2016-10-24docs-rst: add documents to development-processMauro Carvalho Chehab-164/+0
Add several documents to the development-process ReST book. As we don't want renames, use symlinks instead, keeping those documents on their original place. Acked-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <> Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <>

2015-05-13Documentation/magic-number: Remove SCC_MAGICGeert Uytterhoeven-1/+0
The SCC_MAGIC define was removed in commit 1ec3ba93c5fad9dc ("Staging: remove drivers/char/scc.h as it should have gone a while ago"), while its actual last user was removed before in commit bb2a97e9ccd525dd ("Staging: delete generic_serial drivers").

2015-05-13Documentation/magic-number: Remove SCI_MAGICGeert Uytterhoeven-1/+0
The SCI_MAGIC define was removed in commit f8e53553f452dcbf ("serial: sh-sci: Kill off more unused defines."). Its last user was the old drivers/char sh-sci driver, which was removed in 2004. Signed-off-by: Geert Uytterhoeven <> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <>
2014-04-16Documentation/serial: Delete obsolete driver documentationJean Delvare-12/+0
These serial drivers were removed in kernel v3.1, so we can drop their documentation files and references to their magic numbers and parameters. There are still references to these old drivers in Documentation/devices.txt but I'm afraid they can't be removed.

2013-01-31wanrouter: completely decouple obsolete code from kernel.Paul Gortmaker-1/+1
The original suggestion to delete wanrouter started earlier with the mainline commit f0d1b3c2bcc5de8a17af5f2274f7fcde8292b5fc ("net/wanrouter: Deprecate and schedule for removal") in May 2012. More importantly, Dan Carpenter found[1] that the driver had a fundamental breakage introduced back in 2008, with commit 7be6065b39c3 ("netdevice wanrouter: Convert directly reference of netdev->priv"). So we know with certainty that the code hasn't been used by anyone willing to at least take the effort to send an e-mail report of breakage for at least 4 years. This commit does a decouple of the wanrouter subsystem, by going after the Makefile/Kconfig and similar files, so that these mainline files that we are keeping do not have the big wanrouter file/driver deletion commit tied into their history. Once this commit is in place, we then can remove the obsolete cyclomx drivers and similar that have a dependency on CONFIG_WAN_ROUTER_DRIVERS.

2012-01-30drivers/net: fix up stale paths from driver reorgPaul Gortmaker-1/+1
The reorganization of the driver layout in drivers/net left behind some stale paths in comments and in Kconfig help text. Bring them up to date. No actual change to any code takes place here. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <> CC: Jeff Kirsher <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>

2007-02-26[SPARC]: Remove the broken SUN_AURORA driver.Adrian Bunk-1/+0
The SUN_AURORA driver: - has been marked as BROKEN for more than two years and - is still marked as BROKEN. Drivers that had been marked as BROKEN for such a long time seem to be unlikely to be revived in the forseeable future. But if anyone wants to ever revive this driver, the code is still present in the older kernel releases. Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2005-11-07[PATCH] mm: rename kmem_cache_s to kmem_cachePekka J Enberg-1/+1
This patch renames struct kmem_cache_s to kmem_cache so we can start using it instead of kmem_cache_t typedef. Signed-off-by: Pekka Enberg <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds-0/+174
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
