Robert, check out this thread on lkml:

[RFC][PATCH v2 06/11] perf: core, export pmus via sysfs

Here is Peter's post that describes the high level design:

http://groups.google.com/group/linux.kernel/msg/ab9aa075016c639e

And please help out Lin Ming with this work - we dont want
to add new, special-purpose ABI extensions for enumeration
purposes, it should be introduced using a new event_source
node via the sysfs enumeration.

Whether IBS fits that category is an open question -
ideally it should have similar high level usage as the
PEBS/LBR bits on Intel CPUs. (at least as far as tooling
goes)

Thanks,

Ingo
