Subject[PATCH 4.14 055/115] perf probe powerpc: Fix trace event post-processing
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Sandipan Das <sandipan@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 354b064b8ebc1e1ede58550ca9e08bfa81e6af43 ]

In some cases, a symbol may have multiple aliases. Attempting to add an
entry probe for such symbols results in a probe being added at an
incorrect location while it fails altogether for return probes. This is
only applicable for binaries with debug information.

During the arch-dependent post-processing, the offset from the start of
the symbol at which the probe is to be attached is determined and added
to the start address of the symbol to get the probe's location. In case
there are multiple aliases, this offset gets added multiple times for
each alias of the symbol and we end up with an incorrect probe location.

This can be verified on a powerpc64le system as shown below.

$ nm /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/vmlinux | grep "sys_open$"
...
c000000000414290 T __se_sys_open
c000000000414290 T sys_open

$ objdump -d /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/vmlinux | grep -A 10 "<__se_sys_open>:"

c000000000414290 <__se_sys_open>:
c000000000414290: 19 01 4c 3c addis r2,r12,281
c000000000414294: 70 c4 42 38 addi r2,r2,-15248

c0000000004142a4: f8 ff e1 fb std r31,-8(r1)
c0000000004142a8: 10 00 01 f8 std r0,16(r1)
c0000000004142ac: c1 ff 21 f8 stdu r1,-64(r1)
c0000000004142b0: 78 23 9f 7c mr r31,r4
c0000000004142b4: 78 1b 7e 7c mr r30,r3

For both the entry probe and the return probe, the probe location
should be _text+4276888 (0xc000000000414298). Since another alias
exists for 'sys_open', the post-processing code will end up adding
the offset (8 for powerpc64le) twice and perf will attempt to add
the probe at _text+4276896 (0xc0000000004142a0) instead.
