Subject[PATCH 3.18 39/39] x86/tlb/trace: Do not trace on CPU that is offline
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)" <>

commit 6c8465a82a605bc692304bab42703017dcfff013 upstream.

When taking a CPU down for suspend and resume, a tracepoint may be called
when the CPU has been designated offline. As tracepoints require RCU for
protection, they must not be called if the current CPU is offline.

Unfortunately, trace_tlb_flush() is called in this scenario as was noted


Disabling non-boot CPUs ...
intel_pstate CPU 1 exiting

smpboot: CPU 1 didn't die...
[ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ]
3.19.0-rc7-next-20150204.1-iniza-small #1 Not tainted
include/trace/events/tlb.h:35 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!

other info that might help us debug this:

RCU used illegally from offline CPU!
rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0
no locks held by swapper/1/0.

By converting the tlb_flush tracepoint to a TRACE_EVENT_CONDITION where the
condition is cpu_online(smp_processor_id()), we can avoid calling RCU protected
code when the CPU is offline.
