2020-07-31usr: Add support for zstd compressed initramfsNick Terrell
- Add support for a zstd compressed initramfs. - Add compression for compressing built-in initramfs with zstd. I have tested this patch by boot testing with buildroot and QEMU. Specifically, I booted the kernel with both a zstd and gzip compressed initramfs, both built into the kernel and separate. I ensured that the correct compression algorithm was used. I tested on arm, aarch64, i386, and x86_64. This patch has been tested in production on aarch64 and x86_64 devices. Additionally, I have performance measurements from internal use in production. On an aarch64 device we saw 19 second boot time improvement from switching from lzma to zstd (27 seconds to 8 seconds). On an x86_64 device we saw a 9 second boot time reduction from switching from xz to zstd.

2020-03-17initramfs: restore default compression behaviorEugeniy Paltsev
Even though INITRAMFS_SOURCE kconfig option isn't set in most of defconfigs it is used (set) extensively by various build systems. Commit f26661e12765 ("initramfs: make initramfs compression choice non-optional") has changed default compression mode. Previously we compress initramfs using available compression algorithm. Now we don't use any compression at all by default. It significantly increases the image size in case of build system chooses embedded initramfs. Initially I faced with this issue while using buildroot. As of today it's not possible to set preferred compression mode in target defconfig as this option depends on INITRAMFS_SOURCE being set. Modification of all build systems either doesn't look like good option. Let's instead rewrite initramfs compression mode choices list the way that "INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE" will be the last option in the list. In that case it will be chosen only if all other options (which implements any compression) are not available.

2020-02-03initramfs: do not show compression mode choice if INITRAMFS_SOURCE is emptyMasahiro Yamada
Since commit ddd09bcc899f ("initramfs: make compression options not depend on INITRAMFS_SOURCE"), Kconfig asks the compression mode for the built-in initramfs regardless of INITRAMFS_SOURCE. It is technically simpler, but pointless from a UI perspective, Linus says [1]. When INITRAMFS_SOURCE is empty, usr/Makefile creates a tiny default cpio, which is so small that nobody cares about the compression. This commit hides the Kconfig choice in that case. The default cpio is embedded without compression, which was the original behavior.

2020-01-16initramfs: refactor the initramfs build rulesMasahiro Yamada
Currently, usr/gen_initramfs.sh takes care of all the use-cases: [1] generates a cpio file unless CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE points to a single cpio archive [2] If CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE is the path to a cpio archive, use it as-is. [3] Compress the cpio file according to CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_* unless it is passed a compressed archive. To simplify the script, move [2] and [3] to usr/Makefile. If CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE is the path to a cpio archive, there is no need to run this shell script. For the cpio archive compression, you can re-use the rules from scripts/Makefile.lib .

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.

2017-06-02initramfs: fix disabling of initramfs (and its compression)Florian Fainelli
Commit db2aa7fd15e8 ("initramfs: allow again choice of the embedded initram compression algorithm") introduced the possibility to select the initramfs compression algorithm from Kconfig and while this is a nice feature it broke the use case described below. Here is what my build system does: - kernel is initially configured not to have an initramfs included - build the user space root file system - re-configure the kernel to have an initramfs included (CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE="/path/to/romfs") and set relevant CONFIG_INITRAMFS options, in my case, no compression option (CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE) - kernel is re-built with these options -> kernel+initramfs image is copied - kernel is re-built again without these options -> kernel image is copied Building a kernel without an initramfs means setting this option: CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE="" (and this one only) whereas building a kernel with an initramfs means setting these options: CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE="/home/fainelli/work/uclinux-rootfs/romfs /home/fainelli/work/uclinux-rootfs/misc/initramfs.dev" CONFIG_INITRAMFS_ROOT_UID=1000 CONFIG_INITRAMFS_ROOT_GID=1000 CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE=y CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION="" Commit db2aa7fd15e85 ("initramfs: allow again choice of the embedded initram compression algorithm") is problematic because CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION which is used to determine the initramfs_data.cpio extension/compression is a string, and due to how Kconfig works it will evaluate in order, how to assign it. Setting CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE with CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE="" cannot possibly work (because of the depends on INITRAMFS_SOURCE!="" imposed on CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION ) yet we still get CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION assigned to ".gz" because CONFIG_RD_GZIP=y is set in my kernel, even when there is no initramfs being built. So we basically end-up generating two initramfs_data.cpio* files, one without extension, and one with .gz. This causes usr/Makefile to track usr/initramfs_data.cpio.gz, and not usr/initramfs_data.cpio anymore, that is also largely problematic after 9e3596b0c6539e ("kbuild: initramfs cleanup, set target from Kconfig") because we used to track all possible initramfs_data files in the $(targets) variable before that commit. The end result is that the kernel with an initramfs clearly does not contain what we expect it to, it has a stale initramfs_data.cpio file built into it, and we keep re-generating an initramfs_data.cpio.gz file which is not the one that we want to include in the kernel image proper. The fix consists in hiding CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION when CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE="". This puts us back in a state to the pre-4.10 behavior where we can properly disable and re-enable initramfs within the same kernel .config file, and be in control of what CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION is set to.

2017-05-08initramfs: provide a way to ignore image provided by bootloaderDaniel Thompson
Many "embedded" architectures provide CMDLINE_FORCE to allow the kernel to override the command line provided by an inflexible bootloader. However there is currrently no way for the kernel to override the initramfs image provided by the bootloader meaning there are still ways for bootloaders to make things difficult for us. Fix this by introducing INITRAMFS_FORCE which can prevent the kernel from loading the bootloader supplied image. We use CMDLINE_FORCE (and its friend CMDLINE_EXTEND) to imply that the system has an inflexible bootloader. This allow us to avoid presenting this config option to users of systems where inflexible bootloaders aren't usually a problem.

2016-12-14initramfs: allow again choice of the embedded initram compression algorithmFrancisco Blas Izquierdo Riera (klondike)
Choosing the appropriate compression option when using an embedded initramfs can result in significant size differences in the resulting data. This is caused by avoiding double compression of the initramfs contents. For example on my tests, choosing CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE when compressing the kernel using XZ) results in up to 500KiB differences (9MiB to 8.5MiB) in the kernel size as the dictionary will not get polluted with uncomprensible data and may reuse kernel data too. Despite embedding an uncompressed initramfs, a user may want to allow for a compressed extra initramfs to be passed using the rd system, for example to boot a recovery system. 9ba4bcb645898d ("initramfs: read CONFIG_RD_ variables for initramfs compression") broke that behavior by making the choice based on CONFIG_RD_* instead of adding CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZ4. Saddly, CONFIG_RD_* is also used to choose the supported RD compression algorithms by the kernel and a user may want to support more than one. This patch also reverts commit 3e4e0f0a875 ("initramfs: remove "compression mode" choice") restoring back the "compression mode" choice and includes the CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZ4 option which was never added. As a result the following options are added or readed affecting the embedded initramfs compression: INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE Do no compression INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_GZIP Compress using gzip INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_BZIP2 Compress using bzip2 INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZMA Compress using lzma INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_XZ Compress using xz INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZO Compress using lzo INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZ4 Compress using lz4 These depend on the corresponding CONFIG_RD_* option being set (except NONE which has no dependencies). This patch depends on the previous one (the previous version didn't) to simplify the way in which the algorithm is chosen and keep backwards compatibility with the behaviour introduced by 9ba4bcb645898 ("initramfs: read CONFIG_RD_ variables for initramfs compression").

Unfortunately all of these always get compiled in if you want to support INITRDs, and can be only disabled when CONFIG_EXPERT is set. I don't see why I need to set EXPERT just to properly configure the initrd compression algorithms, and not always include every possible algorithm Usually the initrd is just compressed with gzip anyways, at least that's true on all distributions I use.

The meaning of CONFIG_EMBEDDED has long since been obsoleted; the option is used to configure any non-standard kernel with a much larger scope than only small devices. This patch renames the option to CONFIG_EXPERT in init/Kconfig and fixes references to the option throughout the kernel. A new CONFIG_EMBEDDED option is added that automatically selects CONFIG_EXPERT when enabled and can be used in the future to isolate options that should only be considered for embedded systems (RISC architectures, SLOB, etc). Calling the option "EXPERT" more accurately represents its intention: only expert users who understand the impact of the configuration changes they are making should enable it.

2011-01-13decompressors: add boot-time XZ supportLasse Collin
This implements the API defined in <linux/decompress/generic.h> which is used for kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. This patch together with the first patch is enough for XZ-compressed initramfs and initrd; XZ-compressed kernel will need arch-specific changes. The buffering requirements described in decompress_unxz.c are stricter than with gzip, so the relevant changes should be done to the arch-specific code when adding support for XZ-compressed kernel. Similarly, the heap size in arch-specific pre-boot code may need to be increased (30 KiB is enough). The XZ decompressor needs memmove(), memeq() (memcmp() == 0), and memzero() (memset(ptr, 0, size)), which aren't available in all arch-specific pre-boot environments. I'm including simple versions in decompress_unxz.c, but a cleaner solution would naturally be nicer. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2009-03-28bzip2/lzma: don't ask for compression mode for the default initramfsH. Peter Anvin
Impact: Kconfig noise reduction, documentation The default initramfs is so small that it makes no sense to worry about the additional memory taken by not double-compressing it. Therefore, don't bug the user with it. Also, improve the description of the option, which was downright incorrect. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
2009-03-28bzip2/lzma: consistently capitalize LZMA in KconfigH. Peter Anvin
Impact: message formatting Consistently spell LZMA in all capitals, since it (unlike gzip or bzip2) is an acronym. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
2009-03-28bzip2/lzma: clarify the meaning of the CONFIG_RD_ optionsH. Peter Anvin
Impact: Kconfig clarification Make it clear that the CONFIG_RD_* options are about what formats are supported, not about what formats are actually being used. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
2009-03-28bzip2/lzma: move CONFIG_RD_* options under CONFIG_EMBEDDEDH. Peter Anvin
Impact: reduce Kconfig noise Move the options that control possible initramfs/initrd compressions underneath CONFIG_EMBEDDED. The only impact of leaving these options set to y is additional code in the init section of the kernel; there is no reason to burden non-embedded users with these options. Signed-off-by: H.

2009-02-19bzip2/lzma: make internal initramfs compression configurableAlain Knaff
Impact: Avoids silent environment dependency Make builtin initramfs compression an explicit configurable. The previous version would pick a compression based on the binaries which were installed on the system, which could lead to unexpected results. It is now explicitly configured, and not having the appropriate binaries installed on the build host is simply an error. Signed-off-by: Alain Knaff <alain@knaff.lu> Signed-off-by: H.

2009-01-07bzip2/lzma: move initrd/ramfs options out of BLK_DEVH. Peter Anvin
Impact: Partial resolution of build failure Move the initrd/initramfs configuration options from drivers/block/Kconfig to usr/Kconfig, since they do not and should not depend on CONFIG_BLK_DEV. This fixes builds when CONFIG_BLK_DEV=n. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>

2005-08-10kconfig: move initramfs options to General SetupSam Ravnborg
Move initramfs options from Device Drivers | Block Drivers to General Setup This is a more natural place for this option. Furthermore separate out intramfs options to usr/Kconfig Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
