I agree. I was talking with Christoph Hellwig about doing something 
similar with TRACE_EVENT, since he needs to do special things when enabled 
and disabled (like enable other trace points).

But anyway, I totally NAK the name. What about something like 
DECLARE_TRACE_WITH_CALLBACK()

Yes, it is a bit more verbose, but it at least tells what it does. The 
first thing that came to my mind when I saw DECLARE_TRACE_REG, was that 
this trace point will pass in "regs" to do things like backtraces.
