Subject[PATCH 00/19] tracing/workqueue: events support/enhancements, worklets tracing, fixes
Date
Hi,

This patchset brings various features for the workqueue tracer.

The support of events tracing (tracepoint expanding):
- workqueue_creation
- workqueue_flush
- workqueue_destruction

Also for the worklets:
- worklet_enqueue
- worklet_enqueue_delayed
- worklet_execute
- worklet_complete
- worklet_cancel

Now, most of the lifecycle of worklets and workqueues is available.

The histogram tracing now also supports the worklets. You can
measure the max and average execution time of a worklet.

A good bunch of Oleg's comments have been addressed, at least the
critical ones (races which can cause freed pointer dereferences, memory
leak, etc...). The rest is more about the design itself, such as using
the workqueue as the identifier instead of the thread and other things
that are in discussion.

Thanks!

Frederic.
