Subject: [RFC] tracefs
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 23rd October 2009 00:49:37 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Hi all,

At LinuxCon this year, Steven and I talked about moving the debugfs
usage in the tracing core to a stand-alone filesystem to give the
ability to start to lock down the api so that people an count on what is
going on in the tracing userspace interface.

So, on the flight to Tokyo for the kernel summit, I wrote up tracefs.
Here's the first very rough cut at it below.  I've run it here on my
laptop, and all seems well, but I do have a few questions:
  - I've made the mount point be /sys/kernel/trace/  Is that ok?  Should
    it be /sys/kernel/tracing/?  Or something else?  You get to pick the
    mount point now, so I don't want to hear any more grumblings about
    the location in the future :)
  - the block tracing code was not changed, as it uses
    /sys/kernel/debug/block/ at the moment, not the
    /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/ directory.  To change the block tracing
    code, it would require us to change the userspace tools as well,
    which I don't know if we want to do.  Thanks to Jens for
    straightening this all out for me, originally I thought it was a bug
    in the block tracing code.
  - is this type of conversion to a custom virtual filesystem acceptable
    to the other tracing developers?  Any objection to not using debugfs
    calls anymore?  The operation is identical, but it keeps the rest of
    the kernel from intruding on your space now.

Again, this is a very rough cut, I know I can make this smaller, and
actually make the code in the tracing core a bit simpler when calling
tracefs, as it does not need to support all the different options that
debugfs did.

Also, the init path for tracefs needs to be reworked, as it's a bit too
complex now.  This will reduce the usage of the "is this initialized"
type mess that the patch below currently has.

Oh, and yes, I will split this up properly as well for a real
submission :)

thanks,

greg k-h

Subject: tracefs

This replaces the debugfs usage in the tracing core with a custom
virtual filesystem for its use only.
