Now that import_iovec handles compat iovecs as well, all the duplicated
code in the compat readv/writev helpers is not needed.  Remove them
and switch the compat syscall handlers to use the native helpers.

Ditto.  Look into include/linux/compat.h and you'll see

asmlinkage long compat_sys_preadv64(unsigned long fd,
                const struct compat_iovec __user *vec,
                unsigned long vlen, loff_t pos);

How does that manage to avoid the compiler screaming bloody
murder?

That's a very good question.  But it does not just compile but actually
works.  Probably because all the syscall wrappers mean that we don't
actually generate the normal names.  I just tried this:

for fun, and the compiler doesn't care either..

FWIW, declarations in syscalls.h used to serve 4 purposes:
	1) syscall table initializers needed symbols declared
	2) direct calls needed the same
	3) catching mismatches between the declarations and definitions
	4) centralized list of all syscalls

(2) has been (thankfully) reduced for some time; in any case, ksys_... is
used for the remaining ones.

(1) and (3) are served by syscalls.h in architectures other than x86, arm64
and s390.  On those 3 (1) is done otherwise (near the syscall table initializer)
and (3) is not done at all.

I wonder if we should do something like

SYSCALL_DECLARE3(readv, unsigned long, fd, const struct iovec __user *, vec,
		 unsigned long, vlen);
in syscalls.h instead, and not under that ifdef.

Let it expand to declaration of sys_...() in generic case and, on x86, into
__do_sys_...() and __ia32_sys_...()/__x64_sys_...(), with types matching
what SYSCALL_DEFINE ends up using.

Similar macro would cover compat_sys_...() declarations.  That would
restore mismatch checking for x86 and friends.  AFAICS, the cost wouldn't
be terribly high - cpp would have more to chew through in syscalls.h,
but it shouldn't be all that costly.  Famous last words, of course...

Does anybody see fundamental problems with that?

Just to make it clear - I do not propose to fold that into this series;
there we just need to keep those declarations in sync with fs/read_write.c

I think this would be a good idea.  I have been working on a patchset
to clean up the conditional syscall handling (sys_ni.c), and conflicts
with the prototypes in syscalls.h have been getting in the way.
Having the prototypes use SYSCALL_DECLAREx(...) would solve that
issue.

Agreed.  The above idea generally sounds sane to me.

I've had some ideas along those lines in the past and I think it should work.

As a variation of this, the SYSCALL_DEFINEx() macros could go away
entirely, leaving only the macro instantiations from the header to
require that syntax. It would require first changing the remaining
architectures to build the syscall table from C code instead of
assembler though.

Regardless of that, another advantage of having the SYSCALL_DECLAREx()
would be the ability to include that header file from elsewhere with a different
macro definition to create a machine-readable version of the interface when
combined with the syscall.tbl files. This could be used to create a user
space stub for calling into the low-level syscall regardless of the
libc interfaces,
or for synchronizing the interfaces with strace, qemu-user, or anything that
needs to deal with the low-level interface.

FWIW, after playing with that for a while...  Do we really want the
compat_sys_...() declarations to live in linux/compat.h?  Most of
the users of that file don't want those; why not move them to
linux/syscalls.h?

Reason: there's a lot more users of linux/compat.h than those of
linux/syscalls.h - it's pulled by everything in the networking stack,
for starters...

Sure, let's do that. The trend overall is to integrate the compat stuff
more closely into where the native implementation lives, so this
would just follow that trend.

I think with Christoph's latest patches, about half of them are
going away as well.

Right, the network headers pull in almost everything else through
multiple indirect inclusions, anything we can do to reduce that
helps.

A similar 'trick' (that probably won't work here) is to pass
the name of a #define function as a parameter to another define.
Useful for defining constants and error strings together. eg:
#define TRAFFIC_LIGHTS(x) \
	x(RED, 0, "Red") \
	x(YELLOW, 1, "Yellow) \
	x(GREEN, 2, "GREEN)

You can then do thing like:
#define x(token, value, string) token = value,
enum {TRAFFIC_LIGHTS(x) NUM_LIGHTS};
#undef x
#define x(token, value, string) [value] = string,
const char *colours[] = {TRAFFIC_LIGHTS(x)};
#undef x
to initialise constants and a name table that are always in sync.

It is also a good way to generate source lines that are over 1MB.
