Greetings everyone,

I am working on oprofiling target powerpc embedded system with oprofile-0.9.4/linux-2.6.24 and later analyze the result on host box (x86).

I am seeing some amount of hypersample warnings when running opreport (to generate callgraph) on the imported samples (opimport)

This is a simple program that spin/sleep.
warning: dropping hyperspace sample at offset 95830 >= 39c1 for binary /root/spin
warning: dropping hyperspace sample at offset 1c980 >= 39c1 for binary /root/spin

I am curious about the hyperspace sample and it seems the offset is really off. Though the sample is dropped, I am wondering if something went wrong with opimport (either that or the sample is bogus). Any help would be appreciated.

PS. sorry if the question has been asked multiple times.

Regards,

Mike
