HYPERVISOR_platform_op() is an inline function and should not
be exported. Since commit 15bfc2348d54 ("modpost: check for
static EXPORT_SYMBOL* functions"), this causes a warning:

WARNING: "HYPERVISOR_platform_op" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL

Remove the extraneous export.

Fixes: 15bfc2348d54 ("modpost: check for static EXPORT_SYMBOL* functions")

Something is wonky.  That symbol is (/ really ought to be) in the
hypercall page and most definitely not inline.

Which tree is that changeset from?  I can't find the SHA.

I hate to open a separate can of worms, but why are they tagged GPL? 
The Xen hypercall ABI, like the Linux syscall ABI, are specifically not
GPL.  Xen has as something very similar to (and probably derived from)
the Linux-syscall-note exception.

It's HYPERVISOR_platform_op_raw that's in the hypercall page afaics.

This is from linux-next, I think from the kbuild tree.

Thanks.

Julien/Stefano: Why are any of these hypercalls out-of-line?  ARM
doesn't use the hypercall page, and there is no argument translation
(not even in arm32 as there are no 5-argument hypercalls declared).

They'd surely be easier to implement with a few static inlines and some
common code, than to try and replicate the x86 side hypercall_page
interface ?

I am not sure how the hypercall page makes things different. You still 
have to store the arguments in the correct register so...

... I don't think they will be easier to implement with a few static 
inlines. The implementation will likely end up to be similar to 
arch/x86/asm/xen/hypercall.h.

Furthermore, one of the downside of per-arch static inline is it is more 
difficult to ensure the prototype match for all the architectures. 
Although, it might be possible to make them common by only requesting 
per-arch to implement HYPERCALL_N(...).

So I think the code is better as it is.

While looking at the code, I also realized that the implementation of 
HYPERCALL_dm_op might be incorrect for Arm32. Similarly do privcmd call, 
I think dm_op call should enable user access as they will be used by 
userspace.

We don't use dm_op on Arm so far, hence why I think this was unnoticed. 
I will see if I can reproduce it and send a patch.

I'm seeing this when building arm64 defconfig v5.4-rc1:

| [mark@lakrids:~/src/linux]% usekorg 8.1.0  make ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux- -j56 -s
| arch/arm64/Makefile:62: CROSS_COMPILE_COMPAT not defined or empty, the compat vDSO will not be built
| WARNING: "HYPERVISOR_platform_op" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL
| WARNING: "HYPERVISOR_platform_op" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL

I couldn't see a follow-up; do you have a patch for this?

Thanks,
Mark.

The first e-mail of the thread should contain a patch to address the warning 
(see [1]). But it is still waiting on an Ack from Stefano so it can get merged.

Ah, sorry. I misunderstood what you were planning to send a patch for,
and assumed you were going to propose an alternative to Arnd's patch.

Stefano, do you see any problem with Arnd's patch? If not, it would be
good to get this merged soon.

Thanks,
Mark.

Hi Arnd, 

Thank you for the patch. HYPERVISOR_platform_op() is an inline function,
the underlying function that should be exported is
HYPERVISOR_platform_op_raw. So, instead of removing
HYPERVISOR_platform_op, we should change it to
HYPERVISOR_platform_op_raw.

For convenience, and for testing I cooked up a patch. Arnd, if you are
happy with it (in the sense that it solves your problem) we'll check it
in the xentip tree, unless you would like to get it in your tree?

Cheers,

Stefano

HYPERVISOR_platform_op() is an inline function and should not
be exported. Since commit 15bfc2348d54 ("modpost: check for
static EXPORT_SYMBOL* functions"), this causes a warning:

WARNING: "HYPERVISOR_platform_op" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL

Instead, export the underlying function called by the static inline:
HYPERVISOR_platform_op_raw.

Ok, that makes sense.

Note that there are obviously no callers from any loadable modules in the
kernel, all users are in built-in code at the moment. As an API definition
it still makes sense though.
