    Completely insane I'd say. Debugfs is per defintion populated from
    kernelspace, and adding another mixed user/kernel populated fs like
    devfs is a rather bad idea. I don't quite see any point in shipping
    lttv with the kernel tree either, it shouldn't really need knowledge of
    the kernel version.
