Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 0/3] Add RISC-V (RV64G) BPF JIT

From: Björn Töpel <>


This series adds an RV64G BPF JIT to the kernel. I've sent out a RFC
for a couple of weeks ago, and think this code is
feature-complete/stable enough (famous last words) for a proper patch.

Unfortunately, kprobes isn't supported by RISC-V yet (Patrick Stählin
sent out an RFC last year), which means that all tests involving

Further, the implementation does not support "far branching" (>4KiB).
The implementation passes all the test_bpf.ko tests: test_bpf:
    Summary: 378 PASSED, 0 FAILED, [366/366 JIT'ed]
All the tail_call tests in the selftest/bpf/test_verifier program
All tests where done on QEMU emulator version 3.1.50
(v3.1.0-688-g8ae951fbc106). I'll test it on real hardware, when I get
access to it.

I'm routing this patch via bpf-next/netdev mailing list (after a
conversation with Palmer at FOSDEM), mainly because the other JITs
went that path.

Thanks for all the comments!


RFCv1 -> v1:
* Cleaned up the Kconfig and net/Makefile. (Christoph)
* Removed the entry-stub and squashed the build/config changes to be
  part of the JIT implementation. (Christoph)
* Simplified the register tracking code. (Daniel)
* Removed unused macros. (Daniel)
* Added myself as maintainer and updated documentation. (Daniel)
* Removed HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS. (Christoph, Palmer)
* Added tail-calls and cleaned up the code.
