Is there any way of determining whether a specific kernel CONFIG option will be enabled or disabled by default without actually running make menuconfig and immediately saving it without making any changes?

In other words, can I accomplish this by just, say, find-ing and grep-ping the sources in a particular way?

grep CONFIG_<name> <path-to-sources>/.config should do that.

But that only works after a .config has been created, which is done by running make menuconfig and saving. This is exactly what I'm trying to avoid.

Unless I am very much mistaken, newly emerged kernel sources don't come with a .config file...

Code:
make defconfig


Or look at the defconfig files in arch/<arch>/configs. The <arch> for intel compatibles is "x86", with different defconfig files for 32 and 64 bit.

Also, "make help" informs about all the options.

That seems to be what I was looking for. I wanted to avoid all make commands.

Or not.

The options listed in arch/config/x86_64_defconfig don't match what I got by make menconfig with immediate save (I'm on a stable amd64 system). Not only does each file list CONFIGs not in the other, but there are several options that are listed in both but enabled in one and disabled in the other.

(I guess this makes sense, since otherwise there would be no need to have a separate make defconfig command!)

Surprisingly, though, the arch/config/x86_64_defconfig that came with my 3.12.21-gentoo-r1 kernel reports at the top:
Code:
# Linux kernel version: 2.6.30-rc2
# Mon May 11 16:22:00 2009

Which is crazy out of date. Is this really what would be used if I were to do a make defconfig on my 3.12.21-gentoo-r1 kernel sources?? (I never actually use that command.)

I suspected that with all the interdependencies among CONFIGs it would be impossible to tell what would be enabled and disabled without using one of the make commands. Looks like I was right.

So, anyway, just to clarify:
  • make menuconfig with immediate save sets CONFIGs to what gentoo-sources developers (*) see as default options
  • make defconfig sets the CONFIGs to what upstream sees as default options

Is that at all correct?

EDIT: (*) assuming that's the kernel you're using, of course

You are right, "make defconfig" does not yield the same file as in the "configs" directory:

Code:
18:56 build@kallisto /usr/src/linux-3.15.8-hardened $ md5sum arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig
0aca9e66eeddf2f813fd35603b0cf844  arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig
18:56 build@kallisto /usr/src/linux-3.15.8-hardened $ md5sum ~/kernel/def/.config
1d67936079f10ebfa2977854160fb917  /var/build//kernel/def/.config
18:57 build@kallisto /usr/src/linux-3.15.8-hardened $ md5sum ~/kernel/menu/.config
1d67936079f10ebfa2977854160fb917  /var/build//kernel/menu/.config


However, in my case the files in the "configs" directory are not outdated. They do not contain a date comment at the beginning, they simply start with the CONFIG options. To be exact, this is the file

Code:
/usr/src/linux-3.15.8-hardened/arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig


However, it seems you cannot get around code analysis, or running "make defconfig", unfortunately.

OMG, I just realized I quoted the x86_64_defconfig file from my current/old system instead of from my future/new system. (I've been sloooowly building a new Gentoo installation for over a month now...)

No wonder it was so out of date!

# head /usr/src/linux-2.6.31-gentoo-r10/arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig
Code:
#
# Automatically generated make config: don't edit
# Linux kernel version: 2.6.30-rc2
# Mon May 11 16:22:00 2009
#
CONFIG_64BIT=y
# CONFIG_X86_32 is not set
CONFIG_X86_64=y
CONFIG_X86=y
CONFIG_OUTPUT_FORMAT="elf64-x86-64"


# head /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux-3.12.21-gentoo-r1/arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig
Code:
CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL=y
# CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not set
CONFIG_SYSVIPC=y
CONFIG_POSIX_MQUEUE=y
CONFIG_BSD_PROCESS_ACCT=y
CONFIG_TASKSTATS=y
CONFIG_TASK_DELAY_ACCT=y
CONFIG_TASK_XACCT=y
CONFIG_TASK_IO_ACCOUNTING=y
CONFIG_AUDIT=y

This second one is the relevant one, of course.

For the sake of completeness, here's the top of the .config resulting from a "null-menuconfig":

# head config-3.12.21-gentoo-r1_ORIGINAL
Code:
#
# Automatically generated file; DO NOT EDIT.
# Linux/x86 3.12.21-gentoo-r1 Kernel Configuration
#

#
# Gentoo Linux
#
CONFIG_GENTOO_LINUX=y
CONFIG_GENTOO_LINUX_UDEV=y

Which illustrates why the two approaches couldn't possibly give the same results: the "gentoo-sources" have been fiddled with by the Gentoo developers, but apparently they don't touch the "defconfig" files:

# grep GENTOO /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux-3.12.21-gentoo-r1/arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig
Code:

(no output)

This supposition is verified by comparing this (3.12.21-gentoo-r1) "defconfig" file with one extracted from a linux-3.12.27.tar.xz tarball downloaded directly from kernel.org. The x86_64_defconfig files are identical.

If that option was enabled in kernel configuration, config of the running kernel can be found in /proc/config.gz

are you sure the md5sum is identical with different file-names and file creation dates? I doubt.
It would not make much sense to use md5sum than for iso files to check them when you download them.

there used to be some diff progs available to check files ...

Md5sum reads the file's content and does not care about filesystem attributes like filename and dates. For iso checking, this is even necessary.

In my quoted case, "make menuconfig" with immediate exit created completely the same .config like "make defconfig".

Well, damn. It's more complicated than I thought, apparently.

When I logged into my new Gentoo system (running a gentoo-sources-3.12.21-r1 kernel), emerged the latest stable sources (gentoo-sources-3.14.14), eselected the new kernel (to update the /usr/src/linux symlink), cd'd to that directory, and executed make menuconfig, I immediately noticed that it had picked up my old config settings because I saw the "LOCALVERSION" name I used for 3.12.21-r1 in the "General setup" submenu. I double-checked, and I really was in the 3.14.14 sources tree.

So, even though I ran make menuconfig (not make oldconfig) with no /usr/src/linux/.config* present (or any /usr/src/linux/config*, for that matter), it still found and used my old 3.12.21-r1 configuration!

Witness:

grep -P "gen|LOCALVERSION" config_3.14.14-gentoo.NULL_MENUCONFIG
Code:
# Automatically generated file; DO NOT EDIT.
# Linux/x86 3.14.14-gentoo Kernel Configuration
CONFIG_LOCALVERSION="-ice"
# CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not set
# PPS generators support

(The suffix "-ice" refers to my soundcard driver, the last thing I changed about my 3.12.21-r1 configuration before building that kernel for the last time.)

Note that I built 3.12.21-r1 with the options that save a copy of the config in the running kernel and makes the config available at /proc/config.gz, and saved the config file on the boot partition (default behavior of make install). According to this forum post from 2011, a config file for the same version kernel on /boot will be used by make menuconfig when rebuilding the same version kernel. Is that also true when building a kernel with a higher "major" version number (3.12.21-r1 to 3.14.14)? Doesn't seem like this should be the case, since otherwise make oldconfig would be redundant (unless there's a more subtle difference between the two make commands).

So I guess I'll try configuring 3.14.14 again with my boot partition unmounted (note that I have not actually built a 3.14.14 kernel yet), and see if that does what I want (which, just to be clear, is to get a .config file that is as independent of the configuration of the currently running kernel, and of any past kernels, as possible).

EDIT: Corrected the location of the "LOCALVERSION" config option.

Not counting something like make randconfig, of course! :)

I guess I should "come clean" and say exactly what I'm trying to accomplish....

When I built my 3.12.21-r1 kernel, the CONFIG_DEBUG_STACK_USAGE option was enabled (not intentionally by me), resulting in scary looking warnings appearing in the kernel log (dmesg). I submitted a bug at bugzilla.kernel.org, suggesting that the warning messages could be improved to help users who didn't intentionally set that option. The respondents essentially said that shouldn't happen and closed the bug, first as WILL_NOT_FIX and then (after I reopened it) as INVALID, saying it was a Gentoo problem. When I submitted a bug to Gentoo's Bugzilla suggesting that the option shouldn't be turned on by default, someone replied saying "gentoo-sources doesn't set this - it's upstream."

So... no one wants to take responsibility for this option being turned on without users' knowledge/consent, and I still don't know how it got turned on in my .config in the first place. It was not turned on, or even present in the .config file at all, in my 2.6.31-r10 kernel, which was the running kernel when I initially built 3.12.21-r1. (Although my 2.6.31-r10 did have the options CONFIG_STACKTRACE_SUPPORT and CONFIG_USER_STACKTRACE_SUPPORT enabled -- not sure that's even relevant.)

So that's why I was asking for a way of finding out if a particular option was going to be enabled by default without actually make-ing anything. Now I'd settle for actually using make to get a "default" configuration file that doesn't depend on what I have ever done in the past, and only depends on what gentoo kernel developers and/or Kernel.org developers have chosen as "default" configuration options. (Once I know how to do this, I can do it on a gentoo-sources tree and a kernel.org tree and compare the two. I haven't actually tried make <whatever> on a Kernel.org kernel yet.)

Use make defconfig. I have never seen DEBUG_STACK_USAGE switch on without user intervention.

OK, that's what I initially thought would give me the "Kernel.org developers' defaults". (Granted, I was talking about the file /usr/src/linux/arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig and not the result of running make defconfig on an x86_64 system, but I had assumed they were equivalent. More about this below.)

If you haven't already read my bugzilla.kernel.org bug report (linked to in my last post), I was told that "The kernel.org defaults are for developers not for end users", so they didn't accept "CONFIG_DEBUG_STACK_USAGE=y" showing up in a Kernel.org-supplied arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig file as evidence that they were turning on the stack debugging option for end-users.

Anyway... so I finally went back into my "new" (kernel-3.12.21-gentoo-r1-ice) system for more testing (again, using the latest-stable gentoo-sources-3.14.14).

The following three methods created exactly the same .config:
  • make menuconfig with immediate save and exit, with boot partition not mounted and no prior /usr/src/linux/.config*
  • make defconfig, with boot partition not mounted and no prior /usr/src/linux/.config*
  • make defconfig, with boot partition mounted and no prior /usr/src/linux/.config*

For this .config:
# grep -P "DEBUG_STACK|LOCALVERSION" config_3.14.14-gentoo.DEFCONFIG_BOOT_NOT_MOUNTED
Code:
CONFIG_LOCALVERSION=""
# CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not set
CONFIG_DEBUG_STACK_USAGE=y
CONFIG_HAVE_DEBUG_STACKOVERFLOW=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_STACKOVERFLOW=y


The following method created a different .config -- one "polluted" by the configuration found at /boot/config-3.12.21-gentoo-r1-ice:
  • make menuconfig with immediate save and exit, with boot partition mounted and no prior /usr/src/linux/.config*

And, of course, for this .config:
# grep -P "DEBUG_STACK|LOCALVERSION" config_3.14.14-gentoo.NULL_MENUCONFIG_BOOT_MOUNTED
Code:
CONFIG_LOCALVERSION="-ice"
# CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not set
CONFIG_DEBUG_STACK_USAGE=y
CONFIG_HAVE_DEBUG_STACKOVERFLOW=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_STACKOVERFLOW=y


So, no matter what, I'm getting DEBUG_STACK_USAGE turned on. (Again, I stress, these are kernel sources that have never had anything done to them beyond running make menconfig -- and now make defconfig -- and each time I have immediately moved the resulting .config out of /usr/src/linux/.)

Now...
# grep -A 7 DEBUG_STACK_USAGE /usr/src/linux-3.14.14-gentoo/lib/Kconfig.debug
Code:
config DEBUG_STACK_USAGE
   bool "Stack utilization instrumentation"
   depends on DEBUG_KERNEL && !IA64 && !PARISC && !METAG
   help
     Enables the display of the minimum amount of free stack which each
     task has ever had available in the sysrq-T and sysrq-P debug output.

     This option will slow down process creation somewhat.

And...

So, I'm getting a whole bunch of "Kernel debugging" options besides the ones I've been complaining about. (Note that DEBUG_KERNEL was not enabled in my 2.6.31-gentoo-r1 kernel.)

Ultimately, the fact that I'm getting DEBUG_STACK_USAGE enabled is the "responsibility" of the Gentoo kernel developers, right? Even if, as the Gentoo Bugzilla commenter said, "gentoo-sources doesn't set this - it's upstream", it is the responsibility of the Gentoo kernel developers to disable any debugging options not needed by their end-users, right?

And finally... like I said, I had assumed that the options listed in /usr/src/linux/arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig would actually be in the .config resulting from make defconfig on an x86_64 system. Again, I was wrong:
# grep -P "EXPERIMENTAL|NF_NAT" /usr/src/linux-3.14.14-gentoo/arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig
Code:

# grep -P "EXPERIMENTAL|NF_NAT" config_3.14.14-gentoo.DEFCONFIG_BOOT_NOT_MOUNTED
Code:
CONFIG_NF_NAT=m
CONFIG_NF_NAT_NEEDED=y
# CONFIG_NF_NAT_AMANDA is not set
CONFIG_NF_NAT_FTP=m
CONFIG_NF_NAT_IRC=m
CONFIG_NF_NAT_SIP=m
# CONFIG_NF_NAT_TFTP is not set
CONFIG_NF_NAT_IPV4=m
# CONFIG_NF_NAT_PPTP is not set
# CONFIG_NF_NAT_H323 is not set

Notice how EXPERIMENTAL disappeared and NF_NAT became a module instead of a built-in. (These are just "random" examples I picked out of a rather large diff.)

Presumably this is evidence that make defconfig (on gentoo-sources-*) really does give the Gentoo kernel developers' defaults and not the Kernel.org developers' defaults, as I suggested in my fourth post above.

Oh, and for the sake of completeness:
# grep -P "DEBUG_STACK|LOCALVERSION" /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux-3.14.14-gentoo/arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig
Code:
# CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not set
CONFIG_DEBUG_STACK_USAGE=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_STACKOVERFLOW=y
