      kbuild: a better way to generate cscope database change · 64a99d2a
      Denis ChengRq authored
      
      
      It's a problem about cscope target of kernel Makefile, and the cscope
      plugin of emacs:
      1. `make cscope` will generate cscope.files cscope.{in,po,}.out;
      2. the cscope plugin expect a cscope.out.{in,po,};
      3. the default `cscope -b` would generate cscope.{in,po,}.out;
      
      There are three approach to solve it:
      1. modify the cscope C code;
      2. modify the cscope emacs plugin lisp code;
      3. modify the Makefile;
      
      I have tried to communicate with the cscope upstream, but later I
      realize the third approach is most meaningful.

      Kconfig: Extend "menuconfig" for modules to simplify Kconfig file · 0b0de144
      Robert P. J. Day authored
      
      
      Given that the init/Kconfig file uses a "menuconfig" directive for
      modules already, might as well wrap all the submenu entries in an "if"
      to toss all those dependencies.

      bugfix for scripts/patch-kernel in 2.6 sublevel stepping · 07584163
      Erkki Lintunen authored
      
      
      scripts/patch-kernel script can't patch a tree, say, from 2.6.25 to
      2.6.26.1, because of a wrong comparison in context of patching 2.6.x base.
       Fix it.

      kbuild: fix O=.. build with arm · 7a48bdd0
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      
      
      With a make O=... build kbuild would only create
      the include2/asm symlink for archs that not yet
      had moved headers to include/$ARCH/include
      
      There is no longer any reason to avoid the symlink
      for archs that has moved their headers so create it
      unconditionally.
      
      This fixes arm because kbuild checked for include/asm-$ARCH/errno.h
      and that file was not present for arm but the platform files
      are not yet moved.

      Re-introduce "[SCSI] extend the last_sector_bug flag to cover more sectors" · 18351070
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This re-introduces commit 2b142900,
      which was reverted due to the regression it caused by commit
      fca082c9.
      
      That regression was not root-caused by the original commit, it was just
      uncovered by it, and the real fix was done by Alan Stern in commit
      580da348
      
       ("Fix USB storage hang on
      command abort").
      
      We can thus re-introduce the change that was confirmed by Alan Jenkins
      to be still required by his odd card reader.

      AX.25: Fix sysctl registration if !CONFIG_AX25_DAMA_SLAVE · ffb20847
      Ralf Baechle authored
      Since 49ffcf8f
      
       ("sysctl: update
      sysctl_check_table") setting struct ctl_table.procname = NULL does no
      longer work as it used to the way the AX.25 code is expecting it to
      resulting in the AX.25 sysctl registration code to break if
      CONFIG_AX25_DAMA_SLAVE was not set as in some distribution kernels.
      Kernel releases from 2.6.24 are affected.

      bridge: Eliminate unnecessary forward delay · ef647f13
      Stephen Hemminger authored
      
      
      From: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com>
      
      Based upon original patch by Herbert Xu, which contained
      the following problem description:
      
      --------------------
      When the forward delay is set to zero, we still delay the setting
      of the forwarding state by one or possibly two timers depending
      on whether STP is enabled.  This could either turn out to be
      instantaneous, or horribly slow depending on the load of the
      machine.
      
      As there is nothing preventing us from enabling forwarding straight
      away, this patch eliminates this potential delay by executing the
      code directly if the forward delay is zero.
      
      The effect of this problem is that immediately after the carrier
      comes on a port, the bridge will drop all packets received from
      that port until it enters forwarding mode, thus causing unnecessary
      packet loss.
      
      Note that this patch doesn't fully remove the delay due to the
      link watcher.  We should also check the carrier state when we
      are about to drop an incoming packet because the port is disabled.
      But that's for another patch.
      --------------------
      
      This version of the fix takes a different approach, in that
      it just does the state change directly.
