SubjectBPF runtime for systemtap
I'm pleased to be able to announce an initial implementation of an (e)bpf 
backend for systemtap. For the subset of systemtap probes that can use
kprobes, we can use a bpf filter instead of loading a kernel module.

As this implementation is young, there are a number of limitations. Neither
string nor stats types are supported. Both require enhancements to the set of
builtin functions supported in kernel. The stap bpf loader still needs
improvement with respect to its use of the event subsystem.

We're using the same intermediate file format that is supported by the llvm bpf
backend. I have some improvements to submit for the llvm bpf backend as well.

The code can be reviewed at

git:// rth/bpf
