SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] ftrace: fix dynamic ftrace filter reset issue
From
Hi Steven,

Thanks for the reply.

I was wondering, why would a user reset the trace __explicitly__
without even using it.
That is why i created a patch for it.

>> /debug/tracing # echo function > current_tracer
>> /debug/tracing # cat trace <------ Not performed
>> /debug/tracing # echo schedule > set_ftrace_filter
>> /debug/tracing # echo function > current_trace
>> /debug/tracing # cat trace <------- Only this is performed
