I think that samples are perfectly fine for documentation and
that the trace example is a good example. I think that most people
who need something like that would need to customize it for their
specific needs anyway.

We don't seem to be making progress...
Time to bring in a Tie-Breaker :)
Yes. Is anyone else interested? :(

I guess that's everyone (except those who are sleeping).

Let's not hold up progress. Just use samples/ for code.
Would you already have the


core code handy per chance ? (and probably Kconfig sourcing in every
arch ?)
Yes. Here it is. I'm working on add kprobes to it, but you
can go ahead with markers also.

Hi Randy,

I got everything working and I'm thinking about posting all this stuff
soon. Do you think your patch (having renamed Kbuild to Makefile) is
ready to post ?

Yes, AFAIK it is. Do you want me to resend it or do you want to
make it patch M/N in your patches?
