Subject[PATCH v6 0/4] improvements to the nmi_backtrace code
Date
This is a straight rebasing of the v5 series onto v4.7-rc7, plus
I now show Aaron Tomlin's ack for patch 2/4, and review of patch 1/4.

From the version 1 cover letter:

This patch series modifies the trigger_xxx_backtrace() NMI-based
remote backtracing code to make it more flexible, and makes a few
small improvements along the way.

The motivation comes from the task isolation code, where there are
scenarios where we want to be able to diagnose a case where some cpu
is about to interrupt a task-isolated cpu. It can be helpful to
see both where the interrupting cpu is, and also an approximation
of where the cpu that is being interrupted is. The nmi_backtrace
framework allows us to discover the stack of the interrupted cpu.

I've tested that the change works as desired on tile, and build-tested
x86, arm64, and arm. For x86 and arm64 I confirmed that the generic
cpuidle stuff as well as the architecture-specific routines are in the
new cpuidle section. For arm I just build-tested it and made sure the
generic cpuidle routines were in the new cpuidle section, but I didn't
attempt to tease apart the tangle of platform-specific idle routines
that arm has and tag them with __cpuidle. That might be more usefully
done by someone with arm platform experience in a follow-up patch.

I have also pushed it up to kernel.org to pull if that's easier:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/cmetcalf/linux-tile.git nmi-backtrace

v6: Rebased to kernel v4.7-rc7

v5: Add CPUIDLE_TEXT to the new arch/arm/kernel/vmlinux-xip.lds.S

v4: Added some more __cpuidle functions (PeterZ, Rafael Wysocki)
Rebased to kernel v4.6-rc1
https://lkml.kernel.org/g/1459358170-27745-1-git-send-email-cmetcalf@mellanox.com

v3: Various improvements to the set of __cpuidle functions;
Add back in a missing section accidentally removed in modpost.c (PeterZ)
https://lkml.kernel.org/r/1458667179-19630-1-git-send-email-cmetcalf@mellanox.com

v2: Switch to using __cpuidle tagging, switch S-O-B to Mellanox

Chris Metcalf (4):
nmi_backtrace: add more trigger_*_cpu_backtrace() methods
nmi_backtrace: do a local dump_stack() instead of a self-NMI
arch/tile: adopt the new nmi_backtrace framework
nmi_backtrace: generate one-line reports for idle cpus
