2011-10-31tty: Add module.h to drivers/tty users who just expect it there.Paul Gortmaker1-0/+1
We are cleaning up the issue that means module.h is omnipresent. These tty users are the people who implictly are relying on that. Fix up the real users to call out the include that they really need. In the case of jsm_driver.c file, it had moduleparam.h but that isn't enough and it needs the full module.h Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>

For some reason I didn't notice the failure in my test builds, probably lacking caffeine or something... Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
2011-07-19powerpc/pseries: Fix hvterm_raw_get_chars to accept < 16 chars, fixing xmonAnton Blanchard1-21/+37
commit 4d2bb3f50036 (powerpc/pseries: Re-implement HVSI as part of hvc_vio) changed udbg_getc to be based on hvterm_raw_get_chars. Unfortunately hvterm_raw_get_chars returns -EAGAIN if you ask for anything less than 16 characters. As a result xmon no longer accepts input and prints a stream of junk to the screen. The recent change highlights a problem that xmon on pseries VIO has had all along, that it can drop input characters. The issue is the hypervisor call does not take a count argument and can return up to 16 characters. This patch adds a per vterm buffer that we copy input data into and give it out as requested.

2011-07-01powerpc/hvsi: Fix conflict with old HVSI driverBenjamin Herrenschmidt1-15/+15
A mix of think & mismerge on my side caused a problem where both the new hvsi_lib and the old hvsi driver gets compiled and try to define symbols with the same name. This fixes it by renaming the hvsi_lib exported symbols. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>

2011-06-29powerpc/pseries: Re-implement HVSI as part of hvc_vioBenjamin Herrenschmidt1-33/+692
On pseries machines, consoles are provided by the hypervisor using a low level get_chars/put_chars type interface. However, this is really just a transport to the service processor which implements them either as "raw" console (networked consoles, HMC, ...) or as "hvsi" serial ports. The later is a simple packet protocol on top of the raw character interface that is supposed to convey additional "serial port" style semantics. In practice however, all it does is provide a way to read the CD line and set/clear our DTR line, that's it. We currently implement the "raw" protocol as an hvc console backend (/dev/hvcN) and the "hvsi" protocol using a separate tty driver (/dev/hvsi0). However this is quite impractical. The arbitrary difference between the two type of devices has been a major source of user (and distro) confusion. Additionally, there's an additional mini -hvsi implementation in the pseries platform code for our low level debug console and early boot kernel messages, which means code duplication, though that low level variant is impractical as it's incapable of doing the initial protocol negociation to establish the link to the FSP. This essentially replaces the dedicated hvsi driver and the platform udbg code completely by extending the existing hvc_vio backend used in "raw" mode so that: - It now supports HVSI as well - We add support for hvc backend providing tiocm{get,set} - It also provides a udbg interface for early debug and boot console This is overall less code, though this will only be obvious once we remove the old "hvsi" driver, which is still available for now. When the old driver is enabled, the new code still kicks in for the low level udbg console, replacing the old mini implementation in the platform code, it just doesn't provide the higher level "hvc" interface. In addition to producing generally simler code, this has several benefits over our current situation: - The user/distro only has to deal with /dev/hvcN for the hypervisor console, avoiding all sort of confusion that has plagued us in the past - The tty, kernel and low level debug console all use the same code base which supports the full protocol establishment process, thus the console is now available much earlier than it used to be with the old HVSI driver. The kernel console works much earlier and udbg is available much earlier too. Hackers can enable a hard coded very-early debug console as well that works with HVSI (previously that was only supported for the "raw" mode). I've tried to keep the same semantics as hvsi relative to how I react to things like CD changes, with some subtle differences though: - I clear DTR on close if HUPCL is set - Current hvsi triggers a hangup if it detects a up->down transition on CD (you can still open a console with CD down). My new implementation triggers a hangup if the link to the FSP is severed, and severs it upon detecting a up->down transition on CD. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>

2011-01-13tty: move hvc drivers to drivers/tty/hvc/Greg Kroah-Hartman1-0/+173
As requested by Arnd Bergmann, the hvc drivers are now moved to the drivers/tty/hvc/ directory. The virtio_console.c driver was also moved, as it required the hvc_console.h file to be able to be built, and it really is a hvc driver.
