Subject: Re: linux-2.6.28-rc2 regression : oprofile doesnt work anymore ?

Andi,

your patchset breaks oprofile on Intel Core 2 cpus. I could bisect the
bug for c493756..5951290. Please take a look at this and send me a fix.

Thanks,

-Robert

    oprofile: Implement Intel architectural perfmon support
    
    Newer Intel CPUs (Core1+) have support for architectural
    events described in CPUID 0xA. See the IA32 SDM Vol3b.18 for details.
    
    The advantage of this is that it can be done without knowing about
    the specific CPU, because the CPU describes by itself what
    performance events are supported. This is only a fallback
    because only a limited set of 6 events are supported.
    This allows to do profiling on Nehalem and on Atom systems
    (later not tested)
    
    This patch implements support for that in oprofile's Intel
    Family 6 profiling module. It also has the advantage of supporting
    an arbitary number of events now as reported by the CPU.
    Also allow arbitary counter widths >32bit while we're at it.
    
    Requires a patched oprofile userland to support the new
    architecture.
    
    v2: update for latest oprofile tree
        remove force_arch_perfmon

    oprofile: Don't report Nehalem as core_2
    
    This essentially reverts Linus' earlier 4b9f12a3779c548b68bc9af7d94030868ad3aa1b
    commit. Nehalem is not core_2, so it shouldn't be reported as such.
    However with the earlier arch perfmon patch it will fall back to
    arch perfmon mode now, so there is no need to fake it as core_2.
    The only drawback is that Linus will need to patch the arch perfmon
    support into his oprofile binary now, but I think he can do that.
