r355672 causes the following issue with basically all configs:

ld: init/do_mounts.o: in function `prepare_namespace':
do_mounts.c:(.init.text+0x5ca): undefined reference to `bcmp'
ld: do_mounts.c:(.init.text+0x5e6): undefined reference to `bcmp'

ld: arch/x86/kernel/setup.o:setup.c:(.init.text+0x244): more undefined references to `bcmp' follow

According to the commit message, this is the diff we need to fix it (I don't think cc-option is necessary?):

Probably should be behind a cc-option macro, though -Qunused-arguments will hide that.

  // memcmp(x, y, Len) == 0 -> bcmp(x, y, Len) == 0
  // `bcmp` can be more efficient than memcmp because it only has to know that
  // there is a difference, not where is is.

That's a nice little optimization...

  // Posix removed support from bcmp() in 2001, but the glibc and several
  // implementations of the libc still have it.

whoops!

Probably could provide glibc's implementation to the kernel. We had an internal report this week from CrOS about __lshrdi3 that I need to dig into more.

Yeah I'd be fine with that.

That'd be nice if it is a good optimization. I'm just more worried about how long that would take to make it through the pipeline since it will need to be supplied for all architectures we are using. As it stands, CI is going to go completely red when we get an update (we can work around it in driver.sh with the KCFLAGS variable but still, doesn't help everyone).

Hmmm looking into it more, glibc just aliases bcmp to memcmp nowadays... (and has since 1995?): https://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_mono/libc.html#String_002fArray-Comparison

I personally think this should be done (plus adjusting the comment and tests I guess), this would save us a lot of headaches:

Hmm, it seems like -fno-builtin-bcmp isn't good enough for LTO and CFI in kernel/common though.

With them enabled: https://gist.github.com/2970612cc207f00f1864fc2490fdfe21

With them disabled: https://gist.github.com/4dd746c92283bea124db81f068fee9a3

I can very clearly see that that flag was passed to those translation units (.printk.o.cmd and .core.o.cmd). I do not see this issue when using my LLVM patch above, suggesting that -fno-builtin-bcmp isn't getting respected somewhere in the backend.

I can open another issue here or on LLVM's bug tracker if that's preferred.

argh (cc @samitolvanen @jyknight ). I think then we'll have to provide implementations of bcmp (or at least alias it to memcmp) in the kernel then. I'm testing out such a patch now.

EDIT: just saw now that @nathanchance came up with a similar patch, and hit similar issues.

I messed around with it this morning before work. It's easy for the generic memcmp implementation (in lib/string.c, see my reply to Arnd) but I had no idea how to deal with the assembly implementations like arm64 has.

Sounds like -fno-builtin-bcmp is not stored in the IR then. Have you checked if it's possible to pass it to the linker as -plugin-opt like we're doing with code model?

Not yet. I posted 2 simple patches that just define bcmp, which I think is the simplest solution:

Then we can worry about providing optimized implementations.

lib/string.c: implement a basic bcmp
A recent optimization in Clang (r355672) lowers comparisons of the
return value of memcmp against zero to comparisons of the return value
of bcmp against zero.  This helps some platforms that implement bcmp
more efficiently than memcmp. glibc simply aliases bcmp to memcmp, but
an optimized implementation is in the works.

This results in linkage failures for all targets with Clang due to the
undefined symbol.  For now, just implement bcmp as a tailcail to memcmp
to unbreak the build.  This routine can be further optimized in the
future.

Other ideas discussed:
* A weak alias was discussed, but breaks for architectures that define
their own implementations of memcmp since aliases to declarations are
not permitted (only definitions).  Arch-specific memcmp implementations
typically declare memcmp in C headers, but implement them in assembly.
* -ffreestanding also is used sporadically throughout the kernel.
* -fno-builtin-bcmp doesn't work when doing LTO.

Makefile: Add '-fno-builtin-bcmp' to CLANG_FLAGS
After LLVM revision r355672 [1], all known working kernel
configurations fail to link [2]:

Commit 6edfba1 ("[PATCH] x86_64: Don't define string functions to
builtin") removed '-ffreestanding' globally and the kernel doesn't
provide a bcmp definition so the linker cannot find a reference to it.

Fix this by explicitly telling LLVM through Clang not to emit bcmp
references. This flag does not need to be behind 'cc-option' because all
working versions of Clang support this flag.

lib/string.c: implement a basic bcmp
[ Upstream commit 5f074f3e192f10c9fade898b9b3b8812e3d83342 ]

A recent optimization in Clang (r355672) lowers comparisons of the
return value of memcmp against zero to comparisons of the return value
of bcmp against zero.  This helps some platforms that implement bcmp
more efficiently than memcmp.  glibc simply aliases bcmp to memcmp, but
an optimized implementation is in the works.

This results in linkage failures for all targets with Clang due to the
undefined symbol.  For now, just implement bcmp as a tailcail to memcmp
to unbreak the build.  This routine can be further optimized in the
future.

Other ideas discussed:

 * A weak alias was discussed, but breaks for architectures that define
   their own implementations of memcmp since aliases to declarations are
   not permitted (only definitions). Arch-specific memcmp
   implementations typically declare memcmp in C headers, but implement
   them in assembly.

 * -ffreestanding also is used sporadically throughout the kernel.

 * -fno-builtin-bcmp doesn't work when doing LTO.

lib/string.c: implement a basic bcmp
[ Upstream commit 5f074f3e192f10c9fade898b9b3b8812e3d83342 ]

A recent optimization in Clang (r355672) lowers comparisons of the
return value of memcmp against zero to comparisons of the return value
of bcmp against zero.  This helps some platforms that implement bcmp
more efficiently than memcmp.  glibc simply aliases bcmp to memcmp, but
an optimized implementation is in the works.

This results in linkage failures for all targets with Clang due to the
undefined symbol.  For now, just implement bcmp as a tailcail to memcmp
to unbreak the build.  This routine can be further optimized in the
future.

Other ideas discussed:

 * A weak alias was discussed, but breaks for architectures that define
   their own implementations of memcmp since aliases to declarations are
   not permitted (only definitions). Arch-specific memcmp
   implementations typically declare memcmp in C headers, but implement
   them in assembly.

 * -ffreestanding also is used sporadically throughout the kernel.

 * -fno-builtin-bcmp doesn't work when doing LTO.

lib/string.c: implement a basic bcmp
[ Upstream commit 5f074f3e192f10c9fade898b9b3b8812e3d83342 ]

A recent optimization in Clang (r355672) lowers comparisons of the
return value of memcmp against zero to comparisons of the return value
of bcmp against zero.  This helps some platforms that implement bcmp
more efficiently than memcmp.  glibc simply aliases bcmp to memcmp, but
an optimized implementation is in the works.

This results in linkage failures for all targets with Clang due to the
undefined symbol.  For now, just implement bcmp as a tailcail to memcmp
to unbreak the build.  This routine can be further optimized in the
future.

Other ideas discussed:

 * A weak alias was discussed, but breaks for architectures that define
   their own implementations of memcmp since aliases to declarations are
   not permitted (only definitions). Arch-specific memcmp
   implementations typically declare memcmp in C headers, but implement
   them in assembly.

 * -ffreestanding also is used sporadically throughout the kernel.

 * -fno-builtin-bcmp doesn't work when doing LTO.

lib/string.c: implement a basic bcmp
[ Upstream commit 5f074f3e192f10c9fade898b9b3b8812e3d83342 ]

A recent optimization in Clang (r355672) lowers comparisons of the
return value of memcmp against zero to comparisons of the return value
of bcmp against zero.  This helps some platforms that implement bcmp
more efficiently than memcmp.  glibc simply aliases bcmp to memcmp, but
an optimized implementation is in the works.

This results in linkage failures for all targets with Clang due to the
undefined symbol.  For now, just implement bcmp as a tailcail to memcmp
to unbreak the build.  This routine can be further optimized in the
future.

Other ideas discussed:

 * A weak alias was discussed, but breaks for architectures that define
   their own implementations of memcmp since aliases to declarations are
   not permitted (only definitions). Arch-specific memcmp
   implementations typically declare memcmp in C headers, but implement
   them in assembly.

 * -ffreestanding also is used sporadically throughout the kernel.

 * -fno-builtin-bcmp doesn't work when doing LTO.
