Now, unused memory is handled by struct tp_probes.

old code use these three field to handle unused memory.
struct tracepoint_entry {
	...
	struct rcu_head rcu;
	void *oldptr;
	unsigned char rcu_pending:1;
	...
};
in this way, unused memory is handled by struct tracepoint_entry.
it bring reenter bug(it was fixed) and tracepoint.c is filled
full of ".*rcu.*" code statements. this patch remove all these.

and:
  rcu_barrier_sched() is removed.
  Do not need regain tracepoints_mutex after tracepoint_update_probes()
  several little cleanup.

Mathieu Desnoyers :
Update patch to make sure it applies correctly on top of
tracepoint-check-if-the-probe-has-been-registered.patch

[-- Attachment #1: tracepoint-introduce-noupdate-apis.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 7553 bytes --]

new APIs separate tracepoint_probe_register(),
tracepoint_probe_unregister() into 2 steps. The first step of them
is just update tracepoint_entry, not connect or disconnect.

this patch introduce tracepoint_probe_update_all() for update all.

these APIs are very useful for registering a lots of probes
but just update once only. and a very important thing is that
*_noupdate APIs do not require module_mutex.

Mathieu Desnoyers : Refreshed for -tip.

it bring reenter bug(it was fixed) and tracepoint.c is filled

Ok, I had to bring my head into this code again. So yes, it looks good.
I originally used the RCU the way I did because this code evolved from
markers, where I had special-cases for 0/1 probes connected which
required to way a quiescent state between two consecutive
register/unregister on the same probe.

In the tracepoints, because the probe array is replaced by a newly
allocated memory entry each time, and the old array can wait for any
given time to be freed by RCU, we don't have to wait.

So yes, this patch is good.

Thanks Lay!

Now, unused memory is handled by struct tp_probes.

old code use these three field to handle unused memory.
struct tracepoint_entry {
	...
	struct rcu_head rcu;
	void *oldptr;
	unsigned char rcu_pending:1;
	...
};
in this way, unused memory is handled by struct tracepoint_entry.
it bring reenter bug(it was fixed) and tracepoint.c is filled
full of ".*rcu.*" code statements. this patch remove all these.

and:
  rcu_barrier_sched() is removed.
  Do not need regain tracepoints_mutex after tracepoint_update_probes()
  several little cleanup.
