2006-02-05[PATCH] kconfig: detect if -lintl is needed when linking conf,mconfRobb, Sam
On a system where libintl.h is present, but the NLS functionality is supplied by a separate library instead of the system C library, an attempt to "make config" or "make menuconfig" will fail with link errors, ex: scripts/kconfig/mconf.o:mconf.c:(.text+0xf63): undefined reference to `_libintl_gettext' This patch attempts to correct the problem by detecting whether or not NLS support requires linking with libintl.

2006-01-21kconfig: fix /dev/null breakageSam Ravnborg
While running "make menuconfig" and "make mrproper" some people experienced that /dev/null suddenly changed permissions or suddenly became a regular file. The main reason was that /dev/null was used as output to gcc in the script and gcc did some strange things with the output file; in this case /dev/null when it errorred out. Following patch implements a suggestion from Bryan O'Sullivan <> to use gcc Also the Makefile is adjusted to not resolve value of HOST_EXTRACFLAGS and HOST_LOADLIBES until they are actually used. This prevents us from calling gcc when running make *clean/mrproper Thanks to Eyal Lebedinsky <> and Jean Delvare <> for the first error reports. Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <> ---
2006-01-16kbuild: create .kernelrelease at *config stepSam Ravnborg
To enable 'make kernelrelease' earlier now create .kernelrelease when one of the *config targets are used. Also introduce KERNELVERSION - only user is kconfig. KERNELVERSION was needed to display kernel version in menuconfig - KERNELRELEASE is not valid until configuration has completed. kconfig files modified to use KERNELVERSION.

2006-01-15kconfig: get rid of stray a.o, support ncurseswSam Ravnborg

Also included support for ncursesw - so if present prefer that instead of ncurses. The order is now (first is preferred): 1) ncursesw 2) ncurses 3) curses The latter is to support SunOS.

Keith Ownes <> commented: For our future {in}sanity, add a comment that this is the ppc .opd section, not the ia64 .opd section. ia64 .opd should not point to discarded sections. Any idea why ppc .opd points to discarded sections when ia64 does not?

2006-01-06kbuild: Use git in scripts/setlocalversionRene Scharfe
Currently scripts/setlocalversion is a Perl script that tries to figure out the current git commit ID of a repo without using git. It also imports Digest::MD5 without using it and generally is too big for the small task it does. :] And it always reports a git ID, even when the HEAD is tagged -- this is a bug. This patch replaces it with a Bourne Shell script that uses git commands to do the same. I can't come up with a scenario where someone would use a git repo and refuse to install git core at the same time, so I think it's reasonable to assume git is available. The new script also reports uncommitted changes by adding -git_dirty to the version string. Obviously you can't see from that _what_ has been changed from the last commit, so it's more of a reminder that you forgot to commit something. The script is easily extensible: simply add a check for Mercurial (or whatever) below the git check. Note: the script doesn't print a newline char anymore. That's only because it was easier to implement it that way, not a feature (or bug). 'make kernelrelease' doesn't care.

2006-01-04[PATCH] Input: add modalias supportRusty Russell
Here's the patch for modalias support for input classes. It uses comma-separated numbers, and doesn't describe all the potential keys (no module currently cares, and that would make the strings huge). The changes to input.h are to move the definitions needed by file2alias outside __KERNEL__. I chose not to move those definitions to mod_devicetable.h, because there are so many that it might break compile of something else in the kernel. The rest is fairly straightforward.

2005-12-26kbuild: always run 'make silentoldconfig' when tree is cleanedSam Ravnborg
If the file .kconfig.d is missing then make sure to run 'make silentoldconfig', since we have no way to detect if a Kconfig file has been updated. -kconfig.d is created by kconfig and is removed as part of 'make clean' so the situation is likely to occur in reality.

2005-12-26kbuild: Fix genksyms handling of DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct foo_s *, bar);Robin Holt
This is a one-line change to parse.y. To take advantage of this the scripts/genksyms/*_shipped files needs to be rebuild - this is the next patch. When a .c file contains: DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct foo_s *, bar); the .cpp output looks like: __attribute__((__section__(".data.percpu"))) __typeof__(struct foo_s *) per_cpu__bar; With the existing parse.y, the value inside the paranthesis of __typeof__() does not evaluate as a type_specifier and therefore per_cpu__bar does not get assigned a type for genksyms which results in the EXPORT_PER_CPU_SYMBOL() not generating a CRC value. I have compared the Modules.symvers with and without this patch and for ia64's defconfig, the only change is: Before 0x00000000 per_cpu____sn_nodepda vmlinux After 0x9d3f3faa per_cpu____sn_nodepda vmlinux per_cpu____sn_nodepda was the original source of my problems.

2005-12-26kbuild: set correct KBUILD_MODNAME when using well known kernel symbols as ↵Ustyugov Roman
module names This patch fixes a problem when we use well known kernel symbols as module names. For example, if module source name is current.c, idle_stack.c or etc., we have a bad KBUILD_MODNAME value. For example, KBUILD_MODNAME will be "get_current()" instead of "current", or "(init_thread_union.stack)" instead of "idle_task". The trick is to define a stringify macro on the commandline - named KBUILD_STR for namespace reasons - and then to stringify the module name. There are a few uses of KBUILD_MODNAME throughout the tree but the usage is for debug and will not be harmed by this change so left untouched for now. While at it KBUILD_BASENAME was changed too. Any spinlock usage in the unix module would have created wrong section names without it. Usage in spinlock.h fixed so it no longer stringify KBUILD_BASENAME. Original patch from Ustyogov Roman - all bugs introduced by me. Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <>

2005-12-25kbuild: Fix crc-error warning on modulesLuke Yang
This is the patch for the following issue: In include/linux/module.h, "__crc_" and "__ksymtab_" are hard coded to be the prefix for some kinds of symbols (CRC symbol and ksymtab section). But in script /mod/modpost.c, MODULE_SYMBOL_PREFIX##"__crc_" is used as the prefix to search CRC symbols. So if an architecture (such as h8300 or Blackfin) defines MODULE_SYMBOL_PREFIX as not NULL ("_"), modpost will always warn about "no invalid crc". And it is the same with KSYMTAB_PFX.
