[PATCH 1/3] uprobes: install_breakpoint() should fail if is_swbp_insn() == T

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


install_breakpoint() returns -EEXIST if is_swbp_insn(orig_insn) == T,
the caller treats this code as success.

This is doubly wrong. The successful return should set UPROBE_COPY_INSN,
but the real problem is that it shouldn't succeed. If the probed insn is
int3 the application should get SIGTRAP, this won't happen with uprobe.

Probably we can fix this, we can add the UPROBE_SHARED_BP flag and teach
handle_swbp/set_orig_insn to handle this case correctly. But this needs
some complications and we have other insns which can't be probed, lets
make a simple fix for now.

I think this needs a cleanup. UPROBE_COPY_INSN should die, copy_insn()
should be called by alloc_uprobe(). arch_uprobe_analyze_insn() depends
on ->mm (ia32_compat) but it is called only once.
