Re: [PATCH V4 5/9] New probe type: DTrace USDT probes.

OK - I will send an updated patch that makes things a little cleaner.
I didn't know whether it was OK to default to type long makes much
sense when the probe says the parameter should be using type "mutex_t".

Thanks for the offer to help! Sadly, the SEGV doesn't seem to
happen on sparc-solaris, it seems. Once I apply the patch above,
I pretty much get normal results back (yay!).

So, the problem appears to be specific to x86-solaris. I didn't know
the DOF program was embedded in the executable, but I suspect there is
a problem in its contents. How do you think we should proceed?
