2015-02-19kdb: Avoid printing KERN_ levels to consolesDaniel Thompson
Currently when kdb traps printk messages then the raw log level prefix (consisting of '\001' followed by a numeral) does not get stripped off before the message is issued to the various I/O handlers supported by kdb. This causes annoying visual noise as well as causing problems grepping for ^. It is also a change of behaviour compared to normal usage of printk() usage. For example <SysRq>-h ends up with different output to that of kdb's "sr h". This patch addresses the problem by stripping log levels from messages before they are issued to the I/O handlers. printk() which can also act as an i/o handler in some cases is special cased; if the caller provided a log level then the prefix will be preserved when sent to printk(). The addition of non-printable characters to the output of kdb commands is a regression, albeit and extremely elderly one, introduced by commit 04d2c8c83d0e ("printk: convert the format for KERN_<LEVEL> to a 2 byte pattern"). Note also that this patch does *not* restore the original behaviour from v3.5. Instead it makes printk() from within a kdb command display the message without any prefix (i.e. like printk() normally does).

2014-11-11kdb: Add enable mask for groups of commandsAnton Vorontsov
Currently all kdb commands are enabled whenever kdb is deployed. This makes it difficult to deploy kdb to help debug certain types of systems. Android phones provide one example; the FIQ debugger found on some Android devices has a deliberately weak set of commands to allow the debugger to enabled very late in the production cycle. Certain kiosk environments offer another interesting case where an engineer might wish to probe the system state using passive inspection commands without providing sufficient power for a passer by to root it. Without any restrictions, obtaining the root rights via KDB is a matter of a few commands, and works everywhere. For example, log in as a normal user: cbou:~$ id uid=1001(cbou) gid=1001(cbou) groups=1001(cbou) Now enter KDB (for example via sysrq): Entering kdb (current=0xffff8800065bc740, pid 920) due to Keyboard Entry kdb> ps 23 sleeping system daemon (state M) processes suppressed, use 'ps A' to see all. Task Addr Pid Parent [*] cpu State Thread Command 0xffff8800065bc740 920 919 1 0 R 0xffff8800065bca20 *bash 0xffff880007078000 1 0 0 0 S 0xffff8800070782e0 init [...snip...] 0xffff8800065be3c0 918 1 0 0 S 0xffff8800065be6a0 getty 0xffff8800065b9c80 919 1 0 0 S 0xffff8800065b9f60 login 0xffff8800065bc740 920 919 1 0 R 0xffff8800065bca20 *bash All we need is the offset of cred pointers. We can look up the offset in the distro's kernel source, but it is unnecessary. We can just start dumping init's task_struct, until we see the process name: kdb> md 0xffff880007078000 0xffff880007078000 0000000000000001 ffff88000703c000 ................ 0xffff880007078010 0040210000000002 0000000000000000 .....!@.........

Creds are just above it, so the offset is 0x02b0. Now we set up init's creds for our non-privileged shell: kdb> mm 0xffff8800065bc740+0x02b0 0xffff8800073e0580 0xffff8800065bc9f0 = 0xffff8800073e0580 kdb> mm 0xffff8800065bc740+0x02b8 0xffff8800073e0580 0xffff8800065bc9f8 = 0xffff8800073e0580 And thus gaining the root: kdb> go cbou:~$ id uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root) cbou:~$ bash root:~# p.s. No distro enables kdb by default (although, with a nice KDB-over-KMS feature availability, I would expect at least some would enable it), so it's not actually some kind of a major issue.

2014-11-11kdb: Categorize kdb commands (similar to SysRq categorization)Daniel Thompson
This patch introduces several new flags to collect kdb commands into groups (later allowing them to be optionally disabled). This follows similar prior art to enable/disable magic sysrq commands. The commands have been categorized as follows: Always on: go (w/o args), env, set, help, ?, cpu (w/o args), sr, dmesg, disable_nmi, defcmd, summary, grephelp Mem read: md, mdr, mdp, mds, ef, bt (with args), per_cpu Mem write: mm Reg read: rd Reg write: go (with args), rm Inspect: bt (w/o args), btp, bta, btc, btt, ps, pid, lsmod Flow ctrl: bp, bl, bph, bc, be, bd, ss Signal: kill Reboot: reboot All: cpu, kgdb, (and all of the above), nmi_console Signed-off-by: Daniel Thompson <daniel.thompson@linaro.org> Cc: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>

2013-10-03kdb: Add support for external NMI handler to call KGDB/KDBMike Travis
This patch adds a kgdb_nmicallin() interface that can be used by external NMI handlers to call the KGDB/KDB handler. The primary need for this is for those types of NMI interrupts where all the CPUs have already received the NMI signal. Therefore no send_IPI(NMI) is required, and in fact it will cause a 2nd unhandled NMI to occur. This generates the "Dazed and Confuzed" messages. Since all the CPUs are getting the NMI at roughly the same time, it's not guaranteed that the first CPU that hits the NMI handler will manage to enter KGDB and set the dbg_master_lock before the slaves start entering. The new argument "send_ready" was added for KGDB to signal the NMI handler to release the slave CPUs for entry into KGDB.

2010-05-20kgdb,8250,pl011: Return immediately from console pollJason Wessel
The design of the kdb shell requires that every device that can provide input to kdb have a polling routine that exits immediately if there is no character available. This is required in order to get the page scrolling mechanism working. Changing the kernel debugger I/O API to require all polling character routines to exit immediately if there is no data allows the kernel debugger to process multiple input channels. NO_POLL_CHAR will be the return code to the polling routine when ever there is no character available. CC: linux-serial@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>
2010-05-20kdb: core for kgdb back end (1 of 2)Jason Wessel
This patch contains only the kdb core. Because the change set was large, it was split. The next patch in the series includes the instrumentation into the core kernel which are mainly helper functions for kdb. This work is directly derived from kdb v4.4 found at: ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/kdb/download/v4.4/ The kdb internals have been re-organized to make them mostly platform independent and to connect everything to the debug core which is used by gdbstub (which has long been known as kgdb). The original version of kdb was 58,000 lines worth of changes to support x86. From that implementation only the kdb shell, and basic commands for memory access, runcontrol, lsmod, and dmesg where carried forward. This is a generic implementation which aims to cover all the current architectures using the kgdb core: ppc, arm, x86, mips, sparc, sh and blackfin. More archictectures can be added by implementing the architecture specific kgdb functions.
