Subject: [PATCH 00/11] lockdep: LD_PRELOAD support
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 6th February 2013 22:11:23 UTC (over 3 years ago)
This patch series adds in LD_PRELOAD support for liblockdep.

We store lockdep_map in an rb-tree and hook the pthread_mutex/
pthread_rwlock calls, allowing us to add lockdep testing on
any program without touching it's source code.

The first couple of patches remove the need for lockdep_init
and lockdep_set_thread, as well as some fixes for several
tests.

The other patches add rbtree and LD_PRELOAD support, along
with testing for that.

The last patch adds a small script that wraps all of it, making
testing really simple:

	liblockdep perf [perf command line]

There is a case where it won't work well: some programs, such
as firefox, hook malloc() and add a pthread_mutex lock in the
allocation path, which recurses back into our liblockdep code.

To solve that I'm planning to add a local cache to allocate
from when liblockdep detects recursion onto itself, but that's
outside of the scope of this patch.

Instead of taking the perf in this series another option would
be to just revert the existing perf patch from me in core/locking,
which would mean perf would just work with the new LD_PRELOAD
feature.
