Subject[PATCH] basic perf support for sparc
Hi,

This adds the little necessary bits to get perf going at
least. Callgraph doesn't work, but basic profiling does.

Building the perf tool is somewhat involved on sparc64
though, since 64-bit versions of zlib/libelf/bfd aren't
directly available (at least on debian 5.x). But once you
get there, it runs :-). Would it be easier/functional
to build 32-bit userland perf instead?

$ perf record -f ls > /dev/null
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.004 MB perf.data (~194 samples) ]
$ perf report --sort comm,dso,symbol | head -n10
# Samples: 98
#
# Overhead Command Shared Object Symbol
# ........ ....... ............. ......
#
25.51% ls f7f62e00 [.] 0x000000f7f62e00
6.12% perf [kernel] [.] 0xfffff801007e4b38
6.12% ls [kernel] [k] sparc64_realfault_common
3.06% ls [kernel] [k] tg_shares_up
3.06% ls [kernel] [k] find_next_bit
$ perf record -f -g ls > /dev/null
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.005 MB perf.data (~223 samples) ]
$ perf report -g | head -n10
