The problem is that the cmdline recording is very tight to the sched
switch tracer. tracing_start_cmdline_record() registers the sched switch
tracer tracepoints and use them to avoid any loss of pid to cmdline
mapping.

BTW, I have a doubt about this system.
Isn't tracing_record_cmdline() sufficient for that?

We only need to record the cmdline of the traced task, not all
of them.

No?
