George Barrett Jan. 10, 2020, 7:30 p.m.
According to the SystemTap documentation on user-space probes[0], stap
probe points without semaphores are denoted by setting the semaphore
address in the probe's note to zero. At present the code does do a
comparison of the semaphore address against zero, but only after it's
been relocated; as such it will (almost?) always fail, commonly
resulting in GDB trying to overwrite the ELF magic located at the
image's base address.

This commit tests the address as specified in the SDT note rather than
the relocated value in order to correctly detect absent probe
semaphores.

gdb/Changelog:
2020-01-11  George Barrett  <bob@bob131.so>

	* stap-probe.c (stap_modify_semaphore): Don't check for null
	semaphores.
	(stap_probe::set_semaphore, stap_probe::clear_semaphore): Check
	for null semaphores.

gdb/testsuite/ChangeLog:
2020-01-11  George Barrett  <bob@bob131.so>

	* gdb.base/stap-probe.c (relocation_marker): Add dummy variable
	to help in finding the image relocation offset.
	* gdb.base/stap-probe.exp (stap_test): Accept arbitrary compile
	options in arguments.
	(stap_test_no_debuginfo): Likewise.
	(stap-probe-nosem-noopt-pie, stap-probe-nosem-noopt-nopie): Add
	test variants.
	(stap_test): Add null semaphore relocation test.
