2013-03-20genksyms: pass symbol-prefix instead of archJames Hogan
Pass symbol-prefix to genksyms instead of arch, so that the decision what symbol prefix to use is kept in one place. Basically genksyms used to take a -a $ARCH argument and it used that to determine whether to add an underscore symbol prefix. It's now changed to take a -s $SYMBOL_PREFIX argument so that the caller decides whether a symbol prefix is required. The build system then uses CONFIG_HAVE_UNDERSCORE_SYMBOL_PREFIX to determine whether to pass the argument.

2012-10-08X.509: Add simple ASN.1 grammar compilerDavid Howells
Add a simple ASN.1 grammar compiler. This produces a bytecode output that can be fed to a decoder to inform the decoder how to interpret the ASN.1 stream it is trying to parse. Action functions can be specified in the grammar by interpolating: ({ foo }) after a type, for example: SubjectPublicKeyInfo ::= SEQUENCE { algorithm AlgorithmIdentifier, subjectPublicKey BIT STRING ({ do_key_data }) } The decoder is expected to call these after matching this type and parsing the contents if it is a constructed type. The grammar compiler does not currently support the SET type (though it does support SET OF) as I can't see a good way of tracking which members have been encountered yet without using up extra stack space. Currently, the grammar compiler will fail if more than 256 bytes of bytecode would be produced or more than 256 actions have been specified as it uses 8-bit jump values and action indices to keep space usage down.

2011-04-28kbuild: implement several W= levelsSam Ravnborg
Building a kernel with "make W=1" produces far too much noise to be useful. Divide the warning options in three groups: W=1 - warnings that may be relevant and does not occur too often W=2 - warnings that occur quite often but may still be relevant W=3 - the more obscure warnings, can most likely be ignored When building the whole kernel, those levels produce: W=1 - 4859 warnings W=2 - 1394 warnings W=3 - 86666 warnings respectively. Warnings have been counted with Geert's script at http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/geert/linux-log/linux-log-summary.pl Many warnings occur from .h files so fixing one file may have a nice effect on the total number of warnings. With these changes I am actually tempted to try W=1 now and then. Previously there was just too much noise.

2010-11-18ftrace: Speed up recordmcountWu Zhangjin
cmd_record_mcount is used to locate the _mcount symbols in the object files, only the files compiled with -pg has the _mcount symbol, so, it is only needed for such files, but the current cmd_record_mcount is used for all of the object files, so, we need to fix it and speed it up. Since -pg may be removed by the method used in kernel/trace/Makefile: ORIG_CFLAGS := $(KBUILD_CFLAGS) KBUILD_CFLAGS = $(subst -pg,,$(ORIG_CFLAGS)) Or may be removed by the method used in arch/x86/kernel/Makefile: CFLAGS_REMOVE_file.o = -pg So, we must check the last variable stores the compiling flags, that is c_flags(Please refer to cmd_cc_o_c and rule_cc_o_c defined in scripts/Makefile.build) and since the CFLAGS_REMOVE_file.o is already filtered in _c_flags(Please refer to scripts/Makefile.lib) and _c_flags has less symbols, therefore, we only need to check _c_flags. --------------- Changes from v1: o Don't touch Makefile for CONFIG_FTRACE_MCOUNT_RECORD is enough o Use _c_flags intead of KBUILD_CFLAGS to cover CONFIG_REMOVE_file.o = -pg (feedback from Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>) Acked-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Wu Zhangjin <wuzhangjin@gmail.com> LKML-Reference: <3dc8cddf022eb7024f9f2cf857529a15bee8999a.1288196498.git.wuzhangjin@gmail.com> [ changed if [ .. == .. ] to if [ .. = .. ] to handle dash environments ] Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

2010-10-18ftrace: Remove recursion between recordmcount and scripts/mod/emptySteven Rostedt
When DYNAMIC_FTRACE is enabled and we use the C version of recordmcount, all objects are run through the recordmcount program to create a separate section that stores all the callers of mcount. The build process has a special file: scripts/mod/empty.o. This is built from empty.c which is literally an empty file (except for a single comment). This file is used to find information about the target elf format, like endianness and word size. The problem comes up when we need to build recordmcount. The build process requires that empty.o is built first. The build rules for empty.o will try to execute recordmcount on the empty.o file. We get an error that recordmcount does not exist. To avoid this recursion, the build file will skip running recordmcount if the file that it is building is script/mod/empty.o.

commit 37a8d9f67f18de1e2cbc7387311ce22d4dbff518 tried to combine some duplicate code and accidentally broke how KBUILD_SYMTYPES worked This fixes the code to match the original intention by the author who originally added the code I believe. The fixes include: - removing extra whitespaces in the if-statements - moving the if-statement from around the -r to the -T - adding a second arg to cmd_gensymtypes to simplify the options passed to genksyms. Tested by instrumenting genksyms and seeing what options were passed in during a make, KBUILD_SYMTYPES make, and when a foo.symref was created. Everything compiled and looked ok.

2009-09-21kbuild: Don't define ALIGN and ENTRY when preprocessing linker scripts.Tim Abbott
Adding a reference to <linux/linkage.h> to x86's <asm/cache.h> causes the x86 linker script to have syntax errors, because the ALIGN and ENTRY keywords get redefined to the assembly implementations of those. One could fix this by adjusting the include structure, but I think any solution based on that approach would be fragile. Currently, it is impossible when writing a header to do something different for assembly files and linker scripts, even though there are clearly cases where one wants them to define macros differently for the two (ENTRY being an excellent example). So I think the right solution here is to introduce a new preprocessor definition, called LINKER_SCRIPT that is set along with __ASSEMBLY__ for linker scripts, and to use that to not define ALIGN and ENTRY in linker scripts. I suspect we'll find other uses for this mechanism in the future. Signed-off-by: Tim Abbott <tabbott@ksplice.com> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

2008-12-19kbuild: strip generated symbols from *.koJan Beulich
This patch changes the way __crc_ symbols are being resolved from using ld to do so to using the assembler, thus allowing these symbols to be marked local (the linker creates then as global ones) and hence allow stripping (for modules) or ignoring (for vmlinux) them. While at this, also strip other generated symbols during module installation. One potentially debatable point is the handling of the flags passeed to gcc when translating the intermediate assembly file into an object: passing $(c_flags) unchanged doesn't work as gcc passes --gdwarf2 to gas whenever is sees any -g* option, even for -g0, and despite the fact that the compiler would have already produced all necessary debug info in the C->assembly translation phase. I took the approach of just filtering out all -g* options, but an alternative to such negative filtering might be to have a positive filter which might, in the ideal case allow just all the -Wa,* options to pass through.

2008-12-03genksyms: track symbol checksum changesAndreas Gruenbacher
Sometimes it is preferable to avoid changes of exported symbol checksums (to avoid breaking externally provided modules). When a checksum change occurs, it can be hard to figure out what caused this change: underlying types may have changed, or additional type information may simply have become available at the point where a symbol is exported. Add a new --reference option to genksyms which allows it to report why checksums change, based on the type information dumps it creates with the --dump-types flag. Genksyms will read in such a dump from a previous run, and report which symbols have changed (and why). The behavior can be controlled for an entire build as follows: If KBUILD_SYMTYPES is set, genksyms uses --dump-types to produce *.symtypes dump files. If any *.symref files exist, those will be used as the reference to check against. If KBUILD_PRESERVE is set, checksum changes will fail the build.

2008-10-23ftrace: handle generic arch callsSteven Rostedt
The recordmcount script requires that the actual arch is passed in. This works well when ARCH=i386 or ARCH=x86_64 but does not handle the case of ARCH=x86. This patch adds a parameter to the function to pass in the number of bits of the architecture. So that it can determine if x86 should be run for x86_64 or i386 archs.

2008-10-14ftrace: create __mcount_loc sectionSteven Rostedt
This patch creates a section in the kernel called "__mcount_loc". This will hold a list of pointers to the mcount relocation for each call site of mcount. For example: objdump -dr init/main.o [...] Disassembly of section .text: 0000000000000000 <do_one_initcall>: 0: 55 push %rbp [...] 000000000000017b <init_post>: 17b: 55 push %rbp 17c: 48 89 e5 mov %rsp,%rbp 17f: 53 push %rbx 180: 48 83 ec 08 sub $0x8,%rsp 184: e8 00 00 00 00 callq 189 <init_post+0xe> 185: R_X86_64_PC32 mcount+0xfffffffffffffffc [...] We will add a section to point to each function call. .section __mcount_loc,"a",@progbits [...] .quad .text + 0x185 [...] The offset to of the mcount call site in init_post is an offset from the start of the section, and not the start of the function init_post. The mcount relocation is at the call site 0x185 from the start of the .text section. .text + 0x185 == init_post + 0xa We need a way to add this __mcount_loc section in a way that we do not lose the relocations after final link. The .text section here will be attached to all other .text sections after final link and the offsets will be meaningless. We need to keep track of where these .text sections are. To do this, we use the start of the first function in the section. do_one_initcall. We can make a tmp.s file with this function as a reference to the start of the .text section. .section __mcount_loc,"a",@progbits [...] .quad do_one_initcall + 0x185 [...] Then we can compile the tmp.s into a tmp.o gcc -c tmp.s -o tmp.o And link it into back into main.o. ld -r main.o tmp.o -o tmp_main.o mv tmp_main.o main.o But we have a problem. What happens if the first function in a section is not exported, and is a static function. The linker will not let the tmp.o use it. This case exists in main.o as well. Disassembly of section .init.text: 0000000000000000 <set_reset_devices>: 0: 55 push %rbp 1: 48 89 e5 mov %rsp,%rbp 4: e8 00 00 00 00 callq 9 <set_reset_devices+0x9> 5: R_X86_64_PC32 mcount+0xfffffffffffffffc The first function in .init.text is a static function. 00000000000000a8 t __setup_set_reset_devices 000000000000105f t __setup_str_set_reset_devices 0000000000000000 t set_reset_devices The lowercase 't' means that set_reset_devices is local and is not exported. If we simply try to link the tmp.o with the set_reset_devices we end up with two symbols: one local and one global. .section __mcount_loc,"a",@progbits .quad set_reset_devices + 0x10 00000000000000a8 t __setup_set_reset_devices 000000000000105f t __setup_str_set_reset_devices 0000000000000000 t set_reset_devices U set_reset_devices We still have an undefined reference to set_reset_devices, and if we try to compile the kernel, we will end up with an undefined reference to set_reset_devices, or even worst, it could be exported someplace else, and then we will have a reference to the wrong location. To handle this case, we make an intermediate step using objcopy. We convert set_reset_devices into a global exported symbol before linking it with tmp.o and set it back afterwards. 00000000000000a8 t __setup_set_reset_devices 000000000000105f t __setup_str_set_reset_devices 0000000000000000 T set_reset_devices 00000000000000a8 t __setup_set_reset_devices 000000000000105f t __setup_str_set_reset_devices 0000000000000000 T set_reset_devices 00000000000000a8 t __setup_set_reset_devices 000000000000105f t __setup_str_set_reset_devices 0000000000000000 t set_reset_devices Now we have a section in main.o called __mcount_loc that we can place somewhere in the kernel using vmlinux.ld.S and access it to convert all these locations that call mcount into nops before starting SMP and thus, eliminating the need to do this with kstop_machine.

2008-01-28kbuild: implement modules.orderTejun Heo
When multiple built-in modules (especially drivers) provide the same capability, they're prioritized by link order specified by the order listed in Makefile. This implicit ordering is lost for loadable modules. When driver modules are loaded by udev, what comes first in modules.alias file is selected. However, the order in this file is indeterministic (depends on filesystem listing order of installed modules). This causes confusion. The solution is two-parted. This patch updates kbuild such that it generates and installs modules.order which contains the name of modules ordered according to Makefile. The second part is update to depmod such that it generates output files according to this file. Note that both obj-y and obj-m subdirs can contain modules and ordering information between those two are lost from beginning. Currently obj-y subdirs are put before obj-m subdirs. Sam Ravnborg cleaned up Makefile modifications and suggested using awk to remove duplicate lines from modules.order instead of using separate C program.

Introduce ccflags-y, asflags-y and ldflags-y so we soon can deprecate use of EXTRA_CFLAGS, EXTRA_AFLAGS and EXTRA_LDFLAGS. This patch does not touch any in-tree users - thats next round. Lets get this committed first and then fix the users of the soon to be deprecated variants next. The rationale behind this change is to introduce support for makefile fragments like: ccflags-$(CONFIG_WHATEVER_DEBUG) := -DDEBUG As a replacement for the uglier: ifeq ($(CONFIG_WHATEVER_DEBUG),y) EXTRA_CFLAGS := -DDEBUG endif Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
2007-10-14kbuild: check for wrong use of CFLAGSSam Ravnborg
External modules have in a few cases modifed gcc option by modifying CFLAGS. This has never been documented and was a bad practice. With the check to use KBUILD_CFLAGS it will no longer work so we better error out and tell what was wrong as a service to the external module users. This check can be overruled if KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC is set to something. Addid this possibility may allow older external module to build without any code modifications but potentially only loosing some un-important gcc options.
