Subject[PATCH v8 11/11] tracing/user_events: Limit global user_event count
Date
Operators want to be able to ensure enough tracepoints exist on the
system for kernel components as well as for user components. Since there
are only up to 64K events, by default allow up to half to be used by
user events.

Add a boot parameter (user_events_max=%d) and a kernel sysctl parameter
(kernel.user_events_max) to set a global limit that is honored among all
groups on the system. This ensures hard limits can be setup to prevent
user processes from consuming all event IDs on the system.
