      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      Audit: reorganize struct audit_watch to save 8 bytes · e08b061e
      Eric Paris authored
      pahole showed that struct audit_watch had two holes:
      struct audit_watch {
              atomic_t                   count;                /*     0     4 */
              /* XXX 4 bytes hole, try to pack */
              char *                     path;                 /*     8     8 */
              dev_t                      dev;                  /*    16     4 */
              /* XXX 4 bytes hole, try to pack */
              long unsigned int          ino;                  /*    24     8 */
              struct audit_parent *      parent;               /*    32     8 */
              struct list_head           wlist;                /*    40    16 */
              struct list_head           rules;                /*    56    16 */
              /* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) was 8 bytes ago --- */
              /* size: 72, cachelines: 2, members: 7 */
              /* sum members: 64, holes: 2, sum holes: 8 */
              /* last cacheline: 8 bytes */
      };      /* definitions: 1 */
      by moving dev after count we save 8 bytes,  actually improving cacheline
      usage.  There are typically very few of these in the kernel so it won't be
      a large savings, but it's a good thing no matter what.

      Audit: clean up all op= output to include string quoting · 9d960985
      Eric Paris authored
      A number of places in the audit system we send an op= followed by a string
      that includes spaces.  Somehow this works but it's just wrong.  This patch
      moves all of those that I could find to be quoted.

      Audit: move audit_get_nd completely into audit_watch · 35fe4d0b
      Eric Paris authored
      audit_get_nd() is only used  by audit_watch and could be more cleanly
      implemented by having the audit watch functions call it when needed rather
      than making the generic audit rule parsing code deal with those objects.

      audit: seperate audit inode watches into a subfile · cfcad62c
      Eric Paris authored
      In preparation for converting audit to use fsnotify instead of inotify we
      seperate the inode watching code into it's own file.  This is similar to
      how the audit tree watching code is already seperated into audit_tree.c
