Subject: [PATCH -tip v2] kprobes: Prohibit probing on BUG() and WARN() address
Date: Tue,  3 Sep 2019 20:08:21 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <156750890133.19112.3393666300746167111.stgit@devnote2> (raw)

Since BUG() and WARN() may use a trap (e.g. UD2 on x86) to
get the address where the BUG() has occurred, kprobes can not
do single-step out-of-line that instruction. So prohibit
probing on such address.

Without this fix, if someone put a kprobe on WARN(), the
kernel will crash with invalid opcode error instead of
outputing warning message, because kernel can not find
correct bug address.

Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@kernel.org>

  Changes in v2:
   - Add find_bug() stub function for !CONFIG_GENERIC_BUG
   - Cast the p->addr to unsigned long.
