2007-05-02[PATCH] x86: deflate stack usage in lib/inflate.cJeremy Fitzhardinge1-1/+1
inflate_fixed and huft_build together use around 2.7k of stack. When using 4k stacks, I saw stack overflows from interrupts arriving while unpacking the root initrd: do_IRQ: stack overflow: 384 [<c0106b64>] show_trace_log_lvl+0x1a/0x30 [<c01075e6>] show_trace+0x12/0x14 [<c010763f>] dump_stack+0x16/0x18 [<c0107ca4>] do_IRQ+0x6d/0xd9 [<c010202b>] xen_evtchn_do_upcall+0x6e/0xa2 [<c0106781>] xen_hypervisor_callback+0x25/0x2c [<c010116c>] xen_restore_fl+0x27/0x29 [<c0330f63>] _spin_unlock_irqrestore+0x4a/0x50 [<c0117aab>] change_page_attr+0x577/0x584 [<c0117b45>] kernel_map_pages+0x8d/0xb4 [<c016a314>] cache_alloc_refill+0x53f/0x632 [<c016a6c2>] __kmalloc+0xc1/0x10d [<c0463d34>] malloc+0x10/0x12 [<c04641c1>] huft_build+0x2a7/0x5fa [<c04645a5>] inflate_fixed+0x91/0x136 [<c04657e2>] unpack_to_rootfs+0x5f2/0x8c1 [<c0465acf>] populate_rootfs+0x1e/0xe4 (This was under Xen, but there's no reason it couldn't happen on bare hardware.) This patch mallocs the local variables, thereby reducing the stack usage to sane levels. Also, up the heap size for the kernel decompressor to deal with the extra allocation.

2006-07-03kbuild: introduce utsrelease.hSam Ravnborg3-3/+3
include/linux/version.h contained both actual KERNEL version and UTS_RELEASE that contains a subset from git SHA1 for when kernel was compiled as part of a git repository. This had the unfortunate side-effect that all files including version.h would be recompiled when some git changes was made due to changes SHA1. Split it out so we keep independent parts in separate files. Also update checkversion.pl script to no longer check for UTS_RELEASE. Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

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!
