    Subject[RFC][PATCH 000/002] Add timestamp to process event connector message
    From
    Date
    	This series of patches adds a timestamp field to the events sent
    via the process event connector. The timestamp allows listeners to
    accurately account the duration(s) between a process' events and offers
    strong means with which to determine the order of events while also
    avoiding the addition of per-task data.

    Series:

    getnstimestamp.patch
    proc-events-timestamp.patch

    The first patch adds a new generic function, getnstimestamp(),
    which gets an SMP-safe high-resolution monotonic timestamp.

    The second patch adds a timestamp field to the events sent via
    the process event connector and fills the field using the new timestamp
    function. It alters the size and layout of the event structure and hence
    would break compatibility if not incorporated with the first release of
    process events connector in a mainline kernel.

    Cheers,
    -Matt Helsley
