Hi Steven,

Just a few comments inline ..

Why do we not want to trace early boot? Just because it's not useful?

I don't grok what you're doing with CALL_BACK, you add it in places and
subtract in others - and it looks like you could do neither, but I haven't
gone over it in detail.

I should really add a #define for that.

And that.

0x03fffffe should be 0x03fffffc, if you set bit 1 you'll end with a "bla" instruction,
ie. branch absolute and link. That shouldn't happen as long as ip and addr are
properly aligned, but still.
In fact I think you should just use create_function_call() or create_branch() from
include/asm-powerpc/system.h

We already have a #define for .long, it's called PPC_LONG (asm/asm-compat.h)

Perhaps we should add one for .align, PPC_LONG_ALIGN or something?

Or perhaps we just need a macro for adding exception table entries.

Can you please put the extern in a header, and the EXPORT_SYMBOL in arch/powerpc/kernel/ftrace.c?

Ditto.
