2017-11-02License cleanup: add SPDX license identifier to uapi header files with a licenseGreg Kroah-Hartman1-0/+1
Many user space API headers have licensing information, which is either incomplete, badly formatted or just a shorthand for referring to the license under which the file is supposed to be. This makes it hard for compliance tools to determine the correct license. Update these files with an SPDX license identifier. The identifier was chosen based on the license information in the file. GPL/LGPL licensed headers get the matching GPL/LGPL SPDX license identifier with the added 'WITH Linux-syscall-note' exception, which is the officially assigned exception identifier for the kernel syscall exception: NOTE! This copyright does *not* cover user programs that use kernel services by normal system calls - this is merely considered normal use of the kernel, and does *not* fall under the heading of "derived work". This exception makes it possible to include GPL headers into non GPL code, without confusing license compliance tools. Headers which have either explicit dual licensing or are just licensed under a non GPL license are updated with the corresponding SPDX identifier and the GPLv2 with syscall exception identifier. The format is: ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR SPDX-ID-OF-OTHER-LICENSE) SPDX license identifiers are a legally binding shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text. The update does not remove existing license information as this has to be done on a case by case basis and the copyright holders might have to be consulted. This will happen in a separate step. This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and Philippe Ombredanne. See the previous patch in this series for the methodology of how this patch was researched.

2016-09-25ALSA: control: cage TLV_DB_RANGE_HEAD in kernel land because it was obsoletedTakashi Sakamoto1-3/+0
In commit bf1d1c9b6179 ("ALSA: tlv: add DECLARE_TLV_DB_RANGE()"), the new macro was added so that "dB range information can be specified without having to count the items manually for TLV_DB_RANGE_HEAD()". In short, TLV_DB_RANGE_HEAD macro was obsoleted. In commit 46e860f76804 ("ALSA: rename TLV-related macros so that they're friendly to user applications"), TLV-related macros are exposed for applications in user land to get content of data structured by Type/Length/Value shape. The commit managed to expose TLV-related macros as many as possible, while obsoleted TLV_DB_RANGE_HEAD() was included to the list of exposed macros. This situation brings some confusions to application developers because they might think all exposed macros have their own purpose and useful for applications. For the reason, this commit moves TLV_DB_RANGE_HEAD macro from UAPI header to a header for kernel land, again. The above commit is done within the same development period for kernel 4.9, thus not published yet. This commit might certainly brings no confusions to user land.

2016-09-15ALSA: rename TLV-related macros so that they're friendly to user applicationsTakashi Sakamoto1-34/+46
In a previous commit, some macros newly appeared to UAPI header for TLV packet. These macros have short names and they easily bring name conflist to applications. The conflict can be avoided to rename them with a proper prefix. For this purpose, this commit renames these macros with prefix 'SNDRV_CTL_TLVD_'.

2016-09-15ALSA: control: move layout of TLV payload to UAPI headerTakashi Sakamoto1-0/+60
In ALSA control interface, each element set can have threshold level information. This information is transferred between drivers/applications, in a shape of tlv packet. The layout of this packet is defined in 'uapi/sound/asound.h' (struct snd_ctl_tlv): struct snd_ctl_tlv { unsigned int numid; unsigned int length; unsigned int tlv[0]; }; Data in the payload (struct snd_ctl_tlv.tlv) is expected to be filled according to our own protocol. This protocol is described in 'include/sound/tlv.h'. A layout of the payload is expected as: struct snd_ctl_tlv.tlv[0]: one of SNDRV_CTL_TLVT_XXX struct snd_ctl_tlv.tlv[1]: Length of data struct snd_ctl_tlv.tlv[2...]: data Unfortunately, the macro is not exported to user land yet, thus applications cannot get to know the protocol. Additionally, ALSA control core has a feature called as 'user-defined' element set. This allows applications to add/remove arbitrary element sets with elements to control devices. Elements in the element set can be operated by the same way as the ones added by in-kernel implementation. For threshold level information of 'user-defined' element set, applications need to register the information to an element set. However, as described above, layout of the payload is closed in kernel land. This is quite inconvenient, too. This commit moves the protocol to UAPI header for TLV.
