For new features like this, I think you need to convince the Global
Maintainers as a group that there is a good reason for waiting.
Reasons could be:
- It's only going to be a few more days at most
- Some other features would not be usable without it
- It's a killer feature
It *is* a killer feature! :-) And I swear there is no conflict of
interest whatsoever in me saying that. :-)
Actually it does fix a major longstanding bug in tracepoint support,
which is that tracepoints in shared library code don't work unless the
library has been loaded already. Marc Khouzam has bumped into this one
I believe, dunno if there's a bugzilla entry for it.
