Subject: [PATCH] x86/vmware: Do not trace vmware_sched_clock()
Date: Fri, 9 Nov 2018 15:22:07 -0500
Message-ID: <20181109152207.4d3e7d70@gandalf.local.home> (raw)

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

When running function tracing on a Linux guest running on VMware
Workstation, the guest would crash. This is due to tracing of the
sched_clock internal call of the VMware vmware_sched_clock(), which
causes an infinite recursion within the tracing code (clock calls must
not be traced).

Make vmware_sched_clock() not traced by ftrace.
