Subject[PATCH] tracing/branch-tracer: PROFILE_BRANCHES_PER_CPU must depend on SMP
Date
Ingo,

Please pull this fixlet, made against tip:tracing/branch-tracer.
It fixes a build failure you've reported recently.

Thanks.

The following changes since commit e482f8395f215e0ad6557b2722cd9b9b308035c4:
Steven Rostedt (1):
tracing/branch-profiler: add option to profile branches per cpu

are available in the git repository at:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/frederic/random-tracing.git tracing/branch-tracer

Subject: [PATCH] tracing/branch-tracer: PROFILE_BRANCHES_PER_CPU must depend on SMP
MIME-Version: 1.0

Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

While enabling the per cpu branch tracing in a non SMP config,
we get the following build failure:

kernel/trace/trace_branch.c: In function ‘branch_profiler’:
kernel/trace/trace_branch.c:353: error: implicit declaration of function ‘SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR’
kernel/trace/trace_branch.c:353: error: implicit declaration of function ‘per_cpu_offset’
kernel/trace/trace_branch.c:353: error: invalid type argument of ‘->’ (have ‘int’)
kernel/trace/trace_branch.c: In function ‘calculate_stat’:
kernel/trace/trace_branch.c:364: error: invalid type argument of ‘unary *’ (have ‘int’)
kernel/trace/trace_branch.c:366: error: invalid type argument of ‘->’ (have ‘int’)
kernel/trace/trace_branch.c:367: error: invalid type argument of ‘->’ (have ‘int’)

This is because the branch tracer uses per cpu internals that are not
supported on !CONFIG_SMP case.

To fix it we just need to disable the per cpu branch tracing in
!CONFIG_SMP case.

[ Impact: fix a build failure with the branch tracer ]

When profiling all branches, the system can take a big cache line
bouncing hit. On boxes with lots of CPUs, this can slow the system
