Subject[PATCH v8 0/1] Tracepoint API simplification, text size shrink
Here is v8 of the tracepoint register/unregister API simplification,
submitted for 3.15.

This removes 8.8kB to the size of vmlinux (mostly text).

Changes since v1:
- Adapt ftrace/perf callers,
- Update tracepoint.h macro,
- Build tested.

Changes since v2:
- Introduce for_each_tracepoint() iterator to allow listing the
currently loaded tracepoints, for modules using coming/going
notifiers to track tracepoints.

Changes since v3:
- Introduce module coming and going notifiers each with their own
priority to ensure that other coming notifiers are called after, and
coming notifiers are called before the tracepoint notifiers.
- Fix: move for_each_tracepoint() outside of the CONFIG_MODULE ifdef.

Changes since v4:
- Split tracepoints_mutex into two locks: tp_modlist_mutex, which
protects the tracepoint list of modules, and a tracepoint_mutex, which
protects the tracepoints per se. tracepoint_mutex nests inside
- Introduce a tracepoint module notifier, to ensure consistency between
iteration on tracepoints with for_each_tracepoint() and module coming
and going notifications. This consistency is ensured by holding
tp_modlist_mutex when calling the notifier and when iterating on the
tracepoint module list.

Changes since v5:
- Remove tracepoint_add_old_probes within "Tracepoint cleanup: remove
unused API functions" rather than in later patch.
- Remove struct tp_probes "old probes" list within "Tracepoint cleanup:
remove unused API functions", as it is not needed anymore.
- Within "Tracepoint cleanup: remove unused API functions", simply add
the new module to tail of list, since there is no need to keep it
ordered anymore.

Changes since v6:
- Remove unused struct list_head list from struct tp_probes in patch
"Tracepoint: register/unregister struct tracepoint",
- Rename for_each_tracepoint() to for_each_kernel_tracepoint(). Only
iterate on kernel tracepoints,
- Registered tracepoint module notifiers now receive struct tp_module
pointer rather than struct module pointer,
- register_tracepoint_module_notifier and
unregister_tracepoint_module_notifier now iterate on all modules and
call coming/going notifiers. This ensures notifier registration and
listing of already loaded modules are done atomically (protected by

Changes since v7:
- Coding style updates,
- Shrink size of ftrace/perf struct ftrace_event_call,
- Put back the original tracepoints_mutex name, keep an original comment
layout that goes beyond 80 columns, put back original
tracepoint_module_list name, and rename tp_modlist_mutex to
tracepoint_module_list_mutex, so this patch does not introduce
cosmetic changes to pre-existing code.
