      License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license · b2441318
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which
      makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license.
      By default all files without license information are under the default
      license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2.
      Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0'
      SPDX license identifier.  The SPDX identifier is a legally binding
      shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text.
      This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and
      Philippe Ombredanne.
      How this work was done:
      Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of
      the use cases:
       - file had no licensing information it it.
       - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it,
       - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information,
      Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases
      where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license
      had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords.
      The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to
      a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the
      output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX
      tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne.  Philippe prepared the
      base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files.
      The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files
      assessed.  Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner
      results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s)
      to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not
      immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was:
       - Files considered eligible had to be source code files.
       - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5
         lines of source
       - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5
      All documentation files were explicitly excluded.
      The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license
      identifiers to apply.
       - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was
         considered to have no license information in it, and the top level
         COPYING file license applied.
         For non */uapi/* files that summary was:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0                                              11139
         and resulted in the first patch in this series.
         If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH
         Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0".  Results of that was:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        930
         and resulted in the second patch in this series.
       - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one
         of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if
         any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in
         it (per prior point).  Results summary:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                       270
         GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      169
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause)    21
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    17
         LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      15
         GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       14
         ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    5
         LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       4
         LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT)              3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT)             1
         and that resulted in the third patch in this series.
       - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became
         the concluded license(s).
       - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a
         license but the other didn't, or they both detected different
         licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred.
       - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file
         resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and
         which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics).
       - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was
         confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
       - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier,
         the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later
         in time.
      In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the
      spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the
      source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation
      by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from
      FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners
      disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights.  The
      Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so
      they are related.
      Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets
      for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the
      files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks
      in about 15000 files.
      In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have
      copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the
      correct identifier.
      Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual
      inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch
      version early this week with:
       - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected
         license ids and scores
       - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+
         files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct
       - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license
         was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied
         SPDX license was correct
      This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction.  This
      worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the
      different types of files to be modified.
      These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg.  Thomas wrote a script to
      parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the
      format that the file expected.  This script was further refined by Greg
      based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to
      distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different
      comment types.)  Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to
      generate the patches.

      BUG: headers with BUG/BUG_ON etc. need linux/bug.h · 187f1882
      Paul Gortmaker authored
      If a header file is making use of BUG, BUG_ON, BUILD_BUG_ON, or any
      other BUG variant in a static inline (i.e. not in a #define) then
      that header really should be including <linux/bug.h> and not just
      expecting it to be implicitly present.
      We can make this change risk-free, since if the files using these
      headers didn't have exposure to linux/bug.h already, they would have
      been causing compile failures/warnings.

      elf coredump: add extended numbering support · 8d9032bb
      Daisuke HATAYAMA authored
      The current ELF dumper implementation can produce broken corefiles if
      program headers exceed 65535.  This number is determined by the number of
      vmas which the process have.  In particular, some extreme programs may use
      more than 65535 vmas.  (If you google max_map_count, you can find some
      users facing this problem.) This kind of program never be able to generate
      correct coredumps.
      This patch implements ``extended numbering'' that uses sh_info field of
      the first section header instead of e_phnum field in order to represent
      upto 4294967295 vmas.
      This is supported by
      AMD64-ABI(http://www.x86-64.org/documentation.html) and
      Of course, we are preparing patches for gdb and binutils.

      elf coredump: replace ELF_CORE_EXTRA_* macros by functions · 1fcccbac
      Daisuke HATAYAMA authored
      elf_core_dump() and elf_fdpic_core_dump() use #ifdef and the corresponding
      macro for hiding _multiline_ logics in functions.  This patch removes
      #ifdef and replaces ELF_CORE_EXTRA_* by corresponding functions.  For
      architectures not implemeonting ELF_CORE_EXTRA_*, we use weak functions in
      order to reduce a range of modification.
      This cleanup is for my next patches, but I think this cleanup itself is
      worth doing regardless of my firnal purpose.

      elf: fix multithreaded program core dumping on arm · a65e7bfc
      Hui Zhu authored
      Fix the multithread program core thread message error.
      This issue affects arches with neither has CORE_DUMP_USE_REGSET nor
      ELF_CORE_COPY_TASK_REGS, ARM is one of them.
      The thread message of core file is generated in elf_dump_thread_status.
      The register values is set by elf_core_copy_task_regs in this function.
      If an arch doesn't define ELF_CORE_COPY_TASK_REGS,
      elf_core_copy_task_regs() will do nothing.  Then the core file will not
      have the register message of thread.
      So add elf_core_copy_regs to set regiser values if ELF_CORE_COPY_TASK_REGS
      doesn't define.
      The following is how to reproduce this issue:
      cat 1.c
      #include <stdio.h>
      #include <pthread.h>
      #include <assert.h>
      void td1(void * i)
             while (1)
                     printf ("1\n");
                     sleep (1);
      void td2(void * i)
             while (1)
                     printf ("2\n");
                     sleep (1);
      main(int argc,char *argv[],char *envp[])
             pthread_t       t1,t2;
             pthread_create(&t1, NULL, (void*)td1, NULL);
             pthread_create(&t2, NULL, (void*)td2, NULL);
             sleep (10);
             return (0);
      arm-xxx-gcc -g -lpthread 1.c -o 1
      copy 1.c and 1 to a arm board.
      Goto this board.
      ulimit -c 1800000
      # ./1
      1: 1.c:37: main: Assertion `0' failed.
      Aborted (core dumped)
      Then you can get a core file.
      gdb 1 core.xxx
      Without the patch:
      (gdb) info threads
       3 process 909  0x00000000 in ?? ()
       2 process 908  0x00000000 in ?? ()
      * 1 process 907  0x4a6e2238 in raise () from /lib/libc.so.6
      You can found that the pc of 909 and 908 is 0x00000000.
      With the patch:
      (gdb) info threads
       3 process 885  0x4a749974 in nanosleep () from /lib/libc.so.6
       2 process 884  0x4a749974 in nanosleep () from /lib/libc.so.6
      * 1 process 883  0x4a6e2238 in raise () from /lib/libc.so.6
      The pc of 885 and 884 is right.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
