      floppy: cancel any pending fd_timeouts before adding a new one · dab058fd
      Linus Torvalds authored
      In commit 070ad7e7 ("floppy: convert to delayed work and
      single-thread wq") the 'fd_timeout' timer was converted to a delayed
      work.  However, the "del_timer(&fd_timeout)" was lost in the process,
      and any previous pending timeouts would stay active when we then
      re-queued the timeout.
      This resulted in the floppy probe sequence having a (stale) 20s timeout
      rather than the intended 3s timeout, and thus made booting with the
      floppy driver (but no actual floppy controller) take much longer than it
      Of course, there's little reason for most people to compile the floppy
      driver into the kernel at all, which is why most people never noticed.
      Canceling the delayed work where we used to do the del_timer() fixes the
      issue, and makes the floppy probing use the proper new timeout instead.
      The three second timeout is still very wasteful, but better than the 20s

      which could cause it to *skip* the parent validation

          commit 7975059d
          Author: Rajendra Nayak <rnayak@ti.com>
          Date:   Wed Jun 6 14:41:31 2012 +0530
              clk: Allow late cache allocation for clk->parents
      This was identified by the following compiler warning..
          drivers/clk/clk.c: In function '__clk_set_parent':
          drivers/clk/clk.c:1083:5: warning: 'i' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wuninitialized]
      .. as reported by Marc Kleine-Budde.
      There were various options discussed on how to fix this, one
      being initing 'i' to clk->num_parents, but the below approach
      was found to be more appropriate as it also makes the 'parent
      validation' code simpler to read.

      dm thin: commit metadata before creating metadata snapshot · 0d200aef
      Joe Thornber authored
      Userland sometimes sees a corrupt metadata block if metadata is changing
      rapidly when a metadata snapshot is reserved for userland,  To make the
      problem go away, commit before we take the metadata snapshot (which is a
      sensible thing to do anyway).
      The checksums mean userland spots this corruption immediately so there's
      no risk of acting on incorrect data.  No corruption exists from the
      kernel's point of view, and thin_check passes after pool shutdown.
      I believe this is to do with shared blocks at the first level of the
      {device, mapping} btree.  Prior to the metadata-snap support no sharing
      at this level was possible, so this patch is only required after commit
      cc8394d8 ("dm thin: provide userspace
      access to pool metadata").

      drm/i915: kick any firmware framebuffers before claiming the gtt · 9f846a16
      Daniel Vetter authored
      Especially vesafb likes to map everything as uc- (yikes), and if that
      mapping hangs around still while we try to map the gtt as wc the
      kernel will downgrade our request to uc-, resulting in abyssal
      Unfortunately we can't do this as early as readon does (i.e. as the
      first thing we do when initializing the hw) because our fb/mmio space
      region moves around on a per-gen basis. So I've had to move it below
      the gtt initialization, but that seems to work, too. The important
      thing is that we do this before we set up the gtt wc mapping.
      Now an altogether different question is why people compile their
      kernels with vesafb enabled, but I guess making things just work isn't
      bad per se ...

      This is commit e188719a in drm-next.
      Backport to 3.5 -fixes queue requested by Dave Airlie - due to grub
      using vesa on fedora their initrd seems to load vesafb before loading
      the real kms driver. So tons more people actually experience a
      dead-slow gpu. Hence also the Cc: stable.

      drm: edid: Don't add inferred modes with higher resolution · 7b668ebe
      Takashi Iwai authored
      When a monitor EDID doesn't give the preferred bit, driver assumes
      that the mode with the higest resolution and rate is the preferred
      mode.  Meanwhile the recent changes for allowing more modes in the
      GFT/CVT ranges give actually more modes, and some modes may be over
      the native size.  Thus such a mode would be picked up as the preferred
      mode although it's no native resolution.
      For avoiding such a problem, this patch limits the addition of
      inferred modes by checking not to be greater than other modes.
      Also, it checks the duplicated mode entry at the same time.

      In gem idle/busy ioctl the radeon object was derefenced after
      drm_gem_object_unreference_unlocked which in case the object
      have been destroyed lead to use of a possibly free pointer with

      md: fix up plugging (again). · b357f04a
      NeilBrown authored
      The value returned by "mddev_check_plug" is only valid until the
      next 'schedule' as that will unplug things.  This could happen at any
      call to mempool_alloc.
      So just calling mddev_check_plug at the start doesn't really make
      So call it just before, or just after, queuing things for the thread.
      As the action that happens at unplug is to wake the thread, this makes
      lots of sense.
      If we cannot add a plug (which requires a small GFP_ATOMIC alloc) we
      wake thread immediately.
      RAID5 is a bit different.  Requests are queued for the thread and the
      thread is woken by release_stripe.  So we don't need to wake the
      thread on failure.
      However the thread doesn't perform certain actions when there is any
      active plug, so it is important to install a plug before waking the
      thread.  So for RAID5 we install the plug *before* queuing the request
      and waking the thread.
      Without this patch it is possible for raid1 or raid10 to queue a
      request without then waking the thread, resulting in the array locking
      Also change raid10 to only flush_pending_write when there are not
      active plugs, just like raid1.
      This patch is suitable for 3.0 or later.  I plan to submit it to
      -stable, but I'll like to let it spend a few weeks in mainline
      first to be sure it is completely safe.

      md: support re-add of recovering devices. · f4563091
      NeilBrown authored
      We currently only allow a device to be re-added if it appear to be
      in-sync.  This is overly restrictive as it may be desirable to re-add
      a device that is in the middle of recovery.
      So remove the test for "InSync" - the test on rdev->raid_disk is
      sufficient to ensure that the re-add will succeed.

      md/raid1: fix bug in read_balance introduced by hot-replace · 32644afd
      NeilBrown authored
      When we added hot_replace we doubled the number of devices
      that could be in a RAID1 array.  So we doubled how far read_balance
      would search.  Unfortunately we didn't double the point at which
      it looped back to the beginning - so it effectively loops over
      all non-replacement disks twice.
      This doesn't cause bad behaviour, but it pointless and means we
      never read from replacement devices.

      raid5: delayed stripe fix · fab363b5
      Shaohua Li authored
      There isn't locking setting STRIPE_DELAYED and STRIPE_PREREAD_ACTIVE bits, but
      the two bits have relationship. A delayed stripe can be moved to hold list only
      when preread active stripe count is below IO_THRESHOLD. If a stripe has both
      the bits set, such stripe will be in delayed list and preread count not 0,
      which will make such stripe never leave delayed list.

      We may not be able to fix a bad block if:
       - the array is degraded
       - the over-write fails.
      In these cases we currently eject the device, but we should
      record a bad block if possible.

      NeilBrown authored
      Having the 'name' arg optional and defaulting to the current
      personality name is no necessary and leads to errors, as when
      changing the level of an array we can end up using the
      name of the old level instead of the new one.
      So make it non-optional and always explicitly pass the name
      of the level that the array will be.

      commit 58c54fcc
           md/raid10: handle further errors during fix_read_error better.
      in 3.1 added "r10_sync_page_io" which takes an IO size in sectors.
      But we were passing the IO size in bytes!!!
      This resulting in bio_add_page failing, and empty request being sent
      down, and a consequent BUG_ON in scsi_lib.
      [fix missing space in error message at same time]
      This fix is suitable for 3.1.y and later.

      commit 43220aa0
          md/raid5: fix a hang on device failure.
      fixed a hang, but introduced a refcounting in-balance so
      that if the presence of bad-blocks ever caused an rdev to
      be 'blocked' we would increment the refcount on the rdev and
      never decrement it.
      So added the needed rdev_dec_pending when md_wait_for_blocked_rdev
      is not called.
