Subject: [PATCH 0/2] [GIT PULL] tracing: Fixes old and new


Here's two fixes:

1) Discovered by Fengguang Wu's tests. I changed the parameters to
   the function graph x86 prepare_ftrace_return() call but forgot
   to update the call from entry_32 (i386 version). This patch corrects

2) I was tracing some code and found that the sched_switch tracepoint
   was showing tasks in the INTERRUPTIBLE state as RUNNING. This was
   due to the updates to convert preempt_count into a per_cpu variable.
   The tracepoint logic was made to use the task's saved_preempt_count
   which could hold a stale "PREEMPT_ACTIVE", instead of using the
   current preempt_count() call.

Please pull the latest trace-fixes-v3.18 tree, which can be found at:
