Subject: [RFC 0/2] btf_encoder: Detect kernel modules
Date: Tue, 24 Nov 2020 17:19:17 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201124161919.2152187-1-jolsa@kernel.org> (raw)

adding support to detect kernel module and use its
mcount_loc section data as function filter.

It's working on my setup, but I fear there might be
kernel configuration where it could fail.

I'm mostly worried about the assumption that there's
always relocation section '.rela__mcount_loc' for
'__mcount_loc' section in kernel modules.

And because the relocation changes addresses, we need
to be sure we compare relative or relocated addresses.

I still need to double check scripts/recordmcount.c
to be sure about that. 

Any testing feedback would be great.
