Some further notes:

Firstly there seems to be an issue with formatting when blktrace and one
or more of the events tracers are used in combination. There are patches
being proposed at the moment to solve this issue, so it shouldn't be too
long before that is fixed.

Also there are patches in the works to merge the two tracing headers
into one. That means that this patch will have to change too. It might
be easier for me to submit this via the tracing tree, rather than the
gfs2 tree bearing in mind the number of changes going on in the tracing
tree right now.

Steve.
