3.2.54-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit c842e975520f8ab09e293cc92f51a1f396251fd5 upstream.

When disabling the "notrace" records, that means we want to trace them.
If the notrace_hash is zero, it means that we want to trace all
records. But to disable a zero notrace_hash means nothing.

The check for the notrace_hash count was incorrect with:

if (hash && !hash->count)

With the correct comment above it that states that we do nothing
if the notrace_hash has zero count. But !hash also means that
the notrace hash has zero count. I think this was done to
protect against dereferencing NULL. But if !hash is true, then
we go through the following loop without doing a single thing.

Fix it to:

if (!hash || !hash->count)
