Yes, this is true. The plan is to rework the code so that IBS is only
in op_model_amd.c. The only thing visible outside will then be the
code macros introduced in patch #9. The code will change into generic
with something like add_u64(). This function will then be called from
the IBS handler.

This is also the reason I did not add op_amd_handle_ibs() to the API
definition in linux/oprofile.h.
