2013-06-20ARM: bL_switcher/trace: Add trace trigger for trace bootstrappingDave Martin
When tracing switching, an external tracer needs a way to bootstrap its knowledge of the logical<->physical CPU mapping. This patch adds a sysfs attribute trace_trigger. A write to this attribute will generate a power:cpu_migrate_current event for each online CPU, indicating the current physical CPU for each logical CPU. Activating or deactivating the switcher also generates these events, so that the tracer knows about the resulting remapping of affected CPUs. Signed-off-by: Dave Martin <dave.martin@linaro.org>
2013-06-20ARM: bL_switcher: Basic trace events supportDave Martin
This patch adds simple trace events to the b.L switcher code to allow tracing of CPU migration events. To make use of the trace events, you will need: CONFIG_FTRACE=y CONFIG_ENABLE_DEFAULT_TRACERS=y The following events are added: * power:cpu_migrate_begin * power:cpu_migrate_finish each with the following data: u64 timestamp; u32 cpu_hwid; power:cpu_migrate_begin occurs immediately before the switcher-specific migration operations start. power:cpu_migrate_finish occurs immediately when migration is completed. The cpu_hwid field contains the ID fields of the MPIDR. * For power:cpu_migrate_begin, cpu_hwid is the ID of the outbound physical CPU (equivalent to (from_phys_cpu,from_phys_cluster)). * For power:cpu_migrate_finish, cpu_hwid is the ID of the inbound physical CPU (equivalent to (to_phys_cpu,to_phys_cluster)). By design, the cpu_hwid field is masked in the same way as the device tree cpu node reg property, allowing direct correlation to the DT description of the hardware. The timestamp is added in order to minimise timing noise. An accurate system-wide clock should be used for generating this (hopefully getnstimeofday is appropriate, but it could be changed). It could be any monotonic shared clock, since the aim is to allow accurate deltas to be computed. We don't necessarily care about accurate synchronisation with wall clock time. In practice, each switch takes place on a single logical CPU, and the trace infrastructure should guarantee that events are well-ordered with respect to a single logical CPU.
