Merge tag 'trace-fixes-3.13-rc2' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace
Pull tracing fix from Steven Rostedt: "A regression showed up that there's a large delay when enabling all events. This was prevalent when FTRACE_SELFTEST was enabled which enables all events several times, and caused the system bootup to pause for over a minute. This was tracked down to an addition of a synchronize_sched() performed when system call tracepoints are unregistered. The synchronize_sched() is needed between the unregistering of the system call tracepoint and a deletion of a tracing instance buffer. But placing the synchronize_sched() in the unreg of *every* system call tracepoint is a bit overboard. A single synchronize_sched() before the deletion of the instance is sufficient" * tag 'trace-fixes-3.13-rc2' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace: tracing: Only run synchronize_sched() at instance deletion time
