Subject: [RFC PATCH v1 1/1] arm64: Unwinder enhancements for reliable stack trace
Date: Tue, 23 Feb 2021 12:12:43 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210223181243.6776-2-madvenka@linux.microsoft.com> (raw)

Unwinder changes
================

	Termination
	===========

	Currently, the unwinder terminates when both the FP (frame pointer)
	and the PC (return address) of a frame are 0. But a frame could get
	corrupted and zeroed. There needs to be a better check.

	The following special terminating frame and function have been
	defined for this purpose:

	const u64    arm64_last_frame[2] __attribute__ ((aligned (16)));

	void arm64_last_func(void)
	{
	}

	So, set the FP to arm64_last_frame and the PC to arm64_last_func in
	the bottom most frame.

	Exception/Interrupt detection
	=============================

	An EL1 exception renders the stack trace unreliable as it can happen
	anywhere including the frame pointer prolog and epilog. The
	unwinder needs to be able to detect the exception on the stack.

	Currently, the EL1 exception handler sets up pt_regs on the stack
	and chains pt_regs->stackframe with the other frames on the stack.
	But, the unwinder does not know where this exception frame is in
	the stack trace.

	Set the LSB of the exception frame FP to allow the unwinder to
	detect the exception frame. When the unwinder detects the frame,
	it needs to make sure that it is really an exception frame and
	not the result of any stack corruption.

	It can do this if the FP and PC are also recorded elsewhere in the
	pt_regs for comparison. Currently, the FP is also stored in
	regs->regs[29]. The PC is stored in regs->pc. However, regs->pc can
	be changed by lower level functions.

	Create a new field, pt_regs->orig_pc, and record the return address
	PC there. With this, the unwinder can validate the exception frame
	and set a flag so that the caller of the unwinder can know when
	an exception frame is encountered.

	Unwinder return value
	=====================

	Currently, the unwinder returns -EINVAL for stack trace termination
	as well as stack trace error. Return -ENOENT for stack trace
	termination and -EINVAL for error to disambiguate. This idea has
	been borrowed from Mark Brown.

Reliable stack trace function
=============================

Implement arch_stack_walk_reliable(). This function walks the stack like
the existing stack trace functions with a couple of additional checks:

	Return address check
	--------------------

	For each frame, check the return address to see if it is a
	proper kernel text address. If not, return -EINVAL.

	Exception frame check
	---------------------

	Check each frame to see if it is an EL1 exception frame. If it is,
	return -EINVAL.
