Subject[RFC v1 0/2] um: drop broken features to fix allyesconfig
From
# TL;DR

This patchset drops two broken features in an attempt to get
allyesconfig closer to working for ARCH=um.

# What am I trying to do?

This patchset is part of my attempt to get `make ARCH=um allyesconfig`
to produce a config that will build *and* boot to init, so that I can
use it as a mechanism to run tests[1].

# How far away are we from an allyesconfig UML kernel?

I have identified 33 Kconfigs that are selected by allyesconfig, but
will either not build on UML, or prevent it from booting. They are:

CONFIG_STATIC_LINK=y
CONFIG_UML_NET_PCAP=y
CONFIG_NET_PTP_CLASSIFY=y
CONFIG_IP_VS=y
CONFIG_BRIDGE_EBT_BROUTE=y
CONFIG_BRIDGE_EBT_T_FILTER=y
CONFIG_BRIDGE_EBT_T_NAT=y
CONFIG_MTD_NAND_CADENCE=y
CONFIG_MTD_NAND_NANDSIM=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_NULL_BLK=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM=y
CONFIG_SCSI_DEBUG=y
CONFIG_NET_VENDOR_XILINX=y
CONFIG_NULL_TTY=y
CONFIG_PTP_1588_CLOCK=y
CONFIG_PINCTRL_EQUILIBRIUM=y
CONFIG_DMABUF_SELFTESTS=y
CONFIG_COMEDI=y
CONFIG_XIL_AXIS_FIFO=y
CONFIG_EXFAT_FS=y
CONFIG_STM_DUMMY=y
CONFIG_FSI_MASTER_ASPEED=y
CONFIG_JFS_FS=y
CONFIG_UBIFS_FS=y
CONFIG_CRAMFS=y
CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_SAFEXCEL=y
CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_AMLOGIC_GXL=y
CONFIG_KCOV=y
CONFIG_LKDTM=y
CONFIG_REED_SOLOMON_TEST=y
CONFIG_TEST_RHASHTABLE=y
CONFIG_TEST_MEMINIT=y
CONFIG_NETWORK_PHY_TIMESTAMPING=y

This patchset attempts to deal with CONFIG_STATIC_LINK=y and
CONFIG_UML_NET_PCAP=y by just removing them since they are broken and
appear to have been broken for some time. (I am aware of the taboo of
dropping configs, but given the amount of time they have been broken, I
figured that I might be able to get away with it in this case, which is
easier than trying to actually fix them.)

I also have a patch out to fix CONFIG_EXFAT_FS=y[2].

After this I plan on going after

CONFIG_PINCTRL_EQUILIBRIUM=y
CONFIG_MTD_NAND_CADENCE=y
CONFIG_FSI_MASTER_ASPEED=y
CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_SAFEXCEL=y
CONFIG_XIL_AXIS_FIFO=y
CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_AMLOGIC_GXL=y
CONFIG_XILINX_AXI_EMAC=y

the problem with these is that they depend on
devm_platform_ioremap_resource without explicitly depending on
CONFIG_HAS_IOMEM=y.

Also note that I don't think that CONFIG_NULL_TTY=y is actually broken
on UML; however, console seems to get assigned to the null TTY by
default when it is enabled, so I added it to the list for the sake of
completeness.

The other broken configs require more investigation (I would welcome
help, if anyone is interested ;-) ).

# Why won't allyesconfig break again after this series of fixes?

As I mentioned above, I am using UML for testing the kernel, and I am
currently working on getting my tests to run on KernelCI. As part of our
testing procedure for KernelCI, we are planning on building a UML kernel
using allyesconfig and running our tests on it. Thus, we will find out
very quickly once someone breaks allyesconfig again once we get this all
working.

um: drivers: remove support for UML_NET_PCAP
uml: remove support for CONFIG_STATIC_LINK
