      profiling: Remove unused timer hook · ba6fdda4
      Frederic Weisbecker authored
      The last remaining user was oprofile and its use has been
      removed a while ago in commit bc078e4e
      ("oprofile: convert oprofile from timer_hook to hrtimer").
      
      There doesn't seem to be any upstream user of this hook
      for about two years now. And I'm not even aware of any out of
      tree user.
      
      Let's remove it.

      kernel: Map most files to use export.h instead of module.h · 9984de1a
      Paul Gortmaker authored
      The changed files were only including linux/module.h for the
      EXPORT_SYMBOL infrastructure, and nothing else.  Revector them
      onto the isolated export header for faster compile times.
      
      Nothing to see here but a whole lot of instances of:
      
        -#include <linux/module.h>
        +#include <linux/export.h>
      
      This commit is only changing the kernel dir; next targets
      will probably be mm, fs, the arch dirs, etc.

      llseek: automatically add .llseek fop · 6038f373
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      All file_operations should get a .llseek operation so we can make
      nonseekable_open the default for future file operations without a
      .llseek pointer.
      
      The three cases that we can automatically detect are no_llseek, seq_lseek
      and default_llseek. For cases where we can we can automatically prove that
      the file offset is always ignored, we use noop_llseek, which maintains
      the current behavior of not returning an error from a seek.
      
      New drivers should normally not use noop_llseek but instead use no_llseek
      and call nonseekable_open at open time.  Existing drivers can be converted
      to do the same when the maintainer knows for certain that no user code
      relies on calling seek on the device file.
      
      The generated code is often incorrectly indented and right now contains
      comments that clarify for each added line why a specific variant was
      chosen. In the version that gets submitted upstream, the comments will
      be gone and I will manually fix the indentation, because there does not
      seem to be a way to do that using coccinelle.
      
      Some amount of new code is currently sitting in linux-next that should get
      the same modifications, which I will do at the end of the merge window.
      
      Many thanks to Julia Lawall for helping me learn to write a semantic
      patch that does all this.

      cpumask: convert kernel/profile.c · c309b917
      Rusty Russell authored
      Impact: Reduce kernel memory usage, use new cpumask API.
      
      Avoid a static cpumask_t for prof_cpu_mask, and an on-stack cpumask_t
      in prof_cpu_mask_write_proc.  Both become cpumask_var_t.
      
      prof_cpu_mask is only allocated when profiling is on, but the NULL
      checks are optimized out by gcc for the !CPUMASK_OFFSTACK case.
      
      Also removed some strange and unnecessary casts.

      cpumask: change cpumask_scnprintf, cpumask_parse_user, cpulist_parse, and cpulist_scnprintf to take pointers.
      
      Impact: change calling convention of existing cpumask APIs
      
      Most cpumask functions started with cpus_: these have been replaced by
      cpumask_ ones which take struct cpumask pointers as expected.
      
      These four functions don't have good replacement names; fortunately
      they're rarely used, so we just change them over.

      kernel/profile.c: fix section mismatch warning · e270219f
      Rakib Mullick authored
      Impact: fix section mismatch warning in kernel/profile.c
      
      Here, profile_nop function has been called from a non-init function
      create_hash_tables(void). Which generetes a section mismatch warning.
      Previously, create_hash_tables(void) was a init function. So, removing
      __init from create_hash_tables(void) requires profile_nop to be
      non-init.
      
      This patch makes profile_nop function inline and fixes the
      following warning:
      
       WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x6ebb6): Section mismatch in reference from
       the function create_hash_tables() to the function
       .init.text:profile_nop()
       The function create_hash_tables() references
       the function __init profile_nop().
       This is often because create_hash_tables lacks a __init
       annotation or the annotation of profile_nop is wrong.

      build kernel/profile.o only when requested · b03f6489
      Adrian Bunk authored
      Build kernel/profile.o only if CONFIG_PROFILING is enabled.
      
      This makes CONFIG_PROFILING=n kernels smaller.
      
      As a bonus, some profile_tick() calls and one branch from schedule() are
      now eliminated with CONFIG_PROFILING=n (but I doubt these are
      measurable effects).
      
      This patch changes the effects of CONFIG_PROFILING=n, but I don't think
      having more than two choices would be the better choice.
      
      This patch also adds the name of the first parameter to the prototypes
      of profile_{hits,tick}() since I anyway had to add them for the dummy
      functions.

      fix compilation with gcc 4.2 · cd5bfea2
      Peter Chubb authored
      gcc-4.2 is a lot more picky about its symbol handling.  EXPORT_SYMBOL no
      longer works on symbols that are undefined or defined with static scope.
      
      For example, with CONFIG_PROFILE off, I see:
      
        kernel/profile.c:206: error: __ksymtab_profile_event_unregister causes a section type conflict
        kernel/profile.c:205: error: __ksymtab_profile_event_register causes a section type conflict
      
      This patch moves the EXPORTs inside the #ifdef CONFIG_PROFILE, so we
      only try to export symbols that are defined.
      
      Also, in kernel/kprobes.c there's an EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() for
      jprobes_return, which if CONFIG_JPROBES is undefined is a static
      inline and gives the same error.
      
      And in drivers/acpi/resources/rsxface.c, there's an
      ACPI_EXPORT_SYMBOPL() for a static symbol. If it's static, it's not
      accessible from outside the compilation unit, so should bot be exported.
      
      These three changes allow building a zx1_defconfig kernel with gcc 4.2
      on IA64.

      Detach sched.h from mm.h · e8edc6e0
      Alexey Dobriyan authored
      First thing mm.h does is including sched.h solely for can_do_mlock() inline
      function which has "current" dereference inside. By dealing with can_do_mlock()
      mm.h can be detached from sched.h which is good. See below, why.
      
      This patch
      a) removes unconditional inclusion of sched.h from mm.h
      b) makes can_do_mlock() normal function in mm/mlock.c
      c) exports can_do_mlock() to not break compilation
      d) adds sched.h inclusions back to files that were getting it indirectly.
      e) adds less bloated headers to some files (asm/signal.h, jiffies.h) that were
         getting them indirectly
      
      Net result is:
      a) mm.h users would get less code to open, read, preprocess, parse, ... if
         they don't need sched.h
      b) sched.h stops being dependency for significant number of files:
         on x86_64 allmodconfig touching sched.h results in recompile of 4083 files,
         after patch it's only 3744 (-8.3%).
      
      Cross-compile tested on
      
      	all arm defconfigs, all mips defconfigs, all powerpc defconfigs,
      	alpha alpha-up
      	arm
      	i386 i386-up i386-defconfig i386-allnoconfig
      	ia64 ia64-up
      	m68k
      	mips
      	parisc parisc-up
      	powerpc powerpc-up
      	s390 s390-up
      	sparc sparc-up
      	sparc64 sparc64-up
      	um-x86_64
      	x86_64 x86_64-up x86_64-defconfig x86_64-allnoconfig
      
      as well as my two usual configs.

      Add suspend-related notifications for CPU hotplug · 8bb78442
      Rafael J. Wysocki authored
      Since nonboot CPUs are now disabled after tasks and devices have been
      frozen and the CPU hotplug infrastructure is used for this purpose, we need
      special CPU hotplug notifications that will help the CPU-hotplug-aware
      subsystems distinguish normal CPU hotplug events from CPU hotplug events
      related to a system-wide suspend or resume operation in progress.  This
      patch introduces such notifications and causes them to be used during
      suspend and resume transitions.  It also changes all of the
      CPU-hotplug-aware subsystems to take these notifications into consideration
      (for now they are handled in the same way as the corresponding "normal"
      ones).

      [PATCH] KVM: add VM-exit profiling · 07031e14
      Ingo Molnar authored
      This adds the profile=kvm boot option, which enables KVM to profile VM
      exits.
      
      Use: "readprofile -m ./System.map | sort -n" to see the resulting
      output:
