2009-09-23kallsyms: fix segfault in prefix_underscores_count()Paul Mundt
Commit b478b782e110fdb4135caa3062b6d687e989d994 "kallsyms, tracing: output more proper symbol name" introduces a "bugfix" that introduces a segfault in kallsyms in my configurations. The cause is the introduction of prefix_underscores_count() which attempts to count underscores, even in symbols that do not have them. As a result, it just uselessly runs past the end of the buffer until it crashes: CC init/version.o LD init/built-in.o LD .tmp_vmlinux1 KSYM .tmp_kallsyms1.S /bin/sh: line 1: 16934 Done sh-linux-gnu-nm -n .tmp_vmlinux1 16935 Segmentation fault | scripts/kallsyms > .tmp_kallsyms1.S make: *** [.tmp_kallsyms1.S] Error 139 This simplifies the logic and just does a straightforward count.

2009-03-14kallsyms, tracing: output more proper symbol nameLai Jiangshan
Impact: bugfix, output more reliable symbol lookup result Debug tools(dump_stack(), ftrace...) are like to print out symbols. But it is always print out the first aliased symbol.(Aliased symbols are symbols with the same address), and the first aliased symbol is sometime not proper. # echo function_graph > current_tracer # cat trace ...... 1) 1.923 us | select_nohz_load_balancer(); 1) + 76.692 us | } 1) | default_idle() { 1) ==========> | __irqentry_text_start() { 1) 0.000 us | native_apic_mem_write(); 1) | irq_enter() { 1) 0.000 us | idle_cpu(); 1) | tick_check_idle() { 1) 0.000 us | tick_check_oneshot_broadcast(); 1) | tick_nohz_stop_idle() { ...... It's very embarrassing, it ouputs "__irqentry_text_start()", actually, it should output "smp_apic_timer_interrupt()". (these two symbol are the same address, but "__irqentry_text_start" is deemed to the first aliased symbol by scripts/kallsyms) This patch puts symbols like "__irqentry_text_start" to the second aliased symbols. And a more proper symbol name becomes the first. Aliased symbols mostly come from linker script. The solution is guessing "is this symbol defined in linker script", the symbols defined in linker script will not become the first aliased symbol. And if symbols are found to be equal in this "linker script provided" criteria, symbols are sorted by the number of prefix underscores.

2008-12-19allow stripping of generated symbols under CONFIG_KALLSYMS_ALLJan Beulich
Building upon parts of the module stripping patch, this patch introduces similar stripping for vmlinux when CONFIG_KALLSYMS_ALL=y. Using CONFIG_KALLSYMS_STRIP_GENERATED reduces the overhead of CONFIG_KALLSYMS_ALL from 245k/310k to 65k/80k for the (i386/x86-64) kernels I tested with. The patch also does away with the need to special case the kallsyms- internal symbols by making them available even in the first linking stage. While it is a generated file, the patch includes the changes to scripts/genksyms/keywords.c_shipped, as I'm unsure what the procedure here is.

2008-02-06kallsyms should prefer non weak symbolsPaulo Marques
When resolving symbol names from addresses with aliased symbol names, kallsyms_lookup always returns the first symbol, even if it is a weak symbol. This patch changes this by sorting the symbols with the weak symbols last before feeding them to the kernel. This way the kernel runtime isn't changed at all, only the kallsyms build system is changed. Another side effect is that the symbols get sorted by address, too. So, even if future binutils version have some bug in "nm" that makes it fail to correctly sort symbols by address, the kernel won't be affected by this. Mathieu says: I created a module in LTTng that uses kallsyms to get the symbol corresponding to a specific system call address. Unfortunately, all the unimplemented syscalls were all referring to the (same) weak symbol identifying an unrelated system call rather that sys_ni (or whatever non-weak symbol would be expected). Kallsyms was dumbly returning the first symbol that matched. This patch makes sure kallsyms returns the non-weak symbol when there is one, which seems to be the expected result.

2008-02-06remove support for un-needed _extratext sectionRobin Getz
When passing a zero address to kallsyms_lookup(), the kernel thought it was a valid kernel address, even if it is not. This is because is_ksym_addr() called is_kernel_extratext() and checked against labels that don't exist on many archs (which default as zero). Since PPC was the only kernel which defines _extra_text, (in 2005), and no longer needs it, this patch removes _extra_text support.

2007-07-17kallsyms: make KSYM_NAME_LEN include space for trailing '\0'Tejun Heo
KSYM_NAME_LEN is peculiar in that it does not include the space for the trailing '\0', forcing all users to use KSYM_NAME_LEN + 1 when allocating buffer. This is nonsense and error-prone. Moreover, when the caller forgets that it's very likely to subtly bite back by corrupting the stack because the last position of the buffer is always cleared to zero. This patch increments KSYM_NAME_LEN by one and updates code accordingly. * off-by-one bug in asm-powerpc/kprobes.h::kprobe_lookup_name() macro is fixed. * Where MODULE_NAME_LEN and KSYM_NAME_LEN were used together, MODULE_NAME_LEN was treated as if it didn't include space for the trailing '\0'.

2007-07-17kallsyms: remove usage of memmem and _GNU_SOURCE from scripts/kallsyms.cPaulo Marques
The only in-kernel user of "memmem" is scripts/kallsyms.c and it only uses it to find tokens that are 2 bytes in size. It is trivial to replace it with a simple function that finds 2-byte tokens.

2005-09-07[PATCH] kallsyms: change compression algorithmPaulo Marques
This patch changes the way the compression algorithm works. The base algorithm is similiar to the previous but we force the compressed token size to 2. Having a fixed size compressed token allows for a lot of optimizations, and that in turn allows this code to run over *all* the symbols faster than it did before over just a subset. Having it work over all the symbols will make it behave better when symbols change positions between passes, and the "inconsistent kallsyms" messages should become less frequent. In my tests the compression ratio was degraded by about 0.5%, but the results will depend greatly on the number of symbols to compress.

2005-05-05[PATCH] ppc32: platform-specific functions missing from kallsyms.David Woodhouse
The PPC32 kernel puts platform-specific functions into separate sections so that unneeded parts of it can be freed when we've booted and actually worked out what we're running on today. This makes kallsyms ignore those functions, because they're not between _[se]text or _[se]inittext. Rather than teaching kallsyms about the various pmac/chrp/etc sections, this patch adds '_[se]extratext' markers for kallsyms.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
