2016-11-12work around gdb issues recognizing sigreturn trampoline on x86_64Rich Felker-4/+3
gdb can only backtrace/unwind across signal handlers if it recognizes the sa_restorer trampoline. for x86_64, gdb first attempts to determine the symbol name for the function in which the program counter resides and match it against "__restore_rt". if no name can be found (e.g. in the case of a stripped binary), the exact instruction sequence is matched instead. when matching the function name, however, gdb's unwind code wrongly considers the interval [sym,sym+size] rather than [sym,sym+size). thus, if __restore_rt begins immediately after another function, gdb wrongly identifies pc as lying within the previous adjacent function. this patch adds a nop before __restore_rt to preclude that possibility. it also removes the symbol name __restore and replaces it with a macro since the stability of whether gdb identifies the function as __restore_rt or __restore is not clear. for the no-symbols case, the instruction sequence is changed to use %rax rather than %eax to match what gdb expects. based on patch by Szabolcs Nagy, with extended description and corresponding x32 changes added.
2015-04-18remove potentially PIC-incompatible relocations from x86_64 and x32 asmRich Felker-2/+2
analogous to commit 8ed66ecbcba1dd0f899f22b534aac92a282f42d5 for i386.
2015-04-17redesign sigsetjmp so that signal mask is restored after longjmpRich Felker-9/+16
the conventional way to implement sigsetjmp is to save the signal mask then tail-call to setjmp; siglongjmp then restores the signal mask and calls longjmp. the problem with this approach is that a signal already pending, or arriving between unmasking of signals and restoration of the saved stack pointer, will have its signal handler run on the stack that was active before siglongjmp was called. this can lead to unbounded stack usage when siglongjmp is used to leave a signal handler. in the new design, sigsetjmp saves its own return address inside the extended part of the sigjmp_buf (outside the __jmp_buf part used by setjmp) then calls setjmp to save a jmp_buf inside its own execution. it then tail-calls to __sigsetjmp_tail, which uses the return value of setjmp to determine whether to save the current signal mask or restore a previously-saved mask. as an added bonus, this design makes it so that siglongjmp and longjmp are identical. this is useful because the __longjmp_chk function we need to add for ABI-compatibility assumes siglongjmp and longjmp are the same, but for different reasons -- it was designed assuming either can access a flag just past the __jmp_buf indicating whether the signal masked was saved, and act on that flag. however, early versions of musl did not have space past the __jmp_buf for the non-sigjmp_buf version of jmp_buf, so our setjmp cannot store such a flag without risking clobbering memory on (very) old binaries.

2013-04-22fix reversed argument order x86_64 sigsetjmp's call to sigprocmaskRich Felker-2/+2
this caused sigsetjmp not to save the signal mask but instead to clobber it with whatever happened to be in the sigjmb_buf prior to the call.

2011-06-14restore use of .type in asm, but use modern @function (vs %function)Rich Felker-0/+3
this seems to be necessary to make the linker accept the functions in a shared library (perhaps to generate PLT entries?) strictly speaking libc-internal asm should not need it. i might clean that up later.
2011-06-13remove all .size and .type directives for functions from the asmRich Felker-5/+0
these are useless and have caused problems for users trying to build with non-gnu tools like tcc's assembler.
