objtool: Handle GCC stack pointer adjustment bug
Arnd Bergmann reported the following warning with GCC 7.1.1: fs/fs_pin.o: warning: objtool: pin_kill()+0x139: stack state mismatch: cfa1=7+88 cfa2=7+96 And the kbuild robot reported the following warnings with GCC 5.4.1: fs/fs_pin.o: warning: objtool: pin_kill()+0x182: return with modified stack frame fs/quota/dquot.o: warning: objtool: dquot_alloc_inode()+0x140: stack state mismatch: cfa1=7+120 cfa2=7+128 fs/quota/dquot.o: warning: objtool: dquot_free_inode()+0x11a: stack state mismatch: cfa1=7+112 cfa2=7+120 Those warnings are caused by an unusual GCC non-optimization where it uses an intermediate register to adjust the stack pointer. It does: lea 0x8(%rsp), %rcx ... mov %rcx, %rsp Instead of the obvious: add $0x8, %rsp It makes no sense to use an intermediate register, so I opened a GCC bug to track it: https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=81813 But it's not exactly a high-priority bug and it looks like we'll be stuck with this issue for a while. So for now we have to track register values when they're loaded with stack pointer offsets. This is kind of a big workaround for a tiny problem, but c'est la vie. I hope to eventually create a GCC plugin to implement a big chunk of objtool's functionality. Hopefully at that point we'll be able to remove of a lot of these GCC-isms from the objtool code.
