      tracing/fgraph: Adjust fgraph depth before calling trace return callback · 03274a3f
      Steven Rostedt (Red Hat) authored
      While debugging the virtual cputime with the function graph tracer
      with a max_depth of 1 (most common use of the max_depth so far),
      I found that I was missing kernel execution because of a race condition.
      The code for the return side of the function has a slight race:
      	ftrace_pop_return_trace(&trace, &ret, frame_pointer);
      	trace.rettime = trace_clock_local();
      The ftrace_pop_return_trace() initializes the trace structure for
      the callback. The ftrace_graph_return() uses the trace structure
      for its own use as that structure is on the stack and is local
      to this function. Then the curr_ret_stack is decremented which
      is what the trace.depth is set to.
      If an interrupt comes in after the ftrace_graph_return() but
      before the curr_ret_stack, then the called function will get
      a depth of 2. If max_depth is set to 1 this function will be
      The problem is that the trace has already been called, and the
      timestamp for that trace will not reflect the time the function
      was about to re-enter userspace. Calls to the interrupt will not
      be traced because the max_depth has prevented this.
      To solve this issue, the ftrace_graph_return() can safely be
      moved after the current->curr_ret_stack has been updated.
      This way the timestamp for the return callback will reflect
      the actual time.
      If an interrupt comes in after the curr_ret_stack update and
      ftrace_graph_return(), it will be traced. It may look a little
      confusing to see it within the other function, but at least
      it will not be lost.

      USB: EHCI: fix build error in ehci-mxc · dba63b2f

      This patch (as1643b) fixes a build error in ehci-hcd when compiling for
      ARM with allmodconfig:
      drivers/usb/host/ehci-hcd.c:1285:0: warning: "PLATFORM_DRIVER" redefined [enabled by default]

      drivers/usb/host/ehci-hcd.c:1255:0: note: this is the location of the previous definition
      The fix is to convert ehci-mxc over to the new "ehci-hcd is a library"
      scheme so that it can coexist peacefully with the ehci-platform
      driver.  As part of the conversion the ehci_mxc_priv data structure,

      the private area at the end of struct ehci_hcd.

      ALSA: hda - Fix inconsistent pin states after resume · 31614bb8
      Takashi Iwai authored
      The commit [26a6cb6c
      : ALSA: hda - Implement a poll loop for jacks as a
      module parameter] introduced the polling jack detection code, but it
      also moved the call of snd_hda_jack_set_dirty_all() in the resume path
      after resume/init ops call.  This caused a regression when the jack
      state has been changed during power-down (e.g. in the power save
      mode).  Since the driver doesn't probe the new jack state but keeps
      using the cached value due to no dirty flag, the pin state remains
      also as if the jack is still plugged.
      The fix is simply moving snd_hda_jack_set_dirty_all() to the original

      ftrace: Use only the preempt version of function tracing · 897f68a4
      Steven Rostedt authored
      The function tracer had two different versions of function tracing.
      The disabling of irqs version and the preempt disable version.
      As function tracing in very intrusive and can cause nasty recursion
      issues, it has its own recursion protection. But the old method to
      do this was a flat layer. If it detected that a recursion was happening
      then it would just return without recording.
      This made the preempt version (much faster than the irq disabling one)
      not very useful, because if an interrupt were to occur after the
      recursion flag was set, the interrupt would not be traced at all,
      because every function that was traced would think it recursed on
      itself (due to the context it preempted setting the recursive flag).
      Now that we have a recursion flag for every context level, we
      no longer need to worry about that. We can disable preemption,
      set the current context recursion check bit, and go on. If an
      interrupt were to come along, it would check its own context bit
      and happily continue to trace.
      As the preempt version is faster than the irq disable version,
      there's no more reason to keep the preempt version around.
      And the irq disable version still had an issue with missing
      out on tracing NMI code.
      Remove the irq disable function tracer version and have the
      preempt disable version be the default (and only version).
      Before this patch we had from running:
       # echo function > /debug/tracing/current_tracer
       # for i in `seq 10`; do ./hackbench 50; done

      tracing: Avoid unnecessary multiple recursion checks · edc15caf
      Steven Rostedt authored
      When function tracing occurs, the following steps are made:
        If arch does not support a ftrace feature:
         call internal function (uses INTERNAL bits) which calls...
        If callback is registered to the "global" list, the list
         function is called and recursion checks the GLOBAL bits.
         then this function calls...
        The function callback, which can use the FTRACE bits to
         check for recursion.
      Now if the arch does not suppport a feature, and it calls
      the global list function which calls the ftrace callback
      all three of these steps will do a recursion protection.
      There's no reason to do one if the previous caller already
      did. The recursion that we are protecting against will
      go through the same steps again.
      To prevent the multiple recursion checks, if a recursion
      bit is set that is higher than the MAX bit of the current
      check, then we know that the check was made by the previous
      caller, and we can skip the current check.

      ftrace: Add context level recursion bit checking · c29f122c
      Steven Rostedt authored
      Currently for recursion checking in the function tracer, ftrace
      tests a task_struct bit to determine if the function tracer had
      recursed or not. If it has, then it will will return without going
      But this leads to races. If an interrupt came in after the bit
      was set, the functions being traced would see that bit set and
      think that the function tracer recursed on itself, and would return.
      Instead add a bit for each context (normal, softirq, irq and nmi).
      A check of which context the task is in is made before testing the
      associated bit. Now if an interrupt preempts the function tracer
      after the previous context has been set, the interrupt functions
      can still be traced.

      ftrace: Optimize the function tracer list loop · 0a016409
      Steven Rostedt authored
      There is lots of places that perform:
             op = rcu_dereference_raw(ftrace_control_list);
             while (op != &ftrace_list_end) {
      Add a helper macro to do this, and also optimize for a single
      entity. That is, gcc will optimize a loop for either no iterations
      or more than one iteration. But usually only a single callback
      is registered to the function tracer, thus the optimized case
      should be a single pass. to do this we now do:
      	op = rcu_dereference_raw(list);
      	do {
      	} while (likely(op = rcu_dereference_raw((op)->next)) &&
      	       unlikely((op) != &ftrace_list_end));
      An op is always registered (ftrace_list_end when no callbacks is
      registered), thus when a single callback is registered, the link
      list looks like:
       top => callback => ftrace_list_end => NULL.
      The likely(op = op->next) still must be performed due to the race
      of removing the callback, where the first op assignment could
      equal ftrace_list_end. In that case, the op->next would be NULL.
      But this is unlikely (only happens in a race condition when
      removing the callback).
      But it is very likely that the next op would be ftrace_list_end,
      unless more than one callback has been registered. This tells
      gcc what the most common case is and makes the fast path with
      the least amount of branches.

      tracing: Fix race with max_tr and changing tracers · 34600f0e
      Steven Rostedt authored
      There's a race condition between the setting of a new tracer and
      the update of the max trace buffers (the swap). When a new tracer
      is added, it sets current_trace to nop_trace before disabling
      the old tracer. At this moment, if the old tracer uses update_max_tr(),
      the update may trigger the warning against !current_trace->use_max-tr,
      as nop_trace doesn't have that set.
      As update_max_tr() requires that interrupts be disabled, we can
      add a check to see if current_trace == nop_trace and bail if it
      does. Then when disabling the current_trace, set it to nop_trace
      and run synchronize_sched(). This will make sure all calls to
      update_max_tr() have completed (it was called with interrupts disabled).
      As a clean up, this commit also removes shrinking and recreating
      the max_tr buffer if the old and new tracers both have use_max_tr set.
      The old way use to always shrink the buffer, and then expand it
      for the next tracer. This is a waste of time.
