[PATCH 0/5] pv clock misc fixes
Hello folks, In this series, I present a couple of fixes for kvmclock. In patch 1, a guest-side fix is proposed for a problem that is biting us for quite a while now. the tsc inside VMs does not seem to be that good, (up to now, only single-socket nehalems were stable enough), and we're seeing small (but neverth... 15 Apr 2010 15:51
[PATCH 2/5] change msr numbers for kvmclock
Avi pointed out a while ago that those MSRs falls into the pentium PMU range. So the idea here is to add new ones, and after a while, deprecate the old ones.

[PATCH 1/5] Add a global synchronization point for pvclock
In recent stress tests, it was found that pvclock-based systems could seriously warp in smp systems. Using ingo's time-warp-test.c, I could trigger a scenario as bad as 1.5mi warps a minute in some systems. (to be fair, it wasn't that bad in most of them). Investigating further, I found out that such warps were cau... 15 Apr 2010 14:45
watchdog/max63xx: be careful when disabling the watchdog
Hi Marc, The attached patch fixes a nasty error with the max63xx driver, potentially leaving the platform dead (and watchdog disabled...). Will add that fix also.

[BUG] 2.6.34-rc4: acpi boot-time oops on FSC Amilo Pa 3553
Kernels up to and including 2.6.34-rc3 boot fine on my Amilo Pa 3553, but 2.6.34-rc4 always oopses during boot in acpi. Without a serial port I cannot capture the entire oops, but it goes something like this: __driver_attach bus_for_each_dev driver_attach __driver_attach bus_add_driver acpi_device_remove dr... 15 Apr 2010 14:45
[PATCH RFC tip/core/rcu 15/16] rcu: permit discontiguous cpu_possible_mask CPU numbering
TREE_RCU assumes that CPU numbering is contiguous, but some users need large holes in the numbering to better map to hardware layout. This patch makes TREE_RCU (and TREE_PREEMPT_RCU) tolerate large holes in the CPU numbering. However, NR_CPUS must still be greater than the largest CPU number. Signed-off-by: Pa... 15 Apr 2010 14:44
[PATCH RFC tip/core/rcu 04/16] rcu: ignore offline CPUs in last non-dyntick-idle CPU check
From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs(a)> Offline CPUs are not in nohz_cpu_mask, but can be ignored when checking for the last non-dyntick-idle CPU. This patch therefore only checks online CPUs for not being dyntick idle, allowing fast entry into full-system dyntick-idle state even when there are some offline C... 15 Apr 2010 14:44
