Hm, this looks very similar to the latest splash support as modified by Thomas.
The hooks in both patches are placed at exactly same positions.
This brings me to an idea of unification of both patces into one hook
support with 2 hooks - splash and probe (adding other hooks will be
deadly simple too).
Simo, Thomas, do you like this idea?
