python script to check for bad cfi in a binary (1.76 KB, text/plain)

Description Mark Wielaard 2010-05-07 10:05:58 UTC
Description of problem:

An old version of gcc generated bad dwarf cfi expressions. This would not impact the functioning of the package itself, but might make debugging the binary with gdb, or tracing with systemtap less practical. This isn't a very high priority. But if the package can be rebuild with a current toolchain, gcc-4.4.3-19.el6 or later, that would solve this issue. Background information: http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2010-04/msg01422.html This only affects a very small number of packages (and only the i686 binaries).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

yp-tools-2.9-9.el6.i686 (/usr/bin/yppasswd, /usr/bin/ypchfn, /usr/bin/ypchsh)

The attached check_cfi.py script (thanks to Petr Machata) can be used to check the output of readelf --debug-dump=frames to see whether the faulty dwarf cfi expressions are present in the binary. There should be no output, currently the output is:
