Subject[PATCH 4.14 020/173] tracing: Fix sched switch start/stop refcount racy updates
Date
From: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@efficios.com>

commit 64ae572bc7d0060429e40e1c8d803ce5eb31a0d6 upstream.

Reading the sched_cmdline_ref and sched_tgid_ref initial state within
tracing_start_sched_switch without holding the sched_register_mutex is
racy against concurrent updates, which can lead to tracepoint probes
being registered more than once (and thus trigger warnings within
tracepoint.c).

[ May be the fix for this bug ]
