      ps3: Remove deprecated create_singlethread_workqueue · f0200c02
      Bhaktipriya Shridhar authored
      The workqueue "ps3av->wq" queues a single work item &ps3av->work and hence
      doesn't require ordering. It is involved in waking up ps3avd to do the
      video mode setting and hence it's not being used on a memory reclaim
      path. Hence, it has been converted to use system_wq.
      System workqueues have been able to handle high level of concurrency
      for a long time now and hence it's not required to have a singlethreaded
      workqueue just to gain concurrency. Unlike a dedicated per-cpu workqueue
      created with create_singlethread_workqueue(), system_wq allows multiple
      work items to overlap executions even on the same CPU; however, a
      per-cpu workqueue doesn't have any CPU locality or global ordering
      guarantee unless the target CPU is explicitly specified and thus the
      increase of local concurrency shouldn't make any difference.
      The work item has been flushed in ps3av_remove to ensure that
      there are no pending tasks while disconnecting the driver.

      powerpc: Remove all usages of NO_IRQ · ef24ba70
      Michael Ellerman authored
      NO_IRQ has been == 0 on powerpc for just over ten years (since commit
      0ebfff14 ("[POWERPC] Add new interrupt mapping core and change
      platforms to use it")). It's also 0 on most other arches.
      Although it's fairly harmless, every now and then it causes confusion
      when a driver is built on powerpc and another arch which doesn't define
      NO_IRQ. There's at least 6 definitions of NO_IRQ in drivers/, at least
      some of which are to work around that problem.
      So we'd like to remove it. This is fairly trivial in the arch code, we
      just convert:
          if (irq == NO_IRQ)	to	if (!irq)
          if (irq != NO_IRQ)	to	if (irq)
          irq = NO_IRQ;	to	irq = 0;
          return NO_IRQ;	to	return 0;
      And a few other odd cases as well.
      At least for now we keep the #define NO_IRQ, because there is driver
      code that uses NO_IRQ and the fixes to remove those will go via other
      Note we also change some occurrences in PPC sound drivers, drivers/ps3,
      and drivers/macintosh.

      ps3-vuart: don't use PREPARE_WORK · 4a8bb7f5
      Tejun Heo authored
      PREPARE_[DELAYED_]WORK() are being phased out.  They have few users
      and a nasty surprise in terms of reentrancy guarantee as workqueue
      considers work items to be different if they don't have the same work
      ps3_vuart wasn't overriding the work item with multiple work functions
      but was using NULL for INIT_WORK() and then single PREPARE_WORK() to
      set the work function.  We can simply invoke INIT_WORK() with the work
      function and remove the PREPARE_WORK() usage.
      It would probably be best to route this with other related updates
      through the workqueue tree.

      Drivers: misc: remove __dev* attributes. · 0fe763c5
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option.  As a result, the __dev*
      markings need to be removed.
      This change removes the use of __devinit, __devexit_p, __devinitdata,
      __devinitconst, and __devexit from these drivers.
      Based on patches originally written by Bill Pemberton, but redone by me
      in order to handle some of the coding style issues better, by hand.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.
