Currently there are no trace-cmd related plugins, all of them
are designed to be used with libtraceeevnt. As both libtraceevent
and trace-cmd have logic for managing plugins, the one in trace-cmd
is redundant. Those redundant code is removed and replaced with calls
to libtraceeevnt plugin APIs. When trace-cmd has to load any plugins,
it uses libtraceeevnt to do the job.

All existing plugins are moved from plugins/ to lib/traceevent/plugins
directory, as all of them are designed to be used with the traceevent
library.

An initial infrastructure for trace-cmd specific plugins is added - 
new lib/trace-cmd/plugins directory and an initial set of APIs
for working with trace-cmd plugins.

Tzvetomir Stoyanov (1):
  trace-cmd: Change plugin install directories

Tzvetomir Stoyanov (VMware) (4):
  trace-cmd: Move libtraceevent plugins in its own directory.
  trace-cmd: Rename plugin_python to plugin_python_loader.
  trace-cmd: Load libtraceevent plugins from build folder, if exists.
  trace-cmd: Add initial infrastructure for trace-cmd specific plugins.

All existing plugins are moved from plugins/ to plugins/traceevent/
directory, as all of them (except plugin_python) are designed to be
used with the traceevent library. This change paves the way for
implementing trace-cmd specific plugins.

The plugin_python is renamed to plugin_python_loader, to make
the name more closer to the actual plugin role.

When a development version of trace-cmd is built and run on the machine,
by default it loads only installed plugins, from system directories.
Thus, the development plugins will not be loaded. To simplify the development
process, a new logic is added:
  At plugins load time, check the location of trace-cmd application and look
  for "plugins" directory around it. If found, load plugins from it. Those
  plugins will be loaded last, so in case of duplication the "development"
  plugins win.
A two new APIs are introduced to libtraceevent, in order to accomplish this
logic:
 tep_load_plugins_dir() - loads tep plugins from a specific directory.
 tep_plugins_append() - Append two plugin lists.

From: Tzvetomir Stoyanov <tstoyanov@vmware.com>

To be compliant with XDG user directory layout,
the user's plugin directory is changed from
~/.traceevent/plugins to ~/.local/lib/traceevent/plugins/

Thanks to Patrick McLean:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-trace-devel/20190313144206.41e75cf8@patrickm/

The system plugin directory is changed from
(install_prefix)/lib/trace-cmd/plugins to (install_prefix)/lib/traceevent/plugins
This change paves the way for implementing trace-cmd specific plugins.

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

Create a new directory lib/trace-cmd/plugins, where the libtracecmd
plugins will be placed. Plugins compilation is integrated in
the trace-cmd build process. New plugins are installed in
$(HOME)/.local/lib/trace-cmd/plugins or $(libdir)/trace-cmd/plugins directories.
Current python_plugin.so is part of libtraceevent plugins, so the python
plugins path is changed from
$(HOME)/.trace-cmd/python to $(HOME)/.local/lib/traceevent/python
and
$(libdir)/trace-cmd/python to $(libdir)/traceevent/python

Added an initial set of APIs for working with trace-cmd plugins.

Hi Tzvetomir,

Not sure if you noticed, but I pulled in parts of this patch series as
they were not dependent on the patches is question.

I'll take a look at the patches not yet in the series.

Thanks!

We should probably break this patch up into two. One that adds the new
interface to libtraceevent (making it easier to send to upstream
libtraceevent), and then one that uses it in trace-cmd.

And we should probably update the man pages when adding the tep_*()
patches. That said, I have some comments about this.

I think it would be better to be able to add paths to the tep, and then
call "tep_load_plugins()". That is:

	path = get_source_plugins_dir();
	if (path)
		tep_add_plugin_path(tep, path);

	list = tep_load_plugins(tep);

And have the tep_load_plugins() do all the work, and not have a
tep_plugins_append(). That append function is exposing too much of the
implementation of the tep code.
