      License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license · b2441318
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      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
      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.

      Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer · d7627467
      David Howells authored
      Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer so that kernel_execve() compiles
      correctly on ARM:
      arch/arm/kernel/sys_arm.c:88: warning: passing argument 1 of 'do_execve' discards qualifiers from pointer target type
      This also requires the argv and envp arguments to be consted twice, once for
      the pointer array and once for the strings the array points to.  This is
      because do_execve() passes a pointer to the filename (now const) to
      copy_strings_kernel().  A simpler alternative would be to cast the filename
      pointer in do_execve() when it's passed to copy_strings_kernel().
      do_execve() may not change any of the strings it is passed as part of the argv
      or envp lists as they are some of them in .rodata, so marking these strings as
      const should be fine.
      Further kernel_execve() and sys_execve() need to be changed to match.
      This has been test built on x86_64, frv, arm and mips.

      Add generic sys_ipc wrapper · baed7fc9
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Add a generic implementation of the ipc demultiplexer syscall.  Except for
      s390 and sparc64 all implementations of the sys_ipc are nearly identical.
      There are slight differences in the types of the parameters, where mips
      and powerpc as the only 64-bit architectures with sys_ipc use unsigned
      long for the "third" argument as it gets casted to a pointer later, while
      it traditionally is an "int" like most other paramters.  frv goes even
      further and uses unsigned long for all parameters execept for "ptr" which
      is a pointer type everywhere.  The change from int to unsigned long for
      "third" and back to "int" for the others on frv should be fine due to the
      in-register calling conventions for syscalls (we already had a similar
      issue with the generic sys_ptrace), but I'd prefer to have the arch
      maintainers looks over this in details.
      Except for that h8300, m68k and m68knommu lack an impplementation of the
      semtimedop sub call which this patch adds, and various architectures have
      gets used - at least on i386 it seems superflous as the compat code on
      x86-64 and ia64 doesn't even bother to implement it.

      While doing some easy cleanups on the sparc code I noticed that the

      "I don't know how it should work, but the current code definitely cannot
      work." places.
      And while I have seen people running Linux on machines like a
      SPARCstation 5 a few years ago I don't recall having seen sun4
      machines, even less ones running Linux.

      flag parameters: pipe · ed8cae8b
      Ulrich Drepper authored
      This patch introduces the new syscall pipe2 which is like pipe but it also
      takes an additional parameter which takes a flag value.  This patch implements
      the handling of O_CLOEXEC for the flag.  I did not add support for the new
      syscall for the architectures which have a special sys_pipe implementation.  I
      think the maintainers of those archs have the chance to go with the unified
      implementation but that's up to them.
      The implementation introduces do_pipe_flags.  I did that instead of changing
      all callers of do_pipe because some of the callers are written in assembler.
      I would probably screw up changing the assembly code.  To avoid breaking code
      do_pipe is now a small wrapper around do_pipe_flags.  Once all callers are
      changed over to do_pipe_flags the old do_pipe function can be removed.
      The following test must be adjusted for architectures other than x86 and
      x86-64 and in case the syscall numbers changed.

        int fd[2];
        if (syscall (__NR_pipe2, fd, 0) != 0)
            puts ("pipe2(0) failed");
            return 1;

      sparc: Remove old style signal frame support. · 5526b7e4
      David S. Miller authored
      Back around the same time we were bootstrapping the first 32-bit sparc
      Linux kernel with a SunOS userland, we made the signal frame match
      that of SunOS.
      By the time we even started putting together a native Linux userland
      for 32-bit Sparc we realized this layout wasn't sufficient for Linux's
      Therefore we changed the layout, yet kept support for the old style
      signal frame layout in there.  The detection mechanism is that we had
      sys_sigaction() start passing in a negative signal number to indicate
      "new style signal frames please".
      Anyways, no binaries exist in the world that use the old stuff.  In
      fact, I bet Jakub Jelinek and myself are the only two people who ever
      had such binaries to be honest.
      So let's get rid of this stuff.
      I added an assertion using WARN_ON_ONCE() that makes sure 32-bit
      applications are passing in that negative signal number still.

      [PATCH] provide kernel_execve on all architectures · fe74290d
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      This adds the new kernel_execve function on all architectures that were using
      _syscall3() to implement execve.
      The implementation uses code from the _syscall3 macros provided in the
      unistd.h header file.  I don't have cross-compilers for any of these
      architectures, so the patch is untested with the exception of i386.
      Most architectures can probably implement this in a nicer way in assembly or
      by combining it with the sys_execve implementation itself, but this should do
      it for now.

      [PATCH] namespaces: utsname: switch to using uts namespaces · e9ff3990
      Serge E. Hallyn authored
      Replace references to system_utsname to the per-process uts namespace
      where appropriate.  This includes things like uname.
      Changes: Per Eric Biederman's comments, use the per-process uts namespace
      	for ELF_PLATFORM, sunrpc, and parts of net/ipv4/ipconfig.c

      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!
