Hey everybody, this is a mix of a documentation fix with some additions
to the "panic_print" syscall / parameter. The goal here is being able
to collect all CPUs backtraces during a panic event and also
to enable "panic_print" in a kdump event - details of the reasoning
and design choices in the patches.

Thanks in advance for reviews!
Cheers,


Guilherme

Commit de6da1e8bcf0 ("panic: add an option to replay all the printk message in buffer")
added a new bit to the sysctl/kernel parameter "panic_print", but the
documentation was added only in kernel-parameters.txt, not in the sysctl guide.

Fix it here by adding bit 5 to sysctl admin-guide documentation.

Currently the "panic_print" parameter/sysctl allows some interesting debug
information to be printed during a panic event. This is useful for example
in cases the user cannot kdump due to resource limits, or if the user
collects panic logs in a serial output (or pstore) and prefers a fast
reboot instead of a kdump.

Happens that currently there's no way to see all CPUs backtraces in
a panic using "panic_print" on architectures that support that. We do
have "oops_all_cpu_backtrace" sysctl, but although partially overlapping
in the functionality, they are orthogonal in nature: "panic_print" is
a panic tuning (and we have panics without oopses, like direct calls to
panic() or maybe other paths that don't go through oops_enter()
function), and the original purpose of "oops_all_cpu_backtrace" is to
provide more information on oopses for cases in which the users desire
to continue running the kernel even after an oops, i.e., used in
non-panic scenarios.

So, we hereby introduce an additional bit for "panic_print" to allow
dumping the CPUs backtraces during a panic event.

Currently we have the "panic_print" parameter/sysctl to allow some extra
information to be printed in a panic event. On the other hand, the kdump
mechanism allows to kexec a new kernel to collect a memory dump for the
running kernel in case of panic.
Right now these options are incompatible: the user either sets the kdump
or makes use of "panic_print". The code path of "panic_print" isn't
reached when kdump is configured.

There are situations though in which this would be interesting: for
example, in systems that are very memory constrained, a handcrafted
tiny kernel/initrd for kdump might be used in order to only collect the
dmesg in kdump kernel. Even more common, systems with no disk space for
the full (compressed) memory dump might very well rely in this
functionality too, dumping only the dmesg with the additional information
provided by "panic_print".

So, this is what the patch does: allows both functionality to co-exist;
if "panic_print" is set and the system performs a kdump, the extra
information is printed on dmesg before the kexec. Some notes about the
design choices here:

(a) We could have introduced a sysctl or an extra bit on "panic_print"
to allow enabling the co-existence of kdump and "panic_print", but seems
that would be over-engineering; we have 3 cases, let's check how this
patch change things:

- if the user have kdump set and not "panic_print", nothing changes;
- if the user have "panic_print" set and not kdump, nothing changes;
- if both are enabled, now we print the extra information before kdump,
which is exactly the goal of the patch (and should be the goal of the
user, since they enabled both options).

(b) We assume that the code path won't return from __crash_kexec()
so we didn't guard against double execution of panic_print_sys_info().

This looks to be helpful for debugging panic.

Hi Luis, thank you! But I confess I'm very confused with this series. I
saw emails from Andrew that the patches had been accepted and were
available in -mm tree ([0] for example) but I'm not seeing them in
linux-next nor mmotm/mmots (although I saw them in mmotm directory for a
while before).

Andrew, could you clarify the state of them?
Appreciate that!

Cheers,


Guilherme

They'll turn up on ozlabs after I've tested it all then uploaded.  I do
this a couple of times a week, approx.

Hi Guilherme,

Thanks for you patch.  Could you add kexec list for any following up
patches?  This could change kdump behavior so let's see if any comments
from kexec list.

Kudos for the lore+lei tool so that I can catch this by seeing this
coming into Andrews tree :)

People may enable kdump crashkernel and panic_print together but
they are not aware the extra panic print could cause kdump not reliable
(in theory).  So at least some words in kernel-parameters.txt would
help.

Hi Dave, I'm really sorry for not adding the kexec list, I forgot. But I
will do next time for sure, my apologies. And thanks for taking a look
after you noticed that on lore, I appreciate your feedback!

That makes sense, I'll improve that in a follow-up patch, how about
that? Indeed it's a good idea to let people be sure that panic_print
might affect kdump reliability, although I consider the risk to be
pretty low. And I'll loop the kexec list for sure!

OK, thank you Andrew. Will I get some ping when that happens, through
some bot or anything? I'm waiting them to show up in linux-next tree so
to start a backport to an in-house kernel and starting using them.

If only the doc update, I think it is fine to be another follup-up
patch.

About your 1st option in patch log, there is crash_kexec_post_notifiers
kernel param which can be used to switch on panic notifiers before kdump
bootup.   Another way probably you can try to move panic print to be
panic notifier. Have this been discussed before?

Hey Dave, thanks for the suggestion. I've considered that but didn't
like the idea. My reasoning was: allowing post notifiers on kdump will
highly compromise the reliability, whereas the panic_print is a solo
option, and not very invasive.

To mix it with all panic notifiers would just increase a lot the risk of
a kdump failure. Put in other words: if I'm a kdump user and in order to
have this panic_print setting I'd also need to enable post notifiers,
certainly I'll not use the feature, 'cause I don't wanna risk kdump too
much.

One other option I've considered however, and I'd appreciate your
opinion here, would be a new option on crash_kexec_post_notifiers that
allows the users to select *which few notifiers* they want to enable.
Currently it's all or nothing, and this approach is too heavy/risky I
believe. Allowing customization on which post notifiers the user wants
would be much better and in this case, having a post notifier for
panic_print makes a lot of sense. What do you think?

Thanks!

Hi Guilherme, yes, I have the same concern.  But there could be more
things like the panic_print in the future, it looks odd to have more
kernel cmdline params though.

It is definitely a good idea, I'm more than glad to see this if you

Is anyone really using this approach? kmsg_dump() looks like a better
choice when there are memory constrains. It does not need to reserve
memory for booting the crash kernel.

I would not mind much but this change depends on a not fully reliable
assumption, see below.

Also it will also complicate the solution for the kmsg_dump() code path.
It would be better to discuss this togeter with the other patch
https://lore.kernel.org/r/20220106212835.119409-1-gpiccoli@igalia.com

This sounds suspiciously. There is small race window but it actually works.
__crash_kexec() really never returns when @kexec_crash_image is
loaded. Well, it might break in the future if the code is modified.

Yes, I have missed this possibility many times.

panic() already prevents double backtrace of the CPU that Oopsed, see:

#ifdef CONFIG_DEBUG_BUGVERBOSE
	/*
	 * Avoid nested stack-dumping if a panic occurs during oops processing
	 */
	if (!test_taint(TAINT_DIE) && oops_in_progress <= 1)
		dump_stack();
#endif

It should be possible to do something similar also for backtraces
on all CPUs.

There are more situation when the backtraces are printed and panic()
is called, for example: softlockup_panic and
softlockup_all_cpu_backtrace.

Well, it is just nice to have. People probably will not use these
options together. And it is better to have the backtraces twice
than do not have them at all.

Hi Petr, thanks for your analysis here. Indeed, our use case benefits
from both this and the other patch in the thread you mentioned above -
see [0].

OK, so since this patch is already on linux-next and is relevant for our
use case, how about if we explicitly guard against the double print, as
I suggested in [0]?

Cheers,

Guilherme

Hi Andrew, can I ask you to please remove this patch from linux-next?

It shows here:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/commit/?id=56439cb78293

Baoquan has concerns, and we're discussing that in another thread [0],
after I submit another change on top of this one. So, I guess it's
simpler to just drop it.

My apologies for this, I should have definitely loop the kexec list in
this one , but I forgot.

Cheers,


Guilherme

Hi Stephen / Andrew, sorry for the annoyance, but can you please remove
this patch from linux-next?

Today it shows as commit
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/commit/?id=d691651735f1
- this commit is subject to concern from Baoquan and we are discussing
better ways to achieve that, through a refactor.

Thanks in advance,


Guilherme

Hi Stephen, thanks! I'm still seeing this patch over there, though - I'm
not sure if takes a while to show up in the tree...

Notice this request is only for patch 3/3 in this series - patches 1 and
2 are fine, were reviewed and accepted =)

Cheers,


Guilherme

Andrew did another mmotm release which put it back in.  I have removed
it again for today.

Thanks a bunch! So it seems Andrew needs to remove patch 3 from mmotm right?

Cheers,
