Subject[GIT PULL] tracing/kprobes: Add dynamic tracepoints + instruction decoder
Date
Ingo,

This is the kprobes tracing pile of patches. I've tested it
successfully by setting some kprobes through debugfs by hand.

It brings no known regressions.

However, the stress test provided by Masami have revealed some
unstable points. Some symbols are unsafe to probe and raise
probing recursion.

I've added a tiny patch in the series that helps identifying the
kprobe that has raised such situation.
For example it has learned me today that it's unsafe to trace
ret_from_exception() (obviously: it's on the int 3 handler path).

Anyway, we have all the tools to debug that and easily find the
fragile points to probe. It's then just a matter of investigation
and stress tests now.

And because the pile of patches becomes big enough, I've thought it
could be time to do a pull request for -tip for it to have a
private branch and get fixes over the time.

Tell me if that's a problem and we can delay the pull request until
we fix the recursive points problems.

Thanks,
Frederic.
