Subject[PATCH 0/5] tracing/core: various fixes
Date
Hi Ingo, Steven,

I've gathered various tracing fixes that were posted recently.

Note: the commit b11c53e12f94a46b50bccc7a1a953d7ca1d54a31
(ftrace: Add task_comm support for trace_event)
looks good to me. This v3 solves the two following unhandled
dependencies in v1:

ENABLE_EVENT_TRACING -> CONTEXT_SWITCH_TRACER
EVENT_TRACING -> CONTEXT_SWITCH_TRACER

The latter is tricky because CONTEXT_SWITCH_TRACER depends
on CONFIG_FTRACE (the tracers menu) from which EVENT_TRACING
is excluded. A build error can then occur if something selects
CONFIG_TRACING elsewhere.

The fix written by Zhaolei follows the {ENABLE_}EVENT_TRACING
view: we now have CONTEXT_SWITCH_TRACER and ENABLE_CONTEXT_SWITCH_TRACER.
The former is used by EVENT_TRACING to record cmdlines.
The latter selects CONTEXT_SWITCH_TRACER plus CONFIG_TRACING.
To sum up, ENABLE_CONTEXT_SWITCH_TRACER acts only as a "relay".

It looks good to me, tell me and Zhaolei if you have doubts
about it.

Thanks.
