Ping. Attached is a rebase of the same patch to current kernel master
(without spec bump to make merging easier). As explained on irc I did
test this on various arches and against a full make installcheck run of
systemtap to make sure things work as expected. If there is anything
else I can do to get this patch in please let me know.
