kbuild: rename hostprogs-y/always to hostprogs/always-y

In old days, the "host-progs" syntax was used for specifying host
programs. It was renamed to the current "hostprogs-y" in 2004.

It is typically useful in scripts/Makefile because it allows Kbuild to
selectively compile host programs based on the kernel configuration.

This commit renames like follows:

always -> always-y
hostprogs-y -> hostprogs

So, scripts/Makefile will look like this:

always-$(CONFIG_BUILD_BIN2C) += ...
always-$(CONFIG_KALLSYMS) += ...
hostprogs := $(always-y) $(always-m)

I think this makes more sense because a host program is always a host
program, irrespective of the kernel configuration. We want to specify
which ones to compile by CONFIG options, so always-y will be handier.

The "always", "hostprogs-y", "hostprogs-m" will be kept for backward
compatibility for a while.

kbuild: do not descend to ./Kbuild when cleaning

'make clean' descends into ./Kbuild, but does not clean anything
since everything is added to no-clean-files.

There is no need to descend to ./Kbuild in the first place.
We can drop the no-clean-files assignment.

With this, there is no more user of no-clean-files. I will keep it
for a while to see whether a new user will appear.

kbuild: remove unimportant comments from ./Kbuild

Every time we add/remove a target, we need to touch the header part,
including renumbering. This is not so important information.

Numbering targets is rather misleading because they are not necessarily
generated in this order. For example, 1) and 2) can be executed
simultaneously when the -j option is given.

kbuild: use assignment instead of define ... endef for filechk_* rules

You do not have to use define ... endef for filechk_* rules.

For simple cases, the use of assignment looks cleaner, IMHO.

I updated the usage for scripts/Kbuild.include in case somebody
misunderstands the 'define ... endif' is the requirement.

kbuild: change filechk to surround the given command with { }

filechk_* rules often consist of multiple 'echo' lines. They must be
surrounded with { } or ( ) to work correctly. Otherwise, only the
string from the last 'echo' would be written into the target.

locking/atomics: Check generated headers are up-to-date

Now that all the generated atomic headers are in place, it would be good
to ensure that:

a) the headers are up-to-date when scripting changes.

b) developers don't directly modify the generated headers.

To ensure both of these properties, let's add a Kbuild step to check

License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license

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.

get inserted by cpp between any macro expanding to a number and a
subsequent + or -. For the +, current x86 gas then removes the space
again (future gas may not do so), but for the - the space gets retained
and is then considered a separator between macro arguments.

kbuild: create a way to create preprocessor constants from C expressions

The use of enums create constants that are not available to the preprocessor
when building the kernel (f.e. MAX_NR_ZONES).

Arch code already has a way to export constants calculated to the preprocessor

Kbuild: allow arch/xxx to use a different source path

Preparatory patch for the source merge of arch/i386 and arch/x86_64
into arch/x86. This allows to keep the original arch directories as
stubs for the main Makefiles, Kconfigs et. al during the transition
phase while having the code in the new arch/x86 directory.

kbuild: complain about missing system calls

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.

and St├ęphane Jourdois <kwisatz@rubis.org>

remove RPM_BUILD_ROOT from asm-offsets.h

No file in rpm binary package should have the RPM_BUILD_ROOT string in it.
To simplify building of external modules, our kernel-source package
contains some temp files from the Kbuild system. asm/asm-offsets.h is one
of the files that contains the absolute path if make O=$O is used.

* This file was generated by /var/tmp/kernel-source-2.6.14_rc4-build/usr/src/linux-2.6.14-rc4-2/Kbuild

Remove the $RPM_BUILD_ROOT string in the shipped tempfile.

kbuild: mips: fix sed regexp to generate asm-offset.h

Changes to Makefile.kbuild ("kbuild: add -fverbose-asm to i386
Makefile") breaks asm-offset.h file on MIPS. Other archs possibly
suffer this change too but I'm not sure.

Here is a fix just for MIPS.

kbuild: full dependency check on asm-offsets.h

Building asm-offsets.h has been moved to a seperate Kbuild file
located in the top-level directory. This allow us to share the
functionality across the architectures.

The old rules in architecture specific Makefiles will die
in subsequent patches.

Furhtermore the usual kbuild dependency tracking is now used
when deciding to rebuild asm-offsets.s. So we no longer risk
to fail a rebuild caused by asm-offsets.c dependencies being touched.

With this common rule-set we now force the same name across
all architectures. Following patches will fix the rest.
