      dump_stack: consolidate dump_stack() implementations and unify their behaviors · 196779b9
      Tejun Heo authored
      Both dump_stack() and show_stack() are currently implemented by each
      architecture.  show_stack(NULL, NULL) dumps the backtrace for the
      current task as does dump_stack().  On some archs, dump_stack() prints
      extra information - pid, utsname and so on - in addition to the
      backtrace while the two are identical on other archs.
      
      The usages in arch-independent code of the two functions indicate
      show_stack(NULL, NULL) should print out bare backtrace while
      dump_stack() is used for debugging purposes when something went wrong,
      so it does make sense to print additional information on the task which
      triggered dump_stack().
      
      There's no reason to require archs to implement two separate but mostly
      identical functions.  It leads to unnecessary subtle information.
      
      This patch expands the dummy fallback dump_stack() implementation in
      lib/dump_stack.c such that it prints out debug information (taken from
      x86) and invokes show_stack(NULL, NULL) and drops arch-specific
      dump_stack() implementations in all archs except blackfin.  Blackfin's
      dump_stack() does something wonky that I don't understand.
      
      Debug information can be printed separately by calling
      dump_stack_print_info() so that arch-specific dump_stack()
      implementation can still emit the same debug information.  This is used
      in blackfin.
      
      This patch brings the following behavior changes.
      
      * On some archs, an extra level in backtrace for show_stack() could be
        printed.  This is because the top frame was determined in
        dump_stack() on those archs while generic dump_stack() can't do that
        reliably.  It can be compensated by inlining dump_stack() but not
        sure whether that'd be necessary.
      
      * Most archs didn't use to print debug info on dump_stack().  They do
        now.
      
      An example WARN dump follows.

      v2: CPU number added to the generic debug info as requested by s390
          folks and dropped the s390 specific dump_stack().  This loses %ksp
          from the debug message which the maintainers think isn't important
          enough to keep the s390-specific dump_stack() implementation.
      
          dump_stack_print_info() is moved to kernel/printk.c from
          lib/dump_stack.c.  Because linkage is per objecct file,
          dump_stack_print_info() living in the same lib file as generic
          dump_stack() means that archs which implement custom dump_stack()
          - at this point, only blackfin - can't use dump_stack_print_info()
          as that will bring in the generic version of dump_stack() too.  v1
          The v1 patch broke build on blackfin due to this issue.  The build
          breakage was reported by Fengguang Wu.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
