    SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] perf, powerpc: Allow perf test to handle PowerPC symbol naming
    Hi Paul,

    Can you take a look at this patch and ACK (or NACK) it and push it to
    Ingo? The two other patches in this series are already in
    tip/perf/core, we're just missing this one.


    Excerpts from Ian Munsie's message of Thu Nov 25 15:12:55 +1100 2010:
    > From: Ian Munsie <>
    > The PowerPC ABI prefixes symbol names with periods, which causes perf
    > test to fail when it compares the symbol from the vmlinux file with the
    > symbol names from kallsyms. This patch adds the infrastructure to allow
    > archs to override how symbol names are compared and implements the
    > PowerPC function to disregard any prefixed periods, allowing perf test
    > to pass.
