Static analyzer is not happy:

kernel/printk/printk.c:421:1: warning: symbol 'log_wait' was not declared. Should it be static?

This is due to usage of log_wait in the other module without announcing
its declaration to the world. I wasn't able to dug into deep history of
reasons why it is so, and thus decide to make less invasive change, i.e.
declaring log_wait as external variable to make static analyzer happy.

Note the above is done if and only if the CONFIG_PROC_FS is enabled,
otherwise we fallback to static variable.

Since we are now introducing CONFIG_PROC_FS dependency to printk (and
proc/kmsg already has CONFIG_PRINTK dependency), then I guess I wouldn't
mind it if fs/proc/kmsg would just relocate to printk, next to devksmg
implementation. Just saying.

I'm not sure I understood. The above does not introduce any dependencies.

kernel/printk/printk.c
 +#ifdef CONFIG_PROC_FS
 ..

Not exactly "dependency"... what is the correct word here.

Maybe "ifdeferry" ?

This looks too complicated as a workaround for a warning.

I got really confused. Probably also because the macro DECLARE_*()
does a definition instead of a declaration.

As a minimal fix, I suggest to rename log_wait -> printk_log_wait
and declare it in include/linux/printk.h.

Even better solution might be to move fs/proc/kmsg.c to
kernel/printk/proc_kmsg.c and declare printk_log_wait only
in kernel/printk/internal.h. I think that this is what
Sergey suggested.

Another great thing would be to extract devkmsg stuff from
kernel/printk/printk.c and put it into kernel/printk/dev_kmsg.c.

I am not sure but it might help people to realize that there
are actually two different interfaces (old in /proc dmesg-like,
and in /dev new for systemd). Sigh.

I am not sure how deep and far you would like to go ;-)

Best Regards,
Petr

Yes, right.

Yeah, can do, I would still prefer proc_kmsg to "move in".
Either both can live in printk.c (won't make it much worse),
or in kernel/printk/dev_kmsg.c and kernel/printk/proc_kmsg.c

I can take a look at dev_ksmg.c/proc_kmsg.c option, unless
someone else wants to spend their time on this.

I would prefer to split it:

    + printk.c is already too big and would deserve splitting.

    + The two different kmgs interfaces are confusing on its
      own. IMHO, it will be even more confusing when they
      live in one huge source file.

It would be lovely from my POV. I am only concerned about
the lockless printk() stuff. I would prefer to avoid creating
too many conflicts in the same merge window. Well, I am
not sure how many conflicts there would be. Adding John
into CC.

Petr

I would also love to see these changes. But can we _please_ focus on the
lockless printk ringbuffer merge first? The patches already exist and
are (hopefully) being reviewed. I would prefer that such a heavy API
replacement is done _before_ we start any massive refactoring.
