    Subject[PATCH 0/3] Generalise ARM perf-events backend for oprofile
    The perf-events backend for OProfile that Will Deacon wrote in
    8c1fc96f6fd1f361428ba805103af0d0eee65179 ("ARM: 6072/1: oprofile: use
    perf-events framework as backend") is of use to more architectures
    than just ARM. Move the code into drivers/oprofile/ so that SH can use
    it instead of the nearly identical copy of its OProfile code.

    The benefit of the backend is that it becomes necessary to only
    maintain one copy of the PMU accessor functions for each architecture,
    with bug fixes and new features benefiting both OProfile and perf.

    Note that I haven't been able to test these patches on an ARM board to
    see if I've caused any regressions. If anyone else could do that I'd
    appreciate it.

    This patch series is based on tip/master.

    Matt Fleming (3):
    sh: Accessor functions for the sh_pmu state
    oprofile: Abstract the perf-events backend for oprofile
    sh: Use the perf-events backend for oprofile
