Right, and when packaging, we can do just like Ingo and Thomas are doing
with 'perf trace', create a hardlink and if argv[0] is 'probe', that is
an alias to 'perf probe', so we would do it just like:

$ probe add <probe>
$ probe del <probe>
$ probe list
$ probe lines <line>
$ probe vars [--filter=<pattern>|-F <pattern>] [--extern] <probe>
$ probe funcs [--filter=<pattern>|-F <pattern>]

[root@felicio ~]# probe
bash: probe: command not found...

Also google told me that there was an /sbin/probe utility, but that was
a long time ago, in the kernel-pcmcia-cs package, nowadays we have
pcmciautils and it doesn't have this command, so I think it is up for
grabs :-)

So I think that the 'probe funcs' makes sense, will apply that patch in
perf/core.
