# General architecture dependent options

config OPROFILE
tristate "OProfile system profiling"
depends on PROFILING
depends on HAVE_OPROFILE
select RING_BUFFER
select RING_BUFFER_ALLOW_SWAP
help
OProfile is a profiling system capable of profiling the
whole system, include the kernel, kernel modules, libraries,
and applications.
If unsure, say N.
config OPROFILE_EVENT_MULTIPLEX
bool "OProfile multiplexing support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
default n
depends on OPROFILE && X86
help
The number of hardware counters is limited. The multiplexing
feature enables OProfile to gather more events than counters
are provided by the hardware. This is realized by switching
between events at an user specified time interval.
If unsure, say N.
config HAVE_OPROFILE
bool
config OPROFILE_NMI_TIMER
def_bool y
depends on PERF_EVENTS && HAVE_PERF_EVENTS_NMI
config KPROBES
bool "Kprobes"
depends on MODULES
depends on HAVE_KPROBES
select KALLSYMS
help
Kprobes allows you to trap at almost any kernel address and
execute a callback function. register_kprobe() establishes
a probepoint and specifies the callback. Kprobes is useful
for kernel debugging, non-intrusive instrumentation and testing.
If in doubt, say "N".
config JUMP_LABEL
bool "Optimize very unlikely/likely branches"
depends on HAVE_ARCH_JUMP_LABEL
help
This option enables a transparent branch optimization that
makes certain almost-always-true or almost-always-false branch
conditions even cheaper to execute within the kernel.
Certain performance-sensitive kernel code, such as trace points,
scheduler functionality, networking code and KVM have such
branches and include support for this optimization technique.
If it is detected that the compiler has support for "asm goto",
the kernel will compile such branches with just a nop
instruction. When the condition flag is toggled to true, the
nop will be converted to a jump instruction to execute the
conditional block of instructions.
This technique lowers overhead and stress on the branch prediction
of the processor and generally makes the kernel faster. The update
of the condition is slower, but those are always very rare.
( On 32-bit x86, the necessary options added to the compiler
flags may increase the size of the kernel slightly. )
config OPTPROBES
def_bool y
depends on KPROBES && HAVE_OPTPROBES
depends on !PREEMPT
config UPROBES
bool "Transparent user-space probes (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on UPROBE_EVENT && PERF_EVENTS
default n
help
Uprobes is the user-space counterpart to kprobes: they
enable instrumentation applications (such as 'perf probe')
to establish unintrusive probes in user-space binaries and
libraries, by executing handler functions when the probes
are hit by user-space applications.
( These probes come in the form of single-byte breakpoints,
managed by the kernel and kept transparent to the probed
application. )
If in doubt, say "N".
config HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS
bool
help
Some architectures are unable to perform unaligned accesses
without the use of get_unaligned/put_unaligned. Others are
unable to perform such accesses efficiently (e.g. trap on
unaligned access and require fixing it up in the exception
handler.)
This symbol should be selected by an architecture if it can
perform unaligned accesses efficiently to allow different
code paths to be selected for these cases. Some network
drivers, for example, could opt to not fix up alignment
problems with received packets if doing so would not help
much.
See Documentation/unaligned-memory-access.txt for more
information on the topic of unaligned memory accesses.
config HAVE_SYSCALL_WRAPPERS
bool
config KRETPROBES
def_bool y
depends on KPROBES && HAVE_KRETPROBES
config USER_RETURN_NOTIFIER
bool
depends on HAVE_USER_RETURN_NOTIFIER
help
Provide a kernel-internal notification when a cpu is about to
switch to user mode.
config HAVE_IOREMAP_PROT
bool
config HAVE_KPROBES

config HAVE_KRETPROBES

config HAVE_OPTPROBES

config HAVE_NMI_WATCHDOG

#
# An arch should select this if it provides all these things:

# task_pt_regs() in asm/processor.h or asm/ptrace.h
# arch_has_single_step() if there is hardware single-step support
# arch_has_block_step() if there is hardware block-step support

bool
config HAVE_REGS_AND_STACK_ACCESS_API
bool
help
This symbol should be selected by an architecure if it supports
the API needed to access registers and stack entries from pt_regs,
declared in asm/ptrace.h
For example the kprobes-based event tracer needs this API.
config HAVE_CLK
bool
help
The <linux/clk.h> calls support software clock gating and
thus are a key power management tool on many systems.
config HAVE_DMA_API_DEBUG
bool
config HAVE_HW_BREAKPOINT
bool
depends on PERF_EVENTS
config HAVE_MIXED_BREAKPOINTS_REGS
bool
depends on HAVE_HW_BREAKPOINT
help
Depending on the arch implementation of hardware breakpoints,
some of them have separate registers for data and instruction
breakpoints addresses, others have mixed registers to store
them but define the access type in a control register.
Select this option if your arch implements breakpoints under the
latter fashion.
config HAVE_USER_RETURN_NOTIFIER
bool
config HAVE_PERF_EVENTS_NMI
bool
help
System hardware can generate an NMI using the perf event
subsystem. Also has support for calculating CPU cycle events
to determine how many clock cycles in a given period.
config HAVE_ARCH_JUMP_LABEL
bool
config HAVE_ARCH_MUTEX_CPU_RELAX
bool
config HAVE_RCU_TABLE_FREE
bool
config ARCH_HAVE_NMI_SAFE_CMPXCHG
bool
config HAVE_ALIGNED_STRUCT_PAGE
bool
help
This makes sure that struct pages are double word aligned and that
e.g. the SLUB allocator can perform double word atomic operations
on a struct page for better performance. However selecting this
might increase the size of a struct page by a word.
config HAVE_CMPXCHG_LOCAL
bool
config HAVE_CMPXCHG_DOUBLE
bool
config ARCH_WANT_OLD_COMPAT_IPC
bool
config HAVE_ARCH_SECCOMP_FILTER
bool
help
An arch should select this symbol if it provides all of these things:
- syscall_get_arch()
- syscall_get_arguments()
- syscall_rollback()
- syscall_set_return_value()
- SIGSYS siginfo_t support
- secure_computing is called from a ptrace_event()-safe context
- secure_computing return value is checked and a return value of -1
results in the system call being skipped immediately.
config SECCOMP_FILTER
def_bool y
depends on HAVE_ARCH_SECCOMP_FILTER && SECCOMP && NET
help
Enable tasks to build secure computing environments defined
in terms of Berkeley Packet Filter programs which implement
task-defined system call filtering polices.
See Documentation/prctl/seccomp_filter.txt for details.
