[PATCH v7 30/37] tracing: Add hist trigger support for variable reference aliases




Add support for alias=$somevar where alias can be used as
onmatch.xxx($alias).

Aliases are a way of creating a new name for an existing variable, for
flexibly in making naming more clear in certain cases.  For example in
the below the user perhaps feels that using $new_lat in the synthetic
event invocation is opaque or doesn't fit well stylistically with
previous triggers, so creates an alias of $new_lat named $latency and
uses that in the call instead:

  # echo 'hist:keys=next_pid:new_lat=common_timestamp.usecs' >
    /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_switch/trigger

  # echo 'hist:keys=pid:latency=$new_lat:
    onmatch(sched.sched_switch).wake2($latency,pid)' >
    /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/synthetic/wake1/trigger
