I'd like to suggest renaming the lttng_ust_statedump:soinfo event.
Indeed, the current name feels somewhat misleading given that it
applies not only to loaded shared objects,  but also to executables,
whether they are position-independent executables (PIE) or not.

I would propose changing the name to "bin_info", as I feel this would
encompass both executables and shared objects. The event's field
"sopath" should also be renamed to simply "path" for the same

I think it's important to keep to a minimum such name changes, but now
seems like a reasonable time to do it before it becomes widely used
for analyses in babeltrace and Trace Compass.


Best regards,
Antoine Busque.
