I'm glad mainline fixed your issue though as you said in the other thread ;-)
I will refer to your email here later when doing backports if I hit the issue.

Yes, I agree. One can also use the series to build custom kernel modules
which can also contain tracepoints in their own right. Glad you also find it
useful. I will CC you on it for next spin.
