Description Dmitry Vyukov 2019-06-24 10:52:51 UTC
This is related to CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS but may be relevant for other debug configs as well. We should use lib/stackdepot.c (CONFIG_STACKDEPOT) in more debugging facilities to memorize full stack traces. stackdepot maps a full stack trace to an u32 (i.e. smaller than memorizing a single PC).

In particular come up in the context of:

which contains just:

------------[ cut here ]------------ 
ODEBUG: free active (active state 0) object type: timer_list hint: 
delayed_work_timer_fn+0x0/0x90 arch/x86/include/asm/paravirt.h:767 

and then Thomas says:

"One of the cleaned up devices has left an active timer which belongs to a 
delayed work. That's all I can decode out of that splat. :("

Presumably having a full stack for the timer allocation would make this actionable.
