And me too. But you don't need CONFIG_EVENT_TRACING for that.
TRACE_EVENT() with !CONFIG_EVENT_TRACING only produces tracepoints
if CONFIG_TRACEPOINTS.


In fact, a first progress that would handle these compromizes would
be to have CONFIG_PERF_EVENT_SW.

For now perf_event_task_sched_in and perf_event_task_sched_out can
stay as is because they are perf core utils.

But all the rest (faults, migrations, etc..) could be tracepoints builtin
only if CONFIG_PERF_EVENT_SW.
Which means CONFIG_PERF_EVENT_SW depends on CONFIG_TRACEPOINTS.

But nobody is forced to build CONFIG_PERF_EVENT_SW, breakpoints don't need
it.
