      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.

      modpost: Optionally ignore secondary errors seen if a single module build fails · eed380f3
      Guenter Roeck authored
      Commit ea4054a2 (modpost: handle huge numbers of modules) added
      support for building a large number of modules.
      Unfortunately, the commit changed the semantics of the makefile: Instead of
      passing only existing object files to modpost, make now passes all expected
      object files. If make was started with option -i, this results in a modpost
      error if a single file failed to build.
      Example with the current btrfs build falure on m68k:
      fs/btrfs/btrfs.o: No such file or directory
      make[1]: [__modpost] Error 1 (ignored)
      This error is followed by lots of errors such as:
      m68k-linux-gcc: error: arch/m68k/emu/nfcon.mod.c: No such file or directory
      m68k-linux-gcc: fatal error: no input files
      compilation terminated.
      make[1]: [arch/m68k/emu/nfcon.mod.o] Error 1 (ignored)
      This doesn't matter much for normal builds, but it is annoying for builds
      started with "make -i" due to the large number of secondary errors.
      Those errors unnececessarily clog any error log and make it difficult
      to find the real errors in the build.
      Fix the problem by adding a new parameter '-n' to modpost. If this parameter
      is specified, modpost reports but ignores missing object files.
      With this patch, error output from above problem is (with make -i):
      m68k-linux-ld: cannot find fs/btrfs/ioctl.o: No such file or directory
      make[2]: [fs/btrfs/btrfs.o] Error 1 (ignored)
      fs/btrfs/btrfs.o: No such file or directory (ignored)

      MODSIGN: Sign modules during the build process · 80d65e58
      David Howells authored
      If CONFIG_MODULE_SIG is set, then this patch will cause all modules files to
      to have signatures added.  The following steps will occur:
       (1) The module will be linked to foo.ko.unsigned instead of foo.ko
       (2) The module will be stripped using both "strip -x -g" and "eu-strip" to
           ensure minimal size for inclusion in an initramfs.
       (3) The signature will be generated on the stripped module.
       (4) The signature will be appended to the module, along with some information
           about the signature and a magic string that indicates the presence of the
      Step (3) requires private and public keys to be available.  By default these
      are expected to be found in files:
      in the base directory of the build.  The first is the private key in PEM form
      and the second is the X.509 certificate in DER form as can be generated from
      	openssl req \
      		-new -x509 -outform PEM -out signing_key.x509 \
      		-keyout signing_key.priv -nodes \
      		-subj "/CN=H2G2/O=Magrathea/CN=Slartibartfast"
      If the secret key is not found then signing will be skipped and the unsigned
      module from (1) will just be copied to foo.ko.
      If signing occurs, lines like the following will be seen:
      	LD [M]  fs/foo/foo.ko.unsigned
      	STRIP [M] fs/foo/foo.ko.stripped
      	SIGN [M] fs/foo/foo.ko
      will appear in the build log.  If the signature step will be skipped and the
      following will be seen:
      	LD [M]  fs/foo/foo.ko.unsigned
      	STRIP [M] fs/foo/foo.ko.stripped
      	NO SIGN [M] fs/foo/foo.ko
      NOTE!  After the signature step, the signed module _must_not_ be passed through
      strip.  The unstripped, unsigned module is still available at the name on the
      LD [M] line.  This restriction may affect packaging tools (such as rpmbuild)
      and initramfs composition tools.

      scripts/Makefile.modpost: error in finding modules from .mod files. · ef591a55
      이건호 authored
      This error may happen when the user's id or path includes .ko string.
      For example, user's id is xxx.ko and building test.ko module,
      the test.mod file lists ko name and all object files.
      /home/xxx.ko/kernel_dev/device/drivers/test_io.o ...
      Current Makefile.modpost and Makefile.modinst find and list up not
      only test.ko but also other object files.
      because all of object file's path includes .ko string.
      This is a patch to fix it.

      kbuild: allow assignment to {A,C,LD}FLAGS_MODULE on the command line · 6588169d
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      It is now possible to assign options to AS, CC and LD
      on the command line - which is only used when building modules.
      {A,C,LD}FLAGS_MODULE was all used both in the top-level Makefile
      in the arch makefiles, thus users had no way to specify
      additional options to AS, CC, LD when building modules
      without overriding the original value.
      Introduce a new set of variables KBUILD_{A,C,LD}FLAGS_MODULE
      that is used by arch specific files and free up
      {A,C,LD}FLAGS_MODULE so they can be assigned on
      the command line.
      All arch Makefiles that used the old variables has been updated.
      Note: Previously we had a MODFLAGS variable for both
      AS and CC. But in favour of consistency this was dropped.
      So in some cases arch Makefile has one assignmnet replaced by
      two assignmnets.
      Note2: MODFLAGS was not documented and is dropped
      without any notice. I do not expect much/any breakage
      from this.

      markers: fix duplicate modpost entry · d35cb360
      Mathieu Desnoyers authored
      When a kernel was rebuilt, the previous Module.markers was not cleared.
      It caused markers with different format strings to appear as duplicates

      kbuild: fix $(src) assignmnet with external modules · 96d97f26
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      When we introduced support for KBUILD_EXTRA_SYMBOLS
      we started to include the externam module's kbuild
      file when doing the final modpost step.
      As external modules often do:
      ccflags-y := -I$(src)
      We had problems because $(src) was unassinged and
      gcc then used the next parameter for -I resulting in
      strange build failures.
      Fix is to assign $(src) and $(obj) when building
      external modules.

      Linux Kernel Markers: create modpost file · b2e3e658
      Mathieu Desnoyers authored
      This adds some new magic in the MODPOST phase for CONFIG_MARKERS.  Analogous
      to the Module.symvers file, the build will now write a Module.markers file
      when CONFIG_MARKERS=y is set.  This file lists the name, defining module, and
      format string of each marker, separated by \t characters.  This simple text
      file can be used by offline build procedures for instrumentation code,
      analogous to how System.map and Module.symvers can be useful to have for
      kernels other than the one you are running right now.
      The strings are made easy to extract by having the __trace_mark macro define
      the name and format together in a single array called __mstrtab_* in the
      __markers_strings section.  This is straightforward and reliable as long as
      the marker structs are always defined by this macro.  It is an unreasonable
      amount of hairy work to extract the string pointers from the __markers section
      structs, which entails handling a relocation type for every machine under the

      kbuild: add verbose option to Section mismatch reporting in modpost · 588ccd73
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      If the config option CONFIG_SECTION_MISMATCH is not set and
      we see a Section mismatch present the following to the user:
      modpost: Found 1 section mismatch(es).
      To see additional details select "Enable full Section mismatch analysis"
      in the Kernel Hacking menu (CONFIG_SECTION_MISMATCH).
      If the option CONFIG_SECTION_MISMATCH is selected
      then be verbose in the Section mismatch reporting from mdopost.
      Sample outputs:
      WARNING: o-x86_64/vmlinux.o(.text+0x7396): Section mismatch in reference from the function discover_ebda() to the variable .init.data:ebda_addr
      The function  discover_ebda() references
      the variable __initdata ebda_addr.
      This is often because discover_ebda lacks a __initdata
      annotation or the annotation of ebda_addr is wrong.
      WARNING: o-x86_64/vmlinux.o(.data+0x74d58): Section mismatch in reference from the variable pci_serial_quirks to the function .devexit.text:pci_plx9050_exit()
      The variable pci_serial_quirks references
      the function __devexit pci_plx9050_exit()
      If the reference is valid then annotate the

      kbuild: do section mismatch check on full vmlinux · 741f98fe
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      Previously we did do the check on the .o files used to link
      vmlinux but that failed to find questionable references across
      the .o files.
      Create a dedicated vmlinux.o file used only for section mismatch checks
      that uses the defualt linker script so section does not get renamed.
      The vmlinux.o may later be used as part of the the final link of vmlinux
      but for now it is used fo section mismatch only.
      For a defconfig build this is instant but for an allyesconfig this
      add two minutes to a full build (that anyways takes ~2 hours).

      kbuild: make modpost processing configurable · ea837f1c
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      On request from Al Viro make modpost processing configurable.
      KBUILD_MODPOST_WARN can be set to make modpost warn instead of
      error out in case on unresolved symbols in final module link.
      KBUILD_MODPOST_NOFINAL can be set to avoid the final and timeconsuming
      .c file generation and link of .ko files. This is solely useful for
      speeding up when doing compile checks with for example allmodconfig

      kbuild: fix ia64 breakage after introducing make -rR · 5e8d780d
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      kbuild used $¤(*F to get filename of target without extension.
      This was used in several places all over kbuild, but introducing
      make -rR broke his for all cases where we specified full path to
      target/prerequsite. It is assumed that make -rR disables old style
      suffix-rules which is why is suddenly failed.
      ia64 was impacted by this change because several div* routines in
      arch/ia64/lib are build using explicit paths and then kbuild failed.
      Thanks to David Mosberger-Tang <David.Mosberger@acm.org> for an explanation
      what was the root-cause and for testing on ia64.
      This patch also fixes two uses of $(*F) in arch/um

      This reverts commit e5c44fd8.
      Thanks to Daniel Ritz and Michal Piotrowski for noticing the problem.
      Daniel says:
        "[The] reason is a recent change that made modules always shows as
         module.mod.  it breaks modprobe and probably many scripts..besides
         lsmod looking horrible
         stuff like this in modprobe.conf:
              install pcmcia_core /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install pcmcia_core; /sbin/modprobe pcmcia
         makes modprobe fork/exec endlessly calling itself...until oom
         interrupts it"

      kbuild: fix make -rR breakage · e5c44fd8
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      make failed to supply the filename when using make -rR and using $(*F)
      to get target filename without extension.
      This bug was not reproduceable in small scale but using:
      $(basename $(notdir $@)) fixes it with same functionality.

      kconfig: fix .config dependencies · c955ccaf
      Roman Zippel authored
      This fixes one of the worst kbuild warts left - the broken dependencies used
      to check and regenerate the .config file.  This was done via an indirect
      dependency and the .config itself had an empty command, which can cause make
      not to reread the changed .config file.
      Instead of this we generate now a new file include/config/auto.conf from
      .config, which is used for kbuild and has the proper dependencies.  It's also
      the main make target now for all files generated during this step (and thus
      replaces include/linux/autoconf.h).
      This also means we can now relax the syntax requirements for the .config file
      and we don't have to rewrite it all the time, i.e.  silentoldconfig only
      writes .config now when it's necessary to keep it in sync with the Kconfig
      files and even this can be suppressed by setting the environment variable
      KCONFIG_NOSILENTUPDATE, so the update can (and must) be done manually.

      kbuild: improved modversioning support for external modules · 040fcc81
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      With following patch a second option is enabled to obtain
      symbol information from a second external module when a
      external module is build.
      The recommended approach is to use a common kbuild file but
      that may be impractical in certain cases.
      With this patch one can copy over a Module.symvers from one
      external module to make symbols (and symbol versions) available
      for another external module.
      Updated documentation in Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt
