SubjectRe: [RFC patch 01/41] LTTng - core header

Also note, it is better to push the core changes needed first. This way if
something comes up, you can make your changes to your code before it gets
into the kernel. This has been the approach I try to use. I send out patch
series that modify the core kernel first, see what the feed back is, get
them accepted, before continuing with further patches.

Thanks,
