Subject[PATCH -tip 2/4] perf probe: Support "string" type
Date
Support string type casting to event argument. If perf-probe
finds an argument casted as string, it ensures the target
variable is "(unsigned/signed) char *(or []). perf-probe also
adds dereference if the target is a pointer.
So, both of 'char buf[10];' and 'char *buf;' can be accessed
by 'buf:string'

[NAME=]LOCALVAR|$retval|%REG|@SYMBOL[:TYPE]

'NAME' specifies the name of this argument (optional). You can use the name of local variable, local data structure member (e.g. var->field, var.field2), or kprobe-tracer argument format (e.g. $retval, %ax, etc). Note that the name of this argument will be set as the last member name if you specify a local data structure member (e.g. field2 for 'var->field1.field2'.)
-'TYPE' casts the type of this argument (optional). If omitted, perf probe automatically set the type based on debuginfo.
+'TYPE' casts the type of this argument (optional). If omitted, perf probe automatically set the type based on debuginfo. You can specify 'string' type only for the local variable or structure member which is an array of or a pointer to 'char' or 'unsigned char' type.
