Prefer _THIS_IP_ defined in linux/kernel.h.

Most definitions of current_text_addr were the same as _THIS_IP_, but
a few archs had inline assembly instead.

This patch removes the final call site of current_text_addr, making all
of the definitions dead code.

I suspect that current_text_addr predated GNU C extensions for statement
expressions and/or taking the address of a label, then the macro was
reimplemented for every new archs include/asm/processor.h, even though
there were very few call sites, and none required an assembly
implementation vs the C implementation.

I am sad to see a few neat arch specific ways of getting the ip/pc, but
we should prefer the higher level C in cases where assembly is not
required. And the definitions can always be found again in git history.

Currently alpha, s390, sparc, sh, c6x, ia64 and parisc provide an
inline assembly function to get the current instruction pointer. 
As mentioned in an earlier thread, I personally would *prefer* if 
_THIS_IP_ would use those inline assembly instructions on those
architectures instead of the (currently used) higher C-level
implementation.

I actually have this very dim memory that we had some compiler issues
where a label in the code resulted in gcc generating worse code
elsewhere in that same function.

But current_text_addr() predates both the git and the BK history, so
it's all shrouded in antiquity, and even if my dim recollection is
true, it may not be true any more. There aren't so many call sites
that it is likely to matter anyway.

Older ones have as well, e.g. x86.

The only reason to retain the use of an assembly function would be in
the case where either:

a) the C implementation produces bad or invalid code on certain
   architectures;
b) there is a specific requirement that either an absolute or a relative
   value is used in the binary, e.g. due to constraints on relocation.
   The latter particularly comes to mind since the x86-64 implementation
   in assembly will produce movq $.,%reg (which requires relocation)
   instead of the more natural leaq .(%rip),%reg.

In the case (a) those architectures ought to be able to simply

#undef _THIS_IP_
#define _THIS_IP_ blah...

and in case (b) *those specific instances* should be using some kind of
specially flagged function e.g. current_true_ip() vs.
current_linktime_ip() or somesuch.

I also note that a lot of those functions are not marked
__always_inline, which is a serious error should the compiler ever get
the idea to out-of-line these functions, which could potentially happen
as gcc is rather bad at assigning weight to an assembly statement.

I'm also going to throw in a perhaps ugly bomb into this discussion:

_THIS_IP_ seems to be horribly ill-defined; there is no kind of
serialization, and no reason to believe it can't be arbitrarily hoisted
inside a function. Furthermore, *most of the uses of _THIS_IP_ seem to
be either discarded or passed to a function*, and the location of a
function call, unlike _THIS_IP_ is very well defined.

In that case, the use of this mechanism is completely pointless and
ought to be replaced with _RET_IP_.  It seems like most invocations of
_THIS_IP_ can be trivially replaced with _RET_IP_ inside the function,
which would also reduce the footprint of the function call, for example:

__trace_puts() is only ever called with _THIS_IP_ as the first argument;
drop that argument and use _RET_IP_ inside the function (also,
__trace_puts() only ever uses strlen() as the third argument, which gcc
can of course optimize into a constant for the case of a consta t
string, but *is that optimization actually worth it*?  In the case of
__trace_puts(), a variable strlen() would only ever need to be called in
the case of an allocation actually happening -- otherwise str is never
examined -- and again, it increases the *code size* of the call site.
If it was worthwhile it would make more sense to at least force this
into the rodata section with the string, something like the attached
file for an example; however, I have a hunch it doesn't matter.

I wouldn't be surprised if all or nearly all instances of _THIS_IP_ can
be completely removed.

OK, so one more thing, I guess: it is necessary to suppress the tailcall
optimization for _RET_IP_ to make any sense, but that should be pretty
simple:

So while I agree that some _THIS_IP_ users might be better off being
converted to __builtin_return_address(0) at the caller, I also think
that the whole "notailcall" thing shows why that can easily be more
problematic than just our currnet _THIS_IP_ solution.

Honestly, I'd suggest:

 - just do the current_text_addr() to _THIS_IP_ conversion

 - keep _THIS_IP_ and make it be the generic one, and screw the whole
"some architectures might implement is better" issue. Nobody cares.

 - try to convince people to move away from the "we want the kernel
instruction pointer for the call" model entirely, and consider this a
"legacy" issue.

The whole instruction pointer is a nasty thing. We should discourage
it and not make complex infrastructure for it.

Instead, maybe we could encourage something like

  struct kernel_loc { const char *file; const char *fn; int line; };

  #define __GEN_LOC__(n) \
        ({ static const struct kernel_loc n = { \
                __FILE__, __FUNCTION__, __LINE__  \
           }; &n; })

  #define _THIS_LOC_ __GEN_LOC__(__UNIQUE_ID(loc))

which is a hell of a lot nicer to use, and actually allows gcc to
optimize things (try it: if you pass a _THIS_LOC_ off to an inline
function, and that inline function uses the name and line number, gcc
will pick them up directly, without the extra structure dereference.

Wouldn't it be much nicer to pass these kinds of "location pointer"
around, rather than the nasty _THIS_IP_ thing?

Certainly lockdep looks like it could easily take that "const struct
kernel_loc *" instead of "unsigned long ip". Makes it easy to print
out the lockdep info.

Ok, I didn't try to convert anybody, so maybe people who currently use
_THIS_IP_ or current_text_addr() have some fundamental reason why they
want just that, but let's not male _THIS_IP_ more complex than it
needs to be.

Hmm?

Incidentally, it looks like _RET_IP_ really should be defined as:


/*
 * Is there any reason whatsoever to have _RET_IP_ an unsigned int
 * rather than a pointer throughout?
 */

#define _RET_IP_PTR_ \
	__builtin_extract_return_addr(__builtin_return_addr(0))
#define _RET_IP_ ((unsigned long)_RET_IP_PTR_)

On some architectures __builtin_extract_return_addr() is apparently
necessary; its a nop on x86.  Why that isn't part of
__builtin_return_addr() one can really wonder.

So, checking into all of this, the generic _THIS_IP_ DOES NOT WORK on
x86.  I have tried a tons of variants, including adding various asm
volatile(...) instructions, and no matter what I do, it will always
return the address of the surrounding function rather than any kind of
local IP.  The only way to get a localized address seems to be in
assembly, but even so, there is absolutely no guarantee that the value
of _THIS_IP_ has anything to do with where the code is otherwise
localized in the function.

From examining the output of gcc, the fundamental problem seems to be
that *no matter what* one do with the label, unless gcc actually
produces a computed goto somewhere in the code, that it can't remove
with dead-code elimination or constant propagation, it will arbitrarily
hoist the labels all the way to the beginning of the function. Given
that, I suspect that other versions of gcc might have similar problems.

This is the closest thing to arch-neutral I have been able to find that
also works on x86, while not at the same time horribly polluting the
namespace:

#define __here(n) ___here_ ## n
#define __hereasm(n) ".L___here_" #n
#define _THIS_IP_CTR_(n)					\
	({							\
		extern const char __here(n) asm(__hereasm(n));	\
		asm volatile(__hereasm(n) ": /* _THIS_IP_ */"); \
		(unsigned long)&__here(n);			\
	})
#define _THIS_IP_ _THIS_IP_CTR_(__COUNTER__)

The use of asm volatile() to define a label means that the position in
the instruction stream is at least reasonably well-defined.

And mention it to the compiler vendors as this seems like a case where
code gen can be improved.

Yes, please.  I think we should strive for simplicity here.

This is extremely reasonable.  I can follow up with the lockdep folks
to see if they really need _THIS_IP_ to solve their problem, or if
there's a simpler solution that can solve their needs.  Sometimes
taking a step back and asking for clarity around the big picture
allows simpler solutions to shake out.

What problem are we trying to solve? _THIS_IP_ and _RET_IP_ work fine.
We're 'good' at dealing with text addresses, we use them for call stacks
and all sorts. Why does this need changing?

Seems nice. Do you even need this unique ID thing? AFAIKS the name
would never really be useful.

It could perhaps go into a cold data section too, I assume the common
case is that you do not access it. Although gcc will end up putting
the file and function names into regular rodata.

Possibly we could add a printk specifier for it, pass it through to
existing BUG, etc macros that want exactly this, etc. Makes a lot of
sense.

Thanks,
Nick

_RET_IP_ works fine, with the following two caveats:

1. To get a unique IP for each call site, the function call needs to be
   tailcall protected (easily done by wrapping the function in an
  __always_inline function with the notailcall() function I described
  earlier.  Alternatively, a generic macro wrapper for the same thing:

  #define notailcall(x) ({ typeof(x) _x = (x); asm volatile("");  _x; })

2. To uniformly get the return IP, it needs to be defined as:

#define _RET_IP_((unsigned long) \
__builtin_extract_return_addr(__builtin_return_address(0)))

[sorry for the line wrapping]

Using the type unsigned long instead of void * seems kind of pointless
though.


_THIS_IP_, however, is completely ill-defined, other than being an
address *somewhere* in the same global function (not even necessarily
the same function if the function is static!)  As my experiment show, in
many (nearly) cases gcc will hoist the address all the way to the top of
the function, at least for the current generic implementation.

For the case where _THIS_IP_ is passed to an out-of-line function in all
cases, it is extra pointless because all it does is increase the
footprint of every caller: _RET_IP_ is inherently passed to the function
anyway, and with tailcall protection it will uniquely identify a callsite.

For the case where _THIS_IP_ is used inline, I believe the version I
described will at the very least avoid hoisting around volatile accesses
like READ_ONCE(). Surrounding the marked code with asm volatile("");
[which should be turned into a macro or inline, obviously] might be
necessary for it to make any kind of inherent sense.

The proposed "location identifier" does have a serious problem: with
inline functions you might very well have a bunch of duplicates pointing
into the inline function, so a single callsite isn't identifiable.

It seems to have mostly worked so far... did anything change?

So I think we can convert many of the lockdep _THIS_IP_ calls to
_RET_IP_ on the other side, with a wee bit of care.

A little something like so perhaps...

Most likely because the major architectures contain a arch-specific
assembly implementation.  The generic implementation used in some places
is completely broken, as my experiments show.

I don't have time to look at this right now (I'm on sabbatical, and I'm
dealing with personal legal stuff right at the moment), but I think it
is the right direction.
