[
   This is a treewide change. I will likely re-create this patch again in
   the second week of the merge window of v6.10 and submit it then. Hoping
   to keep the conflicts that it will cause to a minimum.
]

With the rework of how the __string() handles dynamic strings where it
saves off the source string in field in the helper structure[1], the
assignment of that value to the trace event field is stored in the helper
value and does not need to be passed in again.

This means that with:

  __string(field, mystring)

Which use to be assigned with __assign_str(field, mystring), no longer
needs the second parameter and it is unused. With this, __assign_str()
will now only get a single parameter.

There's over 700 users of __assign_str() and because coccinelle does not
handle the TRACE_EVENT() macro I ended up using the following sed script:

  git grep -l __assign_str | while read a ; do
      sed -e 's/\(__assign_str([^,]*[^ ,]\) *,[^;]*/\1)/' $a > /tmp/test-file;
      mv /tmp/test-file $a;
  done

I then searched for __assign_str() that did not end with ';' as those
were multi line assignments that the sed script above would fail to catch.

Note, the same updates will need to be done for:

  __assign_str_len()
  __assign_rel_str()
  __assign_rel_str_len()

I tested this with both an allmodconfig and an allyesconfig (build only for both).

Acked-by: Christian König <christian.koenig@amd.com> for the amdgpu parts.

We will try to not upstream any new trace points in 6.10.

Christian.

/me finds this pretty magical, but such is the way of macros.

This is with the patch applied on top of v6.9-8410-gff2632d7d08e.
So far that seems to be the only build failure.
Introduced with commit 6aec00139d3a8 ("cxl/core: Add region info to
cxl_general_media and cxl_dram events"). Guess we'll see more of those

Looks like I made this patch just before this commit was pulled into
Linus's tree.

Which is why I'll apply and rerun the above again probably on Tuesday of
next week against Linus's latest.

This patch made it through both an allyesconfig and an allmodconfig, but on
the commit I had applied it to, which was:

  1b294a1f3561 ("Merge tag 'net-next-6.10' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/netdev/net-next")

I'll be compiling those two builds after I update it then.

I am currently repeating my test builds with the above errors fixed.
That should take a couple of hours. I'll let you know how it goes.
