Subject[PATCH 7/7] ftrace: inject markers via trace_marker file.

Subject: [PATCH] ftrace: inject markers via trace_marker file.
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Allow a user to inject a marker (TRACE_PRINT entry) into the trace ring
buffer. The related file operations are derived from code by Frédéric
Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com>.

Load the driver you want to trace and use it. Mmiotrace will only catch MMIO
accesses to areas that are ioremapped while mmiotrace is active.

-[Unimplemented feature:]
During tracing you can place comments (markers) into the trace by
-$ echo "X is up" > /debug/tracing/marker
+$ echo "X is up" > /debug/tracing/trace_marker
This makes it easier to see which part of the (huge) trace corresponds to
which action. It is recommended to place descriptive markers about what you
do.
