Subjectkswapd0 oops -> debug information
Hi all,

I keep getting this oops so randomly, that 'RIGHT, YOU BUGGER' I have
attempted to supply proper debug info - where I have got is what I learnt
today, so I am a bit stuck after finding the area of code.

ksymoops provides:

Code; c015124d <__iget+3d/4c>
3f: 89 .byte 0x89

I have traced this code to fs/inode.c. Producing assembler of inode.c gives
this (snipped):

pushl %ebx
movl 8(%esp),%ebx
movl 28(%ebx),%eax
testl %eax,%eax
je .L3337
incl 28(%ebx)
jmp .L3336
.p2align 4,,7
incl 28(%ebx)
testb $15,284(%ebx)
jne .L3340
leal 8(%ebx),%edx
movl 4(%edx),%ecx
movl 8(%ebx),%eax
movl %ecx,4(%eax)
movl %eax,(%ecx) <===== >>EIP; c0151239 <__iget+29/4c>
movl inode_in_use,%eax
movl %edx,4(%eax)
movl %eax,8(%ebx)
movl $inode_in_use,4(%edx)
movl %edx,inode_in_use

Which quiet nicely matches the ksymoops output. My books tell me the inode.s
file _should_ give me line numbers in inode.c so I can then locate area of
code - but I can't see how to match the produced assembler to the C source.

Hope this helps someone - and if you know who to get assembler code to match C
code via line numbers, I would like to know please.
