Ingo & Peter,

I have a rebased version containing also a merge from:

tip/oprofile -> tip/perf/core

Please pull again from:

git:// core

Yes, the patches went also upstream on Friday. Will update my current
patch stack now. Maybe it would have been better to first integrate
all pending patches before doing that split. Conflict resolution is a
pain for moving code. But anyway, it is supposed to go upstream and I
will rebase my patches.

Hmm, I was working with latest tip/perf/core, but I was waiting with
my submission for Peter's quilt queue since I know there were
conflicts again.

I will start submitting patches now relative to latest
tip/perf/core. There shouldn't be more patches flying around.

I decided to send the perf_event.h changes via the oprofile tree since
tip/perf/core was not stable enough. The patches contain cross
subsystem changes and are not only for perf. Perf-only patches I wont
send upstream via oprofile.
