Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski - Dec. 13, 2012, 1:58 p.m. -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "David S. Miller" <>

commit e793d8c6740f8fe704fa216e95685f4d92c4c4b9 upstream.

There was a serious disconnect in the logic happening in
sparc_pmu_disable_event() vs. sparc_pmu_enable_event().

Event disable is implemented by programming a NOP event into the PCR.

However, event enable was not reversing this operation.  Instead, it
was setting the User/Priv/Hypervisor trace enable bits.

That's not sparc_pmu_enable_event()'s job, that's what
sparc_pmu_enable() and sparc_pmu_disable() do .

The intent of sparc_pmu_enable_event() is clear, since it first clear
out the event type encoding field.  So fix this by OR'ing in the event
encoding rather than the trace enable bits.
