    Subject[PATCH 0/9] oprofile: port to the new ring buffer
    This patch set ports cpu buffers in oprofile to the new ring buffer
    provided by the tracing framework. The motivation here is to leave the
    pain of implementing ring buffers to others. Oh, no, there are more
    advantages. Main reason is the support of different sample sizes that
    could be stored in the buffer. Use cases for this are IBS and Cell spu
    profiling. Using the new ring buffer ensures valid and complete
    samples and allows copying the cpu buffer stateless without knowing
    its content. Second it will use generic kernel API and also reduce
    code size. And hopefully, there are less bugs.

    The patch set is also available here:
