Initialization should simply fail with a printk message for this case,
implement function stubs for the !CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS case instead in
the oprofile.h header file.

I don't see a reason why this must be included here.

It's only for sh_pmu_name() and sh_pmu_num_events(), so the interface
looks wrong here. It should be in oprofile_perf.c. The functions
should be generic non-arch perf code. See below.

With that implementation we always have to touch the code for new
cpus. Maybe we derive it from the perf name, e.g. making all lowercase
and removing dashes?

Instead of exporting all the functions above implement something like:

name = op_name_from_perf_name(sh_pmu_name());
num_events = sh_pmu_num_events();
ret = oprofile_perf_init(ops, name, num_events);

We will then have only oprofile_perf_init() and oprofile_perf_exit()
as interface which is much cleaner.
