[PATCH 7/7] HWPOISON, hugetlb: support hwpoison injection for hugepage
This patch enables hwpoison injection through debug/hwpoison interfaces, with which we can test memory error handling for free or reserved hugepages (which cannot be tested by madvise() injector).

[PATCH 4/7] HWPOISON, hugetlb: maintain mce_bad_pages in handling hugepage error
For now all pages in the error hugepage are considered as hwpoisoned, so count all of them in mce_bad_pages.

[PATCH 3/7] HWPOISON, hugetlb: set/clear PG_hwpoison bits on hugepage
To avoid race condition between concurrent memory errors on identified hugepage, we atomically test and set PG_hwpoison bit on the head page. All pages in the error hugepage are considered as hwpoisoned for now, so set and clear all PG_hwpoison bits in the hugepage with page lock of the head page held. Dependenc... 13 May 2010 05:02

[PATCH 4/4] trace, powerpc: Implement raw syscall tracepoints on PowerPC
From: Ian Munsie <imunsie(a)au.ibm.com> This patch implements the raw syscall tracepoints on PowerPC required for ftrace syscalls. To minimise reworking existing code, I slightly re-ordered the thread info flags such that the new TIF_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINT bit would still fit within the 16 bits of the andi instructi... 13 May 2010 03:58
[PATCH 1/4] ftrace syscalls: don't add events for unmapped syscalls
From: Ian Munsie <imunsie(a)au1.ibm.com> FTRACE_SYSCALLS would create events for each and every system call, even if it had failed to map the system call's name with it's number. This resulted in a number of events being created that would not behave as expected. This could happen, for example, on architectures ... 13 May 2010 03:58

[PATCH] [ath5k][leds] Ability to disable leds support. If leds support enabled do not force mac802.11 leds layer selection.
Hello, Pavel. I will rework the patch considering your suggestions. I'm not sure this complexity is needed. Are you going to support LEDs if CONFIG_LEDS_CLASS is disabled? If there's any other place in driver that might want use LEDs w/o exporting the interface to the userspace. -- Dima Milinevskyy ... 11 Jun 2010 22:32
