Subject: [PATCH] vsprintf: introduce %pf
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 15th April 2009 00:00:59 UTC (over 7 years ago)
If I remember well, a format which could let us to print a pure
function name has been suggested by Andrew Morton some monthes ago.

The current %pF is very convenient to print a function symbol, but
often we only want to print the name of the function, without
its asm offset.

That's what does %pf in this patch.
The lowecase f has been chosen for its intuitive sense of a weak kind
of %pF

The support for this new format would be welcome for the tracing tree
where the need to print pure function names is often needed and also
on other parts:

$ git-grep -E "kallsyms_lookup\(.+?\)"
arch/blackfin/kernel/traps.c:   symname = kallsyms_lookup(address,
&symsize, &offset, &modname, namebuf);
arch/powerpc/xmon/xmon.c:               name = kallsyms_lookup(pc, &size,
&offset, NULL, tmpstr);
arch/sh/kernel/cpu/sh5/unwind.c:        sym = kallsyms_lookup(pc, NULL,
&offset, NULL, namebuf);
arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c:       kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long) syscall,
NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/kprobes.c:               sym = kallsyms_lookup((unsigned
long)p->addr, NULL,
kernel/lockdep.c:       return kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)key, NULL,
NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)rec->ops->func,
NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, &modname,
str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(*ptr, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/trace_functions.c: kallsyms_lookup(ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/trace_output.c:    kallsyms_lookup(address, NULL, NULL, NULL,
str);
