Hmm it seems trace-cmd doesn't work that well, at least on current
x86_64 kernel where I noticed it:

trace-cmd-22020 [003] 105219.542610: mm_page_alloc: [FAILED TO PARSE] pfn=0x165cb4 order=0 gfp_flags=29491274 migratetype=1

I'm quite sure it's due to the "page=%p" part, which uses pfn_to_page().
The events/kmem/mm_page_alloc/format file contains this for page:

REC->pfn != -1UL ? (((struct page *)vmemmap_base) + (REC->pfn)) : ((void *)0)

I think userspace can't know vmmemap_base nor the implied sizeof(struct
page) for pointer arithmetic?

On older 4.4-based kernel:

REC->pfn != -1UL ? (((struct page *)(0xffffea0000000000UL)) + (REC->pfn)) : ((void *)0)

This also fails to parse, so it must be the struct page part?

I think the problem is, even if ve solve this with some more
preprocessor trickery to make the format file contain only constant
numbers, pfn_to_page() on e.g. sparse memory model without vmmemap is
more complicated than simple arithmetic, and can't be exported in the
format file.

I'm afraid that to support userspace parsing of the trace data, we will
have to store both struct page and pfn... or perhaps give up on reporting
the struct page pointer completely. Thoughts?
