Merge tag 'trace-v4.6' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace
Pull tracing updates from Steven Rostedt: "Nothing major this round. Mostly small clean ups and fixes. Some visible changes: - A new flag was added to distinguish traces done in NMI context. - Preempt tracer now shows functions where preemption is disabled but interrupts are still enabled. Other notes: - Updates were done to function tracing to allow better performance with perf. - Infrastructure code has been added to allow for a new histogram feature for recording live trace event histograms that can be configured by simple user commands. The feature itself was just finished, but needs a round in linux-next before being pulled. This only includes some infrastructure changes that will be needed" * tag 'trace-v4.6' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace: (22 commits) tracing: Record and show NMI state tracing: Fix trace_printk() to print when not using bprintk() tracing: Remove redundant reset per-CPU buff in irqsoff tracer x86: ftrace: Fix the misleading comment for arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c tracing: Fix crash from reading trace_pipe with sendfile tracing: Have preempt(irqs)off trace preempt disabled functions tracing: Fix return while holding a lock in register_tracer() ftrace: Use kasprintf() in ftrace_profile_tracefs() ftrace: Update dynamic ftrace calls only if necessary ftrace: Make ftrace_hash_rec_enable return update bool tracing: Fix typoes in code comment and printk in trace_nop.c tracing, writeback: Replace cgroup path to cgroup ino tracing: Use flags instead of bool in trigger structure tracing: Add an unreg_all() callback to trigger commands tracing: Add needs_rec flag to event triggers tracing: Add a per-event-trigger 'paused' field tracing: Add get_syscall_name() tracing: Add event record param to trigger_ops.func() tracing: Make event trigger functions available tracing: Make ftrace_event_field checking functions available ...
