powerpc: remove unused variable

modules: Fix module_bug_list list corruption race

With all the recent module loading cleanups, we've minimized the code
that sits under module_mutex, fixing various deadlocks and making it
possible to do most of the module loading in parallel.

However, that whole conversion totally missed the rather obscure code
that adds a new module to the list for BUG() handling. That code was
doubly obscure because (a) the code itself lives in lib/bugs.c (for
dubious reasons) and (b) it gets called from the architecture-specific
"module_finalize()" rather than from generic code.

Calling it from arch-specific code makes no sense what-so-ever to begin
with, and is now actively wrong since that code isn't protected by the
module loading lock any more.

So this commit moves the "module_bug_{finalize,cleanup}()" calls away
from the arch-specific code, and into the generic code - and in the
process protects it with the module_mutex so that the list operations
are now safe.

Future fixups:
- move the module list handling code into kernel/module.c where it
- get rid of 'module_bug_list' and just use the regular list of modules
(called 'modules' - imagine that) that we already create and maintain
for other reasons.

xen: do not initialize PV timers on HVM if !xen_have_vector_callback

if !xen_have_vector_callback do not initialize PV timer unconditionally
because we still don't know how many cpus are available and if there is
more than one we won't be able to receive the timer interrupts on
cpu > 0.

This patch fixes an hang at boot when Xen does not support vector
callbacks and the guest has multiple vcpus.

MIPS: Calculate VMLINUZ_LOAD_ADDRESS based on the length of vmlinux.bin

Fix VMLINUZ_LOAD_ADDRESS calculation to be based on the length of
vmlinux.bin, the actual uncompressed kernel binary.

Previously it was based on the length of KBUILD_IMAGE (the unstripped ELF
vmlinux), which is bigger than vmlinux.bin. As a result, vmlinuz was
loaded into a memory address higher then actually needed - a problem for
small memory platforms.

MIPS: N32: Fix getdents64 syscall for n32

Commit 31c984a5acabea5d8c7224dc226453022be46f33 introduced a new syscall
getdents64. However, in the syscall table, the new syscall still refers to
the old getdents which doesn't work.

The problem appeared with a system that uses the eglibc 2.12-r11187 (that
utilizes that new syscall) is very confused. The fix has been tested with
that eglibc version.

MN10300: Fix flush_icache_range()

flush_icache_range() is given virtual addresses to describe the region. It
deals with these by attempting to translate them through the current set of
page tables.

This is fine for userspace memory and vmalloc()'d areas as they are governed by
page tables. However, since the regions above 0x80000000 aren't translated
through the page tables by the MMU, the kernel doesn't bother to set up page
tables for them (see paging_init()).

This means flush_icache_range() as it stands cannot be used to flush regions of
the VM area between 0x80000000 and 0x9fffffff where the kernel resides if the
data cache is operating in WriteBack mode.

To fix this, make flush_icache_range() first check for addresses in the upper
half of VM space and deal with them appropriately, before dealing with any
range in the page table mapped area.

Ordinarily, this is not a problem, but it has the capacity to make kprobes and
kgdb malfunction. It should not affect gdbstub, signal frame setup or module
loading as gdb has its own flush functions, and the others take place in the
page table mapped area only.
