Linux Kernel Markers - kernel 2.6.20

Hi,

You will find, in the following posts, the latest revision of the Linux Kernel
Markers. Due to the need some tracing projects (LTTng, SystemTAP) has of this
kind of mechanism, it could be nice to consider it for mainstream inclusion.

Recently added : completed correct support for Intel XMC-safe code modification
(erratum 49 of the Pentium III). I am not using the kprobe infrastructure
because it forbids instrumentation of too much core kernel functions (traps
handlers, lockdep.c, ...). I also made the "GEN_MARK" marker available at all
time : it will force using the generic version of the markers at a specific
instrumentation site. It is intended to be used at instrumentation sites that
are not reentrant with respect to the breakpoint handler.
lockdep.c/trace_hardirqs_on/off() is a good example of where it is needed :
the breakpoint handler calls hardirq tracing event when it returns.

The following patches apply on 2.6.20.

These patches compile fine against :

arm
i686
ia64
m68k
mips
mipsel
x86_64
ppc 405
powerpc 970
s390
sparc
sparc64

And what can I do with these markers?

And once I've done it, are there any userspace applications I can use to
get the data out in human-usable form?

It seems to me that these patches aren't sequenced correctly - the kernel won't
build at each step of the patch sequence.  Maybe I'm mistaken in that.  We prefer
it this way so that people don't hit wont-compile points when doing bisection searches.

I think once we've done this we can nuke
CONFIG_MARKERS_ENABLE_OPTIMIZATION?  (Please, let it be true).

Also perhaps this nastiness can go away once each architecture has

eww.  Can we put a suitable arch_marker_set_ins_enable() into each arch's

The LTTng user-space programs use it today.  Systemtap used to support
the earlier marker prototype and will be rapidly ported over to this
new API upon acceptance.

Hi Andrew,

The main goal of this config option is for embedded systems which
doesn't support live code modification. Maybe we can put that under
"embedded sytems" menu ?

No, but should be : it is defined by the architecture's marker.h when
the marker flavor has to do code motification when the marker state is
modified.

Or maybe put that in asm-generic so we do not duplicate code.

That's good.

It would be beneficial if some people from those projects could spare the
cycles to carefully review and runtime test this code.

Also, I'm not 100% clear on where we ended up with the huge
static-vs-dynamic flamewar.  Did everyone end up happy?  Is this patchset a
reasonable compromise?  Or do we need a rematch?

LTTng is using the marker infrastructure since last november. Me and my
users have been very happy with it.

I think the final agreement was the need for some kind of code marking
system, which I tried to implement as best as I could. It gives very
good performances while tracing (advantage of static tracing), has a
very very minimal performance and binary size impact when disabled
(advantage of dynamic tracing) and it can be activated dynamically
(advantage of dynamic tracing).

Sure, as soon as SystemTap translator supports this new marker mechanism 
we will give it a spin and report results.

 From my view this is a good compromise. We all realized in that long 
discussion thread that we need a way to mark the code in the middle of 
functions that can later be activated dynamically. Mathieu's current 
implementation meets that goal. I will be happy to see this in.

I guess the header of include/linux/marker.h should go into
Documentation/marker.txt. Will fix. Will be in the next reply.

You can put markers at important locations in the code. They act as
lightweight hooks that can pass an abitrary number of parameters,
described in a printk-like format string, to a function.

They can be used for tracing (LTTng, LKET over SystemTAP), overall
performance accounting (SystemTAP). They could also be used to implement
efficient hooks for SELinux or any other subsystem the would have this
kind of need.

LTTng and LTTV, SystemTAP (should be updated to the new API).

Linux Kernel Markers - Documentation

Here is some documentation explaining what is/how to use the Linux
Kernel Markers.

+ 	             Using the Linux Kernel Markers
+
+			    Mathieu Desnoyers
+
+
+	This document discusses the purpose of markers. It shows some usage
+examples of the Linux Kernel Markers : how to insert markers within the kernel
+and how to connect probes to a marker. Finally, it has some probe module
+examples. This is what connects to a marker.
+
+
+* Purpose of markers
+
+You can put markers at important locations in the code. They act as
+lightweight hooks that can pass an arbitrary number of parameters,
+described in a printk-like format string, to a function whenever the marker
+code is reached.
+
+They can be used for tracing (LTTng, LKET over SystemTAP), overall performance
+accounting (SystemTAP). They could also be used to implement
+efficient hooks for SELinux or any other subsystem the would have this
+kind of need.
+
+Using the markers for system audit (SELinux) would require to pass a
+variable by address that would be later checked by the marked routine.
+
+
+* Usage
+
+MARK(subsystem_event, "%d %s %p[struct task_struct]",
+  someint, somestring, current);
+Where :
+- Subsystem is the name of your subsystem.
+- event is the name of the event to mark.
+- "%d %s %p[struct task_struct]" is the formatted string for (printk-style).
+- someint is an integer.
+- somestring is a char pointer.
+- current is a pointer to a struct task_struct.
+
+The expression %p[struct task_struct] is a suggested marker definition
+standard that could eventually be used for pointer type checking in
+sparse. The brackets contain the type to which the pointer refer.
+
+The marker mechanism supports multiple instances of the same marker.
+Markers can be put in inline functions, inlined static functions and
+unrolled loops.
+
+Note : It is safe to put markers within preempt-safe code : preempt_enable()
+will not call the scheduler due to the tests in preempt_schedule().
+
+
+* Optimization for a given architecture
+
+You will find, in asm-*/marker.h, optimisations for given architectures
+(currently i386 and powerpc). They use a load immediate instead of a data read,
+which saves a data cache hit, but also requires cross CPU code modification. In
+order to support embedded systems which use read-only memory for their code, the
+optimization can be disabled through menu options.

so is the MARK() supposed to be:
  MARK(subsystem, event, ...

Please make the 2 doc. lines above match the parameters...

Do FS_CLOSE_FORMAT and probe_fs_close() need to be defined here?

Not sure whether you had had other feedback on this elsewhere in
the rest of the thread, but yes, this would make sense if the
"embedded" angle is the only reason we need this (and not, say,
performance, etc.) Also, having done that, maybe it would make
some sense to have it be a "disable" rather than "enable":
CONFIG_MARKERS_DISABLE_OPTIMIZATION?

Hi Karim,

Yes, that was indeed the first way I implemented it, as a "disable"
option. One of the main thing we have to figure out before I modify this
is if we want to have the generic version of markers available in a
"forced" manner at the marker site with the GEN_MARK macro instead of
the MARK macro (this is the actual implementation). It has proven to
be useful to instrument lockdep.c irq enable/disable tracing functions.
The reason why is because they are called just before the trap handler
returns and I need it to do XMC on x86 and x86_64. It would therefore
cause a recursive trap.

I think it makes sense to have this kind of support for hard-to-instrument
sites within the marker infrastructure, but the cost is to have two
marker flavors : MARK and GEN_MARK (but really GEN_MARK is only intended
for a few sites).

Mathieu

I must admit that I'm unsure about the use of different marker macros.
How about bitwise flags that could be coded as part of the marker
at the marker site? Something like "MARKER_TYPE_FORCED". This would
still allow some form of toplevel control at the macro definition.
Otherwise there's some digging to be done on a per-marker
basis ...

The problem with your proposal, I guess, is that people will have to
add a supplementary parameter to the macro.

It is not uncommon to have two slightly versions of macros/functions in
the kernel (preempt_enable()/preempt_enable_no_resched(), or macros
starting with underscores). Normally, the underscore states that the
macro does not do the proper locking itself (this is not our case).
Therefore, I would suggest using a name that suggests against what the
macro is protected. For instance, a marker pointing to the generic
version is only needed to protect against the debug trap handler and
should only be used on x86 and x86_64.

So, something like MARK_NO_TRAP() would be appropriate : it would be an
optimized version for every architecture except x86 and x86_64. The
meaning of this macro is : "This is a marker that will never generate a
trap because of its activation" (just as a precision : it doesn't say
anything about the probe connected to the marker). It also acts as a
strong suggestion about what *should not* be done within the probe.

Normally, the underscore states that the macro does not do the proper locking itself (this is not our case). Therefore, I would suggest using a name that suggests against what the macro is protected. For instance, a marker

I can see your point, to a degree. The difference here is that the
variants you mention are actually macros that do something, they
aren't stubs for code. IOW, you actually know what's happening
underneath a foo() vs. _foo() by its name only. Maybe this applies
the same to markers, I don't know. But maybe we want to make it
easy for those looking at markers that there's a master kill
switch somewhere that all markers go through and through which
they can all be disabled very simply (say by using a "#if 0").
While different names *may* be doing that, a same name *does* that.
But I don't feel too strongly either way, it's really up to those
who maintaining the code to say.

* [PATCH] Linux Kernel Markers - cleanup
  2007-02-21 22:06               ` Karim Yaghmour

Linux Kernel Markers - cleanup

- Keep a positive CONFIG_MARKERS_ENABLE_OPTIMIZATION for Makefile.
- Have CONFIG_MARKERS_DISABLE_OPTIMIZATION depending on EMBEDDED shown
  in the menus.
- CONFIG_MARKERS_ENABLE_OPTIMIZATION depends on
       !CONFIG_MARKERS_DISABLE_OPTIMIZATION and defaults to y (hidden)
         (suggested by Martin Bligh)
- GEN_MARK is now declared in linux/marker.h
- asm-generic/marker.h is now only used as a fallback defining MARK as GEN_MARK
- New MARK_NO_TRAP defined for each architecture.
  asm-generic : defined as GEN_MARK
  asm-i386 : defined as GEN_MARK
  asm-powerpc : defined as MARK (because we don't need to use trap for XMC)
- Remove ugly ifdefs SOME_RANDOM_ARCH in architecture agnostic code

It applies on top of the
linux-kernel-markers-architecture-independant-code-license-fix patch.

Compiles on
arm
i686 (markers enabled, markers disabled)
ia64
m68k
mips
mipsel
powerpc 405
powerpc 970
s390
sparc (except link error not related to markers)
sparc64
x86_64
