    I know you are talking about the only necessary bits from utrace to
    have the syscalls tracing.
    But I can't answer you better than would the utrace people.

    And actually I'm not sure the utrace bits for syscall tracing can be
    isolated from the rest of its
    core.

    Anyway, I will let the utrace guy answer to it :-)
