Weimin Pan - Oct. 4, 2019, 8:23 p.m.
To avoid confusion with the Compact ANSI-C Type Format (CTF), rename
ctf.[ch] to tracectf.[ch].

gdb/ChangeLog
+2019-10-04  Weimin Pan  <weimin.pan@oracle.com>
+
+	* tracectf.h: Rename, was ctf.h.
+	* tracectf.c: Rename, was ctf.c, replace ctf.h with tracectf.h.
+	* tracefile.c: Likewise.
+	* tracepoint.c: Remove unused include ctf.h.
+	* mi/mi-main.c: Likewise.
+	* Makefile.in Replace ctf.c with tracectf.c.

-/* GDB saves trace buffers and other information (such as trace
-   status) got from the remote target into Common Trace Format (CTF).
-   The following types of information are expected to save in CTF:
-
-   1. The length (in bytes) of register cache.  Event "register" will
-   be defined in metadata, which includes the length.
-
-   2. Trace status.  Event "status" is defined in metadata, which
-   includes all aspects of trace status.
-
-   3. Uploaded trace variables.  Event "tsv_def" is defined in
-   metadata, which is about all aspects of a uploaded trace variable.
-   Uploaded tracepoints.   Event "tp_def" is defined in meta, which
-   is about all aspects of an uploaded tracepoint.  Note that the
-   "sequence" (a CTF type, which is a dynamically-sized array.) is
-   used for "actions" "step_actions" and "cmd_strings".
-
-   4. Trace frames.  Each trace frame is composed by several blocks
-   of different types ('R', 'M', 'V').  One trace frame is saved in
-   one CTF packet and the blocks of this frame are saved as events.
-   4.1: The trace frame related information (such as the number of
-   tracepoint associated with this frame) is saved in the packet
-   context.
-   4.2: The block 'M', 'R' and 'V' are saved in event "memory",
-   "register" and "tsv" respectively.
-   4.3: When iterating over events, babeltrace can't tell iterator
-   goes to a new packet, so we need a marker or anchor to tell GDB
-   that iterator goes into a new packet or frame.  We define event
-   "frame".  */

+   status) got from the remote target into Common Trace Format (CTF).
+   The following types of information are expected to save in CTF:
+
+   1. The length (in bytes) of register cache.  Event "register" will
+   be defined in metadata, which includes the length.
+
+   2. Trace status.  Event "status" is defined in metadata, which
+   includes all aspects of trace status.
+
+   3. Uploaded trace variables.  Event "tsv_def" is defined in
+   metadata, which is about all aspects of a uploaded trace variable.
+   Uploaded tracepoints.   Event "tp_def" is defined in meta, which
+   is about all aspects of an uploaded tracepoint.  Note that the
+   "sequence" (a CTF type, which is a dynamically-sized array.) is
+   used for "actions" "step_actions" and "cmd_strings".
+
+   4. Trace frames.  Each trace frame is composed by several blocks
+   of different types ('R', 'M', 'V').  One trace frame is saved in
+   one CTF packet and the blocks of this frame are saved as events.
+   4.1: The trace frame related information (such as the number of
+   tracepoint associated with this frame) is saved in the packet
+   context.
+   4.2: The block 'M', 'R' and 'V' are saved in event "memory",
+   "register" and "tsv" respectively.
+   4.3: When iterating over events, babeltrace can't tell iterator
+   goes to a new packet, so we need a marker or anchor to tell GDB
+   that iterator goes into a new packet or frame.  We define event
+   "frame".  */
