SubjectRe: [PATCH 5/5] tracing: Add 'hash' event trigger command

I read through the whole thing. I think I got it somewhere near the end,
but it was quite difficult. What really confuses me is your
use of the "hash" term. I believe the established term for these
kind of data operations is "histogram". How about calling it that.

Overall it seems useful, but it's not fully clear to me why it needs
to be done in the kernel and not an analysis tool?
