Thanks, I may look at these in the future to update my tests. I've
attached some trigger tests that I just wrote up.

ftrace-event-traceon-off : tests the traceon and traceoff triggers.
- enables tracing, sets traceoff trigger, checks if it disables
- disables tracing, sets traceon trigger, checks if it enables
- does a countdown from 3 to make sure the tracing is disabled
3 times.

ftrace-event-stacktrace : tests the event stack trace. It
- checks enabling of events (non trigger)
- checks enabling only the stack trace
- checks enabling both the stack trace and events
- checks if the count works from 1 2 or 3 times

ftrace-event-trigger-event : tests enable/disable_event trigger
- checks if the event enables another event (several times)
- checks if the event disables another event (several times)
- checks if it enables an event count times "1 2 3"
- then it tests the filter part of the event trigger (enable only)

Feel free to add onto these.
