    SubjectRe: [patch] Performance Counters for Linux, v3

    Given the level of abstractions you are using for the API, and given
    your argument
    that the kernel can do the HW resource scheduling better than anybody else.

    What happens in the following test case:

    - 2-way system (cpu0, cpu1)

    - on cpu0, two processes P1, P2, each self-monitoring and counting event E1.
    Event E1 can only be measured on counter C1.

    - on cpu1, there is a cpu-wide session, monitoring event E1, thus using C1

    - the scheduler decides to migrate P1 onto CPU1. You now have a
    conflict on C1.

    How is this managed?
