Subject: [patch 1/2] x86, ptrace: support for branch trace store(BTS)
Date: Thu, 29 Nov 2007 08:14:13 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <029E5BE7F699594398CA44E3DDF5544401024076@swsmsx413.ger.corp.intel.com> (raw)

Changes to previous version(s):
- moved task arrives/departs notifications to __switch_to_xtra()
- added _TIF_BTS_TRACE and _TIF_BTS_TRACE_TS to _TIF_WORK_CTXSW_*
- split _TIF_WORK_CTXSW into ~_PREV and ~_NEXT for x86_64
- ptrace_bts_init_intel() function called from init_intel()
- removed PTRACE_BTS_INIT ptrace command
- cache DEBUGCTRL MSR
- replace struct declarations and operations struct with
  configuration struct defining offset/size pairs and
  generic operations
- added a patch for the ptrace.2 man page for discussing the API
  in this forum

+ * Debug Store (DS) save area configurations for various processor
+ * variants.
+ * (see Intel64 and IA32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual,
+ *  section 18.5)
+ *
+ * The DS configurations consist of the following fields; they vary in
+ * the size of those fields.
+ * - double-word aligned base linear address of the BTS buffer
+ * - write pointer into the BTS buffer
+ * - end linear address of the BTS buffer (one byte beyond the end of
+ *   the buffer)
+ * - interrupt pointer into BTS buffer
+ *   (interrupt occurs when write pointer passes interrupt pointer)
+ * - double-word aligned base linear address of the PEBS buffer
+ * - write pointer into the PEBS buffer
+ * - end linear address of the PEBS buffer (one byte beyond the end of
+ *   the buffer)
+ * - interrupt pointer into PEBS buffer
+ *   (interrupt occurs when write pointer passes interrupt pointer)
+ * - value to which counter is reset following counter overflow
+ *
+ * On later architectures, the last branch recording hardware uses
+ * 64bit pointers even in 32bit mode.
+ *
+ *
+ * Branch Trace Store (BTS) records store information about control
+ * flow changes. They at least provide the following information:
+ * - source linear address
+ * - destination linear address
+ *
+ *
+ * In order to abstract from the actual DS and BTS layout, we describe
+ * the access to the relevant fields.
+ * Thanks to Andi Kleen for proposing this design.
+ *
+ * The implementation, however, is not as general as it might seem. In
+ * order to stay somewhat simple and efficient, we assume an
+ * underlying unsigned type and we expect the field to be at least as
+ * big as that type.
