[PATCH v5 13/19] tracing: probeevent: Add symbol type

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Add "symbol" type to probeevent, which is an alias of u32 or u64
(depends on BITS_PER_LONG). This shows the result value in
symbol+offset style. This type is only available with kprobe

Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@xxxxxxxxxx>
 Changes in v2:
  - Add symbol type to README file.
