      Drivers: scsi: remove __dev* attributes. · 6f039790
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option.  As a result, the __dev*
      markings need to be removed.
      This change removes the use of __devinit, __devexit_p, __devinitdata,
      __devinitconst, and __devexit from these drivers.
      Based on patches originally written by Bill Pemberton, but redone by me
      in order to handle some of the coding style issues better, by hand.

      platform-drivers: move probe to .devinit.text in drivers/scsi · 1b07193b
      Uwe Kleine-König authored
      A pointer to a probe callback is passed to the core via
      platform_driver_register and so the function must not disappear when the
      .init sections are discarded.  Otherwise (if also having HOTPLUG=y)
      unbinding and binding a device to the driver via sysfs will result in an
      oops as does a device being registered late.
      An alternative to this patch is using platform_driver_probe instead of
      platform_driver_register plus removing the pointer to the probe function
      from the struct platform_driver.

      [SCSI] sgiwd93: interfacing to wd33c93 · 8f3334ed
      peter fuerst authored
      1) sgiwd93 used to switch off asynchronous mode on the wd33c93, discarding
         any "nosync"-requests from the commandline.
         But we need to allow "nosync"-requests for selected devices, for example
         the Pioneer DVD305S.
         (For the curious: this device accepts the SDTR from wd33c93 and success-
         fully sends inquiry data in sync mode, but after the data phase in the
         inquiry command does an unexpected disconnect, seemingly sending no
         "status" or "command complete". Forcing async transfers makes it work
         together flawlessly with the wd33c93. Of course, preferable would be, to
         implement wd33c93's "resume command" stuff, but that probably will not
         come soon.)
      2) Maximize benefit from the preceding Fast SCSI patch for wd33c93 by passing
         the higher input-clock frequency explicitely. To be applied after the
         mentioned wd33c93 patch.

      IRQ: Maintain regs pointer globally rather than passing to IRQ handlers · 7d12e780
      David Howells authored
      Maintain a per-CPU global "struct pt_regs *" variable which can be used instead
      of passing regs around manually through all ~1800 interrupt handlers in the
      Linux kernel.
      The regs pointer is used in few places, but it potentially costs both stack
      space and code to pass it around.  On the FRV arch, removing the regs parameter
      from all the genirq function results in a 20% speed up of the IRQ exit path
      (ie: from leaving timer_interrupt() to leaving do_IRQ()).
      Where appropriate, an arch may override the generic storage facility and do
      something different with the variable.  On FRV, for instance, the address is
      maintained in GR28 at all times inside the kernel as part of general exception
      Having looked over the code, it appears that the parameter may be handed down
      through up to twenty or so layers of functions.  Consider a USB character
      device attached to a USB hub, attached to a USB controller that posts its
      interrupts through a cascaded auxiliary interrupt controller.  A character
      device driver may want to pass regs to the sysrq handler through the input
      layer which adds another few layers of parameter passing.
      I've build this code with allyesconfig for x86_64 and i386.  I've runtested the
      main part of the code on FRV and i386, though I can't test most of the drivers.
      I've also done partial conversion for powerpc and MIPS - these at least compile
      with minimal configurations.
      This will affect all archs.  Mostly the changes should be relatively easy.
      Take do_IRQ(), store the regs pointer at the beginning, saving the old one:
      	struct pt_regs *old_regs = set_irq_regs(regs);
      And put the old one back at the end:
      Don't pass regs through to generic_handle_irq() or __do_IRQ().
      In timer_interrupt(), this sort of change will be necessary:
      	-	update_process_times(user_mode(regs));
      	-	profile_tick(CPU_PROFILING, regs);
      	+	update_process_times(user_mode(get_irq_regs()));
      	+	profile_tick(CPU_PROFILING);
      I'd like to move update_process_times()'s use of get_irq_regs() into itself,
      except that i386, alone of the archs, uses something other than user_mode().
      Some notes on the interrupt handling in the drivers:
       (*) input_dev() is now gone entirely.  The regs pointer is no longer stored in
           the input_dev struct.
       (*) finish_unlinks() in drivers/usb/host/ohci-q.c needs checking.  It does
           something different depending on whether it's been supplied with a regs
           pointer or not.
       (*) Various IRQ handler function pointers have been moved to type

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
