2016-05-23scripts/gdb: improve types abstraction for gdb python scriptsDom Cote1-2/+15
Change the read_u16 function so it accepts both 'str' and 'byte' as type for the arguments. When calling read_memory() from gdb API, depending on if it was built with 2.7 or 3.X, the format used to return the data will differ ( 'str' for 2.7, and 'byte' for 3.X ). Add a function read_memoryview() to be able to get a 'memoryview' object back from read_memory() both with python 2.7 and 3.X . Tested with python 3.4 and 2.7 Tested with gdb 7.7 Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/73621f564503137a002a639d174e4fb35f73f462.1462865983.git.jan.kiszka@siemens.com Signed-off-by: Dom Cote <buzdelabuz2+git@gmail.com> Tested-by: Kieran Bingham <kieran@bingham.xyz> (Py2.7,Py3.4,GDB10) Signed-off-by: Kieran Bingham <kieran@bingham.xyz> 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 exception catching parserKieran Bingham1-0/+7
If we attempt to read a value that is not available to GDB, an exception is raised. Most of the time, this is a good thing; however on occasion we will want to be able to determine if a symbol is available. By catching the exception to simply return None, we can determine if we tried to read an invalid value, without the exception taking our execution context away from us Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/c72b25c06fc66e1d68371154097e2cbb112555d8.1462865983.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: port to python3 / gdb7.7Pantelis Koukousoulas1-1/+1
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).

2015-02-17scripts/gdb: add get_gdbserver_type helperJan Kiszka1-0/+35
This helper probes the type of the gdb server. Supported are QEMU and KGDB so far. Knowledge about the gdb server is required e.g. to retrieve the current CPU or current task.

2015-02-17scripts/gdb: add container_of helper and convenience functionJan Kiszka1-0/+35
Provide an internal helper with container_of semantics. As type lookups are very slow in gdb-python and we need a type "long" for this, cache the reference to this type object. Then export the helper also as a convenience function form use at the gdb command line.

2015-02-17scripts/gdb: add cache for type objectsJan Kiszka1-0/+34
Type lookups are very slow in gdb-python which is often noticeable when iterating over a number of objects. Introduce the helper class CachedType that keeps a reference to a gdb.Type object but also refreshes it after an object file has been loaded.
