> Yeah, but even now you have people like Christoph Hellwig turning up on e.g. the glibc list when probe point adding patches were proposed, saying 'no, uprobes will never exist in this form'.

I thought I read about work to make SystemTap work with procfs. Any idea what is happening there (Frank?) Although something seems to be happening currently with uprobes, and Christoph Hellwig seemed to be actively (positively) involved in the discussion (see http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/7/27/121).

I'm not quite sure which effort you may be referring to.

Yes. It is unfortunate though that instructions of the form "Don't SYMBOL_EXPORT this facility [since you-know-who might use it]" are still the order of the day.

I can't seem to find any reference to it now. If you are not aware of it then I strongly assume I misunderstood something at some point.
