[ASAN] ASAN is not properly calling libbacktrace to symbolize program
Needs ReviewPublic

There could be a situation when .debug_info has
valid file/line data but doesn't has a dwarf tag
(DW_TAG_subprogram) which represents function address
and name, in this case libbacktrace can not read
symbol info from .debug_info but can read this info from
syminfo table.

This doesn't look correct to me. Why do we bail out if function is not NULL? Shouldn't we use (!function && cdata->frames_symbolized > 0) istead? Also please include more context into the patch (git diff -U999999) or something like that.

Thanks, my fault.

Hm, still can't get this. As far as I can understand, this callback is called before SymbolizeCodeCallback and cdata->frames_symbolized > 0 becomes true only if somewhere before we executed line 121 where we have function != NULL. So, the situation with (!function && cdata->frames_symbolized > 0) corresponds to inlined calls (when multiple locations correspond to one PC), right? But in this case, won't we miss filename and lineno for that inlined functions? Or perhaps I'm missing something?

Thanks for question.

This fix cover situation with code written on assembler as it mentioned in PR sanitizer/81081

In this case we don't have any information about inlined this function or not, because we don't have specific debug info generated by compiler. All debug info generated by "as" and for that reason doesn't contain any tag which represents function (DW_TAG_subprogram).

In other case this code

if (function == NULL && cdata->frames_symbolized)

cover situation with function was inlined and we can't find valid address

I've filed an alternative patch for the same problem here ( ), hoping that the alternative patch will address the concerns raised in this review.
