You can use __string_len() to determine the string length in the tracepoint
(which is executed in the TP_fast_assign() section).

My clean up patches will make __assign_str_len() obsolete too (I'm working
on them now), and you can just use __assign_str().

I noticed that I don't have a string_len example in the sample code and I'm
actually writing it now.

// cutting out everything else:


	TP_PROTO(const char *foo, int bar),

	TP_ARGS(foo, bar),

		__string_len(	lstr,	foo,	bar < strlen(foo) ? bar : strlen(foo) )

		__assign_str(lstr, foo);

// Note, the above is with my updates, without them, you need to duplicate the logic

//		__assign_str_len(lstr, foo, bar < strlen(foo) ? bar : strlen(foo));

	TP_printk("%s", __get_str(lstr))

The above will allocate "bar < strlen(foo) ? bar : strlen(foo)" size on the
ring buffer. As the size is already stored, my clean up code uses that
instead of requiring duplicating the logic again.
