[PATCH] perf: x86: fix callgraphs of 32-bit processes on 64-bit kernels.
When profiling a 32-bit process on a 64-bit kernel, callgraph tracing stopped after the first function, because it has seen a garbage memory address (tried to interpret the frame pointer, and return address as a 64-bit pointer). Fix this by using a struct stack_frame with 32-bit pointers when the TIF_IA32 flag is ... 15 Mar 2010 12:20
fix callgraphs of 32-bit processes on 64-bit kernels.
Hi, Callgraph profiling 32-bit apps on a 64-bit kernel doesn't work. The reason is that perf_callchain_user tries to read a stackframe with 64-bit pointers, which is wrong for a 32-bit process. This patch fixes that, and I am almost able to get nice callgraph profiles from 32-bit apps now! (except for some pro... 16 Mar 2010 06:51

gigaset: prune use of tty_buffer_request_room
Calling tty_buffer_request_room() before tty_insert_flip_string() is unnecessary, costs CPU and for big buffers can mess up the multi-page allocation avoidance.
