You mean just use tracing_thresh during the tracing? We could perhaps
also change the code (and I think this would be beneficial even without
this change) to print the function on exit if it did not have a entry.

That is, in the reading of the trace, keep a depth pointer. For every
"entry" we hit, we add one, and for every "exit" we subtract one (per
cpu). If we go negative, we keep the counter at zero, but write
something like:


} (sys_write)
Because I always hate it when a trace starts with a bunch of "}" and I
have no idea what functions they are. This would fix that.
Yeah, Tim's trace would have only "} (sys_write)" type syntax but that's
probably fine.
