Hi all,

Since the merge of the C VDSO I see we are repeatedly rebuilding some
files in the VDSO, eg:

  $ make V=2
  make[1]: Entering directory '/home/michael/linux/build~'
    GEN     Makefile
    CALL    /home/michael/linux/scripts/checksyscalls.sh - due to target missing
    CALL    /home/michael/linux/scripts/atomic/check-atomics.sh - due to target missing
    CHK     include/generated/compile.h
    CC      arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64/vgettimeofday.o - due to vgettimeofday.o not in $(targets)

This then causes multiple other files to be rebuilt.

So the obvious fix is to add it to targets:



But then I see it still rebuilt:

  CC      arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64/vgettimeofday.o - due to command line change


I'm not changing the command line, and AFAICS the .cmd file is not
changing either:

  $ make V=2
  ...
    CC      arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64/vgettimeofday.o - due to command line change
  
  $ sha256sum build\~/arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64/vgettimeofday.o
  7f635546bc2768c7b929d3de1724d83285f3cd54394fcd7104f8b1301d689d65  build~/arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64/vgettimeofday.o
  
  $ make V=2
  ...
    CC      arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64/vgettimeofday.o - due to command line change
  
  $ sha256sum build\~/arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64/vgettimeofday.o
  7f635546bc2768c7b929d3de1724d83285f3cd54394fcd7104f8b1301d689d65  build~/arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64/vgettimeofday.o


So any hints on what I'm missing here?

cheers

This is because PPC builds the vdso twice
with different command arguments.


First time:

vdso_prepare: prepare0
         $(if $(CONFIG_VDSO32),$(Q)$(MAKE) \
                 $(build)=arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso32
include/generated/vdso32-offsets.h)
         $(if $(CONFIG_PPC64),$(Q)$(MAKE) \
                 $(build)=arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso64
include/generated/vdso64-offsets.h)


Second time:
   from  arch/powerpc/kernel/Makefile





For the first build, -Werror is missing because
Kbuild directly descends into arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso[32,64]/.


For the second build,

arch/powerpc/Kbuild appends the following:

subdir-ccflags-$(CONFIG_PPC_WERROR) := -Werror

This is very dangerous because the vdso offsets are wrong.

I think ppc followed arm64 implementation.

Let me figure out how to fix arm64 vdso.
