perf probe: Support adding probes on offline kernel modules
Support adding probes on offline kernel modules. This enables perf-probe to trace kernel-module init functions via perf-probe. If user gives the path of module with -m option, perf-probe expects the module is offline. This feature works with --add, --funcs, and --vars. E.g) # perf probe -m /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/fs/btrfs/btrfs.ko \ -a "extent_io_init:5 extent_state_cache" Add new events: probe:extent_io_init (on extent_io_init:5 with extent_state_cache) probe:extent_io_init_1 (on extent_io_init:5 with extent_state_cache) You can now use it on all perf tools, such as: perf record -e probe:extent_io_init_1 -aR sleep 1 Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <masami.hiramatsu.pt@hitachi.com> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20110627072751.6528.10230.stgit@fedora15 Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
