2021-05-02kbuild: replace LANG=C with LC_ALL=CMasahiro Yamada
LANG gives a weak default to each LC_* in case it is not explicitly defined. LC_ALL, if set, overrides all other LC_* variables. LANG < LC_CTYPE, LC_COLLATE, LC_MONETARY, LC_NUMERIC, ... < LC_ALL This is why documentation such as [1] suggests to set LC_ALL in build scripts to get the deterministic result. LANG=C is not strong enough to override LC_* that may be set by end users.

2020-09-25scripts/setlocalversion: make git describe output more reliableRasmus Villemoes
When building for an embedded target using Yocto, we're sometimes observing that the version string that gets built into vmlinux (and thus what uname -a reports) differs from the path under /lib/modules/ where modules get installed in the rootfs, but only in the length of the -gabc123def suffix. Hence modprobe always fails. The problem is that Yocto has the concept of "sstate" (shared state), which allows different developers/buildbots/etc. to share build artifacts, based on a hash of all the metadata that went into building that artifact - and that metadata includes all dependencies (e.g. the compiler used etc.). That normally works quite well; usually a clean build (without using any sstate cache) done by one developer ends up being binary identical to a build done on another host. However, one thing that can cause two developers to end up with different builds [and thus make one's vmlinux package incompatible with the other's kernel-dev package], which is not captured by the metadata hashing, is this `git describe`: The output of that can be affected by (1) git version: before 2.11 git defaulted to a minimum of 7, since 2.11 (git.git commit e6c587) the default is dynamic based on the number of objects in the repo (2) hence even if both run the same git version, the output can differ based on how many remotes are being tracked (or just lots of local development branches or plain old garbage) (3) and of course somebody could have a core.abbrev config setting in ~/.gitconfig So in order to avoid `uname -a` output relying on such random details of the build environment which are rather hard to ensure are consistent between developers and buildbots, make sure the abbreviated sha1 always consists of exactly 12 hex characters. That is consistent with the current rule for -stable patches, and is almost always enough to identify the head commit unambigously - in the few cases where it does not, the v5.4.3-00021- prefix would certainly nail it down.

2019-10-05scripts/setlocalversion: clear local variable to make it work for shMasahiro Yamada
Geert Uytterhoeven reports a strange side-effect of commit 858805b336be ("kbuild: add $(BASH) to run scripts with bash-extension"), which inserts the contents of a localversion file in the build directory twice. [Steps to Reproduce] $ echo bar > localversion $ mkdir build $ cd build/ $ echo foo > localversion $ make -s -f ../Makefile defconfig include/config/kernel.release $ cat include/config/kernel.release 5.4.0-rc1foofoobar This comes down to the behavior change of local variables. The 'man sh' on my Ubuntu machine, where sh is an alias to dash, explains as follows: When a variable is made local, it inherits the initial value and exported and readonly flags from the variable with the same name in the surrounding scope, if there is one. Otherwise, the variable is initially unset. [Test Code] foo () { local res echo "res: $res" } res=1 foo [Result] $ sh res: 1 $ bash res: So, scripts/setlocalversion correctly works only for bash in spite of its hashbang being #!/bin/sh. Nobody had noticed it before because CONFIG_SHELL was previously set to bash almost all the time. Now that CONFIG_SHELL is set to sh, we must write portable and correct code. I gave the Fixes tag to the commit that uncovered the issue. Clear the variable 'res' in collect_files() to make it work for sh (and it also works on distributions where sh is an alias to bash).

2018-11-21scripts/setlocalversion: Improve -dirty check with git-status ↵Brian Norris
--no-optional-locks git-diff-index does not refresh the index for you, so using it for a "-dirty" check can give misleading results. Commit 6147b1cf19651 ("scripts/setlocalversion: git: Make -dirty check more robust") tried to fix this by switching to git-status, but it overlooked the fact that git-status also writes to the .git directory of the source tree, which is definitely not kosher for an out-of-tree (O=) build. That is getting reverted. Fortunately, git-status now supports avoiding writing to the index via the --no-optional-locks flag, as of git 2.14. It still calculates an up-to-date index, but it avoids writing it out to the .git directory. So, let's retry the solution from commit 6147b1cf19651 using this new flag first, and if it fails, we assume this is an older version of git and just use the old git-diff-index method. It's hairy to get the 'grep -vq' (inverted matching) correct by stashing the output of git-status (you have to be careful about the difference betwen "empty stdin" and "blank line on stdin"), so just pipe the output directly to grep and use a regex that's good enough for both the git-status and git-diff-index version.

2018-11-11Revert "scripts/setlocalversion: git: Make -dirty check more robust"Guenter Roeck
This reverts commit 6147b1cf19651c7de297e69108b141fb30aa2349. The reverted patch results in attempted write access to the source repository, even if that repository is mounted read-only. Output from "strace git status -uno --porcelain": getcwd("/tmp/linux-test", 129) = 16 open("/tmp/linux-test/.git/index.lock", O_RDWR|O_CREAT|O_EXCL|O_CLOEXEC, 0666) = -1 EROFS (Read-only file system) While git appears to be able to handle this situation, a monitored build environment (such as the one used for Chrome OS kernel builds) may detect it and bail out with an access violation error. On top of that, the attempted write access suggests that git _will_ write to the file even if a build output directory is specified. Users may have the reasonable expectation that the source repository remains untouched in that situation.

2018-09-01scripts/setlocalversion: git: Make -dirty check more robustGenki Sky
$(git diff-index) relies on the index being refreshed. This refreshing of the index used to happen, but was removed in cdf2bc632ebc ("scripts/setlocalversion on write-protected source tree", 2013-06-14) due to issues with a read-only filesystem. If the index is not refreshed, one runs into problems. E.g. as described in [0], git stores the uid in its index, so even if just the uid has changed (or git is tricked into thinking so), then we will think the tree is dirty. So as in [1], if you package linux-git with a system that uses fakeroot(1), you get a "-dirty" version. Unless you manually $(git update-index --refresh) themselves. The simplest solution seems to be $(git status --porcelain), with an additional flag saying "ignore untracked files". It seems clearer about what it does, and avoids issues regarding cached indexes and writable filesystems, but still has stable output for scripting.

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.

2014-01-03Fix detectition of kernel git repository in setlocalversion script [take #2]Franck Bui-Huu
setlocalversion script was testing the presence of .git directory in order to find out if git is used as SCM to track the current kernel project. However in some cases, .git is not a directory but can be a file: when the kernel is a git submodule part of a git super project for example. This patch just fixes this by using 'git rev-parse --show-cdup' to check that the current directory is the kernel git topdir.

2013-06-24scripts/setlocalversion on write-protected source treeChristian Kujau
I just stumbled across another[0] issue when scripts/setlocalversion operates on a write-protected source tree. Back then[0] the source tree was on an read-only NFS share, so "test -w" was introduced before "git update-index" was run. This time, the source tree is on read/write NFS share, but the permissions are world-readable and only a specific user (or root) can write. Thus, "test -w ." returns "0" and then runs "git update-index", producing the following message (on a dirty tree): fatal: Unable to create '/usr/local/src/linux-git/.git/index.lock': Permission denied While it says "fatal", compilation continues just fine. However, I don't think a kernel compilation should alter the source tree (or the .git directory) in any way and I don't see how removing "git update-index" could do any harm. The Mercurial and SVN routines in scripts/setlocalversion don't have any tree-modifying commands, AFAICS. So, maybe the patch below would be acceptable.

It's not clear to me why this way of writing the check was used instead of just using grep -q to suppress output, but unless there is some deep reason I don't know, this way looks cleaner to me anyway, and gets rid of the ugly message spew.

2010-07-20kbuild: Make the setlocalversion script POSIX-compliantMichał Górny
The 'source' builtin is a bash alias to the '.' (dot) builtin. While the former is supported only by bash, the latter is specified in POSIX and works fine with all POSIX-compliant shells I am aware of. The '$_' special parameter is specific to bash. It is partially supported in dash too but it always evaluates to the current script path (which causes the script to enter a loop recursively re-executing itself). This is why I have replaced the two occurences of '$_' with the explicit parameter. The 'local' builtin is another example of bash-specific code. Although it is supported by all POSIX-compliant shells I am aware of, it is not part of POSIX specification and thus the code should not rely on it assigning a specific value to the local variable. Moreover, the 'posh' shell has a limited version of 'local' builtin not supporting direct variable assignments. Thus, I have broken one of the 'local' declarations down into a (non-POSIX) 'local' declaration and a plain (POSIX-compliant) variable assignment.

This introduces a dependecy to grep -E, which should be fine. Signed-off-by: Uwe Zeisberger <> Acked-By: Ryan Anderson <> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <>
2006-01-08kbuild: In setlocalversion change -git_dirty to just -dirtyRyan Anderson
When building Debian packages directly from the git tree, the appended "git_dirty" is a problem due to the underscore. In order to cause the least problems, change that just to "dirty". Signed-off-by: Ryan Anderson <> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <>
2006-01-06kbuild: Use git in scripts/setlocalversionRene Scharfe
Currently scripts/setlocalversion is a Perl script that tries to figure out the current git commit ID of a repo without using git. It also imports Digest::MD5 without using it and generally is too big for the small task it does. :] And it always reports a git ID, even when the HEAD is tagged -- this is a bug. This patch replaces it with a Bourne Shell script that uses git commands to do the same. I can't come up with a scenario where someone would use a git repo and refuse to install git core at the same time, so I think it's reasonable to assume git is available. The new script also reports uncommitted changes by adding -git_dirty to the version string. Obviously you can't see from that _what_ has been changed from the last commit, so it's more of a reminder that you forgot to commit something. The script is easily extensible: simply add a check for Mercurial (or whatever) below the git check. Note: the script doesn't print a newline char anymore. That's only because it was easier to implement it that way, not a feature (or bug). 'make kernelrelease' doesn't care.

2005-08-10[PATCH] kbuild: automatically append a short string to the version based ↵Ryan Anderson
upon the git commit If CONFIG_AUTO_LOCALVERSION is set, the user is using a git-based tree, and the current HEAD is not referred to by any tags in .git/refs/tags/, append -g and the first 8 characters of the commit to the version string. This makes it easier to use git-bisect, and/or to do a daily build, without trampling on your older, working builds, or accidentally setting up conflicting sets of modules.
