[for-next-3.11][PATCH 0/8] ftrace/tracing: Event file fixes and ftrace function hash fixes

From: Steven Rostedt
Date: Tue Jul 30 2013 - 07:33:17 EST

Oleg has been continuing his work on fixing a race between opening an
event file and deleting that same event. Using the i_private and event_mutex
to verify that the event still exists to solve the race.

A long standing bug on the ftrace hash accounting has finally been figured
out. When tracing a module that is removed and then reloaded, the function
filter hash gets out of sync with the function record's ref count which
causes a nasty warning and disabling of the function tracer.


Head SHA1: 6fd52fce057b55cc1bba463e6f05536a76c058b4

Oleg Nesterov (6):
tracing: Turn event/id->i_private into call->event.type
tracing: Change event_enable/disable_read() to verify i_private != NULL
tracing: Change event_filter_read/write to verify i_private != NULL
tracing: Change f_start() to take event_mutex and verify i_private != NULL
tracing: Introduce remove_event_file_dir()
tracing: Change remove_event_file_dir() to clear "d_subdirs"->i_private

Steven Rostedt (Red Hat) (2):
ftrace: Consolidate some duplicate code for updating ftrace ops
ftrace: Clear module traced functions on unload module
