Recover memory mappings before writing dump on ChromeOS On Linux, breakpad relies on /proc/[pid]/maps to associate symbols from addresses. ChromeOS' hugepage implementation replaces some segments with anonymous private pages, which is a restriction of current implementation in Linux kernel at the time of writing. Thus, breakpad can no longer symbolize addresses from those text segments replaced by hugepages. This patch tries to recover the mappings. Because hugepages are always inserted in between some .text sections, it tries to infer the names and offsets of the segments, by looking at segments immediately precede and succeed them. For example, a text segment before hugepage optimization 02001000-03002000 r-xp /opt/google/chrome/chrome can be broken into 02001000-02200000 r-xp /opt/google/chrome/chrome 02200000-03000000 r-xp 03000000-03002000 r-xp /opt/google/chrome/chrome BUG=crbug.com/628040 Rfirstname.lastname@example.org Review URL: https://codereview.chromium.org/2161713002 .

Breakpad is a set of client and server components which implement a crash-reporting system.
First, download depot_tools and ensure that they're in your
Create a new directory for checking out the source code (it must be named breakpad).
mkdir breakpad && cd breakpad
fetch tool from depot_tools to download all the source repos.
fetch breakpad cd src
Build the source.
./configure && make
You can also cd to another directory and run configure from there to build outside the source tree.
This will build the processor tools (
src/processor/minidump_dump, etc), and when building on Linux it will also build the client libraries and some tools (
Optionally, run tests.
Optionally, install the built libraries
If you need to reconfigure your build be sure to run
make distclean first.
To update an existing checkout to a newer revision, you can
git pull as usual, but then you should run
gclient sync to ensure that the dependent repos are up-to-date.
Follow the steps above to get the source and build it.
Make changes. Build and test your changes. For core code like processor use methods above. For linux/mac/windows, there are test targets in each project file.
Commit your changes to your local repo and upload them to the server. http://dev.chromium.org/developers/contributing-code e.g.
git commit ... && git cl upload ... You will be prompted for credential and a description.
