Hi ,

Thank  u for the immediate response .
I haven't done any kernel development related stuff before . Familiar with OProfile .
Can you suggest some enhancement or addition of features on OProfile  which can
be done as my project for 4 months .

It should be possible, but will add quite a lot of code and is not
a simple project. If you can do it in 4 months depends on your
previous experience. If you never did any kernel / CPU near development
before it would be quite challenging.

There's some code recently in the kernel to add support for jump
tracing, which implements part of the debug store infrastructure
needed for PEBS, but more is needed.
