Subject[PATCH] tracing: Export key trace event symbols
If symbols are not exported, modules can no longer register additional
(module specified) tracepoints like they use to be able to (i.e linux-3.15.x).
Somewhere on or about commit de7b2973903c6cc50b31ee5682a69b2219b9919d
(Author: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@efficios.com>
Date: Tue Apr 8 17:26:21 2014 -0400
tracepoint: Use struct pointer instead of name hash for reg/unreg tracepoints)
modules which attempted to register additional tracing functions would
get "Unknown symbol" errors. For example: "... Unknown symbol
__tracepoint_sched_switch (err 0)"
Symbols can be exported using the kernel's EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL_GPL macro
to allow modules to once again register their own tracing functions (for at
least some key points in the kernel as provided by this patch).
