[PATCH] 2.5.7-pre2 IDE 22a

- Apply more patches from Vojtech Pavlik for the handling of host chip setup.
   Hopefully they are settled now.

- Kill unused CONFIG_BLK_DEV_MODES

- Push register addressing down in to task_vlb_sync.

- Make the taskfile parsing stuff actually readable. This is compressing the
   code by an incredible amount. We use just one function doing the whole
   scanning right now. This should make sure that the IRQ handler used by a
   particular command is always right.  I didn't introduce typos hopefully
   here.

- Don't call ide_handler_parser as argument for do_taskfile() any longer. We
   have killed this function by coalescing it's functionality with
   ide_cmd_type_parser() anyway.

- Kill unused SLC90E66 code, which Vojtech apparently missed in his patch.

- sync up with 2.5.7-pre2

some default configuration variables which are not used anylonger. So time for
the next patch stage.

Paul Stewart [Sun, 17 Mar 2002 02:14:24 +0000 (18:14 -0800)]
USB Urefs for hid-core/hiddev

  I've written a patch Vojtech and I discussed for enhancing the
hiddev code to optionally provide more detailed output on read().
The old functionality is still supported by default, and in
situations where HID usage codes are unique across reports, the
old method is still preferable due to its terseness.

  The new method provides the ability to determine exactly which
value has changed, in cases where the HID usage codes are not
unique.  It also provides a means to optionally receive notification
when input reports are received from the device, whether or not
any of the values in the report have changed.

  The details of the changes are as follows:

  - All current code behaves identically

  - A new ioctl pair HIDIOCGFLAG/HIDIOCSFLAG gets and clears
    flags on the hiddev device.

  - If you set the flag HIDDEV_FLAG_UREF, the read() call switches
    from reading hiddev_event structures to hiddev_usage_ref
    structures.  The change takes effect immediately, even to
    already queued events that haven't been read() yet.  Here's
    an example of enabling FLAG_UREF:

    {
        int flag = HIDDEV_FLAG_UREF;
        if (ioctl(fd, HIDIOCSFLAG, &flag) != 0) {
                perror("ioctl");
                exit(1);
        }
    }

  - With the HIDDEV_FLAG_REPORT set (which is only allowed if
    HIDDEV_FLAG_UREF is also set), there is a special uref that
    will be read() in addition to the ones corresponding to
    changes in the device state: when uref.field_index is set to
    HID_FIELD_INDEX_NONE, this uref is a notification that the
    report referred to by report_type and report_id has been
    received from the device.  This can be useful in situations
    when the notification of the arrival of a report is useful
    even if there is no change in state.

Mikael Pettersson [Fri, 15 Mar 2002 07:22:10 +0000 (23:22 -0800)]
[PATCH] boot_cpu_data corruption on SMP x86

The patch below eliminates a case of boot_cpu_data corruption
on SMP x86 machines. This was first observed on SMP Athlons,
but it also affects SMP Intel boxes in a less serious way.

When the secondary processors boot and execute head.S:checkCPUtype,
the code performs a 32-bit write of a small constant to the
byte-sized variable boot_cpu_data.x86 (X86 in head.S). Since the
write is 32-bit, it also writes zeros to the following 3 bytes,
which clobbers the x86_vendor, x86_model, and x86_mask fields
previously set up by check_bugs()'s call to identify_cpu().
Thus, after smp_init(), boot_cpu_data will _always_ identify
the CPU as an Intel (X86_VENDOR_INTEL == 0 in processor.h) with
model 0 and stepping 0.

The effect in standard kernels is not catastrophic, since:
(a) most SMP x86 boxes are Intel
(b) most uses of x86_vendor occur before smp_init() or reference
    the SMP cpu_data[] array
(c) most post-boot references to boot_cpu_data occur in the
    cpu_has_XXX macros which only read the x86_capability[] array
However, third-party extensions (like my x86 performance-monitoring
conters driver) can get seriously confused by this mis-identification.

* nfsd_linkage ugliness is gone.
* getfs and getfh demonstrate (rather trivial) example of "descriptor as
  transaction descriptor" behaviour.
