Description Gordon Bergling freebsd_committer 2020-12-26 10:37:47 UTC
On a recent -CURRENT from 20th of December the WireGuard module can't be loaded on ARM64 / RPi4.

# kldload if_wg
kldload: can't load if_wg: No such file or directory

but the module is present:

$ ls -l /boot/kernel/if_wg.ko
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  - 279704 Dec 20 20:34 /boot/kernel/if_wg.ko

dmesg shows that blake2 can't be loaded and indeed it can't be found on arm64.

KLD if_wg.ko: depends on blake2 - not available or version mismatch
Comment 1 Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2020-12-27 00:14:46 UTC
In sys/modules blake2 is built only on i386 and amd64. There is some optimized x86 asm included, but it should build on other archs (and indeed, it is possible to compile it into the kernel anywhere, per sys/conf/files).

commit 088343f0d45b05cc1a087d02997c1fee8e82ebc8 (HEAD -> wipbsd.20201226)

    Build blake2 module on all archs
    It contains optimized asm routines for x86 but the C implementations
    should build everywhere.

(In reply to Ed Maste from comment #1)

I tried the patch, but it fails because of some architecture specific compiler options.

Comment 3 Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2020-12-27 18:10:02 UTC
Ah yes, indeed - sys/conf/files contains rules for contrib/libb2/blake2b-ref.c and crypto/blake2/blake2-sw.c; it does not use any of the optimized versions. As a first step we should be able to use this in the module on !x86.

    if_wg: fix modules load on !x86

    Only x86 provides optimized implementations via the blake2 module. The
    software "reference" implementation is already included in the crypto(4)
    module, we can drop the extra MODULE_DEPEND for other platforms.

    Without this change, if_wg.ko could not be loaded due to the missing
