2015-09-10kexec: split kexec_load syscall from kexec core codeDave Young1-2/+2
There are two kexec load syscalls, kexec_load another and kexec_file_load. kexec_file_load has been splited as kernel/kexec_file.c. In this patch I split kexec_load syscall code to kernel/kexec.c. And add a new kconfig option KEXEC_CORE, so we can disable kexec_load and use kexec_file_load only, or vice verse. The original requirement is from Ted Ts'o, he want kexec kernel signature being checked with CONFIG_KEXEC_VERIFY_SIG enabled. But kexec-tools use kexec_load syscall can bypass the checking. Vivek Goyal proposed to create a common kconfig option so user can compile in only one syscall for loading kexec kernel. KEXEC/KEXEC_FILE selects KEXEC_CORE so that old config files still work. Because there's general code need CONFIG_KEXEC_CORE, so I updated all the architecture Kconfig with a new option KEXEC_CORE, and let KEXEC selects KEXEC_CORE in arch Kconfig. Also updated general kernel code with to kexec_load syscall. [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] Signed-off-by: Dave Young <dyoung@redhat.com> Cc: Eric W.

2014-08-08initramfs: support initramfs that is bigger than 2GiBYinghai Lu1-11/+11
Now with 64bit bzImage and kexec tools, we support ramdisk that size is bigger than 2g, as we could put it above 4G. Found compressed initramfs image could not be decompressed properly. It turns out that image length is int during decompress detection, and it will become < 0 when length is more than 2G. Furthermore, during decompressing len as int is used for inbuf count, that has problem too. Change len to long, that should be ok as on 32 bit platform long is 32bits. Tested with following compressed initramfs image as root with kexec. gzip, bzip2, xz, lzma, lzop, lz4. run time for populate_rootfs(): size name Nehalem-EX Westmere-EX Ivybridge-EX 9034400256 root_img : 26s 24s 30s 3561095057 root_img.lz4 : 28s 27s 27s 3459554629 root_img.lzo : 29s 29s 28s 3219399480 root_img.gz : 64s 62s 49s 2251594592 root_img.xz : 262s 260s 183s 2226366598 root_img.lzma: 386s 376s 277s 2901482513 root_img.bz2 : 635s 599s Signed-off-by: Yinghai Lu <yinghai@kernel.org> Cc: "H.

2014-08-08initramfs: support initrd that is bigger than 2GiBYinghai Lu1-4/+32
When initrd (compressed or not) is used, kernel report data corrupted with /dev/ram0. The root cause: During initramfs checking, if it is initrd, it will be transferred to /initrd.image with sys_write. sys_write only support 2G-4K write, so if the initrd ram is more than that, /initrd.image will not complete at all. Add local xwrite to loop calling sys_write to workaround the problem. Also need to use xwrite in write_buffer() to handle: image is uncompressed cpio and there is one big file (>2G) in it. unpack_to_rootfs ===> write_buffer ===> actions[]/do_copy At the same time, we don't need to worry about sys_read/sys_write in do_mounts_rd.c::crd_load. As decompressor will have fill/flush and local buffer that is smaller than 2G. Test with uncompressed initrd, and compressed ones with gz, bz2, lzma,xz, lzop.

2013-01-18init, block: try to load default elevator module early during bootTejun Heo1-1/+7
This patch adds default module loading and uses it to load the default block elevator. During boot, it's called right after initramfs or initrd is made available and right before control is passed to userland. This ensures that as long as the modules are available in the usual places in initramfs, initrd or the root filesystem, the default modules are loaded as soon as possible. This will replace the on-demand elevator module loading from elevator init path. v2: Fixed build breakage when !CONFIG_BLOCK. Reported by kbuild test robot.

2012-05-31init: disable sparse checking of the mount.o source filesH Hartley Sweeten1-3/+13
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.

2010-09-29initramfs: fix initramfs size calculationHendrik Brueckner1-5/+4
The size of a built-in initramfs is calculated in init/initramfs.c by "__initramfs_end - __initramfs_start". Those symbols are defined in the linker script include/asm-generic/vmlinux.lds.h: #define INIT_RAM_FS \ . = ALIGN(PAGE_SIZE); \ VMLINUX_SYMBOL(__initramfs_start) = .; \ *(.init.ramfs) \ VMLINUX_SYMBOL(__initramfs_end) = .; If the initramfs file has an odd number of bytes, the "__initramfs_end" symbol points to an odd address, for example, the symbols in the System.map might look like: 0000000000572000 T __initramfs_start 00000000005bcd05 T __initramfs_end <-- odd address At least on s390 this causes a problem: Certain s390 instructions, especially instructions for loading addresses (larl) or branch addresses must be on even addresses. The compiler loads the symbol addresses with the "larl" instruction. This instruction sets the last bit to 0 and, therefore, for odd size files, the calculated size is one byte less than it should be: 0000000000540a9c <populate_rootfs>: 540a9c: eb cf f0 78 00 24 stmg %r12,%r15,120(%r15), 540aa2: c0 10 00 01 8a af larl %r1,572000 <__initramfs_start> 540aa8: c0 c0 00 03 e1 2e larl %r12,5bcd04 <initramfs_end> (Instead of 5bcd05) ... 540abe: 1b c1 sr %r12,%r1 To fix the problem, this patch introduces the global variable __initramfs_size, which is calculated in the "usr/initramfs_data.S" file. The populate_rootfs() function can then use the start marker of the .init.ramfs section and the value of __initramfs_size for loading the initramfs. Because the start marker and size is sufficient, the __initramfs_end symbol is no longer needed and is removed.

2010-04-24initramfs: handle unrecognised decompressor when unpackingPhillip Lougher1-1/+2
The unpack routine fails to handle the decompress_method() returning unrecognised decompressor (compress_name == NULL). This results in the routine looping eventually oopsing on an out of bounds memory access. Note this bug is usually hidden, only triggering on trailing junk after one or more correct compressed blocks. The case of the compressed archive being complete junk is (by accident?) caught by the if (state != Reset) check because state is initialised to Start, but not updated due to the decompressor not having been called. Obviously if the junk is trailing a correctly decompressed buffer, state == Reset from the previous call to the decompressor.

2009-04-13initramfs: fix initramfs to work with hardlinked initRandy Robertson1-1/+2
Change cb6ff208076b5f434db1b8c983429269d719cef5 ("NOMMU: Support XIP on initramfs") seems to have broken booting from initramfs with /sbin/init being a hardlink. It seems like the logic required for XIP on nommu, i.e. ftruncate to reported cpio header file size (body_len) is broken for hardlinks, which have a reported size of 0, and the truncate thus nukes the contents of the file (in my case busybox), making boot impossible and ending with runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000 - and of course 0000 is not a valid binary format. My fix is to only call ftruncate if size is non-zero which fixes things for me, but I'm not certain whether this will break XIP for those files on nommu systems, although I would guess not.

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.

2009-01-08NOMMU: Support XIP on initramfsDavid Howells1-0/+1
Support XIP on files unpacked from the initramfs image on NOMMU systems. This simply requires the length of the file to be preset so that the ramfs fs can attempt to garner sufficient contiguous storage to store the file (NOMMU mmap can only map contiguous RAM). All the other bits to do XIP on initramfs files are present: (1) ramfs's truncate attempts to allocate a contiguous run of pages when a file is truncated upwards from nothing. (2) ramfs sets BDI on its files to indicate direct mapping is possible, and that its files can be mapped for read, write and exec. (3) NOMMU mmap() will use the above bits to determine that it can do XIP. Possibly this needs better controls, because it will _always_ try and do XIP. One disadvantage of this very simplistic approach is that sufficient space will be allocated to store the whole file, and not just the bit that would be XIP'd. To deal with this, though, the initramfs unpacker would have to be able to parse the file contents. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Acked-by: Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org>

2008-10-16initramfs: add option to preserve mtime from initramfs cpio imagesNye Liu1-0/+53
When unpacking the cpio into the initramfs, mtimes are not preserved by default. This patch adds an INITRAMFS_PRESERVE_MTIME option that allows mtimes stored in the cpio image to be used when constructing the initramfs. For embedded applications that run exclusively out of the initramfs, this is invaluable: When building embedded application initramfs images, its nice to know when the files were actually created during the build process - that makes it easier to see what files were modified when so we can compare the files that are being used on the image with the files used during the build process. This might help (for example) to determine if the target system has all the updated files you expect to see w/o having to check MD5s etc. In our environment, the whole system runs off the initramfs partition, and seeing the modified times of the shared libraries (for example) helps us find bugs that may have been introduced by the build system incorrectly propogating outdated shared libraries into the image. Similarly, many of the initializion/configuration files in /etc might be dynamically built by the build system, and knowing when they were modified helps us sanity check whether the target system has the "latest" files etc. Finally, we might use last modified times to determine whether a hot fix should be applied or not to the running ramfs.

2008-07-25inflate: refactor inflate malloc codeThomas Petazzoni1-20/+2
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().

Instead of using the malloc() and free() wrappers needed by the lib/inflate.c code for allocations, simply use kmalloc() and kfree() in the initramfs code. This is needed for a further lib/inflate.c-related cleanup patch that will remove the malloc() and free() functions. Take that opportunity to remove the useless kmalloc() return value cast.

2008-03-15ACPI: Remove ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_INITRD optionLinus Torvalds1-7/+1
This essentially reverts commit 71fc47a9adf8ee89e5c96a47222915c5485ac437 ("ACPI: basic initramfs DSDT override support"), because the code simply isn't ready. It did ugly things to the init sequence to populate the rootfs image early, but that just ended up showing other problems with the whole approach. The fact is, the VFS layer simply isn't initialized this early, and the relevant ACPI code should either run much later, or this shouldn't be done at all. For 2.6.25, we'll just pick the latter option. We can revisit this concept later if necessary.

2008-02-06ACPI: basic initramfs DSDT override supportMarkus Gaugusch1-1/+7
The basics of DSDT from initramfs. In case this option is selected, populate_rootfs() is called a bit earlier to have the initramfs content available during ACPI initialization. This is a very similar path to the one available at http://gaugusch.at/kernel.shtml but with some update in the documentation, default set to No and the change of populate_rootfs() the "Jeff Mahony way" (which avoids reading the initramfs twice).

2007-02-11[PATCH] Add retain_initrd boot optionMichael Neuling1-1/+16
Add retain_initrd option to control freeing of initrd memory after extraction. By default, free memory as previously. The first boot will need to hold a copy of the in memory fs for the second boot. This image can be large (much larger than the kernel), hence we can save time when the memory loader is slow. Also, it reduces the memory footprint while extracting the first boot since you don't need another copy of the fs.

It turns out that the "-c" option of cpio is highly unportable even between distros let alone unix variants, and may actually make the wrong type of cpio archive. I just wasted quite some time on this, and the kernel can detect this and warn about it (it's __init memory so it gets thrown away and thus there is no runtime overhead) Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Cc: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-05-15[PATCH] initramfs: fix CPIO hardlink checkMark Huang1-4/+4
Copy the filenames of hardlinks when inserting them into the hash, since the "name" pointer may point to scratch space (name_buf). Not doing so results in corruption if the scratch space is later overwritten: the wrong file may be hardlinked, or, if the scratch space contains garbage, the link will fail and a 0-byte file will be created instead.

2006-03-25[PATCH] BLK_DEV_INITRD: do not require BLK_DEV_RAM=yZdenek Pavlas1-0/+10
Initramfs initrd images do not need a ramdisk device, so remove this restriction in Kconfig. BLK_DEV_RAM=n saves about 13k on i386. Also without ramdisk device there's no need for "dry run", so initramfs unpacks much faster. People using cramfs, squashfs, or gzipped ext2/minix initrd images are probably smart enough not to turn off ramdisk support by accident.

2006-02-10[PATCH] kexec: fix in free initrd when overlapped with crashkernel regionHaren Myneni1-1/+23
It is possible that the reserved crashkernel region can be overlapped with initrd since the bootloader sets the initrd location. When the initrd region is freed, the second kernel memory will not be contiguous. The Kexec_load can cause an oops since there is no contiguous memory to write the second kernel or this memory could be used in the first kernel itself and may not be part of the dump. For example, on powerpc, the initrd is located at 36MB and the crashkernel starts at 32MB. The kexec_load caused panic since writing into non-allocated memory (after 36MB). We could see the similar issue even on other archs. One possibility is to move the initrd outside of crashkernel region. But, the initrd region will be freed anyway before the system is up. This patch fixes this issue and frees only regions that are not part of crashkernel memory in case overlaps. Signed-off-by: Haren Myneni <haren@us.ibm.com> Acked-by: "Eric W.

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!
