2010-08-06crypto: testmgr - Fix test disabling optionHerbert Xu
This patch fixes a serious bug in the test disabling patch where it can cause an spurious load of the cryptomgr module even when it's compiled in. It also negates the test disabling option so that its absence causes tests to be enabled. The Kconfig option is also now behind EMBEDDED. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2010-06-03crypto: testmgr - add an option to disable cryptoalgos' self-testsAlexander Shishkin
By default, CONFIG_CRYPTO_MANAGER_TESTS will be enabled and thus self-tests will still run, but it is now possible to disable them to gain some time during bootup. Signed-off-by: Alexander Shishkin <virtuoso@slind.org> Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2009-07-07crypto: api - Add new template create functionHerbert Xu
This patch introduces the template->create function intended to replace the existing alloc function. The intention is for create to handle the registration directly, whereas currently the caller of alloc has to handle the registration. This allows type-specific code to be run prior to registration.

2009-06-02crypto: testmgr - Dynamically allocate xbuf and axbufHerbert Xu
We currently allocate temporary memory that is used for testing statically. This renders the testing engine non-reentrant. As algorithms may nest, i.e., one may construct another in order to carry out a part of its operation, this is unacceptable. For example, it has been reported that an AEAD implementation allocates a cipher in its setkey function, which causes it to fail during testing as the temporary memory is overwritten. This patch replaces the static memory with dynamically allocated buffers. We need a maximum of 16 pages so this slightly increases the chances of an algorithm failing due to memory shortage. However, as testing usually occurs at registration, this shouldn't be a big problem. Reported-by: Shasi Pulijala <spulijala@amcc.com> Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-02-18crypto: testmgr - Test skciphers with no IVsHerbert Xu
As it is an skcipher with no IV escapes testing altogether because we only test givcipher objects. This patch fixes the bypass logic to test these algorithms. Conversely, we're currently testing nivaead algorithms with IVs, which would have deadlocked had it not been for the fact that no nivaead algorithms have any test vectors. This patch also fixes that case. Both fixes are ugly as hell, but this ugliness should hopefully disappear once we move them into the per-type code (i.e., the AEAD test would live in aead.c and the skcipher stuff in ablkcipher.c).

2008-08-29crypto: cryptomgr - Test ciphers using ECBHerbert Xu
As it is we only test ciphers when combined with a mode. That means users that do not invoke a mode of operations may get an untested cipher. This patch tests all ciphers using the ECB mode so that simple cipher users such as ansi-cprng are also protected. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2008-08-29crypto: api - Use test infrastructureHerbert Xu
This patch makes use of the new testing infrastructure by requiring algorithms to pass a run-time test before they're made available to users. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2008-08-29crypto: cryptomgr - Add test infrastructureHerbert Xu
This patch moves the newly created alg_test infrastructure into cryptomgr. This shall allow us to use it for testing at algorithm registrations. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
