Regression: 2.6.34 boot fails on E5405 system, bisected: de08e2c26
We're seeing boot failures on multiple machines, running FC8 and F11. I bisected on an FC8 32-bit system. Newer hardware works, but these older ones do not. A console log of the hang is found later in this email. Please let me know if you would like any additional information, and I will be happy to test pat... 16 Jul 2010 15:27
[PATCH 03/11] time: Kill off CONFIG_GENERIC_TIME
Now that all arches have been converted over to use generic time via clocksources or arch_gettimeoffset(), we can remove the GENERIC_TIME config option and simplify the generic code.

[PATCH 06/11] Fix update_vsyscall to provide wall_to_monotonic offset
update_vsyscall() did not provide the wall_to_monotoinc offset, so arch specific implementations tend to reference wall_to_monotonic directly. This limits future cleanups in the timekeeping core, so this patch fixes the update_vsyscall interface to provide wall_to_monotonic, allowing wall_to_monotonic to be made st... 13 Jul 2010 21:56
[PATCH 08/11] Cleanup hrtimer.c's direct access to wall_to_monotonic
Provides an accessor function to replace hrtimer.c's direct access of wall_to_monotonic. This will allow wall_to_monotonic to be made static as planned in Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.txt Signed-off-by: John Stultz <johnstul(a)> CC: Thomas Gleixner <tglx(a)> --- include/linux/ti... 13 Jul 2010 21:56
[PATCH 2.6.35-rc1] net-next: vmxnet3 fixes [1/5] Spare skb to avoid starvation (fwd)
skb_alloc() failure can cause the ring to loose all packet reception. Avoid this by introducing a spare buffer. The spare skb is only used when the ring is "empty" and an skb allocation failure would cause the ring to starve. It is never handed up to netif_rx(), and instead, when the rx_interrupt occurs, the skb ... 13 Jul 2010 21:56
[PATCH 10/11] Convert common x86 clocksources to use clocksource_register_hz/khz
This converts the most common of the x86 clocksources over to use clocksource_register_hz/khz. CC: Thomas Gleixner <tglx(a)> Signed-off-by: John Stultz <johnstul(a)> --- arch/x86/kernel/hpet.c | 13 +++++++++---- arch/x86/kernel/tsc.c | 6 ++---- drivers/clocksource/acpi... 13 Jul 2010 21:56
[PATCH 09/11] Make xtime and wall_to_monotonic static
This patch makes xtime and wall_to_monotonic static, as planned in Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.txt. This will allow for further cleanups to the timekeeping core.

[PATCH 01/11] x86: Fix vtime/file timestamp inconsistencies
Due to vtime calling vgettimeofday(), its possible that an application could call time();create("stuff",O_RDRW); only to see the file's creation timestamp to be before the value returned by time. A similar way to reproduce the issue is to compare the vsyscall time() with the syscall time(), and observe ordering... 13 Jul 2010 21:56
[PATCH 11/11] Add __clocksource_updatefreq_hz/khz methods
To properly handle clocksources that change frequencies at the clocksource->enable() point, this patch adds a method that will update the clocksource's mult/shift and max_idle_ns values.
