Not as much as one might think. Systemtap relies only on existing
externalized kernel interfaces and hooks - no changes just on our
account. That's not to say it wouldn't be nice to get some extra
interfaces/hooks, or to offload some version drift maintenance to other
folks. It means that we can work toward their development and upstream
inclusion gradually, without blocking the rest of the work.
