[PATCH v7 00/16] tracing: probeevent: Improve fetcharg features

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



This is the 7th version of the fetch-arg improvement series.
This includes variable changes on fetcharg framework like,

- Add fetcharg testcases (syntax, argN, symbol, string and array)
  and probepoint testcase.
- Rewrite fetcharg framework with fetch_insn, switch-case based
  instead of function pointer.
- Add "symbol" type support, which shows symbol+offset instead of
  address value.
- Add "$argN" fetcharg, which fetches function parameters.
  (currently only for x86-64)
- Add array type support (including string arrary :) ) ,
  which enables to get fixed length array from probe-events.
- Add array type support for perf-probe, so that user can
  dump partial array entries.

V6 is here:

Changes from the v6 are here:
 [6/16]  - Fix to return an error if failed to fetch string and
        fill zero-length data_loc in error case.
 [11/16] - Update document for restructured text.
 [15/16] - Fix README test.
 [16/16] - Add type-casting description (and note) to documentation.

And rebased on the latest Steve's ftrace/core branch.

Thank you,
