2013-11-13./Makefile: export initial ramdisk compression config optionP J P
Make menuconfig allows one to choose compression format of an initial ramdisk image. But this choice does not result in duly compressed ramdisk image. Because - $ make install - does not pass on the selected compression choice to the dracut(8) tool, which creates the initramfs file. dracut(8) generates the image with the default compression, ie. gzip(1). This patch exports the selected compression option to a sub-shell environment, so that it could be used by dracut(8) tool to generate appropriately compressed initramfs images. There isn't a straightforward way to pass on options to dracut(8) via positional parameters. Because it is indirectly invoked at the end of a $ make install sequence. # make install -> arch/$arch/boot/Makefile -> arch/$arch/boot/install.sh -> /sbing/installkernel ... -> /sbin/new-kernel-pkg ... -> /sbin/dracut ...

Make menuconfig allows one to choose compression format of an initial ramdisk image. But this choice does not result in duly compressed initial ramdisk image. Because - $ make install - does not pass on the selected compression choice to the dracut(8) tool, which creates the initramfs file. dracut(8) generates the image with the default compression, ie. gzip(1). If a user chose any other compression instead of gzip(1), it leads to a crash due to NULL pointer dereference in crd_load(), caused by a NULL function pointer returned by the 'decompress_method()' routine. Because the initramfs image is gzip(1) compressed, whereas the kernel knows only to decompress the chosen format and not gzip(1). This patch replaces the crash by an explicit panic() call with an appropriate error message. This shall prevent the kernel from eventually panicking in: init/do_mounts.c: mount_block_root() with -> panic("VFS: Unable to mount root fs on %s", b); [akpm@linux-foundation.org: mention that the problem is with the ramdisk, don't print known-to-be-NULL value] Signed-off-by: P J P <prasad@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2012-05-31init: disable sparse checking of the mount.o source filesH Hartley Sweeten
The init/mount.o source files produce a number of sparse warnings of the type: warning: incorrect type in argument 1 (different address spaces) expected char [noderef] <asn:1>*dev_name got char *name This is due to the syscalls expecting some of the arguments to be user pointers but they are being passed as kernel pointers. This is harmless but adds a lot of noise to a sparse build. To limit the noise just disable the sparse checking in the relevant source files, but still display a warning so that the user knows this has been done. Since the sparse checking has been disabled we can also remove the __user __force casts that are scattered thru the source.

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.

2009-01-14init: make initrd/initramfs decompression failure a KERN_EMERG eventH. Peter Anvin
Impact: More consistent behaviour, avoid policy in the kernel Upgrade/downgrade initrd/initramfs decompression failure from inconsistently a panic or a KERN_ALERT message to a KERN_EMERG event. It is, however, possible do design a system which can recover from this (using the kernel builtin code and/or the internal initramfs), which means this is policy, not a technical necessity. A good way to handle this would be to have a panic-level=X option, to force a panic on a printk above a certain level. That is a separate patch, however. Signed-off-by: H.

2009-01-04bzip2/lzma: config and initramfs support for bzip2/lzma decompressionAlain Knaff
Impact: New code for initramfs decompression, new features This is the second part of the bzip2/lzma patch The bzip patch is based on an idea by Christian Ludwig, includes support for compressing the kernel with bzip2 or lzma rather than gzip. Both compressors give smaller sizes than gzip. Lzma's decompresses faster than bzip2. It also supports ramdisks and initramfs' compressed using these two compressors. The functionality has been successfully used for a couple of years by the udpcast project This version applies to "tip" kernel 2.6.28 This part contains: - support for new compressions (bzip2 and lzma) in initramfs and old-style ramdisk - config dialog for kernel compression (but new kernel compressions not yet supported) Signed-off-by: Alain Knaff <alain@knaff.lu> Signed-off-by: H.

2008-10-16identify_ramdisk_image(): correct typo about return value in commentGeert Uytterhoeven
identify_ramdisk_image() returns 0 (not -1) if a gzipped ramdisk is found: if (buf[0] == 037 && ((buf[1] == 0213) || (buf[1] == 0236))) { printk(KERN_NOTICE "RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block %d\n", start_block); nblocks = 0; ^^^^^^^^^^^ goto done; } ... done: sys_lseek(fd, start_block * BLOCK_SIZE, 0); kfree(buf); return nblocks; ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Hence correct the typo in the comment, which has existed since the addition of compressed ramdisk support in 1.3.48.

2008-07-25inflate: refactor inflate malloc codeThomas Petazzoni
Inflate requires some dynamic memory allocation very early in the boot process and this is provided with a set of four functions: malloc/free/gzip_mark/gzip_release. The old inflate code used a mark/release strategy rather than implement free. This new version instead keeps a count on the number of outstanding allocations and when it hits zero, it resets the malloc arena. This allows removing all the mark and release implementations and unifying all the malloc/free implementations. The architecture-dependent code must define two addresses: - free_mem_ptr, the address of the beginning of the area in which allocations should be made - free_mem_end_ptr, the address of the end of the area in which allocations should be made. If set to 0, then no check is made on the number of allocations, it just grows as much as needed The architecture-dependent code can also provide an arch_decomp_wdog() function call. This function will be called several times during the decompression process, and allow to notify the watchdog that the system is still running. If an architecture provides such a call, then it must define ARCH_HAS_DECOMP_WDOG so that the generic inflate code calls arch_decomp_wdog(). Work initially done by Matt Mackall, updated to a recent version of the kernel and improved by me.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
