[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH] tracing: Annotate ftrace_graph_notrace_hash pointer with __rcu

Amol Grover frextrite at gmail.com
Wed Feb 5 05:57:02 UTC 2020


Fix following instances of sparse error
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:5667:29: error: incompatible types in comparison
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:5813:21: error: incompatible types in comparison
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:5868:36: error: incompatible types in comparison
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:5870:25: error: incompatible types in comparison

Use rcu_dereference_protected to dereference the newly annotated pointer.
