GRP : Group name. If omitted, use "kprobes" for it.
EVENT : Event name. If omitted, the event name is generated
- based on SYMBOL+offs or MEMADDR.
- SYMBOL[+offs] : Symbol+offset where the probe is inserted.
+ based on SYM+offs or MEMADDR.
+ MOD : Module name which has given SYM.
+ SYM[+offs] : Symbol+offset where the probe is inserted.
MEMADDR : Address where the probe is inserted.
