2020-08-10kbuild: sort hostprogs before passing it to ifneqMasahiro Yamada
The conditional: ifneq ($(hostprogs),) ... is evaluated to true if $(hostprogs) does not contain any word but whitespace characters. ifneq ($(strip $(hostprogs)),) ... is a safe way to avoid interpreting whitespace as a non-empty value, but I'd rather want to use the side-effect of $(sort ...) to do the equivalent. $(sort ...) is used in scripts/ in order to drop duplication in $(hostprogs). It is also useful to strip excessive spaces. Move $(sort ...) before evaluating the ifneq. Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <>
2020-08-10kbuild: move host .so build rules to scripts/gcc-plugins/MakefileMasahiro Yamada
The host shared library rules are currently implemented in scripts/, but actually GCC-plugin is the only user of them. (The VDSO .so files are built for the target by different build rules) Hence, they do not need to be treewide available. Move all the relevant build rules to scripts/gcc-plugins/Makefile. I also optimized the build steps so *.so is directly built from .c because every upstream plugin is compiled from a single source file. I am still keeping the multi-file plugin support, which Kees Cook mentioned might be needed by out-of-tree plugins. ( If the plugin,, is compiled from two files foo.c and foo2.c, then you can do like follows: foo-objs := foo.o foo2.o Single-file plugins do not need the *-objs notation.

2020-05-12kbuild: use -MMD instead of -MD to exclude system headers from dependencyMasahiro Yamada
This omits system headers from the generated header dependency. System headers are not updated unless you upgrade the compiler. Nor do they contain CONFIG options, so fixdep does not need to parse them. Having said that, the effect of this optimization will be quite small because the kernel code generally does not include system headers except <stdarg.h>. Host programs include a lot of system headers, but there are not so many in the kernel tree. At first, keeping system headers in .*.cmd files might be useful to detect the compiler update, but there is no guarantee that <stdarg.h> is included from every file. So, I implemented a more reliable way in the previous commit. Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <>
2020-04-09gcc-plugins: drop support for GCC <= 4.7Masahiro Yamada
Nobody was opposed to raising minimum GCC version to 4.8 [1] So, we will drop GCC <= 4.7 support sooner or later. We always use C++ compiler for building plugins for GCC >= 4.8. This commit drops the plugin support for GCC <= 4.7 a bit earlier, which allows us to dump lots of code. [1] Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <> Acked-by: Kees Cook <>
2020-02-04kbuild: rename hostprogs-y/always to hostprogs/always-yMasahiro Yamada
In old days, the "host-progs" syntax was used for specifying host programs. It was renamed to the current "hostprogs-y" in 2004. It is typically useful in scripts/Makefile because it allows Kbuild to selectively compile host programs based on the kernel configuration. This commit renames like follows: always -> always-y hostprogs-y -> hostprogs So, scripts/Makefile will look like this: always-$(CONFIG_BUILD_BIN2C) += ... always-$(CONFIG_KALLSYMS) += ... ... hostprogs := $(always-y) $(always-m) I think this makes more sense because a host program is always a host program, irrespective of the kernel configuration. We want to specify which ones to compile by CONFIG options, so always-y will be handier. The "always", "hostprogs-y", "hostprogs-m" will be kept for backward compatibility for a while.

2019-09-04kbuild: change *FLAGS_<basetarget>.o to take the path relative to $(obj)Masahiro Yamada
Kbuild provides per-file compiler flag addition/removal: CFLAGS_<basetarget>.o CFLAGS_REMOVE_<basetarget>.o AFLAGS_<basetarget>.o AFLAGS_REMOVE_<basetarget>.o CPPFLAGS_<basetarget>.lds HOSTCFLAGS_<basetarget>.o HOSTCXXFLAGS_<basetarget>.o The <basetarget> is the filename of the target with its directory and suffix stripped. This syntax comes into a trouble when two files with the same basename appear in one Makefile, for example: obj-y += foo.o obj-y += dir/foo.o CFLAGS_foo.o := <some-flags> Here, the <some-flags> applies to both foo.o and dir/foo.o The real world problem is: scripts/kconfig/util.c scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/util.c Both files are compiled into scripts/kconfig/mconf, but only the latter should be given with the ncurses flags. It is more sensible to use the relative path to the Makefile, like this: obj-y += foo.o CFLAGS_foo.o := <some-flags> obj-y += dir/foo.o CFLAGS_dir/foo.o := <other-flags> At first, I attempted to replace $(basetarget) with $*. The $* variable is replaced with the stem ('%') part in a pattern rule. This works with most of cases, but does not for explicit rules. For example, arch/ia64/lib/Makefile reuses rule_as_o_S in its own explicit rules, so $* will be empty, resulting in ignoring the per-file AFLAGS. I introduced a new variable, target-stem, which can be used also from explicit rules. Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <> Acked-by: Marc Zyngier <>
2019-08-14kbuild: move flex and bison rules to Makefile.hostMasahiro Yamada
Flex and bison are used for kconfig, dtc, genksyms, all of which are host programs. I never imagine the kernel embeds a parser or a lexer. Move the flex and bison rules to scripts/ This file is included only when hostprogs-y etc. is present in the Makefile in the directory. So, parsing these rules are skipped in most of directories.

The kbuild documentation clearly shows that the documents there are written at different times: some use markdown, some use their own peculiar logic to split sections. Convert everything to ReST without affecting too much the author's style and avoiding adding uneeded markups. The conversion is actually: - add blank lines and identation in order to identify paragraphs; - fix tables markups; - add some lists markups; - mark literal blocks; - adjust title markups. At its new index.rst, let's add a :orphan: while this is not linked to the main index.rst file, in order to avoid build warnings.

I fixed up (almost) all Makefiles in the kernel. Now 'addtree' and 'flags' have been removed.

2017-11-16kbuild: create object directories simpler and fasterMasahiro Yamada
For the out-of-tree build, scripts/ creates output directories, but this operation is not efficient. scripts/Makefile.lib calculates obj-dirs as follows: obj-dirs := $(dir $(multi-objs) $(obj-y)) Please notice $(sort ...) is not used here. Usually the result is as many "./" as objects here. For a lot of duplicated paths, the following command is invoked. _dummy := $(foreach d,$(obj-dirs), $(shell [ -d $(d) ] || mkdir -p $(d))) Then, the costly shell command is run over and over again. I see many points for optimization: [1] Use $(sort ...) to cut down duplicated paths before passing them to system call [2] Use single $(shell ...) instead of repeating it with $(foreach ...) This will reduce forking. [3] We can calculate obj-dirs more simply. Most of objects are already accumulated in $(targets). So, $(dir $(targets)) is fine and more comprehensive. I also removed ugly code in arch/x86/entry/vdso/Makefile. This is now really unnecessary. Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <> Acked-by: Ingo Molnar <> Tested-by: Douglas Anderson <>
2017-11-02License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no licenseGreg Kroah-Hartman
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 lines). 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.

Single-file HOSTCC calls added the libraries from $(HOSTLOADLIBES), but not from $(HOSTLOADLIBES_programname). Multi-file HOSTCC calls do both. This patch fixes that inconsistency. Signed-Off-By: Matthias Urlichs <> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <>

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
