Subject[PATCHv2 0/3] Handle SETEND for AArch32 tasks
Date
From: "Suzuki K. Poulose" <suzuki.poulose@arm.com>

This series add support for controlling the 'setend' instruction,
which is deprecated in ARMv8, using the legacy instruction emulation
framework, introduced by Punit Agrawal.


Changes since V1:
- Added a patch to keep track of the mixed endian support and register
the setend emulation only if all the active CPUs supports mixed endian.
- Fail hotplug operation if the CPU doesn't support a feature
required by insn_emulation.
- Signal handler runs in native endian

Testing :

$ cat setend_sig.c
#include <stdio.h>
#include <signal.h>

#define setend_be(a) asm __volatile__ ( "setend be" ::: "memory" )
#define setend_le(a) asm __volatile__ ( "setend le" ::: "memory" )

volatile int flag = 1;

void sigint(int sig)
{
printf("in sighandler %d\n", sig);
flag = 0;
return;
}

main()
{
volatile int a = 0x0;

(void)signal(SIGINT, sigint);
printf("Press Ctrl+C to continue\n");
setend_be();
a ++;

while (flag);

setend_le();
a ++;

printf("a: 0x%x\n", a);
return 0;
}
$ cat /proc/sys/abi/setend
1
$ echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/emulation/instruction_emulation/enable
$ echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/tracing_on
$ ./setend_sig_a32
Press Ctrl+C to continue
^Cin sighandler 2
a: 0x1000001
$ cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace
