    SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH 05/11] perf: Generic perf_sample_data initialization
    From
    From: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl>
    Date: Wed, 03 Mar 2010 17:39:41 +0100

    > This makes it easier to extend perf_sample_data and fixes a bug on
    > arm and sparc, which failed to set ->raw to NULL, which can cause
    > crashes when combined with PERF_SAMPLE_RAW.
    >
    > It also optimizes PowerPC and tracepoint, because the struct
    > initialization is forced to zero out the whole structure.
