2015-07-22Makefile: Force gzip and xz on module installJason A. Donenfeld
Running `make modules_install` ordinarily will overwrite existing modules. This is the desired behavior, and is how pretty much every other `make install` target works. However, if CONFIG_MODULE_COMPRESS is enabled, modules are passed through gzip and xz which then do the file writing. Both gzip and xz will error out if the file already exists, unless -f is passed. This patch adds -f so that the behavior is uniform. Signed-off-by: Jason A. Donenfeld <Jason@zx2c4.com> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.com>

Initialize the ARCH_* overrides before including the arch Makefile, to avoid picking up the values from the environment. The variables can still be overriden on the make command line, but this won't happen by accident. Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.com>

2015-07-06kbuild: Allow arch Makefiles to override {cpp,ld,c}flagsMichal Marek
Since commit a1c48bb1 (Makefile: Fix unrecognized cross-compiler command line options), the arch Makefile is included earlier by the main Makefile, preventing the arc architecture to set its -O3 compiler option. Since there might be more use cases for an arch Makefile to fine-tune the options, add support for ARCH_CPPFLAGS, ARCH_AFLAGS and ARCH_CFLAGS variables that are appended to the respective kbuild variables. The user still has the final say via the KCPPFLAGS, KAFLAGS and KCFLAGS variables.

2015-04-27Makefile: Fix detection of clang when cross-compilingPaul Cercueil
When the host's C compiler is clang, and when attempting to cross-compile Linux e.g. to MIPS with mipsel-linux-gcc, the Makefile would incorrectly detect the use of clang, which resulted in clang-specific flags being passed to mipsel-linux-gcc. This can be verified under Debian by installing the "clang" package, and then using it as the default compiler with: sudo update-alternatives --config cc This patch moves the detection of clang after the $(CC) variable is initialized to the name of the cross-compiler, so that the check applies to the cross-compiler and not the host's C compiler. v2: Move the detection of clang after the inclusion of the arch/*/Makefile (as they might set $(CROSS_COMPILE)) Signed-off-by: Paul Cercueil <paul@crapouillou.net> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>

.. after extensive statistical analysis of my G+ polling, I've come to the inescapable conclusion that internet polls are bad. Big surprise. But "Hurr durr I'ma sheep" trounced "I like online polls" by a 62-to-38% margin, in a poll that people weren't even supposed to participate in. Who can argue with solid numbers like that? 5,796 votes from people who can't even follow the most basic directions? In contrast, "v4.0" beat out "v3.20" by a slimmer margin of 56-to-44%, but with a total of 29,110 votes right now. Now, arguably, that vote spread is only about 3,200 votes, which is less than the almost six thousand votes that the "please ignore" poll got, so it could be considered noise. But hey, I asked, so I'll honor the votes.

2015-02-17scripts/gdb: add infrastructureJan Kiszka
This provides the basic infrastructure to load kernel-specific python helper scripts when debugging the kernel in gdb. The loading mechanism is based on gdb loading for <objfile>-gdb.py when opening <objfile>. Therefore, this places a corresponding link to the main helper script into the output directory that contains vmlinux. The main scripts will pull in submodules containing Linux specific gdb commands and functions. To avoid polluting the source directory with compiled python modules, we link to them from the object directory. Due to gdb.parse_and_eval and string redirection for gdb.execute, we depend on gdb >= 7.2. This feature is enabled via CONFIG_GDB_SCRIPTS.

2015-02-13kasan: add kernel address sanitizer infrastructureAndrey Ryabinin
Kernel Address sanitizer (KASan) is a dynamic memory error detector. It provides fast and comprehensive solution for finding use-after-free and out-of-bounds bugs. KASAN uses compile-time instrumentation for checking every memory access, therefore GCC > v4.9.2 required. v4.9.2 almost works, but has issues with putting symbol aliases into the wrong section, which breaks kasan instrumentation of globals. This patch only adds infrastructure for kernel address sanitizer. It's not available for use yet. The idea and some code was borrowed from [1]. Basic idea: The main idea of KASAN is to use shadow memory to record whether each byte of memory is safe to access or not, and use compiler's instrumentation to check the shadow memory on each memory access. Address sanitizer uses 1/8 of the memory addressable in kernel for shadow memory and uses direct mapping with a scale and offset to translate a memory address to its corresponding shadow address. Here is function to translate address to corresponding shadow address: unsigned long kasan_mem_to_shadow(unsigned long addr) { return (addr >> KASAN_SHADOW_SCALE_SHIFT) + KASAN_SHADOW_OFFSET; } where KASAN_SHADOW_SCALE_SHIFT = 3. So for every 8 bytes there is one corresponding byte of shadow memory. The following encoding used for each shadow byte: 0 means that all 8 bytes of the corresponding memory region are valid for access; k (1 <= k <= 7) means that the first k bytes are valid for access, and other (8 - k) bytes are not; Any negative value indicates that the entire 8-bytes are inaccessible. Different negative values used to distinguish between different kinds of inaccessible memory (redzones, freed memory) (see mm/kasan/kasan.h). To be able to detect accesses to bad memory we need a special compiler. Such compiler inserts a specific function calls (__asan_load*(addr), __asan_store*(addr)) before each memory access of size 1, 2, 4, 8 or 16. These functions check whether memory region is valid to access or not by checking corresponding shadow memory. If access is not valid an error printed. Historical background of the address sanitizer from Dmitry Vyukov: "We've developed the set of tools, AddressSanitizer (Asan), ThreadSanitizer and MemorySanitizer, for user space. We actively use them for testing inside of Google (continuous testing, fuzzing, running prod services). To date the tools have found more than 10'000 scary bugs in Chromium, Google internal codebase and various open-source projects (Firefox, OpenSSL, gcc, clang, ffmpeg, MySQL and lots of others): [2] [3] [4]. The tools are part of both gcc and clang compilers. We have not yet done massive testing under the Kernel AddressSanitizer (it's kind of chicken and egg problem, you need it to be upstream to start applying it extensively). To date it has found about 50 bugs. Bugs that we've found in upstream kernel are listed in [5]. We've also found ~20 bugs in out internal version of the kernel. Also people from Samsung and Oracle have found some. [...] As others noted, the main feature of AddressSanitizer is its performance due to inline compiler instrumentation and simple linear shadow memory. User-space Asan has ~2x slowdown on computational programs and ~2x memory consumption increase. Taking into account that kernel usually consumes only small fraction of CPU and memory when running real user-space programs, I would expect that kernel Asan will have ~10-30% slowdown and similar memory consumption increase (when we finish all tuning). I agree that Asan can well replace kmemcheck. We have plans to start working on Kernel MemorySanitizer that finds uses of unitialized memory. Asan+Msan will provide feature-parity with kmemcheck. As others noted, Asan will unlikely replace debug slab and pagealloc that can be enabled at runtime. Asan uses compiler instrumentation, so even if it is disabled, it still incurs visible overheads. Asan technology is easily portable to other architectures. Compiler instrumentation is fully portable. Runtime has some arch-dependent parts like shadow mapping and atomic operation interception. They are relatively easy to port." Comparison with other debugging features: ======================================== KMEMCHECK: - KASan can do almost everything that kmemcheck can. KASan uses compile-time instrumentation, which makes it significantly faster than kmemcheck. The only advantage of kmemcheck over KASan is detection of uninitialized memory reads. Some brief performance testing showed that kasan could be x500-x600 times faster than kmemcheck: $ netperf -l 30 MIGRATED TCP STREAM TEST from 0.0.0.0 (0.0.0.0) port 0 AF_INET to localhost (127.0.0.1) port 0 AF_INET Recv Send Send Socket Socket Message Elapsed Size Size Size Time Throughput bytes bytes bytes secs. 10^6bits/sec no debug: 87380 16384 16384 30.00 41624.72 kasan inline: 87380 16384 16384 30.00 12870.54 kasan outline: 87380 16384 16384 30.00 10586.39 kmemcheck: 87380 16384 16384 30.03 20.23 - Also kmemcheck couldn't work on several CPUs. It always sets number of CPUs to 1. KASan doesn't have such limitation. DEBUG_PAGEALLOC: - KASan is slower than DEBUG_PAGEALLOC, but KASan works on sub-page granularity level, so it able to find more bugs. SLUB_DEBUG (poisoning, redzones): - SLUB_DEBUG has lower overhead than KASan. - SLUB_DEBUG in most cases are not able to detect bad reads, KASan able to detect both reads and writes. - In some cases (e.g. redzone overwritten) SLUB_DEBUG detect bugs only on allocation/freeing of object. KASan catch bugs right before it will happen, so we always know exact place of first bad read/write.

2015-01-29ftrace: allow architectures to specify ftrace compile optionsHeiko Carstens
If the kernel is compiled with function tracer support the -pg compile option is passed to gcc to generate extra code into the prologue of each function. This patch replaces the "open-coded" -pg compile flag with a CC_FLAGS_FTRACE makefile variable which architectures can override if a different option should be used for code generation.
