pktcdvd: remove broken dev_t export of class devices

The pktcdvd created class devices only export some sysfs files,
but have no char dev_t registered in the driver.

At class device creation time they copy the dev_t value of the
block device to the char device, wich will register a new char
device in the driver core and userspace, with a conflicting dev_t

In many cases the class devices dev_t just points to a random
USB device. This fixes the sysfs "duplicate entry" errors.

        percpu counter: clean up percpu_counter_sum_and_set()

Before this patch we had the following:

percpu_counter_sum(): return the percpu_counter's value

percpu_counter_sum_and_set(): return the percpu_counter's value, copying
that value into the central value and zeroing the per-cpu counters before

After this patch, percpu_counter_sum_and_set() has gone, and
percpu_counter_sum() gets the old percpu_counter_sum_and_set()

Problem is, as Eric points out, the old percpu_counter_sum_and_set()
functionality was racy and wrong.  It zeroes out counters on "other" cpus,
without holding any locks which will prevent races agaist updates from
those other CPUS.

This patch reverts 1f7c14c62ce63805f9574664a6c6de3633d4a354.  This means
that percpu_counter_sum_and_set() still has the race, but
percpu_counter_sum() does not.

Note that this is not a simple revert - ext4 has since started using
percpu_counter_sum() for its dirty_blocks counter as well.

Note that this revert patch changes percpu_counter_sum() semantics.

Before the patch, a call to percpu_counter_sum() will bring the counter's
central counter mostly up-to-date, so a following percpu_counter_read()
will return a close value.

After this patch, a call to percpu_counter_sum() will leave the counter's
central accumulator unaltered, so a subsequent call to
percpu_counter_read() can now return a significantly inaccurate result.

If there is any code in the tree which was introduced after
e8ced39d5e8911c662d4d69a342b9d053eaaac4e was merged, and which depends
upon the new percpu_counter_sum() semantics, that code will break.

ieee1394: node manager causes up to ~3.25s delay in freezing tasks

The firewire nodemanager function "nodemgr_host_thread" contains a loop
that calls try_to_freeze near the top of the loop, but then delays for
up to 3.25 seconds (plus time to do work) before getting back to the top
of the loop. When starting a cycle post-boot, this doesn't seem to bite,
but it is causing a noticeable delay at boot time, when freezing
processes prior to starting to read the image.

The following patch adds invocation of try_to_freeze to the subloops
that are used in the body of this function. With these additions, the
time to freeze when starting to resume at boot time is virtually zero.
I'm no expert on firewire, and so don't know that we shouldn't check
the return value and jump back to the top of the loop or such like after
being frozen, but I submit it for your consideration.

The delay until nodemgr freezes was up to 0.25s (plus time for node

2.6.28-rc1, hence much more noticeable.

try_to_freeze() without any jump is correct.  The surrounding code in

end up placing the stack at a very low address, where it will bump into

heap or both, causing many interesting crashes.

MIPS: Malta: Add back RTC support

With the conversion of MIPS to RTC_LIB the old RTC driver CONFIG_RTC became
unselectable.  Fix by setting up a platform device.  Also enable
RTC_CLASS so system time gets set from RTC on kernel initialization.

MIPS: Fix potential DOS by untrusted user app.

On a 64 bit kernel if an o32 syscall was made with a syscall number less
than 4000, we would read the function from outside of the bounds of the

While we were at it we reworked the 32 bit version as well to use fewer
instructions.  Both 32 and 64 bit versions are use the same code now.
