SystemTap on Mandriva

Support has been added for 2009.1 and later distros, in order to use it you have to prepare the kernel source as explained below.

urpmi kernel-debug kernel-source systemtap

cd /usr/src/linux
edit Makefile for correct EXTRAVERSION
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
make oldconfig
make prepare

Also note that modules are compressed in Mandriva, this means that you have to decompress the module if you are going to add probe points in it. With recent elfutils (0.138+), manual decompression is not necessary.
