Hi steven,

I have reworked this patchset again with minor change.
[v2 -> v3:
- change trace_descripte_t defintion in patch 3
- new patch "export ftrace_events"
- remove patch "export syscall metadata"
(syscall tracing are use same event_trace_ops backend as normal event tracepoint,
so there's no need to export anything of syscall)
- remove private data field in ftrace_event_file struct (also not needed)

This patchset contain:
1) event tracing expose work (v3)
new implementation is based on multi-instances buffer work,
it also integrate syscall tracing code to use same event backend store mechanism.
The change include patch 1-6(patch 2 also fix a long-term minor bug)

2) some cleanup
This include patch 7-11.

3) patch 12 fix libtraceevent warning

Note that these patches is based on latest linux-trace git tree:
(on top of multi-instances buffer implementation)


All patches pass basic testing.

Note that ktap code already make use of this event tracing export work,
If you are interesting, you can check ktap code in below link to see
how this export work is implemented by external modules.

And even more, you can try it. :)

Thanks very much
