BSE nanoengine git tree
Hi, I have been sending some patches to re-add BSA nanoengine support back into the kernel tree since 2.6.32 IIRC. Since none of them has made upstream, I have created a repository on github with the hope that people interested in the support for this board can test and/or give some feedback. For those intere... 31 May 2010 19:41
[PATCH 2/4] perf: Use event__process_task from perf sched
perf sched uses event__process_comm(), which means it can resolve comms from: - tasks that have exec'ed (kernel comm events) - tasks that were running when perf record started the actual recording (synthetized comm events) But perf sched can't resolve the pids of tasks that were created after the recording ... 31 May 2010 19:41
[PATCH 3/4] perf: Do the comm inheritance per thread in event__process_task
event__process_task() doesn't propagate the comm copy on clone, but only on process fork. So we loose all the tid:comm resolution for tasks that aren't a main process thread. Progragate the per thread granularity to event__process_task for pid resolution. This fixes various unresolved pids in perf sched, espec... 31 May 2010 19:41
[PATCH 1/4] perf: Process comm events by tid
When we synthetize the existing running tasks though procfs, we walk through every threads of a process, queuing one comm events per tid. But then on report time, event__process_comm() only creates and sets the comm on a per process granularity. This is the right thing for comm events that came from the kernel, ... 31 May 2010 19:41
