coredump_filter: add hugepage dumping
Presently hugepage's vma has a VM_RESERVED flag in order not to be swapped. But a VM_RESERVED vma isn't core dumped because this flag is often used for some kernel vmas (e.g. vmalloc, sound related). Thus hugepages are never dumped and it can't be debugged easily. Many developers want hugepages to be included into core-dump. However, We can't read generic VM_RESERVED area because this area is often IO mapping area. then these area reading may change device state. it is definitly undesiable side-effect. So adding a hugepage specific bit to the coredump filter is better. It will be able to hugepage core dumping and doesn't cause any side-effect to any i/o devices. In additional, libhugetlb use hugetlb private mapping pages as anonymous page. Then, hugepage private mapping pages should be core dumped by default. Then, /proc/[pid]/core_dump_filter has two new bits. - bit 5 mean hugetlb private mapping pages are dumped or not. (default: yes) - bit 6 mean hugetlb shared mapping pages are dumped or not. (default: no) I tested by following method. % ulimit -c unlimited % ./crash_hugepage 50 % ./crash_hugepage 50 -p % ls -lh % gdb ./crash_hugepage core % % echo 0x43 > /proc/self/coredump_filter % ./crash_hugepage 50 % ./crash_hugepage 50 -p % ls -lh % gdb ./crash_hugepage core #include <stdlib.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <sys/mman.h> #include <string.h> #include "hugetlbfs.h" int main(int argc, char** argv){ char* p; int ch; int mmap_flags = MAP_SHARED; int fd; int nr_pages; while((ch = getopt(argc, argv, "p")) != -1) { switch (ch) { case 'p': mmap_flags &= ~MAP_SHARED; mmap_flags |= MAP_PRIVATE; break; default: /* nothing*/ break; } } argc -= optind; argv += optind; if (argc == 0){ printf("need # of pages\n"); exit(1); } nr_pages = atoi(argv[0]); if (nr_pages < 2) { printf("nr_pages must >2\n"); exit(1); } fd = hugetlbfs_unlinked_fd(); p = mmap(NULL, nr_pages * gethugepagesize(), PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, mmap_flags, fd, 0); sleep(2); *(p + gethugepagesize()) = 1; /* COW */ sleep(2); /* crash! */ *(int*)0 = 1; return 0; } Signed-off-by: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com> Reviewed-by: Kawai Hidehiro <hidehiro.kawai.ez@hitachi.com> Cc: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com> Cc: William Irwin <wli@holomorphy.com> Cc: Adam Litke <agl@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
