crash - kernel debugging utility, allowing gdb like syntax
crash (6.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version 6.0.2
* Implemention of a new "arguments-input-file" feature, where an input file
containing crash command arguments may be iteratively fed to a crash
command. For each line of arguments in an input file, the selected crash
command will be executed.
* Many thanks to Josef Bacik for proposing this feature.
* Fix for the "runq" command for kernels configured with
CONFIG_FAIR_GROUP_SCHED. Without the patch, it is possible that a task
may be listed twice in a cpu's CFS runqueue.
* Fix for the internal parse_line() function to properly handle the case
where the first argument in a line is a string argument that is
encapulated with quotation marks.
* Fix for the usage of gzip'd vmlinux file that was compressed with "gzip
-n" or "gzip --no-name" without using "-f" on the command line. Without
the patch, the crash session fails with an error message that indicates
"crash: <string-containing-garbage>: compressed file name does not start
with vmlinux". With the patch, if such a file is used without "-f", it
will be accepted with a message that indicates that the original filename
is unknown, and a suggestion that "-f" be used to prevent the message.
* Added a new "mod -g" option that enhances the symbol display for kernel
modules. After loading a module's debuginfo data, the module object's
section addresses will be shown as pseudo-symbols.
* Fix for the "gdb" command to prevent the option handling of command lines.
Without the patch, a gdb command string that contained a "-<character>"
pair preceded by whitespace, would fail with the error message "gdb: gdb:
invalid option -- <character>".
* Fix for the panic-task determination if a dumpfile is taken on a system
that actually has a cpu count that is equal to its per-arch NR_CPUS value.
Without the patch, the task running on the cpu whose number is equal to
NR_CPUS-1 would be selected.
* Fix for the x86_64 "bt" command to handle a recursive entry into the NMI
exception stack. While this should normally never happen, it is possible
if, for example, a kprope is entered into a function that gets executed
during NMI handling, and a second NMI is received after the initial one,
corrupting the original exception frame at the top of the NMI stack.
Without the patch, the NMI stack backtrace and exception frame would be
displayed repeatedly; with the patch, the backtrace and exception frame
are followed by the warning message "NMI exception stack recursion: prior
stack location overwritten".
* Support dumpfiles that are created by the PPC64 Firmware Assisted Dump
facility, also known as "fadump" or "FAD". Without the patch, the panic
task cannot be determined from a fadump vmcore which was subsequently
compressed with makedumpfile, and therefore a proper backtrace of the
panic task cannot be generated.
* Preparation for new s390x kernels that will increase MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS from
42 to 46.
