2008-10-14markers: probe example, fix teardownMathieu Desnoyers
Need a marker_synchronize_unregister() before the end of exit() to make sure every probe callers have exited the non preemptible section and thus are not executing the probe code anymore. Signed-off-by: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@polymtl.ca> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2008-02-13Linux Kernel Markers: support multiple probesMathieu Desnoyers
RCU style multiple probes support for the Linux Kernel Markers. Common case (one probe) is still fast and does not require dynamic allocation or a supplementary pointer dereference on the fast path. - Move preempt disable from the marker site to the callback. Since we now have an internal callback, move the preempt disable/enable to the callback instead of the marker site. Since the callback change is done asynchronously (passing from a handler that supports arguments to a handler that does not setup the arguments is no arguments are passed), we can safely update it even if it is outside the preempt disable section. - Move probe arm to probe connection. Now, a connected probe is automatically armed. Remove MARK_MAX_FORMAT_LEN, unused. This patch modifies the Linux Kernel Markers API : it removes the probe "arm/disarm" and changes the probe function prototype : it now expects a va_list * instead of a "...". If we want to have more than one probe connected to a marker at a given time (LTTng, or blktrace, ssytemtap) then we need this patch. Without it, connecting a second probe handler to a marker will fail. It allow us, for instance, to do interesting combinations : Do standard tracing with LTTng and, eventually, to compute statistics with SystemTAP, or to have a special trigger on an event that would call a systemtap script which would stop flight recorder tracing.
