Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2009-04-28 10:15:51 EDT
Instruction tracing logic was added to upstream systemtap
in time for the RHEL5-bound 0.9.7 release, but needs an
backported patch to with with the older utrace found here.

This patch should be safe & simple to backport.

This satisfies the code-type prerequisites for bug #463333,
which relates to additional user-space packages that use
this feature.  (It is also accessible to systemtap users
without this extra tool.)
