Description Sevan Janiyan 2016-07-26 17:42:54 UTC
Executing the following one liner on a Raspberry Pi (type B, 256MB RAM) results in a Translation Fault (L1) error & the system reboots

dtrace -n 'fbt:kernel:*_interrupt:entry { @m[execname] = count() }'

Comment 1 Sevan Janiyan 2016-07-29 21:15:07 UTC
Issue is not specific to the PI though I appears that on the PI the reboot is immediate upon executing dtrace whereas on a BeagleBone Black (mine is a Rev A5C) dtrace appears to run for some time before producing the same error & rebooting

dtrace: description 'fbt:kernel:*_interrupt:entry ' matched 5 probes
dtrace: buffer size lowered to 2m
dtrace: aggregation size lowered to 2m

  Use the kernel stack in the ARM FBT DTrace provider. This is used to find
  the fifth argument to functions being traced, however there was an error
  where the userspace stack was being used. This may be invalid leading to
  a kernel panic if this address is unmapped.
