      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.

      perf kallsyms: Introduce tool to look for extended symbol information on the running kernel · 35563771
      Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo authored
      Its similar to doing grep on a /proc/kallsyms, but it also shows extra
      information like the path to the kernel module and the unrelocated
      addresses in it, to help in diagnosing problems.
      It is also helps demonstrate the use of the symbols routines so that
      tool writers can use them more effectively.

      tools: Introduce str_error_r() · c8b5f2c9
      Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo authored
      The tools so far have been using the strerror_r() GNU variant, that
      returns a string, be it the buffer passed or something else.
      But that, besides being tricky in cases where we expect that the
      function using strerror_r() returns the error formatted in a provided
      buffer (we have to check if it returned something else and copy that
      instead), breaks the build on systems not using glibc, like Alpine
      Linux, where musl libc is used.
      So, introduce yet another wrapper, str_error_r(), that has the GNU
      interface, but uses the portable XSI variant of strerror_r(), so that
      users rest asured that the provided buffer is used and it is what is

      perf tools: Use __maybe_used for unused variables · 1d037ca1
      Irina Tirdea authored
      perf defines both __used and __unused variables to use for marking
      unused variables. The variable __used is defined to
      __attribute__((__unused__)), which contradicts the kernel definition to
      __attribute__((__used__)) for new gcc versions. On Android, __used is
      also defined in system headers and this leads to warnings like: warning:
      '__used__' attribute ignored
      __unused is not defined in the kernel and is not a standard definition.
      If __unused is included everywhere instead of __used, this leads to
      conflicts with glibc headers, since glibc has a variables with this name
      in its headers.
      The best approach is to use __maybe_unused, the definition used in the
      kernel for __attribute__((unused)). In this way there is only one
      definition in perf sources (instead of 2 definitions that point to the
      same thing: __used and __unused) and it works on both Linux and Android.
      This patch simply replaces all instances of __used and __unused with

      perf: Fix endianness argument compatibility with OPT_BOOLEAN() and introduce OPT_INCR() · c0555642
      Ian Munsie authored
      Parsing an option from the command line with OPT_BOOLEAN on a
      bool data type would not work on a big-endian machine due to the
      manner in which the boolean was being cast into an int and
      incremented. For example, running 'perf probe --list' on a
      PowerPC machine would fail to properly set the list_events bool
      and would therefore print out the usage information and
      This patch makes OPT_BOOLEAN work as expected with a bool
      datatype. For cases where the original OPT_BOOLEAN was
      intentionally being used to increment an int each time it was
      passed in on the command line, this patch introduces OPT_INCR
      with the old behaviour of OPT_BOOLEAN (the verbose variable is
      currently the only such example of this).
      I have reviewed every use of OPT_BOOLEAN to verify that a true
      C99 bool was passed. Where integers were used, I verified that
      they were only being used for boolean logic and changed them to
      bools to ensure that they would not be mistakenly used as ints.
      The major exception was the verbose variable which now uses
      OPT_INCR instead of OPT_BOOLEAN.

      perf builds, in addition to the already enabled -Wall -Wextra
      -std=gnu99 warnings:
      And change/fix the perf code to build cleanly under GCC 4.3.2.
      The list of warnings enablement is rather arbitrary: it's based
      on my (quick) reading of the GCC manpages and trying them on
      I categorized the warnings based on individually enabling them
      and looking whether they trigger something in the perf build.
      If i liked those warnings (i.e. if they trigger for something
      that arguably could be improved) i enabled the warning.
      If the warnings seemed to come from language laywers spamming
      the build with tons of nuisance warnings i generally kept them
      off. Most of the sign conversion related warnings were in
      this category. (A second patch enabling some of the sign
      warnings might be welcome - sign bugs can be nasty.)
      I also kept warnings that seem to make sense from their manpage
      description and which produced no actual warnings on our code
      base. These warnings might still be turned off if they end up
      being a nuisance.
      I also left out a few warnings that are not supported in older
      [ Note that these changes might break the build on older
        compilers i did not test, or on non-x86 architectures that
        produce different warnings, so more testing would be welcome. ]
