    wonder if we can trick Arnd into doing that ...

    i cant find anything in Documentation/ covering perf counters. did i
    miss some file ?

    also, i was going just by a quick compile test. dont know what else
    is actually required since there's no chance of me trying to get this
    to work on Blackfin anytime soon ...

    there is also some ptrace type piece missing for the Blackfin arch,
    but that looks like something that i should just implement as everyone
    else is doing it.
