Subject[PATCH 1/2] perf, tools: Support direct --user-regs arguments
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

USER_REGS can currently only collected implicitely with call graph
recording. Sometimes it is useful to see them separately, and
filter them. Add a new --user-regs option to record that is similar to
--intr-regs, but acts on user regs.
