. Disable strace like syscall tracing (--no-syscalls), or try tracing
just some (-e *sleep).
. Attach a filter function to a kernel function, returning when it should
be considered, i.e. appear on the output.
. Run it system wide, so that any sleep of >= 5 seconds and < than 6
seconds gets caught.
. Ask for callgraphs using DWARF info, so that userspace can be unwound
. While this is running, run something like "sleep 5s".
. If we decide to add tv_nsec as well, then it becomes:
int probe(hrtimer_nanosleep, rqtp->tv_sec rqtp->tv_nsec)(void *ctx, int err, long sec, long nsec)
I.e. add where it comes from (rqtp->tv_nsec) and where it will be
accessible in the function body (nsec)
