From: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com>

Add a 'trace(synthetic_event_name, params)' alternative to
synthetic_event_name(params).

Currently, the syntax used for generating synthetic events is to
invoke synthetic_event_name(params) i.e. use the synthetic event name
as a function call.

Users requested a new form that more explicitly shows that the
synthetic event is in effect being traced.  In this version, a new
'trace()' keyword is used, and the synthetic event name is passed in
as the first argument.

+    There are two equivalent forms available for generating synthetic
