config OPROFILE
	tristate "OProfile system profiling"
	depends on PROFILING
	depends on HAVE_OPROFILE
	select RING_BUFFER
	select RING_BUFFER_ALLOW_SWAP
	help
	  OProfile is a profiling system capable of profiling the
	  whole system, include the kernel, kernel modules, libraries,
	  and applications.

	  If unsure, say N.

config OPROFILE_EVENT_MULTIPLEX
	bool "OProfile multiplexing support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
	default n
	depends on OPROFILE && X86
	help
	  The number of hardware counters is limited. The multiplexing
	  feature enables OProfile to gather more events than counters
	  are provided by the hardware. This is realized by switching
	  between events at a user specified time interval.

	  If unsure, say N.

config HAVE_OPROFILE
	bool

config OPROFILE_NMI_TIMER
	def_bool y
	depends on PERF_EVENTS && HAVE_PERF_EVENTS_NMI && !PPC64

config KPROBES
	bool "Kprobes"
	depends on MODULES
	depends on HAVE_KPROBES
	select KALLSYMS
	help
	  Kprobes allows you to trap at almost any kernel address and
	  execute a callback function.  register_kprobe() establishes
	  a probepoint and specifies the callback.  Kprobes is useful
	  for kernel debugging, non-intrusive instrumentation and testing.
	  If in doubt, say "N".

config JUMP_LABEL
       bool "Optimize very unlikely/likely branches"
       depends on HAVE_ARCH_JUMP_LABEL
       help
         This option enables a transparent branch optimization that
	 makes certain almost-always-true or almost-always-false branch
	 conditions even cheaper to execute within the kernel.

	 Certain performance-sensitive kernel code, such as trace points,
	 scheduler functionality, networking code and KVM have such
	 branches and include support for this optimization technique.

         If it is detected that the compiler has support for "asm goto",
	 the kernel will compile such branches with just a nop
	 instruction. When the condition flag is toggled to true, the
	 nop will be converted to a jump instruction to execute the
	 conditional block of instructions.

	 This technique lowers overhead and stress on the branch prediction
	 of the processor and generally makes the kernel faster. The update
	 of the condition is slower, but those are always very rare.

	 ( On 32-bit x86, the necessary options added to the compiler
	   flags may increase the size of the kernel slightly. )

config STATIC_KEYS_SELFTEST
	bool "Static key selftest"
	depends on JUMP_LABEL
	help
	  Boot time self-test of the branch patching code.

config OPTPROBES
	def_bool y
	depends on KPROBES && HAVE_OPTPROBES
	depends on !PREEMPT

config KPROBES_ON_FTRACE
	def_bool y
	depends on KPROBES && HAVE_KPROBES_ON_FTRACE
	depends on DYNAMIC_FTRACE_WITH_REGS
	help
	 If function tracer is enabled and the arch supports full
	 passing of pt_regs to function tracing, then kprobes can
	 optimize on top of function tracing.

config UPROBES
	def_bool n
	depends on ARCH_SUPPORTS_UPROBES
	help
	  Uprobes is the user-space counterpart to kprobes: they
	  enable instrumentation applications (such as 'perf probe')
	  to establish unintrusive probes in user-space binaries and
	  libraries, by executing handler functions when the probes
	  are hit by user-space applications.

	  ( These probes come in the form of single-byte breakpoints,
	    managed by the kernel and kept transparent to the probed
	    application. )

config HAVE_64BIT_ALIGNED_ACCESS
	def_bool 64BIT && !HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS
	help
	  Some architectures require 64 bit accesses to be 64 bit
	  aligned, which also requires structs containing 64 bit values
	  to be 64 bit aligned too. This includes some 32 bit
	  architectures which can do 64 bit accesses, as well as 64 bit
	  architectures without unaligned access.

	  This symbol should be selected by an architecture if 64 bit
	  accesses are required to be 64 bit aligned in this way even
	  though it is not a 64 bit architecture.

	  See Documentation/unaligned-memory-access.txt for more
	  information on the topic of unaligned memory accesses.

config HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS
	bool
	help
	  Some architectures are unable to perform unaligned accesses
	  without the use of get_unaligned/put_unaligned. Others are
	  unable to perform such accesses efficiently (e.g. trap on
	  unaligned access and require fixing it up in the exception
	  handler.)

	  This symbol should be selected by an architecture if it can
	  perform unaligned accesses efficiently to allow different
	  code paths to be selected for these cases. Some network
	  drivers, for example, could opt to not fix up alignment
	  problems with received packets if doing so would not help
	  much.

	  See Documentation/unaligned-memory-access.txt for more
	  information on the topic of unaligned memory accesses.

config ARCH_USE_BUILTIN_BSWAP
       bool
       help
	 Modern versions of GCC (since 4.4) have builtin functions
	 for handling byte-swapping. Using these, instead of the old
	 inline assembler that the architecture code provides in the
	 __arch_bswapXX() macros, allows the compiler to see what's
	 happening and offers more opportunity for optimisation. In
	 particular, the compiler will be able to combine the byteswap
	 with a nearby load or store and use load-and-swap or
	 store-and-swap instructions if the architecture has them. It
	 should almost *never* result in code which is worse than the
	 hand-coded assembler in <asm/swab.h>.  But just in case it
	 does, the use of the builtins is optional.

	 Any architecture with load-and-swap or store-and-swap
	 instructions should set this. And it shouldn't hurt to set it
	 on architectures that don't have such instructions.

	  GCC plugins are loadable modules that provide extra features to the

	  The complexity M of a function's control flow graph is defined as:
	   M = E - N + 2P
	  where

	  E = the number of edges
	  N = the number of nodes
	  P = the number of connected components (exit nodes).

	  Enabling this plugin reports the complexity to stderr during the
	  build. It mainly serves as a simple example of how to create a
	  gcc plugin for the kernel.

config GCC_PLUGIN_SANCOV

	help
	  This plugin inserts a __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc() call at the start of

	  by Dmitry Vyukov <dvyukov@google.com>.

config GCC_PLUGIN_LATENT_ENTROPY
	bool "Generate some entropy during boot and runtime"
	depends on GCC_PLUGINS
	help
	  By saying Y here the kernel will instrument some kernel code to
	  extract some entropy from both original and artificially created
	  program state.  This will help especially embedded systems where
	  there is little 'natural' source of entropy normally.  The cost
	  is some slowdown of the boot process (about 0.5%) and fork and
	  irq processing.

	  Note that entropy extracted this way is not cryptographically

	  This option turns on the "stack-protector" GCC feature. This
	  feature puts, at the beginning of functions, a canary value on
	  the stack just before the return address, and validates
	  the value just before actually returning.  Stack based buffer
	  overflows (that need to overwrite this return address) now also
	  overwrite the canary, which gets detected and the attack is then
	  neutralized via a kernel panic.

	  This feature requires gcc version 4.2 or above, or a distribution
	  gcc with the feature backported ("-fstack-protector").

	  On an x86 "defconfig" build, this feature adds canary checks to
	  about 3% of all kernel functions, which increases kernel code size
	  by about 0.3%.

config CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG

	    assignment or function argument
	  - local variable is an array (or union containing an array),
	    regardless of array type or length
	  - uses register local variables

	  This feature requires gcc version 4.9 or above, or a distribution
	  gcc with the feature backported ("-fstack-protector-strong").

	  On an x86 "defconfig" build, this feature adds canary checks to
	  about 20% of all kernel functions, which increases the kernel code

	  This requires that the arch annotates or otherwise protects

	  An arch should select this symbol if it can support kernel stacks

	  - Stacks in vmalloc space need to work reliably.  For example, if
	    vmap page tables are created on demand, either this mechanism
	    needs to work while the stack points to a virtual address with
	    unpopulated page tables or arch code (switch_to() and switch_mm(),
	    most likely) needs to ensure that the stack's page table entries
	    are populated before running on a possibly unpopulated stack.

	  - If the stack overflows into a guard page, something reasonable
