SubjectRe: [PATCH] tracing: Export key trace event symbols
Hi Christoph,

My module, and information about it, can be found at:
https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/trace
https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/trace/repository/show/src_module
with the header at
https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/trace/repository/raw/include/trace.h

It seems that you are the person that I have to convince in order to get
my patch accepted. Is this true?

Can you tell me how:
./kernel/trace/power-traces.c:17:EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL_GPL(power_start);
./kernel/trace/power-traces.c:19:EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL_GPL(cpu_idle);
should be allowed (how it fits with your definition of the Linux kernel below) and
my proposed EXPORTS not?
I hope that you will not suggest removing the above 2 exports.

Thanks,
Ron
