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

Basic infrastructure for host - guest timestamp synchronization and a
POC implementation of PTP-like algorithm. 

[
 v16 changes:
  - Fixed compilation in case no VSOCK is available (Thanks to Slavomir Kaslev)
  - Fixed a typo in trace-cmd-record.1.txt (Thanks to Slavomir Kaslev)
  - Added forgotten file in the patch "trace-cmd: Add new library APIs for
    ftrace instances." - trace-instance.c
  - Fixed few compilation warnings related to TSYNC_DEBUG code.
  - Removed a blank line at the end of "tsync_readme" file. 

 v15 changes:
  - Removed the patch for "--proc-map" from the series, as it should not
    be part of it.

 v14 changes:
  - Bring back the PTP-like algorithm and removed the ftrace event based logic.
  - Reimplemented the PTP-like algorithm to use raw ftrace markers, instead of clock_gettime() API.
  - Refactored the logic to be algorithm independent and plugin friendly.
  - Implemented continuous timestamps synchronization, while the trace is running.
  - Moved logic from trace-cmd application to libtracecmd, as new library APIs.
  - Implemented new trace id functionality.
  - Implemented new guest section in host trace.dat file.
	
 v13 changes:
  - Remove few patches from the set, as they were merged.
  - Rebased to the latest master, Slavomirs patchest "Add VM kernel tracing over
    vsockets and FIFOs" got merged!
 	
 v12 changes:
  - Rebased on top of Slavomir's v13 "Add VM kernel tracing over vsockets and FIFOs"

 v11 changes:
  - Rebased on top of Slavomir's v10 "Add VM kernel tracing over vsockets and FIFOs"
  - Addressed Slavomir's commnents from version 10 of the patch series.

 v10 changes:
  - Fixed broken compilation, call to timestamp_correction_calc() in timestamp_correct
    was smashed.
  - Replaced deprecated tep_data_event_from_type() API with tep_find_event().
  - Fixed a warning on assignment const to non const.

 v9 changes:
  - Fixed implementation of binary search algorithm in timestamp_correct()

 v8 changes:
  - Added rmdir() call in tracecmd_remove_instance(), to completely remove the instance. 
  However, there is an issue with deleting the instances using rmdir(), which is investigated.
  - Few changes in read_qemu_guests_pids(), timestamp_correct(), tsync_offset_load() 
 tracecmd_clock_context_new() and find_raw_events() suggested by Slavomir. 

 v7 changes:
  - Added warning messages in case time synchronization cannot be negotiated or fails.
  - Few optimizations and checks in read_qemu_guests_pids(), tsync_offset_load(),
    and find_raw_events(), suggested by Slavomir Kaslev.
  - Reworked timestamp_correct() to not use static variables.
  - Check TRACECMD_OPTION_TIME_SHIFT before reading time sync samples from the trace.dat file

 v6 changes:
  - Refactored tracecmd_msg_snd_time_sync() and tracecmd_msg_rcv_time_sync() functions:
    removed any time sync calculations logic as separate functions in trace-timesync.c file
  - Defined TSYNC_PROBE, TSYNC_REQ and TSYNC_RESP messages, in order to make the time sync
    protocol comprehensible.
  - Addressed Steven Rostedt comments.
  - Addressed Slavomir Kaslev commnets.

v5 changes:
  - Rebased to Slavomir's v8 "Add VM kernel tracing over vsockets and FIFOs"
    patch series.
  - Implemented an algorithm for time drift correction.
  - Addressed Slavomir's commnets.
  - Refactored the code: moved all time sync specific implementation in trace-timesync.c
  - Isolated all hardcoded event specific stuff in a structure, so it could be easily
    moved to external plugins.
  - Added a check for VSOCK support: do not perform vsock dependent time synchronisation
    in case there is no VSOCK support.

 v4 changes:
  - Removed the implementation of PTP-like algorithm. The current
    logic relies on matching time stamps of kvm_exit/virtio_transport_recv_pkt
    events on host to virtio_transport_alloc_pkt/vp_notify events on guest.
  - Rebased to Slavomir's v7 "Add VM kernel tracing over vsockets and FIFOs"
    patch series.
  - Decreased the time synch probes from 5000 to 300.
  - Addressed Steven Rostedt comments.
  - Code cleanup.

 v3 changes:
 - Removed any magic constants, used in the PTP-like algorithm,
   as Slavomir Kaslev suggested.
 - Implemented new algorithm, based on mapping kvm_exit events
   in host context to vsock_send events in guest context,
   suggested by Steven Rostedt.

 v2 changes:
  - Addressed Steven Rostedt comments.
  - Modified PTP-like timestamps sync algorithm to gain more accuracy, with the
    help of Yordan Karadzhov and Slavomir Kaslev.
