[PATCH] time: Cleanup warp_clock
Not critical, 2.6.35 material. warp_clock() currently accesses timekeeping internal state directly, which is unnecessary. Convert it to use the proper timekeeping interfaces.

[PATCH] xtensa: Fix unnecessary setting of xtime
Not critical, 2.6.35 material. xtensa supports read_persisitent_clock(), so there is no reason for the arch specific code to be setting xtime. Setting xtime will be done by the generic timekeeping code. Please let me know if this is some sort of a workaround for an issue instead of just an oversight. Cc: Th... 3 Mar 2010 23:05

[PATCH -v2 0/2] ACPI, APEI, use general HEST table parsing in AER firmware_first setup
Changelog: v2: - Setup firmware_first for every PCIE end point instead of just root point. - Wrap firmware accessing in a function instead of raw hardware, because HEST parsing involved. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to majordomo(a)vge... 3 Mar 2010 22:00
[PATCH tip/core/rcu 0/3] rcu: fix !PREEMPT, __mpol_dup(), and ftrace_perf_buf_prepare() RCU lockdep splats
Hello! This patch fixes three RCU lockdep issues: 1. Makes rcu_read_lock_sched_held() correctly handle !PREEMPT kernels. 2. Suppresses __mpol_dup() false positive. 3. Converts a pair of rcu_dereference() calls in ftrace_perf_buf_prepare() to rcu_dereference_sched(). There are probably more where thes... 3 Mar 2010 22:00
[PATCH] i386: do a global tlb flush in S4 resume
Colin reported a strange oops in S4 resume code path (see below). The test system has i5/i7 CPU. The kernel doesn't open PAE, so 4M page table is used. The oops always happen a virtual address 0xc03ff000, which is mapped to the last 4k of first 4M memory. Doing a global tlb flush fixes the issue. EIP: 0060:[<c049... 3 Mar 2010 20:54
