Subject[PATCH 5.0 056/238] tracing: Use strncpy instead of memcpy for string keys in hist triggers
Date
5.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com>

commit 9f0bbf3115ca9f91f43b7c74e9ac7d79f47fc6c2 upstream.

Because there may be random garbage beyond a string's null terminator,
it's not correct to copy the the complete character array for use as a
hist trigger key. This results in multiple histogram entries for the
'same' string key.

So, in the case of a string key, use strncpy instead of memcpy to
avoid copying in the extra bytes.

Before, using the gdbus entries in the following hist trigger as an
example:

# echo 'hist:key=comm' > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_waking/trigger
# cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_waking/hist

...

{ comm: ImgDecoder #4 } hitcount: 203
{ comm: gmain } hitcount: 213
{ comm: gmain } hitcount: 216
{ comm: StreamTrans #73 } hitcount: 221
{ comm: mozStorage #3 } hitcount: 230
{ comm: gdbus } hitcount: 233
{ comm: StyleThread#5 } hitcount: 253
{ comm: gdbus } hitcount: 256
{ comm: gdbus } hitcount: 260
{ comm: StyleThread#4 } hitcount: 271

...

# cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_waking/hist | egrep gdbus | wc -l
51

After:

# cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_waking/hist | egrep gdbus | wc -l
1
