Subject: [PATCH v9 10/11] arm64: Introduce stack trace reliability checks in the unwinder
Date: Thu, 14 Oct 2021 21:34:04 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20211015023413.16614-3-madvenka@linux.microsoft.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20211015023413.16614-1-madvenka@linux.microsoft.com>

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

There are some kernel features and conditions that make a stack trace
unreliable. Callers may require the unwinder to detect these cases.
E.g., livepatch.

Introduce a new function called unwind_check_reliability() that will
detect these cases and set a flag in the stack frame. Call
unwind_check_reliability() for every frame, that is, in unwind_start()
and unwind_next().

Introduce the first reliability check in unwind_check_reliability() - If
a return PC is not a valid kernel text address, consider the stack
trace unreliable. It could be some generated code. Other reliability checks
will be added in the future.

Let unwind() return a boolean to indicate if the stack trace is
reliable.

Introduce arch_stack_walk_reliable() for ARM64. This works like
arch_stack_walk() except that it returns -EINVAL if the stack trace is not
reliable.

Until all the reliability checks are in place, arch_stack_walk_reliable()
may not be used by livepatch. But it may be used by debug and test code.
