According to this:

https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/v4.18/trace/events.html

 

If there is an error in the expression, you’ll get an ‘Invalid argument’ error when setting it.

Thanks.  jimmychan. 

 

I tried your idea. and finally find the way.

secondary_start_kernel  was not in the available_filter_functions  list. 

so , i tried another one. 

root@imx8mqevk:/sys/kernel/debug/tracing# cat available_filter_functions | grep -i secon
freeze_secondary_cpus
irq_forced_secondary_handler
ktime_get_seconds
ktime_get_real_seconds
__ktime_get_real_seconds
second_overflow
acpi_ns_get_secondary_object
_xfer_secondary_pool
xfer_secondary_pool
framegen_secondary_clear_channel_status
framegen_wait_for_secondary_syncup
framegen_secondary_is_syncup
framegen_secondary_requests_to_read_empty_fifo
set_secondary_fwnode
config_sub_second_increment
mci_seconds_show
cfg80211_secondary_chans_ok
root@imx8mqevk:/sys/kernel/debug/tracing# echo freeze_secondary_cpus > set_ftrace_filter
