*Plan of the week:*
Last week packet.header part from both client-side and metadata was
completed. I will continue to work on adding packet.context etc.

I got the response from lltng about stream_instance_id.

I have made changes accordingly.

I have moved the generation of binary stream files directly to
./misc/record/ctf/. See above commit.


The packet.context is needed at the starting of the binary file(just after
packet.header). The packet.context has timestamp_end which can be obtained
after processing last record item but print_item() is already writing the
record_item in the binary file. The same case is with packet_size and
content_size. These two values can be obtained after processing the last
record item in the file but we need at the starting of a binary file.

We need packet.context just after packet.header in the binary file. So as
of now, I have just added cpu_id in packet.context on both client-side and

It has no warnings.

I have one approach for it. We can try the buffer approach for it. Just
write the file packet.header and packet.context in a new binary file and
append the old file content in a new file.
