Subject: [PATCH v3] tracing: add cond_resched to ftrace_replace_code()
Date: Tue,  4 Dec 2018 20:40:44 +0100
Message-ID: <20181204194044.9506-1-anders.roxell@linaro.org> (raw)

When running in qemu on an kernel built with allmodconfig and debug
options (in particular kcov and ubsan) enabled, ftrace_replace_code
function call take minutes. The ftrace selftest calls
ftrace_replace_code to look >40000 through
ftrace_make_call/ftrace_make_nop, and these end up calling
__aarch64_insn_write/aarch64_insn_patch_text_nosync.

Microseconds add up because this is called in a loop for each dyn_ftrace
record, and this triggers the softlockup watchdog unless we let it sleep
occasionally.

Rework so that we call cond_resched() if !irqs_disabled() && !preempt_count().
