[PATCH v7 0/5] Parse CONFIG_CMDLINE in compressed kernel

From: Evgeniy Baskov
Date: Tue Oct 04 2022 - 08:52:30 EST

options lookup in compressed kernel, including earlyprintk option,
so it was impossible to get earlyprintk messages from that stage
of boot process via command line provided at compile time.
Being able to enable earlyprintk via compile-time option might
be desirable for booting on systems with broken UEFI command line
arguments via EFISTUB.

Changes in v2:

* Compute resulting cmdline string once if needed and then reuse it.
Store concatenation result in a static buffer.
* Add strlcat() to compressed kernel to simplify the code.

Changes in v3:

v2 had a bug: cmd_line_ptr was set to a pointer to a buffer inside
a kernel before kernel relocation, that makes this pointer invalid.

* Replace the pointer by a boolean variable to avoid storing a pointer,
since it becomes invalid during kernel relocation.

Changes in v4:

* Use better wording for commit messages.
* Add buffer overflow check to strlcat().
* Factor out common logic of cmdline resolving into helper function.

Changes in v5:

* Use strscpy() instead of strlcpy().

Changes in v6:

* Remove superfluous new line.
* Rename resolve_cmdline() to cmdline_prepare().
* Move shared/setup-cmdline.h to shared/cmdline.h

Changes in v7:

* Replace #ifdef with IS_ENABLED() in cmdline_prepare()
for consistency.

Evgeniy Baskov (5):
x86/boot: Add strlcat() and strscpy() to compressed kernel
x86: Add cmdline_prepare() helper
x86/setup: Use cmdline_prepare() in setup.c
x86/boot: Use cmdline_prapare() in compressed kernel
x86/boot: Remove no longer needed includes
