vDSO (virtual dynamic shared object) is a mechanism that the Linux
kernel provides as an alternative to system calls to reduce where
possible the costs in terms of cycles.
This is possible because certain syscalls like gettimeofday() do
not write any data and return one or more values that are stored
in the kernel, which makes relatively safe calling them directly
as a library function.

Even if the mechanism is pretty much standard, every architecture
in the last few years ended up implementing their own vDSO library
in the architectural code.

The purpose of this patch-set is to identify the commonalities in
between the architectures and try to consolidate the common code
paths, starting with gettimeofday().

This implementation contains the following design choices:
 * Every architecture defines the arch specific code in an header in
   "asm/vdso/".
 * The generic implementation includes the arch specific one and lives
   in "lib/vdso".
 * The arch specific code for gettimeofday lives in
   "<arch path>/vdso/gettimeofday.c" and includes the generic code only.
 * This approach allows to consolidate the common code in a single place
   with the benefit of avoiding code duplication.

This implementation contains the portings to the common library for: arm64,
compat mode for arm64, arm, mips, x86_64, compat mode for x86_64 and i386.

The mips porting has been tested on qemu for mips32el. A configuration to
repeat the tests can be found at [4].

The x86_64 porting has been tested on an Intel Xeon 5120T based machine
running Ubuntu 18.04 and using the Ubuntu provided defconfig.

The i386 porting has been tested on qemu using the i386_defconfig
configuration.

Last but not least from this porting arm64, compat arm64, arm and mips gain
the support for:
 * CLOCK_BOOTTIME that can be useful in certain scenarios since it keeps
   track of the time during sleep as well.
 * CLOCK_TAI that is like CLOCK_REALTIME, but uses the International
   Atomic Time (TAI) reference instead of UTC to avoid jumping on leap
   second updates.
for both clock_gettime and clock_getres.

The porting has been validated using the vdsotest test-suite [1] extended
to cover all the clock ids [2].

A new test has been added to the linux kselftest in order to validate the
newly added library.

To simplify the testing, a copy of the patchset on top of a recent linux
tree can be found at [3] and [4].

This is moving into the right direction. Good job!

I tried applying the series on top of v5.0-rc7, and got a set of
build warnings with arm64 defconfig:

I think this is all harmless, but we need to limit the set of header files
that can be included indirectly when compiling the vdso in arm32 mode.

Hi Arnd,

thank you for testing my code.

I agree with you on the principle, but I am unable to replicate the warnings.
Did you make any customization to the default defconfig? What is the top
commit-id you have on your tree?

I observed this on top of v5.0-rc7 earlier, and have since rebased to
today's linux-next, where it still happens with the regular 'make defconfig',
on all compiler versions I have (4.8 through 8.1).

Thanks, I will try to rebase my patches on linux-next and see if I can reproduce it.

I just found a related issue: when CONFIG_CPU_BIG_ENDIAN is
set, everything breaks in the compat vdso because of the included
arm64 headers in arm32 code. That should be easier to reproduce.
For the moment, I'm using this patch:

--- a/arch/arm64/Kconfig
+++ b/arch/arm64/Kconfig
@@ -103,7 +103,7 @@ config ARM64
        select GENERIC_STRNLEN_USER

+       select GENERIC_COMPAT_VDSO if !CPU_BIG_ENDIAN
        select HANDLE_DOMAIN_IRQ
        select HARDIRQS_SW_RESEND
        select HAVE_PCI

Thanks for this, but I can't still reproduce the issue.

I rebased my patches on:
commit 42fd8df9d1d9c83046226e771a4f5f3d05a706ff (tag: next-20190228,
linux-next/master)

and enabled CONFIG_CPU_BIG_ENDIAN.
