x86: Fix trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() implementation
Michel Lespinasse [Thu, 6 Jun 2013 11:41:15 +0000 (04:41 -0700)]
The following change fixes the x86 implementation of
trigger_all_cpu_backtrace(), which was previously (accidentally,
as far as I can tell) disabled to always return false as on
architectures that do not implement this function.

trigger_all_cpu_backtrace(), as defined in include/linux/nmi.h,
should call arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() if available, or
return false if the underlying arch doesn't implement this
function.

x86 did provide a suitable arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace()
implementation, but it wasn't actually being used because it was
declared in asm/nmi.h, which linux/nmi.h doesn't include. Also,
linux/nmi.h couldn't easily be fixed by including asm/nmi.h,
because that file is not available on all architectures.

I am proposing to fix this by moving the x86 definition of
arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() to asm/irq.h.

Tested via: echo l > /proc/sysrq-trigger

Before the change, this uses a fallback implementation which
shows backtraces on active CPUs (using
smp_call_function_interrupt() )

After the change, this shows NMI backtraces on all CPUs
