Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.8-rc1

Jul 12, 2004, 01:00 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)

Kernel.org Mirrors

Full Changelog

Ok, there's been a long time between "public" releases, although the automated BK snapshots have obviously been keeping people up-to-date. Sorry about that, I blame mainly moving boxes and stuff around...

The diff is big, and skewed by some QLogic SCSI controller firmware updates along with a few new (and some moved) drivers. Most of the rest is a large collection of fairly small patches. The shortlog gives a reasonable overview.

Linus

Aneesh Kumar:

  • alpha: print the symbol name in Oops

Anton Altaparmakov:

  • NTFS: - Add new element itype.index.collation/_rule to the ntfs inode structure and set it appropriately in ntfs_read_locked_inode().
  • NTFS: Ensure that there is no overflow when doing page->index << PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT by casting page->index to s64 in fs/ntfs/aops.c.
  • NTFS: Use atomic kmap instead of kmap() in fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_read{page,_block}()
  • NTFS: Use case sensitive attribute lookups instead of case insensitive ones
  • NTFS: Lock all page cache pages belonging to mst protected attributes while accessing them to ensure we never see corrupt data while the page is under writeout.
  • NTFS: Add framework for generic ntfs collation (fs/ntfs/collation.[hc])
  • NTFS: Add a new type, ntfs_index_context, to allow retrieval of an index entry using the corresponding index key. To get an index context, use ntfs_index_ctx_get() and to release it, use ntfs_index_ctx_put().
  • NTFS: Load the quota file ($Quota) and check if quota tracking is enabled and if so, mark the quotas out of date. This causes windows to rescan the volume on boot and update all quota entries.
  • NTFS: Forgot the set_page_writeback()/end_page_writeback() in the mst protected writepage case.
  • Remove NOOP code from fs/buffer.c::drop_buffers()
  • NTFS: Add a set_page_dirty address space operation for ntfs_m[fs]t_aops
  • NTFS: Add fs/ntfs/index.c::__ntfs_index_entry_mark_dirty() which sets all buffers that are inside the ntfs record in the page dirty after which it sets the page dirty. This allows ->writepage to only write the dirty index records rather than having to write all the records in the page. Modify fs/ntfs/index.h::ntfs_index_entry_mark_dirty() to use this rather than __set_page_dirty_nobuffers().
  • NTFS: Update __ntfs_index_entry_mark_dirty() so it makes sure that the page has buffers. Otherwise we could end up with a dirty page without buffers and our set_page_dirty() would not mark the buffers dirty when they are created and thus they would not be written out and the dirty records would be lost.
  • NTFS: 2.1.15 - Implement fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_write_mst_block() which enables the writing of page cache pages belonging to mst protected attributes like the index allocation attribute in directory indices and other indices like $Quota/$Q, etc. This means that the quota is now marked out of date on all volumes rather than only on ones where the quota defaults entry is in the index root attribute of the $Quota/$Q index.
