Subject: [POC 21/23] livepatch: Remove obsolete arch_klp_init_object_loaded()
Date: Fri, 17 Jan 2020 16:03:21 +0100
Message-ID: <20200117150323.21801-22-pmladek@suse.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200117150323.21801-1-pmladek@suse.com>

The livepatch specific-relocation is finally done together with the normal
module relocations. As a result, alternatives, paraintructions, and other
architecture-specific modifications are done correctly by the module
loader out of box. There is no longer need to do them explicitely by
arch_klp_init_object_loaded().

   Note that the 'Ndx' (Section index) for these symbols is SHN_LIVEPATCH (0xff20).
   "OS" means OS-specific.
-
-5. Architecture-specific sections
-=================================
-Architectures may override arch_klp_init_object_loaded() to perform
-additional arch-specific tasks when a target module loads, such as applying
-arch-specific sections. On x86 for example, we must apply per-object
-.altinstructions and .parainstructions sections when a target module loads.
-These sections must be prefixed with ".klp.arch.$objname." so that they can
-be easily identified when iterating through a patch module's Elf sections
-(See arch/x86/kernel/livepatch.c for a complete example).
-
-6. Symbol table and Elf section access
-======================================
-A livepatch module's symbol table is accessible through module->symtab.
-
-Since apply_relocate_add() requires access to a module's section headers,
-symbol table, and relocation section indices, Elf information is preserved for
-livepatch modules and is made accessible by the module loader through
-module->klp_info, which is a klp_modinfo struct. When a livepatch module loads,
-this struct is filled in by the module loader. Its fields are documented below::
-
-	struct klp_modinfo {
-		Elf_Ehdr hdr; /* Elf header */
-		Elf_Shdr *sechdrs; /* Section header table */
-		char *secstrings; /* String table for the section headers */
-		unsigned int symndx; /* The symbol table section index */
-	};
