Subject[PATCH 2/5] tracing/events: add startup tests for events
From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

As events start to become popular, and the new way to add tracing
infrastructure into ftrace, it is important to catch any problems
that might happen with a mistake in the TRACE_EVENT macro.

This patch introduces a startup self test on the registered trace
events. Note, it can only do a generic test, any type of testing that
needs more involement is needed to be implemented by the tracepoint
creators.

The test goes down one by one enabling a trace point and running
some random tasks (random in the sense that I just made them up).
Those tasks are creating threads, grabbing mutexes and spinlocks
and using workqueues.

After testing each event individually, it does the same test after
enabling each system of trace points. Like sched, irq, lockdep.

Then finally it enables all tracepoints and performs the tasks again.
The output to the console on bootup will look like this when everything
works:

Running tests on trace events:
Testing event kfree_skb: OK
Testing event kmalloc: OK
Testing event kmem_cache_alloc: OK
Testing event kmalloc_node: OK
Testing event kmem_cache_alloc_node: OK
Testing event kfree: OK
Testing event kmem_cache_free: OK
Testing event irq_handler_exit: OK
Testing event irq_handler_entry: OK
Testing event softirq_entry: OK
Testing event softirq_exit: OK
Testing event lock_acquire: OK
Testing event lock_release: OK
Testing event sched_kthread_stop: OK
Testing event sched_kthread_stop_ret: OK
Testing event sched_wait_task: OK
Testing event sched_wakeup: OK
Testing event sched_wakeup_new: OK
Testing event sched_switch: OK
Testing event sched_migrate_task: OK
Testing event sched_process_free: OK
Testing event sched_process_exit: OK
Testing event sched_process_wait: OK
Testing event sched_process_fork: OK
Testing event sched_signal_send: OK
Running tests on trace event systems:
Testing event system skb: OK
Testing event system kmem: OK
Testing event system irq: OK
Testing event system lockdep: OK
Testing event system sched: OK
Running tests on all trace events:
Testing all events: OK
