Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 10/29] ktap: add string handling
 code(kernel/trace/ktap/kp_[str|mempool].[c|h])


It's not clear to me why a kernel script language needs
all that complicated string interning code.

What kind of scripts would create as many strings that
it would be worth it?

I think it would be better to replace it with a really
simple non interning dynamic string type.
