Has there been consensus on this approach?

It definitely wont be in 3.17 (too late). I'm fine with getting this
ready unless there's other objections.

3.17 does contain the updates to trace_seq that Andrew made. Linus had
issues with the "trace" name, which this patch set creates a new
"seq_buf" that is a subset of the trace_seq.

I'll keep this on my todo list for 3.18 and push out patches to get
people's comments about it after 3.17 merge window has closed (the
required people are a bit busy at the moment).
