Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] Enable new kprobe event at boot

This v2 series adds a kernel parameter, 'kprobe_event=' to add and enable
new kprobe events at boot time.

In this version, I changed to use postcore_initcall() instead of
subsys_initcall() for kprobes initialization.

Currently ftrace can enable some existing trace events at boot time.
This also allows admin/developer to add new kprobe-events at boot
time to debug device drivers etc.

The syntax is similar to tracing/kprobe_events interface, but
uses ',' and ';' instead of ' ' and '\n' respectively. e.g.


will add probes on func1 with the 1st and the 2nd arguments and on
func2 with the 1st argument.

Note that 'trace_event=' option enables trace event at very early
timing, but the events added by 'kprobe_event=' are enabled right
before enabling device drivers at this point. It is enough for
tracing device driver initialization etc.

Thank you,
