Actually, I thought I had mentioned that KTR_CRITICAL should stay as it is 
(well, and the larger thought about doing away with the entire bitmask 
concept which no one responded to).  critical_enter/exit are not related in 
the least to KTR_CONTENTION which is used for MUTEX_PROFILING, nor do they 
have anything at all to do with contention of any sort.  If you must stick 
them somewhere, put them in KTR_SCHED instead.  I think scottl@ recently 
added support to schedgraph for those traces anyway (though I'm not sure if 
they are in his local tree or CVS).

The hardclock trace can probably just be axed entirely as it isn't all that
