Subject[PATCH, RFC 0/3] Improvements to the tracing documentation
At the kernel panel at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, I
mentioned that the documentation for the tracing subsystem could be
improved; in particular, that very often the needed documentation for
how the various tracers worked could only be found in the git commit
logs, Kconfig files, and of course, reading the source.

Since criticisms should be followed up with some attempts to improve
the situation, here are some patches to improve the tracing

I'm not sure the documentation is 100% correct, but by submitting it,
hopefully that the tracer authors will get flushed out of the woodwork
and be inspired to improve what has been submitted. :-)
