Looks good. Thanks.

Andrew, Mathieu is making changes to patch 3/5 referenced above.
When that is done, do you need a resend of all of these samples/
patches or do you have them straight?

Basically we have:
a. add samples/ infrastructure (new coming from Mathieu)
b. add markers to samples/ (Mathieu)
Mine is correct as is. (with the new samples infrastructure)

Right, your 2 can be the base (basis) for samples/, then the other
follow-ups can be applied.

c. add trace/ to samples/ (this patch from David)

I need to re-test the trace-sample patch against Mathieu's new infrastructure patch. I also need to re-post the trace patch with the sample removed. I will re-post both later today.

d. add kprobes/ to samples (move some from Documentation)
