    dtrace probe not listed

    I do not see the function ifhwioctl listed when I run dtrace -l. This function is located in /usr/src/sys/net/if.c. I thought maybe this was optimized out, so I set the following in my /etc/make.conf CFLAGS= -O0 -fno-inline But it is still not listed. What may be causing this lack of probe?
