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.
