RTEMS User Level Tracing?

Hi All,

We're interested in trace some application data in our RTEMS project. 
Here's a bunch of background and thoughts:

I've read the following pages:
	* https://devel.rtems.org/wiki/Developer/Tracing
	* https://devel.rtems.org/wiki/Developer/Tracing/Trace_Linker

I think I have an understanding of the current system as documented. 
Tracing user defined data types seems to be missing. I'm looking for 
something more like barectf. Is there any such support available, or any 
plans to support it? I don't want to reinvent the wheel.

If there isn't support already, maybe some parts of the trace 
infrastructure can be reused, notably the backed for storing the data, 
and/or sending it out over the network. Are there plans to make the 
Trace Linker natively output CTF data? Perhaps barectf could be used for 
this purpose.
