You can check both if the event has been disabled and is dynamically enabled at
the same time using the 'trace_event_get_state' routine (see header
"trace/control.h" for more information).
+=== "tcg" ===
+Guest code generated by TCG can be traced by defining an event with the "tcg"
+event property. Internally, this property generates two events:
+"<eventname>_trans" to trace the event at translation time, and
+"<eventname>_exec" to trace the event at execution time.
+Instead of using these two events, you should instead use the function
+"trace_<eventname>_tcg" during translation (TCG code generation). This function
+will automatically call "trace_<eventname>_trans", and will generate the
+necessary TCG code to call "trace_<eventname>_exec" during guest code execution.
+Events with the "tcg" property can be declared in the "trace-events" file with a
+mix of native and TCG types, and "trace_<eventname>_tcg" will gracefully forward
+them to the "<eventname>_trans" and "<eventname>_exec" events. Since TCG values
+are not known at translation time, these are ignored by the "<eventname>_trans"
+event. Because of this, the entry in the "trace-events" file needs two printing
+formats (separated by a comma):
+ tcg foo(uint8_t a1, TCGv_i32 a2) "a1=%d", "a1=%d a2=%d"
+ #include "trace-tcg.h"
+ void some_disassembly_func (...)
+ uint8_t a1 = ...;
+ TCGv_i32 a2 = ...;
+ trace_foo_tcg(a1, a2);
+This will immediately call:
+ void trace_foo_trans(uint8_t a1);
+and will generate the TCG code to call:
+ void trace_foo(uint8_t a1, uint32_t a2);
