s390/cio: add CRW inject functionality

This patch introduces the mechanism to inject artificial events to the
CIO layer.

One of the main-event type which triggers the CommonIO operations are
Channel Report events. When a malfunction or other condition affecting
channel-subsystem operation is recognized, a Channel Report Word
(consisting of one or more CRWs) describing the condition is made
pending for retrieval and analysis by the program. The CRW contains
information concerning the identity and state of a facility following
the detection of the malfunction or other condition.

The patch introduces two debugfs interfaces which can be used to inject
'artificial' events from the userspace. It is intended to provide an easy
means to increase the test coverage for CIO code. And this functionality
can be enabled via a new configuration option CONFIG_CIO_INJECT.

The newly introduces debugfs interfaces can be used as mentioned below
to generate different fake-events. To use the crw_inject, first we should
enable it by using enable_inject interface.
i.e

echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/s390/cio/enable_inject

After the first step, user can simulate CRW as follows:

echo <solicited> <overflow> <chaining> <rsc> <ancillary> <erc> <rsid> \
> /sys/kernel/debug/s390/cio/crw_inject

Example:
A permanent error ERC on CHPID 0x60 would look like this:

echo 0 0 0 4 0 6 0x60 > /sys/kernel/debug/s390/cio/crw_inject

and an initialized ERC on the same CHPID:

echo 0 0 0 4 0 2 0x60 > /sys/kernel/debug/s390/cio/crw_inject

s390: convert to generic entry

This patch converts s390 to use the generic entry infrastructure from
kernel/entry/*.

There are a few special things on s390:

- PIF_PER_TRAP is moved to TIF_PER_TRAP as the generic code doesn't
know about our PIF flags in exit_to_user_mode_loop().

- The old code had several ways to restart syscalls:

a) PIF_SYSCALL_RESTART, which was only set during execve to force a
restart after upgrading a process (usually qemu-kvm) to pgste page
table extensions.

b) PIF_SYSCALL, which is set by do_signal() to indicate that the
current syscall should be restarted. This is changed so that
do_signal() now also uses PIF_SYSCALL_RESTART. Continuing to use
PIF_SYSCALL doesn't work with the generic code, and changing it
to PIF_SYSCALL_RESTART makes PIF_SYSCALL and PIF_SYSCALL_RESTART
more unique.

- On s390 calling sys_sigreturn or sys_rt_sigreturn is implemented by
executing a svc instruction on the process stack which causes a fault.
While handling that fault the fault code sets PIF_SYSCALL to hand over
processing to the syscall code on exit to usermode.

The patch introduces PIF_SYSCALL_RET_SET, which is set if ptrace sets
a return value for a syscall. The s390x ptrace ABI uses r2 both for the
syscall number and return value, so ptrace cannot set the syscall number +
return value at the same time. The flag makes handling that a bit easier.
do_syscall() will just skip executing the syscall if PIF_SYSCALL_RET_SET
is set.

CONFIG_DEBUG_ASCE was removd in favour of the generic CONFIG_DEBUG_ENTRY.
CR1/7/13 will be checked both on kernel entry and exit to contain the
correct asces.

treewide: replace '---help---' in Kconfig files with 'help'

Since commit 84af7a6194e4 ("checkpatch: kconfig: prefer 'help' over
'---help---'"), the number of '---help---' has been gradually
decreasing, but there are still more than 2400 instances.

This commit finishes the conversion. While I touched the lines,
I also fixed the indentation.

There are a variety of indentation styles found.

a) 4 spaces + '---help---'
b) 7 spaces + '---help---'
c) 8 spaces + '---help---'
d) 1 space + 1 tab + '---help---'
e) 1 tab + '---help---' (correct indentation)
f) 1 tab + 1 space + '---help---'
g) 1 tab + 2 spaces + '---help---'

Kconfig: consolidate the "Kernel hacking" menu

Move the source of lib/Kconfig.debug and arch/$(ARCH)/Kconfig.debug to
the top-level Kconfig. For two architectures that means moving their
arch-specific symbols in that menu into a new arch Kconfig.debug file,

unconditionally.

Also move the actual 'Kernel hacking' menu to lib/Kconfig.debug, where

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
lines).

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.

is available if the kernel parameter "earlyprintk" has been specified,
just like it works for other architectures that also provide an early

This makes debugging of early problems much easier, since now we
finally have working console output even before memory detection is
running.

The boot console will be automatically disabled as soon as another
console will be registered.

Kconfig: consolidate CONFIG_DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKS

The help text for this config is duplicated across the x86, parisc, and
s390 Kconfig.debug files. Arnd Bergman noted that the help text was
slightly misleading and should be fixed to state that enabling this
option isn't a problem when using pre 4.4 gcc.

To simplify the rewording, consolidate the text into lib/Kconfig.debug
and modify it there to be more explicit about when you should say N to
this config.

Also, make the text a bit more generic by stating that this option
enables compile time checks so we can cover architectures which emit
warnings vs. ones which emit errors. The details of how an
architecture decided to implement the checks isn't as important as the
concept of compile time checking of copy_from_user() calls.

While we're doing this, remove all the copy_from_user_overflow() code
that's duplicated many times and place it into lib/ so that any
architecture supporting this option can get the function for free.

This is more or less the same as the x86 page table dumper which was

This usually makes only sense for kernel developers. The output
with CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC is not very helpful, because of the
huge number of mapped out pages, however I decided for the time
being to not add a !DEBUG_PAGEALLOC dependency.
Maybe it's helpful for somebody even with that option.

generic debug pagealloc

CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC is now supported by x86, powerpc, sparc64, and
s390. This patch implements it for the rest of the architectures by
filling the pages with poison byte patterns after free_pages() and
verifying the poison patterns before alloc_pages().

This generic one cannot detect invalid page accesses immediately but
invalid read access may cause invalid dereference by poisoned memory and
invalid write access can be detected after a long delay.

Linux-2.6.12-rc2

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!
