Subject: [PATCH] tracing / histogram: Fix NULL pointer dereference on strcmp() on NULL event name
Date: Sun, 8 Aug 2021 00:30:11 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210808003011.4037f8d0@oasis.local.home> (raw)

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

The following commands:

 # echo 'read_max u64 size;' > synthetic_events
 # echo 'hist:keys=common_pid:count=count:onmax($count).trace(read_max,count)' > events/syscalls/sys_enter_read/trigger

Causes:

The problem was the "trace(read_max,count)" where the "count" should be
"$count" as "onmax()" only handles variables (although it really should be
able to figure out that "count" is a field of sys_enter_read). But there's
a path that does not find the variable and ends up passing a NULL for the
event, which ends up getting passed to "strcmp()".

Add a check for NULL to return and error on the command with:

 # cat error_log
  hist:syscalls:sys_enter_read: error: Couldn't create or find variable
  Command: hist:keys=common_pid:count=count:onmax($count).trace(read_max,count)
                                ^
