For the record, I think this patch is a waste of manpower and we should
rely on dtrace/systemtap.  However, if we are going to make our own
homegrown substitute for those facilities, a minimum requirement should
be that it uses the dtrace macros already put into the sources, rather
than expecting that it gets to clutter the code some more with its own
set of tracing markers.
