Ingo,

This is the same as the last git pull I made (tip/perf/urgent) but
without the last patch, as there's some minor fixes required for that
patch.

Thanks,

-- Steve

Please pull the latest tip/perf/urgent-2 tree, which can be found at:

From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

If some other kernel subsystem has a module notifier, and adds a kprobe
to a ftrace mcount point (now that kprobes work on ftrace points),
when the ftrace notifier runs it will fail and disable ftrace, as well
as kprobes that are attached to ftrace points.

Here's the error:

 ftrace failed to modify [<ffffffffa0180000>] init_once+0x0/0x20 [fat]
  actual: cc:bb:d2:4b:e1

A kprobe was added to the init_once() function in the fat module on load.
But this happened before ftrace could have touched the code. As ftrace
didn't run yet, the kprobe system had no idea it was a ftrace point and
simply added a breakpoint to the code (0xcc in the cc:bb:d2:4b:e1).

Then when ftrace went to modify the location from a call to mcount/fentry
into a nop, it didn't see a call op, but instead it saw the breakpoint op
and not knowing what to do with it, ftrace shut itself down.

The solution is to simply give the ftrace module notifier the max priority.
This should have been done regardless, as the core code ftrace modification
also happens very early on in boot up. This makes the module modification
closer to core modification.

From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

Sparse complains when is_signed_type() is used on a pointer.
This macro is needed for the format output used for ftrace
and perf, to know if a binary field is a signed type or not.
The is_signed_type() macro is used against all fields that are
recorded by events to automate the operation.

The problem sparse has is with the current way is_signed_type()
works:

  ((type)-1 < 0)

If "type" is a poiner, than sparse does not like it being compared
to an integer (zero). The simple fix is to just give zero the
same type. The runtime result stays the same.

Correct! Thank you for fix that.
