[PATCH] blktrace: add timestamp message
Olaf Kirch [Fri, 1 Dec 2006 09:39:12 +0000 (10:39 +0100)]
This adds a new timestamp message to blktrace, giving the timeofday when
we starting tracing. This helps user space correlate block trace events
with eg an application strace.

This requires a (compatible) update to blkparse. The changed blkparse
is still able to process traces generated by older kernels, and older
versions of blkparse should silently ignore the new records (because
they have a pid of 0).
