[PATCH 0/23] updates for oprofile

From: Robert Richter
Date: Fri Jun 12 2009 - 09:14:35 EST

These patches are updates for oprofile, mainly for x86. Most patches
for x86 replace many macro definitions by function calls and implement
internal 64 bit usage for MSR access. The code is now better readable
and maintainable. Future changes can be made easier.

Also, struct op_x86_model_spec has been extended to better describe
the x86 model. This patch series introduces common functions that can
be used by all x86 models. It is a first step to merge similar model
specific code and to get a common code base for all models.

Another change is the rework of arch_perfmon init code. There was
model specific code in nmi_int.c. This code is moved to
op_model_ppro.c by using the init function pointer in struct

There are no functional changes in this patch set, it only contains
cleanups and reworks.
