[PATCH] backlight: provide sysfs percent brightness attribute
It's usually more convenient to set the backlight brightness as a 'percent' of total brightness rather than using the raw 'brightness' value. This provides the necessary sysfs attributes to handle this. Signed-off-by: H Hartley Sweeten <hsweeten(a)> Cc: Richard Purdie <rpurdie(a)> --... 12 Mar 2010 12:47
[PATCH] drivers/serial/sunsab.c: adjust the constant used to initialize the interrupt_mask0 fields
From: Julia Lawall <julia(a)> SAB82532_ISR0_TCD is declared in drivers/serial/subsab.h as relating to a status register, while SAB82532_IMR0_TCD is declared in the same file as relating to a mask register. The latter seems more appropriate for the interrupt_mask0 field, and follows the strategy for initiali... 12 Mar 2010 12:47
[PATCH 04/11] Allow CONFIG_MIGRATION to be set without CONFIG_NUMA or memory hot-remove
CONFIG_MIGRATION currently depends on CONFIG_NUMA or on the architecture being able to hot-remove memory. The main users of page migration such as sys_move_pages(), sys_migrate_pages() and cpuset process migration are only beneficial on NUMA so it makes sense. As memory compaction will operate within a zone and i... 12 Mar 2010 12:47
[PATCH 11/11] Do not compact within a preferred zone after a compaction failure
The fragmentation index may indicate that a failure it due to external fragmentation, a compaction run complete and an allocation failure still fail. There are two obvious reasons as to why o Page migration cannot move all pages so fragmentation remains o A suitable page may exist but watermarks are not met ... 12 Mar 2010 12:47
[PATCH 02/11] mm,migration: Do not try to migrate unmapped anonymous pages
rmap_walk_anon() was triggering errors in memory compaction that looks like use-after-free errors in anon_vma. The problem appears to be that between the page being isolated from the LRU and rcu_read_lock() being taken, the mapcount of the page dropped to 0 and the anon_vma was freed. This patch skips the migration... 12 Mar 2010 12:47
