This feature has not been included in lttng 2. I think that this feature
is useful, and I tried last year to bring it back. It was close to be
merged as a separate proc file, but someone pointed that it would be
better to profile the file with debugfs. I haven't work on it since
then. I may give it another spin later, but I can't right now.
