the last big TODO item is to change the current JIT dump file conversion
The current state converting the JIT dump files with root privileges is
not secure and not recommended.
The decision was to change that processing to use a special user account
called 'opjit' with the special group 'opjit'.
The change is done in 2 steps:
1. Separation of the conversion process.
2. Implementation of using the new special user account to convert
the dump files.
Please review my patches and give comments on them.
Thanks in advance.
Here is the second patch to introduce the usage of the special user
account 'opjit' to do the conversion of the JIT dump files.
A check in the makefile is included to warn if the user account is not
The idea was to only check if the special user account exists because
there are many system environments where users who would use Oprofile
are not allowed to create user account by themselves. Therefore the
build process should not create that user account automatically.
