mac of the request sender.  In the 2.6 kernel arp_reply is responsible

[PATCH] dm: mpath: use noflush suspending

Implement the pushback feature for the multipath target.

The pushback request is used when:
  1) there are no valid paths;
  2) queue_if_no_path was set;
  3) a suspend is being issued with the DMF_NOFLUSH_SUSPENDING flag.
     Otherwise bios are returned to applications with -EIO.

To check whether queue_if_no_path is specified or not, you need to check
both queue_if_no_path and saved_queue_if_no_path, because presuspend saves
the original queue_if_no_path value to saved_queue_if_no_path.

The check for 1 already exists in both map_io() and do_end_io().
So this patch adds __must_push_back() to check 2 and 3.

Kiyoshi Ueda [Fri, 8 Dec 2006 10:41:09 +0000 (02:41 -0800)]
[PATCH] dm: suspend: add noflush pushback

In device-mapper I/O is sometimes queued within targets for later processing.
For example the multipath target can be configured to store I/O when no paths
are available instead of returning it -EIO.

This patch allows the device-mapper core to instruct a target to transfer the
contents of any such in-target queue back into the core.  This frees up the
resources used by the target so the core can replace that target with an
alternative one and then resend the I/O to it.  Without this patch the only
way to change the target in such circumstances involves returning the I/O with
an error back to the filesystem/application.  In the multipath case, this
patch will let us add new paths for existing I/O to try after all the existing
paths have failed.

    DMF_NOFLUSH_SUSPENDING
    ----------------------

If the DM_NOFLUSH_FLAG ioctl option is specified at suspend time, the
DMF_NOFLUSH_SUSPENDING flag is set in md->flags during dm_suspend().  It
is always cleared before dm_suspend() returns.

The flag must be visible while the target is flushing pending I/Os so it
is set before presuspend where the flush starts and unset after the wait
for md->pending where the flush ends.

Target drivers can check this flag by calling dm_noflush_suspending().

    DM_MAPIO_REQUEUE / DM_ENDIO_REQUEUE
    -----------------------------------

A target's map() function can now return DM_MAPIO_REQUEUE to request the
device mapper core queue the bio.

Similarly, a target's end_io() function can return DM_ENDIO_REQUEUE to request
the same.  This has been labelled 'pushback'.

The __map_bio() and clone_endio() functions in the core treat these return
values as errors and call dec_pending() to end the I/O.

    dec_pending
    -----------

dec_pending() saves the pushback request in struct dm_io->error.  Once all
the split clones have ended, dec_pending() will put the original bio on
the md->pushback list.  Note that this supercedes any I/O errors.

It is possible for the suspend with DM_NOFLUSH_FLAG to be aborted while
in progress (e.g. by user interrupt).  dec_pending() checks for this and
returns -EIO if it happened.

    pushdback list and pushback_lock
    --------------------------------

The bio is queued on md->pushback temporarily in dec_pending(), and after
all pending I/Os return, md->pushback is merged into md->deferred in
dm_suspend() for re-issuing at resume time.

md->pushback_lock protects md->pushback.
The lock should be held with irq disabled because dec_pending() can be
called from interrupt context.

Queueing bios to md->pushback in dec_pending() must be done atomically
with the check for DMF_NOFLUSH_SUSPENDING flag.  So md->pushback_lock is
held when checking the flag.  Otherwise dec_pending() may queue a bio to
md->pushback after the interrupted dm_suspend() flushes md->pushback.
Then the bio would be left in md->pushback.

Flag setting in dm_suspend() can be done without md->pushback_lock because
the flag is checked only after presuspend and the set value is already
made visible via the target's presuspend function.

The flag can be checked without md->pushback_lock (e.g. the first part of
the dec_pending() or target drivers), because the flag is checked again
with md->pushback_lock held when the bio is really queued to md->pushback
as described above.  So even if the flag is cleared after the lockless
checkings, the bio isn't left in md->pushback but returned to applications
with -EIO.

    Other notes on the current patch
    --------------------------------

- md->pushback is added to the struct mapped_device instead of using
  md->deferred directly because md->io_lock which protects md->deferred is
  rw_semaphore and can't be used in interrupt context like dec_pending(),
  and md->io_lock protects the DMF_BLOCK_IO flag of md->flags too.

- Don't issue lock_fs() in dm_suspend() if the DM_NOFLUSH_FLAG
  ioctl option is specified, because I/Os generated by lock_fs() would be
  pushed back and never return if there were no valid devices.

- If an error occurs in dm_suspend() after the DMF_NOFLUSH_SUSPENDING
  flag is set, md->pushback must be flushed because I/Os may be queued to
  the list already.  (flush_and_out label in dm_suspend())

    Test results
    ------------

I have tested using multipath target with the next patch.

The following tests are for regression/compatibility:
  - I/Os succeed when valid paths exist;
  - I/Os fail when there are no valid paths and queue_if_no_path is not
    set;
  - I/Os are queued in the multipath target when there are no valid paths and
    queue_if_no_path is set;
  - The queued I/Os above fail when suspend is issued without the
    DM_NOFLUSH_FLAG ioctl option.  I/Os spanning 2 multipath targets also
    fail.

The following tests are for the normal code path of new pushback feature:
  - Queued I/Os in the multipath target are flushed from the target
    but don't return when suspend is issued with the DM_NOFLUSH_FLAG
    ioctl option;
  - The I/Os above are queued in the multipath target again when
    resume is issued without path recovery;
  - The I/Os above succeed when resume is issued after path recovery
    or table load;
  - Queued I/Os in the multipath target succeed when resume is issued
    with the DM_NOFLUSH_FLAG ioctl option after table load. I/Os
    spanning 2 multipath targets also succeed.

The following tests are for the error paths of the new pushback feature:
  - When the bdget_disk() fails in dm_suspend(), the
    DMF_NOFLUSH_SUSPENDING flag is cleared and I/Os already queued to the
    pushback list are flushed properly.
  - When suspend with the DM_NOFLUSH_FLAG ioctl option is interrupted,
      o I/Os which had already been queued to the pushback list
        at the time don't return, and are re-issued at resume time;
      o I/Os which hadn't been returned at the time return with EIO.

The patch has no effect on existing behaviour.

o Reserve return values of 2 and above from target map functions.

  so we can assign new meaning to higher values in future.

  The new definition of return values from target map functions is:
      < 0 : error
      = 0 : The target will handle the io (DM_MAPIO_SUBMITTED).
      = 1 : Mapping completed (DM_MAPIO_REMAPPED).
      > 1 : Reserved (undefined).  Previously this was the same as '= 1'.

[PATCH] backlight: do not power off backlight when unregistering

ACPI drivers like ibm-acpi are moving to the backlight sysfs
infrastructure.  During ibm-acpi testing, I have noticed that
backlight_device_unregister() sets the display brightness and power to
zero.

This causes the display to be dimmed on ibm-acpi module removal.  It will
affect all other ACPI drivers that are being converted to use the backlight
class, as well.  It also affects a number of framebuffer devices that are
used on desktops and laptops which might also not want such behaviour.

Since working around this behaviour requires undesireable hacks, Richard
Purdie decided that we would be better off reverting the changes in the
sysfs class, and adding the code to dim and power off the backlight device
to the drivers that want it.  This patch is my attempt to do so.

Patch against latest linux-2.6.git.  Changes untested, as I lack the
required hardware.  Still, they are trivial enough that, apart from typos,
there is little chance of getting them wrong.

[PATCH] softcursor.c: avoid unaligned accesses

Fix some possible unaligned accesses when accessing fields of 'image'
pointer.  Indeed this pointer was obtained by allocating a block of memory
that embeds a temporary array plus an image structure.  The temporary
buffer was located at the start of the allocated block and depending on its
size, the image structure which comes right after can be unaligned.

For example when using mini fonts (4x6) (cursor's width is 4 and its height
is 6) the temporary buf size is 6 bytes.

Therefore this patch moves the image structure to the start of the block
and moves the temporary buffer right after.  It makes 'image' pointer
always aligned and since the tempo buf is a buffer of char, it's always
correctly aligned as well.

It also fixes the file header alignement.

cache the shared register per-channel and hope that it won't get out ouf
sync.

Set the PIO fallback mode to PIO0 for the slave drive as well as master --
there was no point in having them different (most probably a resutl of
typo).

Do a bit of reformat and cleanup while at it...

prepares for fixing the bug with the wrong values being returned in the
sys_sysctl interface.

The function proc_do_ipc_string() was misnamed as it never handled strings.
It's magic of when to work with strings and when to work with longs belonged
