2018-03-26kbuild: remove command line interface LDFLAGS_MODULE from makefiles.txtMasahiro Yamada1-6/+0
Documentation/kbuild/makefiles.txt lists variables used in Makefile whereas Documentation/kbuild/kbuild.txt describes user assignable parameters given via environments or the command line. LDFLAGS_MODULE is a command line interface, so it should be dropped from makefiles.txt. Some lines below in this file, it is clearly explained that KBUILD_LDFLAGS_MODULE is the right one for the internal use: KBUILD_LDFLAGS_MODULE Options for $(LD) when linking modules $(KBUILD_LDFLAGS_MODULE) is used to add arch-specific options used when linking modules. This is often a linker script. From commandline LDFLAGS_MODULE shall be used (see kbuild.txt). Then, kbuild.txt explains LDFLAGS_MODULE, like follows: LDFLAGS_MODULE -------------------------------------------------- Additional options used for $(LD) when linking modules.

2018-03-26kbuild: rename built-in.o to built-in.aNicholas Piggin1-8/+8
Incremental linking is gone, so rename built-in.o to built-in.a, which is the usual extension for archive files. This patch does two things, first is a simple search/replace: git grep -l 'built-in\.o' | xargs sed -i 's/built-in\.o/built-in\.a/g' The second is to invert nesting of nested text manipulations to avoid filtering built-in.a out from libs-y2: -libs-y2 := $(filter-out %.a, $(patsubst %/, %/built-in.a, $(libs-y))) +libs-y2 := $(patsubst %/, %/built-in.a, $(filter-out %.a, $(libs-y))) Signed-off-by: Nicholas Piggin <npiggin@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <yamada.masahiro@socionext.com>

2017-11-08kbuild: clean up *.dtb and *.dtb.S patterns from top-level MakefileMasahiro Yamada1-1/+0
We need to add "clean-files" in Makfiles to clean up DT blobs, but we often miss to do so. Since there are no source files that end with .dtb or .dtb.S, so we can clean-up those files from the top-level Makefile.

2017-06-22kbuild: replace genhdr-y with generated-yMasahiro Yamada1-19/+6
Originally, generated-y and genhdr-y had different meaning, like follows: - generated-y: generated headers (other than asm-generic wrappers) - header-y : headers to be exported - genhdr-y : generated headers to be exported (generated-y + header-y) Since commit fcc8487d477a ("uapi: export all headers under uapi directories"), headers under UAPI directories are all exported. So, there is no more difference between generated-y and genhdr-y. We see two users of genhdr-y, arch/{arm,x86}/include/uapi/asm/Kbuild. They generate some headers in arch/{arm,x86}/include/generated/uapi/asm directories, which are obviously exported. Replace them with generated-y, and abolish genhdr-y.

This patch removes the need of subdir-y. Now all files/directories under arch/<arch>/include/uapi/ are exported. The only change for userland is the layout of the command 'make headers_install_all': directories asm-<arch> are replaced by arch-<arch>/. Those new directories contains all files/directories of the specified arch. Note that only cris and tile have more directories than only asm: - arch-v[10|32] for cris; - arch for tile.

2017-05-11uapi: export all headers under uapi directoriesNicolas Dichtel1-25/+41
Regularly, when a new header is created in include/uapi/, the developer forgets to add it in the corresponding Kbuild file. This error is usually detected after the release is out. In fact, all headers under uapi directories should be exported, thus it's useless to have an exhaustive list. After this patch, the following files, which were not exported, are now exported (with make headers_install_all): asm-arc/kvm_para.h asm-arc/ucontext.h asm-blackfin/shmparam.h asm-blackfin/ucontext.h asm-c6x/shmparam.h asm-c6x/ucontext.h asm-cris/kvm_para.h asm-h8300/shmparam.h asm-h8300/ucontext.h asm-hexagon/shmparam.h asm-m32r/kvm_para.h asm-m68k/kvm_para.h asm-m68k/shmparam.h asm-metag/kvm_para.h asm-metag/shmparam.h asm-metag/ucontext.h asm-mips/hwcap.h asm-mips/reg.h asm-mips/ucontext.h asm-nios2/kvm_para.h asm-nios2/ucontext.h asm-openrisc/shmparam.h asm-parisc/kvm_para.h asm-powerpc/perf_regs.h asm-sh/kvm_para.h asm-sh/ucontext.h asm-tile/shmparam.h asm-unicore32/shmparam.h asm-unicore32/ucontext.h asm-x86/hwcap2.h asm-xtensa/kvm_para.h drm/armada_drm.h drm/etnaviv_drm.h drm/vgem_drm.h linux/aspeed-lpc-ctrl.h linux/auto_dev-ioctl.h linux/bcache.h linux/btrfs_tree.h linux/can/vxcan.h linux/cifs/cifs_mount.h linux/coresight-stm.h linux/cryptouser.h linux/fsmap.h linux/genwqe/genwqe_card.h linux/hash_info.h linux/kcm.h linux/kcov.h linux/kfd_ioctl.h linux/lightnvm.h linux/module.h linux/nbd-netlink.h linux/nilfs2_api.h linux/nilfs2_ondisk.h linux/nsfs.h linux/pr.h linux/qrtr.h linux/rpmsg.h linux/sched/types.h linux/sed-opal.h linux/smc.h linux/smc_diag.h linux/stm.h linux/switchtec_ioctl.h linux/vfio_ccw.h linux/wil6210_uapi.h rdma/bnxt_re-abi.h Note that I have removed from this list the files which are generated in every exported directories (like .install or .install.cmd).

2016-07-07kbuild, x86: Track generated headers with generated-yJames Hogan1-0/+14
Track generated header files which aren't already in genhdr-y, alongside generic-y wrappers in the */include/generated/[uapi/]asm/ directories. Currently only x86 generates extra headers in these directories, for the purposes of enumerating system calls for different ABIs, and xen hypercalls. This will allow the asm-generic wrapper handling code to remove stale wrappers when files are removed from generic-y, without also removing these headers which are generated separately.

2015-07-06kbuild: Allow arch Makefiles to override {cpp,ld,c}flagsMichal Marek1-0/+8
Since commit a1c48bb1 (Makefile: Fix unrecognized cross-compiler command line options), the arch Makefile is included earlier by the main Makefile, preventing the arc architecture to set its -O3 compiler option. Since there might be more use cases for an arch Makefile to fine-tune the options, add support for ARCH_CPPFLAGS, ARCH_AFLAGS and ARCH_CFLAGS variables that are appended to the respective kbuild variables.

2012-11-30kbuild: centralize .dts->.dtb ruleStephen Warren1-7/+8
All architectures that use cmd_dtc do so in almost the same way. Create a central build rule to avoid duplication. The one difference is that most current uses of dtc build $(obj)/%.dtb from $(src)/dts/%.dts rather than building the .dtb in the same directory as the .dts file. This difference will be eliminated arch-by-arch in future patches. MIPS is the exception here; it already uses the exact same rule as the new common rule, so the duplicate is removed in this patch to avoid any conflict. arch/mips changes courtesy of Ralf Baechle. Update Documentation/kbuild to remove the explicit call to cmd_dtc from the example, now that the rule exists in a centralized location.

This rather unexpected behavior is intentional as per http://gcc.gnu.org/PR28322, so work around it by testing for support of the opposite option (without the no-). Introduce a new Makefile function cc-disable-warning that does this and update two uses of cc-option in the toplevel Makefile.

2011-04-28kbuild: asm-generic supportSam Ravnborg1-0/+36
There is an increasing amount of header files shared between individual architectures in asm-generic. To avoid a lot of dummy wrapper files that just include the corresponding file in asm-generic provide some basic support in kbuild for this. With the following patch an architecture can maintain a list of files in the file arch/$(ARCH)/include/asm/Kbuild To use a generic file just add: generic-y += <name-of-header-file.h> For each file listed kbuild will generate the necessary wrapper in arch/$(ARCH)/include/generated/asm. When installing userspace headers a wrapper is likewise created. The original inspiration for this came from the unicore32 patchset - although a different method is used. The patch includes several improvements from Arnd Bergmann. Michael Marek contributed Makefile.asm-generic. Remis Baima did an intial implementation along to achive the same - see https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/13352/ Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org> Acked-by: Guan Xuetao <guanxuetao@mprc.pku.edu.cn> Tested-by: Guan Xuetao <guanxuetao@mprc.pku.edu.cn> Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Cc: Remis Lima Baima <remis.developer@googlemail.com> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>

2010-12-23of: Add support for linking device tree blobs into vmlinuxDirk Brandewie1-0/+15
This patch adds support for linking device tree blob(s) into vmlinux. Modifies asm-generic/vmlinux.lds.h to add linking .dtb sections into vmlinux. To maintain compatiblity with the of/fdt driver code platforms MUST copy the blob to a non-init memory location before the kernel frees the .init.* sections in the image. Modifies scripts/Makefile.lib to add a kbuild command to compile DTS files to device tree blobs and a rule to create objects to wrap the blobs for linking. STRUCT_ALIGNMENT is defined in vmlinux.lds.h for use in the rule to create wrapper objects for the dtb in Makefile.lib. The STRUCT_ALIGN() macro in vmlinux.lds.h is modified to use the STRUCT_ALIGNMENT definition. The DTB's are placed on 32 byte boundries to allow parsing the blob with driver/of/fdt.c during early boot without having to copy the blob to get the structure alignment GCC expects. A DTB is linked in by adding the DTB object to the list of objects to be linked into vmlinux in the archtecture specific Makefile using obj-y += foo.dtb.o Signed-off-by: Dirk Brandewie <dirk.brandewie@gmail.com> Acked-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz> [grant.likely@secretlab.ca: cleaned up whitespace inconsistencies] Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>
