SubjectRe: Is it a workqueue related issue in 2.6.37 (Was: Re: [libvirt] blkio cgroup [solved])

Since I've never done this before, I will tell you how I captured the
trace so you know what I did and can see whether I did something wrong
and can correct me if necessary.

echo blk > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/current_tracer
echo 1 > /sys/block/sdb/trace/enable
echo workqueue_queue_work >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/set_event
echo workqueue_activate_work >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/set_event
echo workqueue_execute_start >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/set_event
echo workqueue_execute_end >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/set_event
cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace_pipe

And that output i gzip'd.

This was taken with 2.6.37 plus the patch you mentioned on a Dell R815
with 2 12 core AMD Opteron 6174 CPUs. If you need any more information,
please let me know.
