[PATCH] forcedeth: Disable INTx when enabling MSI in forcedeth

At least some nforce cards continue to send legacy interrupts when MSI
is enabled, and these interrupts are treated as unhandled by the
kernel. This patch disables legacy interrupts explicitly when enabling
MSI mode.

The correct fix is to change the MSI infrastructure to disable legacy
interrupts when enabling MSI, but this is potentially risky if the
device isn&#39;t PCI-2.3 or is quirky, so the correct fix is going into
mainline, while patches like this one go into -stable.

Legend has it that it is most correct to disable legacy interrupts
before enabling MSI, but the mainline patch does it in the other
order, and this patch is &quot;obviously&quot; the same as mainline.

[PATCH] x86: Fix boot hang due to nmi watchdog init code

2.6.19  stopped booting &#40;or booted based on build/config&#41; on our x86_64
systems due to a bug introduced in 2.6.19.  check_nmi_watchdog schedules an
IPI on all cpus to  busy wait on a flag, but fails to set the busywait
flag if NMI functionality is disabled.  This causes the secondary cpus
to spin in an endless loop, causing the kernel bootup to hang.
Depending upon the build, the  busywait flag got overwritten &#40;stack variable&#41;
and caused  the kernel to bootup on certain builds.  Following patch fixes
the bug by setting the busywait flag before returning from check_nmi_watchdog.
I guess using a stack variable is not good here as the calling function could
potentially return while the busy wait loop is still spinning on the flag.

AK: I redid the patch significantly to be cleaner

[PATCH] m32r: make userspace headers platform-independent

The m32r kernel 2.6.18-rc1 or after cause build errors of &quot;unknown isa
configuration&quot; for userspace application programs, such as glibc, gdb, etc.

This is because the recent kernel do not include linux/config.h not to expose
kernel headers for userspace.

To fix the above compile errors, this patch fixes two headers ptrace.h and
sigcontext.h for m32r and makes them platform-independent.

[PATCH] softirq: remove BUG_ONs which can incorrectly trigger

It is possible to have tasklets get scheduled before softirqd has had a chance
to spawn on all CPUs.  This is totally harmless; after success during action
CPU_UP_PREPARE, action CPU_ONLINE will be called, which immediately wakes
softirqd on the appropriate CPU to process the already pending tasklets.  So
there is no danger of having a missed wakeup for any tasklets that were
already pending.

In particular, i386 is affected by this during startup, and is visible when
using a very large initrd; during the time it takes for the initrd to be
decompressed, a timer IRQ can come in and schedule RCU callbacks.  It is also
possible that resending of a hardware IRQ via a softirq triggers the same bug.

Because of different timing conditions, this shows up in all emulators and
virtual machines tested, including Xen, VMware, Virtual PC, and Qemu.  It is
also possible to trigger on native hardware with a large enough initrd,
although I don&#39;t have a reliable case demonstrating that.

[PATCH] autofs: fix error code path in autofs_fill_sb&#40;&#41;

When kernel is compiled with old version of autofs &#40;CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS&#41;, and
new &#40;observed at least with 5.x.x&#41; automount deamon is started, kernel
correctly reports incompatible version of kernel and userland daemon, but
then screws things up instead of correct handling of the error:

 autofs: kernel does not match daemon version

 but there are no more locks to release!

The problem: autofs_fill_super&#40;&#41; returns EINVAL to get_sb_nodev&#40;&#41;, but

kill_anon_super&#40;&#41; is in the autofs_kill_sb&#40;&#41; callback, which is called by
deactivate_super&#40;&#41; at proper time, when the superblock is ready to be

I can see the same faulty codepath also in autofs4.  This patch solves
issues in both filesystems in a same way - it postpones the
kill_anon_super&#40;&#41; until the proper time is signalized by deactivate_super&#40;&#41;
calling the kill_sb&#40;&#41; callback.

[PATCH] XFRM: Use output device disable_xfrm for forwarded packets

Currently the behaviour of disable_xfrm is inconsistent between
locally generated and forwarded packets. For locally generated
packets disable_xfrm disables the policy lookup if it is set on
the output device, for forwarded traffic however it looks at the
input device. This makes it impossible to disable xfrm on all
devices but a dummy device and use normal routing to direct
traffic to that device.

Always use the output device when checking disable_xfrm.

in match/target hook validation. mark_source_chains builds a bitmask
for each rule representing the hooks it can be reached from, which is
then used by the matches and targets to make sure they are only called
from valid hooks. The patch moved the match/target specific validation
before the mark_source_chains call, at which point the mask is always zero.

This patch returns back to the old order and moves the standard checks
to mark_source_chains. This allows to get rid of a special case for
standard targets as a nice side-effect.

[PATCH] SUNHME: Fix for sunhme failures on x86

The following patch fixes the failure of sunhme drivers on x86 hosts

[PATCH] Revert &quot;ACPI: SCI interrupt source override&quot;

This reverts commit 281ea49b0c294649a6de47a6f8fbe5611137726b,
which broke ACPI Interrupt source overrides that move
the SCI from one IRQ in PIC mode to another in IOAPIC mode.

If the SCI shared an interrupt line with another device,
this would result in a &quot;irq 18: nobody cared&quot; type failure.

[PATCH] NET_SCHED: policer: restore compatibility with old iproute binaries

The tc actions increased the size of struct tc_police, which broke
compatibility with old iproute binaries since both the act_police
and the old NET_CLS_POLICE code check for an exact size match.

Since the new members are not even used, the simple fix is to also
accept the size of the old structure. Dumping is not affected since
old userspace will receive a bigger structure, which is handled fine.

No need to revisit a chain we&#39;d already finished with during

[PATCH] softmac: remove netif_tx_disable when scanning

In the scan section of ieee80211softmac, network transmits are disabled.
When SoftMAC re-enables transmits, it may override the wishes of a driver
that may have very good reasons for disabling transmits. At least one failure
in bcm43xx can be traced to this problem. In addition, several unexplained
problems may arise from the unexpected enabling of transmits.
