As I've said many times in the past, I've never rejected a patch
because the patch description was too verbose, but I have rejected
patches where the description hasn't provided enough useful

I would really like to see the commit description show an example
where you setup/load/etc. the event into the kernel, trigger and
capture the event information, and then show how the event output can
be parsed/processed into something meaningful by a user.  I'm
essentially looking for a "hello world" version of the SELinux
tracepoint, does that make sense?
