Built-in predefined trace points are a great tradeoff for a system
whose pace of development is as glacial as Solaris's is.
This same tradeoff simply does not traslate to the pace at which the
linux kernel core innards are changing. Any predefined trace points
are going to have their placement and semantics change on a week to week
if not a day to day basis. It wouldn't help users at all.
