Subject: Re: [PATCH] Identify which executable object the userspace address
	belongs to. Store thread group leader id, and use it to lookup the
	address in the process's map. We could have looked up the address
	on thread's map, but the thread might not exist by the time we are
	called. The process might not exist either, but if you are reading
	trace_pipe, that is unlikely.

Cc:-ed Andy - it would be a useful feature indeed. (since there's no 
hard CodingStyle rule for it, it could be a default-off helper)
