Yeah, there was a known breakage in 3.10. The problem was that the
breakage was a fix to the splice code that would help trace-cmd.
Unfortunately, trace-cmd had a bug in it that would cause the fix to
break it.

I released a fix for all versions of trace-cmd that's currently
supported, and some that are not (all the way down to the 1.0 series).
I had the fix go out several months before 3.10 was released, and
notified all the major distros about it.

Thus, if you are using an older version, then yes, it will be broken
with the newer kernel. Just upgrade to a newer release (you can even
keep the same X.X version as they all have the fix).
