Right. And if you do some changes in the original patch, you can just
change the description, or add a simple line before your Signed-off-by, that
says:

[ factorize softirq events with DECLARE_EVENT_CLASS ]

Because indeed, as Steve said, the softirq_raise tracepoint should
belong to the softirq event class as it perfectly matches it. This
helps the kernel
saving some space.

Thanks.
