2006-03-25[PATCH] x86_64: Basic reorder infrastructureArjan van de Ven-0/+21
This patch puts the infrastructure in place to allow for a reordering of functions based inside the vmlinux. The general idea is that it is possible to put all "common" functions into the first 2Mb of the code, so that they are covered by one TLB entry. This as opposed to the current situation where a typical vmlinux covers about 3.5Mb (on x86-64) and thus 2 TLB entries. This is done by enabling the -ffunction-sections flag in gcc, which puts each function in its own ELF section, so that the linker can then order them in a way defined by the linker script. As per previous discussions, Linus said he wanted a "static" list for this, eg a list provided by the kernel tarbal, so that most people have the same ordering at least. A script is provided to create this list based on readprofile(1) output. The included list is provisional, and entirely biased on my own testbox and me running a few kernel compiles and some other things. I think that to get to a better list we need to invite people to submit their own profiles, and somehow add those all up and base the final list on that. I'm willing to do that effort if this is ends up being the prefered approach. Such an effort probably needs to be repeated like once a year or so to adopt to the changing nature of the kernel. Made it a CONFIG with default n because it increases link times dramatically. Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>

2006-03-06kbuild: change kbuild to not rely on incorrect GNU make behaviorPaul Smith-25/+52
The kbuild system takes advantage of an incorrect behavior in GNU make. Once this behavior is fixed, all files in the kernel rebuild every time, even if nothing has changed. This patch ensures kbuild works with both the incorrect and correct behaviors of GNU make. For more details on the incorrect behavior, see: Changes in this patch: - Keep all targets that are to be marked .PHONY in a variable, PHONY. - Add .PHONY: $(PHONY) to mark them properly. - Remove any $(PHONY) files from the $? list when determining whether targets are up-to-date or not.

2006-03-05kbuild: kill false positives from section mismatch warnings for powerpcSam Ravnborg-2/+7
Building an allmodconfig kernel for ppc64 revealed a number of false positives - originally reported by Andrew Morton. This patch removes most if not all false positives for ppc64: Section .opd The .opd section contains function descriptors at least for ppc64. So ignore it for .init.text (was ignored for .exit.text). See description of function descriptors here: Section .toc1 ppc64 places some static variables in .toc1 - ignore the. Section __bug_tabe BUG() and friends uses __bug_table. Ignore warnings from that section. Module parameters are placed in .data.rel for ppc64, for adjust pattern to match on section named .data* Tested with gcc: 3.4.0 and binutils Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <>

2006-02-27kbuild: small update of allnoconfig descriptionJesper Juhl-1/+1
'allnoconfig' is described by 'make help' as a "minimal config", that's not strictly correct. To be pedantic, a minimal config would be one where EMBEDDED was set to Y and most things therein disabled etc. Simply answering 'no' to all options does not give a minimal config. A better description of allnoconfig is that it answers all options with 'no'. This patch updates the description. Signed-off-by: Jesper Juhl <> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <>

2006-02-22kbuild: do not warn when unwind sections references .init/.exit sectionsSam Ravnborg-1/+17
Andrew Morton reported a number of false positives for ia64 - like these: WARNING: drivers/acpi/button.o - Section mismatch: reference to .init.text: from .IA_64.unwind.init.text after '' (at offset 0x0) WARNING: drivers/acpi/button.o - Section mismatch: reference to .exit.text: from .IA_64.unwind.exit.text after '' (at offset 0x0) WARNING: drivers/acpi/processor.o - Section mismatch: reference to .init.text: from .IA_64.unwind after '' (at offset 0x1e8) They are all false positives - or at least the .c code looks OK. It is not known why sometimes a section name is appended and sometimes not. Fix is to accept references from all sections that includes "unwind." in the name. Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <>

2006-02-19kbuild: fix mkmakefileJan Beulich-3/+5
With the current way of generating the Makefile in the output directory for builds outside of the source tree, specifying real targets (rather than phony ones) doesn't work in an already (partially) built tree, as the stub Makefile doesn't have any dependency information available. Thus, all targets where files may actually exist must be listed explicitly and, due to what I'd call a make misbehavior, directory targets must then also be special cased.

2006-02-19kbuild: consolidate command line escapingJan Beulich-25/+12
While the recent change to also escape # symbols when storing C-file compilation command lines was helpful, it should be in effect for all command lines, as much as the dollar escaping should be in effect for C-source compilation commands. Additionally, for better readability and maintenance, consolidating all the escaping (single quotes, dollars, and now sharps) was also desirable.

2006-02-19kbuild: check for section mismatch during modpost stageSam Ravnborg-0/+268
Section mismatch is identified as references to .init* sections from non .init sections. And likewise references to .exit.* sections outside .exit sections. .init.* sections are discarded after a module is initialized and references to .init.* sections are oops candidates. .exit.* sections are discarded when a module is built-in and thus references to .exit are also oops candidates. The checks were possible to do using 'make buildcheck' which called the two perl scripts: and This patch just moves the same functionality inside modpost and the scripts are then obsoleted. They will though be kept for a while so users can do double checks - but note that some .o files are skipped by the perl scripts so result is not 1:1. All credit for the concept goes to Keith Owens who implemented the original perl scrips - this patch just moves it to modpost. Compared to the perl script the implmentation in modpost will be run for each kernel build - thus catching the error much sooner, but the downside is that the individual .o file are not always identified.

2006-02-19kbuild: improved modversioning support for external modulesSam Ravnborg-52/+78
With following patch a second option is enabled to obtain symbol information from a second external module when a external module is build. The recommended approach is to use a common kbuild file but that may be impractical in certain cases. With this patch one can copy over a Module.symvers from one external module to make symbols (and symbol versions) available for another external module.
