Currently that driver does not allow kernel tracing.  Last time I tried it
with that restriction removed, it would lose data on larger workloads.
Generally, any loss of data ruins the call graph.

For me it does not make sense to try to support it, since I am primarily
trying to pave the way for the Intel PT driver.
