I tried to reproduce Andrii's bug both before and after the bprintf
rewrite but I think he meant before.

You're right, that is a bug, I missed that buf was static and thought
it was just on the stack. That snprintf call should be after the
raw_spin_lock_irqsave. I'll send a patch. Thank you Rasmus. (before my
snprintf series, there was a vsprintf after the raw_spin_lock_irqsave)

I think it's a separate issue from what Andrii reported though because
the flaky test exercises the bpf_snprintf helper and this buf spinlock
bug you just found only affects the bpf_trace_printk helper.

That being said, it does smell a little bit like a concurrency issue
too, indeed. The bpf_snprintf test program is a raw_tp/sys_enter so it
attaches to all syscall entries and most likely gets executed many
more times than necessary and probably on parallel CPUs. The "pad_out"
buffer they write to is unique and not locked so maybe the test's
userspace reads pad_out while another CPU is writing on it and if the
string output goes through a stage where it is "    4 0000" before
being "    4 000", we might read at the wrong time. That being said, I
would find it weird that this happens as much as 50% of the time and
always specifically on that test case.

Andrii could you maybe try changing the prog type to
"tp/syscalls/sys_enter_nanosleep" on the machine where you can
reproduce this bug ?
