portsnoop: trace event port activity

portsnoop is a DTrace script to trace event port activity on illumos-based systems. It traces:

* port\_get or port\_getn when either one fails or returns at least 1 event
* the first 30 events returned by each port\_get or port\_getn invocation
* all calls to port\_associate and port\_dissociate
* calls to read, write, accept, or close between a returned event and a call
  to port\_associate for the same file descriptor

There are probably useful cases that are missing. Contributions welcome.

Here's an example of watching Node.js:
