[Qemu-devel] [PATCH for-2.0 v2] configure: add workaround for SystemTap

From: Stefan Hajnoczi
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH for-2.0 v2] configure: add workaround for SystemTap PR13296
Date: Fri, 21 Mar 2014 16:28:24 +0100

SystemTap sdt.h sometimes results in compiled probes without sufficient
information to extract arguments.  See code comment for details on this

This patch fixes the apic_reset_irq_delivered() trace event on Fedora 20
with gcc-4.8.2-7.fc20 and systemtap-sdt-devel-2.4-2.fc20 on x86_64.
