Subject: [PATCH 2/3] [BUGFIX] ring_buffer: tracing: Inherit the tracing setting to next ring buffer
Date: Sat, 14 Jul 2018 01:28:15 +0900
Message-ID: <153149929558.11274.11730609978254724394.stgit@devbox> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <153149923649.11274.14970833360963898112.stgit@devbox>

Inherit the tracing on/off setting on ring_buffer to next
trace buffer when taking a snapshot.

Taking a snapshot is done by swapping with backup ring buffer
(max_tr_buffer). But since the tracing on/off setting is set
in the ring buffer, when swapping it, tracing on/off setting
can also be changed. This causes a strange result like below;

  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing # cat tracing_on
  1
  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing # echo 0 > tracing_on
  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing # echo 1 > snapshot
  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing # cat tracing_on
  1
  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing # echo 1 > snapshot
  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing # cat tracing_on
  0

We don't touch tracing_on, but snapshot changes tracing_on
setting each time. This must be a bug, because user never know
that each "ring_buffer" stores tracing-enable state and
snapshot is done by swapping ring buffers.

This patch fixes above strange behavior.

Fixes: commit debdd57f5145 ("tracing: Make a snapshot feature available from userspace")
