2015-09-10kstrto*: accept "-0" for signed conversionAlexey Dobriyan1-1/+1
strtol(3) et al accept "-0", so should we.

2014-01-23lib/kstrtox.c: remove redundant cleanupFelipe Contreras1-1/+0
We can't reach the cleanup code unless the flag KSTRTOX_OVERFLOW is not set, so there's not no point in clearing a bit that we know is not set.

2012-12-17kstrto*: add documentationEldad Zack1-0/+64
As Bruce Fields pointed out, kstrto* is currently lacking kerneldoc comments. This patch adds kerneldoc comments to common variants of kstrto*: kstrto(u)l, kstrto(u)ll and kstrto(u)int.

2012-03-07lib: reduce the use of module.h wherever possiblePaul Gortmaker1-1/+1
For files only using THIS_MODULE and/or EXPORT_SYMBOL, map them onto including export.h -- or if the file isn't even using those, then just delete the include. Fix up any implicit include dependencies that were being masked by module.h along the way. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>
2012-02-09Reduce the number of expensive division instructions done by _parse_integer()David Howells1-5/+13
_parse_integer() does one or two division instructions (which are slow) per digit parsed to perform the overflow check. Furthermore, these are particularly expensive examples of division instruction as the number of clock cycles required to complete them may go up with the position of the most significant set bit in the dividend: if (*res > div_u64(ULLONG_MAX - val, base)) which is as maximal as possible. Worse, on 32-bit arches, more than one of these division instructions may be required per digit. So, assuming we don't support a base of more than 16, skip the check if the top nibble of the result is not set at this point. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> [ Changed it to not dereference the pointer all the time - even if the compiler can and does optimize it away, the code just looks cleaner. And edited the top nybble test slightly to make the code generated on x86-64 better in the loop - test against a hoisted constant instead of shifting and testing the result ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2011-10-31lib/kstrtox: common code between kstrto*() and simple_strto*() functionsAlexey Dobriyan1-22/+53
Currently termination logic (\0 or \n\0) is hardcoded in _kstrtoull(), avoid that for code reuse between kstrto*() and simple_strtoull(). Essentially, make them different only in termination logic. simple_strtoull() (and scanf(), BTW) ignores integer overflow, that's a bug we currently don't have guts to fix, making KSTRTOX_OVERFLOW hack necessary. Almost forgot: patch shrinks code size by about ~80 bytes on x86_64.

2011-07-25lib: make _tolower() publicAndy Shevchenko1-5/+0
This function is required by *printf and kstrto* functions that are located in the different modules. This patch makes _tolower() public. However, it's good idea to not use the helper outside of mentioned functions.

2011-05-25lib: add kstrto*_from_user()Alexey Dobriyan1-0/+26
There is quite a lot of code which does copy_from_user() + strict_strto*() or simple_strto*() combo in slightly different ways. Before doing conversions all over tree, let's get final API correct. Enter kstrtoull_from_user() and friends. Typical code which uses them looks very simple: TYPE val; int rv; rv = kstrtoTYPE_from_user(buf, count, 0, &val); if (rv < 0) return rv; [use val] return count; There is a tiny semantic difference from the plain kstrto*() API -- the latter allows any amount of leading zeroes, while the former copies data into buffer on stack and thus allows leading zeroes as long as it fits into buffer. This shouldn't be a problem for typical usecase "echo 42 > /proc/x". The point is to make reading one integer from userspace _very_ simple and very bug free.

2011-03-22kstrto*: converting strings to integers done (hopefully) rightAlexey Dobriyan1-0/+227
1. simple_strto*() do not contain overflow checks and crufty, libc way to indicate failure. 2. strict_strto*() also do not have overflow checks but the name and comments pretend they do. 3. Both families have only "long long" and "long" variants, but users want strtou8() 4. Both "simple" and "strict" prefixes are wrong: Simple doesn't exactly say what's so simple, strict should not exist because conversion should be strict by default. The solution is to use "k" prefix and add convertors for more types. Enter kstrtoull() kstrtoll() kstrtoul() kstrtol() kstrtouint() kstrtoint() kstrtou64() kstrtos64() kstrtou32() kstrtos32() kstrtou16() kstrtos16() kstrtou8() kstrtos8() Include runtime testsuite (somewhat incomplete) as well. strict_strto*() become deprecated, stubbed to kstrto*() and eventually will be removed altogether. Use kstrto*() in code today! Note: on some archs _kstrtoul() and _kstrtol() are left in tree, even if they'll be unused at runtime. This is temporarily solution, because I don't want to hardcode list of archs where these functions aren't needed. Current solution with sizeof() and __alignof__ at least always works.
