I'm shit at userspace too ;-)  I just like simple makefiles and other
non "autocrap" stuff.

Anyway, I did plan on getting a libtracecmd out someday (at a bottom of
a very long todo list), so I'm all game for this. I was hoping to get
libtraceevent out first. That's now homed in the kernel tools
directory and I've been porting stuff to and from trace-cmd for that as
well. But there's still a bit of work on that front.

I'll have to take a look at your patches and see how they are after I
get some other things out of the way first.
