m68k: Wire up clone3() syscall
the adjustment made is entirely a function of TLS_ABOVE_TP and
TP_OFFSET. aside from avoiding repetition of the TP_OFFSET value and
arithmetic, this change makes pthread_arch.h independent of the
definition of struct __pthread from pthread_impl.h. this in turn will
allow inclusion of pthread_arch.h to be moved to the top of
pthread_impl.h so that it can influence the definition of the
previously, arch files were very inconsistent about the type used for
the thread pointer. this change unifies the new __get_tp interface to
always use uintptr_t, which is the most correct when performing
arithmetic that may involve addresses outside the actual pointed-to
object (due to TP_OFFSET).
the only part of TP_ADJ that was not uniquely determined by
TLS_ABOVE_TP was the 0x7000 adjustment used mainly on mips and powerpc
a number of users performing seccomp filtering have requested use of
the new individual syscall numbers for socket syscalls, rather than
the legacy multiplexed socketcall, since the latter has the arguments
all in memory where they can't participate in filter decisions.
previously, some archs used the multiplexed socketcall if it was
historically all that was available, while other archs used the
separate syscalls. the intent was that the latter set only include
archs that have "always" had separate socket syscalls, at least going
back to linux 2.6.0. however, at least powerpc, powerpc64, and sh were
wrongly included in this set, and thus socket operations completely
failed on old kernels for these archs.
with the changes made here, the separate syscalls are always
preferred, but fallback code is compiled for archs that also define
SYS_socketcall. two such archs, mips (plain o32) and microblaze,
define SYS_socketcall despite never having needed it, so it's now
undefined by their versions of syscall_arch.h to prevent inclusion of
useless fallback code.
some archs, where the separate syscalls were only added after the
addition of SYS_accept4, lack SYS_accept. because socket calls are
always made with zeros in the unused argument positions, it suffices
to just use SYS_accept4 to provide a definition of SYS_accept, and
this is done to make happy the macro machinery that concatenates the
socket call name onto __SC_ and SYS_.
signal 7 is SIGEMT on Linux mips* ABI according to the man pages and
kernel. it's not clear where the wrong name came from but it dates
back to original mips commit.
on all mips variants, Linux did (and maybe still does) have some
syscall return paths that wrongly return both the error flag in r7 and
a negated error code in r2. in particular this happened for at least
some causes of ENOSYS.
add an extra check to only negate the error code if it's positive to
bug report and concept for patch by Andreas Dröscher.
commit 4221f154ff29ab0d6be1e7beaa5ea2d1731bc58e added the r7
constraint apparently out of a misunderstanding of the breakage it was
addressing, and did so because the asm was in a shared macro used by
all the __syscallN inline functions. now "+r" is used in the output
section for the forms 4-argument and up, so having it in input is
redundant, and the forms with 0-3 arguments don't need it as an input
the r2 constraint is kept because without it most gcc versions (seems
to be all prior to 9.x) fail to honor the output register binding for
r2. this seems to be a variant of gcc bug #87733.
both the r7 and r2 input constraints look useless, but the r2 one was
a quiet workaround for gcc bug 87733, which affects all modern
versions prior to 9.x, so it's kept and documented.
exactly revert commit 604f8d3d8b08ee4f548de193050ef93a7753c2e0 which
was wrong; it caused a major regression on Linux versions prior to
2.6.36. old kernels did not properly preserve r2 across syscall
restart, and instead restarted with the instruction right before
syscall, imposing a contract that the previous instruction must load
r2 from an immediate or a register (or memory) not clobbered by the
this extends commit 5a105f19b5aae79dd302899e634b6b18b3dcd0d6, removing
timer[fd]_settime and timer[fd]_gettime. the timerfd ones are likely
to have been used in software that started using them before it could
rely on libc exposing functions.
this extends commit 5a105f19b5aae79dd302899e634b6b18b3dcd0d6, removing
clock_settime, clock_getres, clock_nanosleep, and settimeofday.
some nontrivial number of applications have historically performed
direct syscalls for these operations rather than using the public
functions. such usage is invalid now that time_t is 64-bit and these
syscalls no longer match the types they are used with, and it was
already harmful before (by suppressing use of vdso).
since syscall() has no type safety, incorrect usage of these syscalls
can't be caught at compile-time. so, without manually inspecting or
running additional tools to check sources, the risk of such errors
slipping through is high.
this patch renames the syscalls on 32-bit archs to clock_gettime32 and
gettimeofday_time32, so that applications using the original names
will fail to build without being fixed.
note that there are a number of other syscalls that may also be unsafe
to use directly after the time64 switchover, but (1) these are the
main two that seem to be in widespread use, and (2) most of the others
continue to have valid usage with a null timeval/timespec argument, as
the argument is an optional timeout or similar.
the syscall numbers were reserved in v5.3 but not wired up on mips, see

MIPS: Wire up clone3 syscall
mips application specific isa extensions were previously not exported
in hwcaps so userspace could not apply optimized code at runtime.

arch: wire-up pidfd_open()
linux commit 32fcb426ec001cb6d5a4a195091a8486ea77e2df
pid: add pidfd_open()
now that all 32-bit archs have 64-bit time_t (and suseconds_t), the
arch-provided _Int64 macro (long or long long, as appropriate) can be
used to define them, and arch-specific definitions are no longer
now that all 32-bit archs have 64-bit time types, the values for the
time-related socket option macros can be treated as universal for
32-bit archs. the sys/socket.h mechanism for this predates
arch/generic and is instead in the top-level header.
x32, which does not use the new time64 values of the macros, already
has its own overrides, so this commit does not affect it.
this commit preserves ABI fully for existing interface boundaries
between libc and libc consumers (applications or libraries), by
retaining existing symbol names for the legacy 32-bit interfaces and
redirecting sources compiled against the new headers to alternate
symbol names. this does not necessarily, however, preserve the
pairwise ABI of libc consumers with one another; where they use
time_t-derived types in their interfaces with one another, it may be
necessary to synchronize updates with each other.
the intent is that ABI resulting from this commit already be stable
and permanent, but it will not be officially so until a release is
made. changes to some header-defined types that do not play any role
in the ABI between libc and its consumers may still be subject to
mechanically, the changes made by this commit for each 32-bit arch are
- _REDIR_TIME64 is defined to activate the symbol redirections in
- COMPAT_SRC_DIRS is defined in arch.mak to activate build of ABI
compat shims to serve as definitions for the original symbol names
- time_t and suseconds_t definitions are changed to long long (64-bit)
- IPC_STAT definition is changed to add the IPC_TIME64 bit (0x100),
triggering conversion of semid_ds, shmid_ds, and msqid_ds split
low/high time bits into new time_t members
- structs semid_ds, shmid_ds, msqid_ds, and stat are modified to add
new 64-bit time_t/timespec members at the end, maintaining existing
layout of other members.
- socket options (SO_*) and ioctl (sockios) command macros are
redefined to use the kernel's "_NEW" values.
in addition, on archs where vdso clock_gettime is used, the
VDSO_CGT_SYM macro definition in syscall_arch.h is changed to use a
new time64 vdso function if available, and a new VDSO_CGT32_SYM macro
is added for use as fallback on kernels lacking time64.
these structures can now be defined generically in terms of endianness
and long size. previously, the 32-bit archs all shared a common
definition from the generic bits header, and each 64-bit arch had to
repeat the 64-bit version, with endian conditionals if the arch had
variants of each endianness.
I would prefer getting rid of the preprocessor conditionals for
padding and instead using unnamed bitfield members, like commit
9b2921bea1d5017832e1b45d1fd64220047a9802 did for struct timespec.
however, at present sendmsg, recvmsg, and recvmmsg need access to the
padding members by name to zero them. this could perhaps be cleaned up
in the future.
policy has long been that these definitions are purely a function of
whether long/pointer is 32- or 64-bit, and that they are not allowed
to vary per-arch. move the definition to the shared alltypes.h.in
fragment, using integer constant expressions in terms of sizeof to
vary the array dimensions appropriately. I'm not sure whether this is
more or less ugly than using preprocessor conditionals and two sets of
definitions here, but either way is a lot less ugly than repeating the
same thing for every arch.
LLONG_MAX is uniform for all archs we support and plenty of header and
code level logic assumes it is, so it does not make sense for limits.h
bits mechanism to pretend it's variable.
LONG_BIT can be defined in terms of LONG_MAX; there's no reason to put
it in bits.
by moving LONG_MAX definition to __LONG_MAX in alltypes.h and moving
LLONG_MAX out of bits, there are now no plain-C limits that are
defined in the bits header, so the bits header only needs to be
included in the POSIX or extended profiles. this allows the feature
test macro logic to be removed from the bits header, facilitating a
long-term goal of getting such logic out of bits.
having __LONG_MAX in alltypes.h will allow further generalization of
archs without a constant PAGESIZE no longer need bits/limits.h at all.
building on commit 97d35a552ec5b6ddf7923dd2f9a8eb973526acea,
__BYTE_ORDER is now available wherever alltypes.h is included. since
reloc.h is only used from src/internal/dynlink.h, it can be assumed
that __BYTE_ORDER is exposed. reloc.h is not permitted to be included
in other contexts, and generally, like most arch headers, lacks
inclusion guards that would allow such usage. the mips64 version
mistakenly included such guards; they are removed for consistency.
this change is motivated by the intersection of several factors.
presently, despite being a nonstandard header, endian.h is exposing
the unprefixed byte order macros and functions only if _BSD_SOURCE or
_GNU_SOURCE is defined. this is to accommodate use of endian.h from
other headers, including bits headers, which need to define structure
layout in terms of endianness. with time64 switch-over, even more
headers will need to do this.
at the same time, the resolution of Austin Group issue 162 makes
endian.h a standard header for POSIX-future, requiring that it expose
the unprefixed macros and the functions even in standards-conforming
profiles. changes to meet this new requirement would break existing
internal usage of endian.h by causing it to violate namespace where
instead, have the arch's alltypes.h define __BYTE_ORDER, either as a
fixed constant or depending on the right arch-specific predefined
macros for determining endianness. explicit literals 1234 and 4321 are
used instead of __LITTLE_ENDIAN and __BIG_ENDIAN so that there's no
danger of getting the wrong result if a macro is undefined and
implicitly evaluates to 0 at the preprocessor level.
the powerpc (32-bit) bits/endian.h being removed had logic for varying
endianness, but our powerpc arch has never supported that and has
always been big-endian-only. this logic is not carried over to the new
__BYTE_ORDER definition in alltypes.h.
now that commit f7f1079796abc6f97c69521d2334e9c7d3945dd8 removed the
legacy i386 conditional definition, va_list is in no way
arch-specific, and has no reason to be in the future. move it to the
shared part of alltypes.h.in
analogous to commit ddc7c4f936c7a90781072f10dbaa122007e939d0 for
mips64 and n32, remove the hack to load the syscall number into $2 via
asm, and use a constraint to let the compiler load it instead.
now, only $4, $5, and $6 are potential input-only registers. $2 is
always input and output, and $7 is both when it's an argument,
otherwise output-only. previously, $7 was treated as an input (with a
"1" constraint matching its output position) even when it was not an
input, which was arguably undefined behavior (asm input from
indeterminate value). this is corrected.
as before, $8, $9, and $10 are conditionally input-output registers
for 5-, 6-, and 7-argument syscalls. their role in input is carrying
in the values that will be stored on the stack for arguments 5-7.
their role in output is carrying back whatever the kernel has
clobbered them with, so that the compiler cannot assume they still
contain the input values.
mips r6 (an incompatible isa from traditional mips) removes the hi and
lo registers used for mul/div results. older gcc versions accepted
them in the clobber list for asm, but their presence is incorrect and
breaks on later versions.
in the process of fixing this, the clobber list for 32-bit mips
syscalls has been deduplicated via a macro like on mips64 and n32.
new mount api syscalls were added, same numers on all targets, see

otherwise, 32-bit archs that could otherwise share the generic
bits/ipc.h would need to duplicate the struct ipc_perm definition,
obscuring the fact that it's the same. sysvipc is not widely used and
these headers are not commonly included, so there is no performance
gain to be had by limiting the number of indirectly included files
files with the existing time32 definition of IPC_STAT are added to all
current 32-bit archs now, so that when it's changed the change will
show up as a change rather than addition of a new file where it's less
obvious that the value is changing vs the generic one that was used
without this, the SO_RCVTIMEO and SO_SNDTIMEO socket options would
stop working on pre-5.1 kernels after time_t is switched to 64-bit and
their values are changed to the new time64 versions.
new code is written such that it's statically unreachable on 64-bit
archs, and on existing 32-bit archs until the macro values are changed
to activate 64-bit time_t.
various padding fields in the generic bits/sem.h were defined in terms
of time_t as a cheap hack standing in for "kernel long", to allow x32
to use the generic version of the file. this was a really bad idea, as
it ended up getting copied into lots of arch-specific versions of the
bits file, and is a blocker to changing time_t to 64-bit on 32-bit
this commit adds an x32-specific version of the header, and changes
padding type back from time_t to long (currently the same type on all
archs but x32) in the generic header and all the others the hack got
now that we have a kstat structure decoupled from the public struct
stat, we can just use the broken kernel structures directly and let
the code in fstatat do the translation.
presently, all archs/ABIs have struct stat matching the kernel
stat type, except mips/mipsn32/mips64 which do conversion hacks in
syscall_arch.h to work around bugs in the kernel type. this patch
completely decouples them and adds a translation step to the success
path of fstatat. at present, this is just a gratuitous copying, but it
opens up multiple possibilities for future support for 64-bit time_t
on 32-bit archs and for cleaned-up/unified ABIs.
for clarity, the mips hacks are not yet removed in this commit, so the
mips kstat structs still correspond to the output of the hacks in
their syscall_arch.h files, not the raw kernel type. a subsequent
commit will fix this.
Commit 3517d74a5e04a377192d1f4882ad6c8dc22ce69a changed the token in
sys/ioctl.h from 0x01 to 1, so bits/termios.h no longer matches. Revert
the bits/termios.h change to keep the headers in sync.
This reverts commit 9eda4dc69c33852c97c6f69176bf45ffc80b522f.
syscall numbers are now synced up across targets (starting from 403 the
numbers are the same on all targets other than an arch specific offset)

for semop: only semtimedop got added), the new semctl, shmctl, msgctl

commit 788d5e24ca19c6291cebd8d1ad5b5ed6abf42665 exposed the breakage
at build time by removing support for 7-argument syscalls; however,
the external __syscall function provided for mips before did not pass
a 7th argument from the stack, so the behavior was just silently
the OABI passes these on the stack, using the convention that their
position on the stack is as if the first four arguments (in registers)
also had stack slots. originally this was deemed too awkward to do
inline, falling back to external __syscall, but it's not that bad and
now that external __syscall is being removed, it's necessary.
io_pgetevents is new in linux commit
rseq is new in linux commit
this will allow the compiler to cache and reuse the result, meaning we
no longer have to take care not to load it more than once for the sake
of archs where the load may be expensive.
depends on commit 1c84c99913bf1cd47b866ed31e665848a0da84a2 for
correctness, since otherwise the compiler could hoist loads during
stage 3 of dynamic linking before the initial thread-pointer setup.
these were overlooked in the declarations overhaul work because they
are not properly declared, and the current framework even allows their
declared types to vary by arch. at some point this should be cleaned
up, but I'm not sure what the right way would be.
this cleans up what had become widespread direct inline use of "GNU C"
style attributes directly in the source, and lowers the barrier to
increased use of hidden visibility, which will be useful to recovering
some of the efficiency lost when the protected visibility hack was
dropped in commit dc2f368e565c37728b0d620380b849c3a1ddd78f, especially
on archs where the PLT ABI is costly.
sys/ptrace.h is target specific, use bits/ptrace.h to add target
specific macro definitions.
these macros are kept in the generic sys/ptrace.h even though some
targets don't support them:
so no macro definition got removed in this patch on any target. only
s390x has a numerically conflicting macro definition (PTRACE_SINGLEBLOCK).
the PT_ aliases follow glibc headers, otherwise the definitions come
from linux uapi headers except ones that are skipped in glibc and
there is no real kernel support (s390x PTRACE_*_AREA) or need special
type definitions (mips PTRACE_*_WATCH_*) or only relevant for linux
2.4 compatibility (PTRACE_OLDSETOPTIONS).

In TLS variant I the TLS is above TP (or above a fixed offset from TP)
but on some targets there is a reserved gap above TP before TLS starts.
This matters for the local-exec tls access model when the offsets of
TLS variables from the TP are hard coded by the linker into the
executable, so the libc must compute these offsets the same way as the
linker. The tls offset of the main module has to be
If there is no TLS in the main module then the gap can be ignored
since musl does not use it and the tls access models of shared
libraries are not affected.
The previous setup only worked if (tls_align & -GAP_ABOVE_TP) == 0
(i.e. TLS did not require large alignment) because the gap was
treated as a fixed offset from TP. Now the TP points at the end
of the pthread struct (which is aligned) and there is a gap above
it (which may also need alignment).
The fix required changing TP_ADJ and __pthread_self on affected
targets (aarch64, arm and sh) and in the tlsdesc asm the offset to
access the dtv changed too.
the output delay features (NL*, CR*, TAB*, BS*, and VT*) are
XSI-shaded. VT* is in the V* namespace reservation but the rest need
to be suppressed in base POSIX namespace.
unfortunately this change introduces feature test macro checks into
another bits header. at some point these checks should be simplified
by having features.h handle the "FTM X implies Y" relationships.
