I can't apply this patch because the new context counting broke tracing
suspend and resume because it depended on the context recursive locking.

Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20180116020051.776011914@goodmis.org

I added the attached two patches which appear to do the job.

Let me know what you think.

Subject: [PATCH] ring-buffer: Add nesting for adding events within events

The ring-buffer code has recusion protection in case tracing ends up tracing
itself, the ring-buffer will detect that it was called at the same context
(normal, softirq, interrupt or NMI), and not continue to record the event.

With the histogram synthetic events, they are called while tracing another
event at the same context. The recusion protection triggers because it
detects tracing at the same context and stops it.

Add ring_buffer_nest_start() and ring_buffer_nest_end() that will notify the
ring buffer that a trace is about to happen within another trace and that it
is intended, and not to trigger the recursion blocking.

Subject: [PATCH] tracing: Use the ring-buffer nesting to allow synthetic
events to be traced

Synthetic events can be done within the recording of other events. Notify
the ring buffer via ring_buffer_nest_start() and ring_buffer_nest_end() that
this is intended and not to block it due to its recursion protection.
