SubjectRe: [PATCH v8 00/16] ftrace for MIPS

Time to talk about how to get the whole thing merged.

I'm reasonably happy with the arch part of the patchset. There are two
remaining issues in the arch part - cache flushing will not work as is on
a SMP system and the whole code patching is going to fail if the kernel
text is replicated with CONFIG_REPLICATE_KTEXT which is an IP27-only option.

I suggest we should go ahready and just disallow dynamic ftrace on on
these problematic configurations for now and deal with them later, so
something like

select HAVE_DYNAMIC_FTRACE if !SMP && !REPLICATE_KTEXT

This leaves the non-arch bits to merge; patches which touch code outside
of arch/mips are:

[PATCH v8 01/16] tracing: convert trace_clock_local() as weak function
[PATCH v8 06/16] tracing: add an endian argument to
[PATCH v8 07/16] tracing: add dynamic function tracer support for MIPS
[PATCH v8 09/16] tracing: define a new __time_notrace annotation flag
[PATCH v8 10/16] tracing: not trace the timecounter_read* in
