2008-02-06remove support for un-needed _extratext sectionRobin Getz1-10/+1
When passing a zero address to kallsyms_lookup(), the kernel thought it was a valid kernel address, even if it is not. This is because is_ksym_addr() called is_kernel_extratext() and checked against labels that don't exist on many archs (which default as zero). Since PPC was the only kernel which defines _extra_text, (in 2005), and no longer needs it, this patch removes _extra_text support.

2007-07-17kallsyms: make KSYM_NAME_LEN include space for trailing '\0'Tejun Heo1-8/+8
KSYM_NAME_LEN is peculiar in that it does not include the space for the trailing '\0', forcing all users to use KSYM_NAME_LEN + 1 when allocating buffer. This is nonsense and error-prone. Moreover, when the caller forgets that it's very likely to subtly bite back by corrupting the stack because the last position of the buffer is always cleared to zero. This patch increments KSYM_NAME_LEN by one and updates code accordingly. * off-by-one bug in asm-powerpc/kprobes.h::kprobe_lookup_name() macro is fixed. * Where MODULE_NAME_LEN and KSYM_NAME_LEN were used together, MODULE_NAME_LEN was treated as if it didn't include space for the trailing '\0'. Fix it.

2007-04-30Extend print_symbol capabilityRobert Peterson1-8/+15
Today's print_symbol function dumps a kernel symbol with printk. This patch extends the functionality of kallsyms.c so that the symbol lookup function may be used without the printk. This is useful for modules that want to dump symbols elsewhere, for example, to debugfs. I intend to use the new function call in the GFS2 file system (which will be a separate patch).

2006-12-07[PATCH] /proc/kallsyms reports lower-case types for some non-exported symbolsAdam B. Jerome1-8/+5
This patch addresses incorrect symbol type information reported through /proc/kallsyms. A lowercase character should designate the symbol as local (or non-exported). An uppercase character should designate the symbol as global (or external). Without this patch, some non-exported symbols are incorrectly assigned an upper-case designation in /proc/kallsyms. This patch corrects this condition by converting non-exported symbols types to lower case when appropriate and eliminates the superfluous upcase_if_global function Signed-off-by: Adam B.

2006-10-03[PATCH] Create kallsyms_lookup_size_offset()Franck Bui-Huu1-43/+80
Some uses of kallsyms_lookup() do not need to find out the name of a symbol and its module's name it belongs. This is specially true in arch specific code, which needs to unwind the stack to show the back trace during oops (mips is an example). In this specific case, we just need to retreive the function's size and the offset of the active intruction inside it. Adds a new entry "kallsyms_lookup_size_offset()" This new entry does exactly the same as kallsyms_lookup() but does not require any buffers to store any names. It returns 0 if it fails otherwise 1.

2006-10-02[PATCH] Kprobes: Make kprobe modules more portableAnanth N Mavinakayanahalli1-1/+0
In an effort to make kprobe modules more portable, here is a patch that: o Introduces the "symbol_name" field to struct kprobe. The symbol->address resolution now happens in the kernel in an architecture agnostic manner. 64-bit powerpc users no longer have to specify the ".symbols" o Introduces the "offset" field to struct kprobe to allow a user to specify an offset into a symbol. o The legacy mechanism of specifying the kprobe.addr is still supported. However, if both the kprobe.addr and kprobe.symbol_name are specified, probe registration fails with an -EINVAL. o The symbol resolution code uses kallsyms_lookup_name(). So CONFIG_KPROBES now depends on CONFIG_KALLSYMS o Apparantly kprobe modules were the only legitimate out-of-tree user of the kallsyms_lookup_name() EXPORT. Now that the symbol resolution happens in-kernel, remove the EXPORT as suggested by Christoph Hellwig o Modify tcp_probe.c that uses the kprobe interface so as to make it work on multiple platforms (in its earlier form, the code wouldn't work, say, on powerpc) Signed-off-by: Ananth N Mavinakayanahalli <ananth@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Prasanna S Panchamukhi <prasanna@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-07-14[PATCH] null-terminate over-long /proc/kallsyms symbolsAndreas Gruenbacher1-2/+2
Got a customer bug report (https://bugzilla.novell.com/190296) about kernel symbols longer than 127 characters which end up in a string buffer that is not NULL terminated, leading to garbage in /proc/kallsyms. Using strlcpy prevents this from happening, even though such symbols still won't come out right. A better fix would be to not use a fixed-size buffer, but it's probably not worth the trouble. (Modversion'ed symbols even have a length limit of 60.)

2005-10-30[PATCH] fix missing includesTim Schmielau1-0/+1
I recently picked up my older work to remove unnecessary #includes of sched.h, starting from a patch by Dave Jones to not include sched.h from module.h. This reduces the number of indirect includes of sched.h by ~300. Another ~400 pointless direct includes can be removed after this disentangling (patch to follow later). However, quite a few indirect includes need to be fixed up for this. In order to feed the patches through -mm with as little disturbance as possible, I've split out the fixes I accumulated up to now (complete for i386 and x86_64, more archs to follow later) and post them before the real patch. This way this large part of the patch is kept simple with only adding #includes, and all hunks are independent of each other. So if any hunk rejects or gets in the way of other patches, just drop it. My scripts will pick it up again in the next round.

2005-05-05[PATCH] ppc32: platform-specific functions missing from kallsyms.David Woodhouse1-2/+11
The PPC32 kernel puts platform-specific functions into separate sections so that unneeded parts of it can be freed when we've booted and actually worked out what we're running on today. This makes kallsyms ignore those functions, because they're not between _[se]text or _[se]inittext. Rather than teaching kallsyms about the various pmac/chrp/etc sections, this patch adds '_[se]extratext' markers for kallsyms.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds1-0/+411
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
