I am running an ARMv5 based board (with an AT91SAM9G20 SOC) and wanted to use oprofile on it.
The system boots a 2.6.24-timesys-kernel, which has profiling support enabled.
As I got no samples from oprofiled I've had a look into the arch/arm/oprofile dir and wasn't surprised too much, that there is ARM oprofile support only for XScale and ARMv6 but not for ARMv5.
Question: Are there any efforts to get oprofile run on an ARMv5 architecture?
If light be the brightest light, wherefore it then does shadow cast?

No, there are no kernel patches available for this cpu.
