#!/usr/bin/perl -w
#
#	namespace.pl.  Mon Aug 30 2004
#
#	Perform a name space analysis on the linux kernel.
#
#	Copyright Keith Owens <kaos@ocs.com.au>.  GPL.
#
#	Invoke by changing directory to the top of the kernel object
#	tree then namespace.pl, no parameters.
#
#	Tuned for 2.1.x kernels with the new module handling, it will
#	work with 2.0 kernels as well.
#
#	Last change 2.6.9-rc1, adding support for separate source and object
#	trees.
#
#	The source must be compiled/assembled first, the object files
#	are the primary input to this script.  Incomplete or missing
#	objects will result in a flawed analysis.  Compile both vmlinux
#	and modules.
#
#	Even with complete objects, treat the result of the analysis
#	with caution.  Some external references are only used by
#	certain architectures, others with certain combinations of
#	configuration parameters.  Ideally the source should include
#	something like
#
#	#ifndef CONFIG_...
#	static
#	#endif
#	symbol_definition;
#
#	so the symbols are defined as static unless a particular
#	CONFIG_... requires it to be external.
#
#	A symbol that is suffixed with '(export only)' has these properties
#
#	* It is global.
#	* It is marked EXPORT_SYMBOL or EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL, either in the same
#	  source file or a different source file.
#	* Given the current .config, nothing uses the symbol.
#
#	The symbol is a candidate for conversion to static, plus removal of the
#	export.  But be careful that a different .config might use the symbol.
#
#
#	Name space analysis and cleanup is an iterative process.  You cannot
#	expect to find all the problems in a single pass.
#
#	* Identify possibly unnecessary global declarations, verify that they
#	  really are unnecessary and change them to static.
#	* Compile and fix up gcc warnings about static, removing dead symbols
#	  as necessary.
#	* make clean and rebuild with different configs (especially
#	  CONFIG_MODULES=n) to see which symbols are being defined when the
#	  config does not require them.  These symbols bloat the kernel object
#	  for no good reason, which is frustrating for embedded systems.
#	* Wrap config sensitive symbols in #ifdef CONFIG_foo, as long as the
#	  code does not get too ugly.
#	* Repeat the name space analysis until you can live with with the
#	  result.
