[PATCH 0/5] Add glob pattern matching support on trigger andkprobe-event

From: Masami Hiramatsu
Date: Thu May 16 2013 - 07:51:29 EST


Here is a series of ftrace/perf updates to support multiple
event select operation by glob-based wild cards.
I've ported strglobmatch from perf-tools (with recursive call
limitation) for this use. It is easier to use (just replacing
strcmp) but slower than current parser-based matching.
I don't care about the speed of matching because the all of
the matching which I've introduced in this series are done
on slow-path.


Masami Hiramatsu (5):
[BUGFIX] tracing: Returns -EBUSY when event_enable_func fails to get module
perf: Reorder parameters of strglobmatch
lib/string: Add a generic wildcard string matching function
tracing/kprobes: Allow user to delete kprobe events by wild cards
tracing: Support enable/disable multiple events trigger by wild cards
