[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 0/5] enhance lock debugging

Posted by Juergen Gross 1 week ago
While hunting a locking problem in my core scheduling series I have
added some debugging aids to spinlock handling making it easier to
find the root cause for the problem.

Making use of the already existing lock profiling and enhancing it a
little bit produces some really valuable diagnostic data e.g. when a
NMI watchdog is triggering a crash.

Changes in V4:
- some comments by Jan Beulich addressed
- replaced patch 5 with another approach to make lock names unique

Changes in V3:
- rebase to current staging (after realizing that patch 4 still
  applied, but resulting in patching a wrong function)

Changes in V2:
- multiple comments addressed
- added patch 5

Juergen Gross (5):
  xen/spinlocks: in debug builds store cpu holding the lock
  xen: add new CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCKS option
  xen: print lock profile info in panic()
  xen: modify lock profiling interface
  xen: add function name to lock profiling data
