Subject[PATCH 00/14] arm64: kexec: add kexec_file_load support
Date
This is the initial attempt of implementing kexec_file_load() support
on arm64.[1]
Most of the code is based on kexec-tools (along with some kernel code
from x86 and from powerpc, which also came from kexec-tools).


This patch series enables us to
* load the kernel, either Image or vmlinux, with kexec_file_load
system call, and
* optionally verify its signature at load time for trusted boot.

To load the kernel via kexec_file_load system call, a small change
needs to be applied on kexec-tools. See [2]. This enables '-s' option.

As we discussed a long time ago, users may not be allowed to specify
device-tree file of the 2nd kernel explicitly with kexec-tools, therefore
re-using the blob of the first kernel.

Regarding a method of placing the signature into the kernel binary,
* for 'Image', we conform with x86 (or rather Microsoft?) style of
signing since the binary can also be seen as in PE format
(assuming that CONFIG_EFI is enabled),
* for 'vmlinux', we follow powerpc approach[3]: The signature will
be appended just after the binary itself as module signing does.
This implies that we need to enable CONFIG_MODULE_SIG, too.

Powerpc is also going to support extended-file-attribute-based
verification[3], but arm64 doesn't for now partly because we don't
have TPM-based IMA at this moment.

Accordingly, we can use the existing commands, sbsign and sig-file
respectively, to sign the kernel. Please note that it is totally up to
the system what key/certificate is used for signing.

Some concerns(or future works):
* Even if the kernel is configured with CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE, the 2nd
kernel won't be placed at a randomized address. We will have to
add some boot code similar to efi-stub to implement the feature.
* While big-endian kernel can support kernel signing, I'm not sure that
Image can be recognized as in PE format because x86 standard only
defines little-endian-based format.
So I tested big-endian kernel signing only with vmlinux.
* IMA(and file extended attribute)-based kexec


Patch #1 to #7 are all preparatory patches on generic side.
(Patch #1 is not part of mine, but a prerequisite from [4].)
Patch #8 and #9 are purgatory code.
Patch #10 to #12 are common for enabling kexec_file_load.
Patch #13 is for 'Image' support.
Patch #14 is for 'vmlinux' support.
