Subject: [PATCH v5 00/11] tracing: common error_log for ftrace

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

Hi,

This is v5 of the frace error_log patchset.  This version updates the
patches according to suggestions from Masami and Namhyung and moves
some of the selftest code from the kprobe/uprobe testcases to a common
function that can be reused by multiple testcases, including the new
error_log testcase.

Changes from v4:

  - Merged in the >& -> 2> redirection patch into '[PATCH v5 06/11]
    selftests/ftrace: Add error_log testcase for probe errors'
  - Added new patch, '[PATCH v5 07/11] selftests/ftrace: Move
    kprobe/uprobe check_error() to test.d/functions' that adds a new
    ftrace_errlog_check() to test.d/functions, which is based on
    check_error() from '[PATCH v5 06/11] selftests/ftrace: Add
    error_log testcase for probe errors'
  - Modified the kprobe/uprobe test cases to use the common
    ftrace_errlog_check()
  - Modified the error_log test cases to display the error position
    using the common ftrace_errlog_check()
  - Updated subject for '[PATCH v5 08/11] selftests/ftrace: Remove
    trigger-extended-error-support testcase
  - Streamlined the error_log open and write file operations as
    suggested by Masami
  - Fixed the long lines in '[PATCH v4 04/11] tracing: Use tracing
    error_log with trace event filters' as suggested by Namhyung

Changes from v3:

  - Added Masami's [PATCH 05/11] tracing: Use tracing error_log with probe events
  - Added Masami's [PATCH 06/11] selftests/ftrace: Add error_log testcase for probe
  - Added [PATCH 11/11] to fix [PATCH 06/11]
  - Removed [RFC PATCH v3 4/5] tracing: Use tracing error_log with kprobe events
  - Added [PATCH 08/11] selftests/ftrace: Add tracing/error_log testcase
  - Removed trigger-extended-error-support testcase
  - Changed [n] numbering to [timestamp] numbering as suggested by Masami
  - Updated Documentation and README

Changes from v2:

  - Added [n] numbering as suggested by Masami


Text from original post:

Last April, I posted an RFC patchset [1] implementing a common
error_log interface as suggested by Masami [2].  We were supposed to
discuss it at Plumbers but that never happened, and Steve recently
asked about patches for a follow-on discussion [3], so here they are.

I incorporated comments from the previous discussion, the most
important of which are:

 - Incorporated Steve's suggestion of using static strings as in the
   existing trace event filter code, along with err_info indexing into
   the string arrays and a position for the error caret.

 - Converted all the hist trigger errors and the existing trace event
   filter parse errors to use the new interface.

 - Converted a few kprobe_event errors to the new interface as
   examples, but these will require more work - I didn't spend much
   time figuring out how to get the full kprobe command into the error
   info, for instance.

 - Got rid of the custom single-page ring buffer and used standard
   lists instead.

For now, this is implemented on top of the latest 'hist trigger
snapshot and onchange additions' patchset [4].

Below is an example session of a few failed commands and the
corresponding error_log contents:
