In my case, systemtap can find relay correctly.
It worked with linux-2.6.18-rc5 on i686 machine.(Distribution: Fedora Core5)
You can ensure whether your running kernel actually supports relay by using
$ grep relay_open /proc/kallsyms
If you can't find "relay_open" in /proc/kallsyms, your running kernel
doesn't support relay function.

Exactly, the relayfs code which systemtap includes seems out-of-date.
But, I think, that is the code for the old-linux kernel.
If your kernel actually supports relay, you can get more detail
logs by adding verbose options:
$ ./stptracer maskset/bioqueue.stp -vvv

OK, I will add the document next time. In this version, you can
find how to install in README document.
