Add tracefs_function_notrace() to set the functions not to trace.
Create a per instance pthread mutex lock.

[ This is actually the first time I'm sending patches via
  git send-email! Hopefully I dont' screw it up ;-) ]

  libtracefs: Move most functionality into helper function for
    tracefs_function_filter()
  libtracefs: Add tracefs_function_notrace() API
  libtracefs: Add a pthread_mutex per instance

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

In order to share the code of tracefs_function_filter() for
tracefs_function_notrace(), move all its functionality out of
tracefs_function_filter() and into a new helper function called
update_filter(). Then pass in the filter file and the pointer to the file
descriptor to the set_ftrace_filter, such that tracefs_function_notrace()
could do the same with set_ftrace_notrace file.

Add the API of tracefs_function_notrace() that is identical to how
tracefs_function_filter() works, but will work with the set_ftrace_notrace
filter file.

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

Add a pthread_mutex per instance such that modifications being done on
specific instances do not interfere with each other. This also includes a
new "toplevel_lock" that is to be used when modifying the toplevel
instance.

Convert the filter_mutex over to the toplevel/instance locking.

Hmm, as I found that my gitconfig uses vmware's smtp server, and the
Receive-SPF does not match. It may be blocked by the mailing lists.

I may try a second time. :-/

These descriptors should be closed in tracefs_instance_free(), as part
of the instance cleanup.

I'm wondering if we should free these global resources somehow. A
cleanup API for the whole library can be implemented  using
__attribute__((destructor)), or some other way ?

Good point. I'll add a patch on top of this one to close both of them.

No need. The OS will close them for you when the application exits. All
file descriptors that are opened will be closed by the OS.

That said, we should probably add O_CLOEXEC in the open for them such that
they don't stay open if the application does an exec() system call.
