Oprofile v0.7, oprofile.html says in Chapter 3, section
1.2 "event specification is a colon-separated string of
the form name:count:unitmask:kernel:user"

while man opcontrol says 'The event is of the form
"CPU_CLK_UNHALTED:30000:0:1:1" where the numeric
values are count, unit mask, user-space counting,
kernel-space counting, respectively.'

(Note the reversal of user and kernel compared with
oprofile.html).

Experimentation suggests oprofile.html is correct and
the man page is wrong.
