SubjectRe: [PATCH 8/8] x86/platform/uv: Account for UV Hubless in is_uvX_hub Ops
From
Date
Hi Christoph,

I can do these and leave some comments as markers to find the code to
remove later. The real problem is uv_mmrs.h is a generated file and the
scripts cannot be easily redone. Basically they copy in the verilog
definition files from the UV HUB design files and create kernel
compatible files that also then generate run-time checking of hardware
specifics like MMR addresses and field definitions. The change to
remove those "is supported defines" takes a higher level process that
cannot be done within this short release cycle. We are racing to
include this support in the next linux release for pending new hardware
introductions.

Also that script is in a state of flux for the next UV arch and
processor updates so changing anything at this moment is highly
disruptive. Is there a specific reason why this UV only code that does
not touch anything else in the kernel and only affects our productivity
and system performance appears to be such a problem with you? And why
now, at this moment, and after 10 years does it suddenly seem so
important? I'm all for clean up but not disruption.

Bottom line, I agree to all these changes and I promise to tend to them
in the next release cycle. But please let us get through this cycle
without this much chaos?

Thanks,
Mike
