Subject: [PATCH v2] sched,tracing: Correct trace_sched_pi_setprio() for deboosting
Date: Thu, 24 May 2018 15:26:48 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

Since commit b91473ff6e97 ("sched,tracing: Update
trace_sched_pi_setprio()") the sched_pi_setprio trace point shows the
"newprio" during a deboost:
|futex sched_pi_setprio: comm=futex_requeue_p pid=2234 oldprio=98 newprio=98
|futex sched_switch: prev_comm=futex_requeue_p prev_pid=2234 prev_prio=120

This patch open codes __rt_effective_prio() in the tracepoint as the
`newprio' to get the old behaviour back / the correct priority:

|futex sched_pi_setprio: comm=futex_requeue_p pid=2220 oldprio=98 newprio=120
|futex sched_switch: prev_comm=futex_requeue_p prev_pid=2220 prev_prio=120

Peter suggested to open code the new priority so people using tracehook
could get the deadline data out.

suggested by PeterZ.
