Thanks Masami,

I'll be incorporating these patches into my own set, and see how they
fit. I would have had more done yesterday, but I'm also testing against
PPC and discovered a bug in the PPC function tracing and was side
tracked in fixing it (ended up being a new function that had to be
tagged with 'notrace').

Right, I working on adding the ops and regs parameters for all users,
and working on making sure this work for other archs. I'll be testing
against i386, x86_64, PPC64, PPC32, and ARM (snowball board, and this is
the perfect excuse for me to get my panda board running too :-)

Thanks!
