What about having KVM define the stable tracepoints in the built-in
part of the kernel, if CONFIG_KVM is Y or M, and then export the
tracepoints, such that the tracepoints can be called from a module?

That way the tracepoints aren't being *defined* in a module, they are
just being *called* from the module. Does that seem like a reasonable
compromise?
