Hello,

the kbuild-dont-put-temp-files-in-the-source-tree.patch (-mm patches) is
implemented faultily and fails in its intention to put temporary files
in $TMPDIR (or /tmp by default).

This is the code as it results from the patch:

ASTMP = $(shell mktemp ${TMPDIR:-/tmp}/asXXXXXX)
as-instr = $(shell if echo -e "$(1)" | $(AS) >/dev/null 2>&1 -W -Z -o $ASTMP ; \
 		   then echo "$(2)"; else echo "$(3)"; fi; \
	           rm -f $ASTMP)

1) $ needs to be escaped in the shell function call, otherwise make
   tries to substitute with a (in this case not existing) make variable
   with this name.

2) Makefile variable names need to be put in parentheses; $ASTMP is
   being interpreted as $(A)STMP, resulting in as-instr writing to a file
   named after whatever is in $(A), followed by "STMP".

3) ld-option also writes to a temporary file and needs the same
   treatment.

Please consider using the corrected patch below instead. Alternatively,
we could also simply use -o /dev/null, as we are not interested in the
output anyways. Daniel Drake already suggested this in a LKML post
(message-id 452F9602.1050906@gentoo.org).

It would also be nice if this would make it into the mainline kernel
before 2.6.19 gets released; this would help avoiding the sandbox
violation problems on Gentoo Linux [1] [2].

Kind regards,
 Horst Schirmeier

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7261 berates us for putting a
temporary file into the kernel source tree.  Use mktemp instead.

I'm still against mktemp. It eats random entropy and
temporary files should be in the objdir, not in /tmp

TBH, I don't see the necessity of temporary files at all in this case,
but I assumed there must be a reason for them as the change already made
it into the -mm tree.

Why not use -o /dev/null, as Daniel Drake already suggested in [1]? In
both as-instr and ld-option, the tmp file is being deleted
unconditionally right after its creation anyways.

The attached patch is adapted from the patches proposed in [2], redone
as a replacement for
kbuild-dont-put-temp-files-in-the-source-tree.patch. Comments?

Kind regards,
 Horst

Do not write temporary files in as-instr and ld-option but write to
/dev/null, as the output is not being used anyways.

Because then when the compilation runs as root some as versions
will delete /dev/null on a error. This has happened in the past.

OK, but let users, who still build kernels as root, alone.

In `19-rc3/include/Kbuild.include', just below `as-instr' i see:
,--
|cc-option = $(shell if $(CC) $(CFLAGS) $(1) -S -o /dev/null -xc /dev/null \
|             > /dev/null 2>&1; then echo "$(1)"; else echo "$(2)"; fi ;)
|
|# cc-option-yn
|# Usage: flag := $(call cc-option-yn, -march=winchip-c6)
|cc-option-yn = $(shell if $(CC) $(CFLAGS) $(1) -S -o /dev/null -xc /dev/null \
|                 > /dev/null 2>&1; then echo "y"; else echo "n"; fi;)
`--
so, change to `-o /dev/null' in `as-instr' will just follow this.

This needs to work - there are too much people that continue to do so.
And gentoo books recommended this last time I looked.

gcc does not delete files specified with -o - but binutils does.
So using /dev/null in this case is not an option.

While I fixed this quite some time ago (after running into it myself), it
obviously still is a problem with older versions. However, using as' -Z
option seems to help here.
On the other hand, I long wanted to compose a patch to do away
with all the .tmp_* things at the build root, and move them into a
single .tmp/ directory - this would also seem to make a nice place to
put all sort of other temporary files in... I just never found the time
to actually do that, sorry.

Hmm. What's the preblem to invoke `as' via the GNU C compiler, then?

Maybe it's good idea, let me try, as i already bound to kbuild fixes.

But now, i'm just using KBUILD_OUTPUT=/tmp/, and /tmp/ is /dev/shm/.
It speeds up things on testing and small amounts of stuff to build.
Source tree is for patching only.

So, how about (using your btmp directory) create symlink to /dev/null in
the (dev) sub-directory and then set no write permission? No tmp,
things are local to build output, old gas's happy:
,__
|olecom@flower:/tmp/_build_2.6.19-rc3/btmp
!__$ mkdir dev
,__
|olecom@flower:/tmp/_build_2.6.19-rc3/btmp

drwxr-x--- 3 olecom root 80 2006-10-30 15:34 ..

New featured dev/null may be set in some kind of make variable, say
$(null) in scripts/Kbuild.include.

Did you try this as root, which is where the original "/dev/null dissapears"
problem shows up?

[/tmp]3 id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm),6(disk),10(wheel) context=valdis:staff_r:staff_t
[/tmp]3 mkdir z9
[/tmp]3 touch z9/foo
[/tmp]3 chmod 0 z9
[/tmp]3 rm z9/foo
[/tmp]3 ln -s /dev/null z9
[/tmp]3 ls -l z9
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Oct 30 10:20 null -> /dev/null
[/tmp]3 rm z9/null
[/tmp]3 ls -ld z9
d--------- 2 root root 40 Oct 30 10:21 z9

Hmm.. and even the 'ln' worked even when z9 was chmod 0. ;)

Well, i've said already about roots in post above.
This fix is for needless mktemp and old binutils.

Fix for roots:

For current state of things, i wish to propose

kbuild-mm-more-option-check-fixes.pre-patch:

Request For Testing.

Interested parties may test this one.
$(ret) is used for debug. In final version it may be removed,
$(objtree)/null must be known for clean targets.

I've replaced one `echo -e' with `printf', because, for example, my shell is
not bash, and built-in `echo' have not `-e' option, `printf' works everywhere.
[trailing spaces killed: +1]

Any comments are appreciated.

The problem is, this brings us back to the problem where this whole
patch orgy began: Gentoo Portage sandbox violations when writing (the
null symlink) to the kernel tree when building external modules. What
about using $(M) as a base directory if it is defined?

I think Jan's $(objdir)/.tmp proposal would be cleanest. Just someone
has to implement it :)

Another remark: the 'else' branch should echo null, too.

# Immortal null for mortals and roots
define null
  $(shell \
    if test ! -L null; \
      then rm -f null; ln -s /dev/null null; \

My patch proposal (the $(M) one) has the same bug.

Kind regards,
 Horst

I'm not sure what you mean by $(objdir); I just got something to work
which creates the /dev/null symlink in a (newly created if necessary)
directory named

$(firstword $(obj-dirs) $(M))/.tmp

which seems to be a good place for both normal kernel builds and
external modules. External module builds seem not to set $(obj-dirs)...
Objections?

Kind regards,
 Horst

Obviously. That was my wrong optimization step.

$(objtree) here,

> which creates the /dev/null symlink in a (newly created if necessary)

$(objtree) is a directory for all possible outputs of the build precess,
it's set up by `O=' or `KBUILD_OUTPUT', and this is *not* output for ready
external modules `$(M)'. Try to play with this, please.

I'm looking for Sam to say something, if we must go further with this.

How about using this:

ASTMP := $(if $(KBUILD_EXTMOD),$(firstword $(KBUILD_EXTMOD))/)astest$$$$.out

This is also used in the Makefile in the source tree top-level
directory (see line 332)
If KBUILD_EXTMOD is used, temp files are created in the module's
source directory, otherwise in the kernel source top-level directory

So, i think this is much better than mktemp and friends.
Current -mm have +4 temp files after every make help, make, make something.

I'm steel looking forward for comments from (busy) developers, like Sam.

Now i have my laptop back and i can finish this up. Hm?

I'm using 'O=' as good way to have clean kernel source directory,

Kind of fix has finally landed. Instead for `O=/$dir' a patch...

Anyway i whould like propose my solution of:
-- external modules build without KBUILD_OUTPUT set;
-- /dev/null, GNU binutils and root users;
-- beauty;

For external modules, there must be information after
`make modules_prepare' in shipped linux-sources. Any build output is
put in $(objtree), and i don't understand why you don't using that.
Please, *try* `make O=/tmp/build M=/usr/local/src/nvatia'. Thank you.

As some kind of buga-feature, "null" isn't in any clean/mrproper
target (for a while ;).

-*- patch -*-
kbuild: improving option checking

 GNU binutils, root users, tmpfiles, external modules ro builds must
 be fixed to do the right thing now.

 In "safe" environment new /dev/null replacement may be used as simply as
 `echo > null', `gcc -o null'. In aggressive starting with $(null) is
 recommended.

 Feature: file $(objtree)/null isn't in any "clear" target (yet).
