Default crash mod -S problem

Hi Dave, and company,

I have a question. Perhaps this is a known issue -- should I be looking
in an archive somewhere?

The crash command "mod -S" is messing up the address list.

This is crash-4.0-7.6, running on ia64.

Note how the value of module symbol xfs_ioerror_alert has changed
after the mod -S.

Is this a crash problem? Or my problem? (there are several ?'s in
the mod -S output, including on the xfs module)

Good question -- I don't know.

It appears that the determination of the module's text starting location
is being changed by the "mod -S". That can happen when the symbols.c
function store_load_module_symbols() calls calculate_load_order_v2(),
which can change the text start location that was initialized during
the crash session initialization by store_module_symbols_v2().

The question is which text start address value is correct.

Try this:

$ crash -s
crash> help -s | grep mod_text_start > before
crash> mod -S
... [ snip ] ...
crash> help -s | grep mod_text_start > after
crash> q

$ diff before after

Typically it won't change, and the before and after files are identical.

But on your system it would appear that many (if not all) of the modules are
changing their mod_text_start values upon running "mod -S".

You can also determine which value is correct by doing a "dis <function>"
command before and after the "mod -S".

Yes, we were doing a "dis" when we noticed the problem. The addresses
are correct before the mod -S.

So you suspect the problem is in calculate_load_order_v2() ?

If the text was correct *before* the "mod -S", then yes, the
text base address was changed by calculate_load_order_v2().

My first response started a cc: to Castor Fu, the author of
calculate_load_order_v2() function, because I'd be interested
in what he has to say on the matter. He's on west coast time.

As I understand it, calculate_load_order_v2() is taking the
first (lowest) symbol of each module section (as determined
during initialization), and searches for it in the module
object file. And when it finds it, it calls bfd_get_section_name()
to get the section name string, and based upon that updates the
fields associated with that section. For the .text section it
normally finds the first text symbol to have an offset value of 0,
and therefore no changes are made to the mod_text_offset. It looks
like it's finding the "first" text symbol at a higher offset?

If you enter "set debug 3", and then do a "mod -s <module-name>",
you'll see its machinations on a given module.

Default crash mod -S problem

Sorry, I have been away from this crash stuff for a while and
am catching up on work after having been sick for a week.
I can hopefully look at this later this evening...

If the text was correct *before* the "mod -S", then yes, the
text base address was changed by calculate_load_order_v2().

My first response started a cc: to Castor Fu, the author of
calculate_load_order_v2() function, because I'd be interested
in what he has to say on the matter. He's on west coast time.

As I understand it, calculate_load_order_v2() is taking the
first (lowest) symbol of each module section (as determined
during initialization), and searches for it in the module
object file. And when it finds it, it calls bfd_get_section_name()
to get the section name string, and based upon that updates the
fields associated with that section. For the .text section it
normally finds the first text symbol to have an offset value of 0,
and therefore no changes are made to the mod_text_offset. It looks
like it's finding the "first" text symbol at a higher offset?

If you enter "set debug 3", and then do a "mod -s <module-name>",
you'll see its machinations on a given module.
