  To: Linus Torvalds; +Cc: linux-kernel

There was a small bug in the core dump changes in the patch I posted.  
I have fixed that.  The rest of the patch is unchanged.  AFAICT, people
like the idea, and this patch works well for me.  Can it go in?


Thanks,
Roland

You lost the save/restore notes for ebp.

Well, yes, but not because of this per-se.  The unwind info
for sigreturn will be quite complex because it should expose
the state of the machine after the return.  I.e. it would 
replace the rather complex code in both gdb and libgcc that
fakes some knowledge of the signal stack frame.

I can try to write it for you if you like.

* [PATCH] fix vsyscall unwind information

  To: Roland McGrath, Linus Torvalds, linux-kernel

Re-adds the %ebp save/restore correction I'd given Uli when the 
unwind information went into sysenter.c, which somehow got lost
with Roland's reorg.

Also adds unwind info for the sigreturn entry points.  This can
be used instead of special-case hacks currently in libgcc and 
gdb, and by extension allows the kernel to change these entry
points without breaking userland.

Tested with Roland's patch to make the VDSO available in glibc,
plus a set of fixes to libgcc, since location expressions hadn't
ever been tested before in this context.

Linus, please pull from

Exactly.  This means we can get rid of the int $0x80.  I.e., move the
sigreturn code in the two .S files for sysenter and int80.  Reducing the
cost of signals is always good.

I'm not sure how this use of sigreturn has to look like.  Linus, maybe
you should do it yourself.
