cregit-Linux how code gets into the kernel

Release 4.12 include/linux/highuid.h

Directory: include/linux


#include <linux/types.h>

 * general notes:
 * CONFIG_UID16 is defined if the given architecture needs to
 * support backwards compatibility for old system calls.
 * kernel code should use uid_t and gid_t at all times when dealing with
 * kernel-private data.
 * old_uid_t and old_gid_t should only be different if CONFIG_UID16 is
 * defined, else the platform should provide dummy typedefs for them
 * such that they are equivalent to __kernel_{u,g}id_t.
 * uid16_t and gid16_t are used on all architectures. (when dealing
 * with structures hard coded to 16 bits, such as in filesystems)

 * This is the "overflow" UID and GID. They are used to signify uid/gid
 * overflow to old programs when they request uid/gid information but are
 * using the old 16 bit interfaces.
 * When you run a libc5 program, it will think that all highuid files or
 * processes are owned by this uid/gid.
 * The idea is that it's better to do so than possibly return 0 in lieu of
 * 65536, etc.

 * -1 is different in 16 bits than it is in 32 bits
 * these macros are used by chown(), setreuid(), ...,

 * Everything below this line is needed on all architectures, to deal with
 * filesystems that only store 16 bits of the UID/GID, etc.

 * This is the UID and GID that will get written to disk if a filesystem
 * only supports 16-bit UIDs and the kernel has a high UID/GID to write

 * Since these macros are used in architectures that only need limited
 * 16-bit UID back compatibility, we won't use old_uid_t and old_gid_t
