Subject[PATCH 4.11 044/115] sparc/ftrace: Fix ftrace graph time measurement
Date
4.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: "Liam R. Howlett" <Liam.Howlett@Oracle.com>


[ Upstream commit 48078d2dac0a26f84f5f3ec704f24f7c832cce14 ]

The ftrace function_graph time measurements of a given function is not
accurate according to those recorded by ftrace using the function
filters. This change pulls the x86_64 fix from 'commit 722b3c746953
("ftrace/graph: Trace function entry before updating index")' into the
sparc specific prepare_ftrace_return which stops ftrace from
counting interrupted tasks in the time measurement.

Example measurements for select_task_rq_fair running "hackbench 100
process 1000":

| tracing/trace_stat/function0 | function_graph
Before patch | 2.802 us | 4.255 us
After patch | 2.749 us | 3.094 us
