Subject[RFC PATCH 2/9] perf: Add ability to dump user regs
Date
Add new PERF_SAMPLE_UREGS to perf sample type. This will dump the
user space context as it was before the user entered the kernel for
whatever reason.

This is going to be useful to bring Dwarf CFI based stack unwinding
on top of samples.
