Subject: [PATCH] tracing/kprobes: allow to create probe with a module name starting with a digit
Date: Thu, 22 Jun 2017 11:24:42 +0200
Message-ID: <fd72d666f45b114e2c5b9cf7e27b91de1ec966f1.1498122881.git.sd@queasysnail.net> (raw)

Always try to parse an address, since kstrtoul() will safely fail when
given a symbol as input. If that fails (which will be the case for a
symbol), try to parse a symbol instead.

This allows creating a probe such as:

    p:probe/vlan_gro_receive 8021q:vlan_gro_receive+0

Which is necessary for this command to work:

    perf probe -m 8021q -a vlan_gro_receive
