preliminary notes for 0.5.4 release
--- NEW FILE: oprofile-0.5.4 ---
OProfile 0.5.4 has been released. OProfile is still in alpha,
but has been proven stable for many users.
For 2.2 kernels, the module must be compiled as the same user
that owns the kernel source tree.
nosmp is not supported in kernels before 2.4.10 (bug #463087).
The pre-emptable kernel option is not supported in 2.4 (bug #478516).
Power management on laptops can be incompatible with OProfile in 2.4 (bug #554927).
The utilities op_start, op_stop, op_dump, and op_session have been removed,
as threatened in the last three releases. opcontrol is the replacement.
bug fix only release
