Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 53/64] powerpc/vdso: Correct call frame information
Date
From: Alan Modra <amodra@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 56d20861c027498b5a1112b4f9f05b56d906fdda ]

Call Frame Information is used by gdb for back-traces and inserting
breakpoints on function return for the "finish" command. This failed
when inside __kernel_clock_gettime. More concerning than difficulty
debugging is that CFI is also used by stack frame unwinding code to
implement exceptions. If you have an app that needs to handle
asynchronous exceptions for some reason, and you are unlucky enough to
get one inside the VDSO time functions, your app will crash.

What's wrong: There is control flow in __kernel_clock_gettime that
reaches label 99 without saving lr in r12. CFI info however is
interpreted by the unwinder without reference to control flow: It's a
simple matter of "Execute all the CFI opcodes up to the current
address". That means the unwinder thinks r12 contains the return
address at label 99. Disabuse it of that notion by resetting CFI for
the return address at label 99.

Note that the ".cfi_restore lr" could have gone anywhere from the
"mtlr r12" a few instructions earlier to the instruction at label 99.
I put the CFI as late as possible, because in general that's best
practice (and if possible grouped with other CFI in order to reduce
the number of CFI opcodes executed when unwinding). Using r12 as the
return address is perfectly fine after the "mtlr r12" since r12 on
that code path still contains the return address.

__get_datapage also has a CFI error. That function temporarily saves
lr in r0, and reflects that fact with ".cfi_register lr,r0". A later
use of r0 means the CFI at that point isn't correct, as r0 no longer
contains the return address. Fix that too.
