I am doubt why you conclude "always start tracing at the beginning of
the buffer"? I read the driver but cannot find any code in the driver
to reset rrp and rwp after fetching the trace data, or there have any
implict operation to reset pointers?

Just want to double check for this, in case I miss anything. Thanks
for the review.
