Merge tag 'trace-v5.13' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace
Pull tracing updates from Steven Rostedt:
- A new "func-no-repeats" option in tracefs/options directory.
When set the function tracer will detect if the current function
being traced is the same as the previous one, and instead of
recording it, it will keep track of the number of times that the
function is repeated in a row. And when another function is
recorded, it will write a new event that shows the function that
repeated, the number of times it repeated and the time stamp of
when the last repeated function occurred.
- In order to implement the above "func-no-repeats" option, the ring
buffer timestamp can now give the accurate timestamp of the event
as it is being recorded, instead of having to record an absolute
timestamp for all events. This helps the histogram code which no
longer needs to waste ring buffer space.
- New validation logic to make sure all trace events that access
dereferenced pointers do so in a safe way, and will warn otherwise.
- No longer limit the PIDs of tasks that are recorded for
"saved_cmdlines" to PID_MAX_DEFAULT (32768), as systemd now allows
for a much larger range. This caused the mapping of PIDs to the
task names to be dropped for all tasks with a PID greater than
- Change trace_clock_global() to never block. This caused a deadlock.
- Typos, prototype fixes, and removing of duplicate or unused code.
- Better management of ftrace_page allocations"
