      Use --build-id ld option · 18991197
      Roland McGrath authored
      This change passes the --build-id when linking the kernel and when linking
      modules, if ld supports it.  This is a new GNU ld option that synthesizes an
      ELF note section inside the read-only data.  The note in this section contains
      unique identifying bits called the "build ID", which are generated so as to be
      different for any two linked ELF files that aren't identical.  The build ID
      can be recovered from stripped files, memory dumps, etc.  and used to look up
      the original program built, locate debuginfo or other details or history
      associated with it.  For normal program linking, the compiler passes
      --build-id to ld by default, but the option is needed when using ld directly
      as we do.

      kbuild: complain about missing system calls · c53aeca0
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      Most system calls seems to get added to i386 first. This patch
      automatically generates a warning for any new system call which is
      implemented on i386 but not the architecture currently being compiled.
      On PowerPC at the moment, for example, it results in these warnings:
      init/missing_syscalls.h:935:3: warning: #warning syscall sync_file_range not implemented
      init/missing_syscalls.h:947:3: warning: #warning syscall getcpu not implemented
      init/missing_syscalls.h:950:3: warning: #warning syscall epoll_pwait not implemented
      
      The file scripts/checksyscalls.sh list a number of legacy system calls
      that are ignored because they only makes sense on i386 systems.
      
      Other contributors to this patch are Russell King <rmk+lkml@arm.linux.org.uk>
      and Stéphane Jourdois <kwisatz@rubis.org>

      kbuild: move tags from ARCH and include/ ahead of drivers · dd7e54ad
      Don Mullis authored
      Move tags extracted from the ARCH and include/ sub-trees ahead of
      those from device drivers, so that the former will appear first
      during searches.
      
      Saves user time during interactive searches for certain patterns
      that happen to find unwanted matches in driver files.
      
      Example in emacs:
      	 "M-x find-tag PAGE_SIZE"
      	 "M-1 M-." (repeated until definition from asm-i386/page.h appears)

      kbuild: fix section mismatch check for vmlinux · 85bd2fdd
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      vmlinux does not contain relocation entries which is
      used by the section mismatch checks.
      Reported by: Atsushi Nemoto <anemo@mba.ocn.ne.jp>
      
      Use the individual objects as inputs to overcome
      this limitation.
      In modpost check the .o files and skip non-ELF files.

      [PATCH] x86: Drop cc-options call for all options supported in gcc 3.2+ · c8fdd247
      Andi Kleen authored
      The kernel only supports gcc 3.2+ now so it doesn't make sense
      anymore to explicitely check for options this compiler version
      already has.
      
      This actually fixes a bug. The -mprefered-stack-boundary check
      never worked because gcc rightly complains
      
        CC      arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s
      cc1: -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 is not between 4 and 12
      
      We just never saw the error because of cc-options.
      I changed it to 4 to actually work.
      
      Tested by compiling i386 and x86-64 defconfig with gcc 3.2.
      
      Should speed up the build time a tiny bit and improve
      stack usage on i386 slightly.

      Too many changes for comfort since -rc1.  Some missed merges, and some
      just annoyingly big fixes since.  This is not how an -rc2 should look.
      Need to really calm things down!
