[PATCH v4 12/13] perf: Dont adjust symbols on name lookup
Adjusting symbols is not needed if we are searching by name. Infact if we adjust and search symbols by name, we get incorrect results.

[PATCH v4 1/13] X86 instruction analysis: Move Macro W to insn.h
Move Macro W to asm/insn.h Macro W used to know if the instructions are valid for user-space/kernel space. This macro is used by kprobes and user_bkpt. (i.e user space breakpoint assistance layer.) So moving it to a common header file asm/insn.h. TODO: replace macro W with bits in inat table. (suggested by Ma... 18 May 2010 13:40

Hi, I'm currently digging into the splice code to figure out why it's always in copy mode even though I specified the SPLICE_F_MOVE flag and released the page references from the LTTng ring buffer. I'm splicing to a pipe and then from the pipe to an ext3 filesystem ( kernel). I've got the feeling I'm miss... 20 May 2010 10:33
