Introduce a new CONFIG_CIFS_ROOT option to handle root file systems
over a SMB share.

In order to mount the root file system during the init process, make
cifs.ko perform non-blocking socket operations while mounting and
accessing it.

Hi David,

This patch has already been merged into Linus tree. The other two (2/3
and 3/3) still need to be reviewed.

I'm not sure how this works when series touch multiple subsystems --
that is, these changes should go through your tree or Steve's?

Please let me you know if you need anything else.

Thanks!
Paulo

Please resubmit this series when the net-next tree opens back up, and also
with an appropriate "[PATCH 0/N]" header posting explaining what the patch
series is doing, how it is doing it, and why it is doing it that way.

Thank you.

+Mounting root file system via SMB (cifs.ko)
+===========================================
+
+Written 2019 by Paulo Alcantara <palcantara@suse.de>
+Written 2019 by Aurelien Aptel <aaptel@suse.com>
+
+The CONFIG_CIFS_ROOT option enables experimental root file system
+support over the SMB protocol via cifs.ko.
+
+It introduces a new kernel command-line option called 'cifsroot='
+which will tell the kernel to mount the root file system over the
+network by utilizing SMB or CIFS protocol.
+
+In order to mount, the network stack will also need to be set up by
+using 'ip=' config option. For more details, see
+Documentation/filesystems/nfs/nfsroot.txt.
+
+A CIFS root mount currently requires the use of SMB1+UNIX Extensions
+which is only supported by the Samba server. SMB1 is the older
+deprecated version of the protocol but it has been extended to support
+POSIX features (See [1]). The equivalent extensions for the newer
+recommended version of the protocol (SMB3) have not been fully
+implemented yet which means SMB3 doesn't support some required POSIX
+file system objects (e.g. block devices, pipes, sockets).
+
+As a result, a CIFS root will default to SMB1 for now but the version
+to use can nonetheless be changed via the 'vers=' mount option.  This
+default will change once the SMB3 POSIX extensions are fully
+implemented.
+
+Server configuration
+====================
+
+To enable SMB1+UNIX extensions you will need to set these global
+settings in Samba smb.conf:
+
+    [global]
+    server min protocol = NT1
+    unix extension = yes        # default
+
+Kernel command line
+===================
+
+root=/dev/cifs
+
+This is just a virtual device that basically tells the kernel to mount
+the root file system via SMB protocol.
+
+cifsroot=//<server-ip>/<share>[,options]
+
+Enables the kernel to mount the root file system via SMB that are
+located in the <server-ip> and <share> specified in this option.
+
+The default mount options are set in fs/cifs/cifsroot.c.
+
+server-ip
+	IPv4 address of the server.
+
+share
+	Path to SMB share (rootfs).
+
+options
+	Optional mount options. For more information, see mount.cifs(8).
+
+Examples
+========
+
+Export root file system as a Samba share in smb.conf file.
+
+...
+[linux]
+	path = /path/to/rootfs
+	read only = no
+	guest ok = yes
+	force user = root
+	force group = root
+	browseable = yes
+	writeable = yes
+	admin users = root
+	public = yes
+	create mask = 0777
+	directory mask = 0777
+...
+
+Restart smb service.
+
+# systemctl restart smb
+
+Test it under QEMU on a kernel built with CONFIG_CIFS_ROOT and
+CONFIG_IP_PNP options enabled.
+
+# qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -cpu host -m 1024 \
+  -kernel /path/to/linux/arch/x86/boot/bzImage -nographic \
+  -append "root=/dev/cifs rw ip=dhcp cifsroot=//10.0.2.2/linux,username=foo,password=bar console=ttyS0 3"
