For the benefit of people who create tracepoints, what restrictions
does trace have with respect to event types, and is this anticipated

What about the filtering and other general features/functionality of
ftrace? Is the anticipation that this will be ported over to perf?
What about things like blktrace?
Not that I expect all of this will be working with this initial
release, but I'm curious about the long-term roadmap of this
interface. (Obviously subject to change as we learn more, etc. But
I'd love to hear what your current thoughts and plans are.)
P.S. What about sysrq-z? Is that going to stay with ftrace side of
the tracing architecture?
