Hi Ingo,

Currently the uvtrace function is a separate module built out of
tree. It's pretty much prototype right now so not quite ready
for general use. It's used mostly to debug problems that are
timing and/or load sensitive as it's a very low overhead trace
module that includes high resolution timing.

Should I do this differently, perhaps with a register function?

Thanks,
Mike
