There is no way to know from the application while the trace is being
captured. I wonder what form such a mechanism would take to,
basically, query the tracer/ring buffer for the events_discarded
counter... This would arguably be of little use in per-uid mode (since
a user's apps share the same buffer), but I could see this being
useful in per-pid mode.
Any ideas?
