This is a complete reimplementation of the new kfifo API, which is now 
really generic, type save and type definable. 

The API is still stable, no code which use the current  kfifo API must 
be modified!

Here are the results of the text section usage:

Example 1:
			kfifo_put/_get	kfifo_in/out	current kfifo
dynamic allocated	0x000002a8	0x00000291	0x00000299
in place		0x00000291	0x0000026e	0x00000273

kfifo.c			new		old
text section size	0x00000be5	0x000008b2

As you can see, kfifo_put/kfifo_get creates a little bit more code than 
kfifo_in/kfifo_out, but it is much faster (the code is inline).

The code is complete hand crafted and optimized. The text section size is as 
small as possible. You get all the fifo handling in only 3 kb. This includes 
type safe fix size records, dynamic records and DMA handling.

This should be the final version. All requested features are implemented.

ChangeLog:

27.01.2010 renamed kfifo_sizeof into kfifo_esize
           code refactoring: shrink foot print 
           fix bugs
           changed all 0 pointer into NULL
           fix a miss use in drivers/char/nozomi.c
           enhanced DMA functions to handle a non continues fifo buffer (e.g. vmalloc)
           reintroduced record dynamic handling as requested (tried to implemented it 
           separately, but this will double the code)
           Sync with kernel 2.6.33-rc5           
16.01.2010 Kicked away dynamic record handling. If anybody want it please let me know.
           Add a esize field which represents the size of the element stored in
           the fifo. This will increase the size of the fifo stucture by 4 bytes 
           but obtain a smaller code.
           Generalized the kfifo.c funtions to handle byte and all other element 
           sizes in common functions.
           Shrink the code size of kfifo.c from 2k to 1k
           Code cleanup
15.01.2010 fix kfifo_dma_*() bugs
           add a DMA usage exmaple
           fix kfifo_free()
           prevent creation of fifo with less then 2 entries
           prevent a real in place fifo manipulation with kfifo_alloc(), 
           kfifo_init() or kfifo_free()
           make INIT_KFIFO save with a dynamic allocated fifo
14.01.2010 Change the size field of the fifo structure into a mask field, which
           is size - 1. This will save some instructions 
           Make the basic structure mode generic. Add a data pointer and mask
           field, also for real in place fifo, because the extra function parameter
           passing of the data pointer and and the fifo size was to costly
           Change all internal functions to work with the generic base structure
           Optimized the kfifo_put and kfifo_get macros to prevent an indirection
           Code cleanup
           Bug fixes in kfifo_dma_* macros
           Update examples
           Sync with kernel 2.6.33-rc4
06.01.2010 Add a note about locking: clarify when locking is needed
           Fix byte stream example
           Remove unnecessary typedefs
           Make checkpatch.pl clean: one error left, but there is no way to
           solve this...
28.12.2009 Sanitize kfifo_*_user() error handling (suggested by Andi Kleen)
           kfifo_from_user() and kfifo_to_user() will now return an error
           code and the number of copied bytes will be stored in a variable
           passed as pointer
           Make patch readable
           Update examples
           Fix a typo
27.12.2009 Sync with kernel 2.6.33-rc2
           Introduce new kfifo_initialized macro (suggested by Andi Kleen)
           Renamed kfifo_peek into kfifo_peek_len
           Introduce new kfifo_peek macro (suggest by Andi Kleen)
           Introduce new kfifo_out_peek macro (suggested by Andi Kleen)
           Fix broken kernel-doc notation
           Fix samples
21.12.2009 Fix checkpatch.pl, fix samples
20.12.2009 Bug fixing
           Fix samples
19.12.2009 First draft
13.12.2009 First implementation of a type safe fifo implementation, called kqueue

There are different types of a fifo which can not handled in C without a
lot of overhead. So i decided to write the API as a set of macros, which 
is the only way to do a kind of template meta programming without C++. 
This macros handles the different types of fifos in a transparent way.

There are a lot of benefits:

- Compile time handling of the different fifo types
- Better performance (a save put or get of an integer does only generate 
  9 assembly instructions on a x86) 
- Type save
- Cleaner interface, the additional kfifo_..._rec() functions are gone
- Easier to use
- Less error prone
- Different types of fifos: it is now possible to define a int fifo or
  any other type. See below for an example.
- Smaller footprint for none byte type fifos
- No need of creating a second hidden variable, like in the old DEFINE_KFIFO

The API was not changed.

There are now real in place fifos where the data space is a part of the 
structure. There is no need for an extra indirection to access the data.

The fifo needs now 20 byte plus the fifo space. Dynamic assigned or allocated 
does create a little bit more code.

Most of the macros code will be optimized away and simple generate a 
function call. Only the really small one generates inline code.

Additional you can now create fifos for any data type, not only the
"unsigned char" byte streamed fifos.

There is also a new kfifo_put and kfifo_get function, to handle a single
element in a fifo. This macros generates inline code, which is lit bit
larger but faster.

Here are the examples how to use it:

Example 1: an integer fifo

#include "kfifo.h"

#define FIFO_SIZE	32

#define	DYNAMIC
#ifdef DYNAMIC
static DECLARE_KFIFO_PTR(test, int);
#else
static DECLARE_KFIFO(test, int, FIFO_SIZE);
#endif

int testfunc(void)
{
	int		i;
	int		buf[6];
	unsigned int 	ret;
	unsigned int 	copied;

#ifdef DYNAMIC
	if (kfifo_alloc(&test, FIFO_SIZE, 0)) {
		printk("error kfifo_alloc\n");
		return 1;
	}
#else
	INIT_KFIFO(test);
#endif

	printk("int fifo test start\n");

	if (kfifo_initialized(&test))
		printk("fifo is initalized\n");

	for(i = 0; i != 10; i++)
		kfifo_put(&test, &i);

	printk("queue peek: %u\n", kfifo_peek_len(&test));

	ret = kfifo_to_user(&test, buf, kfifo_sizeof(&test) * 2, &copied);
	printk("ret: %d %u\n", ret, copied);
	ret = kfifo_from_user(&test, buf, copied, &copied);
	printk("ret: %d %u\n", ret, copied);
	ret = kfifo_out(&test, buf, 1);
	printk("ret: %d\n", ret);
	ret = kfifo_in(&test, buf, 1);
	printk("ret: %d\n", ret);

	for(i = 20; i != 30; i++)
		kfifo_put(&test, &i);

	printk("queue len: %u\n", kfifo_len(&test));

	if (kfifo_peek(&test, &i))
		printk("%d\n", i);

	while(kfifo_get(&test, &i))
		printk("%d ", i);
	printk("\n");

	return 0;
}


Example 2: DMA usage

#include "kfifo.h"

#define FIFO_SIZE	32

static struct kfifo fifo;

int testfunc(void)
{
	int 			i;
	unsigned int 		ret;
	/* kfifo_dma_* will never return more than two sgl entries */
	struct scatterlist	sg[2];

	printk("DMA fifo test start\n");

	if (kfifo_alloc(&fifo, FIFO_SIZE, 0)) {
		printk("error kfifo_alloc\n");
		return 1;
	}

	printk("queue size: %u\n", kfifo_size(&fifo));

	kfifo_in(&fifo, "test", 4);

	for(i = 0; i != 9; i++)
		kfifo_put(&fifo, &i);

	/* kick away first byte */
	kfifo_get(&fifo, &i);

	printk("queue len: %u\n", kfifo_len(&fifo));

	ret = kfifo_dma_in_prepare(&fifo, sg, ARRAY_SIZE(sg), FIFO_SIZE);
	printk("DMA sgl entries: %d\n", ret);

	/* if 0 was returned, fifo is full and no sgl was created */
	if (ret) {
		printk("scatterlist for receive:\n");
		for (i = 0; i < ARRAY_SIZE(sg); i++) {
			printk("sg[%d] -> page_link 0x%.8lx offset 0x%.8x len 0x%.8x\n",
					i, sg[i].page_link, sg[i].offset, sg[i].length);

			if (sg_is_last(&sg[i]))
				break;
		}

		/* but here your code to setup and exectute the dma operation */
		/* ... */

		/* example: zero bytes received */
		ret = 0;

		/* finish the dma operation and update the received data */
		kfifo_dma_in_finish(&fifo, ret);
	}

	ret = kfifo_dma_out_prepare(&fifo, sg, ARRAY_SIZE(sg), 8);
	printk("DMA sgl entries: %d\n", ret);

	/* if 0 was returned, no data was available and no sgl was created */
	if (ret) {
		printk("scatterlist for transmit:\n");
		for (i = 0; i < ARRAY_SIZE(sg); i++) {
			printk("sg[%d] -> page_link 0x%.8lx offset 0x%.8x len 0x%.8x\n",
					i, sg[i].page_link, sg[i].offset, sg[i].length);

			if (sg_is_last(&sg[i]))
				break;
		}

		/* but here your code to setup and exectute the dma operation */
		/* ... */

		/* example: 5 bytes transmitted */
		ret = 5;

		/* finish the dma operation and update the transmitted data */
		kfifo_dma_out_finish(&fifo, ret);
	}

	printk("queue len: %u\n", kfifo_len(&fifo));

	return 0;
}


Example 3: a bytes stream fifo

#include "kfifo.h"

#define FIFO_SIZE	32

//#define	DYNAMIC
#ifdef DYNAMIC
static struct kfifo test[1];
#else
static DECLARE_KFIFO(test[1], unsigned char, FIFO_SIZE);
#endif

int testfunc(void)
{
	unsigned char	buf[6];
	unsigned char	i;
	unsigned int	ret;
	unsigned int 	copied;

	printk("byte stream fifo test start\n");

#ifdef DYNAMIC
	if (kfifo_alloc(test, FIFO_SIZE, 0)) {
		printk("error kfifo_alloc\n");
		return 1;
	}
#else
	INIT_KFIFO(test[0]);
#endif

	printk("queue size: %u\n", kfifo_size(test));

	kfifo_in(test, "hello", 5);

	for(i = 0; i != 9; i++)
		kfifo_put(test, &i);

	printk("queue peek: %u\n", kfifo_peek_len(test));

	i = kfifo_out(test, buf, 5);
	printk("buf: %.*s\n", i, buf);

	ret = kfifo_to_user(test, buf, sizeof(int), &copied);
	printk("ret: %d %u\n", ret, copied);
	ret = kfifo_from_user(test, buf, copied, &copied);
	printk("ret: %d %u\n", ret, copied);

	ret = kfifo_out(test, buf, 2);
	printk("ret: %d\n", ret);
	ret = kfifo_in(test, buf, ret);
	printk("ret: %d\n", ret);

	printk("queue len: %u\n", kfifo_len(test));

	for(i = 20; kfifo_put(test, &i); i++)
		;

	while(kfifo_get(test, &i))
		printk("%d ", i);
	printk("\n");

	return 0;
}


Example 4: a dynamic record fifo

#include "kfifo.h"

#define FIFO_SIZE	128

#define DYNAMIC
#ifdef DYNAMIC
struct kfifo_rec_ptr_1 test[1];

#else
typedef STRUCT_KFIFO_REC_1(FIFO_SIZE) mytest;

static mytest test[1];
#endif

int testfunc(void)
{
	struct { unsigned char buf[6]; } hello = { "hello" };
	unsigned int	i;
	char		buf[100];
	unsigned int	ret;
	unsigned int 	copied = 0;

	printk("record fifo test start\n");

	if (kfifo_alloc(test, FIFO_SIZE, 0)) {
		printk("error kfifo_alloc\n");
		return 1;
	}
	printk("queue size: %u\n", kfifo_size(test));

	kfifo_in(test, &hello, sizeof(hello));

	printk("queue peek: %u\n", kfifo_peek_len(test));

	for(i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
		memset(buf,'a' + i, i + 1);
		kfifo_in(test, buf, i + 1);
	}

	ret = kfifo_to_user(test, buf, sizeof(buf), &copied);
	printk("ret: %d %u\n", ret, copied);
	ret = kfifo_from_user(test, buf, copied, &copied);
	printk("ret: %d %u\n", ret, copied);

	printk("queue len: %u\n", kfifo_len(test));

	ret = kfifo_peek(test, buf);
	if (ret)
		printk("%.*s\n", ret, buf);

	while(!kfifo_is_empty(test)) {
		ret = kfifo_out(test, buf, sizeof(buf));
		printk("%.*s\n", ret, buf);
	}

	return 0;
}


I know that this kind of macros are very sophisticated and not easy to
maintain. But i have all tested and it works as expected. I analyzed the
output of the compiler and for the x86 the code is as good as hand
written assembler code. For the byte stream fifo the generate code is exact 
the same as with the current kfifo implementation. For all other types of
fifos the code is smaller before, because the interface is easier to use. 

The main goal was to provide an API which is very intuitive, save and easy
to use. So linux will get now a powerful fifo API which provides all what 
a developer needs. This will save in the future a lot of kernel space, since
there is no need to write an own implementation. Most of the device driver 
developers need a fifo, and also deep kernel development will gain benefit 
from this API.

You can download the test code at www.seibold.net/kfifo.tgz

The patch-set is against linux 2.6.33-rc5. This code is ready to merge into 
the mm tree or linux next. Please review it and merge.
