I also will follow the suggestion as Rob mentioned in another email:
"The deadbeefdeadbeef addresses are a bit ugly - these are just dummy
values emitted in the decoder layer - maybe these should be changed
to 0."

Sure! I will respin the v3 patch series by following up Rob's
suggestion and add Rob's review tag.

BTW, I'd like to get ack from Mathieu as well. Mathieu is working on
CPU wide tracing, so I talked with Mathieu he will review the patch
series if has conflict with CPU wide tracing.
