Subject: [PATCH 4.19 03/24] fgraph: Initialize tracing_graph_pause at task creation
Date: Thu, 11 Feb 2021 16:02:37 +0100
Message-ID: <20210211150147.902688534@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210211150147.743660073@linuxfoundation.org>

From: Steven Rostedt (VMware) <rostedt@goodmis.org>

commit 7e0a9220467dbcfdc5bc62825724f3e52e50ab31 upstream.

On some archs, the idle task can call into cpu_suspend(). The cpu_suspend()
will disable or pause function graph tracing, as there's some paths in
bringing down the CPU that can have issues with its return address being
modified. The task_struct structure has a "tracing_graph_pause" atomic
counter, that when set to something other than zero, the function graph
tracer will not modify the return address.

The problem is that the tracing_graph_pause counter is initialized when the
function graph tracer is enabled. This can corrupt the counter for the idle
task if it is suspended in these architectures.

   CPU 1				CPU 2
   -----				-----
  do_idle()
    cpu_suspend()
      pause_graph_tracing()
          task_struct->tracing_graph_pause++ (0 -> 1)

				start_graph_tracing()
				  for_each_online_cpu(cpu) {
				    ftrace_graph_init_idle_task(cpu)
				      task-struct->tracing_graph_pause = 0 (1 -> 0)

      unpause_graph_tracing()
          task_struct->tracing_graph_pause-- (0 -> -1)

The above should have gone from 1 to zero, and enabled function graph
tracing again. But instead, it is set to -1, which keeps it disabled.

There's no reason that the field tracing_graph_pause on the task_struct can
not be initialized at boot up.
