[PATCHv2 0/8] Fix perf probe issues on powerpc

From: Naveen N. Rao
Date: Mon Dec 15 2014 - 09:51:09 EST

This patchset fixes various issues with perf probe on powerpc across ABIv1 and
- in the presence of DWARF debug-info,
- in the absence of DWARF, but with the symbol table, and
- in the absence of debug-info, but with kallsyms.

Applies cleanly on -tip. Tested on ppc64 BE and LE.

Changes from previous version:
Addressed various review comments from Mike Ellerman largely to generalize
changes. Some of the simpler patches have been retained in their previous form
to limit code churn, while others have been generalized by introducing arch
helpers. Individual patches have more details.
