Subject[PATCH 1/2] lib: Add module for testing preemptoff/irqsoff latency tracers
Date
From: "Joel Fernandes (Google)" <joel@joelfernandes.org>

Here we introduce a test module for introducing a long preempt or irq
disable delay in the kernel which the preemptoff or irqsoff tracers can
detect. This module is to be used only for test purposes and is default
disabled.

Following is the expected output (only briefly shown) that can be parsed
to verify that the tracers are working correctly. We will use this from
the kselftests in future patches.

For the preemptoff tracer:

echo preemptoff > /d/tracing/current_tracer
sleep 1
insmod ./preemptirq_delay_test.ko test_mode=preempt delay=500000
sleep 1
bash-4.3# cat /d/tracing/trace
preempt -1066 2...2 0us@: preemptirq_delay_run <-preemptirq_delay_run
preempt -1066 2...2 500002us : preemptirq_delay_run <-preemptirq_delay_run
preempt -1066 2...2 500004us : tracer_preempt_on <-preemptirq_delay_run
preempt -1066 2...2 500012us : <stack trace>
=> kthread
=> ret_from_fork

For the irqsoff tracer:

echo irqsoff > /d/tracing/current_tracer
sleep 1
insmod ./preemptirq_delay_test.ko test_mode=irq delay=500000
sleep 1
bash-4.3# cat /d/tracing/trace
irq dis -1069 1d..1 0us@: preemptirq_delay_run
irq dis -1069 1d..1 500001us : preemptirq_delay_run
irq dis -1069 1d..1 500002us : tracer_hardirqs_on <-preemptirq_delay_run
irq dis -1069 1d..1 500005us : <stack trace>
=> ret_from_fork
