      tracing/events: add support for modules to TRACE_EVENT · 6d723736
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      Impact: allow modules to add TRACE_EVENTS on load
      
      This patch adds the final hooks to allow modules to use the TRACE_EVENT
      macro. A notifier and a data structure are used to link the TRACE_EVENTs
      defined in the module to connect them with the ftrace event tracing system.
      
      It also adds the necessary automated clean ups to the trace events when a
      module is removed.

      tracing/events: add export symbols for trace events in modules · 17c873ec
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      Impact: let modules add trace events
      
      The trace event code requires some functions to be exported to allow
      modules to use TRACE_EVENT. This patch adds EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL to the
      necessary functions.

      tracing/events: convert event call sites to use a link list · a59fd602
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      Impact: makes it possible to define events in modules
      
      The events are created by reading down the section that they are linked
      in by the macros. But this is not scalable to modules. This patch converts
      the manipulations to use a global link list, and on boot up it adds
      the items in the section to the list.
      
      This change will allow modules to add their tracing events to the list as
      well.
      
      Note, this change alone does not permit modules to use the TRACE_EVENT macros,
      but the change is needed for them to eventually do so.

      tracing/events: move the ftrace event tracing code to core · f42c85e7
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      This patch moves the ftrace creation into include/trace/ftrace.h and
      simplifies the work of developers in adding new tracepoints.
      Just the act of creating the trace points in include/trace and including
      define_trace.h will create the events in the debugfs/tracing/events
      directory.
      
      This patch removes the need of include/trace/trace_events.h

      tracing/events: move declarations from trace directory to core include · 97f20251
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      In preparation to allowing trace events to happen in modules, we need
      to move some of the local declarations in the kernel/trace directory
      into include/linux.
      
      This patch simply moves the declarations and performs no context changes.

      tracing: make trace_seq operations available for core kernel · 9504504c
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      In the process to make TRACE_EVENT macro work for modules, the trace_seq
      operations must be available for core kernel code.
      
      These operations are quite useful and can be used for other implementations.
      
      The main idea is that we create a trace_seq handle that acts very much
      like the seq_file handle.
      
      	struct trace_seq *s = kmalloc(sizeof(*s, GFP_KERNEL);
      
      	trace_seq_init(s);
      	trace_seq_printf(s, "some data %d\n", variable);
      
      	printk("%s", s->buffer);
      
      The main use is to allow a top level function call several other functions
      that may store printf like data into the buffer. Then at the end, the top
      level function can process all the data with any method it would like to.
      It could be passed to userspace, output via printk or even use seq_file:
      
      	trace_seq_to_user(s, ubuf, cnt);
      	seq_puts(m, s->buffer);

      tracing: create automated trace defines · a8d154b0
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      This patch lowers the number of places a developer must modify to add
      new tracepoints. The current method to add a new tracepoint
      into an existing system is to write the trace point macro in the
      trace header with one of the macros TRACE_EVENT, TRACE_FORMAT or
      DECLARE_TRACE, then they must add the same named item into the C file
      with the macro DEFINE_TRACE(name) and then add the trace point.
      
      This change cuts out the needing to add the DEFINE_TRACE(name).
      Every file that uses the tracepoint must still include the trace/<type>.h
      file, but the one C file must also add a define before the including
      of that file.
      
       #define CREATE_TRACE_POINTS
       #include <trace/mytrace.h>
      
      This will cause the trace/mytrace.h file to also produce the C code
      necessary to implement the trace point.
      
      Note, if more than one trace/<type>.h is used to create the C code
      it is best to list them all together.
      
       #define CREATE_TRACE_POINTS
       #include <trace/foo.h>
       #include <trace/bar.h>
       #include <trace/fido.h>
      
      Thanks to Mathieu Desnoyers and Christoph Hellwig for coming up with
      the cleaner solution of the define above the includes over my first
      design to have the C code include a "special" header.
      
      This patch converts sched, irq and lockdep and skb to use this new
      method.

      tracing: consolidate trace and trace_event headers · ea20d929
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      Impact: clean up
      
      Neil Horman (et. al.) criticized the way the trace events were broken up
      into two files. The reason for that was that ftrace needed to separate out
      the declarations from where the #include <linux/tracepoint.h> was used.
      It then dawned on me that the tracepoint.h header only needs to define the
      TRACE_EVENT macro if it is not already defined.
      
      The solution is simply to test if TRACE_EVENT is defined, and if it is not
      then the linux/tracepoint.h header can define it. This change consolidates
      all the <traces>.h and <traces>_event_types.h into the <traces>.h file.

      lockdep: continue lock debugging despite some taints · 574bbe78
      Frederic Weisbecker authored
      
      
      Impact: broaden lockdep checks
      
      Lockdep is disabled after any kernel taints. This might be convenient
      to ignore bad locking issues which sources come from outside the kernel
      tree. Nevertheless, it might be a frustrating experience for the
      staging developers or those who experience a warning but are focused
      on another things that require lockdep.
      
      The v2 of this patch simply don't disable anymore lockdep in case
      of TAINT_CRAP and TAINT_WARN events.
