That's true - as long as you don't have to add/remove/modify
tracepoints. I had to do this job in the past (not for KVM). Having 1
spot in 1 file (based on generic probes) would be handier in that case
than 5 spots in 3 files. But if the KVM tracepoints are considered
stable in their number and structure, that shouldn't be an issue here.

Tracepoints aren't stable; they are artefacts of the implementation.

I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
