Subject[PATCH v2 8/8] selftests/vm: hmm-tests: remove the libhugetlbfs dependency
Date
HMM selftests are incredibly useful, but they are only effective if
people actually build and run them. All the other tests in selftests/vm
can be built with very standard, always-available libraries: libpthread,
librt. The hmm-tests.c program, on the other hand, requires something
that is (much) less readily available: libhugetlbfs. And so the build
will typically fail for many developers.

A simple attempt to install libhugetlbfs will also run into
complications on some common distros these days: Fedora and Arch Linux
(yes, Arch AUR has it, but that's fragile, as always with AUR). The
library is not maintained actively enough at the moment, for distros to
deal with it. I had to build it from source, for Fedora, and that didn't
go too smoothly either.

It turns out that, out of 21 tests in hmm-tests.c, only 2 actually
require functionality from libhugetlbfs. Therefore, if libhugetlbfs is
missing, simply ifdef those two tests out and allow the developer to at
least have the other 19 tests, if they don't want to pause to work
through the above issues. Also issue a warning, so that it's clear that
there is an imperfection in the build.

In order to do that, a tiny shell script (check_config.sh) runs a quick
compile (not link, that's too prone to false failures with library
paths), and basically, if the compiler doesn't find hugetlbfs.h in its
standard locations, then the script concludes that libhugetlbfs is not
available. The output is in two files, one for inclusion in hmm-test.c
(local_config.h), and one for inclusion in the Makefile
(local_config.mk).
