[Crash-utility] Crash in crash



Hi Dave

 

I have a vmcore file for ARM64 that crashes Crash during startup. The core file is created at a hardware watchdog (I believe) so there is no panic message or something similar in the log.

 

This is the printout from Crash running under gdb, after the copyrights and config information:

 

please wait... (determining panic task)        

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

(gdb) p tt->last_tgid

$1 = (struct tgid_context *) 0x0

 

Source code for tgid_quick_search:

static struct tgid_context *

tgid_quick_search(ulong tgid)

{

                           struct tgid_context *last, *next;

 

                           tt->tgid_searches++;

 

                           last = tt->last_tgid;

                           if (tgid == last->tgid) {

                                                       tt->tgid_cache_hits++;

                                                       return last;

                           }

  ....

}

 

So 'last' becomes 0 which causes the crash.

 

After some more investigation I have seen that "tt->last_tgid" is initialized in function sort_tgid_array in task.c, but that function seems to be called at a later stage.

 

By adding a line in tgid_quick_search:

 

static struct tgid_context *

tgid_quick_search(ulong tgid)

{

                           struct tgid_context *last, *next;

 

                           tt->tgid_searches++;

 

                           if (tt->last_tgid == 0) sort_tgid_array(); // added line

                           last = tt->last_tgid;

                           if (tgid == last->tgid) {

                                                       tt->tgid_cache_hits++;

                                                       return last;

                           }

  ...

 

I can run Crash on this core file. However I do not know if this is the best way to fix the problem.
