Harsh Prateek Bora - Jan. 9, 2012, 3:46 p.m.
Note: Upstream Qemu have build issues with LTTng ust backend, as the trace
event APIs are not yet stable in ust and therefore ust backend is not
supported in this script as of now. Once the ust API stablises, this script
can be updated for ust backend also.

This will break the build. You need to squash 2/4 into this one.

What does "ust backend is not supported" mean? Did you leave it out
completely, or did not test it, or tested it and it's not working?

Yes, 2/4 will be squashed with it.

Please see discussion on 0/4 patch thread. Existing tracetool needs a 
fix for ust, and I was not sure about the fix, therefore not converted yet.
