SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] perf, powerpc: Allow perf test to handle PowerPC symbol naming
From
Date
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.

Cheers,
-Ian

> 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.
