Subject: [PATCH 1/2] kernel/kcov.c: mark funcs in __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc as notrace
Date: Wed, 28 Nov 2018 09:12:39 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Since __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc is marked as notrace, function calls in
__sanitizer_cov_trace_pc shouldn't be traced either. The function
ftrace_graph_caller() gets called for each function that isn't marked
'notrace', like canonicalize_ip(). This is the call trace from a run:

[  139.644550]  ftrace_graph_caller+0x1c/0x24
[  139.648352]  canonicalize_ip+0x18/0x28
[  139.652313]  __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc+0x14/0x58
[  139.656184]  sched_clock+0x34/0x1e8
[  139.659759]  trace_clock_local+0x40/0x88
[  139.663722]  ftrace_push_return_trace+0x8c/0x1f0
[  139.667767]  prepare_ftrace_return+0xa8/0x100
[  139.671709]  ftrace_graph_caller+0x1c/0x24

Rework so that the functions check_kcov_mode and canonicalize_ip that is
callef from __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc also is marked as notrace.
