Subject[PATCH ftrace/core] tracing: irqsoff: Account for additional preempt_disable
Date
Recently we tried to make the preemptirqsoff tracer to use irqsoff
tracepoint probes. However this causes issues as reported by Masami:

[2.271078] Testing tracer preemptirqsoff: .. no entries found ..FAILED!
[2.381015] WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 1 at /home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux/kernel/
trace/trace.c:1512 run_tracer_selftest+0xf3/0x154

This is due to the tracepoint code increasing the preempt nesting count
by calling an additional preempt_disable before calling into the
preemptoff tracer which messes up the preempt_count() check in
tracer_hardirqs_off.

To fix this, make the irqsoff tracer probes balance the additional outer
preempt_disable with a preempt_enable_notrace.

The other way to fix this is to just use SRCU for all tracepoints.
However we can't do that because we can't use NMIs from RCU context.

Fixes: c3bc8fd637a9 ("tracing: Centralize preemptirq tracepoints
and unify their usage")
Fixes: e6753f23d961 ("tracepoint: Make rcuidle tracepoint callers use SRCU")
