Subject: [RFC PATCH v7 4/4] arm64: Create a list of SYM_CODE functions, check return PC against list
Date: Thu, 12 Aug 2021 13:35:58 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210812183559.22693-5-madvenka@linux.microsoft.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210812183559.22693-1-madvenka@linux.microsoft.com>

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

SYM_CODE functions don't follow the usual calling conventions. Check if the
return PC in a stack frame falls in any of these. If it does, consider the
stack trace unreliable.

Define a special section for unreliable 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 read-only data in
vmlinux.lds.S.

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

Define an early_initcall() to create a sym_code_functions[] array from
the linker data.

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

Add a reliability check in unwind_is_reliable() that compares a return
PC with sym_code_functions[]. If there is a match, then return failure.
