From: Leo Yan <leo.yan@linaro.org>


The exception packet appears as one element with 'elem_type' ==
OCSD_GEN_TRC_ELEM_EXCEPTION or OCSD_GEN_TRC_ELEM_EXCEPTION_RET, which is
present for exception entry and exit respectively.  The decoder sets the
packet fields 'packet->exc' and 'packet->exc_ret' to indicate the
exception packets; but exception packets don't have a dedicated sample
type and shares the same sample type CS_ETM_RANGE with normal
instruction packets.

As a result, the exception packets are taken as normal instruction
packets and this introduces confusion in mixing different packet types.
Furthermore, these instruction range packets will be processed for
branch samples only when 'packet->last_instr_taken_branch' is true,
otherwise they will be omitted, this can introduce a mess for exception
and exception returning due to not having the complete address range
info for context switching.

To process exception packets properly, this patch introduces two new
sample types: CS_ETM_EXCEPTION and CS_ETM_EXCEPTION_RET; these two types
of packets will be handled by cs_etm__exception().  The function
cs_etm__exception() forces setting the previous CS_ETM_RANGE packet flag
'prev_packet->last_instr_taken_branch' to true, this matches well with
the program flow when the exception is trapped from user space to kernel
space, no matter if the most recent flow has branch taken or not; this
is also safe for returning to user space after exception handling.

After exception packets have their own sample type, the packet fields
'packet->exc' and 'packet->exc_ret' aren't needed anymore, so remove
them.
