Subject: [PATCH] synthetic tracing: Fix trace_string() return value
Date: Wed, 14 Feb 2024 23:05:56 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Fix trace_string() by assigning the string length to the return variable
which got lost in commit ddeea494a16f ("tracing/synthetic: Use union
instead of casts") and caused trace_string() to always return 0.
