NACK, don't put code into Documentation/. Put it into kernel as it's
actually useful kernel code.

Are you suggesting moving the example code into kernel? Or complaining about example code in /Documentation?

And add clone,exec and exit while you're at it.

Hu? A syscall tracer sounds like a nice idea but that is not what I am trying to accomplish. I will let Systemtap handle that.
