Hi all,

While investigating why ARM64 required a ton of objects to be rebuilt
when toggling CONFIG_DEV_BLK_INITRD, it became clear that this was
because we define __early_init_dt_declare_initrd() differently and we do
that in arch/arm64/include/asm/memory.h which gets included by a fair
amount of other header files, and translation units as well.

Changing the value of CONFIG_DEV_BLK_INITRD is a common thing with build
systems that generate two kernels: one with the initramfs and one
without. buildroot is one of these build systems, OpenWrt is also
another one that does this.

This patch series proposes adding an empty initrd.h to satisfy the need
for drivers/of/fdt.c to unconditionally include that file, and moves the
custom __early_init_dt_declare_initrd() definition away from
asm/memory.h

This cuts the number of objects rebuilds from 1920 down to 26, so a
factor 73 approximately.

Apologies for the long CC list, please let me know how you would go
about merging that and if another approach would be preferable, e.g:
introducing a CONFIG_ARCH_INITRD_BELOW_START_OK Kconfig option or
something like that.

Changes in v2:

- put an /* empty */ comment in the asm-generic/initrd.h file
- trim down the CC list to maximize the chances of people receiving this

In preparation for separating the definition of
__early_init_dt_declare_initrd() on ARM64 in order to cut the amount of
files that require a rebuild when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD value is
changed, introduce an empty asm-generic initrd.h file and update all
architectures but arm64 to make use of it.

ARM64 is the only architecture that requires a re-definition of
__early_init_dt_declare_initrd(). Now that we added the infrastructure
in asm-generic to provide an asm/initrd.h file, properly break up that
definition from asm/memory.h and make use of that header in
drivers/of/fdt.c where this is used.

This significantly cuts the number of objects that need to be rebuilt on
ARM64 due to the repercusions of including asm/memory.h in several
places.

I scratch my head sometimes as to why some config options rebuild so
much stuff. One down, ? to go. :)

There may be a better way as of 4.20 because bootmem is now gone and
only memblock is used. This should unify what each arch needs to do
with initrd early. We need the physical address early for memblock
reserving. Then later on we need the virtual address to access the
initrd. Perhaps we should just change initrd_start and initrd_end to
physical addresses (or add 2 new variables would be less invasive and
allow for different translation than __va()). The sanity checks and
memblock reserve could also perhaps be moved to a common location.

Alternatively, given arm64 is the only oddball, I'd be fine with an
"if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_ARM64))" condition in the default
__early_init_dt_declare_initrd as long as we have a path to removing
it like the above option.

This one was by far the most invasive one due to its include chain, but
yes, there would be many more that could be optimized.

OK, let me cook a patch doing that and meanwhile I will look at how much
work is involved to implement the above option you outlined, which also
sounds entirely reasonable.

BTW, I would suspect that initrd_below_start_ok being 1 is not okay
for most arches. I'm not sure how that would work. min_low_pfn is
typically based on the start of memory. arm64 is not even setting it.

I think arm64 does not have to redefine __early_init_dt_declare_initrd().
Something like this might be just all we need (completely untested,
probably it won't even compile):

The alternative solution would be to replace initrd_start/initrd_end
with physical address versions of these everywhere - that's what
we're passed from DT, it's what 32-bit ARM would prefer, and seemingly
what 64-bit ARM would also like as well.

Grepping for initrd_start in arch/*/mm shows that there's lots of
architectures that have virtual/physical conversions on these, and
a number that have obviously been derived from 32-bit ARM's approach
(with maintaining a phys_initrd_start variable to simplify things).

Command line takes precedence, so just reverse the order.

AIUI, the original issue was doing the P2V translation was happening
too early and the VA could be wrong if the linear range is adjusted.
So I don't think this would work.

I suppose you could convert the VA back to a PA before any adjustments
and then back to a VA again after. But that's kind of hacky. 2 wrongs
making a right.

Probably things have changed since then, but in the current code there is

		initrd_start = __phys_to_virt(initrd_start);

and in between only the code related to CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE, so I believe
it's safe to use __phys_to_virt() here as well.

BTW, I think you meant virt_to_phys() here?

Here is fine yes, but I believe it was the the phys to virt in the DT
code before adjusting the linear range that was the problem.

FWIW, I am extracting the ARM implementation that parses the initrd
early command line parameter and the "setup" code doing the page
boundary alignment and memblock checking into a helper into lib/ that
other architectures can re-use. So far, this removes the need for
unicore32, arc and arm to duplicate essentially the same logic.

Presuming you are going to need asm-generic/initrd.h for that as well,
using override for __early_init_dt_declare_initrd in arm64 version of
initrd.h might be the simplest option.

What I am contemplating doing is promote
phys_initrd_start/phys_initrd_size to be global variables (similar to
initrd_start, initrd_end) and have a generic helper function for parsing
the initrd= command line parameter and finally removing
__early_init_dt_declare_initrd() because we could have
early_init_dt_check_for_initrd() just populate
phys_initrd_start/phys_initrd_size directly as well as
initrd_start/initrd_end using __va() to preserve compatibility with
architectures that rely on this. Then I would convert ARM64 to check for
phys_initrd_start which is really what it is is trying to do in
arch/arm64/mm/init.c::arm64_memblock_init().

Does that sound like a reasonable approach?
