2006-06-20[PATCH] audit: path-based rulesAmy Griffis1-1/+2
In this implementation, audit registers inotify watches on the parent directories of paths specified in audit rules. When audit's inotify event handler is called, it updates any affected rules based on the filesystem event. If the parent directory is renamed, removed, or its filesystem is unmounted, audit removes all rules referencing that inotify watch. To keep things simple, this implementation limits location-based auditing to the directory entries in an existing directory. Given a path-based rule for /foo/bar/passwd, the following table applies: passwd modified -- audit event logged passwd replaced -- audit event logged, rules list updated bar renamed -- rule removed foo renamed -- untracked, meaning that the rule now applies to the new location Audit users typically want to have many rules referencing filesystem objects, which can significantly impact filtering performance. This patch also adds an inode-number-based rule hash to mitigate this situation. The patch is relative to the audit git tree: http://kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/viro/audit-current.git;a=summary and uses the inotify kernel API: http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/6/1/145 Signed-off-by: Amy Griffis <amy.griffis@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2006-03-12Kconfig: remove the CONFIG_CC_ALIGN_* optionsAdrian Bunk1-37/+0
I don't see any use case for the CONFIG_CC_ALIGN_* options: - they are only available if EMBEDDED - people using EMBEDDED will most likely also enable CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE - the default for -Os is to disable alignment In case someone is doing performance comparisons and discovers that the default settings gcc chooses aren't good, the only sane thing is to discuss whether it makes sense to change this, not through offering options to change this locally.

2006-01-10[PATCH] "tiny-make-id16-support-optional" fixesAdrian Bunk1-3/+1
It seems the "make UID16 support optional" patch was checked when it edited the -tiny tree some time ago, but it wasn't checked whether it still matches the current situation when it was submitted for inclusion in -mm. This patch fixes the following bugs: - ARCH_S390X does no longer exist, nowadays this has to be expressed through (S390 && 64BIT) - in five architecture specific Kconfig files the UID16 options weren't removed Additionally, it changes the fragile negative dependencies of UID16 to positive dependencies (new architectures are more likely to not require UID16 support).

2006-01-08[PATCH] slob: introduce the SLOB allocatorMatt Mackall1-0/+13
configurable replacement for slab allocator This adds a CONFIG_SLAB option under CONFIG_EMBEDDED. When CONFIG_SLAB is disabled, the kernel falls back to using the 'SLOB' allocator. SLOB is a traditional K&R/UNIX allocator with a SLAB emulation layer, similar to the original Linux kmalloc allocator that SLAB replaced. It's signicantly smaller code and is more memory efficient. But like all similar allocators, it scales poorly and suffers from fragmentation more than SLAB, so it's only appropriate for small systems. It's been tested extensively in the Linux-tiny tree. I've also stress-tested it with make -j 8 compiles on a 3G SMP+PREEMPT box (not recommended). Here's a comparison for otherwise identical builds, showing SLOB saving nearly half a megabyte of RAM: $ size vmlinux* text data bss dec hex filename 3336372 529360 190812 4056544 3de5e0 vmlinux-slab 3323208 527948 190684 4041840 3dac70 vmlinux-slob $ size mm/{slab,slob}.o text data bss dec hex filename 13221 752 48 14021 36c5 mm/slab.o 1896 52 8 1956 7a4 mm/slob.o /proc/meminfo: SLAB SLOB delta MemTotal: 27964 kB 27980 kB +16 kB MemFree: 24596 kB 25092 kB +496 kB Buffers: 36 kB 36 kB 0 kB Cached: 1188 kB 1188 kB 0 kB SwapCached: 0 kB 0 kB 0 kB Active: 608 kB 600 kB -8 kB Inactive: 808 kB 812 kB +4 kB HighTotal: 0 kB 0 kB 0 kB HighFree: 0 kB 0 kB 0 kB LowTotal: 27964 kB 27980 kB +16 kB LowFree: 24596 kB 25092 kB +496 kB SwapTotal: 0 kB 0 kB 0 kB SwapFree: 0 kB 0 kB 0 kB Dirty: 4 kB 12 kB +8 kB Writeback: 0 kB 0 kB 0 kB Mapped: 560 kB 556 kB -4 kB Slab: 1756 kB 0 kB -1756 kB CommitLimit: 13980 kB 13988 kB +8 kB Committed_AS: 4208 kB 4208 kB 0 kB PageTables: 28 kB 28 kB 0 kB VmallocTotal: 1007312 kB 1007312 kB 0 kB VmallocUsed: 48 kB 48 kB 0 kB VmallocChunk: 1007264 kB 1007264 kB 0 kB (this work has been sponsored in part by CELF) From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Fix 32-bitness bugs in mm/slob.c.

2006-01-06[PATCH] NOMMU: Make SYSV IPC SHM use ramfs facilities on NOMMUDavid Howells1-1/+0
The attached patch makes the SYSV IPC shared memory facilities use the new ramfs facilities on a no-MMU kernel. The following changes are made: (1) There are now shmem_mmap() and shmem_get_unmapped_area() functions to allow the IPC SHM facilities to commune with the tiny-shmem and shmem code. (2) ramfs files now need resizing using do_truncate() rather than by modifying the inode size directly (see shmem_file_setup()). This causes ramfs to attempt to bind a block of pages of sufficient size to the inode. (3) CONFIG_SYSVIPC is no longer contingent on CONFIG_MMU.

2005-12-20[SPARC64]: Stop putting -finline-limit=XXX into CFLAGSDavid S. Miller1-1/+0
It was a stupid workaround for the "static inline" vs. "extern inline" issues of long ago, and it is what causes schedule() to be inlined like crazy into kernel/sched.c when -Os is specified.

2005-12-14Move size optimization option outside of EMBEDDED menu, mark it EXPERIMENTALLinus Torvalds1-12/+14
Also, disable on sparc64 - a number of people report breakage. Probably a compiler bug, but it's quite possible that it tickles some latent kernel problem too. It still defaults to 'y' everywhere else (when enabled through EXPERIMENTAL), and Dave Jones points out that Fedora (and RHEL4) has been building with size optimizations for a long time on x86, x86-64, ia64, s390, s390x, ppc32 and ppc64. So it is really only moderately experimental, but the sparc64 breakage certainly shows that it can trigger "issues". Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-12-13Expose "Optimize for size" option for everybodyLinus Torvalds1-1/+1
Let's put my money where my mouth is. Smaller code is almost always faster, if only because a single I$ miss ends up leaving a lot of cycles to make up for. And system software - kernels in particular - are known for taking more cache misses than most other kinds. On my random config, this made the kernel about 10% smaller, and lmbench seems to say that it's pretty uniformly faster too. Your milage may vary. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
