Ideally, you don't want to include trace/events/*.h headers in other
headers, as they can have side effects if those headers are included in
other trace/events/*.h headers.

But that said, I didn't make up the trace_state_name(), it was already
there in net-next before this patch.

But yeah, in actuality, I would have just done:

#define EM(a) { a, #a },
#define EMe(a) { a, #a }

directly. Which we can still do.
