Subject: [RFC PATCH v3 0/6] uprobes: return probe implementation
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 28th February 2013 11:00:09 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Hello,

  RFC v3 uretprobes implementation. I'd be grateful for review.

  These patches extending uprobes by enabling tools, such as
perf(trace_event),
set a breakpoint on probed function's return address. 

v3 changes:
  - removed uretprobe_bypass logic, it will be better to send it as
    independent patch
  - unified xol_get_trampoline_slot() and xol_get_insn_slot()
  - protected uprobe with refcounter in prepare_uretprobe()
  - uprobe_register() routine fails now, if neither consumer is set
  - enclosed implementation into 1/6, 6/6 patches -ENOSYS bits

v2 changes:
  - introduced rp_handler(), get rid of return_consumers
  - get rid of uretprobe_[un]register()
  - introduced arch_uretprobe_get_sp()
  - removed uprobe_task->doomed, kill task immediately
  - fix arch_uretprobe_hijack_return_addr()'s returns
  - address the v1 minor issues

integrated patchset:

previous implementations:
  RFCv2: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/1/9/157
  RFCv1: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/21/133

thanks,
Anton

  uretprobes: preparation patch
  uretprobes/x86: hijack return address
  uretprobes: generalize xol_get_insn_slot()
  uretprobes: return probe entry, prepare uretprobe
  uretprobes: invoke return probe handlers
  uretprobes: implemented, thus remove -ENOSYS
