Subject[PATCH v4 3/4] trace: Make addition of pages in ring buffer atomic
Date
This patch adds the capability to add new pages to a ring buffer
atomically while write operations are going on. This makes it possible
to expand the ring buffer size without reinitializing the ring buffer.

The new pages are attached between the head page and its previous page.

Signed-off-by: Vaibhav Nagarnaik <vnagarnaik@google.com>

Changelog v4-v3:
* Check return value from rb_(insert|remove)_pages for more robust error
handling
* Due to check for record_disabled, resizing was disallowed when
recording was disabled. Add resize_disabled to fix it.
