      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.

      lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint · 9eeba613
      Frederic Weisbecker authored
      
      
      Impact: provide useful missing info for developers
      
      Kernel taint can occur in several situations such as warnings,
      load of prorietary or staging modules, bad page, etc...
      
      But when such taint happens, a developer might still be working on
      the kernel, expecting that lockdep is still enabled. But a taint
      disables lockdep without ever warning about it.
      Such a kernel behaviour doesn't really help for kernel development.
      
      This patch adds this missing warning.
      
      Since the taint is done most of the time after the main message that
      explain the real source issue, it seems safe to warn about it inside
      add_taint() so that it appears at last, without hurting the main
      information.
      
      v2: Use a generic helper to disable lockdep instead of an
          open coded xchg().

      Not all events are pc (packet command) events. An event is a pc
      event only if it has BLK_TC_PC bit set.

      tracing, kmemtrace: Make kmem tracepoints use TRACE_EVENT macro · fc182a43
      Zhaolei authored
      
      
      TRACE_EVENT is a more generic way to define tracepoints.
      Doing so adds these new capabilities to this tracepoint:
      
        - zero-copy and per-cpu splice() tracing
        - binary tracing without printf overhead
        - structured logging records exposed under /debug/tracing/events
        - trace events embedded in function tracer output and other plugins
        - user-defined, per tracepoint filter expressions

      tracing, kmemtrace: Separate include/trace/kmemtrace.h to kmemtrace part and tracepoint part · 02af61bb
      Zhaolei authored
      
      
      Impact: refactor code for future changes
      
      Current kmemtrace.h is used both as header file of kmemtrace and kmem's
      tracepoints definition.
      
      Tracepoints' definition file may be used by other code, and should only have
      definition of tracepoint.
      
      We can separate include/trace/kmemtrace.h into 2 files:
      
        include/linux/kmemtrace.h: header file for kmemtrace
        include/trace/kmem.h:      definition of kmem tracepoints
