      powerpc: Fix build warning on 32-bit PPC · 8ae679c4
      Larry Finger authored
      I am getting the following warning when I build kernel 4.9-git on my
      PowerBook G4 with a 32-bit PPC processor:
          AS      arch/powerpc/kernel/misc_32.o
        arch/powerpc/kernel/misc_32.S:299:7: warning: "CONFIG_FSL_BOOKE" is not defined [-Wundef]
      This problem is evident after commit 989cea5c ("kbuild: prevent
      lib-ksyms.o rebuilds"); however, this change in kbuild only exposes an
      error that has been in the code since 2005 when this source file was
      created.  That was with commit 9994a338 ("powerpc: Introduce
      entry_{32,64}.S, misc_{32,64}.S, systbl.S").
      The offending line does not make a lot of sense.  This error does not
      seem to cause any errors in the executable, thus I am not recommending
      that it be applied to any stable versions.
      Thanks to Nicholas Piggin for suggesting this solution.
      Fixes: 9994a338 ("powerpc: Introduce entry_{32,64}.S, misc_{32,64}.S, systbl.S")

      avoid spurious "may be used uninitialized" warning · d33d5a6c
      Linus Torvalds authored
      The timer type simplifications caused a new gcc warning:
        drivers/base/power/domain.c: In function ‘genpd_runtime_suspend’:
        drivers/base/power/domain.c:562:14: warning: ‘time_start’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
           elapsed_ns = ktime_to_ns(ktime_sub(ktime_get(), time_start));
      despite the actual use of "time_start" not having changed in any way.
      It appears that simply changing the type of ktime_t from a union to a
      plain scalar type made gcc check the use.
      The variable wasn't actually used uninitialized, but gcc apparently
      failed to notice that the conditional around the use was exactly the
      same as the conditional around the initialization of that variable.
      Add an unnecessary initialization just to shut up the compiler.

           timespec alike storage got removed due to the Y2038 limitations
           some time ago.
           That leaves the odd union access around for no reason. Clean it up.
        Both changes have been done with coccinelle and a small amount of
        manual mopping up"

      mm: add PageWaiters indicating tasks are waiting for a page bit · 62906027
      Nicholas Piggin authored
      Add a new page flag, PageWaiters, to indicate the page waitqueue has
      tasks waiting. This can be tested rather than testing waitqueue_active
      which requires another cacheline load.
      This bit is always set when the page has tasks on page_waitqueue(page),
      and is set and cleared under the waitqueue lock. It may be set when
      there are no tasks on the waitqueue, which will cause a harmless extra
      wakeup check that will clears the bit.
      The generic bit-waitqueue infrastructure is no longer used for pages.
      Instead, waitqueues are used directly with a custom key type. The
      generic code was not flexible enough to have PageWaiters manipulation
      under the waitqueue lock (which simplifies concurrency).
      This improves the performance of page lock intensive microbenchmarks by
      Putting two bits in the same word opens the opportunity to remove the
      memory barrier between clearing the lock bit and testing the waiters
      bit, after some work on the arch primitives (e.g., ensuring memory
      operand widths match and cover both bits).

      ktime: Cleanup ktime_set() usage · 8b0e1953
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      ktime_set(S,N) was required for the timespec storage type and is still
      useful for situations where a Seconds and Nanoseconds part of a time value
      needs to be converted. For anything where the Seconds argument is 0, this
      is pointless and can be replaced with a simple assignment.

      ktime: Get rid of the union · 2456e855
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      ktime is a union because the initial implementation stored the time in
      scalar nanoseconds on 64 bit machine and in a endianess optimized timespec
      variant for 32bit machines. The Y2038 cleanup removed the timespec variant
      and switched everything to scalar nanoseconds. The union remained, but
      become completely pointless.
      Get rid of the union and just keep ktime_t as simple typedef of type s64.
      The conversion was done with coccinelle and some manual mopping up.

      Thomas Gleixner authored
      The mpic is either the main interrupt controller or is cascaded behind a
      GIC. The mpic is single instance and the modes are mutually exclusive, so
      there is no reason to have seperate cpu hotplug states.
