SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/4] tracing/uprobes: Revert "Support mix of ftrace and perf"
* Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> [2014-06-27 19:01:36]:

> This reverts commit 43fe98913c9f67e3b523615ee3316f9520a623e0.

> This patch is very wrong. Firstly, this change leads to unbalanced

> # echo 1 >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/probe_libc/enable
> # perf record -e probe_libc:syscall whatever

> can't know this, and it looks as if nobody hits this probe.
