Subject[PATCH 1/4] scripts/faddr2line: fix "size mismatch" error
Date
I'm not sure how we missed this problem before.  When I take a function
address and size from an oops and give it to faddr2line, it usually
complains about a size mismatch:

$ scripts/faddr2line ~/k/vmlinux write_sysrq_trigger+0x51/0x60
skipping write_sysrq_trigger address at 0xffffffff815731a1 due to size mismatch (0x60 != 83)
no match for write_sysrq_trigger+0x51/0x60

The problem is caused by differences in how kallsyms and faddr2line
determine a function's size.

kallsyms calculates a function's size by parsing the output of 'nm -n'
and subtracting the next function's address from the current function's
address. This means that nop instructions after the end of the function
are included in the size.

In contrast, faddr2line reads the size from the symbol table, which does
*not* include the ending nops in the function's size.

Change faddr2line to calculate the size from the output of 'nm -n' to be
consistent with kallsyms and oops outputs.
