Subject[PATCH 4.14 063/124] x86/cpu/vmware: Do not trace vmware_sched_clock()
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Steven Rostedt (VMware) <rostedt@goodmis.org>

commit 15035388439f892017d38b05214d3cda6578af64 upstream.

When running function tracing on a Linux guest running on VMware
Workstation, the guest would crash. This is due to tracing of the
sched_clock internal call of the VMware vmware_sched_clock(), which
causes an infinite recursion within the tracing code (clock calls must
not be traced).

Make vmware_sched_clock() not traced by ftrace.

Fixes: 80e9a4f21fd7c ("x86/vmware: Add paravirt sched clock")
