| * | lkdtm: add debugfs access and loosen KPROBE tiesSimon Kagstrom2010-03-061-3/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Add adds a debugfs interface and additional failure modes to LKDTM to provide similar functionality to the provoke-crash driver submitted here: http://lwn.net/Articles/371208/ Crashes can now be induced either through module parameters (as before) or through the debugfs interface as in provoke-crash. The patch also provides a new "direct" interface, where KPROBES are not used, i.e., the crash is invoked directly upon write to the debugfs file. When built without KPROBES configured, only this mode is available. Signed-off-by: Simon Kagstrom <simon.kagstrom@netinsight.net> Cc: M.

| | * | rcu: Add RCU_CPU_STALL_VERBOSE to dump detailed per-task informationPaul E. McKenney2010-02-251-0/+12

| | * | rcu: Introduce lockdep-based checking to RCU read-side primitivesPaul E. McKenney2010-02-251-0/+12

It is therefore time to enlist the aid of lockdep. This set of patches is inspired by earlier work by Peter Zijlstra and Thomas Gleixner, and takes the following approach: o Set up separate lockdep classes for RCU, RCU-bh, and RCU-sched. o Set up separate lockdep classes for each instance of SRCU. o Create primitives that check for being in an RCU read-side critical section. These return exact answers if lockdep is fully enabled, but if unsure, report being in an RCU read-side critical section. (We want to avoid false positives!) The primitives are: For RCU: rcu_read_lock_held(void) For RCU-bh: rcu_read_lock_bh_held(void) For RCU-sched: rcu_read_lock_sched_held(void) For SRCU: srcu_read_lock_held(struct srcu_struct *sp) o Add rcu_dereference_check(), which takes a second argument in which one places a boolean expression based on the above primitives and/or lockdep_is_held(). o A new kernel configuration parameter, CONFIG_PROVE_RCU, enables rcu_dereference_check(). This depends on CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING, and should be quite helpful during the transition period while CONFIG_PROVE_RCU-unaware patches are in flight. The existing rcu_dereference() primitive does no checking, but upcoming patches will change that. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | I've forgot to add 'perf lock' line to command-list.txt, so users of perf could not find perf lock when they type 'perf'. Fixing command-list.txt requires document (tools/perf/Documentation/perf-lock.txt). But perf lock is too much "under construction" to write a stable document, so this is something like pseudo document for now. And I wrote description of perf lock at help section of CONFIG_LOCK_STAT, this will navigate users of lock trace events.

| * | percpu: implement optional weak percpu definitionsTejun Heo2009-06-241-0/+15
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Some archs (alpha and s390) need to use weak definitions for percpu variables in modules so that the compiler generates external references for them. This patch implements weak percpu definitions which arch can enable by defining ARCH_NEEDS_WEAK_PER_CPU in arch percpu header file. This weak definition adds the following two restrictions on percpu variable definitions. 1. percpu symbols must be unique whether static or not 2. percpu variables can't be defined inside a function To ensure that these restrictions are observed in generic code, config option DEBUG_FORCE_WEAK_PER_CPU enables weak percpu definitions for all cases. This patch is inspired by Ivan Kokshaysky's alpha percpu patch.

These definitions fit into plugins defined in kernel/rcutree.c for this purpose. This variant of preemptable RCU uses a new algorithm whose read-side expense is roughly that of classic hierarchical RCU under CONFIG_PREEMPT. This new algorithm's update-side expense is similar to that of classic hierarchical RCU, and, in absence of read-side preemption or blocking, is exactly that of classic hierarchical RCU. Perhaps more important, this new algorithm has a much simpler implementation, saving well over 1,000 lines of code compared to mainline's implementation of preemptable RCU, which will hopefully be retired in favor of this new algorithm. The simplifications are obtained by maintaining per-task nesting state for running tasks, and using a simple lock-protected algorithm to handle accounting when tasks block within RCU read-side critical sections, making use of lessons learned while creating numerous user-level RCU implementations over the past 18 months.

* / | CRED: Add some configurable debugging [try #6]David Howells2009-09-021-0/+15
|/ / | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Add a config option (CONFIG_DEBUG_CREDENTIALS) to turn on some debug checking for credential management. The additional code keeps track of the number of pointers from task_structs to any given cred struct, and checks to see that this number never exceeds the usage count of the cred struct (which includes all references, not just those from task_structs). Furthermore, if SELinux is enabled, the code also checks that the security pointer in the cred struct is never seen to be invalid. This attempts to catch the bug whereby inode_has_perm() faults in an nfsd kernel thread on seeing cred->security be a NULL pointer (it appears that the credential struct has been previously released): http://www.kerneloops.org/oops.php?number=252883 Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | (feature suggested by Sergey Senozhatsky) Kmemleak needs to track all the memory allocations but some of these happen before kmemleak is initialised. These are stored in an internal buffer which may be exceeded in some kernel configurations. This patch adds a configuration option with a default value of 400 and also removes the stack dump when the early log buffer is exceeded.

We re-named 'DYNAMIC_PRINTK_DEBUG' to 'DYNAMIC_DEBUG' in 2.6.30.... 'PRINTK_DEBUG' as pointed out never existed. So, it appears to be extraneous, and should be removed. thanks for pointing it out.

| | | | | | | | | | | | Always omit frame pointers on s390. They aren't too useful for the kernel since we have already the kernel stack backchain which allows us to walk the kernel stack. So eleminate the extra code for frame pointers. Only allow the extra code for the function tracer since the gcc compile options -pg and -fomit-frame-pointer are incompatible.

This patch implements it for the rest of the architectures by filling the pages with poison byte patterns after free_pages() and verifying the poison patterns before alloc_pages(). This generic one cannot detect invalid page accesses immediately but invalid read access may cause invalid dereference by poisoned memory and invalid write access can be detected after a long delay.
