Subject[PATCH v3 00/14] tracing: Add triggers to trace_marker writes
A few people have asked for this in the past, and I finally got around
to implementing it. What this does is to allow writes into trace_marker
to initiate a trigger.

The trace_marker event is described in:

tracefs/events/ftrace/print

Thus the trigger file is added there:

tracefs/events/ftrace/print/trigger

As there's already a "hist" file there, everything appears to work
just like any other trigger to an event. See the last patch for
documentation on how to use the triggers to a trace_marker write.

By the way, the patch:

tracing: Prevent further users of zero size static arrays in trace events

May prevent your kernel from building if you include Xen. You will need
to add this patch to make it work (or include the git repo below).

Head SHA1: dded7b759602085b4bd2c5581f58f6b179912d89


Steven Rostedt (VMware) (14):
tracing: Do not reference event data in post call triggers
tracing: Add __find_event_file() to find event files without restrictions
tracing: Have event_trace_init() called by trace_init_tracefs()
tracing: Add brackets in ftrace event dynamic arrays
tracing: Do not show filter file for ftrace internal events
tracing: Add trigger file for trace_markers tracefs/ftrace/print
tracing: Have zero size length in filter logic be full string
tracing: Prevent further users of zero size static arrays in trace events
tracing: Allow histogram triggers to access ftrace internal events
tracing: Document trace_marker triggers
ftrace/selftest: Have the reset_trigger code be a bit more careful
ftrace/selftest: Fix reset_trigger() to handle triggers with filters
tracing/selftest: Add selftests to test trace_marker histogram triggers
tracing/selftest: Add test to test hist trigger between kernel event and trace_marker

----
Changes since v2:

- typo fixes in documentation (Tom Zanussi)
- Rename trigger-trace-marker{-hist} in selftest (Masami Hiramatsu)
- Fix onmatch(sched.sched_waking) (Namhyung Kim)
- Rename test to say trace_marker trigger from event trigger (Steven Rostedt)
