2009-09-20markup_oops: use modinfo to avoid confusion with underscored module namesOzan Çaglayan1-4/+1
When EIP is at a module having an underscore in its name, the current code fails to find it because the module filenames has '-' instead of '_'. Use modinfo for a better path finding.

2009-07-29markup_oops: fix it with 32-bit userspace on a 64-bit kernelMatthew Wilcox1-2/+3
A 32-bit perl can't handle 64-bit addresses without using the BigInt package.

2009-02-15scripts: add x86 register parser to markup_oops.plArjan van de Ven1-6/+100
An oops dump also contains the register values. This patch parses these for (32 bit) x86, and then annotates the disassembly with these values; this helps in analysis of the oops by the developer, for example, NULL pointer or other pointer bugs show up clearly this way.

2009-01-12script: improve markup_oops.pl to also decode oopses in modulesArjan van de Ven1-9/+50
There has been some light flamewar on lkml about decoding oopses in modules (as part of the crashdump flamewar). Now this isn't rocket science, just the markup_oops.pl script cheaped out and didn't handle modules. But really; a flamewar all about that?? What happened to C++ in the kernel or reading files from inside the kernel? This patch adds module support to markup_oops.pl; it's not the most pretty perl but it works for my testcases...

2009-01-06scripts: script from kerneloops.org to pretty print oops dumpsArjan van de Ven1-0/+162
We're struggling all the time to figure out where the code came from that oopsed.. The script below (a adaption from a script used by kerneloops.org) can help developers quite a bit, at least for non-module cases. It works and looks like this: [/home/arjan/linux]$ dmesg | perl scripts/markup_oops.pl vmlinux { struct agp_memory *memory; memory = agp_allocate_memory(agp_bridge, pg_count, type); c055c10f: 89 c2 mov %eax,%edx if (memory == NULL) c055c111: 74 19 je c055c12c <agp_allocate_memory_wrap+0x30> /* This function must only be called when current_controller != NULL */ static void agp_insert_into_pool(struct agp_memory * temp) { struct agp_memory *prev; prev = agp_fe.current_controller->pool; c055c113: a1 ec dc 8f c0 mov 0xc08fdcec,%eax *c055c118: 8b 40 10 mov 0x10(%eax),%eax <----- faulting instruction if (prev != NULL) { c055c11b: 85 c0 test %eax,%eax c055c11d: 74 05 je c055c124 <agp_allocate_memory_wrap+0x28> prev->prev = temp; c055c11f: 89 50 04 mov %edx,0x4(%eax) temp->next = prev; c055c122: 89 02 mov %eax,(%edx) } agp_fe.current_controller->pool = temp; c055c124: a1 ec dc 8f c0 mov 0xc08fdcec,%eax c055c129: 89 50 10 mov %edx,0x10(%eax) if (memory == NULL) return NULL; agp_insert_into_pool(memory); so in this case, we faulted while dereferencing agp_fe.current_controller pointer, and we get to see exactly which function and line it affects... Personally I find this very useful, and I can see value for having this script in the kernel for more-than-just-me to use. Caveats: * It only works for oopses not-in-modules * It only works nicely for kernels compiled with CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO * It's not very fast. * It only works on x86 Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
