SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 2/3] soc: qcom: rpmh: Allow RPMH driver to be loaded as a module
Hi John,

with commit efde2659b0fe ("drivers: qcom: rpmh-rsc: Use rcuidle
tracepoints for rpmh") the rpmh-rsc driver fails to build as a
module:

drivers/soc/qcom/rpmh-rsc.c:281:3: error: implicit declaration of function 'trace_rpmh_send_msg_rcuidle' [-Werror,-Wimplicit-function-decr]
trace_rpmh_send_msg_rcuidle(drv, tcs_id, j, msgid, cmd);


The problem is that the _rcuidle() functions are not generated for modules:

#ifndef MODULE
#define __DECLARE_TRACE_RCU(name, proto, args, cond, data_proto, data_args) \
static inline void trace_##name##_rcuidle(proto) \
{ \
if (static_key_false(&__tracepoint_##name.key)) \
__DO_TRACE(&__tracepoint_##name, \
TP_PROTO(data_proto), \
TP_ARGS(data_args), \
TP_CONDITION(cond), 1); \
}
#else
#define __DECLARE_TRACE_RCU(name, proto, args, cond, data_proto, data_args)
#endif

Not sure what the best solution would be in this case. Having the macro
define a dummy function for modules would fix the build error, however it
would be confusing that the event is traced when the driver is built-in,
but not when it is built as a module.

I imagine the goal behind making this driver a module is to have a single
kernel image for multiple SoC platforms, without too much platform
specific code in the kernel image itself.

I guess the question is whether there any options for keeping the driver
modular and having consistent tracing behavior, short of removing the
tracepoint.
