SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] riscv: Add KASAN support
Hi Christoph,

Thanks for your reply. I will answer one by one.

Hi Alexander,

Would you help me for the question about SOFTIRQENTRY_TEXT?

Other archs like arm64 and x86 allocate modules in their module region.

You're right, always enable it would be better.

I made some mistakes on this porting, this would be better:

#define __HAVE_ARCH_MEMSET
extern asmlinkage void *memset(void *, int, size_t);
extern asmlinkage void *__memset(void *, int, size_t);

#define __HAVE_ARCH_MEMCPY
extern asmlinkage void *memcpy(void *, const void *, size_t);
extern asmlinkage void *__memcpy(void *, const void *, size_t);

#define __HAVE_ARCH_MEMMOVE
extern asmlinkage void *memmove(void *, const void *, size_t);
extern asmlinkage void *__memmove(void *, const void *, size_t);

#if defined(CONFIG_KASAN) && !defined(__SANITIZE_ADDRESS__)

#define memcpy(dst, src, len) __memcpy(dst, src, len)
#define memmove(dst, src, len) __memmove(dst, src, len)
#define memset(s, c, n) __memset(s, c, n)

#endif

Nope, I would remove the '#ifdef CONFIG_KASAN', and do the logic in the header
instead.

There is a commit for it:

Author: Alexander Potapenko <glider@google.com>
Date: Fri Mar 25 14:22:05 2016 -0700

arch, ftrace: for KASAN put hard/soft IRQ entries into separate sections

KASAN needs to know whether the allocation happens in an IRQ handler.
This lets us strip everything below the IRQ entry point to reduce the
number of unique stack traces needed to be stored.

Move the definition of __irq_entry to <linux/interrupt.h> so that the
users don't need to pull in <linux/ftrace.h>. Also introduce the
__softirq_entry macro which is similar to __irq_entry, but puts the
corresponding functions to the .softirqentry.text section.

After reading the patch I understand that soft/hard IRQ entries should be
separated for KASAN to work, but why?

Alexender, do you have any comments on this?
