10 years agoftrace: adding other non-leaving .text sections

ftrace: adding other non-leaving .text sections

Impact: widen the scope of recordmcount.pl

Besides .text section, there are three .text sections that won't
be freed after kernel booting. They are: .sched.text, .spinlock.text
and .kprobes.text, which contain functions we can trace. But the last
section ".kprobes.text" is particular, which has been marked as "notrace",
we ignore it. Thus we add other two sections.

x86, bts, ftrace: a BTS ftrace plug-in prototype

Impact: add new ftrace plugin

A prototype for a BTS ftrace plug-in.

The tracer collects branch trace in a cyclic buffer for each cpu.

The tracer is not configurable and the trace for each snapshot is
appended when doing cat /debug/tracing/trace.

This is a proof of concept that will be extended with future patches
to become a (hopefully) useful tool.

x86, bts: base in-kernel ds interface on handles

Impact: generalize the DS code to shared buffers

Change the in-kernel ds.h interface to identify the tracer via a
handle returned on ds_request_~().

Tracers used to be identified via their task_struct.

The changes are required to allow DS to be shared between different
tasks, which is needed for perfmon2 and for ftrace.

For ptrace, the handle is stored in the traced task's task_struct.
This should probably go into a (arch-specific) ptrace context some
time.

The detection is now fixed by using the ring buffer API.

When mmiotrace detects a buffer overrun, it will report the number of
lost events. People reading an mmiotrace log must know if something was
missed, otherwise the data may not make sense.

The manual revert of the sparse_irq patches missed to bring the number

when two multichannel network cards were placed in a system with only
one IO_APIC - causing the networking driver to not have the right

NR_IRQS in probe_nr_irqs() for now.

tracing/stack-tracer: introduce CONFIG_USER_STACKTRACE_SUPPORT

Impact: cleanup

User stack tracing is just implemented for x86, but it is not x86 specific.

Introduce a generic config flag, that is currently enabled only for x86.
When other arches implement it, they will have to
SELECT USER_STACKTRACE_SUPPORT.

10 years agotrace: fix compiler warning in branch profiler
Steven Rostedt [Fri, 21 Nov 2008 19:44:57 +0000]
trace: fix compiler warning in branch profiler

Impact: fix compiler warning

The ftrace_pointers used in the branch profiler are constant values.
They should never change. But the compiler complains when they are
passed into the debugfs_create_file as a data pointer, because the
function discards the qualifier.

This patch typecasts the parameter to debugfs_create_file back to
a void pointer. To remind the callbacks that they are pointing to
a constant value, I also modified the callback local pointers to
be const struct ftrace_pointer * as well.

tracing: identify which executable object the userspace address belongs to

Impact: modify+improve the userstacktrace tracing visualization feature

Store thread group leader id, and use it to lookup the address in the
process's map. We could have looked up the address on thread's map,
but the thread might not exist by the time we are called. The process
might not exist either, but if you are reading trace_pipe, that is
unlikely.

Example usage:

 mount -t debugfs nodev /sys/kernel/debug
 cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing
 echo userstacktrace >iter_ctrl
 echo sym-userobj >iter_ctrl
 echo sched_switch >current_tracer
 echo 1 >tracing_enabled
 cat trace_pipe >/tmp/trace&
 .... run application ...
 echo 0 >tracing_enabled
 cat /tmp/trace

You'll see stack entries like:

   /lib/libpthread-2.7.so[+0xd370]

You can convert them to function/line using:

   addr2line -fie /lib/libpthread-2.7.so 0xd370

Or:

   addr2line -fie /usr/lib/debug/libpthread-2.7.so 0xd370

For non-PIC/PIE executables this won't work:

   a.out[+0x73b]

You need to run the following: addr2line -fie a.out 0x40073b
(where 0x400000 is the default load address of a.out)

tracing/function-return-tracer: store return stack into task_struct and allocate it dynamically

Impact: use deeper function tracing depth safely

Some tests showed that function return tracing needed a more deeper depth
of function calls. But it could be unsafe to store these return addresses
to the stack.

So these arrays will now be allocated dynamically into task_struct of current
only when the tracer is activated.

Typical scheme when tracer is activated:
- allocate a return stack for each task in global list.
- fork: allocate the return stack for the newly created task
- exit: free return stack of current
- idle init: same as fork

I chose a default depth of 50. I don't have overruns anymore.

function tracing: fix wrong position computing of stack_trace

Impact: make output of stack_trace complete if buffer overruns

When read buffer overruns, the output of stack_trace isn't complete.

When printing records with seq_printf in t_show, if the read buffer
has overruned by the current record, then this record won't be
printed to user space through read buffer, it will just be dropped in
this printing.

When next printing, t_start should return the "*pos"th record, which
is the one dropped by previous printing, but it just returns
(m->private + *pos)th record.

Here we use a more sane method to implement seq_operations which can
be found in kernel code. Thus we needn't initialize m->private.

About testing, it's not easy to overrun read buffer, but we can use
seq_printf to print more padding bytes in t_show, then it's easy to
check whether or not records are lost.

This commit has been tested on both condition of overrun and non
overrun.

[IA64] use mprintk instead of printk, in ia64_mca_modify_original_stack

Using printk from MCA/INIT context is unsafe since it can cause deadlock.
The ia64_mca_modify_original_stack is called from both of mca handler and
init handler, so it should use mprintk instead of printk.

[IA64] Rationalize kernel mode alignment checking

Itanium processors can handle some misaligned data accesses. They
also provide a mode where all such accesses are forced to trap. The
kernel was schizophrenic about use of this mode:

* Base kernel code ran in permissive mode where the only traps
  generated were from those cases that the h/w could not handle.
* Interrupt, syscall and trap code ran in strict mode where all
  unaligned accesses caused traps to the 0x5a00 unaligned reference
  vector.

Use strict alignment checking throughout the kernel, but make
sure that we continue to let user mode use more relaxed mode
as the default.

10 years agox86: Fix interrupt leak due to migration
Matthew Wilcox [Thu, 20 Nov 2008 21:09:33 +0000]
x86: Fix interrupt leak due to migration

When we migrate an interrupt from one CPU to another, we set the
move_in_progress flag and clean up the vectors later once they're not
being used.  If you're unlucky and call destroy_irq() before the vectors
become un-used, the move_in_progress flag is never cleared, which causes
the interrupt to become unusable.

This was discovered by Jesse Brandeburg for whom it manifested as an
MSI-X device refusing to use MSI-X mode when the driver was unloaded
and reloaded repeatedly.

SUNRPC: Fix a performance regression in the RPC authentication code

Fix a regression reported by Max Kellermann whereby kernel profiling
showed that his clients were spending 45% of their time in
rpcauth_lookup_credcache.

It turns out that although his processes had identical uid/gid/groups,
generic_match() was failing to detect this, because the task->group_info
pointers were not shared. This again lead to the creation of a huge number
of identical credentials at the RPC layer.

The regression is fixed by comparing the contents of task->group_info
if the actual pointers are not identical.

The problem is that compat_arch_ptrace() enters with an addr value of
type compat_ulong_t and calls translate_usr_offset() to translate the
address offset into a struct pt_regs offset like this:

addr = translate_usr_offset(addr)

this means that any return value of translate_usr_offset() is stored
back as compat_ulong_t type into the addr variable.

But since translate_usr_offset() returns -1 for invalid offsets, addr
can now get the value 0xffffffff which then fails the next return-value
sanity check and thus the kernel tries to access invalid memory:

if (addr < 0)
break;

Fix this bug by modifying translate_usr_offset() to take and return
values of type compat_ulong_t, and by returning the value
"sizeof(struct pt_regs)" as an error indicator.

Additionally change the sanity check to check for return values
for >= sizeof(struct pt_regs).

This patch survived my compile and run-tests.

USB: usbmon: fix read(2)

There's a bug in the usbmon binary reader: When using read() to fetch
the packets and a packet's data is partially read, the next read call
will once again return up to len_cap bytes of data. The b_read counter
is not regarded when determining the remaining chunk size.

So, when dumping USB data with "cat /dev/usbmon0 > usbmon.trace" while
reading from a USB storage device and analyzing the dump file
afterwards it will get out of sync after a couple of packets.

It turns out that atomic_inc_return() returns the *new* value
not the original one, so the logic in rndis_response_available()
kept the first RNDIS response notification from getting out.
