Add ARCH_HAS_KCOV to ARM64 config. To avoid crashes, disable
instrumentation of the following files:

arch/arm64/boot/*
arch/arm64/kvm/hyp/*

Following the previous patch discussion, I have dropped the delay.c
exception, which isn't strictly required for kcov to function.
We can decide what to do with it later.
Instead I've added rules to avoid instrumentation of arch/arm64/boot
and arch/arm64/kvm

We have no code under our boot directory, so I don't think the changes
to arch/arm64/boot are necessary.

This looks sane to me.

With VHE this code _may_ run in the same memory map as the kernel, but
it's not something we can determine at compile time.

Otherwise, I believe that the rest of the C code under arch/arm64 runs
in the usual kernel memory map (including the special case of kaslr.c),
and the EFI stub code has already been covered, so I'm not immediately
aware of anything else that needs to be special-cased.

I built and booted (via EFI) a kernel with this feature enabled (also
with the boot/Makefile change removed). I haven't tested the feature
itself as such, as I'm not sure how to do that.

FWIW, with the boot/Makefile change removed, feel free to add:

Mark.

You can test it by running the test program from Documentation/kcov.txt.

Thank you!
I'll wait till tomorrow for others to comment, and then will send the
updated version.

Ah, I hadn't spotted that. If I get the chance I'll try to give that a
go.

I just had a go (with this applied atop of v4.7-rc3), and I get:

root@ribbensteg:/home/nanook# ./kcov 
mmap: No such device

The device exists (it was able to open the fd, evidently):

root@ribbensteg:/home/nanook# ls -al /sys/kernel/debug/kcov 
-rw------- 1 root root 0 Jan  1  1970 /sys/kernel/debug/kcov

Strace show me:

openat(AT_FDCWD, "/sys/kernel/debug/kcov", O_RDWR) = 3
ioctl(3, CHIOMOVE or CM_IOCGATR, 0x10000) = 0
mmap(NULL, 524288, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, 3, 0) = -1 ENODEV (No such device)

It doesn't look like the error paths in kcov_mmap are hitting.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mark.

According to Dmitry (thanks, Dmitry!) this has regressed recently, but
there's a pending patch that should probably fix the problem:

Thanks for the pointer! With that applied, the program runs.

However, it looks like I missed a warning from the kernel build system, 
and my toolchain doesn't actually support -fsanitize-coverage=trace-pc,
so I'm not going to be able to test that further.

It would be great if we could deliberately not register the debugfs file
when there was no compiler support for the feature, for those like me
who miss the build time warning. We do something like that for the LSE
atomics on arm64.

Thanks,
Mark.

Hi Mark,

It's a common problem and it would be great to detect this.
But I think it's better to return ENOTSUP from open rather than not
registering the file at all. This way higher level tools will be able
to more easily diagnose the issue and properly report to user. A
missing file looks like not mounted debugfs (which another common
issue).

I am not sure how to do it.
Compiler does not provide any define for this option. And I am not
familiar enough with kernel makefiles. Would it be possible to add a
define to CLAGS in the makefile along with printing the warning?

I have no strong feeling either way, so long as we don't silently carry
on in a case that makes no sense.

If you follow the arm64 LSE example, you can do something like the
below.

Note that this relies on CFLAGS_KCOV being cleared when not supported by
the toolchain. I used ENOTSUPP rather than ENOTSUP as there's no
standard definition for the later in the Linux headers.

I dusted off a compiler that supports this, and ran the sample program under
Documentation with the above unproxify patch.

I think it's time to ask now :)
If I receive "Tested-by" or "Acked-by" responses, do I need to send
out a patch adding them, or should I rely on the maintainer taking the
patch to the tree?
The first option reduces the amount of work done by the maintainer,
while the second one reduces the traffic in the list.
Sorry, I couldn't find the answer in the manuals.

Thank you,
Alex

It's up to the maintainer, so it varies. The best thing to do is to ask
the maintainer what they'd prefer.

I usually cherry-pick tags that I see in reply to the *latest* version
of the patch (I have a rudimentary script to do this).

I noticed that there was an ack on v1 form Marc Z that's missing in v2.
Maybe it no longer applies, I can't tell, but I usually expect
subsequent versions of a patch to include all the previously given acks
(of course, if they still apply, sometimes a patch rewrite means
dropping those tags).

I believe Marc's reply [1] was to v3 [2], it's just that the version was
missing form the subject, and discussions continued on v2 in the mean
time.

I guess the simplest thing to do is for Alexander to send a v4 with the
tags accumulated, assuming James's Tested-by is applicable to v3 with
the boot/Makefile hunk removed. James?

My ack stands.

Thanks,
Mark.

Yes, this is correct.

I think it's safe to assume James's Tested-by is still valid, as
boot/Makefile hunk did virtually nothing.
I'll send the new patch version now.

OK, thanks for clarification. I thought the one with most replies was
the latest ;).
