Should there be a schedfs created?

This is the reason I created the tracefs file system, was to get the
tracing code out of debugfs, as debugfs is a catch all for everything and
can lead to poor and insecure interfaces that people do not want to add on
systems that they still want tracing on.

Or perhaps we should add a "tunefs" for tunables that are stable interfaces
that should not be in /proc but also not in debugfs.
