[PATCH 3.18 071/144] tracing: Fix enabling of syscall events on the command line




3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit ce1039bd3a89e99e4f624e75fb1777fc92d76eb3 ]

Commit 5f893b2639b2 "tracing: Move enabling tracepoints to just after
rcu_init()" broke the enabling of system call events from the command
line. The reason was that the enabling of command line trace events
was moved before PID 1 started, and the syscall tracepoints require
that all tasks have the TIF_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINT flag set. But the
swapper task (pid 0) is not part of that. Since the swapper task is the
only task that is running at this early in boot, no task gets the
flag set, and the tracepoint never gets reached.

Instead of setting the swapper task flag (there should be no reason to
do that), re-enabled trace events again after the init thread (PID 1)
has been started. It requires disabling all command line events and
re-enabling them, as just enabling them again will not reset the logic
to set the TIF_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINT flag, as the syscall tracepoint will
be fooled into thinking that it was already set, and wont try setting
it again. For this reason, we must first disable it and re-enable it.
