Subject[PATCH v2 0/6] bpf: correct broken uapi for BPF_PROG_TYPE_PERF_EVENT program type
Date
Perf tool bpf selftests revealed a broken uapi for s390 and arm64.
With the BPF_PROG_TYPE_PERF_EVENT program type the bpf_perf_event
structure exports the pt_regs structure for all architectures.

This fails for s390 and arm64 because pt_regs are not part of the
user api and kept in-kernel only. To mitigate the broken uapi,
introduce a wrapper that exports pt_regs in an asm-generic way.
For arm64, export the exising user_pt_regs structure. For s390,
introduce a user_pt_regs structure that exports the beginning of
pt_regs.

Note that user_pt_regs must export from the beginning of pt_regs
as BPF_PROG_TYPE_PERF_EVENT program type is not the only type for
running BPF programs.

Some more background:
For the bpf_perf_event, there is a uapi definition that is
passed to the BPF program. For other "probe" points like
trace points, kprobes, and uprobes, there is no uapi and the
BPF program is always passed pt_regs (which is OK as the BPF
program runs in the kernel context). The perf tool can attach
BPF programs to all of these "probe" points and, optionally,
can create a BPF prologue to access particular arguments
(passed as registers). For this, it uses DWARF/CFI
information to obtain the register and calls a perf-arch
backend function, regs_query_register_offset(). This function
returns the index into (user_)pt_regs for a particular
register. Then, perf creates a BPF prologue that accesses
this register based on the passed stucture from the "probe"
point.

Part of this series, are also updates to the testing and bpf selftest
to deal with asm-specifics. To complete the bpf support in perf, the
the regs_query_register_offset function is added for s390 to support
BPF prologue creation.

Changelog v1 -> v2:
- Correct kbuild test bot issues by including
asm-generic/bpf_perf_event.h for archictectures that do not have
their own asm version.
- Added patch to clean-up whitespace and coding style issues in s390
asm/ptrace.h (#4/6) as suggested by Alexei.
