Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.5.32

Aug 27, 2002, 20:02 (5 Talkback[s])

Kernel.org Mirrors

Full Changelog

Delayed by various issues (including a HT-only MTRR bug that Ingo finally
chased down and that kept me chasing shadows for days). As a result, this 
is fairly big..

Most noticeable is the (already discussed) IDE revert, and the threading
updates. The input layer switch-over may also end up being a bit painful
for a while, since that not only adds a lot of config options that you
have to get right to have a working keyboard and mouse (we'll fix that
usability nightmare), but the drivers themselves are different and there
are likely devices out there that depended on various quirks.

The AIO core code from Ben got merged, and Al worked on cleaning up the 
gendisk stuff from a number of drivers that were missed last time. And the 
usual USB updates..

Oh, and various architecture updates (sparc64, ppc64, ia-64).

                Linus

  o C99 designated initializers for fs/ncpfs
  o Support secondary head DDC on G450/G550
  o Make secondary output support mandatory for Matrox G450/G550
  o Remove structure holding state of secondary output in the matroxfb
    driver
  o matroxfb: Find appropriate setting for specified color depth by
    looking through table instead of using if-else branches in code.
    Source is cleaner, and generated code is smaller with this change.
    By Denis Zaitsev <zzz@cd-club.ru>
  o Simplify rules for writting secondary output drivers to matroxfb
  o Use arrays for holding Matrox output drivers, it is nicer and more
    extensible than current solution with per-CRTC bitmaps.
  o Store pointer to matroxfb specific fb information instead of
    universal fb_info* pointer for secondary head. Saves some
    typecasts.
  o Use container_of instead of simple typecast when we convert
    pointers from pointer to fb_info to pointers to matrox_fb_info.
  o Initialize Matrox G100 and G400 hardware with values read from BIOS
    instead of with failsafe settings discovered in the past.
  o matroxfb DVI updates
  o Add TV-Out support for Matrox G450/G550. Due to the hardware only
    secondary CRTC can be used as a source for TV output.
  o Make debug printouts in matroxfb G400 TV-out disabled by default
  o Remove currcon field from private fb_info in matroxfb. It was moved
    to the generic layer long ago.
  o Use sizeof(*var) instead of sizeof(struct xxx) in matroxfb
  o Return ENOTTY instead of EINVAL for unknown ioctl ops in matroxfb
  o Add support for MGA-TVO-B into matroxfb. By Mike Pieper
  o matroxfb: Do not store results of bitwise AND directly in variables
    which are treated as a booleans. Comparsion does not work correctly
    on them. 
  o Set system PLL vcomax correctly in matroxfb. Discovered by Dirk
    Uffmann
  o Update matroxfb to the current fbdev API
  o Unicode characters 0x80-0x9F are valid ISO* characters
  o broken cfb* support in the 2.5.31-bk
  o es1371 synchronize_irq
  o oops from console subsystem: dereferencing wild pointer
  o More display -> fb_info fixes for new fbdev

Vojtech Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz>:
  o Fix i8042.c to ignore fake key releases generated by AT keyboard in
    translated set 2. This fixes a problem where shift-pgup, with the
    pgup released first generated an unknown scancode warning and the
    shift remained stuck.
  o This is the last and most important step in the input core
    conversion
  o This (re)implements getkeycode/setkeycode, kbd_rate and kd_mksound
    as functions interfacing to the input core. PC-Speaker handling is
    moved to a separate file. Uinput is moved to a input/misc
    directory.
  o Shorten the keycode handling code in keyboard.c and evdev.c
  o Fix bits that have fallen out when merging input-based keyboard.c
    into 2.5 - kbd0 init, sysrq support, show_regs, show_mem,
    show_state support, correct handling of shifts across vt switches,
    console blanking, console callback. Hope that's all.
  o Always build input.o in - avoid build problems with keyboard.c
  o Add mouse model reporting into psmouse.c
  o Fix a dangling 'else' after removing ps/2 keyboard support
  o Workaround to make iforce-usb.c compile with Pat Mochel's input to
    standard lists conversion.
  o Minor endianness and debugging fixes. Most thanks to Dave Miller
