Subject[PATCH 13/13] tracing/uprobes: Add support for full argument access methods
Date
From: Namhyung Kim <namhyung.kim@lge.com>

Enable to fetch other types of argument for the uprobes. IOW, we can
access stack, memory, deref, bitfield and retval from uprobes now.

The format for the argument types are same as kprobes (but @SYMBOL
type is not supported for uprobes), i.e:

@ADDR : Fetch memory at ADDR
$stackN : Fetch Nth entry of stack (N >= 0)
$stack : Fetch stack address
$retval : Fetch return value
+|-offs(FETCHARG) : Fetch memory at FETCHARG +|- offs address

Note that the retval only can be used with uretprobes.

+ (u8/u16/u32/u64/s8/s16/s32/s64), "string" and bitfield
+ are supported.
+
+ (*) only for return probe.
+ (**) this is useful for fetching a field of data structures.
+
+Types
+-----
+Several types are supported for fetch-args. Uprobe tracer will access memory
+by given type. Prefix 's' and 'u' means those types are signed and unsigned
+respectively. Traced arguments are shown in decimal (signed) or hex (unsigned).
+String type is a special type, which fetches a "null-terminated" string from
+user space.
+Bitfield is another special type, which takes 3 parameters, bit-width, bit-
+offset, and container-size (usually 32). The syntax is;
+
+ b<bit-width>@<bit-offset>/<container-size>
