2015-01-08Makefile: include arch/*/include/generated/uapi before .../generatedMichal Marek
The introduction of the uapi directories in v3.7-rc1 moved some of the generated headers from arch/*/include/generated to the uapi directory, keeping the #include directives intact. This creates a problem when bisecting, because the unversioned files are not cleaned automatically by git and the compiler might include stale headers as a result. Instead of cleaning them in the Makefiles, promote arch/*/include/generated/uapi in the search path. Under normal circumstances, there is no overlap between this uapi subdirectory and its parent, so the include choices remain the same. We keep arch/*/include/generated/uapi in the USERINCLUDE variable so that it is usable standalone. Note that we cannot completely swap the order of the uapi and kernel-only directories, since the headers in include/uapi/asm-generic are meant to be wrapped by their include/asm-generic counterparts when building kernel code.

2014-11-28kbuild: Automatically remove stale <linux/version.h> fileMichal Marek
In 3.7, the file moved from include/linux/ to include/generated/uapi/linux/. The path in the #include directive remained the same for compatibility reasons, but this created a problem when bisecting. Commit 9c8cdb71 (kbuild: unconditionally clobber include/linux/version.h on distclean) fixes this, provided the user does make distclean between builds. Better not rely on the user and delete the stale file each time make is invoked.

2014-11-26kbuild: collect shorthands into scripts/Kbuild.includeMasahiro Yamada
The shorthand "clean" is defined in both the top Makefile and scripts/Makefile.clean. Likewise, the "hdr-inst" is defined in both the top Makefile and scripts/Makefile.headersinst. To reduce code duplication, this commit collects them into scripts/Kbuild.include like the "build" and "modbuiltin" shorthands. It requires scripts/Makefile.clean to include scripts/Kbuild.include, but its impact on the performance of "make clean" should be negligible.

2014-11-15kernel: use the gnu89 standard explicitlyKirill A. Shutemov
Sasha Levin reports: "gcc5 changes the default standard to c11, which makes kernel build unhappy Explicitly define the kernel standard to be gnu89 which should keep everything working exactly like it was before gcc5" There are multiple small issues with the new default, but the biggest issue seems to be that the old - and very useful - GNU extension to allow a cast in front of an initializer has gone away. Patch updated by Kirill: "I'm pretty sure all gcc versions you can build kernel with supports -std=gnu89. cc-option is redunrant. We also need to adjust HOSTCFLAGS otherwise allmodconfig fails for me" Note by Andrew Pinski: "Yes it was reported and both problems relating to this extension has been added to gnu99 and gnu11. Though there are other issues with the kernel dealing with extern inline have different semantics between gnu89 and gnu99/11" End result: we may be able to move up to a newer stdc model eventually, but right now the newer models have some annoying deficiencies, so the traditional "gnu89" model ends up being the preferred one.

2014-08-27kbuild: handle module compression while running 'make modules_install'.Bertrand Jacquin
Since module-init-tools (gzip) and kmod (gzip and xz) support compressed modules, it could be useful to include a support for compressing modules right after having them installed. Doing this in kbuild instead of per distro can permit to make this kind of usage more generic. This patch add a Kconfig entry to "Enable loadable module support" menu and let you choose to compress using gzip (default) or xz. Both gzip and xz does not used any extra -[1-9] option since Andi Kleen and Rusty Russell prove no gain is made using them. gzip is called with -n argument to avoid storing original filename inside compressed file, that way we can save some more bytes. On a v3.16 kernel, 'make allmodconfig' generated 4680 modules for a total of 378MB (no strip, no sign, no compress), the following table shows observed disk space gain based on the allmodconfig .config : | time | +-------------+-----------------+ | manual .ko | make | size | percent | compression | modules_install | | gain +-------------+-----------------+------+-------- - | | 18.61s | 378M | GZIP | 3m16s | 3m37s | 102M | 73.41% XZ | 5m22s | 5m39s | 77M | 79.83% The gain for restricted environnement seems to be interesting while uncompress can be time consuming but happens only while loading a module, that is generally done only once. This is fully compatible with signed modules while the signed module is compressed. module-init-tools or kmod handles decompression and provide to other layer the uncompressed but signed payload.

2014-08-06./Makefile: tell gcc optimizer to never introduce new data racesJiri Kosina
We have been chasing a memory corruption bug, which turned out to be caused by very old gcc (4.3.4), which happily turned conditional load into a non-conditional one, and that broke correctness (the condition was met only if lock was held) and corrupted memory. This particular problem with that particular code did not happen when never gccs were used. I've brought this up with our gcc folks, as I wanted to make sure that this can't really happen again, and it turns out it actually can. Quoting Martin Jambor <mjambor@suse.cz>: "More current GCCs are more careful when it comes to replacing a conditional load with a non-conditional one, most notably they check that a store happens in each iteration of _a_ loop but they assume loops are executed. They also perform a simple check whether the store cannot trap which currently passes only for non-const variables. A simple testcase demonstrating it on an x86_64 is for example the following: $ cat cond_store.c int g_1 = 1; int g_2[1024] __attribute__((section ("safe_section"), aligned (4096))); int c = 4; int __attribute__ ((noinline)) foo (void) { int l; for (l = 0; (l != 4); l++) { if (g_1) return l; for (g_2[0] = 0; (g_2[0] >= 26); ++g_2[0]) ; } return 2; } int main (int argc, char* argv[]) { if (mprotect (g_2, sizeof(g_2), PROT_READ) == -1) { int e = errno; error (e, e, "mprotect error %i", e); } foo (); __builtin_printf("OK\n"); return 0; } /* EOF */ $ ~/gcc/trunk/inst/bin/gcc cond_store.c -O2 --param allow-store-data-races=0 $ ./a.out OK $ ~/gcc/trunk/inst/bin/gcc cond_store.c -O2 --param allow-store-data-races=1 $ ./a.out Segmentation fault The testcase fails the same at least with 4.9, 4.8 and 4.7. Therefore I would suggest building kernels with this parameter set to zero. I also agree with Jikos that the default should be changed for -O2. I have run most of the SPEC 2k6 CPU benchmarks (gamess and dealII failed, at -O2, not sure why) compiled with and without this option and did not see any real difference between respective run-times" Hopefully the default will be changed in newer gccs, but let's force it for kernel builds so that we are on a safe side even when older gcc are used. The code in question was out-of-tree printk-in-NMI (yeah, surprise suprise, once again) patch written by Petr Mladek, let me quote his comment from our internal bugzilla: "I have spent few days investigating inconsistent state of kernel ring buffer. It went out that it was caused by speculative store generated by gcc-4.3.4. The problem is in assembly generated for make_free_space(). The functions is called the following way: + vprintk_emit(); + log = MAIN_LOG; // with logbuf_lock or log = NMI_LOG; // with nmi_logbuf_lock cont_add(log, ...); + cont_flush(log, ...); + log_store(log, ...); + log_make_free_space(log, ...); If called with log = NMI_LOG then only nmi_log_* global variables are safe to modify but the generated code does store also into (main_)log_* global variables: <log_make_free_space>: 55 push %rbp 89 f6 mov %esi,%esi 48 8b 05 03 99 51 01 mov 0x1519903(%rip),%rax # ffffffff82620868 <nmi_log_next_id> 44 8b 1d ec 98 51 01 mov 0x15198ec(%rip),%r11d # ffffffff82620858 <log_next_idx> 8b 35 36 60 14 01 mov 0x1146036(%rip),%esi # ffffffff8224cfa8 <log_buf_len> 44 8b 35 33 60 14 01 mov 0x1146033(%rip),%r14d # ffffffff8224cfac <nmi_log_buf_len> 4c 8b 2d d0 98 51 01 mov 0x15198d0(%rip),%r13 # ffffffff82620850 <log_next_seq> 4c 8b 25 11 61 14 01 mov 0x1146111(%rip),%r12 # ffffffff8224d098 <log_buf> 49 89 c2 mov %rax,%r10 48 21 c2 and %rax,%rdx 48 8b 1d 0c 99 55 01 mov 0x155990c(%rip),%rbx # ffffffff826608a0 <nmi_log_buf> 49 c1 ea 20 shr $0x20,%r10 48 89 55 d0 mov %rdx,-0x30(%rbp) 44 29 de sub %r11d,%esi 45 29 d6 sub %r10d,%r14d 4c 8b 0d 97 98 51 01 mov 0x1519897(%rip),%r9 # ffffffff82620840 <log_first_seq> eb 7e jmp ffffffff81107029 <log_make_free_space+0xe9> [...] 85 ff test %edi,%edi # edi = 1 for NMI_LOG 4c 89 e8 mov %r13,%rax 4c 89 ca mov %r9,%rdx 74 0a je ffffffff8110703d <log_make_free_space+0xfd> 8b 15 27 98 51 01 mov 0x1519827(%rip),%edx # ffffffff82620860 <nmi_log_first_id> 48 8b 45 d0 mov -0x30(%rbp),%rax 48 39 c2 cmp %rax,%rdx # end of loop 0f 84 da 00 00 00 je ffffffff81107120 <log_make_free_space+0x1e0> [...] 85 ff test %edi,%edi # edi = 1 for NMI_LOG 4c 89 0d 17 97 51 01 mov %r9,0x1519717(%rip) # ffffffff82620840 <log_first_seq> ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ KABOOOM 74 35 je ffffffff81107160 <log_make_free_space+0x220> It stores log_first_seq when edi == NMI_LOG.

2014-07-30kbuild: Support split debug info v4Andi Kleen
This is an alternative approach to lower the overhead of debug info (as we discussed a few days ago) gcc 4.7+ and newer binutils have a new "split debug info" debug info model where the debug info is only written once into central ".dwo" files. This avoids having to copy it around multiple times, from the object files to the final executable. It lowers the disk space requirements. In addition it defaults to compressed debug data. More details here: http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/DebugFission This patch adds a new option to enable it. It has to be an option, because it'll undoubtedly break everyone's debuginfo packaging scheme. gdb/objdump/etc. all still work, if you have new enough versions. I don't see big compile wins (maybe a second or two faster or so), but the object dirs with debuginfo get significantly smaller. My standard kernel config (slightly bigger than defconfig) shrinks from 2.9G disk space to 1.1G objdir (with non reduced debuginfo). I presume if you are IO limited the compile time difference will be larger. Only problem I've seen so far is that it doesn't play well with older versions of ccache (apparently fixed, see https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10005) v2: various fixes from Dirk Gouders. Improve commit message slightly. v3: Fix clean rules and improve Kconfig slightly v4: Fix merge error in last version (Sam Ravnborg) Clarify description that it mainly helps disk size.

2014-07-26Fix gcc-4.9.0 miscompilation of load_balance() in schedulerLinus Torvalds
Michel Dänzer and a couple of other people reported inexplicable random oopses in the scheduler, and the cause turns out to be gcc mis-compiling the load_balance() function when debugging is enabled. The gcc bug apparently goes back to gcc-4.5, but slight optimization changes means that it now showed up as a problem in 4.9.0 and 4.9.1. The instruction scheduling problem causes gcc to schedule a spill operation to before the stack frame has been created, which in turn can corrupt the spilled value if an interrupt comes in. There may be other effects of this bug too, but that's the code generation problem seen in Michel's case. This is fixed in current gcc HEAD, but the workaround as suggested by Markus Trippelsdorf is pretty simple: use -fno-var-tracking-assignments when compiling the kernel, which disables the gcc code that causes the problem. This can result in slightly worse debug information for variable accesses, but that is infinitely preferable to actual code generation problems. Doing this unconditionally (not just for CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO) also allows non-debug builds to verify that the debug build would be identical: we can do export GCC_COMPARE_DEBUG=1 to make gcc internally verify that the result of the build is independent of the "-g" flag (it will make the compiler build everything twice, toggling the debug flag, and compare the results). Without the "-fno-var-tracking-assignments" option, the build would fail (even with 4.8.3 that didn't show the actual stack frame bug) with a gcc compare failure.
