Andrew: Can you please add this patch to your tree? I have it in
microblaze next branch but should go through different tree.

Thanks,
Michal

Subject: [PATCH] asm-generic: Use raw_local_irq_save/restore instead local_irq_save/restore

start/stop_critical_timing function for preemptirqsoff, preemptoff
and irqsoff tracers contains atomic_inc and atomic_dec operations.

Atomic operations used local_irq_save/restore macros to ensure
atomic access but they are traced by the same function which is causing
recursion problem.

The reason is when these tracers are turn ON then local_irq_save/restore
macros are changed in include/linux/irqflags.h to call trace_hardirqs_on/off
which call start/stop_critical_timing.

Microblaze was affected because use generic atomic implementation.
