      lib: Move fonts from drivers/video/console/ to lib/fonts/ · ee89bd6b
      Geert Uytterhoeven authored
      Several drivers need font support independent of CONFIG_VT, cfr. commit
      9cbce8d7e1dae0744ca4f68d62aa7de18196b6f4, "console/font: Refactor font
      support code selection logic").
      Hence move the fonts and their support logic from drivers/video/console/ to
      its own library directory lib/fonts/.
      This also allows to limit processing of drivers/video/console/Makefile to
      CONFIG_VT=y again.

      X.509: do not emit any informational output · a857c6e7
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      When building a kernel using 'make -s', I expect to see an empty output,
      except for build warnings and errors. The build_OID_registry code
      always prints one line when run, which is not helpful to most people
      building the kernels, and which makes it harder to automatically
      check for build warnings.
      Let's just remove the one line output.

      percpu-refcount: use RCU-sched insted of normal RCU · a4244454
      Tejun Heo authored
      percpu-refcount was incorrectly using preempt_disable/enable() for RCU
      critical sections against call_rcu().  6a24474d ("percpu-refcount:
      consistently use plain (non-sched) RCU") fixed it by converting the
      preepmtion operations with rcu_read_[un]lock() citing that there isn't
      any advantage in using sched-RCU over using the usual one; however,
      rcu_read_[un]lock() for the preemptible RCU implementation -
      CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU, chosen when CONFIG_PREEMPT - are slightly
      more expensive than preempt_disable/enable().
      In a contrived microbench which repeats the followings,
       - percpu_ref_get()
       - copy 32 bytes of data into percpu buffer
       - percpu_put_get()
       - copy 32 bytes of data into percpu buffer
      rcu_read_[un]lock() used in percpu_ref_get/put() makes it go slower by
      about 15% when compared to using sched-RCU.
      As the RCU critical sections are extremely short, using sched-RCU
      shouldn't have any latency implications.  Convert to RCU-sched.

      percpu-refcount: implement percpu_tryget() along with percpu_ref_kill_and_confirm() · dbece3a0
      Tejun Heo authored
      Implement percpu_tryget() which stops giving out references once the
      percpu_ref is visible as killed.  Because the refcnt is per-cpu,
      different CPUs will start to see a refcnt as killed at different
      points in time and tryget() may continue to succeed on subset of cpus
      for a while after percpu_ref_kill() returns.
      For use cases where it's necessary to know when all CPUs start to see
      the refcnt as dead, percpu_ref_kill_and_confirm() is added.  The new
      function takes an extra argument @confirm_kill which is invoked when
      the refcnt is guaranteed to be viewed as killed on all CPUs.
      While this isn't the prettiest interface, it doesn't force synchronous
      wait and is much safer than requiring the caller to do its own
      v2: Patch description rephrased to emphasize that tryget() may
          continue to succeed on some CPUs after kill() returns as suggested
          by Kent.
      v3: Function comment in percpu_ref_kill_and_confirm() updated warning
          people to not depend on the implied RCU grace period from the
          confirm callback as it's an implementation detail.

      percpu-refcount: implement percpu_ref_cancel_init() · bc497bd3
      Tejun Heo authored
      Normally, percpu_ref_init() initializes and percpu_ref_kill()
      initiates destruction which completes asynchronously.  The
      asynchronous destruction can be problematic in init failure path where
      the caller wants to destroy half-constructed object - distinguishing
      half-constructed objects from the usual release method can be painful
      for complex objects.
      This patch implements percpu_ref_cancel_init() which synchronously
      destroys the percpu_ref without invoking release.  To avoid
      unintentional misuses, the function requires the ref to have finished
      percpu_ref_init() but never used and triggers WARN otherwise.

      percpu-refcount: add __must_check to percpu_ref_init() and don't use... · acac7883
      Tejun Heo authored
      percpu-refcount: add __must_check to percpu_ref_init() and don't use ACCESS_ONCE() in percpu_ref_kill_rcu()
      Two small changes.
      * Unlike most init functions, percpu_ref_init() allocates memory and
        may fail.  Let's mark it with __must_check in case the caller
      * percpu_ref_kill_rcu() is unnecessarily using ACCESS_ONCE() to
        dereference @ref->pcpu_count, which can be misleading.  The pointer
        is guaranteed to be valid and visible and can't change underneath
        the function.  Drop ACCESS_ONCE().

        postfix for types and the type is gonna be used for a different type
        of callback too.
      * Add @ARG to function comments.

        function comment.

      MPILIB: disable usage of floating point registers on parisc · 70ef5578
      Helge Deller authored
      The umul_ppmm() macro for parisc uses the xmpyu assembler statement
      which does calculation via a floating point register.
      But usage of floating point registers inside the Linux kernel are not
      allowed and gcc will stop compilation due to the -mdisable-fpregs
      compiler option.
      Fix this by disabling the umul_ppmm() and udiv_qrnnd() macros. The
      mpilib will then use the generic built-in implementations instead.
