Btw, it's not just the commit history. The actual file layout is
terminally horrible too. The actual LWN article made it look like ktap
was just a user-space tool, and I was thinking that it was like
tools/pert/, just in staging.

But looking at the tree, it looks like parts of it is a kernel module,
and parts of it is the user space thing, and it's totally impossible
to see which is which, it's just all mixed up in the same directory

Maybe I misunderstood, but that was my reaction from a very quick look.
