[PATCH 0/4] perf, x86: Fixes for v2.6.39

From: Robert Richter
Date: Fri Apr 15 2011 - 20:36:17 EST

This patch series contains fixes for v2.6.39. They are related to the
AMD family 15h PMU but also modify x86 generic code. See the diffstat

If possible I would like to see patch #4 also in .39, though it is
more than just a one-liner with many changes in the x86 event
scheduling code. Without this patch scheduling multiple events on AMD
family 15h may fail under certain conditions though there are enough
counters available.


The following changes since commit e566b76ed30768140df8f0023904aed5a41244f7:

perf_event: Fix cgrp event scheduling bug in perf_enable_on_exec() (2011-04-11 11:07:55 +0200)

Andre Przywara (1):
perf, x86: Fix pre-defined cache-misses event for AMD family 15h cpus

Robert Richter (3):
perf, x86: Fix AMD family 15h FPU event constraints
perf, x86: Use ALTERNATIVE() to check for X86_FEATURE_PERFCTR_CORE
perf, x86: Fix event scheduler to solve complex scheduling problems
