The series introduces struct __kernel_timex as a substitute for
the non y2038 safe struct timex.

The series is based on the original series posted by Arnd Bergmann
in [1].

The overview of the series is as below:
1. Prepare for the compat timex interfaces to be used unconditionally.
2. Introduce struct __kernel_timex.
3. Use struct __kernel_timex in place of struct timex.
4. Switch syscalls to use struct __kernel_timex.

[1] https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2015-05/msg00070.html

Changes since v1:
* Fix riscv asm/compat.h to pick up generic compat types

Deepa Dinamani (7):
  arm64: Make basic compat_* types always available
  sparc: Make thread_info.h available directly
  riscv: Include asm-generic/compat.h
  timex: prepare compat helpers for y2038 changes
  time: Add struct __kernel_timex
  timex: use __kernel_timex internally
  timex: change syscalls to use struct __kernel_timex

As we repurpose more compat syscalls to be used in non CONFIG_COMPAT
usecases as part of solving y2038, we need to make these basic types
available unconditionally.

linux/compat.h was including this indirectly for
asm/compat.h dependencies.

riscv does not enable CONFIG_COMPAT in default configurations:
defconfig, allmodconfig and nomodconfig.
And hence does not inlude definitions for compat data types.

Now that time syscalls are being reused in non CONFIG_COMPAT
modes, include asm-generic definitions for riscv.

Alternative would be to make compat_time.h to be conditional on
CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME. But, since riscv is already has an
asm/compat.h include the generic version instead.

Move struct compat_timex to compat_time.h.
This is in line with other compat time structures that are planned
to be deprecated eventually.

Also enable compat_get/put_timex helpers unconditionally.

struct timex uses struct timeval internally.
struct timeval is not y2038 safe.
Introduce a new UAPI type struct __kernel_timex
that is y2038 safe.

struct __kernel_timex uses a timeval type that is
similar to struct __kernel_timespec which preserves the
same structure size across 32 bit and 64 bit ABIs.
struct __kernel_timex also restructures other members of the
structure to make the structure the same on 64 bit and 32 bit
architectures.
Note that struct __kernel_timex is the same as struct timex
on a 64 bit architecture.

The above solution is similar to other new y2038 syscalls
that are being introduced: both 32 bit and 64 bit ABIs
have a common entry, and the compat entry supports the old 32 bit
syscall interface.

Alternatives considered were:
1. Add new time type to struct timex that makes use of padded
   bits. This time type could be based on the struct __kernel_timespec.
   modes will use a flag to notify which time structure should be
   used internally.
   This needs some application level changes on both 64 bit and 32 bit
   architectures. Although 64 bit machines could continue to use the
   older timeval structure without any changes.

2. Add a new u8 type to struct timex that makes use of padded bits. This
   can be used to save higher order tv_sec bits. modes will use a flag to
   notify presence of such a type.
   This will need some application level changes on 32 bit architectures.

3. Add a new compat_timex structure that differs in only the size of the
   time type; keep rest of struct timex the same.
   This requires extra syscalls to manage all 3 cases on 64 bit
   architectures. This will not need any application level changes but will
   add more complexity from kernel side.

struct timex is not y2038 safe.
Replace all uses of timex with y2038 safe __kernel_timex.

Note that struct __kernel_timex is an ABI interface definition.
We could define a new structure based on __kernel_timex that
is only available internally instead. Right now, there isn't
a strong motivation for this as the structure is isolated to
a few defined struct timex interfaces and such a structure would
be exactly the same as struct timex.

The patch was generated by the following coccinelle script:

struct timex is not y2038 safe.
Switch all the syscall apis to use y2038 safe __kernel_timex.

Note that sys_adjtimex() does not have a y2038 safe solution.
The api is meant to be deprecated on 32 bit machines after y2038.

Two comments here:

First I think the current riscv compat.h is completely bogus.
As you mentioned riscv does not actually have a compat mode, so
having a compat.h makes no sensse at all, and the COMPAT_UTS_MACHINE
override which is the only thing implemented is included in that
statement.

Second I think abusing compat.h for old syscall compatibility of any
form is a really bad idea.  I think you need to split that part out,
and preferably not using compat in the name, but something like
old-time.h or time32.h for the name.

I was leaving the decision on how to clean up compat mode to the
architecture maintainers.
I wasn't sure if they were still in the middle of implementing it.

Are you talking about just the header file or the way we are reusing
compat syscalls?
Either way, we have merged quite a few patches this way already.
I agree that having something like time32.h might be less confusing.
But, if you are worried about the former, then maybe we should propose
a cleanup after we finish what we are doing or back out the merged
patches.
For instance, posix_clock apis have already been changed this way.

If we only need it for 32 bit time_t, we can probably just use the
asm-generic/compat.h for now.

It would be easy to rename compat_time_t, compat_timespec and
compat_timeval to something else if we could come up with a good
name for them (we already have too many variants of each of
them though, otherwise we end up being more confusing rather
than less).

We can also rename all the compat syscalls that are now shared
with 32-bit, e.g. using sys_waitid_time32() instead of
compat_sys_waitid(), and that would be consistent with the
new _time64() naming that we are introducing for some of them.
Right now, this affects around 30 syscalls; with my test tree on
ARM, I have this set of calls, the exact set is architecture
dependent of course:

compat_sys_time
compat_sys_stime
compat_sys_utime
compat_sys_gettimeofday
compat_sys_settimeofday
compat_sys_old_select
compat_sys_setitimer
compat_sys_getitimer
compat_sys_select
compat_sys_sched_rr_get_interval
compat_sys_nanosleep
compat_sys_rt_sigtimedwait
compat_sys_futex
compat_sys_io_getevents
compat_sys_timer_settime
compat_sys_timer_gettime
compat_sys_clock_settime
compat_sys_clock_gettime
compat_sys_clock_getres
compat_sys_clock_nanosleep
compat_sys_utimes
compat_sys_mq_timedsend
compat_sys_mq_timedreceive
compat_sys_futimesat
compat_sys_pselect6
compat_sys_ppoll
compat_sys_utimensat
compat_sys_timerfd_settime
compat_sys_timerfd_gettime
compat_sys_recvmmsg
compat_sys_io_pgetevents

Completely separating them from the compat code
would add further complexity though, as some of the
system calls take another argument that is different
between 32-bit and 64-bit kernels, in particular
pselect6, ppoll, io_pgetevents, recvmmsg, and waitid.

Ok. Will send out a v3 with asm/compat.h removed. Thanks.

Yes, please.  You'll need to touch the syscall tables anyway to refer to
some new name, so it really isn't that much more work.

Why would that create further complexity?  IFF those calls need compat
work other than the time structures you will need additional variants of
them anyway.  If the only compat handling is the time structures they
will stay the same independent of the name.

Ok. The downside is that we probably have to change the existing
architectures using those compat syscalls together, with one patch
renaming them in x86, powerpc, s390, mips, sparc and parisc, but
at least that is a fairly simple rename.

For the tables that are used on native 32-bit architectures
(asm-generic, arm, m68k, microblaze, mips, parisc, powerpc,
sh, sparc, x86 and xtensa), I'd still prefer following the plan of
changing them one architecture at a time in a separate patch,
but hopefully all in the same merge window.

Right now, each of the five syscalls has three variants in the current
implementation, e.g.

/* new native call using 64-bit time_t */
SYSCALL_DEFINE5(ppoll, struct pollfd __user *, ufds, unsigned int, nfds,
                struct __kernel_timespec __user *, tsp, const sigset_t
__user *, sigmask,
                size_t, sigsetsize)
...

/* handler for 32-bit time_t, both native and compat */
#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME
#ifndef CONFIG_COMPAT
/* ugly redirect to native types on 32-bit kernels */
#define compat_get_fd_set get_fd_set
#define compat_set_fd_set set_fd_set
#define compat_sigset_t sigset_t
#endif /* !CONFIG_COMPAT
COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE5(ppoll, struct pollfd __user *, ufds,
        unsigned int,  nfds, struct compat_timespec __user *, tsp,
        const compat_sigset_t __user *, sigmask, compat_size_t, sigsetsize)
...
#endif /* CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME */

/* compat handler for 64-bit time_t on 64-bit kernel */
#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT
COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE5(ppoll_time64, struct pollfd __user *, ufds,
        unsigned int,  nfds, struct __kernel_timespec __user *, tsp,
        const compat_sigset_t __user *, sigmask, compat_size_t, sigsetsize)
...
#endif

Avoiding that set of #defines as you suggest would definitely
make it cleaner, but then we need to have four variants instead
of three:

/* old native call using 32-bit time_t */
#if defined(CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME) && !defined (CONFIG_64BIT)
SYSCALL_DEFINE5(ppoll, struct pollfd __user *, ufds, unsigned int, nfds,
                struct __kernel_old_timespec __user *, tsp, const
sigset_t __user *, sigmask,
                size_t, sigsetsize)
...
#endif

/* new native call using 64-bit time_t */
SYSCALL_DEFINE5(ppoll, struct pollfd __user *, ufds, unsigned int, nfds,
                struct __kernel_timespec __user *, tsp, const sigset_t
__user *, sigmask,
                size_t, sigsetsize)
...

#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT
#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME
/* handler for 32-bit time_t, both native and compat */
COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE5(ppoll, struct pollfd __user *, ufds,
        unsigned int,  nfds, struct compat_timespec __user *, tsp,
        const compat_sigset_t __user *, sigmask, compat_size_t, sigsetsize)
...
#endif /* CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME */

/* compat handler for 64-bit time_t on 64-bit kernel */
#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT
COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE5(ppoll_time64, struct pollfd __user *, ufds,
        unsigned int,  nfds, struct __kernel_timespec __user *, tsp,
        const compat_sigset_t __user *, sigmask, compat_size_t, sigsetsize)
...
#endif /* CONFIG_COMPAT


I prototyped that approach now and ended up with
(relative to my current tested version):

 fs/aio.c        |  70 ++++++++++++++++------
 fs/select.c     | 181 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++-----
 kernel/signal.c |  35 ++++++++++-
 net/compat.c    |  31 ++++++++++
 net/socket.c    |  21 ++++---
 5 files changed, 293 insertions(+), 45 deletions(-)

Full diff is at https://pastebin.com/j8USJpLq. I've changed ppoll, pselect6,
recvmmsg, rt_sigtimedwait, and io_pgetevents here; waitid() was already
done with four entry points, which happened to be simpler there either
way. There are now around 270 lines of additional duplicated system call
definitions, but in return the code does make more sense that way. Some of
that duplication (in particular in fs/select.c) can probably be recovered by
rearranging the code. By fully decoupling the 32-bit time handling from
compat mode, we also need yet another timespec variant besides
timespec (long/long), timespec64 (kernel internal s64/long),
__kernel_timespec (uapi s64/s64), and compat_timespec (s32/s32),
or rename all instances of compat_timespec to __kernel_timespec32.

I'm not convinced that one way or another is better here, please let me know
what you think.

I think it should have '32' in the name, otherwise it might lead to confusion
regarding the size, as we also need legacy types that use 'long' (either
32-bit or 64-bit) seconds, besides the modern types that are always
64-bit.

In the previous patches, we introduced in the uapi

__kernel_timespec:     always 64-bit (both seconds and nanoseconds)
__kernel_old_timeval: replaces timeval (variable 'long' seconds/nanoseconds)

The __kernel_ prefix here signifies structures that are used in the
uapi headers and are possibly included in user space but must not
conflict with user space defined types like 'timeval' that can use either
'long' or 'long long' seconds in user space.

I would suggest we use __kernel_old_timespec for the equivalent
timespec variant (long/long) for consistency. I originally thought we
wouldn't need that one, but now it looks more likely that we do.
I still think we won't need a 64-bit '__kernel_timeval' type, but
it depends on what we do about getrusage(), getitimer() and
adjtimex().

For the pure 32-bit types, I'd prefer 'old' over 'legacy', which is
similar to the existing  __kernel_old_dev_t, __kernel_gid_t, and
__kernel_old_uid_t types, but we don't need the __kernel_
prefix because we would not use them in uapi headers.

I don't see a need for replacing compat_time_t right now
(I may be missing something I had in mind earlier), but
for timespec/timeval/itimerspec, how about old_timespec32,
old_timeval32 and old_itimerspec32 to replace
compat_timespec, compat_timeval and compat_itimerspec?

For itimerval, we probably need a __kernel_old_itimerval,
but no __kernel_itimerval or old_itimerval, similar to what we
do for timeval.
