Subject: [PATCH 0/7] perf header: Save and reuse feature information in header (v2)


This is a v2 of my perf header cleanup series.  The v1 can be found
here [1].

Currently the perf header information is used only at initial setup
time and discarded.  If it's saved we could reuse the information for
various purpose in the future.

The patch 1-3 are cleanups so that they can be applied independently.

I also put the series on my tree at:

  git://  perf/header-v2

Any comments are welcome, thanks.


v1 -> v2:
 * not touch EVENT_DESC feature handling
 * split out struct perf_header_info
 * simplify multi-string handling
 * add some cleanup patches

Namhyung Kim (7):
  perf header: Use evlist->nr_entries on write_event_desc()
  perf header: Set tracepoint event name only if not set
  perf header: Swap pmu mapping numbers if needed
  perf header: Add struct perf_header_info
  perf header: Add ->process callbacks to most of features
  perf header: Use pre-processed header info when printing
  perf header: Remove unused @feat arg from ->process callback
