    What do you use instead?

    I've been actually thinking to add idle notifier support to oprofile to correct
    for the "perfctr doesn't tick in idle" issue which makes numbers not add up to 100%.
    A lot of people are currently running idle=poll to work around this and that is very
    wasteful.
