2020-07-31init: add an init_mknod helperChristoph Hellwig1-2/+1
Add a simple helper to mknod with a kernel space file name and switch the early init code over to it. Remove the now unused ksys_mknod. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>

2018-04-02fs: add do_mknodat() helper and ksys_mknod() wrapper; remove in-kernel calls ↵Dominik Brodowski1-1/+1
to syscall Using the fs-internal do_mknodat() helper allows us to get rid of fs-internal calls to the sys_mknodat() syscall. Introducing the ksys_mknod() wrapper allows us to avoid the in-kernel calls to sys_mknod() syscall. The ksys_ prefix denotes that this function is meant as a drop-in replacement for the syscall. In particular, it uses the same calling convention as sys_mknod(). This patch is part of a series which removes in-kernel calls to syscalls. On this basis, the syscall entry path can be streamlined.

2010-10-26init: mark __user address space on string literalsNamhyung Kim1-3/+3
When calling syscall service routines in kernel, some of arguments should be user pointers but were missing __user markup on string literals. Add it. Removes some sparse warnings.

2007-02-11[PATCH] disable init/initramfs.cJean-Paul Saman1-0/+52
The file init/initramfs.c is always compiled and linked in the kernel vmlinux even when BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INITRD are disabled and the system isn't using any form of an initramfs or initrd. In this situation the code is only used to unpack a (static) default initial rootfilesystem. The current init/initramfs.c code. usr/initramfs_data.o compiles to a size of ~15 kbytes. Disabling BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INTRD shrinks the kernel code size with ~60 Kbytes. This patch avoids compiling in the code and data for initramfs support if CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not defined. Instead of the initramfs code and data it uses a small routine in init/noinitramfs.c to setup an initial static default environment for mounting a rootfilesystem later on in the kernel initialisation process. The new code is: 164 bytes of size. The patch is separated in two parts: 1) doesn't compile initramfs code when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set 2) changing all plaforms vmlinux.lds.S files to not reserve an area of PAGE_SIZE when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set.
