Oprofile support on laptops etc. using a periodic RTC interrupt
to profile has just been committed to CVS. It's only lightly tested,
and there are a couple of UI things to finish, so it would be good
if people could test it (new code, so there's a risk it'll crash badly,
but it works OK for me).
You can "fake" such a CPU by define FORCE_RTC in module/op_init.c
Also in current CVS is Phil's experimental 2.2 backport, but that's
probably even more risky to test out ;)
Thanks to Bob Montgomery for the original RTC patch; Bob, hopefully the new
code will make things simpler for your stuff, shout if you see a problem.
