Subject[PATCH 0/2] [GIT PULL] tracing: Two more small fixes

Linus,

While continuing my development, I uncovered two more small bugs.

One is a race condition when enabling the snapshot function probe
trigger. It enables the probe before allocating the snapshot, and
if the probe triggers first, it stops tracing with a warning that
the snapshot buffer was not allocated.

The seconds is that the snapshot file should show how to use it when
it is empty. But a bug fix from long ago broke the "is empty" test
and the snapshot file no longer displays the help message.

Please pull the latest trace-v4.11-rc5-5 tree, which can be found at:


git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace.git
trace-v4.11-rc5-5

Steven Rostedt (VMware) (2):
tracing: Allocate the snapshot buffer before enabling probe
ring-buffer: Have ring_buffer_iter_empty() return true when empty
