      bpf: change eBPF helper doc parsing script to allow for smaller indent · eeacb716
      Quentin Monnet authored
      Documentation for eBPF helpers can be parsed from bpf.h and eventually
      turned into a man page. Commit 6f96674d ("bpf: relax constraints on
      formatting for eBPF helper documentation") changed the script used to
      parse it, in order to allow for different indent style and to ease the
      work for writing documentation for future helpers.
      The script currently considers that the first tab can be replaced by 6
      to 8 spaces. But the documentation for bpf_fib_lookup() uses a mix of
      tabs (for the "Description" part) and of spaces ("Return" part), and
      only has 5 space long indent for the latter.
      We probably do not want to change the values accepted by the script each
      time a new helper gets a new indent style. However, it is worth noting
      that with those 5 spaces, the "Description" and "Return" part *look*
      aligned in the generated patch and in `git show`, so it is likely other
      helper authors will use the same length. Therefore, allow for helper
      documentation to use 5 spaces only for the first indent level.

      pull-request: bpf-next 2018-05-17
      The following pull-request contains BPF updates for your *net-next* tree.
      The main changes are:
      1) Provide a new BPF helper for doing a FIB and neighbor lookup
         in the kernel tables from an XDP or tc BPF program. The helper
         provides a fast-path for forwarding packets. The API supports
         IPv4, IPv6 and MPLS protocols, but currently IPv4 and IPv6 are
         implemented in this initial work, from David (Ahern).
      2) Just a tiny diff but huge feature enabled for nfp driver by
         extending the BPF offload beyond a pure host processing offload.
         Offloaded XDP programs are allowed to set the RX queue index and
         thus opening the door for defining a fully programmable RSS/n-tuple
         filter replacement. Once BPF decided on a queue already, the device
         data-path will skip the conventional RSS processing completely,
         from Jakub.
      3) The original sockmap implementation was array based similar to
         devmap. However unlike devmap where an ifindex has a 1:1 mapping
         into the map there are use cases with sockets that need to be
         referenced using longer keys. Hence, sockhash map is added reusing
         as much of the sockmap code as possible, from John.
      4) Introduce BTF ID. The ID is allocatd through an IDR similar as
         with BPF maps and progs. It also makes BTF accessible to user
         space via BPF_BTF_GET_FD_BY_ID and adds exposure of the BTF data
         through BPF_OBJ_GET_INFO_BY_FD, from Martin.
      5) Enable BPF stackmap with build_id also in NMI context. Due to the
         up_read() of current->mm->mmap_sem build_id cannot be parsed.
         This work defers the up_read() via a per-cpu irq_work so that
         at least limited support can be enabled, from Song.
      6) Various BPF JIT follow-up cleanups and fixups after the LD_ABS/LD_IND
         JIT conversion as well as implementation of an optimized 32/64 bit
         immediate load in the arm64 JIT that allows to reduce the number of
         emitted instructions; in case of tested real-world programs they
         were shrinking by three percent, from Daniel.
      7) Add ifindex parameter to the libbpf loader in order to enable
         BPF offload support. Right now only iproute2 can load offloaded
         BPF and this will also enable libbpf for direct integration into
         other applications, from David (Beckett).
      8) Convert the plain text documentation under Documentation/bpf/ into
         RST format since this is the appropriate standard the kernel is
         moving to for all documentation. Also add an overview README.rst,
         from Jesper.
      9) Add __printf verification attribute to the bpf_verifier_vlog()
         helper. Though it uses va_list we can still allow gcc to check
         the format string, from Mathieu.
      10) Fix a bash reference in the BPF selftest's Makefile. The '|& ...'
          is a bash 4.0+ feature which is not guaranteed to be available
          when calling out to shell, therefore use a more portable variant,
          from Joe.
      11) Fix a 64 bit division in xdp_umem_reg() by using div_u64()
          instead of relying on the gcc built-in, from Björn.
      12) Fix a sock hashmap kmalloc warning reported by syzbot when an
          overly large key size is used in hashmap then causing overflows
          in htab->elem_size. Reject bogus attr->key_size early in the
          sock_hash_alloc(), from Yonghong.
      13) Ensure in BPF selftests when urandom_read is being linked that
          --build-id is always enabled so that test_stacktrace_build_id[_nmi]
          won't be failing, from Alexei.
      14) Add bitsperlong.h as well as errno.h uapi headers into the tools
          header infrastructure which point to one of the arch specific
          uapi headers. This was needed in order to fix a build error on
          some systems for the BPF selftests, from Sirio.
      15) Allow for short options to be used in the xdp_monitor BPF sample
          code. And also a bpf.h tools uapi header sync in order to fix a
          selftest build failure. Both from Prashant.
      16) More formally clarify the meaning of ID in the direct packet access
          section of the BPF documentation, from Wang.
