Hi Jolsa,

I'll take a look at these. I know there's duplicate code that I even
wrote a "generic" handler for others to use, that basically got a NAK
from Andrew Morton. I probably could have put it into the ftrace code
directly, but never did so.

It will be interesting to look at your patches, especially when those
functions all do things quite differently, with the exception of
set_ftrace_filter and set_ftrace_notrace.

Note, all your patches have [PATCH 0/3] in the subject. I think I can
figure out the order, but you will want to fix that on your next

Currently I'm bug fixing other areas that need a bit of attention. I'll
add this to my queue.
