Subject[PATCH v7 10/17] tracing: not trace the timecounter_read* in kernel/time/clocksource.c
From: Wu Zhangjin <>

Some platforms(i.e. MIPS) need these two functions to get the precise
timestamp, we use __time_notrace(added in the last patch) to annotate
it. By default, __time_notrace is empty, so, this patch have no
influence to the original functions, but if you really not need to trace
them, just add the following line into the arch specific ftrace.h:

#define __time_notrace notrace

If you only need it for function graph tracer, wrap it:

#define __time_notrace notrace

please get more information from include/linux/ftrace.h
