I was responding to the original article's claim that "SystemTap, instead, does not depend on static probe points within the kernel". That claim implies that DTrace depends on static probe points in the kernel. I was only trying to point out that DTrace provides both dynamic and static trace points (since, as Bryan points out, both are needed).
