[RFC] gelf - user space probe debugger

I started a debugger project.  It's based on the user space backport
of optimized kprobes (djprobes) and RSP stub implementation.

The debugger is implemented as a preloaded shared library,
which handles all the debugger work, hence no kernel ptrace
is needed.

It just reached the state where it can handle simple gdb session
of setting/reaching a breakpoint and continue the execution.

Details can be found on http://people.redhat.com/jolsa/gelf/

I'd like to ask for opinions if there'd be users for such thing,
and if it's worth to continue on this..

thanks for any ideas,

ps. I'm not subscribed to the list, so please include my email
