Subject: [PATCH v2 08/12] tracing: Add synth event generation test module
Date: Fri, 10 Jan 2020 14:35:14 -0600
Message-ID: <faff1f4fec2510c4bb11a930fde188d198ec416a.1578688120.git.zanussi@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1578688120.git.zanussi@kernel.org>
In-Reply-To: <cover.1578688120.git.zanussi@kernel.org>

Add a test module that checks the basic functionality of the in-kernel
synthetic event generation API by creating and generating synthetic
events from a module.
