right, I can see more things that needs rename, like in print_arg*,
trace_* stuff and others

I'm also getting weird make error when compiling in libtraceevent dir:

  [ traceevent]$ make
    GEN      libtraceevent-dynamic-list
  Either missing one of [] or bad version of nm

but that seems to be there even without your patchset,
so probably something we should look into

other than that it looks ok to me

once this is done, we can move forward to put this
to kernel-tools-libs-devel rpm
