help
This option adds an alternative code sequence to work around ARM
erratum 826319 on Cortex-A53 parts up to r0p2 with an AMBA 4 ACE or
AXI master interface and an L2 cache.
If a Cortex-A53 uses an AMBA AXI4 ACE interface to other processors

not progress on read data presented on the read data channel and the
system can deadlock.
The workaround promotes data cache clean instructions to

Under certain conditions this erratum can cause a clean line eviction

If a Cortex-A53 processor is executing a store or prefetch for
write instruction at the same time as a processor in another

erratum 832075 on Cortex-A57 parts up to r1p2.

Affected Cortex-A57 parts might report a Stage 2 translation
fault as the result of a Stage 1 fault for load crossing a
page boundary when there is a permission or device memory
alignment fault at Stage 1 and a translation fault at Stage 2.
The workaround is to verify that the Stage 1 translation

When running a compat (AArch32) userspace on an affected Cortex-A53
part, a load at EL0 from a virtual address that matches the bottom 32
bits of the virtual address used by a recent load at (AArch64) EL1

Affected Cortex-A55 cores (r0p0, r0p1, r1p0) could cause incorrect
update of the hardware dirty bit when the DBM/AP bits are updated

The kernel memory allocator divides physically contiguous memory
blocks into "zones", where each zone is a power of two number of
pages. This option selects the largest power of two that the kernel
keeps in the memory allocator. If you need to allocate very large
blocks of physically contiguous memory, then you may need to
increase this value.
This config option is actually maximum order plus one. For example,
a value of 11 means that the largest free memory block is 2^10 pages.
We make sure that we can allocate upto a HugePage size for each configuration.
Hence we have :
MAX_ORDER = (PMD_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) + 1 => PAGE_SHIFT - 2
However for 4K, we choose a higher default value, 11 as opposed to 10, giving us
4M allocations matching the default size used by generic code.

help
ARMv8 obsoletes the use of A32 SWP/SWPB instructions such that

emulation of these instructions for userspace using LDXR/STXR.
In some older versions of glibc [<=2.8] SWP is used during futex
trylock() operations with the assumption that the code will not
be preempted. This invalid assumption may be more likely to fail
with SWP emulation enabled, leading to deadlock of the user
application.
NOTE: when accessing uncached shared regions, LDXR/STXR rely

capable processors, accesses to pages with PTE_AF cleared will

Similarly, writes to read-only pages with the DBM bit set will

bool "Randomize the module region independently from the core kernel"
depends on RANDOMIZE_BASE && !DYNAMIC_FTRACE
default y
help
Randomizes the location of the module region without considering the
location of the core kernel. This way, it is impossible for modules
to leak information about the location of core kernel data structures
but it does imply that function calls between modules and the core
kernel will need to be resolved via veneers in the module PLT.
When this option is not set, the module region will be randomized over
a limited range that contains the [_stext, _etext] interval of the
core kernel, so branch relocations are always in range.

Enable support for the ARM64 ACPI parking protocol. If disabled
the kernel will not allow booting through the ARM64 ACPI parking
protocol even if the corresponding data is present in the ACPI
MADT table.

Uses the command-line options passed by the boot loader. If
the boot loader doesn't provide any, the default kernel command
string provided in CMDLINE will be used.

The command-line arguments provided by the boot loader will be
appended to the default kernel command string.

help
Always use the default kernel command string, even if the boot
loader passes other arguments to the kernel.
This is useful if you cannot or don't want to change the
command-line options your boot loader passes to the kernel.

This option provides support for runtime services provided
by UEFI firmware (such as non-volatile variables, realtime
clock, and platform reset). A UEFI stub is also provided to
allow the kernel to be booted as an EFI application. This
is only useful on systems that have UEFI firmware.

help
This enables SMBIOS/DMI feature for systems.
This option is only useful on systems that have UEFI firmware.
However, even with this option, the resultant kernel should
continue to boot on existing non-UEFI platforms.

This option enables support for a 32-bit EL0 running under a 64-bit
kernel at EL1. AArch32-specific components such as system calls,
the user helper functions, VFP support and the ptrace interface are
handled appropriately by the kernel.
If you use a page size other than 4KB (i.e, 16KB or 64KB), please be aware
that you will only be able to execute AArch32 binaries that were compiled
with page size aligned segments.
If you want to execute 32-bit userspace applications, say Y.
