So, I'm going thru the userpace bits and stopped at the patch copying
include/uapi/linux/perf_events.h to
tools/include/uapi/linux/perf_events.h to get the text_poke
perf_event_attr bit, looked at tip/ and this hasn't landed there yet,
any issues with the kernel bits?

I can try to put a separate branch, merge the kernel bits, and do a pull
request to Ingo/Thomas to get that going, would that help?
