parentcrypto: arm/sha256 - avoid sha256 code on ARMv7-M (diff)
crypto: arm - workaround for building with old binutils
Old versions of binutils (before 2.23) do not yet understand the crypto-neon-fp-armv8 fpu instructions, and an attempt to build these files results in a build failure: arch/arm/crypto/aes-ce-core.S:133: Error: selected processor does not support ARM mode `vld1.8 {q10-q11},[ip]!' arch/arm/crypto/aes-ce-core.S:133: Error: bad instruction `aese.8 q0,q8' arch/arm/crypto/aes-ce-core.S:133: Error: bad instruction `aesmc.8 q0,q0' arch/arm/crypto/aes-ce-core.S:133: Error: bad instruction `aese.8 q0,q9' arch/arm/crypto/aes-ce-core.S:133: Error: bad instruction `aesmc.8 q0,q0' Since the affected versions are still in widespread use, and this breaks 'allmodconfig' builds, we should try to at least get a successful kernel build. Unfortunately, I could not come up with a way to make the Kconfig symbol depend on the binutils version, which would be the nicest solution. Instead, this patch uses the 'as-instr' Kbuild macro to find out whether the support is present in the assembler, and otherwise emits a non-fatal warning indicating which selected modules could not be built.
