This part refers to when you define your own tracepoints in your pogram, 
using the TRACEPOINT_EVENT macro.

That part however, refers to using the liblttng-ust-cyg-profile library, 
to automatically instrument function entries and exits. This library 
implements the callbacks expected by cyg-profile, and puts the 
information into UST tracepoints. Since it's this 
liblttng-ust-cyg-profile library that "defines" the tracepoints here, 
they are stuck at the log level specified in their definition, which is 

Hope this helps,
