b44: fix workarround for wap54g10

the config option was wrong. The nvram_get function was never in
mainline kernel, only in external OpenWrt patches.

The code should be compiled in when CONFIG_BCM47XX is selected and not

this when the function signature changes.

af_unix: limit recursion level

This mechanism is used in applications, one choice we have is to have a
recursion limit.

Other limits might be needed as well (if we queue other types of files),

Add a recursion_level to unix socket, allowing up to 4 levels.

Each time we send an unix socket through sendfd mechanism, we copy its
recursion level (plus one) to receiver. This recursion level is cleared

tested from wait_for_unix_gc() and to force a call to unix_gc() if this

ath9k: fix timeout on stopping rx dma

It seems that using ath9k_hw_stoppcurecv to stop rx dma is not enough.
When it's time to stop DMA, the PCU is still busy, so the rx enable

11 years agoof/phylib: Use device tree properties to initialize Marvell PHYs.
David Daney [Fri, 19 Nov 2010 12:13:18 +0000 (12:13 +0000)]
of/phylib: Use device tree properties to initialize Marvell PHYs.

Some aspects of PHY initialization are board dependent, things like
indicator LED connections and some clocking modes cannot be determined
by probing.  The dev_flags element of struct phy_device can be used to
control these things if an appropriate value can be passed from the
Ethernet driver.  We run into problems however if the PHY connections
are specified by the device tree.  There is no way for the Ethernet
driver to know what flags it should pass.

If we are using the device tree, the struct phy_device will be
populated with the device tree node corresponding to the PHY, and we
can extract extra configuration information from there.

The next question is what should the format of that information be?
It is highly device specific, and the device tree representation
should not be tied to any arbitrary kernel defined constants.  A
straight forward representation is just to specify the exact bits that
should be set using the "marvell,reg-init" property:

      phy5: ethernet-phy@5 {
        reg = <5>;
        compatible = "marvell,88e1149r";
        marvell,reg-init =
                /* led[0]:1000, led[1]:100, led[2]:10, led[3]:tx */
                <3 0x10 0 0x5777>, /* Reg 3,16 <- 0x5777 */
                /* mix %:0, led[0123]:drive low off hiZ */
                <3 0x11 0 0x00aa>, /* Reg 3,17 <- 0x00aa */
                /* default blink periods. */
                <3 0x12 0 0x4105>, /* Reg 3,18 <- 0x4105 */
                /* led[4]:rx, led[5]:dplx, led[45]:drive low off hiZ */
                <3 0x13 0 0x0a60>; /* Reg 3,19 <- 0x0a60 */

      phy6: ethernet-phy@6 {
        reg = <6>;
        compatible = "marvell,88e1118";
        marvell,reg-init =
                /* Fix rx and tx clock transition timing */
                <2 0x15 0xffcf 0>, /* Reg 2,21 Clear bits 4, 5 */
                /* Adjust LED drive. */
                <3 0x11 0 0x442a>, /* Reg 3,17 <- 0442a */
                /* irq, blink-activity, blink-link */
                <3 0x10 0 0x0242>; /* Reg 3,16 <- 0x0242 */

The Marvell PHYs have a page select register at register 22 (0x16), we
can specify any register by its page and register number.  These are
the first and second word.  The third word contains a mask to be ANDed
with the existing register value, and the fourth word is ORed with the
result to yield the new register value.  The new marvell_of_reg_init
function leaves the page select register unchanged, so a call to it
can be dropped into the .config_init functions without unduly
affecting the state of the PHY.

If CONFIG_OF_MDIO is not set, there is no of_node, or no
"marvell,reg-init" property, the PHY initialization is unchanged.

ipv6: addrconf: don't remove address state on ifdown if the address is being kept

Currently, addrconf_ifdown does not delete statically configured IPv6
addresses when the interface is brought down. The intent is that when
the interface comes back up the address will be usable again. However,
this doesn't actually work, because the system stops listening on the
corresponding solicited-node multicast address, so the address cannot
respond to neighbor solicitations and thus receive traffic. Also, the
code notifies the rest of the system that the address is being deleted
(e.g, RTM_DELADDR), even though it is not. Fix it so that none of this
state is updated if the address is being kept on the interface.

Tested: Added a statically configured IPv6 address to an interface,
started ping, brought link down, brought link up again. When link came
up ping kept on going and "ip -6 maddr" showed that the host was still
