which seems more than odd, and the dasd driver shifts
          the start offset around, probably because of it's non-standard
          sector size.

      [BLOCK] update IDE to use new blk_ordered for barriers · 3e087b57
      Tejun Heo authored
      Update IDE to use new blk_ordered.  This change makes the
      following behavior changes.
      
      * Partial completion of the barrier request is handled as
        failure of the whole ordered sequence.  No more partial
        completion for barrier requests.
      
      * Any failure of pre or post flush request results in failure
        of the whole ordered sequence.
      
      So, successfully completed ordered sequence guarantees that
      all requests prior to the barrier made to physical medium and,
      then, the while barrier request made to the physical medium.

      [PATCH] ide: MODALIAS support for autoloading of ide-cd, ide-disk, ... · 263756ec
      Kay Sievers authored
      IDE: MODALIAS support for autoloading of ide-cd, ide-disk, ...
      
      Add MODULE_ALIAS to IDE midlayer modules: ide-disk, ide-cd, ide-floppy and
      ide-tape, to autoload these modules depending on the probed media type of
      the IDE device.
      
      It is used by udev and replaces the former agent shell script of the hotplug
      package, which was required to lookup the media type in the proc filesystem.
      Using proc was racy, cause the media file is created after the hotplug event
      is sent out.
      
      The module autoloading does not take any effect, until something like the
      following udev rule is configured:
        SUBSYSTEM=="ide",  ACTION=="add", ENV{MODALIAS}=="?*", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe $env{MODALIAS}"
      
      The module ide-scsi will not be autoloaded, cause it requires manual
      configuration. It can't be, and never was supported for automatic setup in
      the hotplug package. Adding a MODULE_ALIAS to ide-scsi for all supported
      media types, would just lead to a default blacklist entry anyway.
      
        $ modinfo ide-disk
        filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.15-rc4-g1b0997f5/kernel/drivers/ide/ide-disk.ko
        description:    ATA DISK Driver
        alias:          ide:*m-disk*
        license:        GPL
        ...
      
        $ modprobe -vn ide:m-disk
        insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-rc4-g1b0997f5/kernel/drivers/ide/ide-disk.ko
      
        $ cat /sys/bus/ide/devices/0.0/modalias
        ide:m-disk
      
      It also adds attributes to the IDE device:
        $ tree /sys/bus/ide/devices/0.0/
        /sys/bus/ide/devices/0.0/
        |-- bus -> ../../../../../../../bus/ide
        |-- drivename
        |-- media
        |-- modalias
        |-- power
        |   |-- state
        |   `-- wakeup
        `-- uevent
      
        $ cat /sys/bus/ide/devices/0.0/{modalias,drivename,media}
        ide:m-disk
        hda
        disk

      [PATCH] convert IDE device drivers to driver-model · 8604affd
      Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz authored
      * add ide_bus_match() and export ide_bus_type
      * split ide_remove_driver_from_hwgroup() out of ide_unregister()
      * move device cleanup from ide_unregister() to drive_release_dev()
      * convert ide_driver_t->name to driver->name
      * convert ide_driver_t->{attach,cleanup} to driver->{probe,remove}
      * remove ide_driver_t->busy as ide_bus_type->subsys.rwsem
        protects against concurrent ->{probe,remove} calls
      * make ide_{un}register_driver() void as it cannot fail now
      * use driver_{un}register() directly, remove ide_{un}register_driver()
      * use device_register() instead of ata_attach(), remove ata_attach()
      * add proc_print_driver() and ide_drivers_show(), remove ide_drivers_op
      * fix ide_replace_subdriver() and move it to ide-proc.c
      * remove ide_driver_t->drives, ide_drives and drives_lock
      * remove ide_driver_t->drivers, drivers and drivers_lock
      * remove ide_drive_t->driver and DRIVER() macro

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
