Subject[PATCH] ftrace: fix crash due to tracing of __naked functions
Date
This is a fix for the following crash observed in 2.6.29-rc3:
http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/1/29/150

On ARM it doesn't make sense to trace a naked function because then
mcount is called without stack and frame pointer being set up and there
is no chance to restore the lr register to the value before mcount was
called.

Compared to the original fix posted to arm-linux-kernel ML on 29 Jan
2009 by Abhishek Sagar I only changed the definition of __naked for ARM.

Hello,

without this change a kernel having CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER=y doesn't
boot on many maschines. It would be great if this change would make it
into .29.

The change of include/linux/compiler-gcc.h isn't pretty, but this is the
best change I currently see without bigger modifications.

Best regards
Uwe
