Apologies for the delayed update. Its been quite some time since I
posted the last version (v5), but I have been really caught up in some
other critical issues.

Changes since v5:
----------------
- v5 can be viewed here:
  http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/kexec/2019-November/024055.html
- Addressed review comments from James Morse and Boris.
- Added Tested-by received from John on v5 patchset.
- Rebased against arm64 (for-next/ptr-auth) branch which has Amit's
  patchset for ARMv8.3-A Pointer Authentication feature vmcoreinfo
  applied.

Changes since v4:
----------------
- v4 can be seen here:
  http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/kexec/2019-November/023961.html
- Addressed comments from Dave and added patches for documenting
  new variables appended to vmcoreinfo documentation.
- Added testing report shared by Akashi for PATCH 2/5.

Changes since v3:
----------------
- v3 can be seen here:
  http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/kexec/2019-March/022590.html
- Addressed comments from James and exported TCR_EL1.T1SZ in vmcoreinfo
  instead of PTRS_PER_PGD.
- Added a new patch (via [PATCH 3/3]), which fixes a simple typo in
  'Documentation/arm64/memory.rst'

Changes since v2:
----------------
- v2 can be seen here:
  http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/kexec/2019-March/022531.html
- Protected 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' vmcoreinfo variable under CONFIG_SPARSEMEM
  ifdef sections, as suggested by Kazu.
- Updated vmcoreinfo documentation to add description about
  'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' variable (via [PATCH 3/3]).

Changes since v1:
----------------
- v1 was sent out as a single patch which can be seen here:
  http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/kexec/2019-February/022411.html

- v2 breaks the single patch into two independent patches:
  [PATCH 1/2] appends 'PTRS_PER_PGD' to vmcoreinfo for arm64 arch, whereas
  [PATCH 2/2] appends 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' to vmcoreinfo in core kernel code (all archs)

This patchset primarily fixes the regression reported in user-space
utilities like 'makedumpfile' and 'crash-utility' on arm64 architecture
with the availability of 52-bit address space feature in underlying
kernel. These regressions have been reported both on CPUs which don't
support ARMv8.2 extensions (i.e. LVA, LPA) and are running newer kernels
and also on prototype platforms (like ARMv8 FVP simulator model) which
support ARMv8.2 extensions and are running newer kernels.

The reason for these regressions is that right now user-space tools
have no direct access to these values (since these are not exported
from the kernel) and hence need to rely on a best-guess method of
determining value of 'vabits_actual' and 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' supported
by underlying kernel.

Exporting these values via vmcoreinfo will help user-land in such cases.
In addition, as per suggestion from makedumpfile maintainer (Kazu),
it makes more sense to append 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' to
vmcoreinfo in the core code itself rather than in arm64 arch-specific
code, so that the user-space code for other archs can also benefit from
this addition to the vmcoreinfo and use it as a standard way of
determining 'SECTIONS_SHIFT' value in user-land.

* [PATCH v6 1/2] crash_core, vmcoreinfo: Append 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' to vmcoreinfo

Right now user-space tools like 'makedumpfile' and 'crash' need to rely
on a best-guess method of determining value of 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS'
supported by underlying kernel.

This value is used in user-space code to calculate the bit-space
required to store a section for SPARESMEM (similar to the existing
calculation method used in the kernel implementation):

  #define SECTIONS_SHIFT    (MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS - SECTION_SIZE_BITS)

Now, regressions have been reported in user-space utilities
like 'makedumpfile' and 'crash' on arm64, with the recently added
kernel support for 52-bit physical address space, as there is
no clear method of determining this value in user-space
(other than reading kernel CONFIG flags).

As per suggestion from makedumpfile maintainer (Kazu), it makes more
sense to append 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' to vmcoreinfo in the core code itself
rather than in arch-specific code, so that the user-space code for other
archs can also benefit from this addition to the vmcoreinfo and use it
as a standard way of determining 'SECTIONS_SHIFT' value in user-land.

A reference 'makedumpfile' implementation which reads the
'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' value from vmcoreinfo in a arch-independent fashion

* [PATCH v6 1/2] crash_core, vmcoreinfo: Append 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' to vmcoreinfo

Right now user-space tools like 'makedumpfile' and 'crash' need to rely
on a best-guess method of determining value of 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS'
supported by underlying kernel.

This value is used in user-space code to calculate the bit-space
required to store a section for SPARESMEM (similar to the existing
calculation method used in the kernel implementation):

  #define SECTIONS_SHIFT    (MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS - SECTION_SIZE_BITS)

Now, regressions have been reported in user-space utilities
like 'makedumpfile' and 'crash' on arm64, with the recently added
kernel support for 52-bit physical address space, as there is
no clear method of determining this value in user-space
(other than reading kernel CONFIG flags).

As per suggestion from makedumpfile maintainer (Kazu), it makes more
sense to append 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' to vmcoreinfo in the core code itself
rather than in arch-specific code, so that the user-space code for other
archs can also benefit from this addition to the vmcoreinfo and use it
as a standard way of determining 'SECTIONS_SHIFT' value in user-land.

A reference 'makedumpfile' implementation which reads the
'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' value from vmcoreinfo in a arch-independent fashion
is available here:

While at it also update vmcoreinfo documentation for 'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS'
variable being added to vmcoreinfo.

'MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS' defines the maximum supported physical address
space memory.

* [PATCH v6 2/2] arm64/crash_core: Export TCR_EL1.T1SZ in vmcoreinfo

vabits_actual variable on arm64 indicates the actual VA space size,
and allows a single binary to support both 48-bit and 52-bit VA
spaces.

If the ARMv8.2-LVA optional feature is present, and we are running
with a 64KB page size; then it is possible to use 52-bits of address
space for both userspace and kernel addresses. However, any kernel
binary that supports 52-bit must also be able to fall back to 48-bit
at early boot time if the hardware feature is not present.

Since TCR_EL1.T1SZ indicates the size offset of the memory region
addressed by TTBR1_EL1 (and hence can be used for determining the
vabits_actual value) it makes more sense to export the same in
vmcoreinfo rather than vabits_actual variable, as the name of the
variable can change in future kernel versions, but the architectural
constructs like TCR_EL1.T1SZ can be used better to indicate intended
specific fields to user-space.

User-space utilities like makedumpfile and crash-utility, need to
read this value from vmcoreinfo for determining if a virtual
address lies in the linear map range.

While at it also add documentation for TCR_EL1.T1SZ variable being
added to vmcoreinfo.

* [PATCH v6 2/2] arm64/crash_core: Export TCR_EL1.T1SZ in vmcoreinfo

vabits_actual variable on arm64 indicates the actual VA space size,
and allows a single binary to support both 48-bit and 52-bit VA
spaces.

If the ARMv8.2-LVA optional feature is present, and we are running
with a 64KB page size; then it is possible to use 52-bits of address
space for both userspace and kernel addresses. However, any kernel
binary that supports 52-bit must also be able to fall back to 48-bit
at early boot time if the hardware feature is not present.

Since TCR_EL1.T1SZ indicates the size offset of the memory region
addressed by TTBR1_EL1 (and hence can be used for determining the
vabits_actual value) it makes more sense to export the same in
vmcoreinfo rather than vabits_actual variable, as the name of the
variable can change in future kernel versions, but the architectural
constructs like TCR_EL1.T1SZ can be used better to indicate intended
specific fields to user-space.

User-space utilities like makedumpfile and crash-utility, need to
read this value from vmcoreinfo for determining if a virtual
address lies in the linear map range.

While at it also add documentation for TCR_EL1.T1SZ variable being
added to vmcoreinfo.

It indicates the size offset of the memory region addressed by TTBR1_EL1

I tested this patch on top of upstream kernel v5.7 and I am getting "crash: cannot determine VA_BITS_ACTUAL" error with crash tool.
I looked into crash-utility source and it is expecting tcr_el1_t1sz not TCR_EL1_T1SZ.
Could you please check.

I tested this patch on top of upstream kernel v5.7 and I am getting "crash: cannot determine VA_BITS_ACTUAL" error with crash tool.
I looked into crash-utility source and it is expecting tcr_el1_t1sz not TCR_EL1_T1SZ.
Could you please check.

Indeed. As per James comments on the v5 (see [1]) where he suggested
converting ttcr_el1_t1sz into TCR_EL1_T1SZ, I made the change in v6
accordingly.

This time I haven't sent out the v6 userspace changes
(makedumpfile/crash-utility) upstream first, since we are waiting for
kernel changes to be accepted first, as we have seen in the past that
while the userspace patches have been accepted, the kernel patches
required a respin cycle, thus leading to inconsistencies, as you also
pointed out with crash-utility.

If you want, for your local testing, I can share my github branch
where I have kept the crash-utility v6 patchset ready. Please let me
know.

Thanks,

Indeed. As per James comments on the v5 (see [1]) where he suggested
converting ttcr_el1_t1sz into TCR_EL1_T1SZ, I made the change in v6
accordingly.

This time I haven't sent out the v6 userspace changes
(makedumpfile/crash-utility) upstream first, since we are waiting for
kernel changes to be accepted first, as we have seen in the past that
while the userspace patches have been accepted, the kernel patches
required a respin cycle, thus leading to inconsistencies, as you also
pointed out with crash-utility.

If you want, for your local testing, I can share my github branch
where I have kept the crash-utility v6 patchset ready. Please let me
know.

Indeed. As per James comments on the v5 (see [1]) where he suggested
converting ttcr_el1_t1sz into TCR_EL1_T1SZ, I made the change in v6
accordingly.

This time I haven't sent out the v6 userspace changes
(makedumpfile/crash-utility) upstream first, since we are waiting for
kernel changes to be accepted first, as we have seen in the past that
while the userspace patches have been accepted, the kernel patches
required a respin cycle, thus leading to inconsistencies, as you also
pointed out with crash-utility.

If you want, for your local testing, I can share my github branch
where I have kept the crash-utility v6 patchset ready. Please let me
know.

Thanks for clarifying.
I made userspace changes accordingly and tested and it works fine. We will be wait for your userspace patch.

Yes, and that';s the right way to do it. Userspace can't rely on the
stability of a kernel interface if it's no in the upstream kernel!

So doing with the ALL CAPS names is the right thing to do.

Ping. I think we have two Tested-by available from Oracle and Marvell
folks on this patchset and no further review-comments.
Can you please help review/pick this patchset via the arm64 tree?

User-space utilities like makedumpfile and crash have been broken
since 52-bit VA addressing was enabled on arm64 kernel, so distros are
obliged to carry downstream-only fixes for these user-space utilities
to make them work with the kernel which support 52-bit VA addressing
on arm64.

Thanks,
Bhupesh

I tested this for both 48 and 52 VA. The dump log looks fine with the 
crash tool link provided by you so,

I'd prefer the commit message not to refer to this 'vabits_actual' thing at all. By the
time a git-archaeologist comes to read this, it may be long gone.

Ideally this would refer to: TCR_EL1.TxSZ, which controls the VA space size,
and can be configured by a single kernel image to support either 48-bit or 52-bit VA space.

(I think second guessing the kernel memory map is a sisyphean effort), but this register
isn't going to disappear, or change its meaning!:

You may need to re-post this to get the maintainer's attention as its normally safe to
assume patches posted before rc1 no longer apply. (in this case, this one does)

(I think second guessing the kernel memory map is a sisyphean effort), but this register
isn't going to disappear, or change its meaning!:

You may need to re-post this to get the maintainer's attention as its normally safe to
assume patches posted before rc1 no longer apply. (in this case, this one does)

I'd prefer the commit message not to refer to this 'vabits_actual' thing at all. By the
time a git-archaeologist comes to read this, it may be long gone.

Ideally this would refer to: TCR_EL1.TxSZ, which controls the VA space size,
and can be configured by a single kernel image to support either 48-bit or 52-bit VA space.

I can queue this patch via the arm64 tree (together with the second one)
but I'd like an ack from the kernel/crash_core.c maintainers. They don't
seem to have been cc'ed either (only the kexec list).

Thanks.

For the VMCOREINFO part, I'm fine with the changes, but since I do not
understand the arm64 pieces so I would like to leave to arm64 people to
review.  If arm64 bits are good enough, feel free to add:
