2014-12-13usr/Kconfig: make initrd compression algorithm selection not expertAndi Kleen1-12/+12
The kernel has support for (nearly) every compression algorithm known to man, each to handle some particular microscopic niche. Unfortunately all of these always get compiled in if you want to support INITRDs, and can be only disabled when CONFIG_EXPERT is set. I don't see why I need to set EXPERT just to properly configure the initrd compression algorithms, and not always include every possible algorithm Usually the initrd is just compressed with gzip anyways, at least that's true on all distributions I use. Remove the dependencies for initrd compression on CONFIG_EXPERT. Make the various options just default y, which should be good enough to not break any previous configuration.

Commit 9ba4bcb64589 ("initramfs: read CONFIG_RD_ variables for initramfs compression") removed the users of the various INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_* Kconfig symbols. So since v3.13 the entire "Built-in initramfs compression mode" choice is a set of knobs connected to nothing. The entire choice can safely be removed.

2013-11-13initramfs: read CONFIG_RD_ variables for initramfs compressionP J P1-9/+14
When expert configuration option(CONFIG_EXPERT) is enabled, menuconfig offers a choice of compression algorithm to compress initial ramfs image; This choice is stored into CONFIG_RD_* variables. But usr/Makefile uses earlier INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_* macros to build initial ramfs file. Since none of them is defined, resulting 'initramfs_data.cpio' file remains un-compressed. This patch updates the Makefile to use CONFIG_RD_* variables and adds support for LZ4 compression algorithm. Also updates the 'gen_initramfs_list.sh' script to check whether a selected compression command is accessible or not. And fall-back to default gzip(1) compression when it is not.

2013-11-13gen_init_cpio: avoid NULL pointer dereference and rework env expandingMichal Nazarewicz1-18/+9
getenv() may return NULL if given environment variable does not exist which leads to NULL dereference when calling strncat. Besides that, the environment variable name was copied to a temporary env_var buffer, but this copying can be avoided by simply using the input string. Lastly, the whole loop can be greatly simplified by using the snprintf function instead of the playing with strncat. By the way, the current implementation allows a recursive variable expansion, as in: $ echo 'out ${A} out ' | A='a ${B} a' B=b /tmp/a out a b a out I'm assuming this is just a side effect and not a conscious decision (especially as this may lead to infinite loop), but I didn't want to change this behaviour without consulting. If the current behaviour is deamed incorrect, I'll be happy to send a patch without recursive processing.

Fix possible overflow of the buffer used for expanding environment variables when building file list. In the extremely unlikely case of an attacker having control over the environment variables visible to gen_init_cpio, control over the contents of the file gen_init_cpio parses, and gen_init_cpio was built without compiler hardening, the attacker can gain arbitrary execution control via a stack buffer overflow. $ cat usr/crash.list file foo ${BIG}${BIG}${BIG}${BIG}${BIG}${BIG} 0755 0 0 $ BIG=$(perl -e 'print "A" x 4096;') ./usr/gen_init_cpio usr/crash.list *** buffer overflow detected ***: ./usr/gen_init_cpio terminated This also replaces the space-indenting with tabs.

2011-01-20kconfig: rename CONFIG_EMBEDDED to CONFIG_EXPERTDavid Rientjes1-9/+9
The meaning of CONFIG_EMBEDDED has long since been obsoleted; the option is used to configure any non-standard kernel with a much larger scope than only small devices. This patch renames the option to CONFIG_EXPERT in init/Kconfig and fixes references to the option throughout the kernel. A new CONFIG_EMBEDDED option is added that automatically selects CONFIG_EXPERT when enabled and can be used in the future to isolate options that should only be considered for embedded systems (RISC architectures, SLOB, etc). Calling the option "EXPERT" more accurately represents its intention: only expert users who understand the impact of the configuration changes they are making should enable it.

2011-01-13decompressors: add boot-time XZ supportLasse Collin2-1/+22
This implements the API defined in <linux/decompress/generic.h> which is used for kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. This patch together with the first patch is enough for XZ-compressed initramfs and initrd; XZ-compressed kernel will need arch-specific changes. The buffering requirements described in decompress_unxz.c are stricter than with gzip, so the relevant changes should be done to the arch-specific code when adding support for XZ-compressed kernel. Similarly, the heap size in arch-specific pre-boot code may need to be increased (30 KiB is enough). The XZ decompressor needs memmove(), memeq() (memcmp() == 0), and memzero() (memset(ptr, 0, size)), which aren't available in all arch-specific pre-boot environments. I'm including simple versions in decompress_unxz.c, but a cleaner solution would naturally be nicer. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

In usr/gen_init_cpio.c::cpio_mkfile() a call to stat() is made based on pathname, subsequently the file is open()'ed and then the value of the initial stat() call is used to allocate a buffer. This is not safe since the file may change between the call to stat() and the call to open(). Safer to just open() the file and then do fstat() using the filedescriptor returned by open.

On little-endian (like x86) this doesn matter, but on a big-endian machine the 32-bit reads will see the (zero) high bits. Only mips, s390, and score set CONFIG_32BIT for 32-bit builds, so fix it for all other 32-bit arches by inverting the logic and testing for CONFIG_64BIT, which should be defined on all 64-bit arches.

2010-09-29initramfs: fix initramfs size calculationHendrik Brueckner1-5/+11
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.

2008-12-03kbuild: gen_init_cpio expands shell variables in file namesSally, Gene1-1/+27
Modify gen_init_cpio so that lines that specify files can contain what looks like a shell variable that's expanded during processing. For example: file /sbin/kinit ${RFS_BASE}/usr/src/klibc/kinit/kinit 0755 0 0 given RFS_BASE is "/some/directory" in the environment would be expanded to file /sbin/kinit /some/directory/usr/src/klibc/kinit/kinit 0755 0 0 If several environment variables appear in a line, they are all expanded with processing happening from left to right. Undefined variables expand to a null string. Syntax errors stop processing, letting the existing error handling show the user offending line. This patch helps embedded folks who frequently create several RFS directories and then switch between them as they're tuning an initramfs.

2007-02-11[PATCH] usr/gen_init_cpio.c: support for hard linksLuciano Rocha1-36/+86
Extend usr/gen_init_cpio.c "file" entry, adding support for hard links. Previous format: file <name> <location> <mode> <uid> <gid> New format: file <name> <location> <mode> <uid> <gid> [<hard links>] The hard links specification is optional, keeping the previous behaviour. All hard links are defined sequentially in the resulting cpio and the file data is present only in the last link. This is the behaviour of GNU's cpio and is supported by the kernel initramfs extractor.

2007-02-11[PATCH] disable init/initramfs.cJean-Paul Saman1-1/+1
The file init/initramfs.c is always compiled and linked in the kernel vmlinux even when BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INITRD are disabled and the system isn't using any form of an initramfs or initrd. In this situation the code is only used to unpack a (static) default initial rootfilesystem. The current init/initramfs.c code. usr/initramfs_data.o compiles to a size of ~15 kbytes. Disabling BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INTRD shrinks the kernel code size with ~60 Kbytes. This patch avoids compiling in the code and data for initramfs support if CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not defined. Instead of the initramfs code and data it uses a small routine in init/noinitramfs.c to setup an initial static default environment for mounting a rootfilesystem later on in the kernel initialisation process. The new code is: 164 bytes of size. The patch is separated in two parts: 1) doesn't compile initramfs code when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set 2) changing all plaforms vmlinux.lds.S files to not reserve an area of PAGE_SIZE when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set.

2006-11-25[PATCH] initramfs: handle more than one source dir or file listThomas Chou1-1/+1
Fix bug 7401. Handle more than one source dir or file list to the initramfs gen scripts. The Kconfig help for INITRAMFS_SOURCE claims that you can specify multiple space-separated sources in order to allow unprivileged users to build an image. There are two bugs in the current implementation that prevent this from working. First, we pass "file1 dir2" to the gen_initramfs_list.sh script, which it obviously can't open. Second, gen_initramfs_list.sh -l outputs multiple definitions for deps_initramfs -- one for each argument.

2006-08-07kbuild: do not try to build content of initramfsSam Ravnborg1-0/+3
When a file supplied via CONFIG_INITRAMFS pointed to a file for which kbuild had a rule to compile it (foo.c => foo.o) then kbuild would compile the file before adding the file to the initramfs. Teach make that files included in initramfs shall not be updated by adding an 'empty command'. (See "Using Empty Commands" in info make). Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

2006-04-11kbuild: rebuild initramfs if content of initramfs changesSam Ravnborg1-54/+37
initramfs.cpio.gz being build in usr/ and included in the kernel was not rebuild when the included files changed. To fix this the following was done: - let gen_initramfs.sh generate a list of files and directories included in the initramfs - gen_initramfs generate the gzipped cpio archive so we could simplify the kbuild file (Makefile) - utilising the kbuild infrastructure so when uid/gid root mapping changes the initramfs will be rebuild With this change we have a much more robust initramfs generation.
