The actual kernel side patches were only applied a week ago: 33ea4b24277b: perf/core: Implement the 'perf_uprobe' PMU include/linux/trace_events.h | 4 ++++ kernel/events/core.c | 48 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++- kernel/trace/trace_event_perf.c | 53 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ kernel/trace/trace_probe.h | 4 ++++ kernel/trace/trace_uprobe.c | 86 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++-------- 5 files changed, 186 insertions(+), 9 deletions(-) e12f03d7031a: perf/core: Implement the 'perf_kprobe' PMU include/linux/trace_events.h | 4 ++++ kernel/events/core.c | 142 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++----------------------------------- kernel/trace/trace_event_perf.c | 49 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ kernel/trace/trace_kprobe.c | 91 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++-------- kernel/trace/trace_probe.h | 7 +++++++ 5 files changed, 250 insertions(+), 43 deletions(-) Commit: Ingo Molnar <mi...@kernel.org> CommitDate: Tue Feb 6 11:29:28 2018 +0100 They are also large and complex, so I can only send this to Linus in the v4.17 merge window. > We have few followups for them and if we don't get them via Linus's tree > into net-next/bpf-next we cannot really proceed further. > The other option would be to cherry-pick them into bpf-next/net-next, > but also a bit scary due to potential conflicts? No cherry-picking of such large patches please. But I suppose you could git-pull tip:perf/core into the BPF tree, it only has these changes: 33ea4b24277b: perf/core: Implement the 'perf_uprobe' PMU e12f03d7031a: perf/core: Implement the 'perf_kprobe' PMU 0d8dd67be013: perf/headers: Sync new perf_event.h with the tools/include/uapi version 65074d43fc77: perf/core: Prepare perf_event.h for new types: 'perf_kprobe' and 'perf_uprobe' ... on top of an upstream commit (59410f5ac70a). The risks are: - In the v4.17 merge window the BPF tree should only be sent to Linus once he has pulled the perf tree - i.e. there's a dependency. - If any of these commits needs serious fixes or a revert then that would have to be pulled into the BPF tree too later on. (I don't expect there to be many problems though, no regression was reported so far.) Thanks, Ingo
