Subject[RFC PATCH -v2 0/4] Persistent events
Date
From: Borislav Petkov <borislav.petkov@amd.com>

Hi all,

off and on I get some free time to work on that, here's the latest
incarnation. It contains review feedback from the earlier round.

Patch 1/4 adds a trace_add_file() interface which adds an additional
file to debugfs, in this case the "persistent" file which contains the
normal perf file descriptor sys_perf_event_open gives to the perf tool.

IOW, one gets:

/mnt/dbg/tracing/events/mce/mce_record/
|-- enable
|-- filter
|-- format
|-- id
`-- persistent1

0 directories, 5 files

[ 1 is the CPU number so sticking all per-CPU descriptors in this
directory could get a little cluttered and ugly so I'll have to think
about that a bit more. ]

3/4 is the meat which adds <kernel/events/persistent.c> and 4/4 shows
how one can init a persistent event on a CPU.

What remains is adding code which can enable events on boot from the
kernel cmdline and more testing.

As always, comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks.
