8 years agokbuild, deb-pkg: support overriding userland architecture
Asbjoern Sloth Toennesen [Sun, 12 Dec 2010 17:39:40 +0000]
kbuild, deb-pkg: support overriding userland architecture

Usefull if building for sparc64 userland, because the
sparc and sparc64 userlands use the same 64-bit kernel,
making it impossible to always select the correct userland
architecture for the resulting debian package.

Might also be usefull, if you want a i386 userland with a amd64 kernel.

Example usage:
make KBUILD_DEBARCH=i386 deb-pkg

8 years agokbuild, deb-pkg: select userland architecture based on UTS_MACHINE
Asbjoern Sloth Toennesen [Fri, 5 Nov 2010 13:30:08 +0000]
kbuild, deb-pkg: select userland architecture based on UTS_MACHINE

Instead of creating the debian package for the compiling userland,
create it for a userland matching the kernel thats being compiled.

This patch supports all Lenny release architectures,
and Linux-based architecture candidates for Squeeze.

If it can't find a proper Debian userspace it displays a warning,
and fallback to let deb-gencontrol use the host's userspace arch.

Eg. with this patch the following make command:

make ARCH=i386 deb-pkg

will output an i386 Debian package instead of an amd64 one,
when run on an amd64 machine.

Usage:
  Press <Z> to show all config symbols which have prompts.

Quote Tim Bird:

| I've been bitten by this numerous times.  I most often
| use ftrace on ARM, but when I go back to x86, I almost
| always go through a sequence of searching for the
| function graph tracer in the menus, then realizing it's
| completely missing until I disable CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE.
|
| Is there any way to have the menu item appear, but be
| unsettable unless the SIZE option is disabled?  I'm
| not a Kconfig guru...

I myself found this useful too. For example, I need to test
ftrace/tracing and want to be sure all the tracing features are
enabled, so I  enter the "Tracers" menu, and press <Z> to
see if there is any config hidden.

I also noticed gconfig and xconfig have a button "Show all options",
but that's a bit too much, and I think normally what we are not
interested in those configs which have no prompt thus can't be
changed by users.

Exmaple:

      --- Tracers
      -*-   Kernel Function Tracer
      - -     Kernel Function Graph Tracer
      [*]   Interrupts-off Latency Tracer
      - -   Preemption-off Latency Tracer
      [*]   Sysprof Tracer

Here you can see 2 tracers are not selectable, and then can find
out how to make them selectable.

Minor perlcritic warning:
headerdep.pl: "return" statement with explicit "undef" at line 84, column 2.  See page 199 of PBP.  (Severity: 5)

The rationale according to PBP is that an explicit return of undef
(contrary to most people's expectations) doesn't
always evaluate as false. It has to with the fact that perl return value
depends on context the function is called. If function is used in
list context, the appropriate return value for false is an empty list;
whereas in scalar context the return value for false is undefined.
By just using a "return" both cases are handled.

In the context of a trivial script this doesn't matter. But one script
may be cut-paste into later code (most people like me only know 50%
of perl), that is why perlcritic always complains

tags: include headers before source files

Currently looking up a structure definition in TAGS / tags takes one to
one of multiple "static struct X" definitions in arch sources, which makes
it for many structs practically impossible to get to the required header.
This patch changes the order of sources being tagged to first scan
architecture includes, then the top-level include/ directory, and only
then the rest. It also takes into account, that many architectures have
more than one include directory, i.e., not only arch/$ARCH/include, but
also arch/$ARCH/mach-X/include etc.

kbuild: move -fno-dwarf2-cfi-asm to powerpc only

Better dwarf2 unwind information is a good thing, it allows better
debugging with kgdb and crash and helps systemtap.

Commit 003086497f07f7f1e67c0c295e261740f822b377 ("Build with
-fno-dwarf2-cfi-asm") disabled some CFI information globally to work
around a module loader bug on powerpc.

But this disables the better unwind tables for all architectures, not just
powerpc.  Move the workaround to powerpc and also add a suitable comment
that's it really a workaround.

This improves dwarf2 unwind tables on x86 at least.

9 years agoscripts: change scripts to use system python instead of env

scripts: change scripts to use system python instead of env

Just a small change to a couple of scripts to go from

 #!/usr/bin/env python

to

 #!/usr/bin/python

This shouldn't effect anyone, unless they don't install python there.

In preparation for python3, Fedora is doing a big push to change the scripts
to use the system python.  This allows developers to put the python3 in
their path without fear of breaking existing scripts.

Now I am pretty sure anyone using python3 for testing purposes will probably
not run any of the scripts I changed, but Fedora has this automated tool
that checks for this stuff so I thought I would try to push it upstream.

9 years agoImprove kconfig symbol hashing
Andi Kleen [Wed, 13 Jan 2010 16:02:44 +0000]
Improve kconfig symbol hashing

While looking for something else I noticed that the symbol
hash function used by kconfig is quite poor. It doesn't
use any of the standard hash techniques but simply
adds up the string and then uses power of two masking,
which is both known to perform poorly.

The current x86 kconfig has over 7000 symbols.

When I instrumented it showed that the minimum hash chain
length was 16 and a significant number of them was over
30.

It didn't help that the hash table size was only 256 buckets.

This patch increases the hash table size to a larger prime
and switches to a FNV32 hash. I played around with a couple of hash
functions, but that one seemed to perform best with reasonable
hash table sizes.

Increasing the hash table size even further didn't
seem like a good idea, because there are a couple of global
walks which walk the complete hash table.

I also moved the unnamed bucket to 0. It's still the longest
of all the buckets (44 entries), but hopefully it's not
often hit except for the global walk which doesn't care.

The result is a much nicer distribution:
(first column bucket length, second number of buckets with that length)

1: 3505
2: 1236
3: 294
4: 52
5: 3
47: 1 <--- this is the unnamed symbols bucket

There are still some 5+ buckets, but increasing the hash table
even more would be likely not worth it.

This also cleans up the code slightly by removing hard coded
magic numbers.

9 years agokbuild: improve version string logic
David Rientjes [Wed, 13 Jan 2010 21:01:05 +0000]
kbuild: improve version string logic

The LOCALVERSION= string passed to "make" will now always be appended to
the kernel version after CONFIG_LOCALVERSION, if it exists, regardless of
whether CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is set or not.  This allows users to
uniquely identify their kernel builds with a string.

If CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is enabled, the unique SCM tag reported by
setlocalversion (or .scmversion) is appended to the kernel version, if it
exists.  When CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not enabled, a `+' is appended
to the kernel version to represent that the kernel has been revised since
the last release unless "make LOCALVERSION=" was used to uniquely identify
the build.

The end result is this:

 - when LOCALVERSION= is passed to "make", it is appended to the kernel
   version,

 - when CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is enabled, a unique SCM identifier is
   appended if the respository has been revised beyond a tagged commit,
   and

 - when CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is disabled, a `+' is appended if the
   repository has been revised beyond a tagged commit and LOCALVERSION=
   was not passed to "make".

Examples:

With CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO: "make" results in
v2.6.32-rc4-00149-ga3ccf63.  If there are uncommited changes to the
respository, it results in v2.6.32-rc4-00149-ga3ccf63-dirty.  If
"make LOCALVERSION=kbuild" were used, it results in
v2.6.32-rc4-kbuild-00149-ga3ccf63-dirty.

Without CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO, "make" results in v2.6.32-rc4+
unless the repository is at the Linux v2.6.32-rc4 commit (in which
case the version would be v2.6.32-rc4).  If "make LOCALVERSION=kbuild"
were used, it results in v2.6.32-rc4-kbuild.

Also renames variables such as localver-auto and _localver-auto to more
accurately describe what they represent: localver-extra and
scm-identifier, respectively.

Help text for certain config options is very extensive (the text

This patch adds support for decoding ARM oopses to scripts/decodecode.
The following things are handled:

 - The Code: in x86 oopses is in bytes, while it is in either words (4
   bytes) or halfwords for ARM.

 - Some versions of ARM objdump refuse to disassemble instructions
   generated by literal constants (".word 0x...").  The workaround is to
   strip the object file first.

 - The faulting instruction is marked (liked so) in ARM, but <like so>
   in x86.

 - ARM mnemonics may include characters such as [] which need to be
   escaped before being passed to sed for the "<- trapping instruction"
   substitution.

9 years agokconfig CROSS_COMPILE option
Roland McGrath [Tue, 22 Dec 2009 00:24:06 +0000]
kconfig CROSS_COMPILE option

This adds CROSS_COMPILE as a kconfig string so you can store it in
.config.  Then you can use plain "make" in the configured kernel build
directory to do the right cross compilation without setting the
command-line or environment variable every time.

With this, you can set up different build directories for different kernel
configurations, whether native or cross-builds, and then use the simple:

make -C /build/dir M=module-source-dir

idiom to build modules for any given target kernel, indicating which one
by nothing but the build directory chosen.

I tried a version that defaults the string with env="CROSS_COMPILE" so
that in a "make oldconfig" with CROSS_COMPILE in the environment you can
just hit return to store the way you're building it.  But the kconfig
prompt for strings doesn't give you any way to say you want an empty
string instead of the default, so I punted that.

9 years agomm: fix migratetype bug which slowed swapping
Hugh Dickins [Fri, 29 Jan 2010 17:46:34 +0000]
mm: fix migratetype bug which slowed swapping

After memory pressure has forced it to dip into the reserves, 2.6.32's
5f8dcc21211a3d4e3a7a5ca366b469fb88117f61 "page-allocator: split per-cpu
list into one-list-per-migrate-type" has been returning MIGRATE_RESERVE
pages to the MIGRATE_MOVABLE free_list: in some sense depleting reserves.

Fix that in the most straightforward way (which, considering the overheads
of alternative approaches, is Mel's preference): the right migratetype is
already in page_private(page), but free_pcppages_bulk() wasn't using it.

How did this bug show up?  As a 20% slowdown in my tmpfs loop kbuild
swapping tests, on PowerMac G5 with SLUB allocator.  Bisecting to that
commit was easy, but explaining the magnitude of the slowdown not easy.

The same effect appears, but much less markedly, with SLAB, and even
less markedly on other machines (the PowerMac divides into fewer zones
than x86, I think that may be a factor).  We guess that lumpy reclaim
of short-lived high-order pages is implicated in some way, and probably
this bug has been tickling a poor decision somewhere in page reclaim.

But instrumentation hasn't told me much, I've run out of time and
imagination to determine exactly what's going on, and shouldn't hold up
the fix any longer: it's valid, and might even fix other misbehaviours.

9 years agoSplit 'flush_old_exec' into two functions
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 29 Jan 2010 06:14:42 +0000]
Split 'flush_old_exec' into two functions

'flush_old_exec()' is the point of no return when doing an execve(), and
it is pretty badly misnamed.  It doesn't just flush the old executable
environment, it also starts up the new one.

Which is very inconvenient for things like setting up the new
personality, because we want the new personality to affect the starting
of the new environment, but at the same time we do _not_ want the new
personality to take effect if flushing the old one fails.

As a result, the x86-64 '32-bit' personality is actually done using this
insane "I'm going to change the ABI, but I haven't done it yet" bit
(TIF_ABI_PENDING), with SET_PERSONALITY() not actually setting the
personality, but just the "pending" bit, so that "flush_thread()" can do
the actual personality magic.

This patch in no way changes any of that insanity, but it does split the
'flush_old_exec()' function up into a preparatory part that can fail
(still called flush_old_exec()), and a new part that will actually set
up the new exec environment (setup_new_exec()).  All callers are changed
to trivially comply with the new world order.
