tracing: Fix warning in s_next of trace file ops
Lai Jiangshan [Tue, 2 Mar 2010 09:54:50 +0000 (17:54 +0800)]
This warning in s_next() can be triggered by lseek():
 [<c018b3f7>] ? s_next+0x77/0x80
 [<c013e3c1>] warn_slowpath_common+0x81/0xa0
 [<c018b3f7>] ? s_next+0x77/0x80
 [<c013e3fa>] warn_slowpath_null+0x1a/0x20
 [<c018b3f7>] s_next+0x77/0x80
 [<c01efa77>] traverse+0x117/0x200
 [<c01eff13>] seq_lseek+0xa3/0x120
 [<c01efe70>] ? seq_lseek+0x0/0x120
 [<c01d7081>] vfs_llseek+0x41/0x50
 [<c01d8116>] sys_llseek+0x66/0xa0
 [<c0102bd0>] sysenter_do_call+0x12/0x26

The iterator "leftover" variable is zeroed in the opening of the trace
file. But lseek can call s_start() which will call s_next() without
reseting the "leftover" variable back to zero, which might trigger
the WARN_ON_ONCE(iter->leftover) that is in s_next().
