    Subject[PATCH 3/3] tracing: rename EVENT_TRACER config to ENABLE_EVENT_TRACING
    From: Steven Rostedt <>

    Currently we have two configs: EVENT_TRACING and EVENT_TRACER.
    All tracers enable EVENT_TRACING. The EVENT_TRACER is only a
    convenience to enable the EVENT_TRACING when no other tracers
    are enabled.

    The names EVENT_TRACER and EVENT_TRACING are too similar and confusing.
    This patch renames EVENT_TRACER to ENABLE_EVENT_TRACING to be more
    appropriate to what it actually does, as well as add a comment in
    the help menu to explain the option's purpose.
