Suppose there's two events attached to the same tracepoint. Will you
write the tracepoint twice and risk different data in each, or will you
do it once and copy it into each buffer?

Yeah, I utterly hate that, I opted to let anything with a filter take
the slow path. Not only would I have to add a discard, but I'd have to
decrement the counter as well, which is a big no-no.
