Existing TP has provision to dump skb and trace error strings with
error code but
we are trying to trace the entire mailbox flow of the AF/PF and VF
drivers. In particular
we trace the below:
    message allocation with message id and size at initiator.
    number of messages sent and total size.
    check message requester id, response id and response code after
reply is received.
    interrupts happened on behalf of mailboxes in the entire process
with source and receiver of interrupt along with isr status.
    error like initiator timeout waiting for response.
  All the above are relevant and are required for Octeontx2 only hence
used own tracepoints.
