2014-07-02arm: perf: clean up PMU namesMark Rutland
The perf userspace tools can't handle dashes or spaces in PMU names, which conflicts with the current naming scheme in the arm perf backend. This prevents these PMUs from being accessed by name from the perf tools. Additionally the ARMv6 pmus are named "v6", which does not fully distinguish them in the sys/bus/event_source namespace. This patch renames the PMUs consistently to a lower case form with underscores, e.g. "armv6_1176", "armv7_cortex_a9". This is both readily accepted by today's perf tool, and far easier to type than the (apparently unused) convention in use previously. The OProfile name conversion code is updated to handle this. Due to a copy-paste error involving two "xscale1" entries, "xscale2" has never been matched by the name OProfile name mapping. While we're updating names, this is corrected.

2012-07-09ARM: 7448/1: perf: remove arm_perf_pmu_ids global enumerationWill Deacon
In order to provide PMU name strings compatible with the OProfile user ABI, an enumeration of all PMUs is currently used by perf to identify each PMU uniquely. Unfortunately, this does not scale well in the presence of multiple PMUs and creates a single, global namespace across all PMUs in the system. This patch removes the enumeration and instead uses the name string for the PMU to map onto the OProfile variant. perf_pmu_name is implemented for CPU PMUs, which is all that OProfile cares about anyway.

2011-12-23oprofile, arm/sh: Fix oprofile_arch_exit() linkage issueVladimir Zapolskiy
This change fixes a linking problem, which happens if oprofile is selected to be compiled as built-in: `oprofile_arch_exit' referenced in section `.init.text' of arch/arm/oprofile/built-in.o: defined in discarded section `.exit.text' of arch/arm/oprofile/built-in.o The problem is appeared after commit 87121ca504, which introduced oprofile_arch_exit() calls from __init function. Note that the aforementioned commit has been backported to stable branches, and the problem is known to be reproduced at least with 3.0.13 and 3.1.5 kernels.

2011-02-10ARM: 6654/1: perf/oprofile: fix off-by-one in stack checkRabin Vincent
Since tail is the previous fp - 1, we need to compare the new fp with tail + 1 to ensure that we don't end up passing in the same tail again, in order to avoid a potential infinite loop in the perf interrupt handler (which has been observed to occur). A similar fix seems to be needed in the OProfile code.

2011-01-26ARM: oprofile: Fix backtraces in timer modeAri Kauppi
Always allow backtraces when using oprofile on ARM, even if a PMU isn't present. Restores functionality originally introduced in commit 1b7b56982fdcd9d85effd76f3928cf5d6eb26155 ("oprofile: Always allow backtraces on ARM") by Richard Purdie. It is not that obvious, but there is now only one oprofile_arch_init() function. So the .backtrace callback is available also in timer mode. Implemented by removing code and using stubs for oprofile_perf_{init, exit} provided by <linux/oprofile.h>. This allows cleaning of other architecture specific implementations too.

2010-10-11oprofile: Abstract the perf-events backendMatt Fleming
Move the perf-events backend from arch/arm/oprofile into drivers/oprofile so that the code can be shared between architectures. This allows each architecture to maintain only a single copy of the PMU accessor functions instead of one for both perf and OProfile. It also becomes possible for other architectures to delete much of their OProfile code in favour of the common code now available in drivers/oprofile/oprofile_perf.c.

2010-08-31ARM: oprofile: fix and simplify init/exit functionsWill Deacon
Now that oprofile_arch_exit is only called when the OProfile module is unloaded, it can assume that init completed successfully and not have to worry about double frees or releasing NULL perf events. This patch ensures that oprofile_arch_init fails gracefully on ARM and simplifies the exit code based on the above.

This is a reworking of an original patch posted by Aaro Koskinen: oprofile does not work with PM, because sysdev_suspend() is done with interrupts disabled and oprofile needs a mutex.

2010-05-17ARM: 6072/1: oprofile: use perf-events framework as backendWill Deacon
There are currently two hardware performance monitoring subsystems in the kernel for ARM: OProfile and perf-events. This creates the following problems: 1.) Duplicate PMU accessor code. Inevitable code drift may lead to bugs in one framework that are fixed in the other. 2.) Locking issues. OProfile doesn't reprogram hardware counters between profiling runs if the events to be monitored have not been changed. This means that other profiling frameworks cannot use the counters if OProfile is in use. 3.) Due to differences in the two frameworks, it may not be possible to compare the results obtained by OProfile with those obtained by perf. This patch removes the OProfile PMU driver code and replaces it with calls to perf, therefore solving the issues mentioned above. The only userspace-visible change is the lack of SCU counter support for 11MPCore. This is currently unsupported by OProfile userspace tools anyway and therefore shouldn't cause any problems.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
