      kbuild: move -fno-dwarf2-cfi-asm to powerpc only · d0679c73
      Andi Kleen authored
      Better dwarf2 unwind information is a good thing, it allows better
      debugging with kgdb and crash and helps systemtap.
      Commit 00308649 ("Build with
      -fno-dwarf2-cfi-asm") disabled some CFI information globally to work
      around a module loader bug on powerpc.
      But this disables the better unwind tables for all architectures, not just
      powerpc.  Move the workaround to powerpc and also add a suitable comment
      that's it really a workaround.
      This improves dwarf2 unwind tables on x86 at least.

      Hui Zhu authored
      1. Fix a little format issue.
      2. Check the return of "Getopt::Long::GetOptions".  Output usage and
         exit if it get error.
      3. Change $ARGV[$#ARGV] to $ARGV[0].
      4. Change the code which get $modulefile from modinfo.  Replace the
         pipeline with `modinfo -F filename $module`.
      4. Change usage from "Specify the module directory name" to "Specify the
         module filename".

      markup_oops.pl: add options to improve cross-sompilation environments · 52e13e21
      Hui Zhu authored
      The markup_oops.pl have 3 troubles to support cross-compiler environment:
      1.  It use objdump directly.
      2.  It use modinfo to get the message of module.
      3.  It use hex function that cannot support 64-bit number in 32-bit arch.
      This patch add 3 options to markup_oops.pl:
      1. -c CROSS_COMPILE	Specify the prefix used for toolchain.
      2. -m MODULE_DIRNAME	Specify the module directory name.
      3. Change hex function to Math::BigInt->from_hex.
      After this patch, parse the x8664 oops in x86, we can:
      cat amd64m | perl ~/kernel/tmp/m.pl -c /home/teawater/kernel/bin/x8664- -m ./e.ko vmlinux
