    Subject[2.6.24 patch] Fix blackfin HARDWARE_PM support
    (Robin, can you check if this patch does what is currently intended with
    HARDWARE_PM please ? This involves testing with CONFIG_OPROFILE y/m/n.)

    This patch restores the blackfin Hardware Performance Monitor Profiling
    support that was killed by
    commit 09cadedbdc01f1a4bea1f427d4fb4642eaa19da9.

    Since there seems to be no good reason to behave differently from other
    architectures, it now automatically selects the hardware performance counters
    whenever the profiling is activated.

    mach-common/irqpanic.c: pm_overflow
    calls pm_overflow_handler which is in oprofile/op_model_bf533.c. I doubt that
    setting HARDWARE_PM as "m" will work at all, since the pm_overflow_handler
    should be in the core kernel image because it is called by irqpanic.c.

    Therefore, I change HARDWARE_PM from a tristate to a bool.

    The whole arch/$(ARCH)/oprofile/ is built depending on CONFIG_OPROFILE. Since
    part of the HARDWARE_PM support files sits in this directory, it makes sense to
    also depend on OPROFILE, not only PROFILING. Since OPROFILE already depends on
    PROFILING, it is correct to only depend on OPROFILE only.
