11 years agokbuild: enable 'make CFLAGS=...' to add additional options to CC
Sam Ravnborg [Sun, 14 Oct 2007 20:21:35 +0000]
kbuild: enable 'make CFLAGS=...' to add additional options to CC

The variable CFLAGS is a wellknown variable and the usage by
kbuild may result in unexpected behaviour.
On top of that several people over time has asked for a way to
pass in additional flags to gcc.

This patch replace use of CFLAGS with KBUILD_CFLAGS all over the
tree and enabling one to use:
make CFLAGS=...
to specify additional gcc commandline options.

One usecase is when trying to find gcc bugs but other
use cases has been requested too.

Patch was tested on following architectures:
alpha, arm, i386, x86_64, mips, sparc, sparc64, ia64, m68k

Test was simple to do a defconfig build, apply the patch and check
that nothing got rebuild.

11 years agokconfig/menuconfig: distinguish between selected-by-another options and comments
Matej Laitl [Tue, 2 Oct 2007 20:46:50 +0000]
kconfig/menuconfig: distinguish between selected-by-another options and comments

menuconfig currently represents options implied by another option ('select'
directive in Kconfig) by prefixing them with '---'.  Unfortunately the same
notation is used for comments.  If the implied option is module capable,
user can still switch between Y and M, all without any feedback until she
visits option's help.  (try saying M to MAC80211 and then toggling
CFG80211)

This patch changes notation of selected-by-another items by introducing 2
new representations for implied options: {*} or {M} for options selected by
another modularized one, thus builtin or module capable, -*- or -M- for
options that cannot be at the moment changed by user.

The idea is to represent actual capability of the option by braces (dashes)
around and to always report actual state by * or M inside.

11 years agokbuild: call make once for all targets when O=.. is used
Milton Miller [Fri, 21 Sep 2007 23:09:02 +0000]
kbuild: call make once for all targets when O=.. is used

Change the invocations of make in the output directory Makefile and the
main Makefile for separate object trees to pass all goals to one $(MAKE)
via a new phony target "sub-make" and the existing target _all.

When compiling with separate object directories, a separate make is called
in the context of another directory (from the output directory the main
Makefile is called, the Makefile is then restarted with current directory
set to the object tree).  Before this patch, when multiple make command
goals are specified, each target results in a separate make invocation.
With make -j, these invocations may run in parallel, resulting in multiple
commands running in the same directory clobbering each others results.

I did not try to address make -j for mixed dot-config and no-dot-config
targets.  Because the order does matter, a solution was not obvious.
Perhaps a simple check for MAKEFLAGS having -j and refusing to run would
be appropriate.

To avoid having to look manually for used but undefined Kconfig variables,
I've written a script which tries do this efficiently, in case all other
attention fail.  It accounts for _MODULE suffix and for UML_ prefixes to
Kconfig variable, but otherwise looks for exact matches (i.e.  \<CONFIG_;
this is done to exclude macros like MMCONFIG_).

instance arch/i386/boot/ uses a bunch of undefined Kconfig vars:

$ scripts/checkunknowndefines.sh arch/i386/boot/
arch/i386/boot/video.h uses undefined symbol VIDEO_400_HACK
arch/i386/boot/video-vga.c uses undefined symbol VIDEO_400_HACK
arch/i386/boot/video.c uses undefined symbol VIDEO_RETAIN
arch/i386/boot/video.h uses undefined symbol VIDEO_RETAIN
arch/i386/boot/video.h uses undefined symbol VIDEO_SVGA
arch/i386/boot/video.h uses undefined symbol VIDEO_VESA
arch/i386/boot/video-vesa.c uses undefined symbol VIDEO_VESA

11 years agokbuild: check if we can link gettext not just compile
Sam Ravnborg [Sun, 12 Aug 2007 21:15:44 +0000]
kbuild: check if we can link gettext not just compile

cygwin provides the header file but the lib file needs
to be added manually. A generic fix is to check if
we can compile and link a program that uses gettext()
and if it fails fall back to NO_NLS.

International users of cygwin may have to specify
HOST_LOADLIBES := "-lintl" on the make command line.

[POWERPC] Add legacy serial support for OPB with flattened device tree

Currently find_legacy_serial_ports() can find no serial ports on the
OPB with flattened device tree.  Thus no legacy boot console can be
initialized.  Just the early udbg console works, which is initialized
with udbg_init_44x_as1 on the UART's physical address specified in
kernel config.  This happens because we look for ns16750 serial
devices only and expect opb node to have a device type property.  This
patch makes it look for ns16550-compatible devices and use
of_device_is_compatible() for opb in case device type is not
specified.

11 years ago[POWERPC] Use 1TB segments
Paul Mackerras [Thu, 11 Oct 2007 10:37:10 +0000]
[POWERPC] Use 1TB segments

This makes the kernel use 1TB segments for all kernel mappings and for
user addresses of 1TB and above, on machines which support them
(currently POWER5+, POWER6 and PA6T).

We detect that the machine supports 1TB segments by looking at the
ibm,processor-segment-sizes property in the device tree.

We don't currently use 1TB segments for user addresses < 1T, since
that would effectively prevent 32-bit processes from using huge pages
unless we also had a way to revert to using 256MB segments.  That
would be possible but would involve extra complications (such as
keeping track of which segment size was used when HPTEs were inserted)
and is not addressed here.

Parts of this patch were originally written by Ben Herrenschmidt.

[NET]: Fix NAPI completion handling in some drivers.

In order for the list handling in net_rx_action() to be
correct, drivers must follow certain rules as stated by
this comment in net_rx_action():

/* Drivers must not modify the NAPI state if they
 * consume the entire weight.  In such cases this code
 * still "owns" the NAPI instance and therefore can
 * move the instance around on the list at-will.
 */

A few drivers do not do this because they mix the budget checks
with reading hardware state, resulting in crashes like the one
reported by takano@axe-inc.co.jp.

11 years ago[TCP]: Fix lost_retrans loop vs fastpath problems
Ilpo Järvinen [Fri, 12 Oct 2007 00:35:41 +0000]
[TCP]: Fix lost_retrans loop vs fastpath problems

Detection implemented with lost_retrans must work also when
fastpath is taken, yet most of the queue is skipped including
(very likely) those retransmitted skb's we're interested in.
This problem appeared when the hints got added, which removed
a need to always walk over the whole write queue head.
Therefore decicion for the lost_retrans worker loop entry must
be separated from the sacktag processing more than it was
necessary before.

It turns out to be problematic to optimize the worker loop
very heavily because ack_seqs of skb may have a number of
discontinuity points. Maybe similar approach as currently is
implemented could be attempted but that's becoming more and
more complex because the trend is towards less skb walking
in sacktag marker. Trying a simple work until all rexmitted
skbs heve been processed approach.

Maybe after(highest_sack_end_seq, tp->high_seq) checking is not
sufficiently accurate and causes entry too often in no-work-to-do
cases. Since that's not known, I've separated solution to that
from this patch.

Noticed because of report against a related problem from TAKANO
Ryousei <takano@axe-inc.co.jp>. He also provided a patch to
that part of the problem. This patch includes solution to it
(though this patch has to use somewhat different placement).
TAKANO's description and patch is available here:

  http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=119149311913288&w=2

...In short, TAKANO's problem is that end_seq the loop is using
not necessarily the largest SACK block's end_seq because the
current ACK may still have higher SACK blocks which are later
by the loop.

[TCP]: Add bytes_acked (ABC) clearing to FRTO too

I was reading tcp_enter_loss while looking for Cedric's bug and
noticed bytes_acked adjustment is missing from FRTO side.

Since bytes_acked will only be used in tcp_cong_avoid, I think
it's safe to assume RTO would be spurious. During FRTO cwnd
will be not controlled by tcp_cong_avoid and if FRTO calls for
conventional recovery, cwnd is adjusted and the result of wrong
assumption is cleared from bytes_acked. If RTO was in fact
spurious, we did normal ABC already and can continue without
any additional adjustments.
