Description Josh Stone 2010-06-02 19:30:11 UTC
Kernel v2.6.32 shipped with both "include/trace/power.h" and "include/trace/events/power.h".  The former is superseded by the latter, introduced in commit 6161352.  Commit 192dcf1 cleans this up, but unfortunately not until 2.6.33.

This is tripping up SystemTap, which uses automatic scans to find tracepoints under include/trace/.  We end up trying to use both power.h's, which mask each other by the duplicate _TRACE_POWER_H.

$ stap -e 'probe kernel.trace("power*") { next }' -p4
