Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/4] perf: Allow ability to map cpus to nodes easily

Hi Don,

More generally, this sysfs access needs to check actual mountpoint using
sysfs__mountpoint() IMHO.

Also this API can be generalized like reading int value from a sysfs
file as the filename itself represents the content in most cases.

So how about changing this way?  It might reside on somewhere in tools/lib/api/fs/.

  max_cpu_num = sysfs__read_int("devices/system/cpu/possible");

  max_node_num = sysfs__read_int("devices/system/node/possible");


Hmm.. looking at the code, perf already has filename__read_{int,str} API
in util/util.c.  Maybe you can just use it instead.

Thanks,
Namhyung
