      kbuild: check uniqueness of module names · 3a48a919
      Masahiro Yamada authored
      In the recent build test of linux-next, Stephen saw a build error
      caused by a broken .tmp_versions/*.mod file:
      drivers/net/phy/asix.ko and drivers/net/usb/asix.ko have the same
      basename, and there is a race in generating .tmp_versions/asix.mod
      Kbuild has not checked this before, and it suddenly shows up with
      obscure error messages when this kind of race occurs.
      Non-unique module names cause various sort of problems, but it is
      not trivial to catch them by eyes.
      Hence, this script.
      It checks not only real modules, but also built-in modules (i.e.
      controlled by tristate CONFIG option, but currently compiled with =y).
      Non-unique names for built-in modules also cause problems because
      /sys/modules/ would fall over.
      For the latest kernel, I tested "make allmodconfig all" (or more
      quickly "make allyesconfig modules"), and it detected the following:
      warning: same basename if the following are built as modules:

      kbuild: turn auto.conf.cmd into a mandatory include file · d2f8ae0e
      Masahiro Yamada authored
      syncconfig is responsible for keeping auto.conf up-to-date, so if it
      fails for any reason, the build must be terminated immediately.
      However, since commit 9390dff6 ("kbuild: invoke syncconfig if
      include/config/auto.conf.cmd is missing"), Kbuild continues running
      even after syncconfig fails.
      You can confirm this by intentionally making syncconfig error out:
        diff --git a/scripts/kconfig/confdata.c b/scripts/kconfig/confdata.c
        index 08ba146..307b9de 100644
        --- a/scripts/kconfig/confdata.c
        +++ b/scripts/kconfig/confdata.c
        @@ -1023,6 +1023,9 @@ int conf_write_autoconf(int overwrite)
                FILE *out, *tristate, *out_h;

        +       if (overwrite)
        +               return 1;
                if (!overwrite && is_present(autoconf_name))
                        return 0;
      Then, syncconfig fails, but Make would not stop:
        $ make -s mrproper allyesconfig defconfig
        $ make
        scripts/kconfig/conf  --syncconfig Kconfig

          SYSTBL  arch/x86/include/generated/asm/syscalls_64.h
        [ continue running ... ]
      The reason is in the behavior of a pattern rule with multi-targets.
        %/auto.conf %/auto.conf.cmd %/tristate.conf: $(KCONFIG_CONFIG)
                $(Q)$(MAKE) -f $(srctree)/Makefile syncconfig
      GNU Make knows this rule is responsible for making all the three files
      simultaneously. As far as examined, auto.conf.cmd is the target in
      question when this rule is invoked. It is probably because auto.conf.cmd
      is included below the inclusion of auto.conf.
      The inclusion of auto.conf is mandatory, while that of auto.conf.cmd
      is optional. GNU Make does not care about the failure in the process
      of updating optional include files.
      I filed this issue (https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?56301) in case this
      behavior could be improved somehow in future releases of GNU Make.
      Anyway, it is quite easy to fix our Makefile.
      Given that auto.conf is already a mandatory include file, there is no
      reason to stick auto.conf.cmd optional. Make it mandatory as well.

      moduleparam: Save information about built-in modules in separate file · 898490c0
      Alexey Gladkov authored
      When a kernel module is compiled as a separate module, some important
      information about the kernel module is available via .modinfo section of
      the module.  In contrast, when the kernel module is compiled into the
      kernel, that information is not available.
      Information about built-in modules is necessary in the following cases:
      1. When it is necessary to find out what additional parameters can be
      passed to the kernel at boot time.
      2. When you need to know which module names and their aliases are in
      the kernel. This is very useful for creating an initrd image.
      The proposed patch does not remove .modinfo section with module
      information from the vmlinux at the build time and saves it into a
      separate file after kernel linking. So, the kernel does not increase in
      size and no additional information remains in it. Information is stored
      in the same format as in the separate modules (null-terminated string
      array). Because the .modinfo section is already exported with a separate
      modules, we are not creating a new API.
      It can be easily read in the userspace:
      $ tr '\0' '\n' < modules.builtin.modinfo
      ext4.softdep=pre: crc32c
      ext4.description=Fourth Extended Filesystem

      security: Implement Clang's stack initialization · 709a972e
      Kees Cook authored
      CONFIG_INIT_STACK_ALL turns on stack initialization based on
      -ftrivial-auto-var-init in Clang builds, which has greater coverage
      -ftrivial-auto-var-init Clang option provides trivial initializers for
      uninitialized local variables, variable fields and padding.
      It has three possible values:
        pattern - uninitialized locals are filled with a fixed pattern
          (mostly 0xAA on 64-bit platforms, see https://reviews.llvm.org/D54604
          for more details, but 0x000000AA for 32-bit pointers) likely to cause
          crashes when uninitialized value is used;
        zero (it's still debated whether this flag makes it to the official
          Clang release) - uninitialized locals are filled with zeroes;
        uninitialized (default) - uninitialized locals are left intact.
      This patch uses only the "pattern" mode when CONFIG_INIT_STACK_ALL is
      Developers have the possibility to opt-out of this feature on a
      per-variable basis by using __attribute__((uninitialized)), but such
      use should be well justified in comments.

      kbuild: add ability to generate BTF type info for vmlinux · e83b9f55
      Andrii Nakryiko authored
      This patch adds new config option to trigger generation of BTF type
      information from DWARF debuginfo for vmlinux and kernel modules through
      pahole, which in turn relies on libbpf for btf_dedup() algorithm.
      The intent is to record compact type information of all types used
      inside kernel, including all the structs/unions/typedefs/etc. This
      enables BPF's compile-once-run-everywhere ([0]) approach, in which
      tracing programs that are inspecting kernel's internal data (e.g.,
      struct task_struct) can be compiled on a system running some kernel
      version, but would be possible to run on other kernel versions (and
      configurations) without recompilation, even if the layout of structs
      changed and/or some of the fields were added, removed, or renamed.
      This is only possible if BPF loader can get kernel type info to adjust
      all the offsets correctly. This patch is a first time in this direction,
      making sure that BTF type info is part of Linux kernel image in
      non-loadable ELF section.
      BTF deduplication ([1]) algorithm typically provides 100x savings
      compared to DWARF data, so resulting .BTF section is not big as is
      typically about 2MB in size.

      kbuild: use $(srctree) instead of KBUILD_SRC to check out-of-tree build · a9a49c2a
      Masahiro Yamada authored
      KBUILD_SRC was conventionally used for some different purposes:
       [1] To remember the source tree path
       [2] As a flag to check if sub-make is already done
       [3] As a flag to check if Kbuild runs out of tree
      For [1], we do not need to remember it because the top Makefile
      can compute it by $(realpath $(dir $(lastword $(MAKEFILE_LIST))))
      [2] has been replaced with self-commenting 'sub_make_done'.
      For [3], we can distinguish in-tree/out-of-tree by comparing
      $(srctree) and '.'
      This commit converts [3] to prepare for the KBUILD_SRC removal.

      kbuild: allow Kbuild to start from any directory · 25b146c5
      Masahiro Yamada authored
      Kbuild always runs in the top of the output directory.
      If Make starts in the source directory with O=, it relocates the
      working directory to the location specified by O=.
      Also, users can start build from the output directory by using the
      Makefile generated by scripts/mkmakefile.
      With a little more effort, Kbuild will be able to start from any
      directory path.
      This commit allows to specify the source directory by using
      the -f option.
      For example, you can do:
        $ cd path/to/output/dir
        $ make -f path/to/source/dir/Makefile
      Or, for the equivalent behavior, you can do:
        $ make O=path/to/output/dir -f path/to/source/dir/Makefile
      KBUILD_SRC is now deprecated.
