Maybe.

Though that IPI tracing is inconsistent across architectures. I'm not
really interested to have yet another x86 variant which is slightly
different than anything else.

ARM and ARM64 share generic tracepoints for that, though the actual
tracepoint invocation is in the architecture specific code.

If at all we really want to have the common IPIs which are required for
SMP support covered by generic tracepoints and have them in the generic
code and not sprinkled all over arch/*

Thanks,

tglx
