Hi Jason, yes that's a nice idea.

A recent patch on -tip tree moved the power tracing related headers to trace/power.h
So you will probably need to rebase your patch against latest -tip (not a lot of changes
are needed though).

It would be probably better to put your tracepoints registering on a dedicated
function to call it on both init and start.
Also it should be better to check the return value and warn on fail case.

Thanks!
