That's what I'm using, but my function_duration tracer didn't
work, because of an issue initializing the trace-option files.
The problem was that the debugfs wasn't initialized yet.
I worked up a simple fix to defer initializing the
trace-option files in debugfs until later in the boot

Maybe you've already fixed this. I'll check out the
latest code and see if I still have problems with it.
If so, I'll send the patches (which are quite small)
for consideration.
