Subject: [PATCH v12 00/16] tracing: Hist trigger snapshot and onchange additions

From: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@...ux.intel.com>

Hi,

This is v12 of the hist trigger snapshot and onchange additions
patchset.

It addresses some comments from Namhyung regarding the 'tracing: Add
alternative synthetic event trace action syntax' patch to remove
parens and change the documentation to emphasize the trace() form of
the synthetic event generation command.

Thanks,

Tom


v11->v12 changes:

  - Removed parens from the param list specification in the trace()
    command description
  - Changed the Documentation for synthetic event generation to
    emphasize the trace() form over the function-call form.

v10->v11 changes:

  - Updated to use str_has_prefix() for static strings

v9->v10 changes:

  - Updated to use strncmp_prefix() for static strings

v8->v9 changes:

  - Moved v8 patches 17-22 to a separate series
  - Moved track_data.var_ref_idx removal into 'tracing: Generalize
    hist trigger onmax and save action'
  - Merged 'tracing: Add hist trigger handler.action documentation'
    into 'tracing: Refactor hist trigger action code'
  - Updated patches to change all strlen() to sizeof() for string
    constants
  - Moved test cases to the end of the series

v7->v8 changes:

  - Removed /dev/null redirection from test cases
  - Replaced event disable with tracing_on disable instead
  - New patch to remove hist_field.var_idx and track_data.var_ref_idx
  - New patch to use var_refs[] array for reference checking
  - New patch to remove open-coding of var_ref count manipulation
  - New patch to use var_refs[] array to destroy var_refs
  - New patch to remove synth_var_refs[] now that var_refs[] is used
  - New patch to add comments to variable-related fields
  - Added various new comments in the patches to clarify other things
  - Replaced the convoluted logic mentioned by Namhyung in
    update_track_val with wrappers and simpler check/save logic as
    suggested
  - Rebased to latest ftrace/core including Masami's dynamic event
    framework changes

v6->v7 changes:

  - Removed unnecessary HANDLER_ONMAX checks from onmax_print()/create()
  - Moved handler assignment to acion_parse()
  - Changed goto in ATION_TRACE case in action_create() to return
  - Changed EINVAL to EEXIST in action_create() ACTION_SAVE case
  - Made the return logic in create_actions() more consistent
  - Merged 'tracing: Move hist trigger key printing into a separate
    function' into 'tracing: Add hist trigger snapshot() action'
  - Updated the new snapshot, onchange, and trace test cases to match
    4.20 kselftest changes.
  - Added new xfail test case that make sure certain unsupported
    handler/action combinations fail as expected.
  - While updating the test cases, realized that the other testcases
    in the inter-event subdir needed SPDX license updates, so added
    them.

v5->v6 changes:

  - Added new Documentation patch explaining handler.action
  - Added new README patch explaining handler.action
  - Added separate snapshot() Documentation
  - Added new snapshot() test case
  - Updated README with snapshote()
  - Added separate onchange() Documentation
  - Added separate onchange() test case
  - Updated README with onchange()
  - Added separate trace() test case
  - Updated README with trace() and <synthetic_event>() syntax

v4->v5 changes:

  - added 'trace' keyword test case
  - added 'onchange' handler test case

v3->v4 changes:

  - added 'trace' keyword for generating synthetic events
  - fix elt_data leak
  - changed cond_update to cond_update_fn_t

v2->v3 changes:

  - fixed problem where trace actions were only being allowed for
    onmatch handlers - now trace actions can be used with any handler.
  - fixed problem where no action was being assigned to onmatch
    handlers if save or snapshot actions were specified.

v1->v2 changes:

  - added missing tracing_cond_snapshot_data() definition for when
    CONFIG_TRACER_SNAPSHOT not defined
  - removed an unnecessary WARN_ON() in track_data_snapshot_print()


Original text:

This patchset adds some useful new functions to the hist
trigger code: a snapshot action and an onchange handler.

In order to make it easier to add these and in the process make the
code more generic, I separated the code into explicit 'handlers' and
'actions', handlers being things like 'onmax' and 'onchange', and
'actions' being things like 'take a snapshot' or 'save some fields'.

The first few patches do that basic refactoring, which make it easier
to add the subsequent changes that arbitrarily combine actions and
handlers.

The fourth patch adds a 'conditional snapshot' capability that via a
new tracing_snaphot_cond() function extends the existing snapshot
code.  It allows the caller to associate some user data with the
snapshot that can be checked and saved in an update() callback whose
return value determines whether the snapshot should be taken or not.

The remaining patches finally add the new snapshot action and onchange
handler functionality - please see those patches for details and some
examples.

Thanks,

Tom
