tracing: Add hist trigger support for pausing and continuing a trace
Allow users to append 'pause' or 'continue' to an existing trigger in order to have it paused or to have a paused trace continue. This expands the hist trigger syntax from this: # echo hist:keys=xxx:vals=yyy:sort=zzz.descending \ [ if filter] >> event/trigger to this: # echo hist:keys=xxx:vals=yyy:sort=zzz.descending:pause or cont \ [ if filter] >> event/trigger Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/b672a92c14702cb924cdf6fc27ea1809bed04907.1457029949.git.tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com> Tested-by: Masami Hiramatsu <masami.hiramatsu.pt@hitachi.com> Reviewed-by: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
