Merge tag 'trace-3.10' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace
Pull tracing updates from Steven Rostedt: "Along with the usual minor fixes and clean ups there are a few major changes with this pull request. 1) Multiple buffers for the ftrace facility This feature has been requested by many people over the last few years. I even heard that Google was about to implement it themselves. I finally had time and cleaned up the code such that you can now create multiple instances of the ftrace buffer and have different events go to different buffers. This way, a low frequency event will not be lost in the noise of a high frequency event. Note, currently only events can go to different buffers, the tracers (ie function, function_graph and the latency tracers) still can only be written to the main buffer. 2) The function tracer triggers have now been extended. The function tracer had two triggers. One to enable tracing when a function is hit, and one to disable tracing. Now you can record a stack trace on a single (or many) function(s), take a snapshot of the buffer (copy it to the snapshot buffer), and you can enable or disable an event to be traced when a function is hit. 3) A perf clock has been added. A "perf" clock can be chosen to be used when tracing. This will cause ftrace to use the same clock as perf uses, and hopefully this will make it easier to interleave the perf and ftrace data for analysis." * tag 'trace-3.10' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace: (82 commits) tracepoints: Prevent null probe from being added tracing: Compare to 1 instead of zero for is_signed_type() tracing: Remove obsolete macro guard _TRACE_PROFILE_INIT ftrace: Get rid of ftrace_profile_bits tracing: Check return value of tracing_init_dentry() tracing: Get rid of unneeded key calculation in ftrace_hash_move() tracing: Reset ftrace_graph_filter_enabled if count is zero tracing: Fix off-by-one on allocating stat->pages kernel: tracing: Use strlcpy instead of strncpy tracing: Update debugfs README file tracing: Fix ftrace_dump() tracing: Rename trace_event_mutex to trace_event_sem tracing: Fix comment about prefix in arch_syscall_match_sym_name() tracing: Convert trace_destroy_fields() to static tracing: Move find_event_field() into trace_events.c tracing: Use TRACE_MAX_PRINT instead of constant tracing: Use pr_warn_once instead of open coded implementation ring-buffer: Add ring buffer startup selftest tracing: Bring Documentation/trace/ftrace.txt up to date tracing: Add "perf" trace_clock ...
