Sorry should have specified this. The approach is to use trace
instances and filtering such that we only see events associated
with a specific trace_id. There's no need for the trace event to
actually display the trace_id - it's still usable as a filter.
The steps involved are:

1. create a trace instance within which we can specify a fresh
set of trace event enablings, filters etc.

mkdir /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/instances/traceid100

2. enable the filter for the specific trace id

echo "trace_id == 100" >
/sys/kernel/debug/tracing/instances/traceid100/events/bpf_trace/bpf_trace_printk/filter

3. enable the trace event

echo 1 >
/sys/kernel/debug/tracing/instances/events/bpf_trace/bpf_trace_printk/enable

4. ensure the BPF program uses a trace_id 100 when calling bpf_trace_btf()

So the above can be done for multiple programs; output can then
be separated for different programs if trace_ids and filtering are
used together. The above trace instance only sees bpf_trace_btf()
events which specify trace_id 100.

I've attached a tweaked version of the patch 4 in the patchset that
ensures that a trace instance with filtering enabled as above sees
the bpf_trace_btf events, but _not_ bpf_trace_printk events (since
they have trace_id 0 by default).

To me the above provides a simple way to separate BPF program output
for simple BPF programs; ringbuf and perf events require a bit more
work in both BPF and userspace to support such coordination. What do
you think - does this approach seem worth using? If so we could also
consider extending it to bpf_trace_printk(), if we can find a way
to provide a trace_id there too.

We can do that absolutely, but I'd be interested to get your take
on the filtering mechanism before taking that approach. I'll add
a description of the above mechanism to the cover letter and
patch to be clearer next time too.

Sure, I'll try and tackle that next time.

Patch 3 uses the first 4 as flags to bpf_trace_btf();
the final two are not supported for the helper as flag values
so I wanted to leave some space for additional bpf_trace_btf() flags.
BTF_SHOW_NONEWLINE is always used for bpf_trace_btf(), since the
tracing adds a newline for us and we don't want to double up on newlines,
so it's ORed in as an implicit argument for the bpf_trace_btf() case.
BTF_SHOW_UNSAFE isn't allowed within BPF so it's not available as
a flag for the helper.

Thanks!

Alan

Subject: [PATCH] selftests/bpf: add bpf_trace_btf helper tests

Basic tests verifying various flag combinations for bpf_trace_btf()
using a tp_btf program to trace skb data. Also verify that we
can create a trace instance to filter trace data, using the
trace_id value passed to bpf_trace/bpf_trace_printk events.

trace_id is specifiable for bpf_trace_btf() so the test ensures
the trace instance sees the filtered events only.
