Subject[PATCH 10/19] x86, mpx: trace ranged MPX operations
From
Date

From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com>

trace when MPX is zapping pages:

When MPX can not free an entire bounds table, it will instead
try to zap unused parts of a bounds table to free the backing
memory. This decreases RSS (resident set size) without
decreasing the virtual space allocated for bounds tables.

trace attempts to find bounds tables:

This event traces any time we go looking to unmap a bounds table
for a given virtual address range. This is useful to ensure
that the kernel actually "tried" to free a bounds table versus
times it succeeded.

It might try and fail if it realized that a table was shared
with an adjacent VMA which is not being unmapped.
