2011-01-24module: show version information for built-in modules in sysfsDmitry Torokhov-11/+54
Currently only drivers that are built as modules have their versions shown in /sys/module/<module_name>/version, but this information might also be useful for built-in drivers as well. This especially important for drivers that do not define any parameters - such drivers, if built-in, are completely invisible from userspace. This patch changes MODULE_VERSION() macro so that in case when we are compiling built-in module, version information is stored in a separate section. Kernel then uses this data to create 'version' sysfs attribute in the same fashion it creates attributes for module parameters.

2010-08-11param: locking for kernel parametersRusty Russell-7/+26
There may be cases (most obviously, sysfs-writable charp parameters) where a module needs to prevent sysfs access to parameters. Rather than express this in terms of a big lock, the functions are expressed in terms of what they protect against. This is clearer, esp. if the implementation changes to a module-level or even param-level lock.

2010-08-11param: use free hook for charp (fix leak of charp parameters)Rusty Russell-2/+50
Instead of using a "I kmalloced this" flag, we keep track of the kmalloced strings and use that list to check if we need to kfree (in practice, the list is very short). This means that kparams can be const again, and plugs a leak. This is important for drivers/usb/gadget/nokia.c which gets modprobe/rmmod'ed frequently on the N9000.

2010-08-11param: use ops in struct kernel_param, rather than get and set fns directlyRusty Russell-28/+62
This is more kernel-ish, saves some space, and also allows us to expand the ops without breaking all the callers who are happy for the new members to be NULL. The few places which defined their own param types are changed to the new scheme (more which crept in recently fixed in following patches). Since we're touching them anyway, we change get() and set() to take a const struct kernel_param (which they really are). This causes some harmless warnings until we fix them (in following patches). To reduce churn, module_param_call creates the ops struct so the callers don't have to change (and casts the functions to reduce warnings). The modern version which takes an ops struct is called module_param_cb.

2009-10-29param: fix lots of bugs with writing charp params from sysfs, by leaking mem.Rusty Russell-9/+1
e180a6b7759a "param: fix charp parameters set via sysfs" fixed the case where charp parameters written via sysfs were freed, leaving drivers accessing random memory. Unfortunately, storing a flag in the kparam struct was a bad idea: it's rodata so setting it causes an oops on some archs. But that's not all: 1) module_param_array() on charp doesn't work reliably, since we use an uninitialized temporary struct kernel_param. 2) there's a fundamental race if a module uses this parameter and then it's changed: they will still access the old, freed, memory. The simplest fix (ie. for 2.6.32) is to never free the memory. This prevents all these problems, at cost of a memory leak. In practice, there are only 18 places where a charp is writable via sysfs, and all are root-only writable.

2009-09-25param: allow whitespace as kernel parameter separatorPeter Oberparleiter-3/+4
Some boot mechanisms require that kernel parameters are stored in a separate file which is loaded to memory without further processing (e.g. the "Load from FTP" method on s390). When such a file contains newline characters, the kernel parameter preceding the newline might not be correctly parsed (due to the newline being stuck to the end of the actual parameter value) which can lead to boot failures. This patch improves kernel command line usability in such a situation by allowing generic whitespace characters as separators between kernel parameters.

2009-03-31param: fix charp parameters set via sysfsRusty Russell-1/+25
Impact: fix crash on reading from /sys/module/.../ieee80211_default_rc_algo The module_param type "charp" simply sets a char * pointer in the module to the parameter in the commandline string: this is why we keep the (mangled) module command line around. But when set via sysfs (as about 11 charp parameters can be) this memory is freed on the way out of the write(). Future reads hit random mem. So we kstrdup instead: we have to check we're not in early commandline parsing, and we have to note when we've used it so we can reliably kfree the parameter when it's next overwritten, and also on module unload.

2008-10-22core_param() for genuinely core kernel parametersRusty Russell-7/+7
There are a lot of one-liner uses of __setup() in the kernel: they're cumbersome and not queryable (definitely not settable) via /sys. Yet it's ugly to simplify them to module_param(), because by default that inserts a prefix of the module name (usually filename). So, introduce a "core_param". The parameter gets no prefix, but appears in /sys/module/kernel/parameters/ (if non-zero perms arg). I thought about using the name "core", but that's more common than "kernel". And if you create a module called "kernel", you will die a horrible death. Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2008-10-22param: Fix duplicate module prefixesRusty Russell-120/+141
Instead of insisting each new module_param sysfs entry is unique, handle the case where it already exists (for builtin modules). The current code assumes that all identical prefixes are together in the section: true for normal uses, but not necessarily so if someone overrides MODULE_PARAM_PREFIX. More importantly, it's not true with the new "core_param()" code which uses "kernel" as a prefix. This simplifies the caller for the builtin case, at a slight loss of efficiency (we do the lookup every time to see if the directory exists).

2008-02-08Add new string functions strict_strto* and convert kernel params to use themYi Yang-10/+10
Currently, for every sysfs node, the callers will be responsible for implementing store operation, so many many callers are doing duplicate things to validate input, they have the same mistakes because they are calling simple_strtol/ul/ll/uul, especially for module params, they are just numeric, but you can echo such values as 0x1234xxx, 07777888 and 1234aaa, for these cases, module params store operation just ignores succesive invalid char and converts prefix part to a numeric although input is acctually invalid. This patch tries to fix the aforementioned issues and implements strict_strtox serial functions, kernel/params.c uses them to strictly validate input, so module params will reject such values as 0x1234xxxx and returns an error: write error: Invalid argument Any modules which export numeric sysfs node can use strict_strtox instead of simple_strtox to reject any invalid input.

2007-12-22Modules: fix memory leak of module namesGreg Kroah-Hartman-0/+10
Due to the change in kobject name handling, the module kobject needs to have a null release function to ensure that the name it previously set will be properly cleaned up. All of this wierdness goes away in 2.6.25 with the rework of the kobject name and cleanup logic, but this is required for 2.6.24. Thanks to Alexey Dobriyan for finding the problem, and to Kay Sievers for pointing out the simple way to fix it after I tried many complex ways.

2007-11-14fix param_sysfs_builtin name length checkJan Kiszka-9/+6
Commit faf8c714f4508207a9c81cc94dafc76ed6680b44 caused a regression: parameter names longer than MAX_KBUILD_MODNAME will now be rejected, although we just need to keep the module name part that short. This patch restores the old behaviour while still avoiding that memchr is called with its length parameter larger than the total string length.

2007-07-11sysfs: kill unnecessary attribute->ownerTejun Heo-1/+0
sysfs is now completely out of driver/module lifetime game. After deletion, a sysfs node doesn't access anything outside sysfs proper, so there's no reason to hold onto the attribute owners. Note that often the wrong modules were accounted for as owners leading to accessing removed modules. This patch kills now unnecessary attribute->owner. Note that with this change, userland holding a sysfs node does not prevent the backing module from being unloaded. For more info regarding lifetime rule cleanup, please read the following message. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/510293 (tweaked by Greg to not delete the field just yet, to make it easier to merge things properly.)

2007-02-16Driver core: let request_module() send a /sys/modules/kmod/-ueventKay Sievers-0/+1
On recent systems, calls to /sbin/modprobe are handled by udev depending on the kind of device the kernel has discovered. This patch creates an uevent for the kernels internal request_module(), to let udev take control over the request, instead of forking the binary directly by the kernel. The direct execution of /sbin/modprobe can be disabled by setting: /sys/module/kmod/mod_request_helper (/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe) to an empty string, the same way /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug is disabled on an udev system.
