[PATCH 07/15] x86 ioapic: Fix io_apic_redir_entries to return the number of entries.
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm(a)xmission.com> io_apic_redir_entries has a huge conceptual bug. It returns the maximum redirection entry not the number of redirection entries. Which simply does not match what the name of the function. This just caught me and it caught Feng Tang, and Len Brown when they wrot... 30 Mar 2010 05:02
[PATCH 10/15] x86 ioapic: In mpparse use mp_register_ioapic
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm(a)xmission.com> Long ago MP_ioapic_info was the primary way of setting up our ioapic data structures and mp_register_ioapic was a compatibility shim for acpi code. Now the situation is reversed and and mp_register_ioapic is the primary way of setting up our ioapic data structures... 30 Mar 2010 05:02
[PATCH 06/15] x86 ioapic: Only export mp_find_ioapic and mp_find_ioapic_pin in io_apic.h
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm(a)xmission.com> Multiple declarations of the same function in different headers is a pain to maintain. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

reiserfs + acl corruption
I hope to post in the right place. I recently suffered a filesystem corruption with reiserfs in a production environment and I was able to reproduce it. The corruption started when i played with extended attributes, posix acls, with a partition containing hundreds of thousands of files. To reproduce the issue test... 30 Mar 2010 05:02
[PATCH 05/15] x86 acpi/irq: Generalize mp_config_acpi_legacy_irqs
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm(a)xmission.com> Remove the assumption that there is not an override for isa irq 0. Instead lookup the gsi and from that lookup the ioapic and pin of each isa irq indivdually. In general this should not have any behavioural affect but in perverse cases this gets all of the detail... 30 Mar 2010 05:02
[PATCH 02/15] x86 acpi/irq: Teach acpi_get_override_irq to take a gsi not an isa_irq
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm(a)xmission.com> In perverse acpi implementations the isa irqs are not identity mapped to the first 16 gsi. Furthermore at least the extended interrupt resource capability may return gsi's and not isa irqs. So since what we get from acpi is a gsi teach acpi_get_overrride_irq to o... 30 Mar 2010 05:02
[PATCH 01/15] x86 acpi/irq: Introduce apci_isa_irq_to_gsi
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm(a)xmission.com> There are a number of cases where the current code makes the assumption that isa irqs identity map to the first 16 acpi global system intereupts. In most instances that assumption is correct as that is the required behaviour in dual i8259 mode and the default behavi... 30 Mar 2010 05:02
[PATCH 11/15] x86 ioapic: Move nr_ioapic_registers calculation to mp_register_ioapic.
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm(a)xmission.com> Now that all ioapic registration happens in mp_register_ioapic we can move the calculation of nr_ioapic_registers there from enable_IO_APIC. The number of ioapic registers is already calucated in mp_register_ioapic so all that really needs to be done is to save the ... 30 Mar 2010 05:02

Please pull logfs tree for fixes
Good morning Linus! I have a dozen fixes for you. Some solve error path bugs, some are necessary for the SSD that I never wanted to buy but finally did anyway and the rest solve rather nasty bugs. Al still has one error path problem I haven't dealt with yet. dev_bdev.c | 9 +++++++-- dir.c | ... 30 Mar 2010 03:57
