The new preemtible kmap_local() implementation:
- Consolidate all kmap_atomic() internals into a generic implementation
which builds the base for the kmap_local() API and make the
kmap_atomic() interface wrappers which handle the disabling/enabling of
preemption and pagefaults.
- Switch the storage from per-CPU to per task and provide scheduler
support for clearing mapping when scheduling out and restoring them
when scheduling back in.
- Merge the migrate_disable/enable() code, which is also part of the
scheduler pull request. This was required to make the kmap_local()
interface available which does not disable preemption when a mapping
is established. It has to disable migration instead to guarantee that
the virtual address of the mapped slot is the same accross preemption.
- Provide better debug facilities: guard pages and enforced utilization
of the mapping mechanics on 64bit systems when the architecture allows
- Provide the new kmap_local() API which can now be used to cleanup the
kmap_atomic() usage sites all over the place. Most of the usage sites
do not require the implicit disabling of preemption and pagefaults so
the penalty on 64bit and 32bit non-highmem systems is removed and quite
some of the code can be simplified. A wholesale conversion is not
possible because some usage depends on the implicit side effects and
some need to be cleaned up because they work around these side effects.
The migrate disable side effect is only effective on highmem systems
and when enforced debugging is enabled. On 64bit and 32bit non-highmem
systems the overhead is completely avoided.
ARM: highmem: Fix cache_is_vivt() reference
The reference to cache_is_vivt() was moved into a header file,
which now causes a build failure in rare randconfig builds:
arch/arm/include/asm/highmem.h:52:43: error: implicit declaration of function 'cache_is_vivt' [-Werror,-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
Add an explicit include to make it build reliably.
