Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] scripts/link-vmlinux.sh: Add alias to duplicate symbols for kallsyms
Date: Fri, 21 Jul 2023 09:21:27 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20230721092127.1931028-1-alessandro.carminati@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20230718125523.2fc05491@gandalf.local.home>

Hello Steven, Alexander, and Nick,

Since now I realize that a lot of people are working on my very same argument,
I'm writing you this mail just with the intent of not leaving my statements
floating in the air, and help the cause by sharing my experience, as little it
is, to solve this problem.

The addr2line strategy, I tried to implement, allows me to achieve the level
of accuracy that Luis mentioned in his comment about live-patching suggestions.
The addr2line-based approach is feasible, however, to make this approach
operable, I had to ensure that vmlinux contains the necessary debug
information.
Let me clarify.
During the kernel build, I do need the vmlinux to contain debug information.
The approach I pursued parses the nm output and, when it detects a duplicate
symbol, it needs to query vmlinux using addr2line to resolve the address
where the symbol is reported to be.
The whole process takes place during the building phase.
I've completed the work to integrate the new alias within the compilation
phase, and I wanted to share with you how it looks now.

```
~ # uname -a
Linux (none) 6.4.0 #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jul 20 10:05:36 UTC 2023 aarch64 GNU/Linux
~ # cat /proc/kallsyms | grep gic_mask_irq
ffffacf2eb64dae4 t gic_mask_irq
ffffacf2eb64dae4 t gic_mask_irq@_drivers_irqchip_irq-gic_c_167
ffffacf2eb650960 t gic_mask_irq
ffffacf2eb650960 t gic_mask_irq@_drivers_irqchip_irq-gic-v3_c_404
~ #
```

Despite this appearing to have a sufficient level of accuracy, when I tested
it, I realized something I really did not expect. Multiple instances of the
same function exist, and when I say "same function," I don't just mean the
name, but also the function's body. I apologize for stating something that
may sound obvious to you, but I found this really unexpected.

```

The previous evidence demonstrates that adding a tag with a file and line
number does not make a symbol unique.

Here, I inspect the function body to verify if the functions are indeed
the same.

```

While I can speculate on a reasonable explanation for why I see symbols coming
from header files being duplicated – when a header file is included in a C
file and it produces a function that the compiler does not want to inline, it
is replicated every time the file is included – I have no convincing
explanation as to why the fs/binfmt.c functions exist in more than one
instance.

As a final note, please understand that my patch was not intended to undermine
anyone's work. I simply encountered a problem that I wanted to help solve.
Attached to this message is my code, in case anyone wants to replicate it.
I would appreciate being kept in the loop, as I genuinely want to assist in
fixing this problem.

+	help
+	  It is not uncommon for drivers or modules related to similar

+	  While this is not a problem for the kernel's binary itself, it
+	  becomes an issue when attempting to trace or probe specific

+
+	  This option addresses this challenge by extending the symbol names
+	  with unique suffixes during the kernel build process.
+	  The newly created aliases for these duplicated symbols are unique
+	  names that can be fed to the ftrace sysfs interface. By doing so, it
+	  enables previously unreachable symbols to be probed.

+	  Sometimes it can be useful to refer to data. In live patch scenarios,

+	  significantly increase the size.
