Subject[PATCH v3 00/10] posix_clocks: Prepare syscalls for 64 bit time_t conversion
Date
The series is a preparation series for individual architectures
to use 64 bit time_t syscalls in compat and 32 bit emulation modes.

This is a follow up to the series Arnd Bergmann posted:
https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2015-05/msg00070.html [1]

Big picture is as per the lwn article:
https://lwn.net/Articles/643234/ [2]

The series is directed at converting posix clock syscalls:
clock_gettime, clock_settime, clock_getres and clock_nanosleep
to use a new data structure __kernel_timespec at syscall boundaries.
__kernel_timespec maintains 64 bit time_t across all execution modes.

vdso will be handled as part of each architecture when they enable
support for 64 bit time_t.

The compat syscalls are repurposed to provide backward compatibility
by using them as native syscalls as well for 32 bit architectures.
They will continue to use timespec at syscall boundaries.

CONFIG_64_BIT_TIME controls whether the syscalls use __kernel_timespec
or timespec at syscall boundaries.

The series does the following:
1. Enable compat syscalls on 32 bit architectures.
2. Add a new __kernel_timespec type to be used as the data structure
for all the new syscalls.
3. Add new config CONFIG_64BIT_TIME(intead of the CONFIG_COMPAT_TIME in
[1] and [2] to switch to new definition of __kernel_timespec. It is
the same as struct timespec otherwise.
4. Add new CONFIG_32BIT_TIME to conditionally compile compat syscalls.

* Changes since v2:
* Dropped the ARCH_HAS_64BIT_TIME config.
* Fixed zeroing out of higher order bits of tv_nsec for real.
* Addressed minor review comments from v1.
* Changes since v1:
* Introduce CONFIG_32BIT_TIME
* Fixed zeroing out of higher order bits of tv_nsec
* Included Arnd's changes to fix up use of compat headers

I decided against using LEGACY_TIME_SYSCALLS to conditionally compile
legacy time syscalls such as sys_nanosleep because this will need to
enclose compat_sys_nanosleep as well. So, defining it as

config LEGACY_TIME_SYSCALLS
def_bool 64BIT || !64BIT_TIME

will not include compat_sys_nanosleep. We will instead need a new config to
exclusively mark legacy syscalls.

Deepa Dinamani (10):
compat: Make compat helpers independent of CONFIG_COMPAT
include: Move compat_timespec/ timeval to compat_time.h
compat: enable compat_get/put_timespec64 always
arch: introduce CONFIG_64BIT_TIME
arch: Introduce CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME
posix-clocks: Make compat syscalls depend on CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME
include: Add new y2038 safe __kernel_timespec
fix get_timespec64() for y2038 safe compat interfaces
change time types to new y2038 safe __kernel_* types
nanosleep: change time types to safe __kernel_* types
