I applied this, but it failed to build:
CC [M] drivers/staging/lttng/ltt-ring-buffer-client-discard.o
In file included from drivers/staging/lttng/ltt-tracer.h:24:0,
drivers/staging/lttng/wrapper/trace-clock.h: In function ‘get_trace_clock’:
drivers/staging/lttng/wrapper/trace-clock.h:66:2: warning: #warning "LTTng: Using mainline kernel monotonic clock. NMIs will not be traced, and expect significant performance degradation compared to the LTTng trace clocks. Integration of the LTTng 0.x trace clocks into LTTng 2.0 is planned in a near future." [-Wcpp]

The build warning is a bit harsh, and should be a Kconfig option or a run-time
kernel log message, please fix that. No new code should ever add build
warnings, especially ones like this.
The build error isn't ok, so I can't apply this series, sorry :(
Care to fix this up and resend?
