Ah sorry, got distracted by other work.

OK, I just tried it out, and here's my results:

I ran you code with my current kernel and this is what I got:

# ./ftrace-test-epoll-kafai 
           <...>-3183  [002] ...1    81.777891: tracing_mark_write:
some data 3183: waitting for more data......
3184: written more data

And it just hung there.

Then I applied your patch, compiled and booted it, and ran the test
again, and I got this:

# ./ftrace-test-epoll-kafai

It just hung there. No forward progress.

I don't think that was the result you intended.
