SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/14] tracing: add compat syscall support v3
From
Date
Hi Jason,

I'm currently in the process of implementing syscall tracepoints for
PowerPC, and a considerable amount of my work is going to end up
requiring these patches of yours. I've reviewed and tested your patches
(and spent a good chunk of time rebasing them on top of
tip/tracing/core) and they all seem pretty good.

I *particularly* like the way in which they prevent ftrace syscalls from
reporting that sys_swapoff was constantly firing on x86_64 kernels with
a 32bit userspace ;)

Anyway, I'm just wondering if you have an ETA for the v4 patchset to
address the remaining issues that Frederic raised so that they can be
merged.

Cheers,
-Ian
