Hi Steven,

We can't break this patch into two patches, because it's has redefined 'DECLARE_TRACE'
in include/trace/define_trace.h, like below:

1: if we remove 'DECLARE_TRACE' first, then NAPI's tracepoint can't define tracepoint
(it's a NAPI tracepoint's bug,
see my previous patch: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=125118032931716&w=2)

2: if we convert NAPI's tracepoint first, it can't include more TRACE_EVENT .h files in
one .c file, the compiler will complain with variables redefined:

include/trace/events/napi.h:15: error: redefinition of ‘__tpstrtab_napi_poll’
include/trace/events/napi.h:15: error: previous definition of ‘__tpstrtab_napi_poll’ was here
include/trace/events/napi.h:15: error: redefinition of ‘__tracepoint_napi_poll’
include/trace/events/napi.h:15: error: previous definition of ‘__tracepoint_napi_poll’ was here
In file included from include/trace/ftrace.h:644,

So, I think we do better fix this bug early, then other people can go on his work on ftrace.

Hi Neil,

How do you think about this patch, can you give me some comments?


Thanks,
Xiao
