[PATCH v2 2/2] tracing/events: block: dev_t via driver core for plug and unplug events




Complements v2.6.31 commit 55782138e47d ("tracing/events: convert block
trace points to TRACE_EVENT()") to be equivalent to traditional blktrace
output. Also this allows event filtering to not always get all (un)plug
events.

NB: The NULL pointer check for q->kobj.parent is certainly racy and
I don't have enough experience if it's good enough for a trace event.
The change did work for my cases (block device read/write I/O on
zfcp-attached SCSI disks and dm-mpath on top).

While I haven't seen any prior art using driver core (parent) relations
for trace events, there are other cases using this when no direct pointer
exists between objects, such as:
 #define to_scsi_target(d)	container_of(d, struct scsi_target, dev)
 static inline struct scsi_target *scsi_target(struct scsi_device *sdev)
 {
	return to_scsi_target(sdev->sdev_gendev.parent);
 }

This is the object model we make use of here:

struct gendisk {
        struct hd_struct {
                struct device {      /*container_of*/
                        struct kobject kobj; <--+
                        dev_t  devt; /*deref*/  |
                } __dev;                        |
        } part0;                                |
        struct request_queue *queue; ..+        |
}                                      :        |
                                       :        |
struct request_queue {  <..............+        |
        /* queue kobject */                     |
        struct kobject {                        |
                struct kobject *parent; --------+
        } kobj;
}

The parent pointer comes from:
 #define disk_to_dev(disk)	(&(disk)->part0.__dev)
int blk_register_queue(struct gendisk *disk)
	struct device *dev = disk_to_dev(disk);
	struct request_queue *q = disk->queue;
	ret = kobject_add(&q->kobj, kobject_get(&dev->kobj), "%s", "queue");
	                            ^^^parent

$ ls -d /sys/block/sdf/queue
/sys/block/sda/queue
$ cat /sys/block/sdf/dev
80:0

A partition does not have its own request queue:

$ cat /sys/block/sdf/sdf1/dev
8:81
$ ls -d /sys/block/sdf/sdf1/queue
ls: cannot access '/sys/block/sdf/sdf1/queue': No such file or directory

The difference to blktrace parsed output is that block events don't use the
partition's minor number but the containing block device's minor number:

$ dd if=/dev/sdf1 count=1
