Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 26/31] MIPS: Fix kernel hang under FUNCTION_GRAPH_TRACER and PREEMPT_TRACER
Date
From: Tiezhu Yang <yangtiezhu@loongson.cn>

[ Upstream commit 78cf0eb926cb1abeff2106bae67752e032fe5f3e ]

When update the latest mainline kernel with the following three configs,
the kernel hangs during startup:

(1) CONFIG_FUNCTION_GRAPH_TRACER=y
(2) CONFIG_PREEMPT_TRACER=y
(3) CONFIG_FTRACE_STARTUP_TEST=y

When update the latest mainline kernel with the above two configs (1)
and (2), the kernel starts normally, but it still hangs when execute
the following command:

echo "function_graph" > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/current_tracer

Without CONFIG_PREEMPT_TRACER=y, the above two kinds of kernel hangs
disappeared, so it seems that CONFIG_PREEMPT_TRACER has some influences
with function_graph tracer at the first glance.

I use ejtag to find out the epc address is related with preempt_enable()
in the file arch/mips/lib/mips-atomic.c, because function tracing can
trace the preempt_{enable,disable} calls that are traced, replace them
with preempt_{enable,disable}_notrace to prevent function tracing from
going into an infinite loop, and then it can fix the kernel hang issue.

By the way, it seems that this commit is a complement and improvement of
commit f93a1a00f2bd ("MIPS: Fix crash that occurs when function tracing
is enabled").
