The TWL4030 IRQ handler has a bug which leads to spinlock lock-up. It is
calling the 'unmask' function in a process context. :The mask/unmask/ack
functions are only designed to be called from the IRQ handler code,
or the proper API interfaces found in linux/interrupt.h.

Also there is no need to have IRQ chaining mechanism. The right way to
handle this is to claim the parent interrupt as a standard interrupt
and arrange for handle_twl4030_pih to take care of the rest of the devices.

x86: fix assembly constraints in native_save_fl()

From Gabe Black in bugzilla 13888:

native_save_fl is implemented as follows:

  11static inline unsigned long native_save_fl(void)
  12{
  13        unsigned long flags;
  14
  15        asm volatile("# __raw_save_flags\n\t"
  16                     "pushf ; pop %0"

  18                     : /* no input */
  19                     : "memory");
  20
  21        return flags;
  22}

If gcc chooses to put flags on the stack, for instance because this is
inlined into a larger function with more register pressure, the offset
of the flags variable from the stack pointer will change when the
pushf is performed. gcc doesn't attempt to understand that fact, and
address used for pop will still be the same. It will write to
somewhere near flags on the stack but not actually into it and
overwrite some other value.

I saw this happen in the ide_device_add_all function when running in a

using the keyboard controller works (the system just hangs and doesn't

does work.

This adds a quirk to detect this machine via DMI and force the
reboot_type to BOOT_CF9.  With this it reboots successfully without
requiring a command-line option.  Note that the EFI code forces
reboot_type to BOOT_EFI when the machine is booted via EFI, but this
overrides that since the core_initcall runs after the EFI

to a raid array. If the new device does not support data integrity,

resource, which means that now it's actively wrong to then traverse the
resource tree any more: we already know exactly where the new resource
should go.

It appears the PCI device is removed twice.  The eeepc_rfkill_hotplug()
call from the resume handler is racing against the call from the ACPI
notifier callback.  The ACPI notification is triggered by the resume
handler when it refreshes the value of CM_ASL_WLAN.

The fix is to serialize hotplug calls using a workqueue.

commit 4ae1507f6d266d0cc3dd36e474d83aad70fec9e4 changed the default

ownership information from the server is preserved, even when the mount

thinkpad-acpi: remove dock and bay subdrivers

The standard ACPI dock driver can handle the hotplug bays and docks of

code in thinkpad-acpi for the dock and bay subdrivers is currently
broken anyway...

Userspace needs some love to support the two-stage ejection nicely,
but it is simple enough to do through udev rules (you don't even need
HAL) so this wouldn't justify fixing the dock and bay subdrivers,
either.

That leaves warm-swap bays (_EJ3) support for thinkpad-acpi, as well
as support for the weird dock of the model 570, but since such support
has never left the "experimental" stage, it is also not a strong
enough reason to find a way to fix this code.

Users of ThinkPads with warm-swap bays are urged to request that _EJ3

indeed useful for them.

thinkpad-acpi: disable broken bay and dock subdrivers

Currently, the ThinkPad-ACPI bay and dock drivers are completely

therefore, an OOPS) when they try to issue events (i.e. on dock,

OTOH, the standard ACPI dock driver can handle the hotplug bays and

In fact, it does a much better job of it than thinkpad-acpi ever did.

It is just not worth the hassle to find a way to fix this crap without
breaking the (deprecated) thinkpad-acpi dock/bay ABI.  This is old,
deprecated code that sees little testing or use.

As a quick fix suitable for -stable backports, mark the thinkpad-acpi
bay and dock subdrivers as BROKEN in Kconfig.  The dead code will be
removed by a later patch.

filesystem with a 1KB block size when doing rsync.

This turned out to be caused by an inconsistency of dirty state
between a page and its buffers storing b-tree node blocks.

If the page had multiple buffers split over multiple logs, and if the
logs were written at a time, a dirty flag remained in the page even
every dirty flag in the buffers was cleared.

This will fix the failure by dropping the dirty flag properly for
pages with the discrete multiple b-tree nodes.

x86, pat: Fix set_memory_wc related corruption

Changeset 3869c4aa18835c8c61b44bd0f3ace36e9d3b5bd0
that went in after 2.6.30-rc1 was a seemingly small change to _set_memory_wc()
to make it complaint with SDM requirements. But, introduced a nasty bug, which
can result in crash and/or strange corruptions when set_memory_wc is used.
One such crash reported here
http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/7/30/94

Actually, that changeset introduced two bugs.
* change_page_attr_set() takes &addr as first argument and can the addr value
  might have changed on return, even for single page change_page_attr_set()
  call. That will make the second change_page_attr_set() in this routine
  operate on unrelated addr, that can eventually cause strange corruptions
  and bad page state crash.
* The second change_page_attr_set() call, before setting _PAGE_CACHE_WC, should
  clear the earlier _PAGE_CACHE_UC_MINUS, as otherwise cache attribute will not
  be WC (will be UC instead).

The patch below fixes both these problems. Sending a single patch to fix both
the problems, as the change is to the same line of code. The change to have a
addr_copy is not very clean. But, it is simpler than making more changes
through various routines in pageattr.c.

A huge thanks to Jerome for reporting this problem and providing a simple test
case that helped us root cause the problem.
