      tracing: Add __field_struct macro for TRACE_EVENT() · 4d4c9cc8
      Steven Rostedt authored
      Currently the __field() macro in TRACE_EVENT is only good for primitive
      values, such as integers and pointers, but it fails on complex data types
      such as structures or unions. This is because the __field() macro
      determines if the variable is signed or not with the test of:
        (((type)(-1)) < (type)1)
      Unfortunately, that fails when type is a structure.
      Since trace events should support structures as fields a new macro
      is created for such a case called __field_struct() which acts exactly
      the same as __field() does but it does not do the signed type check
      and just uses a constant false for that answer.

      tracing/events: Move TRACE_SYSTEM outside of include guard · d0b6e04a
      Li Zefan authored
      If TRACE_INCLDUE_FILE is defined, <trace/events/TRACE_INCLUDE_FILE.h>
      will be included and compiled, otherwise it will be
      So TRACE_SYSTEM should be defined outside of #if proctection,
      just like TRACE_INCLUDE_FILE.
      Imaging this scenario:
       #include <trace/events/foo.h>
          -> TRACE_SYSTEM == foo
       #include <trace/events/bar.h>
          -> TRACE_SYSTEM == bar
       #define CREATE_TRACE_POINTS
       #include <trace/events/foo.h>
          -> TRACE_SYSTEM == bar !!!
      and then bar.h will be included and compiled.

      tracing: update sample with TRACE_INCLUDE_FILE · 71e1c8ac
      Steven Rostedt authored
      When creating trace events for ftrace, the header file with the TRACE_EVENT
      macros must also have a macro called TRACE_SYSTEM. This macro describes
      the name of the system the TRACE_EVENTS are defined for. It also doubles
      as a way for the define_trace.h file to include the file that included
      For example:
      in irq.h
       #define TRACE_SYSTEM irq
       #include <trace/define_trace.h>
      The define_trace will use TRACE_SYSTEM to include irq.h. But if the name
      of the trace system does not match the name of the trace header file,
      one can override it with:
      Which will change define_trace.h to inclued foo_trace.h instead of foo.h
      The sample comments this, but people that use the sample code will more
      likely use the code and not read the comments. This patch changes the
      sample code to use the TRACE_INCLUDE_FILE to better show developers how to
      use it.
      [ Impact: make sample less confusing to developers ]
