NPTL Tracing Proposal to support debugging and analysis

NPTL is excellent new technology for high-performance threads on Linux.
There is also the opportunity for NPTL to enable support for
best-in-class debugging and analysis as well.  Below is my proposal for
an extended tracing facility for NPTL to enable the creation of tools
that analyze the asynchronous behavior characteristics of threaded
applications.  This framework provides the data collection hooks to
enable a wide variety of tools ranging from simple logging, to
profiling, to comprehensive analysis and debugging.
