Subject[2.4][PATCH] Use of Performance Monitoring Counters based on Model number
Date
From

Marcelo,

Attached is a small patch to make Linux kernel use of performance
monitoring MSRs based on known processor models. Future processor
implementation models may not support the same MSR layout.

The patch is already in 2.6, and this is a backport from there.
Note that the patch also adds support for extended family and
model numbers. This part also is a backport from 2.6.

Please consider applying.

Thanks,
-Venkatesh
