That misses the entire point. If you have dynamic tracepoints you don't
have any static tracepoints to maintain because you don't need them.
They may be a clock or three slower but you are then going to branch
into the trace tool code paths, take tlb misses, take cache misses, and
eventually get back, so the cost of it being dynamic is so close to zero
in the biger picture it doesn't matter.
