2007-07-16kbuild: add support for reading stdin with gen_init_cpioMike Frysinger1-1/+3
Treat an argument of "-" as meaning "read stdin for cpio files" so gen_init_cpio can be piped into. Signed-off-by: Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
2007-07-16.gitignore updateAlexey Dobriyan1-0/+1
headers_install by default puts headers into usr/include/ . They're auto-generated, so should be ignored. Same for *.orig, *.rej .

2007-02-11[PATCH] usr/gen_init_cpio.c: support for hard linksLuciano Rocha1-36/+86
Extend usr/gen_init_cpio.c "file" entry, adding support for hard links. Previous format: file <name> <location> <mode> <uid> <gid> New format: file <name> <location> <mode> <uid> <gid> [<hard links>] The hard links specification is optional, keeping the previous behaviour. All hard links are defined sequentially in the resulting cpio and the file data is present only in the last link. This is the behaviour of GNU's cpio and is supported by the kernel initramfs extractor.

2007-02-11[PATCH] disable init/initramfs.cJean-Paul Saman1-1/+1
The file init/initramfs.c is always compiled and linked in the kernel vmlinux even when BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INITRD are disabled and the system isn't using any form of an initramfs or initrd. In this situation the code is only used to unpack a (static) default initial rootfilesystem. The current init/initramfs.c code. usr/initramfs_data.o compiles to a size of ~15 kbytes. Disabling BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INTRD shrinks the kernel code size with ~60 Kbytes. This patch avoids compiling in the code and data for initramfs support if CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not defined. Instead of the initramfs code and data it uses a small routine in init/noinitramfs.c to setup an initial static default environment for mounting a rootfilesystem later on in the kernel initialisation process. The new code is: 164 bytes of size. The patch is separated in two parts: 1) doesn't compile initramfs code when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set 2) changing all plaforms vmlinux.lds.S files to not reserve an area of PAGE_SIZE when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set.

2006-11-25[PATCH] initramfs: handle more than one source dir or file listThomas Chou1-1/+1
Fix bug 7401. Handle more than one source dir or file list to the initramfs gen scripts. The Kconfig help for INITRAMFS_SOURCE claims that you can specify multiple space-separated sources in order to allow unprivileged users to build an image. There are two bugs in the current implementation that prevent this from working. First, we pass "file1 dir2" to the gen_initramfs_list.sh script, which it obviously can't open. Second, gen_initramfs_list.sh -l outputs multiple definitions for deps_initramfs -- one for each argument.

2006-09-25kbuild: consistently decide when to rebuild a targetSam Ravnborg1-0/+2
Consistently decide when to rebuild a target across all of if_changed, if_changed_dep, if_changed_rule. PHONY targets are now treated alike (ignored) for all targets While add it make Kbuild.include almost readable by factoring out a few bits to some common variables and reuse this in Makefile.build.

2006-08-07kbuild: do not try to build content of initramfsSam Ravnborg1-0/+3
When a file supplied via CONFIG_INITRAMFS pointed to a file for which kbuild had a rule to compile it (foo.c => foo.o) then kbuild would compile the file before adding the file to the initramfs. Teach make that files included in initramfs shall not be updated by adding an 'empty command'. (See "Using Empty Commands" in info make). Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

2006-04-11kbuild: rebuild initramfs if content of initramfs changesSam Ravnborg1-54/+37
initramfs.cpio.gz being build in usr/ and included in the kernel was not rebuild when the included files changed. To fix this the following was done: - let gen_initramfs.sh generate a list of files and directories included in the initramfs - gen_initramfs generate the gzipped cpio archive so we could simplify the kbuild file (Makefile) - utilising the kbuild infrastructure so when uid/gid root mapping changes the initramfs will be rebuild With this change we have a much more robust initramfs generation.

This still leaves driver and architecture-specific subdirectories alone, but gets rid of the bulk of the "generic" generated files that we should ignore. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-08-10kconfig: move initramfs options to General SetupSam Ravnborg1-0/+46
Move initramfs options from Device Drivers | Block Drivers to General Setup This is a more natural place for this option. Furthermore separate out intramfs options to usr/Kconfig Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
2005-07-25kbuild: introduce Kbuild.includeSam Ravnborg1-1/+1
Kbuild.include is a placeholder for definitions originally present in both the top-level Makefile and scripts/Makefile.build. There were a slight difference in the filechk definition, so the most videly used version was kept and usr/Makefile was adopted for this syntax. Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org> ---
2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds3-0/+607
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
