    Actually, we can make the raw tracepoint callback no longer 'notrace',
    and then we can extend all tracepoints as well with this.

    One issue I hit was the structure randomization for security. If the
    structures are randomized, it becomes much more difficult to find
    specific aspects of task_struct.
