2013-01-03pstore: remove __dev* attributes.Greg Kroah-Hartman2-13/+10
CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option. As a result, the __dev* markings need to be removed. This change removes the use of __devinit from the pstore filesystem. Based on patches originally written by Bill Pemberton, but redone by me in order to handle some of the coding style issues better, by hand.

2012-11-26efi_pstore: Add a sequence counter to a variable nameSeiji Aguchi4-14/+16
[Issue] Currently, a variable name, which identifies each entry, consists of type, id and ctime. But if multiple events happens in a short time, a second/third event may fail to log because efi_pstore can't distinguish each event with current variable name. [Solution] A reasonable way to identify all events precisely is introducing a sequence counter to the variable name. The sequence counter has already supported in a pstore layer with "oopscount". So, this patch adds it to a variable name. Also, it is passed to read/erase callbacks of platform drivers in accordance with the modification of the variable name. <before applying this patch> a variable name of first event: dump-type0-1-12345678 a variable name of second event: dump-type0-1-12345678 type:0 id:1 ctime:12345678 If multiple events happen in a short time, efi_pstore can't distinguish them because variable names are same among them. <after applying this patch> it can be distinguishable by adding a sequence counter as follows. a variable name of first event: dump-type0-1-1-12345678 a variable name of Second event: dump-type0-1-2-12345678 type:0 id:1 sequence counter: 1(first event), 2(second event) ctime:12345678 In case of a write callback executed in pstore_console_write(), "0" is added to an argument of the write callback because it just logs all kernel messages and doesn't need to care about multiple events.

2012-11-26efi_pstore: Add ctime to argument of erase callbackSeiji Aguchi2-2/+3
[Issue] Currently, a variable name, which is used to identify each log entry, consists of type, id and ctime. But an erase callback does not use ctime. If efi_pstore supported just one log, type and id were enough. However, in case of supporting multiple logs, it doesn't work because it can't distinguish each entry without ctime at erasing time. <Example> As you can see below, efi_pstore can't differentiate first event from second one without ctime. a variable name of first event: dump-type0-1-12345678 a variable name of second event: dump-type0-1-23456789 type:0 id:1 ctime:12345678, 23456789 [Solution] This patch adds ctime to an argument of an erase callback. It works across reboots because ctime of pstore means the date that the record was originally stored. To do this, efi_pstore saves the ctime to variable name at writing time and passes it to pstore at reading time.

2012-11-14pstore: Fix NULL pointer dereference in console writesColin Ian King1-1/+2
Passing a NULL id causes a NULL pointer deference in writers such as erst_writer and efi_pstore_write because they expect to update this id. Pass a dummy id instead.

2012-09-06pstore/ftrace: Convert to its own enable/disable debugfs knobAnton Vorontsov4-1/+103
With this patch we no longer reuse function tracer infrastructure, now we register our own tracer back-end via a debugfs knob. It's a bit more code, but that is the only downside. On the bright side we have: - Ability to make persistent_ram module removable (when needed, we can move ftrace_ops struct into a module). Note that persistent_ram is still not removable for other reasons, but with this patch it's just one thing less to worry about; - Pstore part is more isolated from the generic function tracer. We tried it already by registering our own tracer in available_tracers, but that way we're loosing ability to see the traces while we record them to pstore. This solution is somewhere in the middle: we only register "internal ftracer" back-end, but not the "front-end"; - When there is only pstore tracing enabled, the kernel will only write to the pstore buffer, omitting function tracer buffer (which, of course, still can be enabled via 'echo function > current_tracer').

write_buf() should be marked as notrace, otherwise it is prone to recursion. Though, yet the issue is never triggered in real life, because we run inside the function tracer, where ftrace does its own recurse protection.

2012-08-04pstore/ram: Fix possible NULL dereferenceAnton Vorontsov1-6/+7
We can dereference 'cxt->cprz' if console and dump logging are disabled (which is unlikely, but still possible to do). This patch fixes the issue by changing the code so that we don't dereference przs at all, we can just calculate bufsize from console_size and record_size values. Plus, while at it, the patch improves the buffer size calculation. After Kay's printk rework, we know the optimal buffer size for console logging -- it is LOG_LINE_MAX (defined privately in printk.c). Previously, if only console logging was enabled, we would allocate unnecessary large buffer in pstore, while we only need LOG_LINE_MAX. (Pstore console logging is still capable of handling buffers > LOG_LINE_MAX, it will just do multiple calls to psinfo->write). Note that I don't export the constant, since we will do even a better thing soon: we will switch console logging to a new write_buf API, which will eliminate the need for the additional buffer; and so we won't need the constant.

2012-07-17pstore/ram: Make tracing log versionedAnton Vorontsov2-10/+15
Decoding the binary trace w/ a different kernel might be troublesome since we convert addresses to symbols. For kernels with minimal changes, the mappings would probably match, but it's not guaranteed at all. (But still we could convert the addresses by hand, since we do print raw addresses.) If we use modules, the symbols could be loaded at different addresses from the previously booted kernel, and so this would also fail, but there's nothing we can do about it. Also, the binary data format that pstore/ram is using in its ringbuffer may change between the kernels, so here we too must ensure that we're running the same kernel. So, there are two questions really: 1. How to compute the unique kernel tag; 2. Where to store it. In this patch we're using LINUX_VERSION_CODE, just as hibernation (suspend-to-disk) does. This way we are protecting from the kernel version mismatch, making sure that we're running the same kernel version and patch level. We could use CRC of a symbol table (as suggested by Tony Luck), but for now let's not be that strict. And as for storing, we are using a small trick here. Instead of allocating a dedicated buffer for the tag (i.e. another prz), or hacking ram_core routines to "reserve" some control data in the buffer, we are just encoding the tag into the buffer signature (and XOR'ing it with the actual signature value, so that buffers not needing a tag can just pass zero, which will result into the plain old PRZ signature).

2012-06-20pstore/ram: Probe as early as possibleAnton Vorontsov2-35/+37
Registering the platform driver before module_init allows us to log oopses that happen during device probing. This requires changing module_init to postcore_initcall, and switching from platform_driver_probe to platform_driver_register because the platform device is not registered when the platform driver is registered; and because we use driver_register, now can't use create_bundle() (since it will try to register the same driver once again), so we have to switch to platform_device_register_data(). Also, some __init -> __devinit changes were needed. Overall, the registration logic is now much clearer, since we have only one driver registration point, and just an optional dummy device, which is created from the module parameters.

2012-06-13pstore/platform: Disable automatic updates by defaultAnton Vorontsov1-2/+4
Having automatic updates seems pointless for production system, and even dangerous and thus counter-productive: 1. If we can mount pstore, or read files, we can as well read /proc/kmsg. So, there's little point in duplicating the functionality and present the same information but via another userland ABI; 2. Expecting the kernel to behave sanely after oops/panic is naive. It might work, but you'd rather not try it. Screwed up kernel can do rather bad things, like recursive faults[1]; and pstore rather provoking bad things to happen. It uses: 1. Timers (assumes sane interrupts state); 2. Workqueues and mutexes (assumes scheduler in a sane state); 3. kzalloc (a working slab allocator); That's too much for a dead kernel, so the debugging facility itself might just make debugging harder, which is not what we want. Maybe for non-oops message types it would make sense to re-enable automatic updates, but so far I don't see any use case for this. Even for tracing, it has its own run-time/normal ABI, so we're only interested in pstore upon next boot, to retrieve what has gone wrong with HW or SW. So, let's disable the updates by default.

2012-06-13pstore/ram_core: Remove now unused codeAnton Vorontsov1-77/+0
The code tried to maintain the global list of persistent ram zones, which isn't a great idea overall, plus since Android's ram_console is no longer there, we can remove some unused functions.

2012-06-13pstore/ram_core: Silence some printksAnton Vorontsov1-2/+2

2012-06-13pstore/ram: Factor ramoops_get_next_prz() out of ramoops_pstore_read()Anton Vorontsov1-9/+32
This will help make code clearer when we'll add support for other message types. The patch also changes return value from -EINVAL to 0 in case of end-of-records. The exact value doesn't matter for pstore (it should be just <= 0), but 0 feels more correct.

This will help make code clearer when we'll add support for other message types. This also makes probe() much shorter and understandable, plus makes mem/record size checking a bit easier. Implementation detail: we now use a paddr pointer, this will be used for allocating persistent ram zones for other message types.

2012-06-13pstore: Add console log messages supportAnton Vorontsov3-0/+47
Pstore doesn't support logging kernel messages in run-time, it only dumps dmesg when kernel oopses/panics. This makes pstore useless for debugging hangs caused by HW issues or improper use of HW (e.g. weird device inserted -> driver tried to write a reserved bits -> SoC hanged. In that case we don't get any messages in the pstore. Therefore, let's add a runtime logging support: PSTORE_TYPE_CONSOLE.

2012-06-13pstore/inode: Make pstore_fill_super() staticAnton Vorontsov1-1/+1

2012-06-13pstore/ram: Should update old dmesg buffer before readingAnton Vorontsov2-7/+10
Without the update, we'll only see the new dmesg buffer after the reboot, but previously we could see it right away. Making an oops visible in pstore filesystem before reboot is a somewhat dubious feature, but removing it wasn't an intentional change, so let's restore it. For this we have to make persistent_ram_save_old() safe for calling multiple times, and also extern it.

This is a first step for adding ECC support for pstore RAM backend: we will use the persistent_ram routines, kindly provided by Google. Basically, persistent_ram is a set of helper routines to deal with the [optionally] ECC-protected persistent ram regions. A bit of Makefile, Kconfig and header files adjustments were needed because of the move.
