Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2009-03-07 10:05:20 EST
Description of problem:

systemtap's new direct kernel tracepoint support requires access to the
trace/*.h header files within the kernel-devel package.  A .spec patch
is going into fedora very soon; the same thing just needs to be put into

This should moot bug #465543 by making the marker-conversion module unnecessary.

This should be a zero-risk change, since we're only asking to package a
few preexisting header files within the kernel-devel rpm.  No source code
changes are contemplated.

I confirmed that systemtap sees all tracepoints OOTB in kernel-2.6.18-139.el5 on i686 and x86_64.  Thanks!
