[PATCH 08/12] Revert "x86: disable IOMMUs on kernel crash"
From: Chris Wright <chrisw(a)sous-sol.org> This effectively reverts commit 61d047be99757fd9b0af900d7abce9a13a337488. Disabling the IOMMU can potetially allow DMA transactions to complete without being translated. Leave it enabled, and allow crash kernel to do the IOMMU reinitialization properly.

[PATCH 06/12] x86/amd-iommu: enable iommu before attaching devices
From: Chris Wright <chrisw(a)sous-sol.org> Hit another kdump problem as reported by Neil Horman. When initializaing the IOMMU, we attach devices to their domains before the IOMMU is fully (re)initialized. Attaching a device will issue some important invalidations. In the context of the newly kexec'd kdump kernel... 7 Apr 2010 08:57
[PATCH 03/12] x86/amd-iommu: Pt mode fix for domain_destroy
From: Chris Wright <chrisw(a)sous-sol.org> After a guest is shutdown, assigned devices are not properly returned to the pt domain. This can leave the device using stale cached IOMMU data, and result in a non-functional device after it's re-bound to the host driver. For example, I see this upon rebinding: AMD... 7 Apr 2010 08:57

PROBLEM + POSS FIX: kernel stack overflow, xfs, many disks, heavy write load, 8k stack, x86-64
Hi folks, [I'm afraid that I'm not subscribed to the list, please cc: me on any reply]. Problem: kernel.org x86_64 kernel locks up under write-heavy I/O load. It is "fixed" by changing THREAD_ORDER to 2. Is this an OK long-term solution/should this be needed? As far as I can see from searching, ... 13 Apr 2010 06:11
