SubjectRe: [Patch] Tracing/ftrace: Adds a marker to allow user comments

Perhaps it should be more discussed because it is an unsual case...

Ok so just a question before I start a new patch to correct the marker's file.

What is the best way to implement tracers's printk handlers?
Do you think that these functions must be implemented in trace.c or is
it more relevant to dispatch the message to
a function provided by the current tracer in its struct tracer
operations? If such handler is not implemented, we just defaults the
formatting like ftrace_printk does.

Thanks...
