Hmm, I'm wondering if I should just make an ftrace section, and black
list the entire thing. Also that section could be used to not allow
ftrace to use it either. I've been wanting to start letting ftrace
trace the tracing code, and perf for that matter. It would be nice to
be able to debug things like that.

I would like to also make sections that can be enabled or disabled in
groups. To group things like the tracing facility and perf and have
them by default not be traced, but then set a flag that says "sure go
ahead and trace them". This shouldn't be too hard to do.

Hmm, I'll add this as another topic to have for the Linux Plumbers
tracing track, as well as the kernel tracing topic.
