I suggested this a while ago during a discussion about performance
measurement. This would be fairly easy to implement using the patch
provided with the Linux Trace Toolkit since all entry points and
exit points are known (and it already is available in post-mortem
analysis). Implementing the measurement code within the kernel should
be fairly easy to implement and it would be provided as part of the
compile option. All in all, given the measurements I made, I'd place
the overhead at around 1% for the computations. (The overhead is very
likely to be negligeable when eventual fixes are taken into account.)
