      ftrace: add tracing of context switches · 35e8e302

      This patch adds context switch tracing, of the format of:

      ftrace: function tracer · 1b29b018
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      This is a simple trace that uses the ftrace infrastructure. It is
      designed to be fast and small, and easy to use. It is useful to
      record things that happen over a very short period of time, and
      not to analyze the system in general.
      
       Updates:
      
        available_tracers
           "function" is added to this file.
      
        current_tracer
          To enable the function tracer:
      
            echo function > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer
      
           To disable the tracer:
      
             echo disable > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer
      
      The output of the function_trace file is as follows
      
        "echo noverbose > /debugfs/tracing/iter_ctrl"

      ftrace: latency tracer infrastructure · bc0c38d1
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      This patch adds the latency tracer infrastructure. This patch
      does not add anything that will select and turn it on, but will
      be used by later patches.
      
      If it were to be compiled, it would add the following files
      to the debugfs:
      
       The root tracing directory:
      
        /debugfs/tracing/
      
      This patch also adds the following files:
      
        available_tracers
           list of available tracers. Currently no tracers are
           available. Looking into this file only shows
           "none" which is used to unregister all tracers.
      
        current_tracer
           The trace that is currently active. Empty on start up.
           To switch to a tracer simply echo one of the tracers that
           are listed in available_tracers:
      
         example: (used with later patches)
      
            echo function > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer
      
           To disable the tracer:
      
             echo disable > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer
      
        tracing_enabled
           echoing "1" into this file starts the ftrace function tracing
            (if sysctl kernel.ftrace_enabled=1)
           echoing "0" turns it off.
      
        latency_trace
            This file is readonly and holds the result of the trace.
      
        trace
            This file outputs a easier to read version of the trace.
      
        iter_ctrl
            Controls the way the output of traces look.
            So far there's two controls:
              echoing in "symonly" will only show the kallsyms variables
                  without the addresses (if kallsyms was configured)
              echoing in "verbose" will change the output to show
                  a lot more data, but not very easy to understand by
                  humans.
              echoing in "nosymonly" turns off symonly.
              echoing in "noverbose" turns off verbose.

      ftrace: add basic support for gcc profiler instrumentation · 16444a8a
      Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo authored
      
      
      If CONFIG_FTRACE is selected and /proc/sys/kernel/ftrace_enabled is
      set to a non-zero value the ftrace routine will be called everytime
      we enter a kernel function that is not marked with the "notrace"
      attribute.
      
      The ftrace routine will then call a registered function if a function
      happens to be registered.
      
      [ This code has been highly hacked by Steven Rostedt and Ingo Molnar,
        so don't blame Arnaldo for all of this ;-) ]
      
      Update:
        It is now possible to register more than one ftrace function.
        If only one ftrace function is registered, that will be the
        function that ftrace calls directly. If more than one function
        is registered, then ftrace will call a function that will loop
        through the functions to call.

      Add the notrace annotations to the vsyscall functions - there we are
      not in kernel context yet, so the tracer function cannot (and must not)

      tracing: add notrace to linkage.h · ffdc1a09
      Ingo Molnar authored
      
      
      notrace signals that a function should not be traced. Most of the
      time this is used by tracers to annotate code that cannot be
      traced - it's in a volatile state (such as in user vdso context
      or NMI context) or it's in the tracer internals.

      ftrace: add preempt_enable/disable notrace macros · 50282528
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      The tracer may need to call preempt_enable and disable functions
      for time keeping and such. The trace gets ugly when we see these
      functions show up for all traces. To make the output cleaner
      this patch adds preempt_enable_notrace and preempt_disable_notrace
      to be used by tracer (and debugging) functions.

      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      The tracer wants to be able to convert the state number
      into a user visible character. This patch pulls that conversion
      string out the scheduler into the header. This way if it were to
      ever change, other parts of the kernel will know.
