    Yes, definitely. I'll add a quick ummunotify module parameter that
    limits the number of registrations per process.

    OK. It would be nice to tie into something more general, but I think I
    agree -- perf counters are missing the filtering and the "no lost
    events" that ummunotify does have. And I'm not sure it's worth messing
    up the perf counters design just to jam one more not totally related
    thing in.

    - R.
