SubjectRe: [PATCH] Add gpu memory tracepoints
Thanks for the prompt reply!

The tracepoint proposed here is for tracking global gpu memory usage
total counter and per-process gpu memory usage total counter. The
tracepoint is for gfx drivers who have implemented gpu memory tracking
system. The tracepoint expects the de-duplication of the shared memory
is done inside the tracking system.

On Android, the graphics driver has implemented gpu memory tracking.
First, we'd like to profiler GPU memory with this tracepoint. Second,
we implement eBPF programs and attach to this tracepoint for tracking
GPU memory at runtime on production devices. However, the tracepoint +
eBPF approach requires the tracepoint to be upstreamed so that it's
considered a stable interface which Android common kernel can carry it
forever.

Best,
Yiwei
