Subject: [PATCH v4 0/4] cleaning up the sysctls table (hung_task watchdog)
Date: Tue, 19 May 2020 11:31:07 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1589859071-25898-1-git-send-email-nixiaoming@huawei.com> (raw)

Kernel/sysctl.c contains more than 190 interface files, and there are a 
large number of config macro controls. When modifying the sysctl 
interface directly in kernel/sysctl.c, conflicts are very easy to occur.
E.g: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/99095805-8cbe-d140-e2f1-0c5a3e84d7e7@huawei.com/

Use register_sysctl() to register the sysctl interface to avoid
merge conflicts when different features modify sysctl.c at the same time.

So consider cleaning up the sysctls table, details are in:
   https://kernelnewbies.org/KernelProjects/proc
   https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200513141421.GP11244@42.do-not-panic.com/#t

The current patch set extracts register_sysctl_init and some sysctl_vals
variables, and clears the interface of hung_task and watchdog in sysctl.c.

The current patch set is based on linux-next, commit 72bc15d0018ebfbc9
("Add linux-next specific files for 20200518").

changes in v4:
  Handle the conflict with the commit d4ee116819ed714f ("kernel/hung_task.c:
  introduce sysctl to print all traces when a hung task is detected"),
  move the sysctl interface hung_task_all_cpu_backtrace to hung_task.c.

V3: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1589774397-42485-1-git-send-email-nixiaoming@huawei.com/
  base on commit b9bbe6ed63b2b9 ("Linux 5.7-rc6")
changes in v3:
  1. make hung_task_timeout_max to be const
  2. fix build warning:
     kernel/watchdog.c:779:14: warning: initialization discards 'const'
         qualifier from pointer target type [-Wdiscarded-qualifiers]
         .extra2  = &sixty,
                    ^

V2: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1589619315-65827-1-git-send-email-nixiaoming@huawei.com/
changes in v2:
  1. Adjusted the order of patches, first do public function
     extraction, then do feature code movement
  2. Move hung_task sysctl to hung_task.c instead of adding new file
  3. Extract multiple common variables instead of only neg_one, and keep
     the order of member values in sysctl_vals
  4. Add const modification to the variable sixty in watchdog sysctl

V1: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1589517224-123928-1-git-send-email-nixiaoming@huawei.com/

  sysctl: Add register_sysctl_init() interface
  sysctl: Move some boundary constants form sysctl.c to sysctl_vals
  hung_task: Move hung_task sysctl interface to hung_task.c
  watchdog: move watchdog sysctl interface to watchdog.c
