kallsyms: fix percpu vars on x86-64 with relocation.
x86-64 has a problem: per-cpu variables are actually represented by their absolute offsets within the per-cpu area, but the symbols are not emitted as absolute. Thus kallsyms naively creates them as offsets from _text, meaning their values change if the kernel is relocated (especially noticeable with CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE): $ egrep ' (gdt_|_(stext|_per_cpu_))' /root/kallsyms.nokaslr 0000000000000000 D __per_cpu_start 0000000000004000 D gdt_page 0000000000014280 D __per_cpu_end ffffffff810001c8 T _stext ffffffff81ee53c0 D __per_cpu_offset $ egrep ' (gdt_|_(stext|_per_cpu_))' /root/kallsyms.kaslr1 000000001f200000 D __per_cpu_start 000000001f204000 D gdt_page 000000001f214280 D __per_cpu_end ffffffffa02001c8 T _stext ffffffffa10e53c0 D __per_cpu_offset Making them absolute symbols is the Right Thing, but requires fixes to the relocs tool. So for the moment, we add a --absolute-percpu option which makes them absolute from a kallsyms perspective: $ egrep ' (gdt_|_(stext|_per_cpu_))' /proc/kallsyms # no KASLR 0000000000000000 A __per_cpu_start 000000000000a000 A gdt_page 0000000000013040 A __per_cpu_end ffffffff802001c8 T _stext ffffffff8099b180 D __per_cpu_offset ffffffff809a3000 D __per_cpu_load $ egrep ' (gdt_|_(stext|_per_cpu_))' /proc/kallsyms # With KASLR 0000000000000000 A __per_cpu_start 000000000000a000 A gdt_page 0000000000013040 A __per_cpu_end ffffffff89c001c8 T _stext ffffffff8a39d180 D __per_cpu_offset ffffffff8a3a5000 D __per_cpu_load Based-on-the-original-screenplay-by: Andy Honig <ahonig@google.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au> Acked-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org>
