SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] kprobe: fix: Add ftrace_ops_assist_func to kprobe blacklist
Hi Steven,

I completely forgot about this issue until recently when I encountered it again.
Instrumenting the ftrace_ops_assist_func symbol and some other symbol
seems to be causing problems.

Placing kretprobes like in the following configuration crashes my
kernel (4.16.0-rc5) on a Qemu/KVM virtual machine:

config 1:
echo "r:event_1 __fdget" >> kprobe_events
echo "r:event_2 ftrace_ops_assist_func" >> kprobe_events

config 2:
echo "r:event_1 __fdget_pos" >> kprobe_events
echo "r:event_2 ftrace_ops_assist_func" >> kprobe_events

config 3:
echo 'r:event_1 arch_dup_task_struct' >> kprobe_events
echo 'r:event_2 ftrace_ops_assist_func' >> kprobe_events

config 4:
echo 'r:event_1 sys_open' >> kprobe_events
echo 'r:event_2 ftrace_ops_assist_func' >> kprobe_events

Here is my kernel config [1]:

In a previous email [2], you mentioned that you would like to add the
ftrace-related symbols to a section to un-blacklist them all at once
on demand but wanted to discuss it at Linux Plumbers. Do you still
think that it's the right approach?

I can easily test any patch regarding this issue.

Thank you,
