Subject[PATCH v9 34/37] tracing: Add a clock attribute for hist triggers
Date
The default clock if timestamps are used in a histogram is "global".
If timestamps aren't used, the clock is irrelevant.

Use the "clock=" param only if you want to override the default
"global" clock for a histogram with timestamps.

it is in units of nanoseconds; appending '.usecs' to a
common_timestamp field changes the units to microseconds.

-These features are decribed in more detail in the following sections.
+A note on inter-event timestamps: If common_timestamp is used in a
+histogram, the trace buffer is automatically switched over to using
+absolute timestamps and the "global" trace clock, in order to avoid
+bogus timestamp differences with other clocks that aren't coherent
+across CPUs. This can be overridden by specifying one of the other
+trace clocks instead, using the "clock=XXX" hist trigger attribute,
+where XXX is any of the clocks listed in the tracing/trace_clock
+pseudo-file.
