[for-next][PATCH 20/30] tracing: Lock event_mutex before synth_event_mutex




From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@xxxxxxxxxx>

synthetic event is using synth_event_mutex for protecting
synth_event_list, and event_trigger_write() path acquires
locks as below order.

event_trigger_write(event_mutex)
  ->trigger_process_regex(trigger_cmd_mutex)
    ->event_hist_trigger_func(synth_event_mutex)

On the other hand, synthetic event creation and deletion paths
call trace_add_event_call() and trace_remove_event_call()
which acquires event_mutex. In that case, if we keep the
synth_event_mutex locked while registering/unregistering synthetic
events, its dependency will be inversed.

To avoid this issue, current synthetic event is using a 2 phase
process to create/delete events. For example, it searches existing
events under synth_event_mutex to check for event-name conflicts, and
unlocks synth_event_mutex, then registers a new event under event_mutex
locked. Finally, it locks synth_event_mutex and tries to add the
new event to the list. But it can introduce complexity and a chance
for name conflicts.

To solve this simpler, this introduces trace_add_event_call_nolock()
and trace_remove_event_call_nolock() which don't acquire
event_mutex inside. synthetic event can lock event_mutex before
synth_event_mutex to solve the lock dependency issue simpler.
