I'm OK with either that, or with Arjan's suggestion of "Correct" and
"Incorrect" --- although that would changing a line in the definition
of #define unlikely(x):

ftrace_likely_update(&______f, !______r);
Either "True" / "False" or "Correct" / "Incorrect" has the advantage
of being unambiguous. "Correct" / "Incorrect" has the advantage that
people don't have to think about the fact that for
/proc/profile_unlikely, high numbers of "False" is a good thing, where
as for /proc/profile_likely, high numbers of "True" is a good thing.
With "Correct" / "Incorrect" it's easier to undersatnd that high
numbers of "Correct" is good.

So I can see why Arjan suggested Correct/Incorrect, although I can
live with either.
