[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4] xen: make tracebuffer configurable

Posted by Baodong Chen 6 days ago
Xen internal running status(trace event at pre-defined trace point)
will be saved to trace memory when enabled.
Trace event data and config params can be read/changed
by system control hypercall at run time.

Can be disabled for smaller code footprint.

Tracing bits

Acked-by: George Dunlap <george.dunlap@citrix.com.

I'd appreciate if someone could ack the config bits.
