SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 1/3] tracing: Change STR_VAR_MAX_LEN
I still get the same WARN_ON behavior when trying to use bpftrace.
But, I spent some time today reading through that call path, and at
this point I'm convinced that it's the version of bpftrace I'm using
which is slightly broken, not the kernel in this case. (To be fair,
I'm trying to use some unreleased tip-of-tree version of it, with some
not-yet-merged patches, and some extra hacks on top of all that, so
it's not particularly surprising...)

In my experiments with just the synthetic event + histogram triggers,
this patchset works as expected for my use case.

So (for the whole series, not just this one patch):
