From: Nicolas Pitre <nicolas.pitre <at> linaro.org>
Subject: [PATCH v2 00/16] low-level CPU and cluster power management
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel
Date: Thursday 24th January 2013 06:27:43 UTC (over 4 years ago)
This is version 2 of the patch series required to safely power up
and down CPUs in a cluster as can be found in b.L systems.

Please refer to http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel/208625
for the initial series and particularly the cover page blurb for this work.

Thanks to those who provided review comments.

Changes from v1:

- Pulled in Rob Herring's auxcr accessor patch and converted this series
  to it.
- VMajor rework of various barriers (some DSBs demoted to DMBs, etc.)
- The sync_mem() macro is now split and enhanced to properly process the
  cache for writers and readers in the cluster critical region helpers.
- BL_NR_CLUSTERS and BL_CPUS_PER_CLUSTER renamed to BL_MAX_CLUSTERS
  and BL_MAX_CPUS_PER_CLUSTER.
- Removed unused C definitions and prototypes for vlocks.
- Simplified the vlock memory allocation.
- The vlock code is GPL v2.
- Replaced MPIDR inline asm by read_cpuid_mpidr().
- Use of MPIDR_AFFINITY_LEVEL() to replace explicit shifts and masks.
- Dropped gic_cpu_if_down().
- Added a DSB before SEV and WFI.
- Fixed power_up_setup helper prototype.
- Nuked smp_wmb() in bL_set_entry_vector().
- Moved the CCI driver to drivers/bus/.
- Dependency on CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL removed.
- Leftover garbage in Makefile removed.
- Added/clarified various comments in the assembly code.
- Some documentation typos fixed.
- Copyright notices updated to 2013

Still not addressed yet in this series:

- The bL_ rename (will be trivial once I settle on an alternative).
- The CCI and DCSCB device tree binding descriptions.

The new diffstat is:
