Subject: [RFC PATCH v4 2/2] arm64: Create a list of SYM_CODE functions, blacklist them in the unwinder
Date: Sat, 15 May 2021 23:00:18 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210516040018.128105-3-madvenka@linux.microsoft.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210516040018.128105-1-madvenka@linux.microsoft.com>

From: "Madhavan T. Venkataraman" <madvenka@linux.microsoft.com>

The unwinder should check if the return PC falls in any function that
is considered unreliable from an unwinding perspective. If it does,
mark the stack trace unreliable.

Function types
==============

The compiler generates code for C functions and assigns the type STT_FUNC
to them.

Assembly functions are manually assigned a type:

	- STT_FUNC for functions defined with SYM_FUNC*() macros

	- STT_NONE for functions defined with SYM_CODE*() macros

In the future, STT_FUNC functions will be analyzed by objtool and "fixed"
as necessary. So, they are not "interesting" to the reliable unwinder in
the kernel.

That leaves SYM_CODE*() functions. These contain low-level code that is
difficult or impossible for objtool to analyze. So, objtool ignores them
leaving them to the reliable unwinder. These functions must be blacklisted
for unwinding in some way.

Blacklisting functions
======================

Define a SYM_CODE_END() macro for arm64 that adds the function address
range to a new section called "sym_code_functions".

Linker file
===========

Include the "sym_code_functions" section under initdata in vmlinux.lds.S.

Initialization
==============

Define an early_initcall() to copy the function address ranges from the
"sym_code_functions" section to an array by the same name.

Unwinder check
==============

Define a function called unwinder_blacklisted() that compares a return
PC with sym_code_functions[]. If there is a match, then mark the stack trace
as unreliable. Call unwinder_blacklisted() from unwind_frame().
