Subject[2.6.20.16 review 26/28] i386: fix infinite loop with singlestep int80 syscalls
The commit 635cf99a80f4ebee59d70eb64bb85ce829e4591f introduced a
regression. Executing a ptrace single step after certain int80
accesses will infinitely loop and never advance the PC.

The TIF_SINGLESTEP check should be done on the return from the syscall
and not before it.

The new test case is below:

/* Test whether singlestep through an int80 syscall works.
*/
#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <sys/ptrace.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>
#include <sys/mman.h>
#include <asm/user.h>
#include <string.h>
static int child, status;
static struct user_regs_struct regs;

static void do_child()
{
char str[80] = "child: int80 test
";
ptrace(PTRACE_TRACEME, 0, 0, 0);
kill(getpid(), SIGUSR1);
write(fileno(stdout),str,strlen(str));
asm ("int $0x80" : : "a" (20)); /* getpid */
}
static void do_parent()
{
unsigned long eip, expected = 0;
again:
waitpid(child, &status, 0);
if (WIFEXITED(status) || WIFSIGNALED(status))
return;
if (WIFSTOPPED(status)) {
ptrace(PTRACE_GETREGS, child, 0, &regs);
eip = regs.eip;
if (expected)
fprintf(stderr, "child stop @ %08lx, expected %08lx %s
",
eip, expected,
eip == expected ? "" : " <== ERROR");
if (*(unsigned short *)eip == 0x80cd) {
fprintf(stderr, "int 0x80 at %08x
", (unsigned int)eip);
expected = eip + 2;
} else
expected = 0;
ptrace(PTRACE_SINGLESTEP, child, NULL, NULL);
}
goto again;
}
int main(int argc, char * const argv[])
{
child = fork();
if (child)
do_parent();
else
do_child();
return 0;
}
