* [PATCH] libtracefs: Implement tracefs_kretprobe_raw()

  To: linux-trace-devel

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

Add an interface that is similar to tracefs_kprobe_raw() but creates a
"kretprobe". The difference between a kprobe and a kretprobe is that a
kretprobe comes at the end of a function.

See Documentation/trace/kprobetrace.rst in the Linux kernel source code
for more information. Note, kprobes are started with "p" and kretprobe
lines start with an "r".
