      License cleanup: add SPDX license identifier to uapi header files with no license · 6f52b16c
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      Many user space API headers are missing licensing information, which
      makes it hard for compliance tools to determine the correct license.
      By default are files without license information under the default
      license of the kernel, which is GPLV2.  Marking them GPLV2 would exclude
      them from being included in non GPLV2 code, which is obviously not
      intended. The user space API headers fall under the syscall exception
      which is in the kernels COPYING file:
         NOTE! This copyright does *not* cover user programs that use kernel
         services by normal system calls - this is merely considered normal use
         of the kernel, and does *not* fall under the heading of "derived work".
      otherwise syscall usage would not be possible.
      Update the files which contain no license information with an SPDX
      license identifier.  The chosen identifier is 'GPL-2.0 WITH
      Linux-syscall-note' which is the officially assigned identifier for the
      Linux syscall exception.  SPDX license identifiers are a legally binding
      shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text.
      This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and
      Philippe Ombredanne.  See the previous patch in this series for the
      methodology of how this patch was researched.

      x86, MCE: Retract most UAPI exports · f51bde6f
      Borislav Petkov authored
      Retract back most macro definitions which went into the
      user-visible mce.h header. Even though those bits are mostly
      hardware-defined/-architectural, their naming is not. If we export them
      to userspace, any kernel unification/renaming/cleanup cannot be done
      anymore since those are effectively cast in stone. Besides, if userspace
      wants those definitions, they can write their own defines and go crazy.

      cpu: convert 'cpu' and 'machinecheck' sysdev_class to a regular subsystem · 8a25a2fd
      Kay Sievers authored
      This moves the 'cpu sysdev_class' over to a regular 'cpu' subsystem
      and converts the devices to regular devices. The sysdev drivers are
      implemented as subsystem interfaces now.
      After all sysdev classes are ported to regular driver core entities, the
      sysdev implementation will be entirely removed from the kernel.
      Userspace relies on events and generic sysfs subsystem infrastructure
      from sysdev devices, which are made available with this conversion.

      ACPI, APEI, Generic Hardware Error Source memory error support · d334a491
      Huang Ying authored
      Generic Hardware Error Source provides a way to report platform
      hardware errors (such as that from chipset). It works in so called
      "Firmware First" mode, that is, hardware errors are reported to
      firmware firstly, then reported to Linux by firmware. This way, some
      non-standard hardware error registers or non-standard hardware link
      can be checked by firmware to produce more valuable hardware error
      information for Linux.
      Now, only SCI notification type and memory errors are supported. More
      notification type and hardware error type will be added later. These
      memory errors are reported to user space through /dev/mcelog via
      faking a corrected Machine Check, so that the error memory page can be
      offlined by /sbin/mcelog if the error count for one page is beyond the
      On some machines, Machine Check can not report physical address for
      some corrected memory errors, but GHES can do that. So this simplified
      GHES is implemented firstly.

      x86: Under BIOS control, restore AP's APIC_LVTTHMR to the BSP value · a2202aa2
      Yong Wang authored
      On platforms where the BIOS handles the thermal monitor interrupt,
      APIC_LVTTHMR on each logical CPU is programmed to generate a SMI
      and OS must not touch it.
      Unfortunately AP bringup sequence using INIT-SIPI-SIPI clears all
      the LVT entries except the mask bit. Essentially this results in
      all LVT entries including the thermal monitoring interrupt set
      to masked (clearing the bios programmed value for APIC_LVTTHMR).
      And this leads to kernel take over the thermal monitoring
      interrupt on AP's but not on BSP (leaving the bios programmed
      value only on BSP).
      As a result of this, we have seen system hangs when the thermal
      monitoring interrupt is generated.
      Fix this by reading the initial value of thermal LVT entry on
      BSP and if bios has taken over the control, then program the
      same value on all AP's and leave the thermal monitoring
      interrupt control on all the logical cpu's to the bios.

      x86, mce: Fix up MCE naming nomenclature · 5e09954a
      Borislav Petkov authored
      Prefix global/setup routines with "mcheck_" thus differentiating
      from the internal facilities prefixed with "mce_". Also, prefix
      the per cpu calls with mcheck_cpu and rename them to reflect the
      MCE setup hierarchy of calls better.
      There should be no functionality change resulting from this

      x86: EDAC: MCE: Fix MCE decoding callback logic · f436f8bb
      Ingo Molnar authored
      Make decoding of MCEs happen only on AMD hardware by registering a
      non-default callback only on CPU families which support it.
      While looking at the interaction of decode_mce() with the other MCE
      code i also noticed a few other things and made the following
       - Fixed the mce_decode() weak alias - a weak alias is really not
         good here, it should be a proper callback. A weak alias will be
         overriden if a piece of code is built into the kernel - not
         good, obviously.
       - The patch initializes the callback on AMD family 10h and 11h.
       - Added the more correct fallback printk of:
      	No support for human readable MCE decoding on this CPU type.
      	Transcribe the message and run it through 'mcelog --ascii' to decode.
         On CPUs that dont have a decoder.
       - Made the surrounding code more readable.
      Note that the callback allows us to have a default fallback -
      without having to check the CPU versions during the printout
      itself. When an EDAC module registers itself, it can install the
      decode-print function.
      (there's no unregister needed as this is core code.)
      version -v2 by Borislav Petkov:
       - add K8 to the set of supported CPUs
       - always build in edac_mce_amd since we use an early_initcall now
       - fix checkpatch warnings
