I wonder why the "static" has been embedded within
"DEFINE_STATIC_HASHTABLE" ? I'm used to see something similar to:

static DEFINE_HASHTABLE(tracepoint_table, TRACEPOINT_HASH_BITS);

elsewhere in the kernel (e.g. static DEFINE_PER_CPU(), static
DEFINE_MUTEX(), etc).

Typically, where there are 2 or more nesting levels, I try to keep the
outer brackets, even if the 1st level only contain a single statement
(this is what I did across tracepoint.c). This is especially useful when
nesting multiple if levels, and ensures the "else" clause match the
right if. We might want to keep it that way within the file, to ensure
style consistency.

Other than that, it looks good!

Thanks!
