2007-12-23kconfig: obey KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG choices with randconfig.Paul Mundt1-1/+2
Currently when using KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG with randconfig the choice options are clobbered. As recommended by Roman, this adds an is_new test to see whether to select a new option or obey the existing one. This is a resend of the earlier patch a couple of weeks ago, since there was no reply.

2007-12-17fix bloat-o-meter for ppc64Nathan Lynch1-1/+2
bloat-o-meter assumes that a '.' anywhere in a symbol's name means that it is static and prepends 'static.' to the first part of the symbol name, discarding the portion of the name that follows the '.'. However, the names of function entry points begin with '.' in the ppc64 ABI. This causes all function text size changes to be accounted to a single 'static.' entry in the output when comparing ppc64 kernels. Change getsizes() to ignore the first character of the symbol name when searching for '.'.

2007-11-29update checkpatch.pl to version 0.12Andy Whitcroft1-108/+287
This version brings a new terse output mode as well as many improvements to the unary detection and bare type regcognition. It also brings the usual updates for false positives, though these seem to be slowing markedly now that the unary detector is no longer just putting its finger in the air and guessing. Of note: - new --terse mode producing a single line per report - loosening of the block brace checks - new checks for enum/union/struch brace placements - hugely expanded "bare type" detection - checks for inline usage - better handling of already open comment blocks - handle patches which introduce or remove lines without newlines Andy Whitcroft (19): Version: 0.12 style fixes as spotted by checkpatch add a --terse options of a single line of output per report block brace checks should only apply for single line blocks all new bare type detector check spacing for open braces with enum, union and struct check for LINUX_VERSION_CODE macros definition bracketing checks need to ignore -ve context clean up the mail-back mode, -q et al expand possible type matching to declarations allow const and sparse annotations on possible types handle possible types as regular types everywhere prefer plain inline over __inline__ and __inline all new open comment detection fix up conditional extraction for if assignment checks add const to the possible type matcher unary checks: a for loop is a conditional too possible types: detect function pointer definitions handle missind newlines at end of file, report addition Signed-off-by: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Acked-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-11-17x86: simplify "make ARCH=x86" and fix kconfig all.configSam Ravnborg3-29/+0
Simplify "make ARCH=x86" and fix kconfig so we again can set 64BIT in all.config. For a fix the diffstat is nice: 6 files changed, 3 insertions(+), 36 deletions(-) The patch reverts these commits: - 0f855aa64b3f63d35a891510cf7db932a435c116 ("kconfig: add helper to set config symbol from environment variable") - 2a113281f5cd2febbab21a93c8943f8d3eece4d3 ("kconfig: use $K64BIT to set 64BIT with all*config targets") Roman Zippel pointed out that kconfig supported string compares so the additional complexity introduced by the above two patches were not needed. With this patch we have following behaviour: # make {allno,allyes,allmod,rand}config [ARCH=...] option \ host arch | 32bit | 64bit ===================================================== ./. | 32bit | 64bit ARCH=x86 | 32bit | 32bit ARCH=i386 | 32bit | 32bit ARCH=x86_64 | 64bit | 64bit The general rule are that ARCH= and native architecture takes precedence over the configuration. So make ARCH=i386 [whatever] will always build a 32-bit kernel no matter what the configuration says. The configuration will be updated to 32-bit if it was configured to 64-bit and the other way around. This behaviour is consistent with previous behaviour so no suprises here. make ARCH=x86 will per default result in a 32-bit kernel but as the only ARCH= value x86 allow the user to select between 32-bit and 64-bit using menuconfig.

2007-11-12x86: enable "make ARCH=x86"Sam Ravnborg1-6/+1
After unification of the Kconfig files and introducing K64BIT support in kconfig it required only trivial changes to enable "make ARCH=x86". With this patch you can build for x86_64 in several ways: 1) make ARCH=x86_64 2) make ARCH=x86 K64BIT=y 3) make ARCH=x86 menuconfig => select 64-bit Likewise for i386 with the addition that i386 is default is you say ARCH=x86.

This is for example useful for powerpc to generate allmodconfig for both bit sizes - like this: make ARCH=powerpc K64BIT=y make ARCH=powerpc K64BIT=n To use this the Kconfig file must use "64BIT" as the config value to select between 32 and 64 bit.

2007-10-19Revert "kconfig: tristate choices with mixed tristate and boolean values"Linus Torvalds1-26/+9
This reverts commit a5bf3d891a6a0fb5aa122792d965e3774108b923. David Brownell notes that this causes a regression visible in the drivers/usb/gadget Kconfig file: "That Kconfig hasn't changed (other than adding new drivers), and it's worked that way for several years now ... so the issue seems to be changes in menuconfig/kconfig/etc semantics. The issue is that when USB_GADGET=m, it's no longer possible to configure peripheral controller drivers as modules ... the controller drivers can now only be configured for static linkage. It should be making a choice of one of the controller drivers which could work on the target system, and allow that driver to be linked either as a module (ok iff USB_GADGET=m) or statically." Reverting this commit resolves the problem, and also fixes a second problem that David noticed: various dependent options couldn't be enabled.

2007-10-18kbuild: modpost problem when symbols move from one module to anotherTrent Piepho1-0/+3
When part of build an external module tree, modpost first reads in the kernel's and then the external tree's Module.symvers files. From these files it establishes a symbol => module mapping. When it later reads in each module built and processes the symbols it finds, it discovers the symbol=>module mapping from Module.symvers and leaves it as it is. The problem comes with a module has been re-named or a symbol has moved from one module to another, since the Module.symvers file was generated. modpost does not update the symbol=>module mapping when it finds the new location of the symbol when scanning the newly built modules. This results in the module containing incorrect dependency information and the new Module.symvers file written by modpost will also contain the incorrect mappings, perpetuating the problem to the next build, and so on. When building the out of kernel development tree for kernel subsystem, like v4l-dvb or ALSA, deleting the external Module.symvers file before building (which the kernel build system doesn't do and shouldn't be necessary anyway), won't fix the problem. modpost still reads the kernel's Module.symvers, and since we a building a kernel subsystem, it will define the same symbols as the external modules.

Johannes Berg reports (Thanks!) that &struct names are not highlighted in html output format when they are inside a DOC: block. DOC: blocks were not escaped thru xml_escape() like other kernel-doc comments were. Fixed that. However, that left a problem with <p> ($blankline_html) being processed thru xml_escape(), converting it to &lt;p&gt;, which isn't good for the generated html output (the <p> should remain unchanged), so this patch also introduces the notion of "local" kernel-doc meta-characters ('\\\\mnemonic:'), which are converted to html just before writing the stream to its output file.

2007-10-12kconfig/menuconfig: distinguish between selected-by-another options and commentsMatej Laitl1-8/+15
menuconfig currently represents options implied by another option ('select' directive in Kconfig) by prefixing them with '---'. Unfortunately the same notation is used for comments. If the implied option is module capable, user can still switch between Y and M, all without any feedback until she visits option's help. (try saying M to MAC80211 and then toggling CFG80211) This patch changes notation of selected-by-another items by introducing 2 new representations for implied options: {*} or {M} for options selected by another modularized one, thus builtin or module capable, -*- or -M- for options that cannot be at the moment changed by user. The idea is to represent actual capability of the option by braces (dashes) around and to always report actual state by * or M inside.

Change the invocations of make in the output directory Makefile and the main Makefile for separate object trees to pass all goals to one $(MAKE) via a new phony target "sub-make" and the existing target _all. When compiling with separate object directories, a separate make is called in the context of another directory (from the output directory the main Makefile is called, the Makefile is then restarted with current directory set to the object tree). Before this patch, when multiple make command goals are specified, each target results in a separate make invocation. With make -j, these invocations may run in parallel, resulting in multiple commands running in the same directory clobbering each others results. I did not try to address make -j for mixed dot-config and no-dot-config targets. Because the order does matter, a solution was not obvious. Perhaps a simple check for MAKEFLAGS having -j and refusing to run would be appropriate. Signed-off-by: Milton Miller <miltonm@bga.com> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
2007-10-12kbuild: update _shipped files for kconfig syntax cleanupSam Ravnborg3-754/+897
Update _shipped files so regular user does not need to have bison/flex/gperf installed. Code changes were contained in previous commit. Used following program versions (on fedora): bison (GNU Bison) 2.3 flex 2.5.33 GNU gperf 3.0.2 Cc: Adrian Bunk <bunk@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
2007-10-12kconfig: syntax cleanup - drop support for "depends/requires/def_boolean"Adrian Bunk2-13/+0
Remove the following redundant and never or rarely used kconfig syntax: - "def_boolean" (same as "def_bool") - "requires" (same as "depends on") - "depends" (same as "depends on") This patch contains the code changes and Kconfig updates. The shipped files are in next patch to let actual codechange stand out.

2007-10-12kbuild: fix directory traversal bugSam Ravnborg1-3/+3
Previously kbuild choked over the following: obj-y += ../../../arch/i386/kernel/bootflag.o This has resulted in some rather ugly workarounds in current x86_64 tree. This patch fixes kbuild to allow the above and enable potential cleanups in x86_64 and maybe in other places. Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

2007-10-12kbuild: __extension__ support in genksyms (fix unknown CRC warning)Sam Ravnborg2-1/+5
Recently the __extension__ keyword has been introduced in the kernel. Teach genksyms about this keyword so it can generate correct CRC for exported symbols that uses a symbol marked __extension__. For now only the typedef variant: __extension__ typedef ... is supported. Later we may add more variants as needed. This patch contains the actual source file changes. The following patch will hold modifications to the generated files (*_shipped) and only after the second patch the fix has effect. Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
2007-10-12kbuild: fix genksyms MakefileSam Ravnborg1-2/+6

2007-10-12kbuild: scripts/ver_linux : correct printing of binutils versionJesper Juhl1-3/+1
Currently scripts/ver_linux prints "Binutils" or other random information for the version number in the "binutils" output line on some distributions. This patch corrects that. When I initially submitted a patch to correct that, I was not aware that the output from "ld -v" could differ as much as it turned out it can, so my original fix turned out to not cover all bases. This patch works correctly with all the different "ld -v" output that people posted in replys to my first patch, so it should be a clear win over what we have currently.
