A colleague did a quick/ad-hoc test of the recent ARM port of Systemtap
and a single Systemtap syscall probe seems to have about as much
performance hit for the system as the whole LTT(ng) thing. Does this
result sound right (LTT uses static probe points whereas Systemtap uses
dynamic kprobe + has its own overhead on top of that)?
