io_pgetevents is new in linux commit
rseq is new in linux commit
this will allow the compiler to cache and reuse the result, meaning we
no longer have to take care not to load it more than once for the sake
of archs where the load may be expensive.
depends on commit 1c84c99913bf1cd47b866ed31e665848a0da84a2 for
correctness, since otherwise the compiler could hoist loads during
stage 3 of dynamic linking before the initial thread-pointer setup.
versions of clang all the way back to 3.1 lack the bug this was
purportedly working around.
unlike other asm where the baseline ISA is used, these functions are
hot paths and use ISA-level specializations.
call-clobbered vfp registers are saved before calling __tls_get_new,
since there is no guarantee it won't use them. while setjmp/longjmp
have to use hwcap to decide whether to the fpu is in use, since
application code could be using vfp registers even if libc was
compiled as pure softfloat, __tls_get_new is part of libc and can be
assumed not to have access to vfp registers if tlsdesc.S does not.
thus it suffices just to check the predefined preprocessor macros. the
check for __ARM_PCS_VFP is redundant; !__SOFTFP__ must always be true
if the target ISA level includes fpu instructions/registers.
These should have been added in commit
that added target specific PTRACE_ macros, but somehow got missed.
in our memory model, all atomics are supposed to be full barriers;
stores are not release-only. this is important because store is used
as an unlock operation in places where it needs to acquire the waiter
count to determine if a futex wake is needed. at least in the
malloc-internal locks, but possibly elsewhere, soft deadlocks from
missing futex wake (breakable by poking the threads to restart the
syscall, e.g. by attaching a tracer) were reported to occur.
once the malloc lock is replaced with Jens Gustedt's new lock
implementation (see commit 47d0bcd4762f223364e5b58d5a381aaa0cbd7c38),
malloc will not be affected by the issue, but it's not clear that
other uses won't be. reducing the strength of the ordering properties
required from a_store would require a thorough analysis of how it's
to fix the problem, I'm removing the powerpc-specific a_store
definition; now, the top-level atomic.h will implement a_store using
a_barrier on both sides of the store.
it's not clear to me yet whether there might be issues with the other
atomics. it's possible that a_post_llsc needs to be replaced with a
full barrier to guarantee the formal semanics we want, but either way
I think the difference is unlikely to impact the way we use them.
these were overlooked in the declarations overhaul work because they
are not properly declared, and the current framework even allows their
declared types to vary by arch. at some point this should be cleaned
up, but I'm not sure what the right way would be.
this cleans up what had become widespread direct inline use of "GNU C"
style attributes directly in the source, and lowers the barrier to
increased use of hidden visibility, which will be useful to recovering
some of the efficiency lost when the protected visibility hack was
dropped in commit dc2f368e565c37728b0d620380b849c3a1ddd78f, especially
on archs where the PLT ABI is costly.
if __cp_cancel was reached via __syscall_cp, r12 will necessarily
still contain a GOT pointer (for libc.so or for the static-linked main
program) valid for entering __cancel. however, in the case of async
cancellation, r12 may contain any scratch value; it's not necessarily
even a valid GOT pointer for the code that was interrupted.
unlike in commit 0ec49dab6794166d67fae4764ce7fdea42ea6103 where the
corresponding issue was fixed for powerpc64, there is fundamentally no
way for fdpic code to recompute its GOT pointer. so a new mechanism is
introduced for cancel_handler to write a GOT register value into the
interrupted context on archs where it is needed.
maintainer's note: while musl does not use the linux kernel headers,
it does provide these three sys/* headers which do nothing but include
the corresponding linux/* headers, since the sys/* versions are the
ones documented for application use (and they arguably provide
interfaces that are not linux-specific but common to other unices).
these headers should probably not be provided by libc (rather by a
separate package), but as long as they are, use the bits header
framework as an aid to out-of-tree ports of musl for non-linux systems
that want to implement them in some other way.
sys/ptrace.h is target specific, use bits/ptrace.h to add target
specific macro definitions.
these macros are kept in the generic sys/ptrace.h even though some
targets don't support them:
so no macro definition got removed in this patch on any target. only
s390x has a numerically conflicting macro definition (PTRACE_SINGLEBLOCK).
the PT_ aliases follow glibc headers, otherwise the definitions come
from linux uapi headers except ones that are skipped in glibc and
there is no real kernel support (s390x PTRACE_*_AREA) or need special
type definitions (mips PTRACE_*_WATCH_*) or only relevant for linux
2.4 compatibility (PTRACE_OLDSETOPTIONS).
commit 587f5a53bc3a68d80b239ba515d583df690a96df moved the definition
of SO_PEERSEC to bits/socket.h for archs where the SO_* macros differ
from their standard values, but failed to add copies of the generic
definition for powerpc and powerpc64.
adapted from patch by Matthias Schiffer.
unlike the x86 variant, the m68k ld80 format allows (biased) exponent
zero with mantissa msb set, thereby extending the normal range.
the mode member of struct ipc_perm is specified by POSIX to have type
mode_t, which is uniformly defined as unsigned int. however, Linux
defines it with type __kernel_mode_t, and defines __kernel_mode_t as
unsigned short on some archs. since there is a subsequent padding
field, treating it as a 32-bit unsigned int works on little endian
archs, but the order is backwards on big endian archs with the
since multiple archs are affected, remedy the situation with fixup
code in the affected functions (shmctl, semctl, and msgctl) rather
than repeating the same shims in syscall_arch.h for every affected

three ABIs are supported: the default with 68881 80-bit fpu format and
results returned in floating point registers, softfloat-only with the
same format, and coldfire fpu with IEEE single/double only. only the
first is tested at all, and only under qemu which has fpu emulation
basic functionality smoke tests have been performed for the most
common arch-specific breakage via libc-test and qemu user-level
emulation. some sysvipc failures remain, but are shared with other big
endian archs and will be fixed separately.
In TLS variant I the TLS is above TP (or above a fixed offset from TP)
but on some targets there is a reserved gap above TP before TLS starts.
This matters for the local-exec tls access model when the offsets of
TLS variables from the TP are hard coded by the linker into the
executable, so the libc must compute these offsets the same way as the
linker. The tls offset of the main module has to be
If there is no TLS in the main module then the gap can be ignored
since musl does not use it and the tls access models of shared
libraries are not affected.
The previous setup only worked if (tls_align & -GAP_ABOVE_TP) == 0
(i.e. TLS did not require large alignment) because the gap was
treated as a fixed offset from TP. Now the TP points at the end
of the pthread struct (which is aligned) and there is a gap above
it (which may also need alignment).
The fix required changing TP_ADJ and __pthread_self on affected
targets (aarch64, arm and sh) and in the tlsdesc asm the offset to
access the dtv changed too.
in thumb mode, r7 is the ABI frame pointer register, and unless frame
pointer is disabled, gcc insists on treating it as a fixed register,
refusing to spill it to satisfy constraints. unfortunately, r7 is also
used in the syscall ABI for passing the syscall number.
up til now we just treated this as a requirement to disable frame
pointer when generating code as thumb, but it turns out gcc forcibly
enables frame pointer, and the fixed register constraint that goes
with it, for functions which contain VLAs. this produces an
unacceptable arch-specific constraint that (non-arm-specific) source
files making syscalls cannot use VLAs.
as a workaround, avoid r7 register constraints when producing thumb
code and instead save/restore r7 in a temp register as part of the asm
block. at some point we may want/need to support armv6-m/thumb1, so
the asm has been tweaked to be thumb1-compatible while also
near-optimal for thumb2: it allows the temp and/or syscall number to
be in high registers (necessary since r0-r5 may all be used for
syscalll args) and in thumb2 mode allows the syscall number to be an
ARMv6 cores with support for Thumb2 can take advantage of the "ldrex"
and "strex" based implementations of a_ll and a_sc.
__ARM_ARCH_6ZK__ is a gcc specific historical typo which may not be
defined by other compilers.
To avoid unexpected results when building for ARMv6KZ with clang, the
correct form of the macro (ie 6KZ) needs to be tested. The incorrect
form of the macro (ie 6ZK) still needs to be tested for compatibility
with pre-2015 versions of gcc.
Provide an ARM specific a_ctz_32 helper function for architecture
versions for which it can be implemented efficiently via the "rbit"
instruction (ie all Thumb-2 capable versions of ARM v6 and above).
Update atomic.h to provide a_ctz_l in all cases (atomic_arch.h should
now only provide a_ctz_32 and/or a_ctz_64).
The generic version of a_ctz_32 now takes advantage of a_clz_32 if
available and the generic a_ctz_64 now makes use of a_ctz_32.
the output delay features (NL*, CR*, TAB*, BS*, and VT*) are
XSI-shaded. VT* is in the V* namespace reservation but the rest need
to be suppressed in base POSIX namespace.
unfortunately this change introduces feature test macro checks into
another bits header. at some point these checks should be simplified
by having features.h handle the "FTM X implies Y" relationships.
align with commit c9c2cd3e6955cb1d57b8be01d4b072bf44058762.
PAGESIZE is actually the version defined in POSIX base, with PAGE_SIZE
being in the XSI option. use PAGESIZE as the underlying definition to
facilitate making exposure of PAGE_SIZE conditional.

note that only targets that use asm-generic/mman.h have this new
