We are working on renaming the other data structures. As for the
"trace_" it is really "trace_seq_*" That's not going to get renamed. We
may move it to another header file. It matches the trace_seq_* code in
the kernel, and I would like to keep that the same.

Hmm, OK, I'll try to look into that later.

For this patch series, do you want to take the patch set, or just pull
from my branch?
