      lib: Introduce priority array area manager · 44091d29
      Jiri Pirko authored
      This introduces a infrastructure for management of linear priority
      areas. Priority order in an array matters, however order of items inside
      a priority group does not matter.
      As an initial implementation, L-sort algorithm is used. It is quite
      trivial. More advanced algorithm called P-sort will be introduced as a
      follow-up. The infrastructure is prepared for other algos.
      Alongside this, a testing module is introduced as well.

      atomic64: no need for CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_ATOMIC64_DEC_IF_POSITIVE · 51a02124
      Vineet Gupta authored
      This came to light when implementing native 64-bit atomics for ARCv2.
      The atomic64 self-test code uses CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_ATOMIC64_DEC_IF_POSITIVE
      to check whether atomic64_dec_if_positive() is available.  It seems it
      was needed when not every arch defined it.  However as of current code
      the Kconfig option seems needless
       - for CONFIG_GENERIC_ATOMIC64 it is auto-enabled in lib/Kconfig and a
         generic definition of API is present lib/atomic64.c
       - arches with native 64-bit atomics select it in arch/*/Kconfig and
         define the API in their headers
      So I see no point in keeping the Kconfig option
      Compile tested for:
       - blackfin (CONFIG_GENERIC_ATOMIC64)
       - x86 (!CONFIG_GENERIC_ATOMIC64)
       - ia64

      mm, kasan: stackdepot implementation. Enable stackdepot for SLAB · cd11016e
      Alexander Potapenko authored
      Implement the stack depot and provide CONFIG_STACKDEPOT.  Stack depot
      will allow KASAN store allocation/deallocation stack traces for memory
      chunks.  The stack traces are stored in a hash table and referenced by
      handles which reside in the kasan_alloc_meta and kasan_free_meta
      structures in the allocated memory chunks.
      IRQ stack traces are cut below the IRQ entry point to avoid unnecessary
      Right now stackdepot support is only enabled in SLAB allocator.  Once
      KASAN features in SLAB are on par with those in SLUB we can switch SLUB
      to stackdepot as well, thus removing the dependency on SLUB stack
      bookkeeping, which wastes a lot of memory.
      This patch is based on the "mm: kasan: stack depots" patch originally
      prepared by Dmitry Chernenkov.
      Joonsoo has said that he plans to reuse the stackdepot code for the
      mm/page_owner.c debugging facility.

      lib: sw842: select crc32 · 5b571677
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      The sw842 library code was merged in linux-4.1 and causes a very rare randconfig
      failure when CONFIG_CRC32 is not set:
          lib/built-in.o: In function `sw842_compress':
          oid_registry.c:(.text+0x12ddc): undefined reference to `crc32_be'
          lib/built-in.o: In function `sw842_decompress':
          oid_registry.c:(.text+0x137e4): undefined reference to `crc32_be'
      This adds an explict 'select CRC32' statement, similar to what the other users
      of the crc32 code have. In practice, CRC32 is always enabled anyway because
      over 100 other symbols select it.

      nd_blk: change aperture mapping from WC to WB · 67a3e8fe
      Ross Zwisler authored
      This should result in a pretty sizeable performance gain for reads.  For
      rough comparison I did some simple read testing using PMEM to compare
      reads of write combining (WC) mappings vs write-back (WB).  This was
      done on a random lab machine.
      PMEM reads from a write combining mapping:
      	# dd of=/dev/null if=/dev/pmem0 bs=4096 count=100000
      	100000+0 records in
      	100000+0 records out
      	409600000 bytes (410 MB) copied, 9.2855 s, 44.1 MB/s
      PMEM reads from a write-back mapping:
      	# dd of=/dev/null if=/dev/pmem0 bs=4096 count=1000000
      	1000000+0 records in
      	1000000+0 records out
      	4096000000 bytes (4.1 GB) copied, 3.44034 s, 1.2 GB/s
      To be able to safely support a write-back aperture I needed to add
      support for the "read flush" _DSM flag, as outlined in the DSM spec:
      This flag tells the ND BLK driver that it needs to flush the cache lines
      associated with the aperture after the aperture is moved but before any
      new data is read.  This ensures that any stale cache lines from the
      previous contents of the aperture will be discarded from the processor
      cache, and the new data will be read properly from the DIMM.  We know
      that the cache lines are clean and will be discarded without any
      writeback because either a) the previous aperture operation was a read,
      and we never modified the contents of the aperture, or b) the previous
      aperture operation was a write and we must have written back the dirtied
      contents of the aperture to the DIMM before the I/O was completed.
      In order to add support for the "read flush" flag I needed to add a
      generic routine to invalidate cache lines, mmio_flush_range().  This is
      protected by the ARCH_HAS_MMIO_FLUSH Kconfig variable, and is currently
      only supported on x86.

      lib: scatterlist: add sg splitting function · f8bcbe62
      Robert Jarzmik authored
      Sometimes a scatter-gather has to be split into several chunks, or sub
      scatter lists. This happens for example if a scatter list will be
      handled by multiple DMA channels, each one filling a part of it.
      A concrete example comes with the media V4L2 API, where the scatter list
      is allocated from userspace to hold an image, regardless of the
      knowledge of how many DMAs will fill it :
       - in a simple RGB565 case, one DMA will pump data from the camera ISP
         to memory
       - in the trickier YUV422 case, 3 DMAs will pump data from the camera
         ISP pipes, one for pipe Y, one for pipe U and one for pipe V
      For these cases, it is necessary to split the original scatter list into
      multiple scatter lists, which is the purpose of this patch.
      The guarantees that are required for this patch are :
       - the intersection of spans of any couple of resulting scatter lists is
       - the union of spans of all resulting scatter lists is a subrange of
         the span of the original scatter list.
       - streaming DMA API operations (mapping, unmapping) should not happen
         both on both the resulting and the original scatter list. It's either
         the first or the later ones.
       - the caller is reponsible to call kfree() on the resulting

      lib: add software 842 compression/decompression · 2da572c9
      Dan Streetman authored
      Add 842-format software compression and decompression functions.
      Update the MAINTAINERS 842 section to include the new files.
      The 842 compression function can compress any input data into the 842
      compression format.  The 842 decompression function can decompress any
      standard-format 842 compressed data - specifically, either a compressed
      data buffer created by the 842 software compression function, or a
      compressed data buffer created by the 842 hardware compressor (located
      in PowerPC coprocessors).
      The 842 compressed data format is explained in the header comments.
      This is used in a later patch to provide a full software 842 compression
      and decompression crypto interface.

      Make ARCH_HAS_FAST_MULTIPLIER a real config variable · 72d93104
      Linus Torvalds authored
      It used to be an ad-hoc hack defined by the x86 version of
      <asm/bitops.h> that enabled a couple of library routines to know whether
      an integer multiply is faster than repeated shifts and additions.
      This just makes it use the real Kconfig system instead, and makes x86
      (which was the only architecture that did this) select the option.
      NOTE! Even for x86, this really is kind of wrong.  If we cared, we would
      probably not enable this for builds optimized for netburst (P4), where
      shifts-and-adds are generally faster than multiplies.  This patch does
      *not* change that kind of logic, though, it is purely a syntactic change
      with no code changes.
      This was triggered by the fact that we have other places that really
      want to know "do I want to expand multiples by constants by hand or
      not", particularly the hash generation code.

      lib: Export interval_tree · a88cc108
      Chris Wilson authored
      lib/interval_tree.c provides a simple interface for an interval-tree
      (an augmented red-black tree) but is only built when testing the generic
      macros for building interval-trees. For drivers with modest needs,
      export the simple interval-tree library as is.
      v2: Lots of help from Michel Lespinasse to only compile the code
          as required:
          - make INTERVAL_TREE a config option
          - make INTERVAL_TREE_TEST select the library functions
            and sanitize the filenames & Makefile
          - prepare interval_tree for being built as a module if required
