2014-04-07kconfig: make allnoconfig disable options behind EMBEDDED and EXPERTJosh Triplett1-0/+1
"make allnoconfig" exists to ease testing of minimal configurations. Documentation/SubmitChecklist includes a note to test with allnoconfig. This helps catch missing dependencies on common-but-not-required functionality, which might otherwise go unnoticed. However, allnoconfig still leaves many symbols enabled, because they're hidden behind CONFIG_EMBEDDED or CONFIG_EXPERT. For instance, allnoconfig still has CONFIG_PRINTK and CONFIG_BLOCK enabled, so drivers don't typically get build-tested with those disabled. To address this, introduce a new Kconfig option "allnoconfig_y", used on symbols which only exist to hide other symbols. Set it on CONFIG_EMBEDDED (which then selects CONFIG_EXPERT). allnoconfig will then disable all the symbols hidden behind those. Signed-off-by: Josh Triplett <> Tested-by: Paul E.

Naturally, there are places where vfs rules don't fit and nasty hacks, such as credential switching or lock dance interleaving inode mutex and cgroup_mutex with object serial number comparison thrown in to decide whether the operation is actually necessary, needed to be employed.

2014-02-11cgroup: convert to kernfsTejun Heo1-0/+1
cgroup filesystem code was derived from the original sysfs implementation which was heavily intertwined with vfs objects and locking with the goal of re-using the existing vfs infrastructure. That experiment turned out rather disastrous and sysfs switched, a long time ago, to distributed filesystem model where a separate representation is maintained which is queried by vfs. Unfortunately, cgroup stuck with the failed experiment all these years and accumulated even more problems over time. Locking and object lifetime management being entangled with vfs is probably the most egregious. vfs is never designed to be misused like this and cgroup ends up jumping through various convoluted dancing to make things work. Even then, operations across multiple cgroups can't be done safely as it'll deadlock with rename locking. Recently, kernfs is separated out from sysfs so that it can be used by users other than sysfs. This patch converts cgroup to use kernfs, which will bring the following benefits. * Separation from vfs internals. Locking and object lifetime management is contained in cgroup proper making things a lot simpler. This removes significant amount of locking convolutions, hairy object lifetime rules and the restriction on multi-cgroup operations. * Can drop a lot of code to implement filesystem interface as most are provided by kernfs. * Proper "severing" semantics, which allows controllers to not worry about lingering file accesses after offline. While the preceding patches did as much as possible to make the transition less painful, large part of the conversion has to be one discrete step making this patch rather large. The rest of the commit message lists notable changes in different areas. Overall ------- * vfs constructs replaced with kernfs ones. cgroup->dentry w/ ->kn, cgroupfs_root->sb w/ ->kf_root. * All dentry accessors are removed. Helpers to map from kernfs constructs are added. * All vfs plumbing around dentry, inode and bdi removed. * cgroup_mount() now directly looks for matching root and then proceeds to create a new one if not found. Synchronization and object lifetime ----------------------------------- * vfs inode locking removed. Among other things, this removes the need for the convolution in cgroup_cfts_commit(). Future patches will further simplify it. * vfs refcnting replaced with cgroup internal ones. cgroup->refcnt, cgroupfs_root->refcnt added. cgroup_put_root() now directly puts root->refcnt and when it reaches zero proceeds to destroy it thus merging cgroup_put_root() and the former cgroup_kill_sb(). Simliarly, cgroup_put() now directly schedules cgroup_free_rcu() when refcnt reaches zero. * Unlike before, kernfs objects don't hold onto cgroup objects. When cgroup destroys a kernfs node, all existing operations are drained and the association is broken immediately. The same for cgroupfs_roots and mounts. * All operations which come through kernfs guarantee that the associated cgroup is and stays valid for the duration of operation; however, there are two paths which need to find out the associated cgroup from dentry without going through kernfs - css_tryget_from_dir() and cgroupstats_build(). For these two, kernfs_node->priv is RCU managed so that they can dereference it under RCU read lock. File and directory handling --------------------------- * File and directory operations converted to kernfs_ops and kernfs_syscall_ops. * xattrs is implicitly supported by kernfs. No need to worry about it from cgroup. This means that "xattr" mount option is no longer necessary. A future patch will add a deprecated warning message when sane_behavior. * When cftype->max_write_len > PAGE_SIZE, it's necessary to make a private copy of one of the kernfs_ops to set its atomic_write_len. cftype->kf_ops is added and cgroup_init/exit_cftypes() are updated to handle it. * cftype->lockdep_key added so that kernfs lockdep annotation can be per cftype. * Inidividual file entries and open states are now managed by kernfs. No need to worry about them from cgroup. cfent, cgroup_open_file and their friends are removed. * kernfs_nodes are created deactivated and kernfs_activate() invocations added to places where creation of new nodes are committed. * cgroup_rmdir() uses kernfs_[un]break_active_protection() for self-removal. v2: - Li pointed out in an earlier patch that specifying "name=" during mount without subsystem specification should succeed if there's an existing hierarchy with a matching name although it should fail with -EINVAL if a new hierarchy should be created. Prior to the conversion, this used by handled by deferring failure from NULL return from cgroup_root_from_opts(), which was necessary because root was being created before checking for existing ones. Note that cgroup_root_from_opts() returned an ERR_PTR() value for error conditions which require immediate mount failure. As we now have separate search and creation steps, deferring failure from cgroup_root_from_opts() is no longer necessary. cgroup_root_from_opts() is updated to always return ERR_PTR() value on failure. - The logic to match existing roots is updated so that a mount attempt with a matching name but different subsys_mask are rejected. This was handled by a separate matching loop under the comment "Check for name clashes with existing mounts" but got lost during conversion. Merge the check into the main search loop. - Add __rcu __force casting in RCU_INIT_POINTER() in cgroup_destroy_locked() to avoid the sparse address space warning reported by kbuild test bot. Maybe we want an explicit interface to use kn->priv as RCU protected pointer? v3: Make CONFIG_CGROUPS select CONFIG_KERNFS. v4: Rebased on top of 0ab02ca8f887 ("cgroup: protect modifications to cgroup_idr with cgroup_mutex").

2013-11-22cgroup, memcg: move cgroup_event implementation to memcgTejun Heo1-2/+1
cgroup_event is way over-designed and tries to build a generic flexible event mechanism into cgroup - fully customizable event specification for each user of the interface. This is utterly unnecessary and overboard especially in the light of the planned unified hierarchy as there's gonna be single agent. Simply generating events at fixed points, or if that's too restrictive, configureable cadence or single set of configureable points should be enough. Thankfully, memcg is the only user and gets to keep it. Replacing it with something simpler on sane_behavior is strongly recommended. This patch moves cgroup_event and "cgroup.event_control" implementation to mm/memcontrol.c. Clearing of events on cgroup destruction is moved from cgroup_destroy_locked() to mem_cgroup_css_offline(), which shouldn't make any noticeable difference. cgroup_css() and __file_cft() are exported to enable the move; however, this will soon be reverted once the event code is updated to be memcg specific. Note that "cgroup.event_control" will now exist only on the hierarchy with memcg attached to it. While this change is visible to userland, it is unlikely to be noticeable as the file has never been meaningful outside memcg. Aside from the above change, this is pure code relocation. v2: Per Li Zefan's comments, init/Kconfig updated accordingly and poll.h inclusion moved from cgroup.c to memcontrol.c.

git:// Pull security subsystem updates from James Morris: "In this patchset, we finally get an SELinux update, with Paul Moore taking over as maintainer of that code. Also a significant update for the Keys subsystem, as well as maintenance updates to Smack, IMA, TPM, and Apparmor" and since I wanted to know more about the updates to key handling, here's the explanation from David Howells on that: "Okay. There are a number of separate bits. I'll go over the big bits and the odd important other bit, most of the smaller bits are just fixes and cleanups. If you want the small bits accounting for, I can do that too. (1) Keyring capacity expansion. KEYS: Consolidate the concept of an 'index key' for key access KEYS: Introduce a search context structure KEYS: Search for auth-key by name rather than target key ID Add a generic associative array implementation. KEYS: Expand the capacity of a keyring Several of the patches are providing an expansion of the capacity of a keyring. Currently, the maximum size of a keyring payload is one page. Subtract a small header and then divide up into pointers, that only gives you ~500 pointers on an x86_64 box. However, since the NFS idmapper uses a keyring to store ID mapping data, that has proven to be insufficient to the cause. Whatever data structure I use to handle the keyring payload, it can only store pointers to keys, not the keys themselves because several keyrings may point to a single key. This precludes inserting, say, and rb_node struct into the key struct for this purpose. I could make an rbtree of records such that each record has an rb_node and a key pointer, but that would use four words of space per key stored in the keyring. It would, however, be able to use much existing code. I selected instead a non-rebalancing radix-tree type approach as that could have a better space-used/key-pointer ratio. I could have used the radix tree implementation that we already have and insert keys into it by their serial numbers, but that means any sort of search must iterate over the whole radix tree. Further, its nodes are a bit on the capacious side for what I want - especially given that key serial numbers are randomly allocated, thus leaving a lot of empty space in the tree. So what I have is an associative array that internally is a radix-tree with 16 pointers per node where the index key is constructed from the key type pointer and the key description. This means that an exact lookup by type+description is very fast as this tells us how to navigate directly to the target key. I made the data structure general in lib/assoc_array.c as far as it is concerned, its index key is just a sequence of bits that leads to a pointer. It's possible that someone else will be able to make use of it also. FS-Cache might, for example. (2) Mark keys as 'trusted' and keyrings as 'trusted only'. KEYS: verify a certificate is signed by a 'trusted' key KEYS: Make the system 'trusted' keyring viewable by userspace KEYS: Add a 'trusted' flag and a 'trusted only' flag KEYS: Separate the kernel signature checking keyring from module signing These patches allow keys carrying asymmetric public keys to be marked as being 'trusted' and allow keyrings to be marked as only permitting the addition or linkage of trusted keys. Keys loaded from hardware during kernel boot or compiled into the kernel during build are marked as being trusted automatically. New keys can be loaded at runtime with add_key(). They are checked against the system keyring contents and if their signatures can be validated with keys that are already marked trusted, then they are marked trusted also and can thus be added into the master keyring. Patches from Mimi Zohar make this usable with the IMA keyrings also. (3) Remove the date checks on the key used to validate a module signature. X.509: Remove certificate date checks It's not reasonable to reject a signature just because the key that it was generated with is no longer valid datewise - especially if the kernel hasn't yet managed to set the system clock when the first module is loaded - so just remove those checks. (4) Make it simpler to deal with additional X.509 being loaded into the kernel. KEYS: Load *.x509 files into kernel keyring KEYS: Have make canonicalise the paths of the X.509 certs better to deduplicate The builder of the kernel now just places files with the extension ".x509" into the kernel source or build trees and they're concatenated by the kernel build and stuffed into the appropriate section. (5) Add support for userspace kerberos to use keyrings. KEYS: Add per-user_namespace registers for persistent per-UID kerberos caches KEYS: Implement a big key type that can save to tmpfs Fedora went to, by default, storing kerberos tickets and tokens in tmpfs. We looked at storing it in keyrings instead as that confers certain advantages such as tickets being automatically deleted after a certain amount of time and the ability for the kernel to get at these tokens more easily. To make this work, two things were needed: (a) A way for the tickets to persist beyond the lifetime of all a user's sessions so that cron-driven processes can still use them. The problem is that a user's session keyrings are deleted when the session that spawned them logs out and the user's user keyring is deleted when the UID is deleted (typically when the last log out happens), so neither of these places is suitable. I've added a system keyring into which a 'persistent' keyring is created for each UID on request. Each time a user requests their persistent keyring, the expiry time on it is set anew. If the user doesn't ask for it for, say, three days, the keyring is automatically expired and garbage collected using the existing gc. All the kerberos tokens it held are then also gc'd.

2013-11-17Revert "init/Kconfig: add option to disable kernel compression"H. Peter Anvin1-7/+1
This reverts commit 69f0554ec261fd686ac7fa1c598cc9eb27b83a80. This patch breaks randconfig on at least the x86-64 architecture, and most likely on others. There is work underway to support uncompressed kernels in a generic way, but it looks like it will amount to rewriting the support from scratch; see the LKML thread in the Link: for info.

2013-09-30vtime: Add HAVE_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN KconfigKevin Hilman1-0/+1
With VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN, cputime_t becomes 64-bit. In order to use that feature, arch code should be audited to ensure there are no races in concurrent read/write of cputime_t. For example, reading/writing 64-bit cputime_t on some 32-bit arches may require multiple accesses for low and high value parts, so proper locking is needed to protect against concurrent accesses. Therefore, add CONFIG_HAVE_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN which arches can enable after they've been audited for potential races. This option is automatically enabled on 64-bit platforms.

2013-08-15modules: do not depend on kconfig to set 'modules' option to symbol MODULESYann E. MORIN1-0/+1
Currently, the MODULES symbol is special-cased in different places in the kconfig language. For example, if no symbol is defined to enable tristates, then kconfig looks up for a symbol named 'MODULES', and forces the 'modules' option onto that symbol. This causes problems as such: - since MODULES is special-cased, reading the configuration with KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG set will forcibly set MODULES to be 'valid' (ie. it has a valid value), when no such value was previously set. So MODULES defaults to 'n' unless it is present in KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG - other third-party projects may decide that 'MODULES' plays a different role for them This has been exposed by cset #cfa98f2e: kconfig: do not override symbols already set and reported by Stephen in: As suggested by Sam, we explicitly define the MODULES symbol to be the tristate-enabler. This will allow us to drop special-casing of MODULES in the kconfig language, later. (Note: this patch is not a fix to Stephen's issue, just a first step).

Now CONTEXT_TRACKING_FORCE only stands for testing on archs that work on support for the context tracking while full dynticks can't be used yet due to unmet dependencies. It simulates a system where all CPUs are full dynticks so that RCU user extended quiescent states and dynticks cputime accounting can be tested on the given arch.
