Re: Porting Corosync/Pacemaker - Help needed with gdb

I suspect that there is something wrong with the stack. According to pmap, and that seems to apply to all processes on NetBSD 6.0 amd64, the corosync process has the following stack regions:

00007f7ff8001000-00007f7ff8001fff       4k 0000000000000000 ---p+ (rwx) 1/0/0 00:00       0 -   [ stack ]
00007f7ff8002000-00007f7ff800ffff      56k 0000000000000000 rw-p+ (rwx) 1/0/0 00:00       0 -   [ stack ]
00007f7ff8010000-00007f7ffffdffff  130880k 0000000000000000 rw-p+ (rwx) 1/0/0 00:00       0 -   [ stack ]
00007f7ffffe0000-00007f7fffffffff     128k 0000000000000000 rw-p- (rwx) 1/0/0 00:00       0 -   [ stack ]

Our pointer points to 0x7f7ffffffffe, which resides in the last region - so it should be valid. But when using gdb, I can read the adresses up to 0x7f7ffffffffc while d, e and f are inaccessible:

(gdb) x 0x7f7ffffffffc
0x7f7ffffffffc: 0xfffffe81
(gdb) x 0x7f7ffffffffd
0x7f7ffffffffd: Cannot access memory at address 0x7f7ffffffffd
(gdb) x 0x7f7ffffffffe
0x7f7ffffffffe: Cannot access memory at address 0x7f7ffffffffe
(gdb) x 0x7f7fffffffff
0x7f7fffffffff: Cannot access memory at address 0x7f7fffffffff

It seems that this applies to all processes. Also forwarding this to tech-kern.

I hope someone can help.

Some deeper insight:

If I understand correctly, the crash happens when the content of rdx is copied to the adress rax points to. And rax points to 0x7f7ffffffffe, which is indeed not present. Also I wonder why gdb says "Cannot access memory at address 0x7f7ff0000000" when doing a backtrace.
