That is just a location that Ingo places changes that are ready to go to
linux-next. Not where development is.

Ingo usually pulls ftrace related patches into the tracing/ftrace
branch. That is for core ftrace. Since ftrace has a bunch of pluggins,
they may have their own branches.

But to answer Paul's question, I would suggest tracing/ftrace for
seeing latest core ftrace changes.

Should we add another topic in MAINTAINERS? The "TRACE RING BUFFER"? or
just call it ring_buffer? This is separate from ftrace, although ftrace
uses it for on the fly tracing. I maintain it and it is located in the tip
git repo under tracing/ring-buffer.
