2019-01-28s390/hypfs: no need to check return value of debugfs_create functionsGreg Kroah-Hartman1-3/+3
When calling debugfs functions, there is no need to ever check the return value. The function can work or not, but the code logic should never do something different based on this.

2017-11-02License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no licenseGreg Kroah-Hartman1-0/+1
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.

2015-02-10s390/hypfs: Eliminate hypfs intervalMichael Holzheu1-3/+0
Currently the binary hypfs interfaces provides new data only once within an interval time of one second. This patch removes this restriction and now new data is returned immediately on every read on a hypfs binary file. This is done in order to allow more consistent snapshots for programs that read multiple hypfs binary files.

2015-02-10s390/hypfs: Add diagnose 0c supportMichael Holzheu1-0/+4
With this feature, you can read the CPU performance metrics provided by the z/VM diagnose 0C. This then allows to get the management time for each online CPU of the guest where the diagnose is executed. The new debugfs file /sys/kernel/debug/s390_hypfs/diag_0c exports the diag0C binary data to user space via an open/read/close interface. The binary data consists out of a header structure followed by an array that contains the diagnose 0c data for each online CPU.

2012-07-20s390/comments: unify copyright messages and remove file namesHeiko Carstens1-2/+1
Remove the file name from the comment at top of many files. In most cases the file name was wrong anyway, so it's rather pointless. Also unify the IBM copyright statement. We did have a lot of sightly different statements and wanted to change them one after another whenever a file gets touched. However that never happened. Instead people start to take the old/"wrong" statements to use as a template for new files. So unify all of them in one go. Signed-off-by: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com>

2011-01-05[S390] hypfs: Move buffer allocation from open to readMichael Holzheu1-2/+31
Currently the buffer for diagnose data is allocated in the open function of the debugfs file and is released in the close function. This has the drawback that a user (root) can pin that memory by not closing the file. This patch moves the buffer allocation to the read function. The buffer is automatically released after the buffer is copied to userspace. Signed-off-by: Michael Holzheu <holzheu@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>

2006-06-23[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystemMichael Holzheu1-0/+30
On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data. For example, it is possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus. In order to provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs framework. The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'. All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which can be accessed from user space. All data is represented as ASCII strings. When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu information. The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update is made. An update can be triggered from user space through writing 'something' into a special purpose update file. We create the following directory structure: <mount-point>/ update cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime <cpu-id> ... hyp/ type systems/ <lpar-name> cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime cputime onlinetime <cpu-id> ... <lpar-name> cpus/ ... - update: File to trigger update - cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus - cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds. - hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information - hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor') - systems/: Directory for all LPARs - systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to the LPAR (LPAR overhead). - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU has been online. As mount point for the filesystem /sys/hypervisor/s390 is created. The update process is triggered when writing 'something' into the 'update' file at the top level hypfs directory. You can do this e.g. with 'echo 1 > update'. During the update the whole directory structure is deleted and built up again.
