[PATCH 0/2] Two patches for fs/super.c
Two patches. The second removes S_BIAS which is unnecessary and so potentially confusing. The first I found the need for while preparing the second patch. It seems that get_active_super doesn't follow the pattern of all other code that walks the super_blocks list. NeilBrown --- NeilBrown (2): ... 24 Mar 2010 02:14
[PATCH 1/2] VFS: use __put_super_and_need_restart in get_active_super.
The recently-added get_active_super() walks the super_blocks list but unlike all other code that walks this list it does not use __put_super_and_need_restart(). I believe this is an omission that should be fixed. cc: Christoph Hellwig <hch(a)lst.de> Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb(a)suse.de> --- fs/super.c | 4... 24 Mar 2010 02:14

[PATCH] Replace old style lock initializer
I seem to be on some deprecated thing. So after searching the kernel I found: SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED is deprecated, and that __SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED should be used. My finding's have found this, so hopefully it's legit.(the kernel compiles, but if anything else breaks am unsure due to not having this arch). Sign... 24 Mar 2010 01:08
[PATCH 1/2] sis-agp: Remove SIS 760, handled by amd64-agp
SIS 760 is listed in the device tables for both amd64-agp and sis-agp. amd64-agp is apparently preferable since it has workarounds for some BIOS misconfigurations that sis-agp doesn't handle.

[PATCH 2/3] sysfs: make s_count a kref
s_count in sysfs behaves exactly like a kref, so change it to be one.

[PATCH 1/3] sysfs: simplify handling for s_active refcount
s_active counts the number of active references to a 'sysfs_direct'. When we wish to deactivate a sysfs_direct, we subtract a large number for the refcount so it will always appear negative. When it is negative, new references will not be taken. After that subtraction, we wait for all the active references to dra... 24 Mar 2010 00:01
[PATCH 0/3] refcounting improvements in sysfs.
This series tidies up the refcount of sysfs_dirents in sysfs, using kref where appropriate and a new karef for s_active. This achieves significant code simplification, especially the first patch.
