+	_TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_OFF_,

+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This set of functions can be used to extract common fields from a record.
+
+The _tep_data_type()_ function gets the event id from the record _rec_.
+It reads the "common_type" field. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser
+context.
+
+The _tep_data_pid()_ function gets the process id from the record _rec_.
+It reads the "common_pid" field. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser
+context.
+
+The _tep_data_preempt_count()_ function gets the preemption count from the
+record _rec_. It reads the "common_preempt_count" field. The _tep_ argument is
+the trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_data_flags()_ function gets the latency flags from the record _rec_.
+It reads the "common_flags" field. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser
+context. Supported latency flags are:
+[verse]
+--
+	_TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_OFF_,		Interrupts are disabled.
+	_TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_NOSUPPORT_,	Reading IRQ flag is not supported by the architecture.
+	_TRACE_FLAG_NEED_RESCHED_,	Task needs rescheduling.
+	_TRACE_FLAG_HARDIRQ_,		Hard IRQ is running.
+	_TRACE_FLAG_SOFTIRQ_,		Soft IRQ is running.
+--
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_data_type()_ function returns an integer, representing the event id.
+
+The _tep_data_pid()_ function returns an integer, representing the process id
+
+The _tep_data_preempt_count()_ function returns an integer, representing the
+preemption count.
+
+The _tep_data_flags()_ function returns an integer, representing the latency
+flags. Look at the _trace_flag_type_ enum for supported flags.
+
+All these functions in case of an error return a negative integer.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+void process_record(struct tep_record *record)
+{
+	int data;
+
+	data = tep_data_type(tep, record);
+	if (data >= 0) {
+		/* Got the ID of the event */
+	}
+
+	data = tep_data_pid(tep, record);
+	if (data >= 0) {
+		/* Got the process ID */
+	}
+
+	data = tep_data_preempt_count(tep, record);
+	if (data >= 0) {
+		/* Got the preemption count */
+	}
+
+	data = tep_data_flags(tep, record);
+	if (data >= 0) {
+		/* Got the latency flags */
+	}
+}
