Commit Message

Nathan Chancellor Nov. 19, 2020, 8:46 p.m. UTC
Currently, '--orphan-handling=warn' is spread out across four different
architectures in their respective Makefiles, which makes it a little
unruly to deal with in case it needs to be disabled for a specific
linker version (in this case, ld.lld 10.0.1).

To make it easier to control this, hoist this warning into Kconfig and
the main Makefile so that disabling it is simpler, as the warning will
only be enabled in a couple places (main Makefile and a couple of
compressed boot folders that blow away LDFLAGS_vmlinx) and making it
conditional is easier due to Kconfig syntax. One small additional
benefit of this is saving a call to ld-option on incremental builds
because we will have already evaluated it for CONFIG_LD_ORPHAN_WARN.

To keep the list of supported architectures the same, introduce
CONFIG_ARCH_WANT_LD_ORPHAN_WARN, which an architecture can select to
gain this automatically after all of the sections are specified and size
asserted. A special thanks to Kees Cook for the help text on this
config.

v1 -> v2:

* Change

  ifeq ($(CONFIG_LD_ORPHAN_WARN),y)

  to

  ifdef CONFIG_LD_ORPHAN_WARN

  to improve readability (Michael Ellerman)

* Separate conditions for CONFIG_LD_ORPHAN warn to improve
  readability (Kees Cook)

* Pick up tags from Kees, Michael, and Nick

Masahiro, do you want to take these to get them to Linus for v5.10? I
can send them if you'd prefer.

Sorry for the delay.

Applied to linux-kbuild.
