      ring-buffer: Move resize integrity check under reader lock · dd7f5943
      Steven Rostedt authored
      While using an application that does splice on the ftrace ring
      buffer at start up, I triggered an integrity check failure.
      Looking into this, I discovered that resizing the buffer performs
      an integrity check after the buffer is resized. This check unfortunately
      is preformed after it releases the reader lock. If a reader is
      reading the buffer it may cause the integrity check to trigger a
      false failure.
      This patch simply moves the integrity checker under the protection
      of the ring buffer reader lock.

      ring-buffer: Use sync sched protection on ring buffer resizing · 18421015
      Steven Rostedt authored
      There was a comment in the ring buffer code that says the calling
      layers should prevent tracing or reading of the ring buffer while
      resizing. I have discovered that the tracers do not honor this
      This patch moves the disabling and synchronizing the ring buffer to
      a higher layer during resizing. This guarantees that no writes
      are occurring while the resize takes place.

      tracing: Remove comparing of NULL to va_list in trace_array_vprintk() · f2942487
      Carsten Emde authored
      Olof Johansson stated the following:
        Comparing a va_list with NULL is bogus. It's supposed to be treated like
        an opaque type and only be manipulated with va_* accessors.
      Olof noticed that this code broke the ARM builds:
          kernel/trace/trace.c: In function 'trace_array_vprintk':
          kernel/trace/trace.c:1364: error: invalid operands to binary == (have 'va_list' and 'void *')
          kernel/trace/trace.c: In function 'tracing_mark_write':
          kernel/trace/trace.c:3349: error: incompatible type for argument 3 of 'trace_vprintk'
      This patch partly reverts c13d2f7c
      re-installs the original mark_printk() mechanism.

      tracing: Fix function graph trace_pipe to properly display failed entries · be1eca39
      Jiri Olsa authored
      There is a case where the graph tracer might get confused and omits
      displaying of a single record.  This applies mostly with the trace_pipe
      since it is unlikely that the trace_seq buffer will overflow with the
      trace file.
      As the function_graph tracer goes through the trace entries keeping a
      pointer to the current record:
      current ->  func1 ENTRY
                  func2 ENTRY
                  func2 RETURN
                  func1 RETURN
      When an function ENTRY is encountered, it moves the pointer to the
      next entry to check if the function is a nested or leaf function.
                  func1 ENTRY
      current ->  func2 ENTRY
                  func2 RETURN
                  func1 RETURN
      If the rest of the writing of the function fills the trace_seq buffer,
      then the trace_pipe read will ignore this entry. The next read will
      Now start at the current location, but the first entry (func1) will
      be discarded.
      This patch keeps a copy of the current entry in the iterator private
      storage and will keep track of when the trace_seq buffer fills. When
      the trace_seq buffer fills, it will reuse the copy of the entry in the
      next iteration.
        This patch has been largely modified by Steven Rostedt in order to
        clean it up and simplify it. The original idea and concept was from
        Jirka and for that, this patch will go under his name to give him
        the credit he deserves. But because this was modify by Steven Rostedt
        anything wrong with the patch should be blamed on Steven.

      tracing: Add full state to trace_seq · d184b31c
      Johannes Berg authored
      The trace_seq buffer might fill up, and right now one needs to check the
      return value of each printf into the buffer to check for that.
      Instead, have the buffer keep track of whether it is full or not, and
      reject more input if it is full or would have overflowed with an input
      that wasn't added.

      tracing: Buffer the output of seq_file in case of filled buffer · a63ce5b3
      Steven Rostedt authored
      If the seq_read fills the buffer it will call s_start again on the next
      itertation with the same position. This causes a problem with the
      function_graph tracer because it consumes the iteration in order to
      determine leaf functions.
      What happens is that the iterator stores the entry, and the function
      graph plugin will look at the next entry. If that next entry is a return
      of the same function and task, then the function is a leaf and the
      function_graph plugin calls ring_buffer_read which moves the ring buffer
      iterator forward (the trace iterator still points to the function start
      The copying of the trace_seq to the seq_file buffer will fail if the
      seq_file buffer is full. The seq_read will not show this entry.
      The next read by userspace will cause seq_read to again call s_start
      which will reuse the trace iterator entry (the function start entry).
      But the function return entry was already consumed. The function graph
      plugin will think that this entry is a nested function and not a leaf.
      To solve this, the trace code now checks the return status of the
      seq_printf (trace_print_seq). If the writing to the seq_file buffer
      fails, we set a flag in the iterator (leftover) and we do not reset
      the trace_seq buffer. On the next call to s_start, we check the leftover
      flag, and if it is set, we just reuse the trace_seq buffer and do not
      call into the plugin print functions.
      Before this patch:
       2)               |      fput() {
       2)               |        __fput() {
       2)   0.550 us    |          inotify_inode_queue_event();
       2)               |          __fsnotify_parent() {
       2)   0.540 us    |          inotify_dentry_parent_queue_event();
      After the patch:
       2)               |      fput() {
       2)               |        __fput() {
       2)   0.550 us    |          inotify_inode_queue_event();
       2)   0.548 us    |          __fsnotify_parent();
       2)   0.540 us    |          inotify_dentry_parent_queue_event();
        Updated the patch to fix a missing return 0 from the trace_print_seq()
        stub when CONFIG_TRACING is disabled.
