Mmh, you can solve problems you do not even need to know about, just by
merging them into the kernel? Wait, will send you some more! :)

Tracing&profiling are important topics, but in the end just small pieces
of the virtualization problem space. If that was the strongest reason,
it would be like asking gdb guys to merge qemu because it contains a
gdbserver.

but many really entertaining answers. So why not repeat this on the next
merge window?
