ftrace/x86: Fix triple fault with graph tracing and suspend-to-ram
commit 34a477e5297cbaa6ecc6e17c042a866e1cbe80d6 upstream. On x86-32, with CONFIG_FIRMWARE and multiple CPUs, if you enable function graph tracing and then suspend to RAM, it will triple fault and reboot when it resumes. The first fault happens when booting a secondary CPU: startup_32_smp() load_ucode_ap() prepare_ftrace_return() ftrace_graph_is_dead() (accesses 'kill_ftrace_graph') The early head_32.S code calls into load_ucode_ap(), which has an an ftrace hook, so it calls prepare_ftrace_return(), which calls ftrace_graph_is_dead(), which tries to access the global 'kill_ftrace_graph' variable with a virtual address, causing a fault because the CPU is still in real mode. The fix is to add a check in prepare_ftrace_return() to make sure it's running in protected mode before continuing. The check makes sure the stack pointer is a virtual kernel address. It's a bit of a hack, but it's not very intrusive and it works well enough. For reference, here are a few other (more difficult) ways this could have potentially been fixed: - Move startup_32_smp()'s call to load_ucode_ap() down to *after* paging is enabled. (No idea what that would break.) - Track down load_ucode_ap()'s entire callee tree and mark all the functions 'notrace'. (Probably not realistic.) - Pause graph tracing in ftrace_suspend_notifier_call() or bringup_cpu() or __cpu_up(), and ensure that the pause facility can be queried from real mode.
