From: "David A. Long" <dave.long at linaro.org>
This patchset is heavily based on Sandeepa Prabhu's ARM v8 kprobes patches, first
seen in October 2013. This version attempts to address concerns raised by
reviewers and also fixes problems discovered during testing, particularly during
This patchset adds support for kernel probes(kprobes), jump probes(jprobes)
and return probes(kretprobes) support for ARM64.
Kprobes mechanism makes use of software breakpoint and single stepping
support available in the ARM v8 kernel.
Changes since v2 include:
1) Removal of NOP padding in kprobe XOL slots. Slots are now exactly one
2) Disabling of interrupts during execution in single-step mode.
3) Fixing of numerous problems in instruction simulation code.
4) Support for the HAVE_REGS_AND_STACK_ACCESS_API feature is added, to allow
access to kprobes through debugfs.
5) kprobes is *not* enabled in defconfig.
6) Numerous complaints from checkpatch have been cleaned up, although a couple
remain as removing the function pointer typedefs results in ugly code.
