2005-08-29[LIB]: Make TEXTSEARCH_BM plain tristate like the othersDavid S. Miller-8/+1
And select it when the relevant modules are enabled. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2005-08-29[LIB]: Boyer-Moore extension for textsearch infrastructure strike #2Pablo Neira Ayuso-0/+10
Attached the implementation of the Boyer-Moore string search algorithm for the new textsearch infrastructure. I've added as well a note about the limitations that this approach presents, as Thomas has remarked. Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2005-06-24[PKT_SCHED]: Make TEXTSEARCH* options only selected.David S. Miller-22/+6
Do not present these confusing new options to the user unless he picked some facility that makes use of it, such as NET_EMATCH_TEXT. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2005-06-23[LIB]: Naive finite state machine based textsearchThomas Graf-0/+11
A finite state machine consists of n states (struct ts_fsm_token) representing the pattern as a finite automation. The data is read sequentially on a octet basis. Every state token specifies the number of recurrences and the type of value accepted which can be either a specific character or ctype based set of characters. The available type of recurrences include 1, (0|1), [0 n], and [1 n]. The algorithm differs between strict/non-strict mode specyfing whether the pattern has to start at the first octect. Strict mode is enabled by default and can be disabled by inserting TS_FSM_HEAD_IGNORE as the first token in the chain. The runtime performance of the algorithm should be around O(n), however while in strict mode the average runtime can be better. Signed-off-by: Thomas Graf <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2005-06-23[LIB]: Knuth-Morris-Pratt textsearch algorithmThomas Graf-0/+10
Implements a linear-time string-matching algorithm due to Knuth, Morris, and Pratt [1]. Their algorithm avoids the explicit computation of the transition function DELTA altogether. Its matching time is O(n), for n being length(text), using just an auxiliary function PI[1..m], for m being length(pattern), precomputed from the pattern in time O(m). The array PI allows the transition function DELTA to be computed efficiently "on the fly" as needed. Roughly speaking, for any state "q" = 0,1,...,m and any character "a" in SIGMA, the value PI["q"] contains the information that is independent of "a" and is needed to compute DELTA("q", "a") [2]. Since the array PI has only m entries, whereas DELTA has O(m|SIGMA|) entries, we save a factor of |SIGMA| in the preprocessing time by computing PI rather than DELTA.

2005-06-23[LIB]: Textsearch infrastructure.Thomas Graf-1/+7
The textsearch infrastructure provides text searching facitilies for both linear and non-linear data. Individual search algorithms are implemented in modules and chosen by the user. Signed-off-by: Thomas Graf <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
2005-06-21[PATCH] ia64 uncached allocJes Sorensen-0/+6
This patch contains the ia64 uncached page allocator and the generic allocator (genalloc). The uncached allocator was formerly part of the SN2 mspec driver but there are several other users of it so it has been split off from the driver. The generic allocator can be used by device driver to manage special memory etc. The generic allocator is based on the allocator from the sym53c8xx_2 driver. Various users on ia64 needs uncached memory. The SGI SN architecture requires it for inter-partition communication between partitions within a large NUMA cluster. The specific user for this is the XPC code. Another application is large MPI style applications which use it for synchronization, on SN this can be done using special 'fetchop' operations but it also benefits non SN hardware which may use regular uncached memory for this purpose. Performance of doing this through uncached vs cached memory is pretty substantial. This is handled by the mspec driver which I will push out in a seperate patch. Rather than creating a specific allocator for just uncached memory I came up with genalloc which is a generic purpose allocator that can be used by device drivers and other subsystems as they please. For instance to handle onboard device memory. It was derived from the sym53c7xx_2 driver's allocator which is also an example of a potential user (I am refraining from modifying sym2 right now as it seems to have been under fairly heavy development recently). On ia64 memory has various properties within a granule, ie. it isn't safe to access memory as uncached within the same granule as currently has memory accessed in cached mode. The regular system therefore doesn't utilize memory in the lower granules which is mixed in with device PAL code etc. The uncached driver walks the EFI memmap and pulls out the spill uncached pages and sticks them into the uncached pool. Only after these chunks have been utilized, will it start converting regular cached memory into uncached memory. Hence the reason for the EFI related code additions.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds-0/+61
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!
