+This driver use drgn and devlink for debugging.
+
+Dump kernel data structures in drgn
+-----------------------------------
+
+To dump kernel data structures, the following Python script can be used
+in drgn:
+
+.. code-block:: python
+
+ def align(x, a):
+ """the alignment a should be a power of 2
+ """
+ mask = a - 1
+ return (x+ mask) & ~mask
+
+ def struct_size(struct_type):
+ struct_str = "struct {}".format(struct_type)
+ return sizeof(Object(prog, struct_str, address=0x0))
+
+ def netdev_priv(netdevice):
+ NETDEV_ALIGN = 32
+ return netdevice.value_() + align(struct_size("net_device"), NETDEV_ALIGN)
+
+ name = 'xxx'
+ qlge_device = None
+ netdevices = prog['init_net'].dev_base_head.address_of_()
+ for netdevice in list_for_each_entry("struct net_device", netdevices, "dev_list"):
+ if netdevice.name.string_().decode('ascii') == name:
+ print(netdevice.name)
+
+ ql_adapter = Object(prog, "struct ql_adapter", address=netdev_priv(qlge_device))
+
+The struct ql_adapter will be printed in drgn as follows,
+
+ >>> ql_adapter
+ (struct ql_adapter){
+ .ricb = (struct ricb){
+ .base_cq = (u8)0,
+ .flags = (u8)120,
+ .mask = (__le16)26637,
+ .hash_cq_id = (u8 [1024]){ 172, 142, 255, 255 },
+ .ipv6_hash_key = (__le32 [10]){},
+ .ipv4_hash_key = (__le32 [4]){},
+ },
+ .flags = (unsigned long)0,
+ .wol = (u32)0,
+ .nic_stats = (struct nic_stats){
+ .tx_pkts = (u64)0,
+ .tx_bytes = (u64)0,

+ .tx_ucast_pkts = (u64)0,
+ .tx_ctl_pkts = (u64)0,
+ .tx_pause_pkts = (u64)0,
+ ...
+ },
+ .active_vlans = (unsigned long [64]){
+ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 52780853100545, 18446744073709551615,
+ 18446619461681283072, 0, 42949673024, 2147483647,
+ },
+ .rx_ring = (struct rx_ring [17]){
+ {
+ .cqicb = (struct cqicb){
+ .msix_vect = (u8)0,
+ .reserved1 = (u8)0,

+ }
+
+coredump via devlink
+--------------------
+
+
+And the coredump obtained via devlink in json format looks like,
+
+.. code:: shell
+
+ $ devlink health dump show DEVICE reporter coredump -p -j
+ {
+ "Core Registers": {
+ "segment": 1,
+ "values": [ 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0 ]
+ },
+ "Test Logic Regs": {
+ "segment": 2,
+ "values": [ 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0 ]
+ },
+ "RMII Registers": {
+ "segment": 3,
+ "values": [ 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0 ]
+ },
+ ...
+ "Sem Registers": {
+ "segment": 50,
+ "values": [ 0,0,0,0 ]
+ }
+ }
+
+When the module parameter qlge_force_coredump is set to be true, the MPI
+RISC reset before coredumping. So coredumping will much longer since
+devlink tool has to wait for 5 secs for the resetting to be
+finished.
