2020-09-28kgdb: Honour the kprobe blocklist when setting breakpointsDaniel Thompson1-0/+9
Currently kgdb has absolutely no safety rails in place to discourage or prevent a user from placing a breakpoint in dangerous places such as the debugger's own trap entry/exit and other places where it is not safe to take synchronous traps. Introduce a new config symbol KGDB_HONOUR_BLOCKLIST and modify the default implementation of kgdb_validate_break_address() so that we use the kprobe blocklist to prohibit instrumentation of critical functions if the config symbol is set. The config symbol dependencies are set to ensure that the blocklist will be enabled by default if we enable KGDB and are compiling for an architecture where we HAVE_KPROBES.

2018-01-25kdb: bl: don't use tab character in outputRandy Dunlap1-2/+2
The "bl" (list breakpoints) command prints a '\t' (tab) character in its output, but on a console (video device), that just prints some odd graphics character. Instead of printing a tab character, just align the output with spaces.

2016-02-22mm/init: Add 'rodata=off' boot cmdline parameter to disable read-only kernel ↵Kees Cook1-3/+1
mappings It may be useful to debug writes to the readonly sections of memory, so provide a cmdline "rodata=off" to allow for this. This can be expanded in the future to support "log" and "write" modes, but that will need to be architecture-specific. This also makes KDB software breakpoints more usable, as read-only mappings can now be disabled on any kernel. Suggested-by: H.

2014-11-11kdb: Categorize kdb commands (similar to SysRq categorization)Daniel Thompson1-7/+14
This patch introduces several new flags to collect kdb commands into groups (later allowing them to be optionally disabled). This follows similar prior art to enable/disable magic sysrq commands. The commands have been categorized as follows: Always on: go (w/o args), env, set, help, ?, cpu (w/o args), sr, dmesg, disable_nmi, defcmd, summary, grephelp Mem read: md, mdr, mdp, mds, ef, bt (with args), per_cpu Mem write: mm Reg read: rd Reg write: go (with args), rm Inspect: bt (w/o args), btp, bta, btc, btt, ps, pid, lsmod Flow ctrl: bp, bl, bph, bc, be, bd, ss Signal: kill Reboot: reboot All: cpu, kgdb, (and all of the above), nmi_console Signed-off-by: Daniel Thompson <daniel.thompson@linaro.org> Cc: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>

2014-10-14kdb: replace strnicmp with strncasecmpRasmus Villemoes1-3/+3
The kernel used to contain two functions for length-delimited, case-insensitive string comparison, strnicmp with correct semantics and a slightly buggy strncasecmp. The latter is the POSIX name, so strnicmp was renamed to strncasecmp, and strnicmp made into a wrapper for the new strncasecmp to avoid breaking existing users. To allow the compat wrapper strnicmp to be removed at some point in the future, and to avoid the extra indirection cost, do s/strnicmp/strncasecmp/g.

2012-03-22kdb: Add message about CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA on failure to install breakpointJason Wessel1-0/+7
On x86, if CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA is set, one cannot set breakpoints via KDB. Apparently this is a well-known problem, as at least one distribution now ships with both KDB enabled and CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA=y for security reasons. This patch adds an printk message to the breakpoint failure case, in order to provide suggestions about how to use the debugger.

2010-05-20kdb: core for kgdb back end (1 of 2)Jason Wessel1-0/+564
This patch contains only the kdb core. Because the change set was large, it was split. The next patch in the series includes the instrumentation into the core kernel which are mainly helper functions for kdb. This work is directly derived from kdb v4.4 found at: ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/kdb/download/v4.4/ The kdb internals have been re-organized to make them mostly platform independent and to connect everything to the debug core which is used by gdbstub (which has long been known as kgdb). The original version of kdb was 58,000 lines worth of changes to support x86. From that implementation only the kdb shell, and basic commands for memory access, runcontrol, lsmod, and dmesg where carried forward. This is a generic implementation which aims to cover all the current architectures using the kgdb core: ppc, arm, x86, mips, sparc, sh and blackfin. More archictectures can be added by implementing the architecture specific kgdb functions.
