[POWERPC] Oprofile enhanced instruction sampling support
Oprofile enhanced instruction sampling support. When performing instruction sampling, the mmcra[SLOT] field can be used to more accurately identify the address of the sampled instruction. Tested on power4, js20, power5 and power5+. Signed-off-by: Will Schmidt <will_schmidt@vnet.ibm.com> cc: Maynard Johnson <maynardj@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>
