Subject: [PATCH -resend 1/1] dumpstack: fix printk_address for direct addresses
Date: Fri, 25 Oct 2013 15:06:58 +0200
Message-ID: <1382706418-8435-1-git-send-email-jslaby@suse.cz> (raw)

Consider modules like this:
static int my_init(void)
{
  char *map = (void *)0x5;
  *map = 3;
  return 0;
}
module_init(my_init);

When we turn off FRAME_POINTERs, the very first instruction in that
function causes a BUG. The problem is that we print IP in the BUG
report using %pB (from printk_address). And %pB decrements the pointer
by one to fix printing addresses of functions with tail calls. This
was added in commit 71f9e59800e5ad4e6b683348424c9fe54306cd43 (x86,
dumpstack: Use %pB format specifier for stack trace) to fix the call
stack printouts.

So instead of correct output:
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000005
IP: [<ffffffffa01ac000>] my_init+0x0/0x10 [pb173]

We get:
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000005
IP: [<ffffffffa0152000>] 0xffffffffa0151fff

To fix that, we use %pS only for stack addresses printouts (via newly
added printk_stack_address) and %pB for regs->ip (via printk_address).
I.e. we revert to the old behaviour for all except call stacks. And
since from all those reliable is 1, we remove that parameter from
printk_address.

I sent this patch 2 weeks ago. Only Joe commented that the prints
should be done inline instead. But I don't agree as prining the output
from one point is better IMHO.

So after discussing what to do with this patch with Ingo, I am
re-sending. 

Opinions?
