[ltt-dev] [UST] Trace locking

Hi there,

I've been looking through the ust trace locking mechanism, 
ltt_lock_traces, and am wondering: is there any real point to it? Assuming 
only one single tracectl thread in the process the traces will only ever 
be accessed or changed by that single thread. There is therefore never a 
possibility of a lock contention, so why bother?

Mathieu, do you have any insight?
