# c3676b54 13-Apr-2010 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

* Added vm_debug_copy_page_memory() which copies memory from a potentially not
mapped page.
* debug_{mem,strl}cpy():
- Added "team" parameter for specifying the address space the address are
to be interpreted in.
- When the standard memcpy() (with fault handler) fails, fall back to
vm_debug_copy_page_memory().
* Added debug_is_debugged_team(): Predicate returning true, if the supplied
team_id refers to the same team debug_get_debugged_thread() belongs to.
* Added DebuggedThreadSetter class for scope-based debug_set_debugged_thread().
Made use of it in several debugger functions.
* print_demangled_call() (x86): Fixed unsafe memory access.

Allows KDL stack traces to work correctly again, even if the page daemon has
already unmapped the concerned pages.

previous argument.

# ea2abd11 02-Aug-2009 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

* Renamed the ROUNDOWN macro to ROUNDDOWN. Also changed the implementation of
ROUNDUP to use '*' and '/' -- the compiler will optimize that for powers of
two anyway and this implementation works for other numbers as well.
* The thread::fault_handler use in C[++] code was broken with gcc 4. At least
when other functions were invoked. Trying to trick the compiler wasn't a
particularly good idea anyway, since the next compiler version could break
the trick again. So the general policy is to use the fault handlers only in
assembly code where we have full control. Changed that for x86 (save for the
vm86 mode, which has a similar mechanism), but not for the other
architectures.
* Introduced fault_handler, fault_handler_stack_pointer, and fault_jump_buffer
fields in the cpu_ent structure, which must be used instead of
thread::fault_handler in the kernel debugger. Consequently user_memcpy() must
not be used in the kernel debugger either. Introduced a debug_memcpy()
instead.
* Introduced debug_call_with_fault_handler() function which calls a function
in a setjmp() and fault handler context. The architecture specific backend
arch_debug_call_with_fault_handler() has only been implemented for x86 yet.
* Introduced debug_is_kernel_memory_accessible() for use in the kernel
debugger. It determines whether a range of memory can be accessed in the
way specified. The architecture specific back end
arch_vm_translation_map_is_kernel_page_accessible() has only been implemented
for x86 yet.
* Added arch_debug_unset_current_thread() (only implemented for x86) to unset
the current thread pointer in the kernel debugger. When entering the kernel
debugger we do some basic sanity checks of the currently set thread structure
and unset it, if they fail. This allows certain commands (most importantly
the stack trace command) to avoid accessing the thread structure.
* x86: When handling a double fault, we do now install a special handler for
page faults. This allows us to gracefully catch faulting commands, even if
e.g. the thread structure is toast.

We are now in much better shape to deal with double faults. Hopefully avoiding
the triple faults that some people have been experiencing on their hardware
and ideally even allowing to use the kernel debugger normally.

# 360d4974 02-Jun-2009 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Replaced the temporary storage used in the kernel debug command parser. We now
have a simple dedicated heap for the kernel debugger with stacked allocation
pools (deleting a pool frees all memory allocated in it). The heap should
eventually be used for all commands that need temporary storage too large for
the stack instead of each using its own static buffer.

# b9f431f1 24-Aug-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Extended debugger language: Dereferenced addresses are now supported as
left hand side of assignments. IOW it is possible to modify memory, now.

# 18f2a9c1 24-Aug-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Added support for architecture specific debug variables, e.g. for
referencing iframe registers. Their prefix is "$". E.g. "$eax" refers to
the eax register of the current iframe. The features cooperates with the
"in_context" command, i.e. "in_context 92 $eip = 0" will set the eip
register of thread 92 to 0 (thus sealing its fate ;-)).

# 0deddbe3 22-Aug-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Added function parse_next_debug_command_argument(), which parses the
first command line argument of a given command line string.

# 73aa393d 31-May-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

* Introduced pipes in the kernel debugger. The syntax is similar to
pipes in the shell, though the semantics is a little different: The
second command is invoked whenever the first command has written a
complete line. The line is passed as last argument to the second
command. The new command flag B_KDEBUG_PIPE_FINAL_RERUN causes the
second command to be invoked again (with NULL argument) after the
first command is done.
* Added kprintf_unfiltered() and kputs_unfiltered() which bypass the
pipe mechanism and directly print to the bluescreen/serial output.
* Moved most commands from debug.cpp to the new
debug_builtin_commands.cpp.
* B_KDEBUG_DONT_PARSE_ARGUMENTS commands don't get an argument anymore,
if it would consist of white space only.
* Added new debugger command return value B_KDEBUG_ERROR, which
indicates that executing the command failed. This return code will
abort a complete pipe.
* Since debugger commands can nest (i.e. one command can invoke another
one) the setjmp()/longjmp() mechanism to restore the stack after a
page fault in a command needs more than one jump buffer.
* Added abort_debugger_command(), which longjmp()s out of the currently
executed command. This will also abort the current pipe.
* When pagination is enabled pressing "a" will abort the running command
(as opposed to "q" which only disables the blue screen output, but
lets the command continue).
* Added debugger commands:
- "grep" which can be used to filter output by pattern. Removed the
"filter" command and the underlying mechanism that did that before.
- "head" which prints only the first lines of output of another
command.
- "wc" counts lines, words, and characters of another command's
output.

# 325b88a6 21-Jan-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

* Introduced debugger command flag B_KDEBUG_DONT_PARSE_ARGUMENTS.
For commands with this flag set, the parser won't parse the
arguments provided (it will only check for matching parentheses and
brackets), but will pass the unparsed argument list string to the
command instead.
* Set the new flag for the "expr" command, so one doesn't have to quote
the expression to evaluate anymore (or put it in parentheses).
* Fixed tokenizing of quoted and unquoted strings in expression mode.

# 0bf73dd2 21-Jan-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Increased the maximum number of command line arguments to a more
comfortable number. Somewhat more complex "traced" filter expressions
tended to exceed the old limit easily.

# 42a5ea09 19-Jan-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Oops, "f" is a hex digit, too. Hex numbers with "f" in them work again
in the kernel debugger.

# b9074efc 16-Jan-2008 Axel Dörfler <axeld@pinc-software.de>

* Fixed the "vnodes" KDL command when called without any arguments.
* Fixed the usage text of the "help" KDL command.
* Made the "ambiguous command" warning shorter, so that it will still fit in
the exception buffer.

# 5c62817c 15-Jan-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Added unary "*" operator for dereferencing addresses to the
debugger expression language. By default it reads a uint32 value.
Another target size (1, 2, 4, or 8 bytes) can be specified in braces
after the "*" (e.g. "*{2}address" for uint16).

# 3b4fa166 15-Jan-2008 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

* Implemented parse_expression(). The back-end is an expression parser
that is a little more powerful than BeOS'. It features:
- Persistent and temporary uint64 variables. The former kind is set
only by the user. The latter (those prefixed "_") can be set
automatically by commands, thus e.g. making it easier to access
members of a dumped structure. They are unset when the next command
is invoked. The special temporary variable "_" is defined as a
command's return value.
- Expressions can contain nested command invocations using brackets
("[ ... ]").
- Command lines are parsed by the expression parser, too. They can
contain command invocations (in brackets) and expressions (in
parentheses).
* Added debugger commands:
- expr: Evaluates the given expression and prints the result.
- unset: Undefines a variable.
- vars: Prints the values of all defined variables.
* Moved debugger command code into its own source file.
