ARM: 5849/1: ARMv7: fix Oprofile events count
On Oprofile ARMv7 the PMNC_D bit was set to lower the PMU IRQs and so to decrease the risk of errata #628216 from appearing. The effect of setting the PMNC_D bit is that the CCNT counter is divided by 64, making the program counter events count inaccurate. The new OMAP3 r4 cores should have that errata fixed. The PMNC_D bit should not be set, this patch fixes it. Signed-off-by: Jean Pihet <jpihet@mvista.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
