Subject: [PATCH v2 18/19] arm64: entry: don't instrument entry code with KCOV
Date: Wed, 19 May 2021 13:39:01 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210519123902.2452-19-mark.rutland@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210519123902.2452-1-mark.rutland@arm.com>

The code in entry-common.c runs at exception entry and return
boundaries, where portions of the kernel environment aren't available.
For example, RCU may not be watching, and lockdep state may be
out-of-sync with the hardware. Due to this, it is not sound to
instrument this code.

We generally avoid instrumentation by marking the entry functions as
`noinstr`, but currently this doesn't inhibit KCOV instrumentation.
Prevent this by disabling KCOV for the entire compilation unit.
