You mean systrace_freebsd.ko.

I've renamed it for consistency with other systrace provider variants.
I can change it back.

I'm not sure that creating an umbrella 'systrace' module is worth it.
"kldload /boot/kernel/systrace*" should do that just fine. The reason
dtrace exists is that there are number of modules with dtrace
providers that are not easily distinguishable by their name.
