/* When we analyze a prologue, we're really doing 'abstract | |

interpretation' or 'pseudo-evaluation': running the function's code | |

in simulation, but using conservative approximations of the values | |

it would have when it actually runs. For example, if our function | |

starts with the instruction: | |

addi r1, 42 # add 42 to r1 | |

we don't know exactly what value will be in r1 after executing this | |

instruction, but we do know it'll be 42 greater than its original | |

value. | |

If we then see an instruction like: | |

addi r1, 22 # add 22 to r1 | |

we still don't know what r1's value is, but again, we can say it is | |

now 64 greater than its original value. | |

If the next instruction were: | |

mov r2, r1 # set r2 to r1's value | |

then we can say that r2's value is now the original value of r1 | |

plus 64. | |

It's common for prologues to save registers on the stack, so we'll | |

need to track the values of stack frame slots, as well as the | |

registers. So after an instruction like this: | |

mov (fp+4), r2 | |

then we'd know that the stack slot four bytes above the frame | |

pointer holds the original value of r1 plus 64. | |

And so on. | |

Of course, this can only go so far before it gets unreasonable. If | |

we wanted to be able to say anything about the value of r1 after | |

the instruction: | |

xor r1, r3 # exclusive-or r1 and r3, place result in r1 | |

then things would get pretty complex. But remember, we're just | |

doing a conservative approximation; if exclusive-or instructions | |

aren't relevant to prologues, we can just say r1's value is now | |

'unknown'. We can ignore things that are too complex, if that loss | |

of information is acceptable for our application. | |

So when I say "conservative approximation" here, what I mean is an | |

approximation that is either accurate, or marked "unknown", but | |

never inaccurate. | |

Once you've reached the current PC, or an instruction that you | |

don't know how to simulate, you stop. Now you can examine the | |

state of the registers and stack slots you've kept track of. | |

- To see how large your stack frame is, just check the value of the | |

stack pointer register; if it's the original value of the SP | |

minus a constant, then that constant is the stack frame's size. | |

If the SP's value has been marked as 'unknown', then that means | |

the prologue has done something too complex for us to track, and | |

we don't know the frame size. | |

- To see where we've saved the previous frame's registers, we just | |

search the values we've tracked --- stack slots, usually, but | |

registers, too, if you want --- for something equal to the | |

register's original value. If the ABI suggests a standard place | |

to save a given register, then we can check there first, but | |

really, anything that will get us back the original value will | |

probably work. | |

Sure, this takes some work. But prologue analyzers aren't | |

quick-and-simple pattern patching to recognize a few fixed prologue | |

forms any more; they're big, hairy functions. Along with inferior | |

function calls, prologue analysis accounts for a substantial | |

portion of the time needed to stabilize a GDB port. So I think | |

it's worthwhile to look for an approach that will be easier to | |

understand and maintain. In the approach used here: | |

- It's easier to see that the analyzer is correct: you just see | |

whether the analyzer properly (albiet conservatively) simulates | |

the effect of each instruction. | |

- It's easier to extend the analyzer: you can add support for new | |

instructions, and know that you haven't broken anything that | |

wasn't already broken before. | |

- It's orthogonal: to gather new information, you don't need to | |

complicate the code for each instruction. As long as your domain | |

of conservative values is already detailed enough to tell you | |

what you need, then all the existing instruction simulations are | |

already gathering the right data for you. | |
