Andy, previously made some suggestions to this patch. The updated version is
below and I am planning to send it along with this series as v9. I have
included it in advance below for your Review.

Andy, would you be Ok with adding your Reviewed-by to it?

Subject: [PATCH v9 7/8] lib: Add module to simulate atomic sections for testing
preemptoff tracers

In this patch we introduce a test module for simulating a long atomic
section in the kernel which the preemptoff or irqsoff tracers can
detect. This module is to be used only for test purposes and is default
disabled.

Following is the expected output (only briefly shown) that can be parsed
to verify that the tracers are working correctly. We will use this from
the kselftests in future patches.

For the preemptoff tracer:

echo preemptoff > /d/tracing/current_tracer
sleep 1
insmod ./test_atomic_sections.ko atomic_mode=preempt atomic_time=500000
sleep 1
bash-4.3# cat /d/tracing/trace
preempt -1066 2...2 0us@: atomic_sect_run <-atomic_sect_run
preempt -1066 2...2 500002us : atomic_sect_run <-atomic_sect_run
preempt -1066 2...2 500004us : tracer_preempt_on <-atomic_sect_run
preempt -1066 2...2 500012us : <stack trace>
=> kthread
=> ret_from_fork

For the irqsoff tracer:

echo irqsoff > /d/tracing/current_tracer
sleep 1
insmod ./test_atomic_sections.ko atomic_mode=irq atomic_time=500000
sleep 1
bash-4.3# cat /d/tracing/trace
irq dis -1069 1d..1 0us@: atomic_sect_run
irq dis -1069 1d..1 500001us : atomic_sect_run
irq dis -1069 1d..1 500002us : tracer_hardirqs_on <-atomic_sect_run
irq dis -1069 1d..1 500005us : <stack trace>
=> ret_from_fork
