Subject[PATCH 3/3] tracing: Add support for dynamic strings to synthetic events
Date
Currently, sythetic events only support static string fields such as:

# echo 'test_latency u64 lat; char somename[32]' > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/synthetic_events

Which is fine, but wastes a lot of space in the event.

It also prevents the most commonly-defined strings in the existing
trace events e.g. those defined using __string(), from being passed to
synthetic events via the trace() action.

With this change, synthetic events with dynamic fields can be defined:

# echo 'test_latency u64 lat; char somename[]' > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/synthetic_events

And the trace() action can be used to generate events using either
dynamic or static strings:

# echo 'hist:keys=name:lat=common_timestamp.usecs-$ts0:onmatch(sys.event).test_latency($lat,name)' > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events

The synthetic event dynamic strings are implemented in the same way as
the existing __data_loc strings and appear as such in the format file.

If the event is created from within a module, a pointer to the module
must be passed to synth_event_create(). This will ensure that the

For instance, the following creates a new event named 'wakeup_latency'
with 3 fields: lat, pid, and prio. Each of those fields is simply a
