2016-05-23scripts/gdb: add a Radix Tree ParserKieran Bingham-0/+7
Linux makes use of the Radix Tree data structure to store pointers indexed by integer values. This structure is utilised across many structures in the kernel including the IRQ descriptor tables, and several filesystems. This module provides a method to lookup values from a structure given its head node. Usage: The function lx_radix_tree_lookup, must be given a symbol of type struct radix_tree_root, and an index into that tree. The object returned is a generic integer value, and must be cast correctly to the type based on the storage in the data structure. For example, to print the irq descriptor in the sparse irq_desc_tree at index 18, try the following: (gdb) print (struct irq_desc)$lx_radix_tree_lookup(irq_desc_tree, 18) Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/d2028c55e50cf95a9b7f8ca0d11885174b0cc709.1462865983.git.jan.kiszka@siemens.com Signed-off-by: Kieran Bingham <kieran.bingham@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@siemens.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2016-05-23scripts/gdb: add mount point list commandKieran Bingham-0/+20
lx-mounts will identify current mount points based on the 'init_task' namespace by default, as we do not yet have a kernel thread list implementation to select the current running thread. Optionally, a user can specify a PID to list from that process' namespace Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/e614c7bc32d2350b4ff1627ec761a7148e65bfe6.1462865983.git.jan.kiszka@siemens.com Signed-off-by: Kieran Bingham <kieran.bingham@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@siemens.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2016-05-23scripts/gdb: provide linux constantsKieran Bingham-0/+32
Some macro's and defines are needed when parsing memory, and without compiling the kernel as -g3 they are not available in the debug-symbols. We use the pre-processor here to extract constants to a dedicated module for the linux debugger extensions Top level Kbuild is used to call in and generate the constants file, while maintaining dependencies on autogenerated files in include/generated Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/bc3df9c25f57ea72177c066a51a446fc19e2c27f.1462865983.git.jan.kiszka@siemens.com Signed-off-by: Kieran Bingham <kieran.bingham@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@siemens.com> Cc: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
