Yeah, I knew when I wrote this that new modules loaded during tracing
would just be initialized as nops, and not become part of that trace.
They will become part of later traces if the function tracing is stopped
and started again.

Actually, I took that as a safety feature, since most bad things can
happen when modules load and unload. But, I think your patch is still
safe. I'll apply it, play with it a bit, then queue it up for 2.6.33.

Thanks,
