      parisc: Fix backtrace on PA-RISC · be24a897
      Mikulas Patocka authored
      This patch fixes backtrace on PA-RISC
      There were several problems:
      1) The code that decodes instructions handles instructions that subtract
      from the stack pointer incorrectly. If the instruction subtracts the
      number X from the stack pointer the code increases the frame size by
      (0x100000000-X).  This results in invalid accesses to memory and
      recursive page faults.
      2) Because gcc reorders blocks, handling instructions that subtract from
      the frame pointer is incorrect. For example, this function
      	int f(int a)
      		if (__builtin_expect(a, 1))
      			return a;
      		return a;
      is compiled in such a way, that the code that decreases the stack
      pointer for the first "return a" is placed before the code for "g" call.
      If we recognize this decrement, we mistakenly believe that the frame
      size for the "g" call is zero.
      To fix problems 1) and 2), the patch doesn't recognize instructions that
      decrease the stack pointer at all. To further safeguard the unwind code
      against nonsense values, we don't allow frame size larger than
      3) The backtrace is not locked. If stack dump races with module unload,
      invalid table can be accessed.
      This patch adds a spinlock when processing module tables.
      Note, that for correct backtrace, you need recent binutils.
      Binutils 2.18 from Debian 5 produce garbage unwind tables.
      Binutils 2.21 work better (it sometimes forgets function frames, but at
      least it doesn't generate garbage).
