    Hi Arnaldo,

    Yes it's possible with ftrace, by using the function graph tracer ( an
    ftrace extension that adds the tracing on return).

    To enable it just do:
    echo function_graph > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer

    And to trace by choosing a particular function as the root of the call
    stack, just do the things
    explained on this patch:;a=commit;h=ea4e2bc4d9f7370e57a343ccb5e7c0ad3222ec3c

    And the tracing will finish after this function returns :-)
