[PATCH v1 0/2] Improve preemptirq tracepoint usage




Hi,
These patches improve the design of preemptirq tracepoints, clean up
several of the ifdeffery and overall makes the feature configuration
cleaner and less confusing. It also uses the tracepoints infra for
the lockdep hooks for irqs on/off thus making a central point for all
users of the event (kernel/trace/trace_preemptirq.c).
Patches based on v4.16-rc5.

Changes since RFC [1]:
- handle case where lockdep warnings occur in tracepoint code (2/2)
- protect tracepoint probe registration in lockdep init by ifdef.

Joel Fernandes (2):
  tracing: Improve design of preemptirq tracepoints and its users
  tracepoint: Prevent false-positive lockdep warnings
