nice, it looks ok to me.. I guess the only concern is the filter for
ftrace:function event, which uses the pred parsing code just to get
the 'ip == ...' pairs and feeds it to ftrace_ops filter api
I'll check and make some tests
I think tracepoint events filters should be working without any special
care because they use the same api as ftrace filters
