Integrate support for LTTng

Registered by Steve Langasek on 2010-10-13

As of Maverick, Ubuntu has support for the userspace LTTng tools, but the kernel side is an out-of-tree patch. We need to determine if this patch is suitable for inclusion in the Linaro kernel tree, and either integrate it or provide it as a separate kernel tree for those wishing to use this feature.
