prior to v6.x, did linux-libre treat anything under the
tools/lib/traceevent directory? - it is no longer present in
linux-libre 6.x - linux seems to have moved it to another repo,
with it's own versioning (currently 1.7.2)

it is fairly important now though, required transitively by
programs such as QEMU (i had to remove QEMU, all of GNOME, and
KDE to be rid of it) - do we know already if it is libre? - it
seems to have a sibling named 'tracefs', which is in the same
dependency chain - i dont think linux-libre ever handled that one
