Subject: [RFC PATCH 00/10] Ftrace functions hashlist
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 22nd January 2010 01:16:12 UTC (over 6 years ago)
Hi,

This set exports the functions hashlist in use by the functions
profiler for more general uses.

For now it has fixed a scalability problem in the function graph
tracer concerning the function start filtering (toward
set_graph_function file).

This is especially the beginning of a work to allow multiple function
(and function graph) tracers instances usable in parallel with
their own dynamic ftrace parameters. The plan is then to make
these tracers available for wider uses like perf, toward the trace
event api or whatever...

This is still in RFC stage because with this patchset,
the set of function filters from set_graph_function is only
active after the function graph tracer is enabled. If
set_graph_function is changed in the middle of the tracing, the
filters will be actually updated only after you switch to another
tracer and re-switch to the grah tracer. But that should be
fixed in a further iteration.

Frederic Weisbecker (9):
  ftrace: Generalize the function hashlist from function profiler
  ftrace: Ensure tracing has really stopped before leaving
unregister_ftrace_graph
  ftrace: Drop the ftrace_profile_enabled checks in tracing hot path
  ftrace: Ensure buffers are visibles to tracing callbacks right away
  ftrace: Drop buffer check in function profiler callbacks
  ftrace: Release the function hlist if we don't need it anymore
  ftrace: Make the function hashlist concurrently usable
  tracing: Use the hashlist for graph function
  ftrace: Factorize search and insertion in the function hashlist

Lai Jiangshan (1):
  tracing: Simplify test for function_graph tracing
