Subject[patch 14/15] LTTng instrumentation - ipv4
Keep track of interface up/down for ipv4. Allows to keep track of interface
address changes in a trace.

Those tracepoints are used by LTTng.

About the performance impact of tracepoints (which is comparable to markers),
even without immediate values optimizations, tests done by Hideo Aoki on ia64
show no regression. His test case was using hackbench on a kernel where
scheduler instrumentation (about 5 events in code scheduler code) was added.
See the "Tracepoints" patch header for performance result detail.
