* Retire obsolete GDB 6.1.1Ed Maste2020-12-151-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | GDB 6.1.1 was released in June 2004 and is long obsolete. It does not support all of the architectures that FreeBSD does, and imposes limitations on the FreeBSD kernel build, such as the continued use of DWARF2 debugging information. It was kept (in /usr/libexec/) only for use by crashinfo(8), which extracts some basic information from a kernel core dump after a crash. Crashinfo already prefers gdb from port/package if installed. Future work may add kernel debug support to LLDB or find another path for crashinfo's needs, but in any case we do not want to ship the excessively outdated GDB in FreeBSD 13.

* Switch net.add_addr_allfibs default to 0.Alexander V. Chernikov2020-11-081-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The goal of the fib support is to provide multiple independent routing tables, isolated from each other. net.add_addr_allfibs default tries to shift gears in the opposite direction, unconditionally inserting all addresses to all of the fibs. There are use cases when this is necessary, however this is not a default expected behaviour, especially compared to other implementations. Provide WARNING message for the setups with multiple fibs to notify potential users of the feature. Differential Revision: https://reviews.freebsd.org/D26076 Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=367491

* Turn MALLOC_PRODUCTION into a regular src.conf(5) optionDimitry Andric2020-09-051-3/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | For historical reasons, defining MALLOC_PRODUCTION in /etc/make.conf has been used to turn off potentially expensive debug checks and statistics gathering in the implementation of malloc(3). It seems more consistent to turn this into a regular src.conf(5) option, e.g. WITH_MALLOC_PRODUCTION / WITHOUT_MALLOC_PRODUCTION. This can then be toggled similar to any other source build option, and turned on or off by default for e.g. stable branches.

| * The practice of creating symbolic links is somewhat fragile. AlwaysWarner Losh2020-08-071-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | make copies instead. There's too many times that we can't run the new binaries with old libraries. Making the links when things are known to be 'safe' is a nice optimization, but a copy of all the binaries is only 30MB, so saving the copies at the cost of increased support when new symbols are added and used as part of the bootstrap seems to be unwise. There may be additional optimizations possible here, especially for !FreeBSD hosts. However, that's beyond the scope of the problem I'm trying to fix with make failing mid-way through an installworld across change r363679. This optimization there caused us to run a new binary with an old library once a new make was installed due to the symbolic link. One could just copy make, but then other binaries fail as well, so rather than play whack-a-mole, I opted to take us back to the old way. Before r340157 or so we did copies (thogh of a lot fewer artifacts), and we didn't have issues like this.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Some folks seem to be hitting issues with build orchestration; presumably some of our .WAIT-removal optimizations are going awry, and they're ending up with applications linked against new libc being installed before the new libc. Letting installworld complete the first time should ensure that the new libc is installed by the end of it, then the second installworld will ensure consistency as everything should succeed.
