* lib/bug.c: add oops end marker to WARN implementationAnton Blanchard2010-08-111-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | We are missing the oops end marker for the exception based WARN implementation in lib/bug.c. This is useful for logfile analysis tools.

* panic: keep blinking in spite of long spin timer modeTAMUKI Shoichi2010-08-111-32/+26
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To keep panic_timeout accuracy when running under a hypervisor, the current implementation only spins on long time (1 second) calls to mdelay. That brings a good effect, but the problem is the keyboard LEDs don't blink at all on that situation. This patch changes to call to panic_blink_enter() between every mdelay and keeps blinking in spite of long spin timer mode. The time to call to mdelay is now 100ms. Even this change will keep panic_timeout accuracy enough when running under a hypervisor.

* panic: call console_verbose() in panicAnton Blanchard2010-05-271-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Most distros turn the console verbosity down and that means a backtrace after a panic never makes it to the console. I assume we haven't seen this because a panic is often preceeded by an oops which will have called console_verbose. There are however a lot of places we call panic directly, and they are broken. Use console_verbose like we do in the oops path to ensure a directly called panic will print a backtrace.

* panic: Allow warnings to set different taint flagsBen Hutchings2010-05-191-4/+20
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | WARN() is used in some places to report firmware or hardware bugs that are then worked-around. These bugs do not affect the stability of the kernel and should not set the flag for TAINT_WARN. To allow for this, add WARN_TAINT() and WARN_TAINT_ONCE() macros that take a taint number as argument. Architectures that implement warnings using trap instructions instead of calls to warn_slowpath_*() now implement __WARN_TAINT(taint) instead of __WARN().

* panic: fix panic_timeout accuracy when running on a hypervisorAnton Blanchard2010-03-061-16/+30
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | I've had some complaints about panic_timeout being wildly innacurate on shared processor PowerPC partitions (a 3 minute panic_timeout taking 30 minutes). The problem is we loop on mdelay(1) and with a 1ms in 10ms hypervisor timeslice each of these will take 10ms (ie 10x) longer. I expect other platforms with shared processor hypervisors will see the same issue. This patch keeps the old behaviour if we have a panic_blink (only keyboard LEDs right now) and does 1 second mdelays if we don't.

* kmsg_dump: Dump on crash_kexec as wellKOSAKI Motohiro2009-12-311-1/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | crash_kexec gets called before kmsg_dump(KMSG_DUMP_OOPS) if panic_on_oops is set, so the kernel log buffer is not stored for this case. This patch adds a KMSG_DUMP_KEXEC dump type which gets called when crash_kexec() is invoked. To avoid getting double dumps, the old KMSG_DUMP_PANIC is moved below crash_kexec(). The mtdoops driver is modified to handle KMSG_DUMP_KEXEC in the same way as a panic.

| * core: Add kernel message dumper to call on oopses and panicsSimon Kagstrom2009-11-301-0/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The core functionality is implemented as per Linus suggestion from http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-mtd/2009-October/027620.html (with the kmsg_dump implementation by Linus). A struct kmsg_dumper has been added which contains a callback to dump the kernel log buffers on crashes. The kmsg_dump function gets called from oops_exit() and panic() and invokes this callbacks with the crash reason.

* Fix caller information for warn_slowpath_nullLinus Torvalds2009-05-161-15/+20
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Ian Campbell noticed that since "Eliminate thousands of warnings with gcc 3.2 build" (commit 57adc4d2dbf968fdbe516359688094eef4d46581) all WARN_ON()'s currently appear to come from warn_slowpath_null(), eg: WARNING: at kernel/softirq.c:143 warn_slowpath_null+0x1c/0x20() because now that warn_slowpath_null() is in the call path, the __builtin_return_address(0) returns that, rather than the place that caused the warning. Fix this by splitting up the warn_slowpath_null/fmt cases differently, using a common helper function, and getting the return address in the right place. This also happens to avoid the unnecessary stack usage for the non-stdargs case, and just generally cleans things up. Make the function name printout use %pS while at it.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Impact: broaden lockdep checks Lockdep is disabled after any kernel taints. This might be convenient to ignore bad locking issues which sources come from outside the kernel tree. Nevertheless, it might be a frustrating experience for the staging developers or those who experience a warning but are focused on another things that require lockdep. The v2 of this patch simply don't disable anymore lockdep in case of TAINT_CRAP and TAINT_WARN events.

* lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taintFrederic Weisbecker2009-04-121-2/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Impact: provide useful missing info for developers Kernel taint can occur in several situations such as warnings, load of prorietary or staging modules, bad page, etc... But when such taint happens, a developer might still be working on the kernel, expecting that lockdep is still enabled. But a taint disables lockdep without ever warning about it. Such a kernel behaviour doesn't really help for kernel development. This patch adds this missing warning. Since the taint is done most of the time after the main message that explain the real source issue, it seems safe to warn about it inside add_taint() so that it appears at last, without hurting the main information. v2: Use a generic helper to disable lockdep instead of an open coded xchg().

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Impact: eliminate secondary warnings during panic() We can panic() in a number of difficult, atomic contexts, hence we use bust_spinlocks(1) in panic() to increase oops_in_progress, which prevents various debug checks we have in place. But in practice this protection only covers the first few printk's done by panic() - it does not cover the later attempt to stop all other CPUs and kexec(). If a secondary warning triggers in one of those facilities that can make the panic message scroll off. So do bust_spinlocks(0) only much later in panic(). (which code is only reached if panic policy is relaxed that it can return after a warning message) Reported-by: Jan Beulich <jbeulich@novell.com> LKML-Reference: <49B91A7E.76E4.0078.0@novell.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

Convert the taint variable to an unsigned long and use only atomic bit operations on it. Unfortunately this means the intvec sysctl functions cannot be used on it anymore. It turned out the taint sysctl handler could actually be simplified a bit (since it only increases capabilities) so this patch actually removes code.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | turns out gcc generates such stackprotector-failure sequences in certain circumstances: movq -8(%rbp), %rax # D.16032, xorq %gs:40, %rax #, jne .L17 #, leave ret .L17: call __stack_chk_fail # .size __stack_chk_test_func, .-__stack_chk_test_func .section .init.text,"ax",@progbits .type panic_setup, @function panic_setup: pushq %rbp # note that there's no jump back to the failing context after the call to __stack_chk_fail - i.e. it has a ((noreturn)) attribute. Which is fair enough in the normal case but kills the self-test. (as we cannot reliably return in the self-test) Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

* | stackprotector: turn not having the right gcc into a #warningArjan van de Ven2008-05-261-0/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | If the user selects the stack-protector config option, but does not have a gcc that has the right bits enabled (for example because it isn't build with a glibc that supports TLS, as is common for cross-compilers, but also because it may be too old), then the runtime test fails right now. This patch adds a warning message for this scenario. This warning accomplishes two goals 1) the user is informed that the security option he selective isn't available 2) the user is suggested to turn of the CONFIG option that won't work for him, and would make the runtime test fail anyway.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | if CONFIG_DEBUG_BUGVERBOSE is set then the user most definitely wanted to see as much information about kernel crashes as possible - so give them at least a stack dump. this is particularly useful for stackprotector related panics, where the stacktrace can give us the exact location of the (attempted) attack.

* Taint kernel after WARN_ON(condition)Nur Hussein2008-04-291-2/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The kernel is sent to tainted within the warn_on_slowpath() function, and whenever a warning occurs the new taint flag 'W' is set. This is useful to know if a warning occurred before a BUG by preserving the warning as a flag in the taint state. This does not work on architectures where WARN_ON has its own definition. These archs are: 1. s390 2. superh 3. avr32 4. parisc The maintainers of these architectures have been added in the Cc: list in this email to alert them to the situation. The documentation in oops-tracing.txt has been updated to include the new flag.

* debug: add the end-of-trace marker and the module list toArjan van de Ven2008-01-301-4/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Unlike oopses, WARN_ON() currently does't print the loaded modules list. This makes it harder to take action on certain bug reports. For example, recently there were a set of WARN_ON()s reported in the mac80211 stack, which were just signalling a driver bug. It takes then anther round trip to the bug reporter (if he responds at all) to find out which driver is at fault. Another issue is that, unlike oopses, WARN_ON() doesn't currently printk the helpful "cut here" line, nor the "end of trace" marker. Now that WARN_ON() is out of line, the size increase due to this is minimal and it's worth adding.

* debug: move WARN_ON() out of lineArjan van de Ven2008-01-301-0/+15
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | A quick grep shows that there are currently 1145 instances of WARN_ON in the kernel. Currently, WARN_ON is pretty much entirely inlined, which makes it hard to enhance it without growing the size of the kernel (and getting Andrew unhappy). This patch build on top of Olof's patch that introduces __WARN, and places the slowpath out of line. It also uses Ingo's suggestion to not use __FUNCTION__ but to use kallsyms to do the lookup; this saves a ton of extra space since gcc doesn't need to store the function string twice now: 3936367 833603 624736 5394706 525112 vmlinux.before 3917508 833603 624736 5375847 520767 vmlinux-slowpath 15Kb savings...

* debug: add end-of-oops markerArjan van de Ven2007-12-201-0/+18
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Right now it's nearly impossible for parsers that collect kernel crashes from logs or emails (such as www.kerneloops.org) to detect the end-of-oops condition. In addition, it's not currently possible to detect whether or not 2 oopses that look alike are actually the same oops reported twice, or are truly two unique oopses. This patch adds an end-of-oops marker, and makes the end marker include a very simple 64-bit random ID to be able to detect duplicate reports. Normally, this ID is calculated as a late_initcall() (in the hope that at that time there is enough entropy to get a unique enough ID); however for early oopses the oops_exit() function needs to generate the ID on the fly. We do this all at the _end_ of an oops printout, so this does not impact our ability to get the most important portions of a crash out to the console first. [ Sidenote: the already existing oopses-since-bootup counter we print during crashes serves as the differentiator between multiple oopses that trigger during the same bootup. ] Tested on 32-bit and 64-bit x86. Artificially injected very early crashes as well, as expected they result in this constant ID after multiple bootups: ---[ end trace ca143223eefdc828 ]--- ---[ end trace ca143223eefdc828 ]--- because the random pools are still all zero. But it all still works fine and causes no additional problems (which is the main goal of instrumentation code).
