John,

We have most of the changes ready and have been waiting for your response to Enio's
two comments on 01 MAR 2005 before implementing the rest of them.

Would it be OK if we resubmitted the already agreed to changes and do the following
for now:

Take advantage of the existing --reset and --save options of opcontrol by the following
placement of our files:

Intermediate files:
/var/lib/oprofile/samples/current/{anon}/TGID/ranges
/var/lib/oprofile/samples/current/{anon}/TGID/entries


Generated ELF file:
/var/lib/oprofile/samples/current/{anon}/TGID/anon-PROCESS_NAME.TGID

TGID is the actual tgid number and PROCESS_NAME is the actual name of the
process that has anonymous samples.

Modify the --dump option of opcontrol, and possibly --stop and --shutdown, to invoke
a standalone program that calls libopjdl.so to create the dummy ELF files.  This would
eliminate the need to modify opreport.
