I can't help but think this is a knee jerk reaction to the (from my limited perspective) excellent post on Adam Leventhal's blog. There are certain things about that entry not covered here, such as the seemingly blatant plagiarism present in the "Red Hat Summit 2007" slides.
Can anyone mention a single good reason DTrace can't be lifted as-is, name kept and everything, into the Linux kernel? The Sun people seem to be pushing for this while the Linux people seem intriguingly silent on the issue.
Personally after reading that post and the various things it links to, I'd say DTrace is the better and more rigorously designed system.
