2019-08-29ARM: 8900/1: UNWINDER_FRAME_POINTER implementation for ClangNathan Huckleberry
The stackframe setup when compiled with clang is different. Since the stack unwinder expects the gcc stackframe setup it fails to print backtraces. This patch adds support for the clang stackframe setup.

2019-02-12ARM: 8833/1: Ensure that NEON code always compiles with ClangNathan Chancellor
While building arm32 allyesconfig, I ran into the following errors: arch/arm/lib/xor-neon.c:17:2: error: You should compile this file with '-mfloat-abi=softfp -mfpu=neon' In file included from lib/raid6/neon1.c:27: /home/nathan/cbl/prebuilt/lib/clang/8.0.0/include/arm_neon.h:28:2: error: "NEON support not enabled" Building V=1 showed NEON_FLAGS getting passed along to Clang but __ARM_NEON__ was not getting defined. Ultimately, it boils down to Clang only defining __ARM_NEON__ when targeting armv7, rather than armv6k, which is the '-march' value for allyesconfig. >From lib/Basic/Targets/ARM.cpp in the Clang source: // This only gets set when Neon instructions are actually available, unlike // the VFP define, hence the soft float and arch check. This is subtly // different from gcc, we follow the intent which was that it should be set // when Neon instructions are actually available. if ((FPU & NeonFPU) && !SoftFloat && ArchVersion >= 7) { Builder.defineMacro("__ARM_NEON", "1"); Builder.defineMacro("__ARM_NEON__"); // current AArch32 NEON implementations do not support double-precision // floating-point even when it is present in VFP. Builder.defineMacro("__ARM_NEON_FP", "0x" + Twine::utohexstr(HW_FP & ~HW_FP_DP)); } Ard Biesheuvel recommended explicitly adding '-march=armv7-a' at the beginning of the NEON_FLAGS definitions so that __ARM_NEON__ always gets definined by Clang. This doesn't functionally change anything because that code will only run where NEON is supported, which is implicitly armv7.

2018-01-21ARM: 8745/1: get rid of __memzero()Nicolas Pitre
The __memzero assembly code is almost identical to memset's except for two orr instructions. The runtime performance of __memset(p, n) and memset(p, 0, n) is accordingly almost identical. However, the memset() macro used to guard against a zero length and to call __memzero at compile time when the fill value is a constant zero interferes with compiler optimizations. Arnd found tha the test against a zero length brings up some new warnings with gcc v8: https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=82103 And successively rremoving the test against a zero length and the call to __memzero optimization produces the following kernel sizes for defconfig with gcc 6: text data bss dec hex filename 12248142 6278960 413588 18940690 1210312 vmlinux.orig 12244474 6278960 413588 18937022 120f4be vmlinux.no_zero_test 12239160 6278960 413588 18931708 120dffc vmlinux.no_memzero So it is probably not worth keeping __memzero around given that the compiler can do a better job at inlining trivial memset(p,0,n) on its own. And the memset code already handles a zero length just fine.

2017-11-02License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no licenseGreg Kroah-Hartman
Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license. By default all files without license information are under the default license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2. Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0' SPDX license identifier. The SPDX identifier is a legally binding shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text. This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and Philippe Ombredanne. How this work was done: Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of the use cases: - file had no licensing information it it. - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it, - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information, Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords. The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne. Philippe prepared the base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files. The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files assessed. Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s) to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was: - Files considered eligible had to be source code files. - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5 lines of source - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5 lines). All documentation files were explicitly excluded. The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license identifiers to apply. - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was considered to have no license information in it, and the top level COPYING file license applied. For non */uapi/* files that summary was: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------- GPL-2.0 11139 and resulted in the first patch in this series. If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0". Results of that was: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------- GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note 930 and resulted in the second patch in this series. - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in it (per prior point). Results summary: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------ GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note 270 GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 169 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause) 21 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause) 17 LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 15 GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 14 ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause) 5 LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 4 LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note 3 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT) 3 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT) 1 and that resulted in the third patch in this series. - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became the concluded license(s). - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a license but the other didn't, or they both detected different licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred. - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics). - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier, the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later in time. In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights. The Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so they are related. Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks in about 15000 files. In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the correct identifier. Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch version early this week with: - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected license ids and scores - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+ files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction. This worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the different types of files to be modified. These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg. Thomas wrote a script to parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the format that the file expected. This script was further refined by Greg based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different comment types.) Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to generate the patches.

The Shark machine sub-architecture (also known as DNARD, the DIGITAL Network Appliance Reference Design) lacks a maintainer able to apply and test patches to modernize the architecture. It is suspected that the current kernel, while it compiles, does not even boot on this machine. The listed maintainer has expressed that he will not be able to spend any time on the maintenance for the coming year. So let's delete it from the kernel for now. It can always be resurrected with git revert if maintenance is resumed. As the VIA82c505 PCI adapter was only used by this architecture, that gets deleted too.

2012-07-09ARM: 7452/1: delay: allow timer-based delay implementation to be selectedWill Deacon
This patch allows a timer-based delay implementation to be selected by switching the delay routines over to use get_cycles, which is implemented in terms of read_current_timer. This further allows us to skip the loop calibration and have a consistent delay function in the face of core frequency scaling. To avoid the pain of dealing with memory-mapped counters, this implementation uses the co-processor interface to the architected timers when they are available. The previous loop-based implementation is kept around for CPUs without the architected timers and we retain both the maximum delay (2ms) and the corresponding conversion factors for determining the number of loops required for a given interval. Since the indirection of the timer routines will only work when called from C, the sa1100 sleep routines are modified to branch to the loop-based delay functions directly.

2011-12-12ARM: lib: add call_with_stack function for safely changing stackWill Deacon
When disabling the MMU, it is necessary to take out a 1:1 identity map of the reset code so that it can safely be executed with and without the MMU active. To avoid the situation where the physical address of the reset code aliases with the virtual address of the active stack (which cannot be included in the 1:1 mapping), it is desirable to change to a new stack at a location which is less likely to alias. This code adds a new lib function, call_with_stack: void call_with_stack(void (*fn)(void *), void *arg, void *sp); which changes the stack to point at the sp parameter, before invoking fn(arg) with the new stack selected.

2011-08-07arm: remove "optimized" SHA1 routinesLinus Torvalds
Since commit 1eb19a12bd22 ("lib/sha1: use the git implementation of SHA-1"), the ARM SHA1 routines no longer work. The reason? They depended on the larger 320-byte workspace, and now the sha1 workspace is just 16 words (64 bytes). So the assembly version would overwrite the stack randomly. The optimized asm version is also probably slower than the new improved C version, so there's no reason to keep it around. At least that was the case in git, where what appears to be the same assembly language version was removed two years ago because the optimized C BLK_SHA1 code was faster.

2009-05-29[ARM] alternative copy_to_user/clear_user implementationLennert Buytenhek
This implements {copy_to,clear}_user() by faulting in the userland pages and then using the regular kernel mem{cpy,set}() to copy the data (while holding the page table lock). This is a win if the regular mem{cpy,set}() implementations are faster than the user copy functions, which is the case e.g. on Feroceon, where 8-word STMs (which memcpy() uses under the right conditions) give significantly higher memory write throughput than a sequence of individual 32bit stores. Here are numbers for page sized buffers on some Feroceon cores: - copy_to_user on Orion5x goes from 51 MB/s to 83 MB/s - clear_user on Orion5x goes from 89MB/s to 314MB/s - copy_to_user on Kirkwood goes from 240 MB/s to 356 MB/s - clear_user on Kirkwood goes from 367 MB/s to 1108 MB/s - copy_to_user on Disco-Duo goes from 248 MB/s to 398 MB/s - clear_user on Disco-Duo goes from 328 MB/s to 1741 MB/s Because the setup cost is non negligible, this is worthwhile only if the amount of data to copy is large enough. The operation falls back to the standard implementation when the amount of data is below a certain threshold. This threshold was determined empirically, however some targets could benefit from a lower runtime determined value for optimal results eventually. In the copy_from_user() case, this technique does not provide any worthwhile performance gain due to the fact that any kind of read access allocates the cache and subsequent 32bit loads are just as fast as the equivalent 8-word LDM.

2005-11-01[ARM] 2947/1: copy template with new memcpy/memmoveNicolas Pitre
Patch from Nicolas Pitre This patch provides a new implementation for optimized memory copy functions on ARM. It is made of two levels: a template that consists of the core copy code and separate files that define macros to be used with the core code depending on the type of copy needed. This allows for best performances while sharing the same core for implementing memcpy(), copy_from_user() and copy_to_user() for instance. Two reasons for this work: 1) the current copy_to_user/copy_from_user implementation assumes no task switch will ever occur in the middle of each copied page making it completely unsafe with CONFIG_PREEMPT=y. 2) current copy implementations are measurably suboptimal and optimizing different implementations separately is a pain and more opportunities for bugs. The reason for (1) is the fact that copy inside user pages are performed with the ldm instruction which has no mean for testing user protections and could possibly race with process preemption bypassing the COW mechanism for example. This is a longstanding issue that we said ought to be fixed for about two years now. The solution is to substitute those ldm insns with a series of ldrt or strt insns to enforce user memory protection. At least on StrongARM and XScale cores the ldm is not faster than the equivalent ldr/str insns with a warm i-cache so there is no measurable performance degradation with that change. The fact that the copy code is a template makes it pretty easy to reuse the same core code as for memcpy and benefit from the same performance optimizations. Now (2) is best demonstrated with actual throughput measurements. First, here is a summary of memcopy tests performed on a StrongARM core: PTR alignment buffer size kernel version this version ------------------------------------------------------------ aligned 32 59.73 107.43 unaligned 32 61.31 74.72 aligned 100 132.47 136.15 unaligned 100 103.84 123.76 aligned 4096 130.67 130.80 unaligned 4096 130.68 130.64 aligned 1048576 68.03 68.18 unaligned 1048576 68.03 68.18 The buffer size is in bytes and the measured speed in MB/s. The copy was performed repeatedly with given buffer and throughput averaged over 3 seconds. Here we can see that the current kernel version has a higher entry cost that shows up with small buffers. As buffer size grows both implementation converge to the same throughput. Now here's the exact same test performed on an XScale core (PXA255): PTR alignment buffer size kernel version this version ------------------------------------------------------------ aligned 32 46.99 77.58 unaligned 32 53.61 59.59 aligned 100 107.19 136.59 unaligned 100 83.61 97.58 aligned 4096 129.13 129.98 unaligned 4096 128.36 128.53 aligned 1048576 53.76 59.41 unaligned 1048576 33.67 56.96 Again we can see the entry setup cost being higher for the current kernel before getting to the main copy loop. Then throughput results converge as long as the buffer remains in the cache. Then the 1MB case shows more differences probably due to better pld placement and/or less instruction interlocks in this proposed implementation. Disclaimer: The PXA system was running with slower clocks than the StrongARM system so trying to infer any conclusion by comparing those separate sets of results side by side would be completely inappropriate. So... What this patch does is to replace both memcpy and memmove with an implementation based on the provided copy code template. The memmove code is kept separate since it is used only if the memory areas involved do overlap in which case the code is a transposition of the template but with the copy occurring in the opposite direction (trying to fit that mode into the template turned it into a mess not worth it for memmove alone). And obviously both memcpy and memmove were tested with all kinds of pointer alignments and buffer sizes to exercise all code paths for correctness. The next patch will provide the now trivial replacement implementation copy_to_user and copy_from_user.

On an XScale processor running at 400MHz: generic C version: 9.8 MB/s my version: 14.5 MB/s This code is useful to quite a few callers in the tree: crypto/sha1.c: sha_transform(sctx->state, sctx->buffer, temp); crypto/sha1.c: sha_transform(sctx->state, &data[i], temp); drivers/char/random.c: sha_transform(buf, (__u8 *)r->pool+i, buf + 5); drivers/char/random.c: sha_transform(buf, (__u8 *)data, buf + 5); net/ipv4/syncookies.c: sha_transform(tmp + 16, (__u8 *)tmp, tmp + 16 + 5); Signed-off-by: Nicolas Pitre <nico@cam.org> Seems to work fine on big-endian as well.

2005-06-29[PATCH] ARM: 2723/2: remove __udivdi3 and __umoddi3 from the kernelNicolas Pitre
Patch from Nicolas Pitre Those are big, slow and generally not recommended for kernel code. They are even not present on i386. So it should be concluded that one could as well get away with do_div() alone. Signed-off-by: Nicolas Pitre <nico@cam.org> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>

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!
