DTrace on Linux

I wonder if it ever will be included in main Linux distros - would be very nice.
On the other hand is SystemTap bound to fail? It's been years now and still no real progress...

Userspace tracing, reusing of DTrace probes...

dtrace for linux is also available - no kernel patches required; just compile and load the module. USDT and syscall tracing and many of the other dtrace goodies. Still pre-release but you can see
it
