[PATCH 09/13] RFC ONLY - powerpc, kgdb: Introduce low level trap catching

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This is a RFC patch.  The work to possibly merge kdb and kgdb is being
evaluated and this patch is considered only a proof of concept or
prototype.

The only way the debugger can handle a trap in inside rcu_lock,
notify_die, or atomic_notifier_call_chain without a recursive fault is
to have a low level "first opportunity handler" low level
program_check_exception() handler.

The other change here is to make sure that kgdb_handle_exception() is
called with correct parameters when catching an oops, because kdb
needs to know if the entry was an oops, single step, or breakpoint
exception.
