tracing/function-graph-tracer: append the tracing_graph_flag
Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 6 Dec 2008 02:43:41 +0000 (03:43 +0100)]
Impact: Provide a way to pause the function graph tracer

As suggested by Steven Rostedt, the previous patch that prevented from
spinlock function tracing shouldn't use the raw_spinlock to fix it.
It's much better to follow lockdep with normal spinlock, so this patch
adds a new flag for each task to make the function graph tracer able
to be paused. We also can send an ftrace_printk whithout worrying of
the irrelevant traced spinlock during insertion.
