[PATCH RESEND 3/3] tracing/mm: Don't trace mm_page_pcpu_drain on offline cpus

From: Shreyas B. Prabhu
Date: Fri May 08 2015 - 13:22:02 EST

Since tracepoints use RCU for protection, they must not be called on
offline cpus. trace_mm_page_pcpu_drain can be called on an offline cpu
in this scenario caught by LOCKDEP:

[ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ]
4.1.0-rc1+ #9 Not tainted
include/trace/events/kmem.h:265 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!

other info that might help us debug this:

RCU used illegally from offline CPU!
rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 1
1 lock held by swapper/5/0:
#0: (&(&zone->lock)->rlock){..-...}, at: [<c0000000002073b0>] .free_pcppages_bulk+0x70/0x920

Fix this by converting mm_page_pcpu_drain trace point into TRACE_EVENT_CONDITION
where condition is cpu_online(smp_processor_id())
