SubjectRE: [PATCH 00/12 v2] ring-buffer/tracing: Remove disabling of ring buffer while reading trace file

I was trying to use schedviz (on github from google).
It reads out the raw trace (for some scheduler events)
and then postprocesses it to generate to nice pictures.
However the shell script it uses for the captures has to run the
copies in the background, sleep a random time, and then kill all
the copies having hoped it has waited long enough - truly horrid.

There is also some confusion (IIRC between a header and your library
code) about the 'time-delta' on 'pad' entries.
