    parser: remove unnecessary strlen()

    andre-rosa authored torvalds committed
    No functional change.  Cache strlen() result to avoid recalculating it up
    to 3 times on the worst case.
    Reduces code size a little by 32 bytes:
       text    data     bss     dec     hex filename

    vfs: Use const for kernel parser table

    Steven Whitehouse authored torvalds committed
    This is a much better version of a previous patch to make the parser
    tables constant. Rather than changing the typedef, we put the "const" in
    all the various places where its required, allowing the __initconst
    exception for nfsroot which was the cause of the previous trouble.
    This was posted for review some time ago and I believe its been in -mm
    since then.

    …ing more robust
    match_strcpy() is a somewhat creepy function: the caller needs to make sure
    that the destination buffer is big enough, and when he screws up or
    forgets, match_strcpy() happily overruns the buffer.
    There's exactly one customer: v9fs_parse_options().  I believe it currently
    can't overflow its buffer, but that's not exactly obvious.
    The source string is a substing of the mount options.  The kernel silently
    truncates those to PAGE_SIZE bytes, including the terminating zero.  See
    compat_sys_mount() and do_mount().
    The destination buffer is obtained from __getname(), which allocates from
    name_cachep, which is initialized by vfs_caches_init() for size PATH_MAX.
    We're safe as long as PATH_MAX <= PAGE_SIZE.  PATH_MAX is 4096.  As far as
    I know, the smallest PAGE_SIZE is also 4096.
    Here's a patch that makes the code a bit more obviously correct.  It
    doesn't depend on PATH_MAX <= PAGE_SIZE.

    [AFS]: Make the match_*() functions take const options.

    Make the match_*() functions take a const pointer to the options table
    and make strings pointers in the options table const too.

    Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
    even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
    archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
    3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
    git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
    infrastructure for it.
    Let it rip!
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
