The last link details a key requirement...

  A key requirement of the trace process in RTEMS is to take
  existing code in a compiled format (ELF) and instrument it
  without rebuilding that code from source and without annotating
  that source with trace code. The code being trace may be from a
  3rd party or already certified or in the process of being
  certified and the trace testing is part of that process.

We have avoided building specialised kernel images to trace. This comes from
users like ESA.
