2015-09-11MODSIGN: fix a compilation warning in extract-certDavid Howells1-1/+1
Fix the following warning when compiling extract-cert: scripts/extract-cert.c: In function `write_cert': scripts/extract-cert.c:89:2: warning: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Wformat-security] ERR(!i2d_X509_bio(wb, x509), cert_dst); ^ whereby the ERR() macro is taking cert_dst as the format string. "%s" should be used as the format string as the path could contain special characters.

2015-09-10checkpatch: add constant comparison on left side testJoe Perches1-0/+29
"CONST <comparison> variable" checks like: if (NULL != foo) and while (0 < bar(...)) where a constant (or what appears to be a constant like an upper case identifier) is on the left of a comparison are generally preferred to be written using the constant on the right side like: if (foo != NULL) and while (bar(...) > 0) Add a test for this. Add a --fix option too, but only do it when the code is immediately surrounded by parentheses to avoid misfixing things like "(0 < bar() + constant)" Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Cc: Nicolas Morey Chaisemartin <nmorey@kalray.eu> Cc: Viresh Kumar <viresh.kumar@linaro.org> Cc: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

For people who only need binary kernel package, there is now bindeb-pkg target, same target also used to build the .deb files if built from the source package using dpkg-buildpackage. Generated source package will build the same kernel .config than what was available for make deb-pkg. The name of the source package can be set with KDEB_SOURCENAME enviroment variable. The source package is useful for GPL compliance, or for feeding to a automated debian package builder.

2015-08-28scripts: add stackdelta scriptRasmus Villemoes1-0/+59
This adds a simple perl script for reading two files as produced by the stackusage script and computing the changes in stack usage. For example: $ scripts/stackusage -o /tmp/old.su CC=gcc-4.7 -j8 fs/ext4/ $ scripts/stackusage -o /tmp/new.su CC=gcc-5.0 -j8 fs/ext4/ $ scripts/stackdelta /tmp/{old,new}.su | sort -k5,5g shows that gcc 5.0 generally produces less stack-hungry code than gcc 4.7. Obviously, the script can also be used for measuring the effect of commits, .config tweaks or whatnot.

2015-08-28scripts: add stackusage scriptRasmus Villemoes1-0/+33
The current checkstack.pl script has a few problems, stemming from the overly simplistic attempt at parsing objdump output with regular expressions: For example, on x86_64 it doesn't take the push instruction into account, making it consistently underestimate the real stack use, and it also doesn't capture stack pointer adjustments of exactly 128 bytes [1]. Since newer gcc (>= 4.6) knows about -fstack-usage, we might as well take the information straight from the horse's mouth. This patch introduces scripts/stackusage, which is a simple wrapper for running make with KCFLAGS set to -fstack-usage. Example use is scripts/stackusage -o out.su -j8 lib/ The script understands "-o foo" for writing to 'foo' and -h for a trivial help text; anything else is passed to make. Afterwards, we find all newly created .su files, massage them a little, sort by stack use and write the result to a single output file. Note that the function names printed by (at least) gcc 4.7 are sometimes useless. For example, the first three lines of out.su generated above are ./lib/decompress_bunzip2.c:155 get_next_block 448 static ./lib/decompress_unlzma.c:537 unlzma 336 static ./lib/vsprintf.c:616 8 304 static That function '8' is really the static symbol_string(), but it has been subject to 'interprocedural scalar replacement of aggregates', so its name in the object file is 'symbol_string.isra.8'. gcc 5.0 doesn't have this problem; it uses the full name as seen in the object file. [1] Since gcc encodes that by 48 83 c4 80 add $0xffffffffffffff80,%rsp and not 48 81 ec 80 00 00 00 sub $0x80,%rsp since -128 fits in an imm8.

2015-08-20genksyms: Duplicate function pointer type definitions segfaultRichard Yao1-0/+9
I noticed that genksyms will segfault when it sees duplicate function pointer type declaration when I placed the same function pointer definition in two separate headers in a local branch as an intermediate step of some refactoring. This can be reproduced by piping the following minimal test case into `genksyms -r /dev/null` or alternatively, putting it into a C file attempting a build: typedef int (*f)(); typedef int (*f)(); Attaching gdb to genksyms to understand this failure is useless without changing CFLAGS to emit debuginfo. Once you have debuginfo, you will find that the failure is that `char *s` was NULL and the program executed `while(*s)`. At which point, further debugging requires familiarity with compiler front end / parser development. What happens is that flex identifies the first instance of the token "f" as IDENT and the yacc parser adds it to the symbol table. On the second instance, flex will identify "f" as TYPE, which triggers an error case in the yacc parser. Given that TYPE would have been IDENT had it not been in the symbol table, the the segmentaion fault could be avoided by treating TYPE as IDENT in the affected rule. Some might consider placing identical function pointer type declarations in different headers to be poor style might consider a failure to be beneficial. However, failing through a segmentation fault makes the cause non-obvious and can waste the time of anyone who encounters it.

Update the shipped files generated by flex and gperf to support the explicit use of "---help---" and to emit warnings for unsupported characters on COMMAND tokens. As I could not find out which flex/gperf version was used to generate the previous version, I used flex 2.5.35 and gperf 3.0.4 from Ubuntu 14.04 - this also leads to the big number of changed lines in this patch.

2015-08-19kconfig: warn of unhandled characters in Kconfig commandsAndreas Ruprecht2-9/+12
In Kconfig, definitions of options take the following form: "<COMMAND> <PARAM> <PARAM> ...". COMMANDs and PARAMs are treated slightly different by the underlying parser. While commit 2e0d737fc76f ("kconfig: don't silently ignore unhandled characters") introduced a warning for unsupported characters around PARAMs, it does not cover situations where a COMMAND has additional characters before it. This change makes Kconfig emit a warning if superfluous characters are found before COMMANDs. As the 'help' statement sometimes is written as '---help---', the '-' character would now also be regarded as unhandled and generate a warning. To avoid that, '-' is added to the list of allowed characters, and the token '---help---' is included in the zconf.gperf file.
