Subject: [PATCH 0/5] kcov: PREEMPT_RT fixup + misc
Date: Mon, 30 Aug 2021 19:26:22 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The last patch in series is follow-up to address the PREEMPT_RT issue
within in kcov reported by Clark [0].
Patches 1-3 are smaller things that I noticed while staring at it.
Patch 4 is small change which makes replacement in #5 simpler / more
I tested this with the three examples in the documentation folder and I
didn't notice higher latency with kcov enabled. Debug or not, I don't
see a reason to make the lock a raw_spin_lock_t annd it would complicate
memory allocation as mentioned in #5.

One thing I noticed and have no idea if this is right or not:
The code seems to mix long and uint64_t for the reported instruction
pointer / position in the buffer. For instance
__sanitizer_cov_trace_pc() refers to a 64bit pointer (in the comment)
while the area pointer itself is (long *). The problematic part is that
a 32bit application on a 64bit pointer will expect a four byte pointer
while kernel uses an eight byte pointer.
