Subject: [PATCH 1/8] kgdb: core API and gdb protocol handler
Date: Sat,  9 Feb 2008 07:35:07 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1202564114-18587-2-git-send-email-jason.wessel@windriver.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1202564114-18587-1-git-send-email-jason.wessel@windriver.com>

From: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>

This patch provides all of the common code, documentation and basic
Kconfig changes, as well as the common hooks.  With out arch changes
this code does not actually do anything to the kernel.  The idea is
that each arch can add in a minimal set of hooks to make use of the
KGDB core.

The core contains the protocol handler to talk to a debugger client
such as gdb via the gdb serial protocol.  The core also contains the
needed hooks for an arch to be SMP and preempt safe.  The weak
definitions allow an arch to override a part of the core, if it the
arch impelmentation requires it.

Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>
 - breakup kgdb_handle_exeception
 - dyanmic registration of kgdb hooks
Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@web.de>
 - Reduce EXPORT_SYMBOLs, switch the rest to EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL
 - Drop code that is (yet) unused
 - Rename variables, refactor their types (personal taste, for sure)
 - Remove "extern" for function prototypes
 - Remove MODULE_LICENSE/DESCRIPTION from kgdb core
 - Refactor Kconfig kgdb choices
Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
 - clean up includes, eliminate duplicate ones.
 - general code cleanups and comments
Harvey Harrison <harvey.harrison@gmail.com>
 - compilation cleanups

+    <para>
+    kgdb is a source level debugger for linux kernel. It is used along
+    with gdb to debug a linux kernel. Kernel developers can debug a kernel
+    similar to application programs with the use of kgdb. It makes it
+    possible to place breakpoints in kernel code, step through the code
+    and observe variables.
+    </para>
+    <para>
+    Two machines are required for using kgdb. One of these machines is a
+    development machine and the other is a test machine. The machines are
+    typically connected through a serial line, a null-modem cable which
+    connects their serial ports.  It is also possible however, to use an
+    ethernet connection between the machines.  The kernel to be debugged
+    runs on the test machine. gdb runs on the development machine. The
+    serial line or ethernet connection is used by gdb to communicate to
+    the kernel being debugged.
+    </para>
+  </chapter>
+  <chapter id="CompilingAKernel">
+    <title>Compiling a kernel</title>
+    <para>
+    To enable <symbol>CONFIG_KGDB</symbol>, look under the "Kernel debugging"
+    and then select "KGDB: kernel debugging with remote gdb".
+    </para>
+    <para>
+    Next you should choose one of more I/O drivers to interconnect debugging
+    host and debugged target.  If debugging early boot steps is required,
+    at least one driver has to be built in.  I/O driver configuration takes
+    place via kernel or module parameters, see following chapter.
+    </para>
+    <para>
+    While KGDB is connect with the host, it can dump console messages over
+    this link.  This is specifically useful for collecting critical kernel
+    messages while only a single serial port is available.  Enable
+    <symbol>CONFIG_KGDB_CONSOLE</symbol> to activate this feature.
+    </para>
+  </chapter>
+  <chapter id="BootingTheKernel">
+    <title>Booting the kernel</title>
+    <para>
+    All drivers can be reconfigured at run time, if
+    <symbol>CONFIG_SYSFS</symbol> and <symbol>CONFIG_MODULES</symbol> are
+    enabled, by echo'ing a new config string to
+    <constant>/sys/module/&lt;driver&gt;/parameter/&lt;option&gt;</constant>.
+    The driver can be unconfigured by passing an empty string.  You cannot
+    change the configuration while the debugger is attached.  In that case
+    issue the required <constant>detach</constant> command via gdb first.
+    </para>
+  </chapter>
+  <chapter id="ConnectingGDB">
+  <title>Connecting gdb</title>
+    <para>
+    If you have used any of the methods to have KGDB stop and create
+    an initial breakpoint described in the previous chapter, kgdb prints
+    the message "Waiting for connection from remote gdb..." on the console
+    and waits for connection from gdb. At this point you connect gdb to kgdb.
+    </para>
+    <para>
+    Example (serial):
+    </para>
+    <programlisting>
+    % gdb ./vmlinux
+    (gdb) set remotebaud 115200
+    (gdb) target remote /dev/ttyS0
+    </programlisting>
+    <para>
+    Example (ethernet):
+    </para>
+    <programlisting>
+    % gdb ./vmlinux
+    (gdb) target remote udp:192.168.2.2:6443
+    </programlisting>
+    <para>
+    Once connected, you can debug a kernel the way you would debug an
+    application program.
+    </para>
+  </chapter>
+  <chapter id="CommonBackEndReq">
+    <title>The common backend (required)</title>
+      <para>
+      There are a few flags which must be set on every architecture in
+      their &lt;asm/kgdb.h&gt; file.  These are:
+      <itemizedlist>
+        <listitem>
+	  <para>
+	  NUMREGBYTES: The size in bytes of all of the registers, so
+	  that we can ensure they will all fit into a packet.
+	  </para>
+	  <para>
+	  BUFMAX: The size in bytes of the buffer GDB will read into.
+	  This must be larger than NUMREGBYTES.
+	  </para>
+	  <para>
+	  CACHE_FLUSH_IS_SAFE: Set to one if it is always safe to call
+	  flush_cache_range or flush_icache_range.  On some architectures,
+	  these functions may not be safe to call on SMP since we keep other
+	  CPUs in a holding pattern.
+	  </para>
+	</listitem>
+      </itemizedlist>
+      </para>
+      <para>
+      There are also the following functions for the common backend,
+      found in kernel/kgdb.c, that must be supplied by the
+      architecture-specific backend.  No weak version of these is provided.
