This patch series includes implementation of libtraceevent
man pages, describing all APIs of the library.
V3 combines all man page related pathes into one series. It
also removes any dependencies between man page related patches
and pathes related to the APIs implementation.

  To: rostedt; +Cc: linux-trace-devel

This patch adds initial support for libtraceevent man pages -
Documentation directory, templates, configurations, Makefiles.
The first man page is also part of the patch - summary of the
library and all its APIs. Building of the documentation is
integrated into the libtraceevent build process, new targets are
added to its Makefile:
make doc
make doc-clean
make doc-install
make doc-uninstall

+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The libtraceevent(3) library provides APIs to access kernel tracepoint events,
+located in the debugfs file system under the tracing/events directory.
+
+ENVIRONMENT
+-----------
+[verse]
+--
+TRACEEVENT_PLUGIN_DIR
+	Additional plugin directory. All shared object files, located in this directory will be loaded as traceevent plugins.
+--
+
+FILES
+-----
+[verse]
+--
+*event-parse.h*
+	Header file to include in order to have access to the library APIs.
+*trace-seq.h*
+	Header file to include in order to have access to trace sequences related APIs.
+	Trace sequences are used to allow a function to call several other functions 
+	to create a string of data to use.
+*-ltraceevent*
+	Linker switch to add when building a program that uses the library.

As libtraceevent/Documentation Makefile and all XLS files were taken
from tools/perf/Documentation, and modified for libtraceevent, this patch
adds a note on the top of the Makefile to state it. It also fixes the "clean"
rule, to clean up compiled man pages.

+tep_register_comm,tep_pid_is_registered,tep_data_comm_from_pid,tep_data_pid_from_comm,tep_cmdline_pid - handle pid to process name mappings
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+int *tep_register_comm*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, const char pass:[*]_comm_, int _pid_);
+int *tep_pid_is_registered*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, int _pid_);
+const char pass:[*]*tep_data_comm_from_pid*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_pevent_, int _pid_);
+struct cmdline pass:[*]*tep_data_pid_from_comm*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_pevent_, const char pass:[*]_comm_, struct cmdline pass:[*]_next_);
+int *tep_cmdline_pid*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_pevent_, struct cmdline pass:[*]_cmdline_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+These functions can be used to handle the mapping between pid and process name. 
+The library builds a cache of these mappings, which is used to display the name of 
+the process, instead of its pid. This information can be retrieved from 
+tracefs/saved_cmdlines file. 
+
+The _tep_register_comm()_ function registers a pid / process name mapping. 
+The _pid_ argument is the process ID, the _comm_ argument is the process name, 
+_tep_ is the event context. The _comm_ is copied internally. 
+
+The _tep_pid_is_registered()_ function checks if a pid has a process name mapping 
+registered. The _pid_ argument is the process ID, _tep_ is the event context.
+
+The _tep_data_comm_from_pid()_ function returns the process name for a given pid.
+The _pid_ argument is the process ID, _tep_ is the event context. The returned 
+string should not be freed, but will be freed when the _tep_ handler is closed. 
+
+The _tep_data_pid_from_comm()_ function returns a pid for a given process name.
+The _comm_ argument is the process name, _tep_ is the event context. 
+The argument _next_ is the cmdline structure to search for the next pid.
+As there may be more than one pid for a given process, the result of this call 
+can be passed back into a recurring call in the _next_ parameter, to search for 
+the next pid. If _next_ is NULL, it will return the first pid associated with
+the _comm_. The function performs a linear search, so it may be slow.
+
+The _tep_cmdline_pid()_ function returns the pid associated with a given _cmdline_.
+The _tep_ argument is the event context.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+_tep_register_comm()_ function returns 0 on success, or -1 in case of an error.
+
+_tep_pid_is_registered()_ function returns 1 if the _pid_ has a process name 
+mapped to it, 0 otherwise.
+
+_tep_data_comm_from_pid()_ function returns the process name as string, or the 
+string "<...>" if there is no mapping for the given pid.
+
+_tep_data_pid_from_comm()_ function returns a pointer to a struct cmdline, that 
+holds a pid for a given process, or NULL if none is found. This result can be 
+passed back into a recurring call as the _next_ parameter of the function.
+
+_tep_cmdline_pid()_ functions returns the pid for the give cmdline. If _cmdline_
+ is NULL, then -1 is returned.
+ 
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+The following example registers pid for command "ls", in context of event _tep_ 
+and performs various searches for pid / process name mappings:
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+int ls_pid = 1021;
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+	if (tep_register_comm(tep, "ls", ls_pid) != 0) {
+		/* Failed to register pid / command mapping */
+	}
+....
+	if (tep_pid_is_registered(tep, ls_pid) == 0) {
+		/* Command mapping for ls_pid is not registered */
+	}
+...
+	const char *comm = tep_data_comm_from_pid(tep, ls_pid);
+	if (comm) {
+		/* Found process name for ls_pid */
+	}
+...	
+	int pid;
+	struct cmdline *cmd = tep_data_pid_from_comm(tep, "ls", NULL);
+	while (cmd) {
+		pid = tep_cmdline_pid(tep, cmd);
+		/* Found pid for process "ls" */
+		cmd = tep_data_pid_from_comm(tep, "ls", cmd);

+================
+
+NAME
+----
+tep_alloc,tep_free,tep_ref,tep_unref,tep_ref_get - Create, destroy, manage 
+references of trace event parser context.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+struct tep_handle pass:[*]*tep_alloc*(void);
+void *tep_free*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+void *tep_ref*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+void *tep_unref*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+int *tep_ref_get*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+These are the main functions to create and destroy tep_handle - the main
+structure, representing the trace event parser context. This context is used as
+the input parameter of most library APIs.
+
+The _tep_alloc()_ function allocates and initializes the tep context.
+
+The _tep_free()_ function will decrement the reference of the _tep_ handler.
+When there is no more references, then it will free the handler, as well
+as clean up all its resources that it had used. The argument _tep_ is 
+the pointer to the trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_ref()_ function adds a reference to the _tep_ handler.
+
+The _tep_unref()_ function removes a reference from the _tep_ handler. When 
+the last reference is removed, the _tep_ is destroyed, and all resources that 
+it had used are cleaned up.
+
+The _tep_ref_get()_ functions gets the current references of the _tep_ handler.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+_tep_alloc()_ returns a pointer to a newly created tep_handle structure. 
+NULL is returned in case there is not enough free memory to allocate it.
+
+_tep_ref_get()_ returns the current references of _tep_.
+If _tep_ is NULL, 0 is returned.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+int ref = tep_ref_get(tep);
+tep_ref(tep);
+if ( (ref+1) != tep_ref_get(tep)) {
+	/* Something wrong happened, the counter is not incremented by 1 */
+}
+tep_unref(tep);
+...
+tep_free(tep);

+libtraceevent(3)
+================
+
+NAME
+----
+tep_set_latency_format,tep_is_latency_format - Get / set "latency output" format.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+void *tep_set_latency_format*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, int _lat_);
+int *tep_is_latency_format*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+"Latency output" format prints information about interrupts being disabled, 
+soft irq being disabled, the "need_resched" flag being set and preempt count. 
+This information is recorded with every event, but by default is not printed.
+
+The _tep_set_latency_format()_ function enables the "latency output" printing.
+The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. The _lat_ argument can be zero,
+for "latency output" disabled, or non zero for "latency output" enabled.
+Information is displayed with 6 characters. When a field is zero, or N/A, a pass:['.'] 
+is printed. Example:
+[verse]
+--
+  <idle>-0       0d.h1. 106467.859747: function:             ktime_get <-- tick_check_idle
+--
+The 0d.h1. denotes this information. The first character is never a pass:['.']
+and represents what CPU the trace was recorded on (CPU 0). The pass:['d'] denotes
+that interrupts were disabled. The pass:['h'] means that this was called inside
+an interrupt handler. The pass:['1'] is the preemption disabled (preempt_count)
+was set to one.  The two pass:['.']s are "need_resched" flag and kernel lock
+counter. If the "need_resched" flag is set, then that character would be a pass:['N'].
+
+The _tep_is_latency_format()_ function returns if "latency output" is enabled.
+
+This "Latency output" setting affects output of _tep_print_event_task()_
+and _tep_print_event_time()_ APIs. 
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+
+The _tep_is_latency_format()_ function returns non zero if "latency output" 
+is enabled, or zero if it is disabled.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+	tep_set_latency_format(tep, 1);
+...
+	if (tep_is_latency_format(tep)) {
+		/* latency output format is enabled */
+	} else {
+		/* latency output format is disabled */

+tep_strerror - Returns a string describing regular errno and tep error number. 
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+int *tep_strerror*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, enum tep_errno _errnum_, char pass:[*]_buf_, size_t _buflen_);
+
+--
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_strerror()_ function converts tep error number into a human readable string.
+The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. The _errnum_ is a regular errno,
+defined in errno.h, or a tep error number. The string, describing this error number 
+is copied in the _buf_ argument. The _buflen_ argument is the size of the _buf_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_strerror()_ function returns 0, if a valid _errnum_ is passed and the 
+string is copied into _buf_. If _errnum_ is not a valid error number, -1 is returned 
+and _buf_ is not modified.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+char buf[32]; 
+char *pool = calloc(1, 128);
+if (tep == NULL) {

+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+int *tep_register_trace_clock*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, const char pass:[*]_trace_clock_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_register_trace_clock()_ function registers the clock, used for 
+the timestamps of the events. When an event is recorded, a timestamp is attached 
+to it. This timestamp comes from a specified clock. Supported clocks can be seen 
+in tracefs/trace_clock, the selected one is in square brackets.
+The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser context. The _trace_clock_ argument 
+is the name of the clock, the string is copied internally. 
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_register_trace_clock()_ function returns 0 in case of success. 
+If there is not enough memory to copy the _trace_clock_ string -1 is returned 
+and errno is set to ENOMEM. 
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>

+================
+
+NAME
+----
+tep_register_event_handler,tep_unregister_event_handler -  Register / unregisters
+a callback function to parse an event information.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+enum *tep_reg_handler* {
+	_TEP_REGISTER_SUCCESS_,
+	_TEP_REGISTER_SUCCESS_OVERWRITE_,
+};
+
+int *tep_register_event_handler*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, int _id_, const char pass:[*]_sys_name_, const char pass:[*]_event_name_, tep_event_handler_func _func_, void pass:[*]_context_);
+int *tep_unregister_event_handler*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]tep, int id, const char pass:[*]sys_name, const char pass:[*]event_name, tep_event_handler_func func, void pass:[*]_context_);
+
+typedef int (*pass:[*]tep_event_handler_func*)(struct trace_seq pass:[*]s, struct tep_record pass:[*]record, struct tep_event pass:[*]event, void pass:[*]context);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_register_event_handler()_ function registers a handler function, 
+which is going to be called to parse the information for a given event. 
+The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser context. The _id_ argument is 
+the id of the event. The _sys_name_ argument is the name of the system, 
+the event belongs to. The _event_name_ argument is the name of the event.
+If _id_ is >= 0, it is used to find the event, otherwise _sys_name_ and 
+_event_name_ are used. The _func_ is a pointer to the function, which is going 
+to be called to parse the event information. The _context_ argument is a pointer
+to the context data, which will be passed to the _func_. If a handler function 
+for the same event is already registered, it will be overridden with the new 
+one. This mechanism allows a developer to override the parsing of a given event.
+If for some reason the default print format is not sufficient, the developer 
+can register a function for an event to be used to parse the data instead.
+
+The _tep_unregister_event_handler()_ function unregisters the handler function,
+previously registered with _tep_register_event_handler()_. The _tep_ argument 
+is the trace event parser context. The _id_, _sys_name_, _event_name_, _func_,
+and _context_ are the same arguments, as when the callback function _func_ was
+registered.
+
+The _tep_event_handler_func_ is the type of the custom event handler 
+function. The _s_ argument is the trace sequence, it can be used to create a 
+custom string, describing the event. A _record_  to get the event from is passed 
+as input parameter and also the _event_ - the handle to the record's event. The 
+_context_ is custom context, set when the custom event handler is registered. 
+ 
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_register_event_handler()_ function returns _TEP_REGISTER_SUCCESS_
+if the new handler is registered successfully or _TEP_REGISTER_SUCCESS_OVERWRITE_ if
+an existing handler is overwritten. If there is not  enough memory to complete 
+the registration, TEP_ERRNO__MEM_ALLOC_FAILED is returned. 
+
+The _tep_unregister_event_handler()_ function returns 0 if _func_ was removed 
+successful or, -1 if the event was not found.
+
+The _tep_event_handler_func_ should return -1 in case of an error, or 0 otherwise.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+#include <trace-seq.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+int custom_event_handler(struct trace_seq *s, struct tep_record *record,
+			 struct tep_event *event, void *context) 
+{
+	trace_seq_printf(s, "kvm_exit event");
+	return 0;
+}
+...
+	if (tep_register_event_handler(tep, -1, "kvm", "kvm_exit",
+				   custom_event_handler, NULL)) {
+	/* Failed to register the handler for event "kvm_exit" from "kvm" system */
+	}

+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+enum *tep_func_arg_type* {
+	TEP_FUNC_ARG_VOID,
+	TEP_FUNC_ARG_INT,

+int *tep_unregister_print_function*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, tep_func_handler _func_, char pass:[*]_name_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Some events may have helper functions in the print format arguments. This allows
+a plugin to dynamically create a way to process one of these functions.
+
+The _tep_register_print_function()_ registers such helper function. The _tep_ 
+argument is the trace event parser context. The _func_ argument is the address
+of the helper function. The _ret_type_ argument is  the return type of the 
+helper function, value from the _tep_func_arg_type_ enum. The _name_ is the name
+of the helper function, as seen in the print format arguments. The _..._ is a 
+variable list of _tep_func_arg_type_ enums, the _func_ function arguments. 
+This list must end with _TEP_FUNC_ARG_VOID_.
+
+The _tep_unregister_print_function()_ unregisters a helper function, previously 
+registered with _tep_register_print_function()_. The _tep_ argument is the 
+trace event parser context. The _func_ and _name_ arguments are the same, used 
+when the helper function was registered.
+
+The _tep_func_handler_ is the type of the helper function. The _s_ argument is 
+the trace sequence, it can be used to create a custom string.
+The _args_  is a list of arguments, defined when the helper function was 
+registered. 
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_register_print_function()_ function returns 0 in case of success. 
+In case of an error, TEP_ERRNO_... code is returned.
+
+The _tep_unregister_print_function()_ returns 0 in case of success, or -1 in
+case of an error.
+
+EXAMPLE

+#include <event-parse.h>

+	trace_seq_printf(s, "the helper was called, with argument %lld", param);
+	return 0;

+				    process_custom_helper,
+				    TEP_FUNC_ARG_STRING,

+unsigned long long *tep_read_number*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, const void pass:[*]_ptr_, int _size_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_read_number()_ function reads an integer from raw data, taking into 
+account the endianness of the raw data and the current host. The _tep_ argument 
+is the trace event parser context. The _ptr_ is a pointer to the raw data, where 
+the integer is, and the _size_ is the size of the integer. 
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_read_number()_ function returns the integer in the byte order of 
+the current host. In case of an error, 0 is returned.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+void process_record(struct tep_record *record)
+{
+	int data = tep_read_number(tep, record->data, 4);

+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This set of functions can be used to search for an event, based on a given 
+criteria. All functions require a pointer to a _tep_, trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_find_event()_ function searches for an event by given event _id_.
+
+The tep_find_event_by_name()_ function searches for an event by given 
+event _name_, under the system _sys_. If the _sys_ is NULL (not specified),
+the first event with _name_ is returned.
+
+The tep_find_event_by_record()_ function searches for an event from a given 
+_record_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+All these functions return a pointer to the found event, or NULL if there is no 
+such event.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------

+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_print_event_time()_ function prints the timestamp of the _record_ using 
+the given _event_ information as trace sequence in _s_. The _tep_ argument is 
+trace event parser context. The _use_trace_clock_ argument indicates if 
+the tep->trace_clock should be used for parsing the timestamp.
+
+The _tep_print_event_task()_ function prints the task command, pid and CPU of 
+the _record_ using the given _event_ information as trace sequence in _s_. 
+The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. 
+
+The _tep_event_info()_ function parses the raw data from the _record_ using 
+the given _event_ information and writes the print format as trace sequence in
+_s_.
+
+The _tep_print_event_data()_ function writes the _event_ name  as trace 
+sequence in _s_ and calls _tep_event_info()_ to parse and write the raw data
+from the _record_. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. 
+
+The _tep_print_event()_ function prints the _record_ information as trace 
+sequence in _s_. It finds the corresponding event and calls 
+_tep_print_event_task()_,_tep_print_event_time()_ and _tep_print_event_data()_
+to parse and print the information.  
+The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. The _use_trace_clock_ 
+argument indicates if the tep->trace_clock should be used for parsing 
+the timestamp.

+tep_get_first_event,tep_get_events_count - Access events. 
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+struct tep_event pass:[*]*tep_get_first_event*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+int *tep_get_events_count*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_get_first_event()_ function returns a pointer to the first event. As events are 
+stored in an array, this function returns the pointer to the beginning 
+of the array. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. 
+
+The _tep_get_events_count()_ function returns the number of the events 
+in the array. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_get_first_event()_ returns a pointer to the first event. NULL is 
+returned in case of error, or in case there are no events.
+
+The _tep_get_events_count()_ returns the number of the events. 0 is 
+returned in case of error, or in case there are no events.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+int i,count = tep_get_events_count(tep);
+struct tep_event *event, *events = tep_get_first_event(tep);
+
+if (events == NULL) {
+	/* There are no events */

+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+These functions can be used to find a field and retrieve its value.
+
+The _tep_get_any_field_val()_ function searches in the _record_ for a filed with 
+_name_, part of the _event_. If the field is found, its value is stored in _val_. 
+In case of an error, an error string is printed into _s_, if _err_ is not 0.
+
+The _tep_get_common_field_val()_ function does the same as 
+_tep_get_any_field_val()_, but searches only in the common fields. 
+
+The _tep_get_field_val()_ function does the same as 
+_tep_get_any_field_val()_, but searches only in the event specific fields. 
+
+The _tep_get_field_raw()_ function searches in the _record_ for a filed with _name_, 
+part of the _event_. If the field is found, a pointer to its raw data is returned. 
+The size of the data is stored in _len_. In case of an error, an error string 
+is printed into _s_, if _err_ is not 0.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_get_any_field_val()_, _tep_get_common_field_val()_ and 
+_tep_get_field_val()_ functions return 0 on success, or -1 in case of an error.
+
+The _tep_get_field_raw()_ function returns a pointer to field's raw data, and 
+places the length of this data in _len_. In case of an error NULL is returned.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]

+SYNOPSIS

+
+void *tep_print_field*(struct trace_seq pass:[*]_s_, void pass:[*]_data_, struct tep_format_field pass:[*]_field_);

+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+These functions print recorded field's data, according to the field's type.
+
+The _tep_print_field()_ function extracts from the recorded raw _data_ value of 
+the _field_ and prints it into _s_, according to the field type.
+
+The _tep_print_fields()_ prints recorded values of all _event_'s fields. It 
+iterates all fileds of the _event_, and calls _tep_print_field()_ for each of
+them.
+
+The _tep_print_num_field()_ function prints a numeric field with given format 
+string. A search is performed in the _event_ for a field with _name_. If such 
+field is found, its value is extracted from the _record_ and is printed in the 
+_s_, according to the given format string _fmt_. If the argument _err_ is non-zero,
+and an error occures - it is printed in the _s_.
+
+The _tep_print_func_field()_ function prints a function field with given format 
+string.  A search is performed in the _event_ for a field with _name_. If such 
+field is found, its value is extracted from the _record_. The value is assumed 
+to be a function address, and a search is perform to find the name of this 
+function. The function name (if found) and its address are printed in the _s_, 
+according to the given format string _fmt_. If the argument _err_ is non-zero,
+and an error occures - it is printed in _s_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_print_num_field()_ and _tep_print_func_field()_ functions return 1 
+on success, -1 in case of an error or 0 if the print buffer _s_ is full.
+

+
+int *tep_read_number_field*(struct tep_format_field pass:[*]_field_, const void pass:[*]_data_, unsigned long long pass:[*]_value_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_read_number_field()_ function reads the value of the _field_ from the 
+raw _data_ and stores it in the _value_. The function sets the _value_ according
+to the endianness of the raw data and the current machine. 
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_read_number_field()_ function retunrs 0 in case of success, or -1 in 
+case of an error.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+struct tep_event *event = tep_find_event_by_name(tep, "timer", "hrtimer_start");

+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_filter_alloc()_ function creates a new event filter. The _tep_ argument

+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+enum *tep_filter_trivial_type* {
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_FALSE_,
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_TRUE_,

+int *tep_filter_clear_trivial*(struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_filter_, enum tep_filter_trivial_type _type_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_filter_event_has_trivial()_ function checks if the event with 
+_event_id_ contains a trivial _filter_ of _type_.
+
+The _tep_update_trivial()_ function updates the trivial rules with the given 
+filter. It scans _dest_ for trivial events matching _type_ to replace with 
+the _source_.
+
+The _tep_filter_clear_trivial()_ function clears TRUE and FALSE rules. 
+It removes rules in the _filter_ that only contain a given _type_ boolean arg.
+
+The trivial _type_, used as argument of these functions can be:
+[verse]
+--
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_FALSE_	- TRUE
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_TRUE_	- FALSE
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_BOTH_	- TRUE or FALSE
+
+--
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_filter_event_has_trivial()_ function returns 1 if the event contains 
+a matching trivial type, otherwise 0.
+
+The _tep_update_trivial()_ function  returns 0 on success, or -1 if there was 
+a problem updating, but events may have still been updated on error.
+
+The _tep_filter_clear_trivial()_ function returns 0 on success, or -1 if there 
+was a problem.
+

+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+These functions can be used to find function name and start address, by given 
+address. The given address does not have to be exact, it will select the function 
+that would contain it.
+
+The _tep_find_function()_ function returns the function name, which contains the
+given address _addr_. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_find_function_address()_ function returns the function start address, 
+by given address _addr_. The _addr_ does not have to be exact, it will select the function 
+that would contain it. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser context.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_find_function()_ function returns the function name, or NULL in case 
+it cannot be found.
+
+The _tep_find_function_address()_ function returns the function start address, 
+or 0 in case it cannot be found.

+================
+
+NAME
+----
+tep_set_function_resolver,tep_reset_function_resolver - Set / reset an alternative function resolver
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+typedef char pass:[*](*tep_func_resolver_t*)(void pass:[*]_priv_, unsigned long long pass:[*]_addrp_, char pass:[**]_modp_);
+
+int *tep_set_function_resolver*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, tep_func_resolver_t pass:[*]_func_, void pass:[*]_priv_);
+void *tep_reset_function_resolver*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Some tools may have already a way to resolve the kernel functions. These APIs
+allow them to keep using it instead of duplicating all the entries inside.
+
+The _tep_set_function_resolver()_ function registers _func_ as an alternative 
+kernel functions resolver. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context.
+The _priv_ argument is a custom context of the _func_ function.
+
+The _tep_reset_function_resolver()_ function resets the kernel functions 
+resolver to the default function.  The _tep_ argument is trace event parser 
+context.
+
+The _tep_func_resolver_t_ type is the prototype of the alternative kernel 
+functions resolver. This function receives a pointer to its custom context 
+(set with the _tep_set_function_resolver()_ call ) and the address of a kernel 
+function, which has to be resolved. In case of success, it should return 
+the name of the function and its module (if any) in _modp_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_set_function_resolver()_ function returns 0 in case of success, or -1
+in case of an error.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+char *my_resolve_kernel_addr(void *context, unsigned long long *addrp, char **modp)
+{	
+	return NULL;
+}
+...
+	if (tep_set_function_resolver(tep, my_resolve_kernel_addr, NULL) != 0) {
+		/* failed to register my_resolve_kernel_addr */
+	}
+...
+	tep_reset_function_resolver(tep);

+================
+
+NAME
+----
+tep_parse_event,tep_parse_format - Parse the event format information
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+enum tep_errno *tep_parse_event*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, const char pass:[*]_buf_, unsigned long _size_, const char pass:[*]_sys_);
+enum tep_errno *tep_parse_format*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, struct tep_event pass:[*]pass:[*]_eventp_, const char pass:[*]_buf_, unsigned long _size_, const char pass:[*]_sys_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_parse_event()_ function parses the event format and creates an event 
+structure to quickly parse raw data for a given event. The _tep_ argument is 
+the trace event parser context. The created event structure is stored in the 
+_tep_ context. The _buf_ argument is a buffer with _size_, where the event 
+format data is. The event format data can be taken from 
+tracefs/events/.../.../format files. The _sys_ argument is the system of 
+the event. 
+
+The _tep_parse_format()_ function does the same as _tep_parse_event()_. The only
+difference is in the extra _eventp_ argument, where the newly created event 
+structure is returned.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+Both _tep_parse_event()_ and _tep_parse_format()_ functions return 0 on success,
+or TEP_ERRNO__... in case of an error. 
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+char *buf;
+int size;
+struct tep_event *event = NULL;
+buf = read_file("/sys/kernel/tracing/events/ftrace/print/format", &size);
+if (tep_parse_event(tep, buf, size, "ftrace") != 0) {
+	/* Failed to parse the ftrace print format */
+}
+
+if (tep_parse_format(tep, &event, buf, size, "ftrace") != 0) {

+
+int *tep_parse_header_page*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, char pass:[*]_buf_, unsigned long _size_, int _long_size_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_parse_header_page()_ function parses the header page data from _buf_, 
+and initializes the _tep_, trace event parser context, with it. The buffer 
+_buf_ is with _size_, and is supposed to be copied from 
+tracefs/events/header_page. 
+
+Some old kernels do not have header page info, in this case the 
+_tep_parse_header_page()_ function  can be called with _size_ equal to 0. The 
+_tep_ context is initialized with default values. The _long_size_ can be used in
+this use case, to set the size of a long integer to be used. 
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_parse_header_page()_ function returns 0 in case of success, or -1 
+in case of an error.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------

+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_load_plugins()_ function loads all plugins, located in the plugin 
+directories. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. 
+The plugin directories are :
+[verse]
+--
+	- System's plugin directory, defined at the library compile time. It 
+	  depends on the library installation prefix and usually is 
+	  _(install_preffix)/lib/traceevent/plugins_
+	- Directory, defined by the environment variable _TRACEEVENT_PLUGIN_DIR_
+	- User's plugin directory, located at _~/.traceevent/plugins_ 
+-- 
+Loading of plugins can be controlled by the _tep_flags_, using the 
+_tep_set_flag()_ API:
+[verse]
+--
+	_TEP_DISABLE_SYS_PLUGINS_	- do not load plugins, located in 
+					the system's plugin directory.
+	_TEP_DISABLE_PLUGINS_		- do not load any plugins.
+--
+The _tep_set_flag()_ API must be called before _tep_load_plugins()_.
+
+The _tep_unload_plugins()_ function unloads the plugins, previously loaded by
+_tep_load_plugins()_. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. The 
+_plugin_list_ is the list of loaded plugins, returned by the _tep_load_plugins()_
+function.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_load_plugins()_ function returns a list of successfully loaded plugins, 
+or NULL in case no plugins are loaded.  
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+struct tep_plugin_list *plugins = tep_load_plugins(tep);

+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+enum *trace_flag_type* {
+	_TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_OFF_,
+	_TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_NOSUPPOR_,
+	_TRACE_FLAG_NEED_RESCHED_,

+int *tep_data_pid*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, struct tep_record pass:[*]_rec_);
+int *tep_data_preempt_count*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, struct tep_record pass:[*]_rec_);
+int *tep_data_flags*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, struct tep_record pass:[*]_rec_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This set of functions can be used to extract common fields from a record.
+
+The _tep_data_type()_ function gets the event id from the record _rec_. It reads 
+the "common_type" field. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_data_pid()_ function gets the process id from the record _rec_. It reads 
+the "common_pid" field. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_data_preempt_count()_ function gets the preemption count from the record 
+_rec_. It reads the "common_preempt_count" field. The _tep_ argument is the 
+trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_data_flags()_ function gets the latency flags from the record _rec_. 
+It reads the "common_flags" field. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser 
+context. Supported latency flags are:
+[verse]
+--
+	_TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_OFF_,		Interrupts are disabled.
+	_TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_NOSUPPOR_,	Reading IRQ flag is not supported by the architecture.
+	_TRACE_FLAG_NEED_RESCHED_,	Task needs rescheduling.
+	_TRACE_FLAG_HARDIRQ_,		Hard IRQ is running.
+	_TRACE_FLAG_SOFTIRQ_,		Soft IRQ is running.
+--
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_data_type()_ function returns an integer, representing the event id.
+
+The _tep_data_pid()_ function returns an integer, representing the process id
+
+The _tep_data_preempt_count()_ function returns an integer, representing the 
+preemption count.
+
+The _tep_data_flags()_ function returns an integer, representing the latency 
+flags. Look at the _trace_flag_type_ enum for supported flags.
+
+All these functions in case of an error return a negative integer.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+void process_record(struct tep_record *record)
+{
+	int data;
+	
+	data = tep_data_type(tep, record);
+	if (data >= 0) {
+		/* Got the ID of the event */
+	}
+	
+	data = tep_data_pid(tep, record);
+	if (data >= 0) {
+		/* Got the process ID */
+	}
+	
+	data = tep_data_preempt_count(tep, record);
+	if (data >= 0) {
+		/* Got the preemption count */
+	}
+	
+	data = tep_data_flags(tep, record);
+	if (data >= 0) {
+		/* Got the latency flags */

FYI,

I'm finding lots of whitespace errors in your patches. Please run
check-patch on new patches. Also, perhaps looking at the output of
"git show" will display in red (it does for me) where the whitespace
errors are.

I'll handle it for this series, but it is very time consuming for a
maintainer to fix these, and most will just reject the patches because
of it.

A better way to say this is:

"which have a tracing buffer representing it. Note, the buffer may be
empty".

That's because the way it is currently written sounds like empty
buffers wont be counted.

Update these too.

Thanks!

(also make sure the next patch is run through checkpatch to make sure
it doesn't have any whitespace errors).

I would like to see a more formal explanation of the output here. Then
we can say "See Latency Format section."

Latency Format
--------------

The latency format displays 5 or more fields:

 CPU #, interrupt state, scheduling state, current context, and
 preemption count.

 Field 1 is the CPU number (starting with zero).

 Field 2 is the interrupt enabled state:

   d : Interrupts are disabled
   . : Interrupts are enabled
   X : The architecture does not support this information

 Field 3 is the "need resched" state.

   N : The task is set to call the scheduler when possible, as another
       higher priority task may need to be scheduled in.
   . : The task is not set to call the scheduler.

 Field 4 is the context state.

   . : Normal context

   s : Soft interrupt context

   h : Hard interrupt context

   H : Hard interrupt context which triggered during soft interrupt
       context.

   z : NMI context

   Z : NMI context which triggered during hard interrupt context

 Field 5 is the preemption count.

   . : The preempt count is zero.

   On preemptible kernels (where the task can be scheduled out in
   arbitrary locations while in kernel context), The preempt count,
   when non zero, will prevent the kernel from scheduling out the
   current task. The preempt count number is displayed when it is not
   zero.

Depending on the kernel, it may show other fields (lock depth,
or migration disabled, which are unique to specialized kernels).

Hello all,

I was just thinking that there be some additional information about potential use for RT applications.

In particular I am interested about its potential use for AUTOSAR AP (Adaptive Platform).

https://www.autosar.org/standards/adaptive-platform/

The first things that come to mind is to mark the functions which have unbound latency costs,
allocate memory, etc, so they can be relegated to the Initialization Phase,
so that in the RT Run Phase (kRunning) these can be avoided.

Another big theme I think is a good description of potential use in multithreaded applications,
and which are the potential pitfalls there..

Ciao,

Claudio
