Unfortunately, it's currently not possible.

It is definitely a problem that the latest Apache version of Hadoop
still uses HTrace 3.x.  We've been waiting for the Hadoop 2.8 release
for a while, to try to resolve this issue.
I wonder if it we could try to backport HTrace 4.x to 2.6 or 2.7?

One thing to keep in mind is that the HTrace 3.x code in Hadoop 2.6 and
earlier was not fully baked-- you have to wait until the 2.8 release to
get that.

Hmm. This would be a challenge.  A lot of things changed-- the size of
IDs, how libraries were handled, etc.
