      Delete filenames in comments. · 835c34a1
      Dave Jones authored
      Since the x86 merge, lots of files that referenced their own filenames
      are no longer correct.  Rather than keep them up to date, just delete
      them, as they add no real value.
      - fix up comment formatting in scx200_32.c
      - Remove a credit from myself in setup_64.c from a time when we had no SCM
      - remove longwinded history from tsc_32.c which can be figured out from

      Revert "[PATCH] x86: __pa and __pa_symbol address space separation" · e3ebadd9
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This was broken.  It adds complexity, for no good reason.  Rather than
      separate __pa() and __pa_symbol(), we should deprecate __pa_symbol(),
      and preferably __pa() too - and just use "virt_to_phys()" instead, which
      is more readable and has nicer semantics.
      However, right now, just undo the separation, and make __pa_symbol() be
      the exact same as __pa().  That fixes the bugs this patch introduced,
      and we can do the fairly obvious cleanups later.
      Do the new __phys_addr() function (which is now the actual workhorse for
      the unified __pa()/__pa_symbol()) as a real external function, that way
      all the potential issues with compile/link-time optimizations of
      constant symbol addresses go away, and we can also, if we choose to, add
      more sanity-checking of the argument.

      [PATCH] x86: __pa and __pa_symbol address space separation · 0dbf7028
      Vivek Goyal authored
      Currently __pa_symbol is for use with symbols in the kernel address
      map and __pa is for use with pointers into the physical memory map.
      But the code is implemented so you can usually interchange the two.
      __pa which is much more common can be implemented much more cheaply
      if it is it doesn't have to worry about any other kernel address
      spaces.  This is especially true with a relocatable kernel as
      __pa_symbol needs to peform an extra variable read to resolve
      the address.
      There is a third macro that is added for the vsyscall data
      __pa_vsymbol for finding the physical addesses of vsyscall pages.
      Most of this patch is simply sorting through the references to
      __pa or __pa_symbol and using the proper one.  A little of
      it is continuing to use a physical address when we have it
      instead of recalculating it several times.
      swapper_pgd is now NULL.  leave_mm now uses init_mm.pgd
      and init_mm.pgd is initialized at boot (instead of compile time)
      to the physmem virtual mapping of init_level4_pgd.  The
      physical address changed.
      Except for the for EMPTY_ZERO page all of the remaining references
      to __pa_symbol appear to be during kernel initialization.  So this
      should reduce the cost of __pa in the common case, even on a relocated
      As this is technically a semantic change we need to be on the lookout
      for anything I missed.  But it works for me (tm).

      [PATCH] Avoid overwriting the current pgd (V4, x86_64) · 4bfaaef0
      Magnus Damm authored
      kexec: Avoid overwriting the current pgd (V4, x86_64)
      This patch upgrades the x86_64-specific kexec code to avoid overwriting the
      current pgd. Overwriting the current pgd is bad when CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP is used
      to start a secondary kernel that dumps the memory of the previous kernel.
      The code introduces a new set of page tables. These tables are used to provide
      an executable identity mapping without overwriting the current pgd.

      [PATCH] Convert x86-64 to early param · 2c8c0e6b
      Andi Kleen authored
      Instead of hackish manual parsing
      Requires earlier i386 patchkit, but also fixes i386 early_printk again.
      I removed some obsolete really early parameters which didn't do anything useful.
      Also made a few parameters that needed it early (mostly oops printing setup)
      Also removed one panic check that wasn't visible without
      early console anyways (the early console is now initialized after that
      This cleans up a lot of code.
