Subject: [PATCH v6 00/10] libtracefs: Facilitate adding and removing kprobes
Date: Fri,  2 Jul 2021 14:56:06 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210702185616.167778-1-rostedt@goodmis.org> (raw)

Add a tracefs_kprobe_raw() to facilitate adding kprobe events. It's
denoted as "raw" because it still requires knowing the complex format of
a kprobe, but at least it helps with other formats:

 p:[[system/]event] addr fmt

The user only needs to know the "fmt" part above, and not worry about
what file to open, or how to open it.

Also add a tracefs_kprobe_clear() to clear all kprobes and a
tracefs_kprobe_clear_probe() to clear an individual kprobe. Both have a
"force" parameter, that if set, will then try to disable the kprobe in
all instances (including the top) and then remove the kprobe(s).

Changes since v4: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-trace-devel/20210702142242.163989-1-rostedt@goodmis.org/
 - Rename tracefs_kprobe_type() to tracefs_kprobe_info() that not only returns the
   type, but also allows the user to get the strings for the type (before the ':')
   the addr, and the format.

 - Have tracefs_get_kprobes() take a type parameter to explicitly ask for a
   kprobes or kretprobes.

 - Added a helper function parse_kprobes() to remove the parsing of the
   kprobe_events file out of the main logic.

 - Updated the tracefs_utest to use the kprobe APIs instead of just writing
   to the kprobe file directly (This helped catch a lot of bugs).
