Test program

When using the attached test program (which is part of syzkaller) results in a lockup of the operating system. I tested this on FreeBSD head r343837 on amd64 and arm64.
Comment 1 Michael Tuexen freebsd_committer 2019-02-08 23:44:03 UTC
The problem was introduced by the change of head/sys/conf/files in base r343746.
Comment 2 Michael Tuexen freebsd_committer 2019-02-09 10:50:16 UTC
The problem is that calling clang with -fsanitize-coverage=trace-pc,trace-cmp -fno-sanitize=all does not turn off the coverage sanitizer.

This can be demonstrated:

tuexen@epyc:~ % cat test.c
int main(void)
	return (0);
tuexen@epyc:~ % cc -fsanitize-coverage=trace-pc,trace-cmp -o test_1.o -c test.c
tuexen@epyc:~ % cc -fsanitize-coverage=trace-pc,trace-cmp -fno-sanitize-coverage=trace-pc,trace-cmp -o test_2.o -c test.c
tuexen@epyc:~ % cc -fsanitize-coverage=trace-pc,trace-cmp -fno-sanitize=all -o test_3.o -c test.c
tuexen@epyc:~ % ls -l test_?.o
-rw-r--r--  1 tuexen  wheel  1928 Feb  9 11:44 test_1.o
-rw-r--r--  1 tuexen  wheel  1016 Feb  9 11:44 test_2.o
-rw-r--r--  1 tuexen  wheel  1928 Feb  9 11:44 test_3.o
tuexen@epyc:~ % diff test_1.o test_3.o

So wither this is a bug in clang or you can't use -fno-sanitize=all to turn off the coverage sanitizers.

  Fix flags used when compiling kern_kcov.c and subr_coverage.c.

  Without this fix, the usage of kernel coverage would lockup the system.
  Thanks to Andrew for suggesting the final form of the fix.
