Yes, in net-next. There are 6 tracepoints under tcp group:

  tcp_destroy_sock  
  tcp_receive_reset  
  tcp_retransmit_skb  
  tcp_retransmit_synack  
  tcp_send_reset  
  tcp_set_state

They are all added recently.

tcp_set_state uses __print_symbolic to show state in text format. I found
trace-cmd cannot parse that part:

[011] 147338.660560: tcp_set_state:        sport=16262 dport=48346 \
    saddr=127.0.0.6 daddr=127.0.0.6 saddrv6=2401:db00:30:317e:face:0:1f:0 \
    daddrv6=2401:db00:30:31e5:face:0:7f:0 oldstate= newstate=

Other parts of the output looks good to me.

Thanks,
Song
