Subject[PATCH 0/4] Some new features for the preempt/irqsoff tracers
Date
Hello all,

This series is meant to address two issues with the latency tracing.

The first three patches provide a method to trace latencies that
always occurs very close to each other and to differentiate between
them, in spite of the fact that the latency tracers always work in
overwrite mode.

[PATCH 1/4] This implement fs notification for preempt/irqsoff. It
makes it possible for userspace to detect when a new latency has
been detected.

[PATCH 2/4] This extends the preemptirq_delay_test module so that
it can be used to generate a burst of closely occurring latencies.

[PATCH 3/4] This adds a user space program to the tools directory
that utilizes the fs notification feature and a randomized algorithm
to print out any of the latencies in a burst with approximately equal
probability.

The last patch is not directly connected but doesn't apply cleanly on
its own:

[PATCH 4/4] This adds the option CONFIG_TRACE_CONSOLE_LATENCY to
decide whether we want to trace prints to the console or not.

best regards,

Viktor Rosendahl
