Subject: [GIT PULL] tracing: Cleanups and fixes to syscall tracepoints


Linus,

This includes three patches from Oleg Nesterov. The first is a fix to a
race condition that happens between enabling/disabling syscall tracepoints
and new process creations (the check to go into the ptrace path for a process
can be set when it shouldn't, or not set when it should). Not a major bug
but one that should be fixed and even applied to stable.

The other two patches are cleanup/fixes that are not that critical, but
for an -rc1 release would be nice to have. They both deal with syscall
tracepoints.

I would have included these with my initial pull request, but as Oleg
posted his last version as a reply to the bottom of the patch 1/3
thread, I missed it.

Please pull the latest trace-fixes-v3.16-rc1 tree, which can be found at:

Oleg Nesterov (3):
      tracing: Fix syscall_*regfunc() vs copy_process() race
      tracing: Change syscall_*regfunc() to check PF_KTHREAD and use for_each_process_thread()
      tracing: syscall_regfunc() should not skip kernel threads
