For the record, systemtap includes a backend that uses dyninst as a
pure userspace backend.


% cat foo.c
#include <stdio.h>

int foo() {
  printf("foo\n");
  return 1;
}

int main() {
  foo();
}

% gcc -g foo.c

% stap --runtime=dyninst -e '
   probe process.function("*").{call,return} { println(pp()) }
' -c a.out

foo
process("/home/fche/a.out").function("main@/home/fche/foo.c:8").call
process("/home/fche/a.out").function("foo@/home/fche/foo.c:3").call
process("/home/fche/a.out").function("foo@/home/fche/foo.c:3").return
process("/home/fche/a.out").function("main@/home/fche/foo.c:8").return
