Nothing against the patch, but the subject is a bit misleading. I was 
expecting to see removals of "64" or some other "magic" numbers.

But 1000000 and 1000000000 are not magic numbers. They are known 
constants that represent usecs per second and nsecs per second.

I know this is just a nit, but the subject should have been

 tracing: replace number constants with meaningful names

But for the patch itself...
