kernel.h: drop unneeded <linux/kernel.h> inclusion from other headers

Patch series "kernel.h further split", v5.

kernel.h is a set of something which is not related to each other and
often used in non-crossed compilation units, especially when drivers
need only one or two macro definitions from it.

This patch (of 7):

There is no evidence we need kernel.h inclusion in certain headers.
Drop unneeded <linux/kernel.h> inclusion from other headers.

locking: Remove spin_lock_flags() etc

parisc, ia64 and powerpc32 are the only remaining architectures that
provide custom arch_{spin,read,write}_lock_flags() functions, which are
meant to re-enable interrupts while waiting for a spinlock.

However, none of these can actually run into this codepath, because
it is only called on architectures without CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK,
or when CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC is set without CONFIG_LOCKDEP, and none
of those combinations are possible on the three architectures.

Going back in the git history, it appears that arch/mn10300 may have
been able to run into this code path, but there is a good chance that
it never worked. On the architectures that still exist, it was
already impossible to hit back in 2008 after the introduction of
CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK, and possibly earlier.

As this is all dead code, just remove it and the helper functions built
around it. For arch/ia64, the inline asm could be cleaned up, but
it seems safer to leave it untouched.

lockdep: Split header file into lockdep and lockdep_types

There is a header file inclusion loop between asm-generic/bug.h

on the which file is included first. One way of breaking this loop

# de8f5e4f 20-Mar-2020 Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

lockdep: Introduce wait-type checks

Extend lockdep to validate lock wait-type context.

The current wait-types are:

LD_WAIT_FREE, /* wait free, rcu etc.. */
LD_WAIT_SPIN, /* spin loops, raw_spinlock_t etc.. */
LD_WAIT_CONFIG, /* CONFIG_PREEMPT_LOCK, spinlock_t etc.. */
LD_WAIT_SLEEP, /* sleeping locks, mutex_t etc.. */

Where lockdep validates that the current lock (the one being acquired)
fits in the current wait-context (as generated by the held stack).

This ensures that there is no attempt to acquire mutexes while holding
spinlocks, to acquire spinlocks while holding raw_spinlocks and so on. In
other words, its a more fancy might_sleep().

Obviously RCU made the entire ordeal more complex than a simple single
value test because RCU can be acquired in (pretty much) any context and
while it presents a context to nested locks it is not the same as it
got acquired in.

Therefore its necessary to split the wait_type into two values, one
representing the acquire (outer) and one representing the nested context
(inner). For most 'normal' locks these two are the same.

[ To make static initialization easier we have the rule that:
.outer == INV means .outer == .inner; because INV == 0. ]

It further means that its required to find the minimal .inner of the held
stack to compare against the outer of the new lock; because while 'normal'
RCU presents a CONFIG type to nested locks, if it is taken while already
holding a SPIN type it obviously doesn't relax the rules.

Below is an example output generated by the trivial test code:


[ BUG: Invalid wait context ]
swapper/0/1 is trying to lock:
ffffc90000013f20 (&bar){....}-{3:3}, at: kernel_init+0xdb/0x187
other info that might help us debug this:
1 lock held by swapper/0/1:
#0: ffffc90000013ee0 (&foo){+.+.}-{2:2}, at: kernel_init+0xd1/0x187

The way to read it is to look at the new -{n,m} part in the lock
description; -{3:3} for the attempted lock, and try and match that up to
the held locks, which in this case is the one: -{2,2}.

This tells that the acquiring lock requires a more relaxed environment than
presented by the lock stack.

Currently only the normal locks and RCU are converted, the rest of the
lockdep users defaults to .inner = INV which is ignored. More conversions
can be done when desired.

The check for spinlock_t nesting is not enabled by default. It's a separate
config option for now as there are known problems which are currently
addressed. The config option allows to identify these problems and to
verify that the solutions found are indeed solving them.

The config switch will be removed and the checks will permanently enabled
once the vast majority of issues has been addressed.

ila: make lockdep happy again

Previously, alloc_ila_locks() and bucket_table_alloc() call
spin_lock_init() separately, therefore they have two different
lock names and lock class keys. However, after commit b893281715ab
("ila: Call library function alloc_bucket_locks") they both call
helper alloc_bucket_spinlocks() which now only has one lock
name and lock class key. This causes a few bogus lockdep warnings
as reported by syzbot.

Fix this by making alloc_bucket_locks() a macro and pass declaration
name as lock name and a static lock class key inside the macro.

locking/spinlocks: Document the semantics of spin_is_locked()

There appeared to be a certain, recurrent uncertainty concerning the
semantics of spin_is_locked(), likely a consequence of the fact that
this semantics remains undocumented or that it has been historically
linked to the (likewise unclear) semantics of spin_unlock_wait().

A recent auditing [1] of the callers of the primitive confirmed that
none of them are relying on particular ordering guarantees; document
this semantics by adding a docbook header to spin_is_locked(). Also,
describe behaviors specific to certain CONFIG_SMP=n builds.

locking/core: Remove break_lock field when CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK=y

When CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBEAK=y, locking structures grow an extra int ->break_lock
field which is used to implement raw_spin_is_contended() by setting the field
to 1 when waiting on a lock and clearing it to zero when holding a lock.
However, there are a few problems with this approach:

- There is a write-write race between a CPU successfully taking the lock
(and subsequently writing break_lock = 0) and a waiter waiting on
the lock (and subsequently writing break_lock = 1). This could result
in a contended lock being reported as uncontended and vice-versa.

- On machines with store buffers, nothing guarantees that the writes
to break_lock are visible to other CPUs at any particular time.

- READ_ONCE/WRITE_ONCE are not used, so the field is potentially
susceptible to harmful compiler optimisations,

Consequently, the usefulness of this field is unclear and we'd be better off
removing it and allowing architectures to implement raw_spin_is_contended() by
providing a definition of arch_spin_is_contended(), as they can when

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.

locking/core: Remove {read,spin,write}_can_lock()

Outside of the locking code itself, {read,spin,write}_can_lock() have no
users in tree. Apparmor (the last remaining user of write_can_lock()) got
moved over to lockdep by the previous patch.

This patch removes the use of {read,spin,write}_can_lock() from the
BUILD_LOCK_OPS macro, deferring to the trylock operation for testing the
lock status, and subsequently removes the unused macros altogether. They
aren't guaranteed to work in a concurrent environment and can give
incorrect results in the case of qrwlock.

locking: Remove spin_unlock_wait() generic definitions

There is no agreed-upon definition of spin_unlock_wait()'s semantics,
and it appears that all callers could do just as well with a lock/unlock
pair. This commit therefore removes spin_unlock_wait() and related
definitions from core code.

locking: Introduce smp_mb__after_spinlock()

Since its inception, our understanding of ACQUIRE, esp. as applied to
spinlocks, has changed somewhat. Also, I wonder if, with a simple
change, we cannot make it provide more.

The problem with the comment is that the STORE done by spin_lock isn't
itself ordered by the ACQUIRE, and therefore a later LOAD can pass over
it and cross with any prior STORE, rendering the default WMB
insufficient (pointed out by Alan).

Now, this is only really a problem on PowerPC and ARM64, both of
which already defined smp_mb__before_spinlock() as a smp_mb().

At the same time, we can get a much stronger construct if we place
that same barrier _inside_ the spin_lock(). In that case we upgrade
the RCpc spinlock to an RCsc. That would make all schedule() calls
fully transitive against one another.

documentation: memory-barriers: Fix smp_mb__before_spinlock() semantics

Our current documentation claims that, when followed by an ACQUIRE,
smp_mb__before_spinlock() orders prior loads against subsequent loads
and stores, which isn't the intent. This commit therefore fixes the
documentation to state that this sequence orders only prior stores
against subsequent loads and stores.

In addition, the original intent of smp_mb__before_spinlock() was to only
order prior loads against subsequent stores, however, people have started
using it as if it ordered prior loads against subsequent loads and stores.
This commit therefore also updates smp_mb__before_spinlock()'s header
comment to reflect this new reality.

locking: Add an smp_mb__after_unlock_lock() for UNLOCK+BLOCK barrier

The Linux kernel has traditionally required that an UNLOCK+LOCK
pair act as a full memory barrier when either (1) that
UNLOCK+LOCK pair was executed by the same CPU or task, or (2)
the same lock variable was used for the UNLOCK and LOCK. It now
seems likely that very few places in the kernel rely on this
full-memory-barrier semantic, and with the advent of queued
locks, providing this semantic either requires complex
reasoning, or for some architectures, added overhead.

This commit therefore adds a smp_mb__after_unlock_lock(), which
may be placed after a LOCK primitive to restore the
full-memory-barrier semantic. All definitions are currently
no-ops, but will be upgraded for some architectures when queued
locks arrive.

sched: fix the theoretical signal_wake_up() vs schedule() race

This is only theoretical, but after try_to_wake_up(p) was changed
to check p->state under p->pi_lock the code like


can miss a signal. This is the special case of wait-for-condition,
it relies on try_to_wake_up/schedule interaction and thus it does
not need mb() between __set_current_state() and if(signal_pending).

However, this __set_current_state() can move into the critical
section protected by rq->lock, now that try_to_wake_up() takes
another lock we need to ensure that it can't be reordered with
"if (signal_pending(current))" check inside that section.

The patch is actually one-liner, it simply adds smp_wmb() before
spin_lock_irq(rq->lock). This is what try_to_wake_up() already
does by the same reason.

We turn this wmb() into the new helper, smp_mb__before_spinlock(),
for better documentation and to allow the architectures to change
the default implementation.

While at it, kill smp_mb__after_lock(), it has no callers.

Perhaps we can also add smp_mb__before/after_spinunlock() for

Fix IRQ flag handling naming

Fix the IRQ flag handling naming. In linux/irqflags.h under one configuration,
it maps:

local_irq_enable() -> raw_local_irq_enable()
local_irq_disable() -> raw_local_irq_disable()
local_irq_save() -> raw_local_irq_save()

and under the other configuration, it maps:

raw_local_irq_enable() -> local_irq_enable()
raw_local_irq_disable() -> local_irq_disable()
raw_local_irq_save() -> local_irq_save()

This is quite confusing. There should be one set of names expected of the
arch, and this should be wrapped to give another set of names that are expected
by users of this facility.

Change this to have the arch provide:

flags = arch_local_save_flags()
flags = arch_local_irq_save()

Then linux/irqflags.h wraps these to provide:


with type checking on the flags 'arguments', and then wraps those to provide:


with tracing included if enabled.

The arch functions can now all be inline functions rather than some of them
having to be macros.

locking: Simplify spinlock inlining

For !DEBUG_SPINLOCK && !PREEMPT && SMP the spin_unlock()
functions were always inlined by using special defines which
would call the __raw* functions.

The out-of-line variants for these functions would be generated

Use the new per unlock/locking variant mechanism to force
inlining of the unlock functions like before. This is not a
functional change, we just get rid of one additional way to
force inlining.

spinlock: lockbreak cleanup

The break_lock data structure and code for spinlocks is quite nasty.
Not only does it double the size of a spinlock but it changes locking to
a potentially less optimal trylock.

Put all of that under CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK, and introduce a
__raw_spin_is_contended that uses the lock data itself to determine whether
there are waiters on the lock, to be used if CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK is
not set.

Rename need_lockbreak to spin_needbreak, make it use spin_is_contended to
decouple it from the spinlock implementation, and make it typesafe (rwlocks
do not have any need_lockbreak sites -- why do they even get bloated up
with that break_lock then?).

[PATCH] timer/hrtimer: take per cpu locks in sane order

Doing something like this on a two cpu system

# echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/online
# echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/online
# echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online

will give me this:

[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
2.6.21-rc2-g562aa1d4-dirty #7
bash/1282 is trying to acquire lock:
(&cpu_base->lock_key){.+..}, at: [<000000000005f17e>] hrtimer_cpu_notify+0xc6/0x240

but task is already holding lock:
(&cpu_base->lock_key#2){.+..}, at: [<000000000005f174>] hrtimer_cpu_notify+0xbc/0x240

which lock already depends on the new lock.

This happens because we have the following code in kernel/hrtimer.c:

migrate_hrtimers(int cpu)
old_base = &per_cpu(hrtimer_bases, cpu);
new_base = &get_cpu_var(hrtimer_bases);

Which means the spinlocks are taken in an order which depends on which cpu
gets shut down from which other cpu. Therefore lockdep complains that there
might be an ABBA deadlock. Since migrate_hrtimers() gets only called on
cpu hotplug it's safe to assume that it isn't executed concurrently on a

The same problem exists in kernel/timer.c: migrate_timers().

As pointed out by Christian Borntraeger one possible solution to avoid
the locking order complaints would be to make sure that the locks are
always taken in the same order. E.g. by taking the lock of the cpu with
the lower number first.

To achieve this we introduce two new spinlock functions double_spin_lock
and double_spin_unlock which lock or unlock two locks in a given order.

[PATCH] Enforce "unsigned long flags;" when spinlocking

Make it break or warn if you pass to spin_lock_irqsave() and friends
something different from "unsigned long flags;". Suprisingly large amount
of these was caught by recent commit
c53421b18f205c5f97c604ae55c6a921f034b0f6 and others.

Idea is largely from FRV typechecking. Suggestions from Andrew Morton.
All stupid typos in first version fixed.

Passes allmodconfig on i386, x86_64, alpha, arm as well as my usual config.

Note #1: checking with sparse is still needed, because a driver can save
and pass around flags or something. So far patch is very intrusive.
Note #2: techically, we should break only if
sizeof(flags) < sizeof(unsigned long),
however, the more pain for getting suspicious code into kernel,
the better.

kbuild: set correct KBUILD_MODNAME when using well known kernel symbols as module names

This patch fixes a problem when we use well known kernel symbols as module

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

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.

[PATCH] spinlock consolidation

This patch (written by me and also containing many suggestions of Arjan van
de Ven) does a major cleanup of the spinlock code. It does the following

- consolidates and enhances the spinlock/rwlock debugging code

- simplifies the asm/spinlock.h files

- encapsulates the raw spinlock type and moves generic spinlock
features (such as ->break_lock) into the generic code.

- cleans up the spinlock code hierarchy to get rid of the spaghetti.

Most notably there's now only a single variant of the debugging code,
located in lib/spinlock_debug.c. (previously we had one SMP debugging
variant per architecture, plus a separate generic one for UP builds)

Also, i've enhanced the rwlock debugging facility, it will now track
write-owners. There is new spinlock-owner/CPU-tracking on SMP builds too.
All locks have lockup detection now, which will work for both soft and hard
spin/rwlock lockups.

The arch-level include files now only contain the minimally necessary
subset of the spinlock code - all the rest that can be generalized now
lives in the generic headers:

include/asm-i386/spinlock_types.h | 16
include/asm-x86_64/spinlock_types.h | 16

I have also split up the various spinlock variants into separate files,
making it easier to see which does what. The new layout is:

asm/spinlock_types_smp.h | linux/spinlock_types_up.h
linux/spinlock_types.h | linux/spinlock_types.h
asm/spinlock_smp.h | linux/spinlock_up.h
linux/spinlock_api_smp.h | linux/spinlock_api_up.h
linux/spinlock.h | linux/spinlock.h

* here's the role of the various spinlock/rwlock related include files:
* on SMP builds:
* asm/spinlock_types.h: contains the raw_spinlock_t/raw_rwlock_t and the
* initializers
* linux/spinlock_types.h:
* defines the generic type and initializers
* asm/spinlock.h: contains the __raw_spin_*()/etc. lowlevel
* implementations, mostly inline assembly code
* (also included on UP-debug builds:)
* linux/spinlock_api_smp.h:
* contains the prototypes for the _spin_*() APIs.
* linux/spinlock.h: builds the final spin_*() APIs.
* on UP builds:
* linux/spinlock_type_up.h:
* contains the generic, simplified UP spinlock type.
* (which is an empty structure on non-debug builds)
* linux/spinlock_types.h:
* defines the generic type and initializers
* linux/spinlock_up.h:
* contains the __raw_spin_*()/etc. version of UP
* builds. (which are NOPs on non-debug, non-preempt
* builds)
* (included on UP-non-debug builds:)
* linux/spinlock_api_up.h:
* builds the _spin_*() APIs.
* linux/spinlock.h: builds the final spin_*() APIs.

All SMP and UP architectures are converted by this patch.

arm, i386, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390/s390x, x64 was build-tested via
crosscompilers. m32r, mips, sh, sparc, have not been tested yet, but should
be mostly fine.

Booted and lightly tested on a500-44 (64-bit, SMP kernel, dual CPU).
Builds 32-bit SMP kernel (not booted or tested). I did not try to build
non-SMP kernels. That should be trivial to fix up later if necessary.

I converted bit ops atomic_hash lock to raw_spinlock_t. Doing so avoids
some ugly nesting of linux/*.h and asm/*.h files. Those particular locks
are well tested and contained entirely inside arch specific code. I do NOT
expect any new issues to arise with them.

If someone does ever need to use debug/metrics with them, then they will
need to unravel this hairball between spinlocks, atomic ops, and bit ops
that exist only because parisc has exactly one atomic instruction: LDCW
(load and clear word).
