2018-01-09Input: extend usable life of event timestamps to 2106 on 32 bit systemsDeepa Dinamani1-4/+4
The input events use struct timeval to store event time, unfortunately this structure is not y2038 safe and is being replaced in kernel with y2038 safe structures. Because of ABI concerns we can not change the size or the layout of structure input_event, so we opt to re-interpreting the 'seconds' part of timestamp as an unsigned value, effectively doubling the range of values, to year 2106. Newer glibc that has support for 32 bit applications to use 64 bit time_t supplies __USE_TIME_BITS64 define [1], that we can use to present the userspace with updated input_event layout. The updated layout will cause the compile time breakage, alerting applications and distributions maintainers to the issue. Existing 32 binaries will continue working without any changes until 2038. Ultimately userspace applications should switch to using monotonic or boot time clocks, as realtime clock is not very well suited for input event timestamps as it can go backwards (see a80b83b7b8 "Input: evdev - add CLOCK_BOOTTIME support" by by John Stultz). With monotonic clock the practical range of reported times will always fit into the pair of 32 bit values, as we do not expect any system to stay up for a hundred years without a single reboot.

2016-12-24Replace <asm/uaccess.h> with <linux/uaccess.h> globallyLinus Torvalds1-1/+1

2016-03-25drivers/input: eliminate INPUT_COMPAT_TEST macroAndrew Morton1-3/+3
INPUT_COMPAT_TEST became much simpler after commit f4056b52845283 ("input: redefine INPUT_COMPAT_TEST as in_compat_syscall()") so we can cleanly eliminate it altogether.

2008-10-27Input: refactor evdev 32bit compat to be shareable with uinputPhilip Langdale1-0/+135
Currently, evdev has working 32bit compatibility and uinput does not. uinput needs the input_event code that evdev uses, so let's refactor it so it can be shared.
