2018-01-19scripts/gdb/linux/tasks.py: fix get_thread_infoXi Kangjie1-0/+2
Since kernel 4.9, the thread_info has been moved into task_struct, no longer locates at the bottom of kernel stack. See commits c65eacbe290b ("sched/core: Allow putting thread_info into task_struct") and 15f4eae70d36 ("x86: Move thread_info into task_struct"). Before fix: (gdb) set $current = $lx_current() (gdb) p $lx_thread_info($current) $1 = {flags = 1470918301} (gdb) p $current.thread_info $2 = {flags = 2147483648} After fix: (gdb) p $lx_thread_info($current) $1 = {flags = 2147483648} (gdb) p $current.thread_info $2 = {flags = 2147483648} Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20180118210159.17223-1-imxikangjie@gmail.com Fixes: 15f4eae70d36 ("x86: Move thread_info into task_struct") Signed-off-by: Xi Kangjie <imxikangjie@gmail.com> Acked-by: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@siemens.com> Acked-by: Kieran Bingham <kbingham@kernel.org> Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2016-05-23scripts/gdb: add lx_thread_info_by_pid helperKieran Bingham1-0/+19
The tasks module already provides helpers to find the task struct by pid, and the thread_info by task struct; however this is cumbersome to utilise on the gdb commandline. Wrap these two functionalities together in an extra single helper to allow exploring the thread info, from a PID value Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/dadc5667f053ec811eb3e3033d99d937fedbc93b.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>

2015-02-17scripts/gdb: use a generator instead of iterator for task listDaniel Wagner1-30/+20
The iterator does not return any task_struct from the thread_group list because the first condition in the 'if not t or ...' will only be the first time None. Instead of keeping track of the state ourself in the next() function, we fall back using Python's generator.

2015-02-17scripts/gdb: port to python3 / gdb7.7Pantelis Koukousoulas1-1/+3
I tried to use these scripts in an ubuntu 14.04 host (gdb 7.7 compiled against python 3.3) but there were several errors. I believe this patch fixes these issues so that the commands now work (I tested lx-symbols, lx-dmesg, lx-lsmod). Main issues that needed to be resolved: * In python 2 iterators have a "next()" method. In python 3 it is __next__() instead (so let's just add both). * In older python versions there was an implicit conversion in object.__format__() (used when an object is in string.format()) where it was converting the object to str first and then calling str's __format__(). This has now been removed so we must explicitly convert to str the objects for which we need to keep this behavior. * In dmesg.py: in python 3 log_buf is now a "memoryview" object which needs to be converted to a string in order to use string methods like "splitlines()". Luckily memoryview exists in python 2.7.6 as well, so we can convert log_buf to memoryview and use the same code in both python 2 and python 3. This version of the patch has now been tested with gdb 7.7 and both python 3.4 and python 2.7.6 (I think asking for at least python 2.7.6 is a reasonable requirement instead of complicating the code with version checks etc).
