2020-02-25docs: Fix empty parallelism argumentKees Cook1-1/+1
When there was no parallelism (no top-level -j arg and a pre-1.7 sphinx-build), the argument passed would be empty ("") instead of just being missing, which would (understandably) badly confuse sphinx-build. Fix this by removing the quotes. Reported-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael@kernel.org> Fixes: 51e46c7a4007 ("docs, parallelism: Rearrange how jobserver reservations are made") Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org # v5.5 only Signed-off-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>
2019-11-22docs, parallelism: Rearrange how jobserver reservations are madeKees Cook1-0/+33
Rasmus correctly observed that the existing jobserver reservation only worked if no other build targets were specified. The correct approach is to hold the jobserver slots until sphinx has finished. To fix this, the following changes are made: - refactor (and rename) scripts/jobserver-exec to set an environment variable for the maximally reserved jobserver slots and exec a child, to release the slots on exit. - create Documentation/scripts/parallel-wrapper.sh which examines both $PARALLELISM and the detected "-jauto" logic from Documentation/Makefile to decide sphinx's final -j argument. - chain these together in Documentation/Makefile Suggested-by: Rasmus Villemoes <linux@rasmusvillemoes.dk> Link: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/eb25959a-9ec4-3530-2031-d9d716b40b20@rasmusvillemoes.dk Signed-off-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Link: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20191121205929.40371-4-keescook@chromium.org Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>
