That is true at a certain level, but almost all of the interesting
data that is gathered comes from providers other than fbt, and these
are implemented with static probes. Check out the dtt code.
In linux, the closest thing we have are markers, which are slowly
making their way through LKML for upstream inclusion. Systemtap
already interfaces to these effortlessly.
