[PATCH 6/7] perf: Use hot regs with software sched/migrate events
Scheduler's task migration events don't work because they always pass NULL regs perf_sw_event(). The event hence gets filtered in perf_swevent_add(). Scheduler's context switches events use task_pt_regs() to get the context when the event occured which is a wrong thing to do as this won't give us the place in th... 25 Mar 2010 22:01

[PATCH 7/7] perf: Correctly align perf event tracing buffer
The trace event buffer used by perf to record raw sample events is typed as an array of char and may then not be aligned to 8 by alloc_percpu(). But we need it to be aligned to 8 in sparc64 because we cast this buffer into a random structure type built by the TRACE_EVENT() macro to store the traces. So if a rand... 25 Mar 2010 22:01
[PATCH 0/7] perf updates and fixes
Hi, The series is not yet mergeable because it would break PowerPc (hot regs snapshot API has been changed, and I don't know how to update PowerPc for that). But if you're fine with the ideas, I can integrate the necessary changes to fix this, and also separate fixes and updates. Thanks. Frederic Weisbec... 25 Mar 2010 22:01

How to insert splint info Makefile? Any idea?
Hi, I am working on linux-2.6.25. I would like to use splint. At one of the source directory, I typed "splint *.c". I got "Cannot find include file", "Cannot continue". I understand that I need to run splint inside the Makefile so that it will find the correct include files. However, how to insert splint info Makefi... 25 Mar 2010 23:11
