95. Elena: Continue correspondance with RH legal regarding Elfutils license.

Martin has replaced the Runtime Map API with an improved design. Frank will
alter the translator accordingly to take advantage of the new API when he

Frank and Graydon have been in correspondance about the design of the
statistics feature soon to be incorporated into probe script language.
Graydon will post the model to the mailing list when it is complete.

Masami has implemented an updated IA64 Djprobes patch set and awaits review

Many F2F agenda items were discussed.

I currently have i386 patch only. I will develop and
provide x86_64 patch after i386 patch will be applied
by upstream.

And we need your help to develop IA64 version.

So, please correct it.
