I wonder if we can have this called before the trace_event boot is
analyzed. Then have the kprobe_event work more like the kprobe_events
file, and not enable the kprobes but only create them. If you want to
enable them you do a trace_event=kprobes as well.

Perhaps we could enable kprobes at early init?

What do you think? Or is there something else in kprobes that prevents
such an early enabling of it?
