Subject[PATCH -tip v8 26/26] ftrace: Introduce FTRACE_OPS_FL_SELF_FILTER for ftrace-kprobe
From
Date
Since the kprobes itself owns a hash table to get a kprobe
data structure corresponding to the given ip address, there
is no need to test ftrace hash in ftrace side.
To achive better performance on ftrace-based kprobe,
FTRACE_OPS_FL_SELF_FILTER flag to ftrace_ops which means
that ftrace skips testing its own hash table.

Without this patch, ftrace_lookup_ip() is biggest cycles
consumer when 20,000 kprobes are enabled.
----
Samples: 1K of event 'cycles', Event count (approx.): 340068894
+ 20.77% [k] ftrace_lookup_ip
+ 8.33% [k] kprobe_trace_func
+ 4.83% [k] get_kprobe_cached
----

With this patch, ftrace_lookup_ip() vanished from the
cycles consumer list (of course, there is no caller on
hotpath anymore :))
----
Samples: 1K of event 'cycles', Event count (approx.): 186861492
+ 9.95% [k] kprobe_trace_func
+ 6.00% [k] kprobe_ftrace_handler
+ 5.53% [k] get_kprobe_cached
----

Changes from v7:
- Re-evaluate the performance improvement.
