Have you thought of adding multiple trace events with if statements
around them to decode each specific type of event?

Note, you can have a generic event that gets enabled by all the other
events via the "reg" and "unreg" part of TRACE_EVENT_FN(). Say its
called trace_avc, make a dummy trace_avc() call hat doesn't even need
to be called anywhere, it just needs to exist to get to the other trace

Then have:

if (trace_avc_enabled()) {
if (event1)
if (event2)

The reason for the trace_avc_enabled() is because that's a static
branch, which is a nop when not enabled. When enabled, it is a jump to
the out of band if condition block that has all the other trace events.
