      xtensa: add system call table generation support · c7914ef6
      Firoz Khan authored
      The system call tables are in different format in all
      architecture and it will be difficult to manually add,
      modify or delete the syscall table entries in the res-
      pective files. To make it easy by keeping a script and
      which will generate the uapi header and syscall table
      file. This change will also help to unify the implemen-
      tation across all architectures.
      The system call table generation script is added in
      kernel/syscalls directory which contain the scripts to
      generate both uapi header file and system call table
      files. The syscall.tbl will be input for the scripts.
      syscall.tbl contains the list of available system calls
      along with system call number and corresponding entry
      point. Add a new system call in this architecture will
      be possible by adding new entry in the syscall.tbl file.
      Adding a new table entry consisting of:
        	- System call number.
      	- ABI.
      	- System call name.
      	- Entry point name.
      syscallhdr.sh and syscalltbl.sh will generate uapi header
      unistd_32.h and syscall_table.h files respectively. Both
      .sh files will parse the content syscall.tbl to generate
      the header and table files. unistd_32.h will be included
      by uapi/asm/unistd.h and syscall_table.h is included by
      kernel/syscall.c - the real system call table.
      ARM, s390 and x86 architecuture does have similar support.
      I leverage their implementation to come up with a generic

      xtensa: add __NR_syscalls along with __NR_syscall_count · a86067f5
      Firoz Khan authored
      __NR_syscall_count macro holds the number of system call
      exist in xtensa architecture. We have to change the value
      of __NR_syscall_count, if we add or delete a system call.
      One of the patch in this patch series has a script which
      will generate a uapi header based on syscall.tbl file.
      The syscall.tbl file contains the total number of system
      calls information. So we have two option to update __NR-
      _syscall_count value.
      1. Update __NR_syscall_count in asm/unistd.h manually by
         counting the no.of system calls. No need to update __NR-
         _syscall_count until we either add a new system call or
         delete existing system call.
      2. We can keep this feature it above mentioned script,
         that will count the number of syscalls and keep it in
         a generated file. In this case we don't need to expli-
         citly update __NR_syscall_count in asm/unistd.h file.
      The 2nd option will be the recommended one. For that, I
      added the __NR_syscalls macro in uapi/asm/unistd.h.
      The macro __NR_syscalls also added for making the name
      convention same across all architecture. While __NR_syscalls
      isn't strictly part of the uapi, having it as part of the
      generated header to simplifies the implementation. We also
      need to enclose this macro with #ifdef __KERNEL__ to avoid
      side effects.

       "Volume is a little higher than usual due to a set of gpio fixes for
        Davinci platforms that's been around a while, still seemed appropriate
        to not hold off until next merge window.
        Besides that it's the usual mix of minor fixes, mostly corrections of
        small stuff in device trees.
        Major stability-related one is the removal of a regulator from DT on
        Rock960, since DVFS caused undervoltage. I expect it'll be restored
        once they figure out the underlying issue"

      Pull STIBP fallout fixes from Thomas Gleixner:
       "The performance destruction department finally got it's act together
        and came up with a cure for the STIPB regression:
         - Provide a command line option to control the spectre v2 user space
           mitigations. Default is either seccomp or prctl (if seccomp is
           disabled in Kconfig). prctl allows mitigation opt-in, seccomp
           enables the migitation for sandboxed processes.
         - Rework the code to handle the conditional STIBP/IBPB control and
           remove the now unused ptrace_may_access_sched() optimization
         - Disable STIBP automatically when SMT is disabled
         - Optimize the switch_to() logic to avoid MSR writes and invocations
           of __switch_to_xtra().
         - Make the asynchronous speculation TIF updates synchronous to
           prevent stale mitigation state.
        As a general cleanup this also makes retpoline directly depend on
        compiler support and removes the 'minimal retpoline' option which just
        pretended to provide some form of security while providing none"

      PCI: Fix incorrect value returned from pcie_get_speed_cap() · f1f90e25
      Mikulas Patocka authored
      The macros PCI_EXP_LNKCAP_SLS_*GB are values, not bit masks.  We must mask
      the register and compare it against them.
      This fixes errors like this:
        amdgpu: [powerplay] failed to send message 261 ret is 0
      when a PCIe-v3 card is plugged into a PCIe-v1 slot, because the slot is
      being incorrectly reported as PCIe-v3 capable.
      6cf57be0, which appeared in v4.17, added pcie_get_speed_cap() with the
      incorrect test of PCI_EXP_LNKCAP_SLS as a bitmask.  5d9a6330, which
      appeared in v4.19, changed amdgpu to use pcie_get_speed_cap(), so the
      amdgpu bug reports below are regressions in v4.19.
      Fixes: 6cf57be0 ("PCI: Add pcie_get_speed_cap() to find max supported link speed")
      Fixes: 5d9a6330 ("drm/amdgpu: use pcie functions for link width and speed")

           used to uniquify a filename for an object to be placed in the
           graveyard. Objects placed there are deleted by cachfilesd in
