[POWERPC] powerpc: Instrument Hypervisor Calls
Add instrumentation for hypervisor calls on pseries. Call statistics include number of calls, wall time and cpu cycles (if available) and are made available via debugfs. Instrumentation code is behind the HCALL_STATS config option and has no impact if not enabled. Signed-off-by: Mike Kravetz <kravetz@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>

+ help
+ Adds code to keep track of the number of hypervisor calls made and
+ the amount of time spent in hypervisor callsr. Wall time spent in
+ each call is always calculated, and if available CPU cycles spent
+ are also calculated. A directory named hcall_inst is added at the
+ root of the debugfs filesystem. Within the hcall_inst directory
+ are files that contain CPU specific call statistics.
+ This option will add a small amount of overhead to all hypervisor
+ calls.
