Description Dmitry Vyukov 2018-01-10 14:27:46 UTC
KASAN currently does not instrument atomic operations implemented in assembly. They can lead to silent, undetected memory corruptions. It should.
There is a reference patch for this:
It was even merged once, but then reverted. Need to update and resubmit.

Atomic operations are done in a35353bb9eb19.
But we also need to handle bitops as lots of them are in asm.
Comment 2 Dmitry Vyukov 2018-09-13 12:45:45 UTC
FTR, here is an old bitops patch:
Most likely needs to be all redone now, but at least can serve as a base list of what needs to be instrumented.
