This isn't a sufficient check for whether a task is owned by the caller.

Poor description of trying block notification on self.

This function could be marked static even though it's exported through
perfmon.h in patch 13. It is unreferenced elsewhere.

Why can't this be done with just struct task_struct *task as the third
formal and change the assignment later to task = p?

Another function that can be static.

You need to mention the fact that ctx->lock needs to be locked before
calling this function.

No need to send a pointer to flags, just send the unsigned long value
itself, if necessary. All callers currently send the address of an
automatic anyway. Unlocking and then relocking ctx->lock by returning the
new flags is inappropriate.

You can't do this, you'll need to either separate these functions out by
having pfm_check_task_state() indicate by a return value that
ptrace_check_attach() should be checked or that we've already failed, or
come up with a non-locking solution.

This should be unnecessary when you no longer drop the ctx->lock in this
function.

Another function that can be static.

Needs a comment to say that *req and *ptr_free get kmalloc'd and requires
a free() of at least one of them upon return.

Another function that can be static.

Needs a comment to say that *arg gets kmalloc'd and requires a free()
afterwards.

In the non-error case where we return 0, is pfm_smpl_fmt_put(f) taken care
of in pfm_context_free()?

Not really necessary for perfmon_disabled to be an atomic_t since it's
only set in pfm_init() and we would have returned 0 in that function when
we've initialized correctly. A simple unsigned char will work fine.

Could this have a stack overflow on powerpc?

This comment doesn't make a lot of sense, you have to kfree(fptr) because
it could have been set in pfm_get_args() and kfree() can take a NULL
value, so why do you need a branch here at all? In fact, this branch
looks like it will always be true since this is our ptr_free from a
successful return of pfm_get_args() and this is on the success path.
