      [PATCH] x86_64: Don't define string functions to builtin · 6edfba1b
      Andi Kleen authored
      gcc should handle this anyways, and it causes problems when
      sprintf is turned into strcpy by gcc behind our backs and
      the C fallback version of strcpy is actually defining __builtin_strcpy
      
      Then drop -ffreestanding from the main Makefile because it isn't
      needed anymore and implies -fno-builtin, which is wrong now.
      (it was only added for x86-64, so dropping it should be safe)

      [PATCH] CONFIG_UNWIND_INFO · 604bf5a2
      Jan Beulich authored
      As a foundation for reliable stack unwinding, this adds a config option
      (available to all architectures except IA64 and those where the module
      loader might have problems with the resulting relocations) to enable the
      generation of frame unwind information.

      Kconfig: remove the CONFIG_CC_ALIGN_* options · 8cab77a2
      Adrian Bunk authored
      I don't see any use case for the CONFIG_CC_ALIGN_* options:
      - they are only available if EMBEDDED
      - people using EMBEDDED will most likely also enable
        CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE
      - the default for -Os is to disable alignment
      
      In case someone is doing performance comparisons and discovers that the
      default settings gcc chooses aren't good, the only sane thing is to discuss
      whether it makes sense to change this, not through offering options to change
      this locally.

      kbuild: fix build with O=.. · 8c7f75d3
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      .kernelrelease was saved in same directory as kernel source also
      with make O=...
      Make sure we kick in the normal logic to shift to the output directory
      when we build .kernelrelease after executing *config.

      kbuild: fix 'make all install_modules install' · df9df036
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      The command 'make all modules_install install' would fail
      in a virgin tree - pointing at a non-existing directory under
      /lib/modules/xxx
      
      KERNELRELEASE is part of MODLIB and we need to create .kernelrelease
      before we can properly evaluate KERNELRELEASE,
      Changing MODLIB to the recursively expanded flavor let it pick up
      the correct KERNELRELEASE value.

      kbuild: create .kernelrelease at *config step · 2244cbd8
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      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.

      powerpc: Make ARCH=powerpc the default for 32-bit ppc · 820a8ce7
      Paul Mackerras authored
      This makes ARCH=powerpc the default on 32-bit powerpc machines,
      where uname -m returns ppc, as well as on 64-bit powerpc machines.
      Most people who would be likely to build their own kernels on
      32-bit powerpc machines would be using powermacs or CHRP machines,
      both of which are supported with ARCH=powerpc now.  Embedded ppc
      developers whose ports haven't been moved over to arch/powerpc
      yet will have to explicitly set ARCH=ppc now.

      kbuild: re-export VERSION, PATCHLEVEL, SUBLEVEL · 4f0210b9
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      Eric Sandeen <sandeen@sgi.com> pointed out that it is usefull to have
      access to VERSION, PATCHLEVEL, SUBLEVEL in external modules, and gooling
      a litte confirmed this.
      So re-export them.
      Usage within the kernel is still discouraged but possible.

      kbuild: KERNELRELEASE is only re-defined when buiding the kernel · cb58455c
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      To avoid running setlocalversion as root no longer (re-)define
      KERNELRELEASE for each run. With this patch KERNELRELEASE is
      only re-read when we do an actual kernel build.
      Rationale behind this is "do as little as possible" when executing
      make install - as root!
      
      A new file named .kernelrelease is strored in the root of the kernel
      tree containing the actual version string.
      So when we use do a kernel build the .kernelrelease file will be updated.
      But in all other situations it is left as-is.
      
      To make it more visible the kernel now prints out the version being build.
      Sample:
      Building kernel 2.6.15-g63b794bf-dirty
      ...
      ...
      
      The patch also un-exports VERSION PATCHLEVEL SUBLEVEL EXTRAVERSION LOCALVERSION
      since all users of these are anyway broken - and none is left in the
      tree.
