Subject: [PATCH v4 03/14] modpost: split the section mismatch checks into section-check.c
Date: Mon,  9 May 2022 04:06:20 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220508190631.2386038-4-masahiroy@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20220508190631.2386038-1-masahiroy@kernel.org>

modpost.c is too big, and the half of the code is for section checks.
Split it.

I fixed some style issues in the moved code.

-/**
- * Whitelist to allow certain references to pass with no warning.
- *
- * Pattern 1:
- *   If a module parameter is declared __initdata and permissions=0
- *   then this is legal despite the warning generated.
- *   We cannot see value of permissions here, so just ignore
- *   this pattern.
- *   The pattern is identified by:
- *   tosec   = .init.data
- *   fromsec = .data*
- *   atsym   =__param*
- *
- * Pattern 1a:
- *   module_param_call() ops can refer to __init set function if permissions=0
- *   The pattern is identified by:
- *   tosec   = .init.text
- *   fromsec = .data*
- *   atsym   = __param_ops_*
- *
- * Pattern 2:
- *   Many drivers utilise a *driver container with references to
- *   add, remove, probe functions etc.
- *   the pattern is identified by:
- *   tosec   = init or exit section
- *   fromsec = data section
- *   atsym = *driver, *_template, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe,
- *           *probe_one, *_console, *_timer
- *
- * Pattern 3:
- *   Whitelist all references from .head.text to any init section
- *
- * Pattern 4:
- *   Some symbols belong to init section but still it is ok to reference
- *   these from non-init sections as these symbols don't have any memory
- *   allocated for them and symbol address and value are same. So even
- *   if init section is freed, its ok to reference those symbols.
- *   For ex. symbols marking the init section boundaries.
- *   This pattern is identified by
- *   refsymname = __init_begin, _sinittext, _einittext
- *
- * Pattern 5:
- *   GCC may optimize static inlines when fed constant arg(s) resulting
- *   in functions like cpumask_empty() -- generating an associated symbol
- *   cpumask_empty.constprop.3 that appears in the audit.  If the const that
- *   is passed in comes from __init, like say nmi_ipi_mask, we get a
- *   meaningless section warning.  May need to add isra symbols too...
- *   This pattern is identified by
- *   tosec   = init section
- *   fromsec = text section
- *   refsymname = *.constprop.*
- *
- * Pattern 6:
- *   Hide section mismatch warnings for ELF local symbols.  The goal
- *   is to eliminate false positive modpost warnings caused by
- *   compiler-generated ELF local symbol names such as ".LANCHOR1".
- *   Autogenerated symbol names bypass modpost's "Pattern 2"
- *   whitelisting, which relies on pattern-matching against symbol
- *   names to work.  (One situation where gcc can autogenerate ELF
- *   local symbols is when "-fsection-anchors" is used.)

+ * Whitelist to allow certain references to pass with no warning.

+ *   If a module parameter is declared __initdata and permissions=0
+ *   then this is legal despite the warning generated.
+ *   We cannot see value of permissions here, so just ignore
+ *   this pattern.
+ *   The pattern is identified by:
+ *   tosec   = .init.data
+ *   fromsec = .data*
+ *   atsym   =__param*
+ *
+ * Pattern 1a:
+ *   module_param_call() ops can refer to __init set function if permissions=0
+ *   The pattern is identified by:
+ *   tosec   = .init.text
+ *   fromsec = .data*
+ *   atsym   = __param_ops_*
+ *
+ * Pattern 2:
+ *   Many drivers utilise a *driver container with references to
+ *   add, remove, probe functions etc.
+ *   the pattern is identified by:
+ *   tosec   = init or exit section
+ *   fromsec = data section
+ *   atsym = *driver, *_template, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe,
+ *           *probe_one, *_console, *_timer
+ *
+ * Pattern 3:
+ *   Whitelist all references from .head.text to any init section
+ *
+ * Pattern 4:
+ *   Some symbols belong to init section but still it is ok to reference
+ *   these from non-init sections as these symbols don't have any memory
+ *   allocated for them and symbol address and value are same. So even
+ *   if init section is freed, its ok to reference those symbols.
+ *   For ex. symbols marking the init section boundaries.
+ *   This pattern is identified by
+ *   refsymname = __init_begin, _sinittext, _einittext
+ *
+ * Pattern 5:
+ *   GCC may optimize static inlines when fed constant arg(s) resulting
+ *   in functions like cpumask_empty() -- generating an associated symbol
+ *   cpumask_empty.constprop.3 that appears in the audit.  If the const that
+ *   is passed in comes from __init, like say nmi_ipi_mask, we get a
+ *   meaningless section warning.  May need to add isra symbols too...
+ *   This pattern is identified by
+ *   tosec   = init section
+ *   fromsec = text section
+ *   refsymname = *.constprop.*
+ *
+ * Pattern 6:
+ *   Hide section mismatch warnings for ELF local symbols.  The goal
+ *   is to eliminate false positive modpost warnings caused by
+ *   compiler-generated ELF local symbol names such as ".LANCHOR1".
+ *   Autogenerated symbol names bypass modpost's "Pattern 2"
+ *   whitelisting, which relies on pattern-matching against symbol
+ *   names to work.  (One situation where gcc can autogenerate ELF
+ *   local symbols is when "-fsection-anchors" is used.)

Subject: [PATCH v4 03/14] modpost: split the section mismatch checks into section-check.c
Date: Mon,  9 May 2022 04:06:20 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220508190631.2386038-4-masahiroy@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20220508190631.2386038-1-masahiroy@kernel.org>

modpost.c is too big, and the half of the code is for section checks.
Split it.

I fixed some style issues in the moved code.

-/**
- * Whitelist to allow certain references to pass with no warning.
- *
- * Pattern 1:
- *   If a module parameter is declared __initdata and permissions=0
- *   then this is legal despite the warning generated.
- *   We cannot see value of permissions here, so just ignore
- *   this pattern.
- *   The pattern is identified by:
- *   tosec   = .init.data
- *   fromsec = .data*
- *   atsym   =__param*
- *
- * Pattern 1a:
- *   module_param_call() ops can refer to __init set function if permissions=0
- *   The pattern is identified by:
- *   tosec   = .init.text
- *   fromsec = .data*
- *   atsym   = __param_ops_*
- *
- * Pattern 2:
- *   Many drivers utilise a *driver container with references to
- *   add, remove, probe functions etc.
- *   the pattern is identified by:
- *   tosec   = init or exit section
- *   fromsec = data section
- *   atsym = *driver, *_template, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe,
- *           *probe_one, *_console, *_timer
- *
- * Pattern 3:
- *   Whitelist all references from .head.text to any init section
- *
- * Pattern 4:
- *   Some symbols belong to init section but still it is ok to reference
- *   these from non-init sections as these symbols don't have any memory
- *   allocated for them and symbol address and value are same. So even
- *   if init section is freed, its ok to reference those symbols.
- *   For ex. symbols marking the init section boundaries.
- *   This pattern is identified by
- *   refsymname = __init_begin, _sinittext, _einittext
- *
- * Pattern 5:
- *   GCC may optimize static inlines when fed constant arg(s) resulting
- *   in functions like cpumask_empty() -- generating an associated symbol
- *   cpumask_empty.constprop.3 that appears in the audit.  If the const that
- *   is passed in comes from __init, like say nmi_ipi_mask, we get a
- *   meaningless section warning.  May need to add isra symbols too...
- *   This pattern is identified by
- *   tosec   = init section
- *   fromsec = text section
- *   refsymname = *.constprop.*
- *
- * Pattern 6:
- *   Hide section mismatch warnings for ELF local symbols.  The goal
- *   is to eliminate false positive modpost warnings caused by
- *   compiler-generated ELF local symbol names such as ".LANCHOR1".
- *   Autogenerated symbol names bypass modpost's "Pattern 2"
- *   whitelisting, which relies on pattern-matching against symbol
- *   names to work.  (One situation where gcc can autogenerate ELF
- *   local symbols is when "-fsection-anchors" is used.)

+ *   We cannot see value of permissions here, so just ignore
+ *   this pattern.
+ *   The pattern is identified by:
+ *   tosec   = .init.data
+ *   fromsec = .data*
+ *   atsym   =__param*
+ *
+ * Pattern 1a:
+ *   module_param_call() ops can refer to __init set function if permissions=0
+ *   The pattern is identified by:
+ *   tosec   = .init.text
+ *   fromsec = .data*
+ *   atsym   = __param_ops_*
+ *
+ * Pattern 2:
+ *   Many drivers utilise a *driver container with references to
+ *   add, remove, probe functions etc.
+ *   the pattern is identified by:
+ *   tosec   = init or exit section
+ *   fromsec = data section
+ *   atsym = *driver, *_template, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe,
+ *           *probe_one, *_console, *_timer
+ *
+ * Pattern 3:
+ *   Whitelist all references from .head.text to any init section
+ *
+ * Pattern 4:
+ *   Some symbols belong to init section but still it is ok to reference
+ *   these from non-init sections as these symbols don't have any memory
+ *   allocated for them and symbol address and value are same. So even
+ *   if init section is freed, its ok to reference those symbols.
+ *   For ex. symbols marking the init section boundaries.
+ *   This pattern is identified by
+ *   refsymname = __init_begin, _sinittext, _einittext
+ *
+ * Pattern 5:
+ *   GCC may optimize static inlines when fed constant arg(s) resulting
+ *   in functions like cpumask_empty() -- generating an associated symbol
+ *   cpumask_empty.constprop.3 that appears in the audit.  If the const that
+ *   is passed in comes from __init, like say nmi_ipi_mask, we get a
+ *   meaningless section warning.  May need to add isra symbols too...
+ *   This pattern is identified by
+ *   tosec   = init section
+ *   fromsec = text section
+ *   refsymname = *.constprop.*
+ *
+ * Pattern 6:
+ *   Hide section mismatch warnings for ELF local symbols.  The goal
+ *   is to eliminate false positive modpost warnings caused by
+ *   compiler-generated ELF local symbol names such as ".LANCHOR1".
+ *   Autogenerated symbol names bypass modpost's "Pattern 2"
+ *   whitelisting, which relies on pattern-matching against symbol
+ *   names to work.  (One situation where gcc can autogenerate ELF
+ *   local symbols is when "-fsection-anchors" is used.)
