We had that discussion already. If you only pass it after the stat()
then you cannot use DTrace, except when you already get a message in the
log and therefore don't need DTrace. DTrace can get the filesize if it
likes, but thats up to the script author.

err... why are we removing it? The patch should have included an
addition to the probes.d file also, but that should be fixed, not
removed. Don't we normally reject incomplete patches?

You can't say we don't have many probes so we won't add one. There never
will be many if we do that - its a circular argument.
