This series kills the long standing MODVERDIR.

Since MODVERDIR has a flat structure, it cannot avoid a race
condition when somebody introduces a module name conflict.

Kbuild now reads modules.order to get the list of all modules.

The post-processing/installation stages will be more robust
and simpler.

Currently, $(objtree)/modules.order is touched in two places.

In the 'prepare0' rule, scripts/Makefile.build creates an empty
modules.order while processing 'obj=.'

In the 'modules' rule, the top-level Makefile overwrites it with
the correct list of modules.

While this might be a good side-effect that modules.order is made
empty every time (probably this is not intended functionality),
I personally do not like this behavior.

Create modules.order only when it is sensible to do so.

This avoids creating the following pointless files:

  scripts/basic/modules.order
  scripts/dtc/modules.order
  scripts/gcc-plugins/modules.order
  scripts/genksyms/modules.order
  scripts/mod/modules.order
  scripts/modules.order
  scripts/selinux/genheaders/modules.order
  scripts/selinux/mdp/modules.order
  scripts/selinux/modules.order

Going forward, $(objtree)/modules.order lists the modules that
was built in the last successful build.

Removing the 'kernel/' prefix will make our life easier because we can
simply do 'cat modules.order' to get all built modules with full paths.

Currently, we parse the first line of '*.mod' files in $(MODVERDIR).
Since we have duplicated functionality here, I plan to remove MODVERDIR
entirely.

In fact, modules.order is generated also for external modules in a
broken format. It adds the 'kernel/' prefix to the absolute path of
the module, like this:

  kernel//path/to/your/external/module/foo.ko

This is fine for now since modules.order is not used for external
modules. However, I want to sanitize the format everywhere towards
the goal of removing MODVERDIR.

We cannot change the format of installed module.{order,builtin}.
So, 'make modules_install' will add the 'kernel/' prefix while copying
them to $(MODLIB)/.

Currently, only the top-level modules.order drops duplicated entries.

The modules.order files in sub-directories potentially contain
duplication. To list out the paths of all modules, I want to use
modules.order instead of parsing *.mod files in $(MODVERDIR).

To achieve this, I want to rip off duplication from modules.order
of external modules too.

The modules_sign target is only supported for in-kernel modules.
So, this commit does not take care of external modules.

While descending directories, Kbuild produces objects for modules,
but do not link final *.ko files; it is done in the modpost.

To keep track of modules, Kbuild creates a *.mod file in $(MODVERDIR)
for every module it is building. Some post-processing steps read the
necessary information from *.mod files. This avoids descending into
directories again. This mechanism was introduced in 2003 or so.

Later, commit 551559e13af1 ("kbuild: implement modules.order") added
modules.order. So, we can simply read it out to know all the modules
with directory paths. This is easier than parsing the first line of
*.mod files.

$(MODVERDIR) has a flat directory structure, that is, *.mod files
are named only with base names. This is based on the assumption that
the module name is unique across the tree. This assumption is really
fragile.

Stephen Rothwell reported a race condition caused by a module name
conflict:

  https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/5/13/991

In parallel building, two different threads could write to the same
$(MODVERDIR)/*.mod simultaneously.

Non-unique module names are the source of all kind of troubles, hence
commit 3a48a91901c5 ("kbuild: check uniqueness of module names")
introduced a new checker script.

However, it is still fragile in the build system point of view because
this race happens before scripts/modules-check.sh is invoked. If it
happens again, the modpost will emit unclear error messages.

To fix this issue completely, create *.mod in the same directory as
*.ko so that two threads never attempt to write to the same file.
$(MODVERDIR) is no longer needed.

Since modules with directory paths are listed in modules.order, Kbuild
is still able to find *.mod files without additional descending.

The current format of *.mod is like this:

  line 1: directory path to the .ko file
  line 2: a list of objects linked into this module
  line 3: unresolved symbols (only when CONFIG_TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS=y)

Now that *.mod and *.ko are created in the same directory, the line 1
provides no valuable information. It can be derived by replacing the
extension .mod with .ko.

Cut the first line.

Currently, *.mod is created as a side-effect of obj-m.

Split out *.mod as a dedicated build rule, which allows to unify
the %.c -> %.o rule, and remove the single-used-m rule.

This also makes the incremental build of allmodconfig faster because
it saves $(NM) invocation when there is no change in the module.

Hi Masahiro,

I'm following this patchset changes as they will affect the klp-convert
series [1] that the livepatching folks have been working on...

Just wondering if these other files should be checked for more MODVERDIR
fallout:

  % grep -R 'tmp_versions'
  tools/power/cpupower/debug/kernel/Makefile:     - rm -rf .tmp_versions* Module.symvers modules.order
  scripts/export_report.pl:    while (<.tmp_versions/*.mod>) {
  scripts/adjust_autoksyms.sh:# .tmp_versions/*.mod files.

export_report.pl is probably the only interesting one on this list.

Also, can you cc me on subsequent patchset versions?

Thanks,

-- Joe

Empty files .tmp_versions/*.livepatch are touched
to keep track of 'LIVEPATCH_* := y', right?

Perhaps, adding a new field
to *.mod files might be cleaner.

Good catch. I will fix it.

Yes, will do.

Pretty much.  From that patchset I think the rework would need to  modify..

- [PATCH v4 02/10] kbuild: Support for Symbols.list creation: creates a 
Symbols.list file of kernel and module symbols, but *not* including any 
from LIVEPATCH_* modules.

- [PATCH v4 05/10] modpost: Integrate klp-convert: if a LIVEPATCH_* 
module has changed, call a newly introduced klp-convert script on it.

- [PATCH v4 06/10] modpost: Add modinfo flag to livepatch modules: find 
any LIVEPATCH_* mod, add it to a livepatchmods file, then pass that file 
to modpost

> Perhaps, adding a new field
> to *.mod files might be cleaner.

I can look into that.  By "field" you mean a new row in the file?
