Subject: [PATCH] perf-probe: dso: Add symbols in .text.* subsections to text symbol map in kenrel modules
Date: Tue, 23 Feb 2021 16:37:52 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <161406587251.969784.5469149622544499077.stgit@devnote2> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210223000508.cab3cddaa3a3790525f49247@kernel.org>

The kernel modules have .text.* subsections such as .text.unlikely.
Since dso__process_kernel_symbol() only identify the symbols in the ".text"
section as the text symbols and inserts it in the default dso in the map,
the symbols in such subsections can not be found by map__find_symbol().

This adds the symbols in those subsections to the default dso in the map so
that map__find_symbol() can find them. This solves the perf-probe issue on
probing online module.

Without this fix, probing on a symbol in .text.unlikely fails.
  ----
  # perf probe -m nf_conntrack nf_l4proto_log_invalid
  Probe point 'nf_l4proto_log_invalid' not found.
    Error: Failed to add events.
  ----

With this fix, it works because map__find_symbol() can find the symbol
correctly.
  ----
  # perf probe -m nf_conntrack nf_l4proto_log_invalid
  Added new event:
    probe:nf_l4proto_log_invalid (on nf_l4proto_log_invalid in nf_conntrack)

  You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

  	perf record -e probe:nf_l4proto_log_invalid -aR sleep 1
