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
	depends on CC_HAS_ASM_GOTO
	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. )

	 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/core-api/unaligned-memory-access.rst 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/core-api/unaligned-memory-access.rst 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.

config SECCOMP

	def_bool y
	depends on HAVE_ARCH_SECCOMP
	help
	  This kernel feature is useful for number crunching applications
	  that may need to handle untrusted bytecode during their
	  execution. By using pipes or other transports made available
	  to the process as file descriptors supporting the read/write
	  syscalls, it's possible to isolate those applications in their
	  own address space using seccomp. Once seccomp is enabled via
	  prctl(PR_SET_SECCOMP) or the seccomp() syscall, it cannot be
	  disabled and the task is only allowed to execute a few safe
	  syscalls defined by each seccomp mode.

	  If unsure, say Y.

	  This option is for debugging only. Enabling presents the risk that
	  an adversary may be able to infer the seccomp filter logic.

	  If unsure, say N.

config HAVE_ARCH_STACKLEAK
	bool

	  An architecture should select this if it has the code which

	  value before returning from system calls.

config HAVE_STACKPROTECTOR
	bool
	help
	  An arch should select this symbol if:
	  - it has implemented a stack canary (e.g. __stack_chk_guard)

config STACKPROTECTOR
	bool "Stack Protector buffer overflow detection"
	depends on HAVE_STACKPROTECTOR
	depends on $(cc-option,-fstack-protector)
	default y
	help
	  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.

	  Functions will have the stack-protector canary logic added if they
	  have an 8-byte or larger character array on the stack.

	  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 STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG
	bool "Strong Stack Protector"
	depends on STACKPROTECTOR
	depends on $(cc-option,-fstack-protector-strong)
	default y
	help
	  Functions will have the stack-protector canary logic added in any
	  of the following conditions:

	  - local variable's address used as part of the right hand side of an
	    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
	  size by about 2%.

config ARCH_SUPPORTS_SHADOW_CALL_STACK

	  This option enables Clang's Shadow Call Stack, which uses a

	  overwritten by an attacker. More information can be found in
	  Clang's documentation:

	    https://clang.llvm.org/docs/ShadowCallStack.html

	  Note that security guarantees in the kernel differ from the
	  ones documented for user space. The kernel must store addresses
	  of shadow stacks in memory, which means an attacker capable of
	  reading and writing arbitrary memory may be able to locate them
	  and hijack control flow by modifying the stacks.

          This option enables Clang's full Link Time Optimization (LTO), which
          allows the compiler to optimize the kernel globally. If you enable
          this option, the compiler generates LLVM bitcode instead of ELF

          kernel configuration. More information can be found from LLVM's
          documentation:

	  entry implementation where the following requirements are met on
	  critical entry code, ie: before user_exit() or after user_enter():

	  - Critical entry code isn't preemptible (or better yet:
	    not interruptible).

	    are populated before running on a possibly unpopulated stack.
