[PATCH 0/9] arm64: add more accurate code for tracing the hardirq flags changes

From: Huang Shijie
Date: Sun May 29 2016 - 22:53:23 EST

In the current arm64 code, we trace the hardirq flags change occasionally.
Sometimes, the trace code is buggy, such as the el0_irq.

This patch sets
0.) in order to avoid the save/restore registers, add patches to adjust
the code.
1.) add the trace code at the entry/exit,
2.) add the trace code at the irq macros.
3.) removes the duplicated trace code.

enabled in the Juno-r1 board.

The whole patch set is based on the patch:

Thanks to the code review of Steve/James/Mark, I really appriciate it.

Huang Shijie (9):
arm64: entry: use the callee-saved registers to save some registers
arm64: entry: add a new macro to restore the registers for syscall
arm64: entry: record the hardirq changes on the entry/exit code
arm64: entry: remove the duplicated code for tracing the IRQ flags
arm64: entry: only restore the syscall registers once
arm64: entry: adjust el1_sync so that a function can be called
arm64: entry: save the x0 back into the stack before disabling the
arm64: add the hardirq flags trace code for irq macros
arm64: entry: remove the duplicated hardirq flags trace code
