Subject[GIT PULL] libnvdimm fixes for 4.2-rc2
Date
Hi Linus, please pull from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/djbw/nvdimm libnvdimm-fixes

...to receive:

1/ Fixes for a handful of smatch reports (Thanks Dan C.!) and minor
bug fixes (patches 1-6)

2/ Correctness fixes to the BLK-mode nvdimm driver (patches 7-10).
Granted these are slightly large for a -rc update. They have been
out for review in one form or another since the end of May and were
deferred from the merge window while we settled on the "PMEM API" for
the PMEM-mode nvdimm driver (i.e. memremap_pmem, memcpy_to_pmem, and
wmb_pmem). Now that those apis are merged we implement them in the
BLK driver to guarantee that mmio aperture moves stay ordered with
respect to incoming read/write requests, and that writes are flushed
through those mmio-windows and platform-buffers to be persistent on
media.

These pass the sub-system unit tests with the updates to
tools/testing/nvdimm, and have received a successful build-report from
the kbuild robot (468 configs). Full git log below with acks from
Rafael for the touches to drivers/acpi/.

[PATCH 01/10] sparse: fix misplaced __pmem definition
[PATCH 02/10] libnvdimm: smatch cleanups in __nd_ioctl
[PATCH 03/10] nvdimm: Fix return value of nvdimm_bus_init() if class_create() fails
[PATCH 04/10] nfit: fix smatch "use after null check" report
[PATCH 05/10] pmem: add maintainer for include/linux/pmem.h
[PATCH 06/10] tools/testing/nvdimm: mock ioremap_wt
[PATCH 07/10] tools/testing/nvdimm: fix return code for unimplemented commands
[PATCH 08/10] tools/testing/nvdimm: add mock acpi_nfit_flush_address entries to nfit_test
[PATCH 09/10] nfit: update block I/O path to use PMEM API
[PATCH 10/10] nfit: add support for NVDIMM "latch" flag

sparse: fix misplaced __pmem definition

Move the definition of __pmem outside of CONFIG_SPARSE_RCU_POINTER to fix:

drivers/nvdimm/pmem.c:198:17: sparse: too many arguments for function __builtin_expect
drivers/nvdimm/pmem.c:36:33: sparse: expected ; at end of declaration
drivers/nvdimm/pmem.c:48:21: sparse: void declaration

...due to __pmem failing to be defined in some configurations when
CONFIG_SPARSE_RCU_POINTER=y.

libnvdimm: smatch cleanups in __nd_ioctl

Drop use of access_ok() since we are already using copy_{to|from}_user()
which do their own access_ok().

tools/testing/nvdimm: mock ioremap_wt

In the 4.2-rc1 merge the default_memremap_pmem() implementation switched
from ioremap_nocache() to ioremap_wt(). Add it to the list of mocked
routines to restore the ability to run the unit tests.

tools/testing/nvdimm: fix return code for unimplemented commands

The implementation for the new "DIMM Flags" DSM relies on the -ENOTTY
return code to indicate that the flags are unimplimented and to fall
back to a safe default. As is the -ENXIO error code erroneoously
indicates to fail enabling a BLK region.

tools/testing/nvdimm: add mock acpi_nfit_flush_address entries to nfit_test

In preparation for fixing the BLK path to properly use "directed
pcommit" enable the unit test infrastructure to emit mock "flush"
tables. Writes to these flush addresses trigger a memory controller to
flush its internal buffers to persistent media, similar to the x86
"pcommit" instruction.

nfit: update block I/O path to use PMEM API

Update the nfit block I/O path to use the new PMEM API and to adhere to
the read/write flows outlined in the "NVDIMM Block Window Driver
Writer's Guide":

http://pmem.io/documents/NVDIMM_Driver_Writers_Guide.pdf

This includes adding support for targeted NVDIMM flushes called "flush
hints" in the ACPI 6.0 specification:

http://www.uefi.org/sites/default/files/resources/ACPI_6.0.pdf

For performance and media durability the mapping for a BLK aperture is
moved to a write-combining mapping which is consistent with
memcpy_to_pmem() and wmb_blk().

nfit: add support for NVDIMM "latch" flag

Add support in the NFIT BLK I/O path for the "latch" flag
defined in the "Get Block NVDIMM Flags" _DSM function:

http://pmem.io/documents/NVDIMM_DSM_Interface_Example.pdf

This flag requires the driver to read back the command register after it
is written in the block I/O path. This ensures that the hardware has
fully processed the new command and moved the aperture appropriately.
