Based upon a request from Stephen Rothwell, the owner of the linux-next tree,
I have setup a new perfmon GIT tree called linux-next.git. It will be
used to push
patches into Stephen's tree which eventually ends up in the mainline kernel.
I have populated the tree with the latest mainline kernel which is v2.6.28-rc3.
I have also integrated the latest quilt patch series into this tree
I will tell Stephen to pull from this tree in the coming day or two.
If you have time, it would be nice if you could pull form that tree, compile
and test on your system. Note that this tree contains the minimal perfmon3
interface (per-thread counting only) and support for Intel architectural PMU
and AMD AMD64 processors only. To test with pfmon, you need branch
perfmon3 of libpfm and pfmon (enable CONFIG_PFMON_PFMV3=y).
Trying to get this piece in 2.6.29...
To get the tree:
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/eranian/linux-next.git
