      License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license · b2441318
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which
      makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license.
      By default all files without license information are under the default
      license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2.
      Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0'
      SPDX license identifier.  The SPDX identifier is a legally binding
      shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text.
      This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and
      Philippe Ombredanne.
      How this work was done:
      Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of
      the use cases:
       - file had no licensing information it it.
       - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it,
       - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information,
      Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases
      where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license
      had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords.
      The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to
      a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the
      output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX
      tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne.  Philippe prepared the
      base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files.
      The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files
      assessed.  Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner
      results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s)
      to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not
      immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was:
       - Files considered eligible had to be source code files.
       - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5
         lines of source
       - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5
      All documentation files were explicitly excluded.
      The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license
      identifiers to apply.
       - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was
         considered to have no license information in it, and the top level
         COPYING file license applied.
         For non */uapi/* files that summary was:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0                                              11139
         and resulted in the first patch in this series.
         If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH
         Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0".  Results of that was:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        930
         and resulted in the second patch in this series.
       - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one
         of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if
         any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in
         it (per prior point).  Results summary:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                       270
         GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      169
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause)    21
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    17
         LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      15
         GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       14
         ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    5
         LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       4
         LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT)              3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT)             1
         and that resulted in the third patch in this series.
       - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became
         the concluded license(s).
       - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a
         license but the other didn't, or they both detected different
         licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred.
       - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file
         resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and
         which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics).
       - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was
         confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
       - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier,
         the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later
         in time.
      In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the
      spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the
      source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation
      by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from
      FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners
      disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights.  The
      Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so
      they are related.
      Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets
      for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the
      files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks
      in about 15000 files.
      In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have
      copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the
      correct identifier.
      Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual
      inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch
      version early this week with:
       - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected
         license ids and scores
       - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+
         files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct
       - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license
         was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied
         SPDX license was correct
      This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction.  This
      worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the
      different types of files to be modified.
      These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg.  Thomas wrote a script to
      parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the
      format that the file expected.  This script was further refined by Greg
      based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to
      distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different
      comment types.)  Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to
      generate the patches.

      clk: bcm21664: use common clock framework · 7d3723ba
      Alex Elder authored
      Define the set of CCUs and provided clocks sufficient to satisfy the
      needs of all the existing clock references for BCM21664.  Replace
      the "fake" fixed-rate clocks used previously with "real" ones.
      Note that only the minimal set of these clocks and CCUs is defined
      here.  More clock definitions will need to be added as required by
      the addition of additional drivers.

      clk: bcm281xx: add initial clock framework support · 1f27f152
      Alex Elder authored
      Add code for device tree support of clocks in the BCM281xx family of
      SoCs.  Machines in this family use peripheral clocks implemented by
      "Kona" clock control units (CCUs).  (Other Broadcom SoC families use
      Kona style CCUs as well, but support for them is not yet upstream.)
      A BCM281xx SoC has multiple CCUs, each of which manages a set of
      clocks on the SoC.  A Kona peripheral clock is composite clock that
      may include a gate, a parent clock multiplexor, and zero, one
      or two dividers.  There is a variety of gate types, and many gates
      implement hardware-managed gating (often called "auto-gating").
      Most dividers divide their input clock signal by an integer value
      (one or more).  There are also "fractional" dividers which allow
      division by non-integer values.  To accomodate such dividers,
      clock rates and dividers are generally maintained by the code in
      "scaled" form, which allows integer and fractional dividers to
      be handled in a uniform way.
      If present, the gate for a Kona peripheral clock must be enabled
      when a change is made to its multiplexor or one of its dividers.
      Additionally, dividers and multiplexors have trigger registers which
      must be used whenever the divider value or selected parent clock is
      changed.  The same trigger is often used for a divider and
      multiplexor, and a BCM281xx peripheral clock occasionally has two
      The gate, dividers, and parent clock selector are treated in this
      code as "components" of a peripheral clock.  Their functionality is
      implemented directly--e.g. the common clock framework gate
      implementation is not used for a Kona peripheral clock gate.  (This
      has being considered though, and the intention is to evolve this
      code to leverage common code as much as possible.)
      The source code is divided into three general portions:
              These implement the basic Kona clock functionality,
              including the clk_ops methods and various routines to
              manipulate registers and interpret their values.  This
              includes some functions used to set clocks to a desired
              initial state (though this feature is only partially
              implemented here).
              This contains generic run-time initialization code for
              data structures representing Kona CCUs and clocks.  This
              encapsulates the clock structure initialization that can't
              be done statically.  Note that there is a great deal of
              validity-checking code here, making explicit certain
              assumptions in the code.   This is mostly useful for adding
              new clock definitions and could possibly be disabled for
              production use.
              This file defines the specific CCUs used by BCM281XX family
              SoCs, as well as the specific clocks implemented by each.
              It declares a device tree clock match entry for each CCU
              This file defines the selector (index) values used to
              identify a particular clock provided by a CCU.  It consists
              entirely of C preprocessor constants, to be used by both the
              C source and device tree source files.
