    What tree/branch are these patches taken against? They don't seem
    to apply against -rc3 or tip/master. Anyway, I currently have some
    pending patches to split up the monolithic perf_event.c we have for ARM
    so that different PMU implementations can live in different files (in
    the same way that x86 does it). This might mean that your initcall patch
    no longer applies because it will be a couple of thousand lines higher
    up in the file.

    The patches are available here:

    git://linux-arm.org/linux-2.6-wd.git perf-split

    I'll put these into Russell's patch system today so they should be
    candidates for 2.6.38.

    Good luck!
