"Past discussions have included suggestions for ways to mark tracepoints which are intended to be stable, but no conclusions have resulted. So the situation remains murky. It may well be that things will stay that way until some future kernel change breaks somebody's tools. Then the kernel community will be forced to choose between restoring compatibility for the broken tracepoints or overtly changing its longstanding promise not to break the user-space ABI (too often). It might be better to figure things out before they get to that point."
This reminds me of global inaction in the face of climate change. Am I obsessed?
