Subject: [PATCH v2 bpf-next] bpf: Fix build without BPF_SYSCALL, but with BPF_JIT.

From: Alexei Starovoitov <>

the kernel build fails:
In file included from ../kernel/bpf/trampoline.c:11:
../kernel/bpf/trampoline.c: In function ‘bpf_trampoline_update’:
../kernel/bpf/trampoline.c:220:39: error: ‘call_rcu_tasks_trace’ undeclared
../kernel/bpf/trampoline.c: In function ‘__bpf_prog_enter_sleepable’:
../kernel/bpf/trampoline.c:411:2: error: implicit declaration of function ‘rcu_read_lock_trace’
../kernel/bpf/trampoline.c: In function ‘__bpf_prog_exit_sleepable’:
../kernel/bpf/trampoline.c:416:2: error: implicit declaration of function ‘rcu_read_unlock_trace’

This is due to:
obj-$(CONFIG_BPF_JIT) += trampoline.o
obj-$(CONFIG_BPF_JIT) += dispatcher.o
There is a number of functions that arch/x86/net/bpf_jit_comp.c is
using from these two files, but none of them will be used when
only cBPF is on (which is the case for BPF_SYSCALL=n BPF_JIT=y).

Add rcu_trace functions to rcupdate_trace.h. The JITed code won't execute them
and BPF trampoline logic won't be used without BPF_SYSCALL.
