Can you add this to the change log of the patch. As that would be what
goes into git history. Because honestly, I had no idea what you meant
by "ftrace operations". If I don't understand that term, how can you
expect anyone else to?

Those tests are no where near what I have. Does this code work on the
beagle bone white? If so, I can probably run my full suite on it.
